Aidan Baker - Already Drowning with Clara Engel: With Already Drowning, Aidan Baker gets in to some late night simmering that brings me in to a Elizabeth Anka Vajagic kind of place. Surprising, Baker's world manages to have even more love. A really interesting turn for this oft-producing artist.
Animal Collective - New Town Burnout (Shabazz Palaces Remix): Shabazz all over this one with some great halloween groove shit, from Monkey Been To Burn Town.
Arcade Fire - Brazil: Brazil is one of those songs, like Girl From Ipanema, that I ALWAYS want to hear every single cover of since it's such a timeless classic. From the old release Cold Wind.
Gabriel & Castellon - Hum: bo bo bo bo bo bo boom boom boom boom
Grizzly Bear - Sleeping Ute (Nicolas Jaar Remix): Because hey, we all know that Grizzly Bear needed MORE echo on it.
Hectic - Rooftop NYE VIP: And sometimes we just need some VIP bass.
Method Man x Heyoka - Release Yo Camanche (Stylust Beats mash): These 2 lovebirds were made for each other.
Nathan Hanson & Brian Roessler - La Lune Est Morte: A little slice of beauty off of Selenographia.
Nick Cave And The Bad Seeds - Mermaids: is pretty epic, and still growing eon me, so no final verdict yet. Every once in a while you just give up and say FINE, NICK CAVE, TELL US ABOUT YOUR PENIS AGAIN.
Phoenix - The Real Thing: Don't get me wrong, this track is pretty great, but it's sounding a little bit more ummm… generic? Then the other Phoenix stuff. New album is Bankrupt! and I will still certainly check it out.
Sister Nancy - Bam Bam (Zebo's We Nuh Digital Remix): The classic gets flipped up again!
Sleeping At Last - Snow: Just delicate and touching and perfect.
Super Fuzzy - Link In Love: Tragically short, I love the 8-bit romance.
The Evens - King of Kings
The Evens - Wanted Criminals: Ian Mackeye teams up with his wife for The Odds and together gives us an amazing album that will satisfying both Fugazi fans and fans of husband/wife duos. Recommended!
UZ & CRNKN - Booty 2 The Ground (TWRK REMIX): This is what bass is all about.
Vampire Weekend - Step: An admirably non-obnoxious nhew single from the brand new VW album!
Winny Puhh - Meiecundimees üks Korsakov läks eile Lätti: It's Estonia vs the world at Eurovision, and we all won.
