Been bumping this record album since Tuesday. Dark, chilling rock that needs to be listened to. No slump here. Danger Mouse, producer, made sure of that. Will probably rank high on our 2013 Best of List. Enjoy this record for the next seven days and get lost in yourself. You’ll be happy you did.
‘Reload’ is what you get when you put 1/3 of Swedish House Mafia, hookmaster John Martin, and Mr. Tommy Trash. Don’t be afraid. This probably gonna be my track of the summer. The video is epic adventure.
Beautiful People Say that Titanium was catchy. Now, Sia & David Guetta bring you their next tag team track. The beat hits harder than wildfire. This is ‘Beautiful People Say’.
SXSW’s standouts — CHVRCHES — have kicked up heaps of dust since March. They are probably one of the most anticipated acts of the summer. We’re checking them out this week to close out may. Take a listen to their catchy pop track entitled “Gun”. Surely, you love it because I do.
Your favorite Chiptune band — Anamanaguchi – released their ‘fooly cooly’ like music video for Endless Fantasy, the title track from their kickstarter supported 2013 record, over the holiday weekend & I absolutely love it. Now that is one lucky pizza slice.
Stream: “Can’t Hold Us (Major Lazer Remix)” by Macklemore & Ryan Lewis (feat. Ray Dalton, Major Lazer, Swappi, and 1st Klase)23 May
Wanted Two Things: The longest title in our history & a killer beat to kick off this holiday weekend as I roll out. Mission Accomplished. This is the ‘Can’t Hold Us’ remix brought to you from Major Lazer. Here we go. #swat
If you don’t own ‘R.A.M.’ (out now), you are seriously missing out on some really amazing music. It won’t be our ‘Album of The Week’ because I don’t feature albums that have had a post in the past month. However, I’m not sold on that law yet. Daft Punk’s RAM is really incredible. But us U.S. listeners won’t get this Japanese bonus track entitled ‘Horizon’. Like an ocean breeze, it is calming and sweet in perfectly acoustic sort of way.
Leaves me saying one thing…
I’m showcasing this average remix, but really my mind is with Daft Punk’s ‘RAM’. Like a Don Draper. About halfway through the mind blowing iTunes album stream and my smile gets bigger with each track. Right now the standouts are 3, 5, & 6. Yes, made it to Pharrell’s first appearance — Lose Yourself to Dance. It’s so damn catchy. The first half of the record is very light jazzy & romantic..if Robots wrote a ’808 & Heartbreaks’. ”Giorgio by Moroder” is the most crazy out of this world cut I’ve heard so far as it includes classic Punk, new jazzy Punk, and dialogue from long time producer Giorgio Moroder. He tells the listener about his classic music making process that revolutionized the industry before I was born. The classic-tron soundtrack high speed Daft Punk sound hit me like a gust of wind. Almost made me believe I was riding in a light cycle.
I’m surprised by RAM. Very Jazzy. Light Jazz. Like riding to the airport shuttle at 6am in the morning while it’s raining kind of jazz. Quite outstanding. More thoughts later.
Today is gonna suck. Already succumb to it. If you need me, you can find me behind the dumpster. Trigger pulled. or how MIA puts it…High like papers, high like planes…*BANG BANG BANG BANG*
Bloggers got lucky this afternoon as ITunes started to stream the highly anticipated / long awaited new album from Daft Punk. The first word that comes to me is funky. Electronic funk.
