Danny Brown x Purity Ring

September 30, 2013

For all of those out there who long ago figured out Canadian future pop duo Purity Ring’s electronic production would work wonders soundtracking hip hop, today’s your day. Detroit hip hop artist Danny Brown dropped his third studio album Old, and it features some sweet collaborations, including 25 Bucks with Purity Ring! The haunting, dark beats are deliciously sinister and easily take the limelight in my books. Danny Brown’s flow is dope too, but I’m first and foremost a Purity Ring fan. This isn’t the first time the two have worked together on a track. Close to a year ago, Purity Ring remixed their own stunning tune Belispeak. The remix featured Danny Brown. I suppose the seeds of 25 Bucks may have been sowed then. Revisit Belispeak II below 25 Bucks.

OFFICIAL VID: Jagwar Ma – Come Save Me

September 30, 2013

I have another exciting schedule of shows to go to the next 7-8 days. I’m looking forward to all of them, including Thursday night’s sold out show headlined by Jagwar Ma! The Australian trio’s debut album Howlin’ has been in strong rotation in my CD changer for the past few months. Their blend of impressive, unique electronic psych rock has been very addictive. One of the best tracks off Howlin’ is the hypnotic Come Save Me. Jagwar Ma released an equally hypnotic video for the dazzling, dizzying tune today. The 5 plus minute long track only gets better as it progresses, with the most genius moments coming in within the last two minutes. This track is so much fun to blast at high volume while driving. Trust me.

The Kite String Tangle

September 28, 2013

I just stumbled upon a new electronic alternative artist from Australia named The Kite String Tangle via his great cover of Lorde’s Tennis Court. It’s a delightful cover. His vocals remind me very much of Bastille. It’s a softened, gorgeous rendition, though I do kind of miss Lorde’s “bite”. I look forward to hearing the original tonight soon. Of course, a new artist on my radar means I delve deeper into any available music. I ended up listening to The Kite String Tangle’s single Given Any Chance which came out a couple months ago, and it’s quite a delicate, beautiful ethereal pop gem. Listen below the Lorde cover!

UK producer Paul Woolford offered up this sick remix of Disclosure’s Help Me Lose My Mind, which features London Grammar. The original is the excellent closing track on Disclosure’s highly rated debut album Settle. Guess who I get to see tonight? Other than Lorde, Until the Ribbon Breaks, and maybe even Jaymes Young, I get to see LONDON GRAMMAR! I’m doing a happy dance! Can you tell? London Grammar’s collaboration with Disclosure was easily one of my favorites on Disclosure’s album Settle, along with several others (specifically White Noise featuring AlunaGeorge and a few others). Woolford’s version highlights the addictive piano riff and gives the track an even more summery gloss.
