[NEW] Yeah Yeah Yeahs – Sacrilege

Not too long ago I posted Yeah Yeah Yeahs‘ “Maps” as I got all nostalgic and antsy for new music. Luckily for me and all you avid music fans out there, 2013 is shaping up to be one hell of a year for the industry in terms of comebacks, reunions and the like. The band, led by the always kooky and effervescent Karen O, will put out their fourth album Mosquito on April 16th, and today, BBC Radio’s Zane Lowe premiered this ultra, ultra new single called “Sacrilege”. Hit play, get excited, and start the countdown.

[Indie Rock] La Luz – Sure as Spring

Watch out contemporary music scene, there are some ladies from the Pacific Northwest that are imposing their will. “Sure as Spring” from La Luz is a great contribution to the world of indie psych-rock. The track has a unique balance of electricity and musicality. Based in Seattle and currently only signed by tape label Burger Records, I foresee the ladies of La Luz growing into their own within the next year and beyond. Keep an eye out. Until then, spin “Sure as Spring” and the rest of the Damp Face EP whenever you see fit.

[Dubstep] Purity Ring – Belispeak (PatrickReza Remix)

Leave it to PatrickReza to once again pick the perfect songs to remix. We see many producers squander their opportunities trying convert a subtle and delicate track into the next club banger. And this is truly where PatrickReza excels, managing the original structure and sensibility of its predecessor but elevating the track with just enough layers of rapturous wobbles and melodies. His latest victim, the gorgeous single ‘Belispeak’ off the debut album of Canadian electronica duo Purity Ring, comes engorged with a bouncy structure that is bound to make any indie lover groove. Even if this perhaps is a departure from Reza’s past releases containing much darker themes, the new remodel still offers gritty and deep baselines among brighter dancier elements. Download it for Free below.
