A double-update week! Please excuse me but there was just a backlog of awesome to get to.
AFX - Quex-RD
Autechre - Skin Up You're Already Dead: Who would expect a split EP between these 2 appearning in 2011? And it being AWESOME? Fabulous.
Austra - Lose It (Young Galaxy Remix): I've said it before and I'll say it again, I really think Young Galaxy should have got the Polaris shortlist over Austra. Blah. Anyways, kiss kiss and makeup, because you sound oh so beautiful together.
Brown Shoe - Late Nights: From The Gift Horse, just let it build and get all good and epicy at the end.
Chromeo - When The Night Falls (Hercules And Love Affair Remix): Hercules & Love Affair have had some misses, but they have some top-notch production funk going on here, and I'm not even a Chromeo fan.
Cults & Superhuman Happiness - Um Canto de Afoxé para o Bloco d'Ilê: Cute little collab from Red Hot + Rio 2. Totally infectious. You just try and frown, Mr. Grumpsalot.
Drop Life - Moon Shine: Beatsmiths are a dime-a-dozen in this laptop studio word, but I keep digging for the gems like this track.
Girls - Vomit: New Girls! I wasn't a huge fan of the earlier stuff, but it seems like someone had a dark year. Like more morose Dinosaur Jr.
Kathryn Calder - Who Are You: More fantastic pop, from the new album Bright And Vivid.
Magic Arm - Outdoor Games: Sweet and lulling pop, from 2009's Make Lists Do Something.
Mr. Muthafuckin' eXquire - Huzzah! (Remix FT Despot, Das Racist, Danny Brown & El-P): Oh this is just so goofy. Hilarious and perfect.
Ohbijou - Anser
Ohbijou - Sligo: New album Metal Meets is out now and it's as sweet and beautiful as you expected. Recommended!
RxRy - Aertigo Lapsees: Off the Aertgo Lapsees single that apparently came out last year, but I just snagged it now. RxRy is an electronic music producer in fine form. Serve with the AFX/Autechre singles above....
St. Vincent - Surgeon: I'm the first to admit I haven't loved anything she's done quite as much as her brilliant debut album, but I'm enjoying this new single from Strange Mercy, out now.
Star Slinger - Dutchie Courage: And we close off with a sunshine bouncey bit of awesomeness, doing a fairly straight-ahead all-guns-bounce flip of the classic samples.
