Black Friday Sentimental

I’ll own up to it. Last night after a 10:00 pm $3 showing of Elysium (which I unsurprisingly, enjoyed a great deal) I decided to experience the frenzy since Urban Outfitters had emailed me THREE TIMES to remind me that they (or it was?) were opening at midnight. One shop full of expensive hipster sale clothes at half off was all I could take. Early during the day I spent some time putting together an alternative/EDM-flavored Thanksgivin’ Spotify mix in honor of the occasion. I ended up listening to it last night as I stood in line (only about 12 minutes btw). Because like Julian Casablancas, I’ll try anything once.

Remix Wednesday #2

Straight from Wild Cub via Twin Shadow comes this interesting (and free!) reworking of the so-catchy-you-can’t-escape “Thunder Clatter.” Listening below is encouraged but be warned, you’ll probably join the email list to permanently treasure the actual .mp3 file.

Wild Cub’s debut album Youth is getting a wide release on 1/21 on Mom+Pop Records. I miss listening to it on Spotify…before/in the middle of all the hype.

Wild Cub, OMAM, and more

This might be a little controversial, but when are people gonna realize that Pitbull basically sucks?

Here are some tracks for your Tuesday afternoon commute that are better than average. Because, really, there’s no time to waste at this moment in human history. This is our time. This is your moment!

And yes just because I can, I am throwing a little self-promo in today. Check out tracks from Wild Cub, Of Monsters and Men, and Color Bears.

Lost in Transit – Christmas EP

It’s that time of year friends, so cuddle up with loved ones by the fire and chill out to this Christmas EP by Lost in Transit. These songs are a tough find outside of the Myspace embedded player but you can buy the band’s debut ep on iTunes.
