Electric Guest – The Bait (Shlohmo Remix)

There’s a certain quality to Shlohmo’s music that seems to combat all the hype I’ve been hearing lately about this young man. We all know the formula at this point: a younger artist with an original sound, one who pushes boundaries and isn’t afraid to create a sound not heard before. Every time I read about […]

Kate Boy – In Your Eyes

There are two things I’d like to address with this song in mind. First, there’s nothing like a great build-up. There’s absolutely nothing like it. Argue with me, I dare ya. How is it that music is able to do this and make us so happy, but any other sort of build-up, be it angry, […]

The Knife – A Tooth For An Eye

A Tooth For An Eye is supposed to be the first track off their super anticipated upcoming album, Shaking The Habitual. I had a chance to watch the video before listening to the song, and I was floored by the simplicity in its concept and, as one might expect, sheer originality. The video brings attention to what we […]

Young Galaxy – Cover Your Tracks

I’m constantly faced with the question of what my favorite track of all time is. Sometimes the question is framed differently, perhaps pertaining to what my favorite electronica track is, or new indie artist. The question is often met with uncertainty and fear on my behalf, because there are so many that I don’t want […]

The Knife – You Make Me Like Charity (Cry Wolf Remix)

So I don’t know if this song will make you like charity, but it’s definitely been making me get all hyped about going outside and strutting to this. One of the great things about a band like The Knife is that they turn seemingly bizarre combinations of sounds into something refreshing. While the Swedish duo […]

The Knife – We Share Our Mother’s Health (Ratatat Remix)

Count on Ratatat to make anything dirty, gritty and flat out bumpin. The Virginia bounce inspired production style is an instant addiction and with my Skidmore reunion on the horizon I’ve felt the need to represent for my alma mater. Point out the bounce!” A lot of people say hip hop is dead but all you have to […]
