TBE Digest 12 – 8.25.10 [Civil Civic, The Knocks, Wale, Pete Yorn, Weezer, Passion Pit, …]

A month away from high speed internet will do a lot to a man so while I readjust myself to city living let me drop this round of Digest jams on you. Some of them aren’t the most timely but thankfully you understand. Some great tracks in here! Nice to see new freshness from Civil Civic, Young Empires, and The Knocks. Plus Passion Pit cover Smashing Pumpkins? Hot dog! Rock on and drop a thought in the comments!

♫ Civil Civic – Run Overdrive / One of the year’s best EPs gets followed up by this rollicking single which is B-sided by a track called “Fuck Youth.” Read more

Remix Roundup Vol. 21 – 5.6.10 – EPIC!!!!

I feel like we know each other well enough that I can be honest with you, right? Well I gotta say that sometimes I put a remix in one of these roundups that I am not totally in love with but is interesting/unique/whatever. I just want you to know that even though this is the longest roundup ever at 17 tracks this is not one of those cases. All these jams are going off and I am soooo stoked to be delivering them to you! Dive in! The water is hott!

THE KNOCKS know that sometimes we all BLACKOUT

you say we had a conversation but all i remember is…

♫ The Knocks – Blackout

It’s Friday and we deserve this. You may remember The Knocks from when they were rockin our socks last summer. Well, they are back and they have an anthem for our Friday night. Or Saturday morning, rather. Anyway, we have all been there and although it’s not the most desirable destination it’s certainly not the worst. Go forth. Be awesome. And if tomorrow morning this song happens to be about you then it just means you had a good time. Trust me.

The Knocks – Can’t Shake Your Love

Andrew W.K. recently released a mixtape called DAMN! and when I heard a preview of it I was not into it and moved on. Then I stumbled across this track from The Knocks and was like “DAMN!” which is appropriate because apparently it is on DAMN! although I would have never guessed. If the rest of the mixtape has jams like this perhaps I should get it. Anyone? The Knocks are a production duo out of NY and although I don’t see any evidence of an album they have a handful of pretty sweet remixes at their MySpace. I might have to do some digging for the next Remix Roundup
