Covers & Remixes

Unless you live under a rock, you are aware of the new Beastie Boys album that is about to drop.  They've got a new video for the lead single, with cameos galore.  They streamed the whole album at MSG after it leaked the other day.  Found this remix of Make Some Noise by Passion Pit on both Stereogum & Pretty Much Amazing.  And now you can haz:

This next on is a cover by Teen Daze, who we've covered before, of Japandroids awesome sauce song Wet Hair (via I Hope Your Ears Bleed).  Has a great 8-bit feel to it, and in this guy's opinion is a excellent take on the song.  Teen Daze should be on your radar. Let me help you:

Just saw Cut Copy & Holy Ghost! at the Troc the other week, so this remix seems appropriate.  (Quick footnote, if you are not already listening to the Holy Ghost! album and enjoy 80's dance music, I urge you to drop whatever it is you are doing and get said music in your life stat.  They are for serious.)  Here is Detroit DJ Carl Craig's take on Cut Copy's Need You Now (via A Heart is A Spade), one of the better tracks on a very good album put out by Cut Copy earlier this year.

Last one is another cover of a band I got to witness in person last night at the First Unitarian Church, Tame Impala.  Here is sample master Mark Ronson take on their song.  You can download it for free over at Some Kind of Awesome.
