Kendrick Lamar Remixes
No matter what else happens in 2015, Kendrick Lamar‘s latest album, “To Pimp A Butterfly“, has cemented its place on my end-of-year top 10 list.
It’s an record so weighty and complex in its ambition and execution that it makes most other albums released this year look D-League in comparison.
That’s on one level.
On another level, it’s also just a really fun album to …

Friday Free For All: Tame Impala and Nuve

Tame Impala – “Let It Happen”
It seems hard to believe, but it’s been nearly three years since Tame Impala’s last studio album — “Lonerism” — came out.
Not that Kevin Parker has been sitting idly by in that time; between touring (and releasing the excellent Live Versions album last year (“Be Above It”  from that album is EPIC!), producing and collaborating on releases by Melody’s …

Dolly Parton – “Jolene” (Todd Terje Remix)
Can Todd Terje do any wrong?
That’s rhetorical question because we all know the answer is NO!!!
The big Norwegian has been quiet on the edit front in the last couple of years, but came back recently with a new edit of Dolly Parton’s classic, “Jolene”.

Todd Terje gives the country diva a balearic disco rubdown on the edit. Nothing too …

Friday Free For All: Aphex Twin/Tom Waits Mashup + Disclosure Remix

Eskmo – “Aphex Waits”
On the surface, Tom Waits and Aphex Twin would seem to very little in common.
While Waits is a gravelly voiced singer-songwriter whose style might best be described as leftfield interpretations of pre-war jazz and blues, Aphex Twin trades in futuristic experiments in electronics.
LA-based producer, Eskmo, manages to meld the seemingly disparate worlds together in a mash-up that defies expectations and manages …

Museum of Love + New Build Remixes
Museum of Love’s eponymous debut album was one of my favorite albums of 2014.
Next Friday, they will make their LA debut at the Regent Theater as part of a co-headlining tour with New Build (a group lead by Hot Chip members Al Doyle and Felix Martin). If I didn’t have a radio shift that night, I’d totally be …

Misun – Superstitions
It’s no secret that Misun is one of my favorite bands.
The LA-via-DC group first caught my attention through their consistently great stream of free releases on Soundcloud, each one wildly different from the last, but always super catchy.
This week they released their first full length, “Superstitions“.
It finds Misun gliding between rock, pop, and electronic sounds. Powerhouse lead singer (and group namesake) Misun …

Dilla’s horn-heavy beat originally appeared on his 2005 album “Donuts” as “Gobstopper”.
