Nah, this new post doesn’t mean that I found an apartment. I’m still looking and Sept 1st is coming really quickly, STRESS, but I got a chance to listen to some music at work today and it’s sounding pretty good. Surprising, compared to the rest of the summer. That’s right, fuck you Train with your Hey, Soul Sister. I can’t describe how annoying it is to walk in a mall and hear the song playing in every store I go into, go outside and hear some guy playing it in his car, get home and the radio is on with the DAMN song playing. Why do radio stations do it? It’s like they have a playlist of five songs and just put it on repeat.
Let’s start off with some one of my favorite bands of this … quarter of the decade, Vampire Weekend. The Miike Snow remix is pretty great, I love the added tunes to the song. Strangely with a very similar feel, the Grum remix of Marina and the Diamonds. I’ve always loved Grum remixes, that retro disco sounding electro? My love? I thought it died, but it’s still here! Fantastic. And lastly, the Blackbird Blackbird remix of Local Natives. Very wavy ambiance to the song. I’ve been meaning to get into Blackbird Blackbird, I’ll have to get the albums.

Marina and the Diamonds – Oh No! (Grum Remix)
Local Natives – Camera Talk (Blackbird Blackbird Remix)
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.
