With fall in full swing and winter right around the corner, it’s easy to overlook summery gems like this. It’s got lyrics that you’re bound to catch yourself singing along with. Back that with simple guitar work, contagious organ chords, and smooth synths and you’ve got “The Struggle”. Los Angeles-based band Griz Adams is the new side project of Adam Roth and Fredrik Eriksson. They haven’t released any other tracks under the moniker but be sure to keep a look out for them to crank out more indie pop rock goodness.

It’s no secret that Krewella’s sensual vocals provide an excellent foundation for their original tracks and remixes alike. Last week, Pegboard Nerds released their monstrous remix of Krewella’s track “Alive” and now TMN favorite MitiS has released his equally impressive interpretation of the tune. Supporting Krewella’s vocals with the addition of crunchy synths and heavy wobbles MitiS absolutely destroys this remix. Grab this spectacular free download and make sure to show MitiS some love on Facebook.
Alive (MitiS Remix)
Time seemed to go by soooooo slllooooow as a kid. Minutes felt like hours, hours felt like days, and days (especially the ones counting down to your birthday or any holiday with gifts) felt like an eternity. And then one day you grew up. Now the days feel like milliseconds, the months about 5 to 10 minutes max, and the year?….Seriously, where does it go? Since most of our clocks tick with the fast forward button engaged it becomes way too easy to get lost in the blur. Unless, however, you bust out some your ninja skills on good ol’ grandfather time. Cause believe it or not, you have the power to slow down your pace, even if just for an hour or two. With a new weekly indie dojo as your arsenal, make a conscious effort to take a moment to yourself and absorb the world around you. The more time you make, the more time you will see.

On the first single from his highly anticipated upcoming album, Roc Nation’s J. Cole, comes hard. “Miss America” serves as both a homage and scolding of these beautiful United States of America. Cole produces a dark, fitting instrumental over which he spits consciously, and at times angrily, delivering his own State of the Union. As a young emcee of the highest caliber, the North Carolina native demonstrates his insight and intensity exuding the maturity of a seasoned veteran.
Stream this charged, and powerful, portrayal of the Cole World below, and make sure to show some support when the single hits iTunes tomorrow. Cole’s second studio album, Born Sinner, is due out January 28th. Mark your calendars.

Although most of Two Door Cinema Club‘s work is made up of instantly infectious treasures, the remixes are a different story. This one in particular, “Sun” by LOGO, takes its time warming up, with little waves of synth-y bursts during the verses; they’re pleasing, but also uneven, making you anxious for something larger, bigger to hold onto. But once the track finally hits its stride, about halfway through, it does what TDCC songs do best: washes over you completely, bathing you in beautifully glistening electro pop.
