Deadmau5 – The Veldt (Evan Duffy Piano Cover)

Piano covers are particularly interesting as they often expose the underlying composition and structure of a track. The most successful producer in electronic dance music are often the ones that employ a level of classical understanding to their note progressions and melodies (Wolfgang Gartner, Deadmau5, Porter Robinson). Evan Duffy is a composer from Virginia who just few hours ago uploaded this clip of him covering Deadmua5’s The Veldt. The delicate and stripped away rendition by Evan of one of the most popular songs this summer is a wonderful reminder of how the basic elements in music are often the most powerful.

Passion Pit – Take A Walk (Peking Duk Remix)

American electropop group Passion Pit will be releasing their sophomore album Gossamer July 24th, 2012. As we all anxiously wiggle our thumbs to its marvelous arrival, Canberra-based duo Peking Duk took matter into their own hands enhancing Passion Pit’s first single “Take A Walk” to new melodic heights.

The added build ups that are intelligent design using the original sound structure, paired with a much pronounced bassline that yet doesn’t over power the vocals are refreshing new edits as we await the release of Gossamer .

[MP3 Playlist] Indie Dojo (May 2012 Round #4)

There are many, many, many elements to a good song. Not necessarily a spectacular song either, just a good one. The obvious ear winners being the usg. The musicianship, the lyrical content, the yada, yada, yada. But what about the smaller stuff? The elements that usually go unnoticed. Like a random song playing in the background at work. You may not hear it, or even care really, but if you take a second to notice your surroundings, you might find you aren’t ridden by the anxieties and stress of your every day life. You are actually quite calm, cool and collected. Could it be a song you never thought you’d like but actually seem to enjoy? Most likely, yes…..So, the next time you find yourself in a cloud 9 state with no real rhyme or reason, take notice to the music that lays perfectly in your presence. You are now broadening your musical library by being aware of just one tiny element…

[Soundtrack] HOUSE Series Finale (Season 8 Episode 22) ‘Everyone Dies” + Swan Song [Ending]

It has concluded. Eight wonderful years of the TV SHOW House M.D. ended on a spectacular finale. Before we get to the ending of House Series finale soundtrack (Season 8 Episode 22) titled ‘Everyone Dies”, we have to give some credit to the Special mini doc ‘Swan Song’ featuring a coupe of great tracks from Champion Jack Dupree, The Platters and Caroline Patterson.

Here are the songs from Swan Song in list form (Preshow Special).

John Barry Orchestra – James Bond Theme (From “Dr. No.”)
Champion Jack Dupree – Junker’s Blues by
Caroline Patterson – The Tennessee Waltz
(Footage of the wrap party with Jesse Spencer on violin & Hugh Laurie on piano.)
The Platters – Glory of Love

And finally, iHOUSE MD Soundtracks have always catered that very last moment of the episode where emotions are usually running high. Two outstanding tracks were featured. The first is by the late American rock singer-songwriter Warren Zevon with the heart warming song “Keep Me In Your Heart” playing through the montage. And the very end of the episodes just before we are cut off from the ending credits one last time, was by Louis Prima with the tune titled “Enjoy Yourself”. I have listed them bellow:

’Warren Zevon – Keep Me in Your Heart’
’Louis Prima – Enjoy Yourself (It’s Later Than You Think) ‘

It saddens me to say this will be the last Soundtrack post for House, having the series finale “Everyone Dies” (Season 8 Episode 22) come to an end. Life does go one and if the soundtrack taught us anything, is to Enjoy Yourself.
