[Disco/Indie-Dance] Odesza – All We Need (Haywyre Remix)

Odesza
All We Need (Haywyre Remix)

I swear, Haywyre can do no wrong. Whether it’s originals or remixes, like his latest one of Odesza, he manages to create works that stand out to an extraordinary degree. He’s been playing this flip of “All We Need” in his sets, and I can only imagine how the crowds have reacted to it. This genre melting pot he cooked up is already blowing up for good reason. With such a funky, future indie sound, this is a hallmark remix that stays incredibly entertaining from beginning to end. We can only hope for a live video of him playing this, like he has done for some of his works in the past. Even if not, the song is excellent enough to satisfy our Haywyre needs. Martin has released this remix for free, so go on and grab it above!

[Electro-Pop] Bad Wave – Lookout

badwave
Bad Wave
Look Out

It’s quite the known fact here at TMN that we cover a multitude of music genres. As a result, we try to make things a little easier for our readers by marking our posts with a genre tag. Sometimes though, it just doesn’t feel right pigeon-holing a tune into a specific niche when it could easily be listed under four or more. Such was the case when we came across the duo of Tucker Tota and Patrick Hart, or simply: Bad Wave. “Look Out” is the debut single from the L.A. based pair, and with its slick and rambunctious synth arrangements immediately has us conjuring up comparisons to the gritty dance and synth pop from DFA Records staples Holy Ghost! to vocal work paying ode to Phoenix’s Thomas Mars. Not a bad connection to draw for a first single at all. Furthermore, this one caught the attention of one of our favorite rising labels, Ghost Beach’s Crazy Heart Records (now also home to Karl Kling & Dart Party), which has only stoked our flame for Bad Wave’s eclectic take on pop. Let this one steer your disposition towards the sunnier side.

[Dance-Pop] Great Good Fine Ok – Too Much To Handle (Penguin Prison Remix)

Great Good Fine Ok
Too Much To Handle (Penguin Prison Remix)

It’s been a little over a week since Brooklyn’s fastest rising synth-pop sons Great Good Fine OK released their latest single “Too Much To Handle”, along with the news of a coinciding EP, cleverly compressed down to be named 2M2H. And, while we’ve simultaneously been tracking the rumblings out of the Penguin Prison studio, it was quite serendipitous that GGFO’s first installment in what will no doubt be a long line of remix attempts comes from Chris Glover’s dancefloor marked pop project. While a large chunk of the Penguin Prison sound has been forged behind hammer-sized 80′s synth-pop progressions, his latest offering is shot directly out of the club cannon. Featuring the kind of rolling drums which have permeated the UK ‘club-house’ scene for the last few years, and Jon Sandler’s lush falsetto; Penguin Prison offers us an alternately more brooding, less inspiriting lens through which to consume GGFO’s sterling original tune. And what a sultry lens that is. Be on the lookout for more official remixes on this one, as well as Great Good Fine OK’s 2M2H EP due out March 16th via Sony Music. Until then, stream Penguin Prison’s “Too Much To Handle” remix above.

[Nu-Disco] That’s Nice ft. Josh Moriarty – Holiday (Keljet Remix)

Holiday ft. Josh Moriarty (Keljet Remix)

What’s not to love about a feel-good tune dressed up in an indie dance outfit? The funky original by Mario Rdz a.k.a That’s Nice is getting remixed by Dutch producer Keljet., who spiced it up with a heavy disco vibe that works wonders. The vocals by Miami Horror’s lead singer Josh Mariarty are almost the perfect complement to the joyful instrumental by giving it a casual and summery approach and further accentuating the indie elements of the track. It’s one of those tunes where you’d absolutely fall in love with after the first listen.

This might just be your next favorite jam. If you want to get through the mid-week struggle, listen to this song and let it bring a smile to your face. Make sure to support these talented artists, as we’re beyond excited to see where their music is going.

[Dance/Synth-Pop] Penguin Prison – Never Gets Old

pp-never-gets-old
Penguin Prison
Never Gets Old

The transformation of Chris Glover from full-time Bard College student/part-time bedroom producer to international tastemaker and one of pop music’s only boundary pushing producers left standing as Penguin Prison has been an entertaining arc to monitor over the years. With every passing release, his work plays more fluently, sonic elements coalesce wondrously; while every kick, clap, and hooky synth progression is carefully layed out to aid an entire movement. Not to mention, this scrawny, (sorry Chris) Anglo-Saxon looking Caucasian boy belts out every inch of Penguin Prison vocal work, and executes his incantations with the type of careful, delicate but robust grandeur that would make Al Green tip a smile. To say we’re fans of Penguin Prison’s work would be to put it lightly. After arising from a brief hiatus which was filled mostly with fun-first remix projects and covers with convivial single “Calling Out” in October of last year, “Never Gets Old” is our first taste of a sophomore LP entry, slated for a May 5 release on the illustrious Downtown records. Glover immediately kicks into gear with a rolling guitar riff dipped in just a touch of reverb, a live four-four drum line and a succinctly faint synth mirror, before his more fully realized vocals slide in to steal the show. This one is just a pure feelgood anthem for what will no doubt be the foreseeable future, so hop on “Never Gets Old” before well… you know, it might get old.
