Justice Goes On N' On With New Remix EP [MUSIC]

Justice is gearing up for the new release of their remix EP titled 'On N' On' which includes remixes of tracks from 'Audio, Video, Disco'. Two stunning remixes are already up for grabs. Check em' out below.

First up is Brodinski's remix of EP title track, 'On N' On'. And although the name suggests something fancy, this is no Beethoven's 5th..It will get you moving for sure. Full of electronics and pounding drums, Brodinski proves he may just be the Mozart of the future.

Next up is the legendary Tiga remixing 'Canon.' And sadly he likes to talk through much of the song, but try to ignore it. A new vocal free version will be available soon. Hey, at least he doesnt go on and on and on and on....


Jusice - On n' On (Brodinski Remix)
Justice - Canon (Tiga Remix)


Justice - 'Hidden Track' (Audio, Video, Disco)

p.s....the album art is super sexy.


Chill Music For A Raw Mind [MUSIC]

Every Sunday, I like to make it a point to releax, unwind and get my head back together before beginning the week anew. To do that, often it helps to have a soundtrack--one that amplifies the liquidity the soul, allowing it to bathe in the audioverse. Doubt that's a real world, but oh well.

In preparation for the ridiculous weekend ahead of us, I thought it would be wise to zen out ahead of time considering this particular Sunday will likely bleed into Monday..and probably Tuesday [if you were smart enough to call out of work beforehand]. Compiled for your listening pleasure are some chill vibes from one of my favorite playlists: Sunday Night Chill.


Apparat - Cerro Largo
Boom Bip - Last Walk Around Mirror Lake (Boards of Canada Remix)
Chris Coco - Heavy Mellow (Jon Hopkins Remix)
Electric Skychurch - Silver Froth
Emancipator - Black Lake (Emancipator Remix)
FC Kahuna - Hayling (Max Cooper Remix)

No Sunday Night Chill playlist would be complete at only a handful of songs. The zen experience continues with tracks from Jimpster, Lusine & General Midi, and more. Ambient music is key when recharging the mind.

San Fran's artist and musician Tycho, and UK-based Youandewan also round out the mix for this week with some magnificant ambient beats.


Bluetech & Shulman - Midnight Bloom
General Midi -The Eastoner
Jimpster - Distant Light
Lusine - Operation Costs
Tycho - A Walk
Youandewan - Anjou (DJ Edit)

breathe in...breathe out...

Florence & The Machine Get Crazy With Dave Sitek [MUSIC]

Dave Sitek has just created another audio masterpiece for all those weekend dancehall-ravers out there. We start with the track 'No Light, No Light' off her new album 'Ceremonials' and from there we add skittering snyths and drums, some deep bass and then of course highlight Florence's epic vocal range with an echoing backdrop.

Don't forget to grab the bonus remix by The xx below.


Florence & The Machine - No Light, No Light (Dave Sitek Remix)
Florence & The Machine - You've Got The Love (The xx Remix)

a revelation in the light of day is better than none at all....


The XX Welcomes The Night With Synkro [MUSIC]

English indie rockers The xx are getting a seriously ambient makeover with the help of fellow Brit and dubsteb artist Synkro. The pairing couldn't have turned out better. The echoing synths, drum & bass elements compliment rather than conflict. There is certainly a liquid feel to this track, aptly titled 'Night Time'. As when you listen to it, you'll wish it was...Could this day be any longer??

You've no doubt heard other bands take a flattering stab at The xx, including The Antlers who covered the song 'VCR' in their own more elctronic sorta way.


The xx - Night Time (Synkro Remix)
The xx - VCR
The xx - Islands
The xx - Basic Space

...they sound like The Kills before they got all angry


Old Radiohead On The Radio [MUSIC]

This is for all you Radiohead fans out there. Just came across a live radio recording session from 1995 that features hits like High & Dry, and Bulletproof.

Thom and Johnny also discuss the [then] recent release of The Bends, and the meaning behind the album, its cover, and why everyone didnt show up. The interviews are scattered throughout, lending details into the band's creative process and journey to discovery. Check it out & enjoy!

1. High & Dry
2. Street Spirit [Fade Out]
3. Subterranean Homesick Alien
4. Bulletproof [I Wish I Was]

KCRW Morning Becomes Eclectic [2011]

We're back from Christmas and considering all the eggnog [or better yet, coquito] we've consumed we're lucky to be alive. As we round out the rest of year I thought I would bring you some live studio sessions from some excellent artists recently featured on Santa Monica's KCRW station. Today we serve up SoCal's lady rockers Dum Dum Girls, the boys from across the pond The Kooks, and Chicago's bluesy duo The Black Keys and last but not least, Fool's Gold.

Right click..save as. You know the drill.

You'd be a fool yourself to pass this up....


The Shins Reunite On The Morrow [MUSIC]

The Shins are returning return with a new album in March through singer James Mercer’s own record label: Aural Apothecary.

