Ready for an Off the Radar Summer Mixtape? Of course you are! Haven't done one in awhile. Figured it's about time, plus hopefully get you excited for the week-end!!
Most of these are random tracks that I haven't been able to fit into a post and have been accumulating in my playlists, but I think are blog worthy. Don't you just love us?
First off here's a couple of my favorite tracks from the Danger Mouse/Sparklehorse collaboration 'Dark Night of the Soul'. The Flaming Lips' Wayne Coyne's opening track 'Revenge' is probably my favorite of them all. Such a beautiful slow song and great message. Can't get enough of it. The Julian Casablancas (Strokes) track 'Little Girl' is killer as well. Works well on the dancefloor too.
MP3: Revenge (feat. Wayne Coyne) - Danger Mouse & Sparklehorse (YSI)
MP3: Little Girl (feat. Julian Casablancas) - Danger Mouse & Sparklehorse (YSI)
Spoon recently released a 3 song single called 'Got Nuffin', (their first new music since 2007's Ga Ga Ga Ga Ga). Love them, but they should have just released the title track, it's the best one. Classic Spoon Rocker!
MP3: Got Nuffin - Spoon (YSI)
Islands unveiled a new single the other day called 'No You Don't'. Love them! This one's only 128 kbps, but hey you can get a listen. Can't wait for the upcoming full length 'Vapours'.
MP3: No You Don't - Islands (YSI)
Tanlines did this stellar Remix of Bombay Bicycle Club. Love BBC's vocals!
MP3: Dust on the Ground (Tanlines Remix) - Bombay Bicycle Club (YSI)
Bottin does some great housey stuff. This track of his 'No Static' is great for the club, especially early in the night to set the mood. Played it out quite a bit already.
MP3: No Static (Club Version) - Bottin (YSI)
Been loving the Crocodiles stellar debut album 'Summer of Hate'. Hard to find psychedelic rock that sounds this classic right off the bat. Here's one of my favorites 'Soft Skull (In My Room)'. When it kicks in about 14 seconds in it's a little piece of heaven. If you don't have it I highly recommend you pick it up! Grab 'I Wanna Kill' (my other favorite!) and 'Neon Jesus' on a previous post we did here.
MP3: Soft Skull (In My Room) - Crocodiles (YSI)
Another new album/artist that I'm digging is Pony Pony Run Run. Electronic dance pop fun! Check out opening track 'Out of Control' and single 'Hey You'. Grab some previous remixes we posted for them here.
MP3: Out of Control - Pony Pony Run Run (YSI)
