Some Weeknd-esque, new-level electro soul. Diplo did good. Also, a new sound for Usher & I’ll be honest…me likey. I would have gotten down to this in the gym at my 10th grade dance. And the chaperones wouldn’t have liked it. Who am I kidding? I’d dance atop a table to this at 28, wearing a business suit. Hot.
*Cue babies being made*
St. Vincent - Cheerleader
She’s aliiiiiiiive. A monster-sized Annie Clark as an art installation. Touché.
M.I.A. - Bad Girls (Official Video)
A blazing hot video with side shows galore to accompany the track posted below.
‘Live fast, die young, bad girls do it well.’ First single from the new album: catchy & dope all around.
A sloppy intro, but a fun mash-up-style remix for you this Friday. Jay-Z’s “Allure” from The Black Album mixed with Lana’s vocals from “Off To The Races. Holler Friday!
More often than not, I like to know about the artists whose music I post. A hobby of sorts. But when my friend, Robert, sent me this video, I couldn’t care less. Band members playing my most favorite elementary-school hand game, Slide. Bubble-gum Pop. A tinge of Eurythmics. A track sounding like something you’ve heard before, but you can’t quite put your finger on it. I’m sold. So here’s this video for a song from a band I know nothing about. Enjoy.
Swoony pop to start your Thursday right. We can all relate to referring to our “better self” in the third person. Probably because moreoftenthannot that self is at bay. Tennis’ new album, Young & Old, is to be released soon(ish).
Porcelain Raft - Unless You Speak From Your Heart
I’ve been raving about his album and how this guy is most def someone to look out for in 2012. Now, there’s a video to accompany my IToldYouSo.
The last of the bunch. I
This remix was the winner of the Yelle remix competition. Could drink champagne to this poolside all day.
Reeemiiiixx Daaaaaaayy (did I use adequate e’s & i’s). Can’t Stop Won’t Stop.
She’s not a huge fan of remixes. But who passes up the opportunity to have David Lynch remix your track? So here we have the first and only official authorized Zola Jesus remix, “In Your Nature,” as heard through the ears of Mr. Lynch himself.
Put me in a stellar mood this morning. The original itself is great, but I’m a sucker for a RAC remix. One of my favorite remixes from 2011.
Lana Del Rey - Born To Die (PDP 13 Remix)
Lana just got the remix treatment from our favorite Blur & Gorillaz frontman, Damon Albarn. Under the pseudonym PDP 13, Albarn strips the original song of its orchestral layer & creates a bass-heavy club track from the gloomy pop track. The result? The remix we all didn’t know we wanted.
A newly-released video for Active Child’s dreamy, cathartic, and ethereal, “Hanging On.” Instead of taking you to space, as the song’s sound would suggest, they take you through a journey following 2 fisherman. But lonely men, tons of snow, foggy woods, & a plethora of fish all still work for this hauntingly spacey jam.
And you know you thought El Guapo & sweaters when I said plethora. Caught you.
