Midnight Juggernauts – Into the Galaxy (Chateau Marmont Remix)

If you ask me the psychedelic, art and glam rock movements contributed to many aspects of music that people don’t really recognize. Musically these guys pushed and explored without boundaries which pissed off a lot of people but ultimately led to some amazing discoveries. However, I think the my favorite contribution from these movements was how they helped change the perspective of what was considered “acceptable” subject matter for a song. Traditionally, lyrical themes were pretty much about love, poverty and partying. The Psychedelic rock movements introduced songs with philosophical themes, about literature, science fiction, futurism to name a few. I don’t really have a preference for these types of songs mainly because I don’t believe in strict preference but I think anything that helps expand forms of expression is a good thing. That said, here’s another gem from the Ever Better compilation I talked about a few weeks ago. This songs intergalactic theme is yet another metaphor for leaving the pity problems for the higher understanding, the galaxy, enjoy.

The Galvatrons – When We Were Kids (Bag Raiders Remix)

So I’ve been keeping on eye on The Galvatrons after seeing this awesome/extremely silly album trailer on their Myspace. The music is cool, the band describes it as interstellar sci-opera and all the usual space age adjectives. Anyways, the real reason for this post is to talk about Bag Raiders, one of my favorite dance remixers/producers.  They’ve released two EP’s since 2007 – Turbo Love et Fun Punch but their most notable work has come in the form of infectious, dance floor rocking remixes. We posted their remix of Cut Copy’s hit Far Away a few months back and then again two weeks ago because well, it’s that good. The production quality on the remixes meets all expectations. The chords progressions are always interesting and exiting, the electro house style drums always sound relevant and tastefully mixed in. If your looking for simple dance music with all the fancy tricks and sound quality this production group has your back. With that said, here are some of our favorite Bag Raiders productions, check out When We Were Kids, sick. I have more but got lazy so these will do for now, enjoy.

Midnight Juggernauts – Shadows/Road to Recovery

Damn Aussies know what their doing when it comes to the electro/synth-pop thing. Been meaning to blog about these guys for some time but never got around to it. I saw them open up for Justice back in ‘07 when the whole indie rock to dance transformation was starting to take flight and they certainly put on a show. Here are my two fav songs, Shadows & the Daft Punk inspired Road to Recovery, both from their full length LP Dystopia. Enjoy.
