That was quite a ride, apartment hunting wasn’t easy looking for somewhere temporary less than a year, pure stupidity to attempt such a task but I made it happen. With all that looking and stress, I totally forgot about the little things like getting internet and listening to music altogether. It’s all done now, except for the annoying lady downstairs who complains we’re somehow making too much noise while napping, maybe it’s the garbage chute right beside your god damn apartment or the garage right underneath? My friend said it best, make better life decisions, if you want quiet buy a more quiet unit. As for the blog? A thousand unread emails in my inbox later, I’ll be here, not like I was in 2008 where I posted 1-2 times a day, but it’ll be more than zero times a month I’ll promise you that much. Those emails will probably never be read, so if it was really important you might want to email again. Other things I missed? The new Arcade Fire album which is seemingly the revival of their music. I am super excited about this one and will have to drop by the music store to pick it up.
Let’s start off this resurrection with some tracks from this week. First off is the Anoraak remix of Neon Indian Psychic Chasms, a band I haven’t given enough attention to on this blog. Very chillwave as wiki put it. Second is the Fred Falke remix of Florrie, this is like the third or fourth great remix coming from that pair. Really liking the beats, as usual from Fred Falke that’s of no surprise. And lastly, The Ooga Booga remix of Futurecop! which really really reminds me of the good old days. I can always trust Futurecop! to do that for me. I’ll listening to more music from my inbox and spread around more, expect less top week tracks. I’ll be less lazy.

Florrie attack!! I found a couple Florrie tracks and remixes that I couldn’t help but post. Mind you, you can actually get all these tracks off her website, make sure you check that out. Starting off with her own remix of her track Call 911 which is from her first single, I’ve listened to this track at least a dozen times today and I can’t get enough of it. The next tracks is the remix of Florrie’s Panic Attack by Justin Faust, the last track being the instrumental version of this remix. Justin Faust, I love you because this is the sound I absolutely love and it seems to be fading away slowly from the mainstream, but you have brought it back to me with a vengeance!

Starting off with quite the festive remix by Fool’s Gold of Marina and the Diamonds I Am Not a Robot. It’s got two interesting sounds, the festive solo in the middle and the retro beat with the vocals. Really enjoyed this track. Second is the Fred Falke extended mix of Florrie Panic Attack. He really likes Florrie, this is the second time at least from what I’ve seen that he’s remixed her music. Weirdly enough in a deja vu kind of way, in that post I also posted a remix by Passion Pit of Marina and the Diamonds. I guess these two come together as a package. As usual from Fred Falke, j’aime votre musique. And lastly, a new original from Dan Sena, With Heavy Hearts. Electro club? Very nice, well played out track.

So I thought to myself, should I start off the week with a nice soft sounding post, possibly an album review or something. Nah, we’re going with some electro in the morning. Starting off with an older remix, the Grum vocal remix of Passion Pit‘s To Kingdom Come. I have always enjoyed Grum remixes, just the right amount of everything. Second is the Passion Pit remix of Marina and the Diamonds. See, the two are related, clever. She might hate this comparison because she must get it from time to time, but sounds a little bit like Shakira? Whatever, Shakira has quite the voice anyways so that’s a compliment. And lastly, some soft electro to end off the post, Fred Falke‘s remix of Florrie‘s Call 911.
