And rump shaking. Not even sure I like the song, but enjoy!
A slew of remixes for your ear balls:
DJ Sega has been working his ass off round the clock in order to bring you this goodness. Mad Decent had a nice write up about him today and so did Actual Records. Check him, Ruxbin, SixTen & Co. at their monthly at the Dive. Here are some of his latest:
Sick remix of Kanye's 'Runaway', which also shows up on the Sixer Series below
So....not sure where to start with this.
Thanks to Audio Perv for the video
Ariel Pink & Co had their network TV debut on Jimmy Fallon last night (in the battle with Conan for the quest to be more indie)and despite his recent shitty performances, this wasn't horrible. But it wasn't "Oh man, I'm gonna blow up now that I'm on NBC" good. I could barely get through that last sentence without laughing, NBC stinks on ice. Maybe its that they look like a sequence version of The Turtles or the fact that their bassist looks like a real live black haired version of Janice the muppet from the Electric Mayhem band or that Ariel Pink stole my Nana's glasses and looked bored as hell.
|I heard they didn't even write they're own songs.|
Latest of my endeavors of the numerous artists that record at the Daytrotter barns. Best thing ever for listening to new bands, free 128k recordings given out daily of bands you love and bands you've never heard of.
|MGMT - Not just for kids anymore|
A new track and some from Congratulations which I have grown ever so fond of in the past year. Everyone wanted them to be what Yeasayer is now, but they are still writing great songs, just not the dance rock the masses want. Dig it.
MGMT - Daytrotter Session
I have an aversion to excellent/well constructed electronic music and Baths is where the heart is right now. Most of these tracks can only be heard live, so go get em!
Baths - Daytrotter Session
Lastly, I give you current Philadelphia resident RJD2's mix made at the Daytrotter studios. They've been seriously expanding their horizons, having rappers, electronic artists, etc with radtastic results. My buddy also let me know that RJD2 just gave a lecture on making multi-layered tracks at Drexel. Random late info, but awesome nonetheless. DL this nowish:
RJD2 - Daytrotter Session
Not enough for ya? Here's some more free remixes of "The Glow" by RJD2 from his website:
As swell as all this snow/sleet is and how awesome it makes getting around the city, I cannot effing wait to enjoy loud music in the summer. Nothing better. These songs have helped me get by:
Jillionaire got hit up by Malibu Rum and put out a sweet mixtape & gave out a free track, thanks Mad Decent - GET READY TO BOOM
How do you not trust the man who wears that suit? Catchy latin music with a sick hook, check out Coati Mundi - No More Blues
Found this El Guincho-esque gem on yvynyl about kids I think? Maybe it's Chile's answer to Arcade Fire's "The Suburbs"...I could give two craps if I could translate a single word they were singing about. The riff is stupendous:
Denver - Los Adolescences
Lastly, I found this hazy dream fest over on Altered Zones, Pitchfork's attempt to tap into some of the best music blogs from around the world. Band's name is Troppical Paradise, nuff said:
Troppical Paradise - Sunshine Daze (New Side of Love)
Some random things I ran across today that I think are pretty sweet. Have a backlog of links, new songs, etc that I'm gonna get out later this week as well. Let's do the damned thing:
NEW TRACKS FROM PEOPLE YOU'VE HEARD OF
Black Keys played SNL over the weekend and were impressive. Dan looks creepy without a beard. Everyone will be even more so all over them this year, and this cements it. Enjoy both (via SKOA):

Felt like sharing again so I turned on the ol' internets. So this will probably be like the the first two weeks of the year at any gym across the country, and I will get bored or find something else to occupy my time again. But I discovered how to properly use Google Reader and RSS feeds in general and it is making perusing a stupid amount of music blogs, sites, etc. much more digestible. So let's see what I found, shall we? Let's start with some hip hop:
