TV On The Radio – “Mercy”

TV On The Radio - Mercy

TV On The Radio have always been hit or miss with me. But when they hot, man they knock it out of the park. “Mercy” is another propulsive and driving rocker in the vein of “Wolf Like Me”. Perfecto.

Remix Party Playlist Vol. 59 – 1.27.2012 [Capital Cities, Dada Life, Mord Fustang, Chiddy Bang, and more…]

Its been awhile since I released a Remix Roundup. Yeah, I know blah blah…  What if i told you that I have one in the batters box and another on deck… just waiting there patiently, ready to slap you in the face with this waffle here (Baseball reference in 2012- check).  BTW, this waffle is made of plastic and it might hurt.

Tis Friday folks.

Nurd On.

♫ Capital Cities – Safe and Sound (d’Anconia Remix) / First off, this original tune was one of my 2011 favorites and I really enjoyed the Discotech remix just recently released…  BUT, this version is so tough that I almost want to slap someone.  If this jam doesn’t top Hype, then I’ll be personally pissed.  Check d’Anconia on Facebook.

♫ Notorious B.I.G. – Going Back to Cali (Viceroy _Jet Life_ Remix) / Its not summer, but Vicerory will fill your speakers with those sunny good vibes.  Do yourself a favor..  go grab some CapriSun and enjoy this one.

MAXIMUM BALLOON strikes like a rump quaking and shoulder shaking TIGER

we’re so hung up, like tiny pictures

♫ Maximum Balloon – Tiger (Feat. Aku)

When I first heard this song over a month ago it was only a stream so I had no mp3 but already in that moment I grabbed the album art and sat it on my desktop as a reminder to not forget about tracking it down. Well, vacation over and detective work done, I present the first taste of Maximum Balloon, the side project of TV On The Radio’s resident white dude producer Dave Sitek. “Tiger” clocks in at barely 2 minutes but so far that’s just maximizing it’s repeatability and making me hungry for more! Gotta love that grinding synth, funk-tastic beat, and super guitar riffage! I don’t always vibe 100% with TVOTR but something tells me that this project will be right up my alley. Maximum Balloon’s full album with all of it’s guest vocalists came out yesterday and I’m hoping to get my hands on a copy (ahem!) so I can get a little self-fulfilling prophecy thing going on over here…
