[Groove] TLC – Unpretty (Follow Me Remix)

TLC, the legendary American R&B trio, may have often times been better acknowledged for their incendiary offstage reputation rather than their seemingly vapid attempts to produce music for the soul. Regardless, TLC forged themselves an infamous role in late 90’s R&B with countless chart-topping singles. Today, Follow Me, a dynamic duo hailing from New York City; have transformed TLC’s single “Unpretty” into a groovy soul-filled ballad. This track demonstrates Follow Me’s impressive ability to expertly add copious amounts of groove to a truly nostalgic song in order to create what they call “Midnight Memories”. If you’re a fan make sure to download this free track and show Follow Me some love on Facebook.

Groundislava feat. Baths – Suicide Mission (Ryan Hemsworth Remix)

Dive into one of the more curiously catchy Ryan Hemsworth re-interpretations of “Suicide Mission,” a chillwave ballad of experimentation by the vastly talented Groundislava feat. Baths. The remix features layered breakbeat patterns interwoven between the heavily filtered ambient vocals that sway playfully throughout the tune. A flowing, faced paced ride, “Suicide Mission” is the perfect hand to hold on a midnight drive through your favorite overgrown trail road.

[Dubstep] Bon Iver – Woods (Zeds Dead Remix)

Dreams can come true. “Woods” from none other then Bon Iver gets a sexy dose of wobbles from Dubstep heavyweight Zeds Dead. We were recently blown away by ZD switching it up and remixing Totally Enormous Extinct Dinosaurs track “Household Goods”. This track is another step in that same direction, taking Bon Iver’s vocals and propelling them into bass heaven. It features some catchy 8-Bit mixed with low and heavy wobbles that blend together flawlessly. Zeds Dead completely murder this remix, showing again how versatile their productions can be. Cheers.

Native Daughters’ War Elephant:This One’s a Keeper!

When the post metal band ISIS disbanded, I was heartbroken. My friends tried to introduce me to other potential love-affair bands—Pelican, Russian Circles, Old Man Gloom. I was flattered, but I wasn’t ready. I mean, they’re cool bands and I do enjoy listening to them, but not on that level. They just weren’t my beloved ISIS. I almost gave up hope. Then came Native Daughters…

I may finally be getting over my heart break, because I’ve got a little crush on Native Daughters! The five piece band (two guitarists, a bassist and two drummers) offer lots to listen to, and to fall for, in this album.

“War Elephant,” the track which the album is named , contains a nod to influential post metal bands like ISIS and Neurosis by showcasing a slightly Old Western sound: The song opens with a brief narrative by what sounds like an old cowboy, spinning a story about a dream he had about being on horseback on a snowy pass, before launching into the music. The song moves the listener from twangy guitar riffs to crushing throbs of electric fury all carried by intricate, interlacing tribal drumming from two percussionists.

Native Daughters offers a little variety in other places of the album. “The Glowing” starts off with an uplifting excerpt from a speech about human consciousness, then builds a triumphant song with top shelf drumming and twinkling, high note guitar riffs that remind the listener a little of Explosions in the Sky and Red Sparrow. In other tracks like “Special Sauce,” Native Daughters provides a more feel good melody that reminds the listener of a more accessible Don Caballero.

Although Native Daughers may be still finding their musical identity throughout their debut album, their soul searching is natural for a freshman effort. And it’s a hell of a lot of fun to listen to their existential search!

In summation, Native Daughters a keeper; the kind of post metal band you can bring home to Mom and Dad: That is, if mom and dad don’t mind a little head banging!
