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

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.

[Tribal Pop] Manicanparty EP

artworks-000060693912-1srype-original

The formidable duo from Minnesota first struck us with their anthemic single, “Rebels in the Light” late last year, and their self-titled EP, Manicanparty has finally arrived for us to relish.

The tribal rhythms throughout the EP are enough on their own to help any listener distinguish their sound from “just another pop band”. But the expressive lyrics carried with each note is what really stirred our interest and kept us listening. Every track shares a distinct narrative, and Jessica’s multifaceted vocals blend incredibly well with the variety of emotions you’ll feel throughout the album. Her clarion pitch reminds us of Dolores O’Riordan from the Cranberries with undertones of Ellie Goulding. Take a listen to “It’s In Her Eyes” and then to “Lonely Will Find Me”,  and you’ll know exactly what we mean. 

Jessica Corazza and Patrick Morrissey could definitely be on the up and rising, and we would not be one bit surprised if one of their songs make its way into the soundtrack of an upcoming film production.

It’s free for download, so why not give it a listen and drift off into the story of another for a little bit?

[Mashup] SomeKindaWonderful Vs Moby- Everything That Rises

SomeKindaWonderful Vs Moby- Everything That Rises

It takes a lot to take on a Moby track, and to do it with such finesse that the man himself would take notice. Well, that’s exactly what we have for you today.

Cleveland/Los Angeles based group SomeKindaWonderful have taken it upon themselves to combine their original “LaughOutLoud” m with Moby’s “Everything that Rises,” which is off his latest album, Innocents. Infusing their vocals with the cinematic style of Moby equates to something that’s quite moving, coming together in a harmonious synergy. The vocals seemingly fit perfectly with the flawless production from the master of seamless electronica.

With only a few tracks out, we’re already excited about SomeKindaWonderful. We can’t wait to hear more from this unique outfit.

[Glorious] James Vincent McMorrow – Cavalier

James Vincent McMorrow
Cavalier

Sometimes you hear a voice and it just gets stuck with you. There’s something about the tone, the vocalist’s pitch or even their presentation. Something about it just sticks. James Vincent McMorrow has one of those voices.

Letting the spotlight affix itself to McMorrow’s glorious tone and lyrics, “Cavalier” welcomes you in, gracefully floating over softly played keys. The first taste lasts for quite some time, building up in a manner that’s painfully exquisite. It’s not until two and half minutes in that we’re hit with an instrumental wave, bringing what was a soft and inviting folk tune into something larger than life. With cinematic cymbal crashes charging alongside of repeating lyrics, we find ourselves nodding and saying, “hell yes.”

Immediately following that “hell yes,” we belted out a “damn it,” when we remembered that the rest of his album, Post Tropical, isn’t out till January. Patience is a virtue, right?

[Alternative] Fyfe – Lies Pt. II

Lies Pt. II

Fyfe has already expressed his disdain for deceit once before, but it seems like he wasn’t quite finished with the topic. Hammering his point home for a second time, this sequel takes a much more minimalist approach than the original, with the UK crooner’s vocals floating seamlessly over a nearly vacant, serene ambient backdrop. It’s a truly beautiful song, and yet another gem to add to the London native’s excellent collection. Check out the single above, and make sure to grab yourself a free download of this wonderful tune.
