Holding On For Life

Broken Bells–the eclectic pairing of Danger Mouse and James Mercer from The Shins–are finally ready to embark on a new journey together, gearing up for the release of After The Disco, the follow-up to their 2010 self-titled debut. The first offering from the project, “Holding On For Life,” feels like the beginning of a funky, psychedelic spage-age odyssey, which might explain why the band has also put together an accompanying sci-fi film starring Kate Mara and Anton Yelchin. You can check out the first part of the Jacob Gentry directed series after the jump. Stay tuned for more from Broken Bells ahead of their album release on January 14th.

[Event Preview] Toro Y Moi + Classixx (Live) at The Ogden Theatre – Denver, CO – 11/6/13

Toro-Tour-poster

Fresh off the heels of one of our favorite albums of 2013 thus far and his third full-length under the Toro Y Moi moniker, Anything In Return, Chaz Bundick’s Berkeley-via-South Carolina music project once again touches down in Denver, CO at The Ogden Theatre this Wednesday, November 6 for what looks to be an amazing night also featuring L.A.’s rising house music heartthrobs  Classixx and their new live show. Not one to be pigeonholed into any single genre, each of Toro Y Moi’s respective releases have been far and away a different animal than the previous, using structural production elements from pop, indie, garage, chillwave, house and more to result into one of our favorite live acts around and a can’t miss for our TMN family.

Rounding out the amazing bill is aforementioned production duo, Classixx, who are also riding the waves of momentum from a sonically captivating debut long-player of their own which was actually many years in the making, Hanging Gardens. Classixx brings their new live performance with them after years as touring DJ’s and they are already welcome faces to the Denver dance scene after delivering solid performances in 2013 at both the Norad Dance Bar and The Ogden; so we expect a raucous crowd to begin piling in as soon as doors are opened. For our Denver Ninjas, you can buy your tix here, and we’ll see you on the floor this Wednesday! In anticipation of Wednesday night’s show, you can stream Toro Y Moi’s “So Many Details” off of Anything In Return and Classixx’ viral hit from Hanging Gardens “Holding On” below. Enjoy.

[Disco-House] The 1975 – Girls (The Knocks Remix)

The 1975
Girls (The Knocks remix)

Oh boy, do we love when remix duties are symbiotically thought out rather than the product of two talent agencies trying to highlight their respective artist du jour. So for us, it was a match made in indie heaven when production duo The Knocks took on the task of reinvigorating Manchester lo-fi garage-poppers The 1975 and their single “Girls” (which comes as part of their debut self-titled album) into a scooting clubland anthem. After being called upon for official remixes to the likes of indie stalwarts like HAIM, Of Monsters and Men, Grouplove, Foster the People and Two Door Cinema Club it was high time that they were called upon to work some of their big-room disco shimmer onto an emotive and dreamy tune. The Knocks’ take “Girls” to new heights with airy synth stabs, and a very nice play by pitching down Matthew Healy’s super recognizable croon and folding it back in with the original vocal track.  Expect to hear this one in many a disc-jockey’s set this season, and be ready for the full release on November 11.

Hold On, We’re Going For The Remix – The Best Remixes & Covers of Drake’s “Hold On, We’re Going Home”

Drake-Hold-On-Were-Going-Home-1

Last week was Drake‘s birthday (October 24th), and in order to properly celebrate his 27th year on this earth, we’ve put together a nice little belated gift for October’s Very Own. Below we’ve compiled 22 (because 20 just wasn’t enough) of the best covers and remixes of possibly the most addicting single to drop this year, “Hold On, We’re Going Home.” It’s almost astonishing how many unique renditions of the track we were able to find during our search, making it incredibly tough to narrow down our selection. Nonetheless, we’ve broken them down for you into two separate collections of 11 songs each, listed in no particular order. Even the staunchest Drizzy haters will find something to enjoy here, with revisions that range from the garage rock stylings of Arctic Monkeys to the festival friendly Max Methods refix and everything in between.

Check out all the different selections below, and let us know if there’s any that we might’ve missed!

[Video] Carousel – Another Day

Another Day

It’s been a little while since we’ve heard from our favorite Happy-Dance duo Carousel, as they have been on tour or locked inside of their studio for the past handful of months, so when their brand new music video for one of our favorite singles off of their recent Palms EP, “Another Day”came across our desks, it was met with a beaming grin. The video, directed by Felipe Torres Urso, follows a very fraternity-associated looking young man into a Summer pool party as through the eyes of a very young girl and her dolls and then on a day with a beautiful girl, which conceptually unfolds quite well in an artistic and simple manner. Enjoy the official music video for “Another Day” below and if you haven’t already picked up a copy of the excellent Palms you can do so after the jump for the price of just your e-mail.
