Yes yes, only 2 days since the last one, but omg there is just too much love in the world to stop now.
Channel Live - Mad Izm (Cheapshot Remix): Ahhh the KRS-One styleeeeeeeeeeeee. And the chimes and french horns. Yes.
Dilo - An Iceberg And A Caribou (Sebastian Cohen Remix): Uplifting techy meandering form the 2009 Waheira release. So much stuff going on in this one.
DJ Shadow - I've Been Trying (Various I'm Done Trying Mix): This ressurects that dark turn-of-century Ninja Tunes styles that made everyone's knees a bit wobbly. From the new album I Gotta Rokk, this is the saviour of it all.
Dominant Legs - Where We Trip The Light: At first jangles you might think it is Vampire Weekend, BUT NO! You have made a terrible mistake. From the album Invitation.
Ellie Goulding - The Writer (Live Acoustic Version): I love this song, it was a track that really grew on me from her full length. This one comes from the single of the same name, and any Tori Fan knows to mine the singles.
Gabriel Prokofiev - String Quartet No. 2 (Vex'd Remix): Screw renditions of electronic tracks by classical musicians, we need more remixes of classical music by electronic musicians.
Guanaco ± - Lepidoptera: From the new album Ardea Cinerea, gorgeous lush guitar work.
How To Dress Well - Suicide Dream 2 (Elite Gymnastics Baptism): From "Just Once", Elite Gymnastics give us another taste of chillwave grooove.
Katie Kim - 500 Miles (The Pretenders cover): Who'd have thought this song would sound so sensitive, so... NOT STALKERISH.
Lems - Footsteps: Some fancy-pants piano breakbeats for breakfast.
Parenthetical Girls - Sympathy For Spastics: They may not be for everyone's tastes, but oh I've taking a liking to the string of Privilege EPs. Now we have "Privilege, Pt. IV: Sympathy For Spastics" and it's just as wonderful. Recommended for anyone who likes their rock n roll done Cabaret style.
Rookie - Azure: More smooth ninjabreak yumminess.
Sigur Rós - Svefn-g-englar (live): Inni is a double-live collection. Yup, this is the moneyshot. If live albums are your thing, you can't really go wrong with the epicness of Sigur Rós. And if Sigur Rós are your thing, you can't really go wrong with this live album.
Summer Camp - Ghost Train
Summer Camp - I Want You: Total cutesiepop with a dark evil edge.
Tropics - Mouves (Botany Remix): The stutterbeat reminds me of Radiohead's latest album. Too bad those boys never got this sparkley.
