Band of Horses – Knock Knock (Official Video)

band of horses mirage rock

A few weeks back, Band of Horses released their sneak-peek single, “Knock Knock,” off their upcoming fourth album, Mirage Rock. Without any further prolonged ado, I present to you the quirky homage to retro wilderness television programs that is the “Knock Knock” music video. The perfect combination of throwback and wild, it’s entertaining and humorous to hear this fun and groovy clap-anthem set to a lecture hall VHS.

Remember. New album, Mirage Rock, comes out September 18th.

Everyone and their brother has sampled Adele, so it takes someone pretty special to make a contribution from her memorable.

Adele’s soulful vocals add to Astro’s flow, creating an incredible track which will delight his fans. ‘Goodnight America’ is the opening track for Johnny Astro’s ‘TheWorldEnds’ mixtape, out soon.

[Dubstep/Electro/Moomba] Skrillex & Damien “Jr. Gong” Marley – Make It Bun Dem After Hours EP

Earlier this year, Skrillex, OWSLA founder and arguably the biggest name in the dubstep scene, released a reggae infused dubstep banger with the help of Damien “Jr. Gong” Marley. Now after a few months of letting the original bask in its well-deserved glory, Skrillex and his cohorts have prepared six diverse remixes of “Make It Bun Dem” as part of the Make It Bun Dem After Hours EP. The EP features remixes from the likes Culprate, David Heartbeat, Flinch, Brodinski, French Fries, and the elustrious Alvin Risk. All of the tracks are refreshingly unique interpretations of the original ranging in genres from trap to acid-house, so make sure to give the entire EP a listen to decide which is your favorite.

[Indie] River James – In My Blood

51lo3ekkbl

Four guys set out on a trip to canoe down the James River in Virginia. What happened on that trip was so profound it created music. Returning home the men that make up River James found themselves in a spot where words alone were no longer the right medium to convey to any fellow human being the intensity and emotion that their trip gave to them. No dreams of champagne baths, no starry-eyed A-list celebrity hopes, just four guys collectively reminiscing over their trip using nothing more than instruments and a voice. Thoughts of moments passed rain down through the lyrics, as this band brings a nostalgic realm to this inspiring track.

Buy the River James EP on their Bandcamp page.

[Nu-Disco] Alison Valentine – Peanut Butter (Moon Boots Remix)

As summer begins to wind down, there now more than ever seems to be an unprecedented need for light summery tunes which evoke pure nostalgia of the sense of freedom and past experiences of the season. Today, Chicago based producer, Moon Boots has done just that. Remixing Alison Valentine’s hit single “Peanut Butter,” Moon Boots adds a tasteful amount of bounce and bass, which smoothly blends with Valentine’s vocals to create a definite nu-disco summertime jam. In the words of Moon Boots,

“She brought me flowers, I made her a remix.”

Kick back, relax, download the track and enjoy these final breaths of summer.

Passion Pit – Take A Walk (Chew Lips Remix)

British duo Chew Lips put a truly interesting twist on hit “Take A Walk,” approaching it with a more subdued mindset. On this remix, the original track’s light, poppy aura is stripped away, revealing a much sparser and poignant tone. Though it’s a bit more somber than what we’re used to from Passion Pit, and while we’re more accustomed to bands adding to instead of taking from when it comes to remixes, it’s really fascinating to see a familiar song re-imagined in a completely different way.

Chew Lips’ new single, “Hurricane,” comes out September 3rd. Passion Pit’s latest album, Gossamer, is out now.
