Punk rockers The So So Glos just dropped a new video, and it’s a super fly one, too. It features a crew of breakdancers on a NYC subway train. The energy and spirit in the video is a fine match for the Brooklyn band’s song, Dancing Industry, which comes from their new album Kamikaze. Dancing Industry is a burst of scuzzy vibrant garage rock, the perfect song to rev us up for a splendid weekend ahead. The So So Glos album Kamikaze is out now on Votiv.

Not only have The Chainsmokers been on fire with their dominating originals of late, but those hits have also inspired some of the past months’ best remixes. Their rousing ode to the Big Apple, NYC, goes massively majestic on an intensive remix by Los Angeles based producer JayKode. His regal rendition of NYC builds slowly, swelling with potent emotion before bursting into an outbreak of future bass and electro catharsis. Download the remix for free, here.

Big time, hotly buzzing electronic act The Chainsmokers hit up fast rising Atlanta duo Halogen for an official remix of their beautiful ode to the Big Apple, NYC. Halogen’s remix is rife with piano driven, melodic energy, eventually buildling up to a splendorous future house explosion of choppy beats and future funk edge. It’s a concoction of ecstasy that Halogen themselves like to dub “Future Prog”. Download the vivacious remix for free, here.

New Local Natives from NYC

November 30, 2012

Local Natives’ new single Breakers has been garnering a lot of love. I can’t wait for their sophomore album early next year. The other night, the fellas performed at the Bowery Ballroom. Of course, they debuted several more of their lush chamber pop/psych rock tunes live. Here’s some semi-decent fan footage of the new songs. 

And just for heck of it, here’s the official video for lead single Breakers again. Such good stuff…

Mountain Goats waterfront in NYC

September 18, 2012

This feels like it’s straight from some distant past, especially if you look away from the HQ pitchfork video. The Mountain Goats’ John Darnielle played a wonderful, solo acoustic version of Harlem Roulette, a cut off their upcoming October album Transcendental Youth. He gives a little description about the origination of the track in the beginning. It’s a lovely folk rock, almost Americana track.

OFFICIAL VID: Hooray For Earth – Realize It’s Not The Sun

January 11, 2012

Hooray For Earth’s Realize It’s Not The Sun is off their 2011 debut album True Love. They’ve come up with an official video for the single utilizing old NYC traffic feeds. It’s rather random, but interesting. I introduced the New York band a couple months ago with the title track off their album True Love, which was a great specimen of synthy noise electro rock. Realize It’s Not The Sun is a quieter one, utilizing various interesting sounds including a more chorale like, solemn background placed in juxtaposition with dreamy, melodic vocals. It works very well!
