Mix – tape – ol – o – gy: New remixes and some covers you’ve (hopefully) never heard before.
Remixes on my mind
MGMT – Kids (Pet Shop Boys Synthpop Remix): Blows Soulwax’s remix out of the water. Seriously.
SebastiAn – Momy (Erol Alkan’s Simple, Yet Effective Edit): Simple, Yet Effective indeed.
Gorillaz – Dirty Harry (Disco Villains Remix): I haven’t some some sweet DV tracks in a while.
Late Of The Pier – Bathroom Gurgle (Tronik Youth Remix): Watch out for these guys next year.
DJ Mehdi – Pocket Piano (Chewy Chocolate Cookies Remix): I don’t show much love to Dh Mehdi or Chew Choco Cookies much. Hopefully this makes up for it a little.
Britney Spears – Circus (Junior Vasquez Remix Edit): I’ve decided that “Circus” is one of the best singles of 2008, oh and this remix isn’t bad either.
Gang Gang Dance – House Jam (Hot Chip Remix): I love Hot Chip and Gang Gang Dance is quickly getting on my good side. Match made in heaven.
And some covers…
Covers on my mind
Mark Ronson & Daniel Merriweather – Wonderful Christmas Time (Paul McCartney Cover): These two produce nothing but magic together.
Calico Horse – Idioteque (Radiohead Cover): It’s always a tough call when a band covers Radiohead. I guess all I can say is that this ain’t no Sia doing “Paranoid Android”
We Are Scientists – Hoppipolla (Sigur Ros Cover): WONDERFUL!
This Is Ivy League – Crown of Love (Arcade Fire Cover): An oldie (sort of), but a goodie (absolutely!)
Kate Nash – Hang Me Out To Dry (Cold War Kids Cover): As far as badgirl Brits covering awesome songs goes, Kate Nash is all over it. Lily-Allen-covering-Womanizer who?
Local Natives – Warning Sign (Talking Heads Cover): Watch out for these guys next year. Watch out for this cover now.