It’s been five long years since the band’s last release, 'Wincing the Night Away,' but in that time, Mercer released two works with Danger Mouse under the group name Broken Bells--definitely check them out! But now they have come back around for next year's 'Port of Morrow,' a collection of 10 songs recorded in Los Angeles and Portland over the course of the past year.

Peep the official tracklist below and the very bizarre Jacob Escobedo-designed album art. How many faces can you spot in this image? Hint: I'm not giving you any hints.

01. The Rifle’s Spiral
02. Simple Song
03. It’s Only Life
04. No Way Down

The Twelves Remix Everybody [MUSIC]

Brazilian DJ Duo, Joao Miguel & Luciano Oliveira--The Twelves, are not named for an obscure Mayan prophecy, rather the strange coincidence that has to do with their birthdays falling on the same day of the same year. But then again, it very well could be an ancient prediction that they would remix the #$&! out of nearly anything they could get their hands on. Cause they have done exactly that.

Featured on their remix album are 80's favorite A-Ha, along with Daft Punk, Groove Armada, Radiohead and Fleet Foxes. Also making an appearence are the Brits: Metric & Black Kids. The list goes on, but let's just skip straight to the music.


Radiohead - There There (The Twelves Remix)
Radiohead - Reckoner (The Twelves Remix)

The Virgins - Rich Girls (The Twelves Remix)
Fleet Foxes - White Winter Hymnal (The Twelves Remix)
Black Kids - I'm Not Going To Teach Your Boyfriend How To Dance With Me (The Twelves Remix)
Metric - Help I'm Alive (The Twelves Remix)

Arcade Fire Get Interactive In Your House [MUSIC/VIDEO]

Arcade Fire has a new interactive video for their indie dance track 'Sprawl II (Mountains Beyond Mountains)' and it is EPIC! Not only do your dance moves work the video in practically any way your mind can imagine, but it changes depending on how well you can work it..thus providing an endless amount of fun as you hone your skills for that New Year party you wont shut up about. Who needs the Black Eyed Peas Experience video game when you have the ethereal Regine Chassagne helping you out??  
Don't have a webcam to back you up? Lack of limbs? The video is still somewhat engaging if you at least have fingers. You can guide the video along, altering the visuals by clicking and dragging various parts of the screen.

More good news abounds! The video features an updated version of the song with an extended intro. Much better if you ask me. You can grab it below..

Head HERE to get your groove on.

Passion Pit & Two Door Cinema Club Have A Go At Amadeus [MUSIC]

Besides being from the awesome-sounding city of Bangor, Ireland [are you serious?] Two-Door Cinema Club is a great indie band to boot. Signing to a French label has given them the opportunity to shine not just with their own brand of catchy tunes, but take a stab at other Frenchies such as Phoenix. Also featured on this album is Alex Metric who has remixed pracitcally everything under the Sun from Gorillaz, Bloc Party, Depeche Mode and N.E.R.D. Fellow U.K. chaps Friendly Fires makes a stellar mix as well.

Their cuisine is questionable, but their musical talent is not...


Phoenix - 1901 (Obscuresounds Remix)
Phoenix - Fences (Friendly Fires Remix)
Phoenix - Lasso (Two Door Cinema Club Remix)
Phoenix - Lisztomania (Alex Metric Remix)
Phoenix - Armistice (YACHT Remix)

Best Coast + Wavves: California Christmas [MUSIC]

Best Coast & Wavves bring that surf-style rock to the holiday season with their California Christmas song, 'Got Something For You' which they also licensed to Guitar Center. Tis' the season for giving--and then receiving a nice paycheck. Although they'll probably end up spending it all at Guitar Center so who really wins in this situation?

And if you haven't already heard their collabo on the 7'' Vinyl 'Summer Is Forever' EP, check it out below. Go ahead and get your beach on'.


Best Coast + Wavves - Got Something For You


Best Coast + Wavves - When You Wake Up
Best Coast + Wavves - Hawaii
Best Coast + Wavves - King Of The Beach
Best Coast + Wavves - Stained Glass (Won't You Let Me Into Your Heart)
Best Coast + Wavves - Crazy For You


Norah Jones Is A Holiday Hallucination [VIDEO]


On a very special, and hallucinatory holiday episode of Anthony Bourdain: No Reservations, the globe-trotting sharp-tounged food afficianado explores his darkest Christmas ever. And its all in his mind. After getting kicked out by his wife, he descends upon New York City for a sad adventure to fill both his stomach and his time before returning back to reality.

Making a stellar cameo in this 'nightmare' is Norah Jones, who sings sweetly in the lounge of the Ace Hotel, swooning the sad Bourdain with her rendition of 'Silent Night.' I'm usually not one for Christmas songs, but in this case I am very much hoping for a full version soon as this was painfully beautiful. Sporting a sexy new do, and exchanging her piano for a guitar, she lulls Bourdain to sleep once more.

Check out the video HERE:

And listen to her work with Jack White and Daniel Luppi on Dangermouse's album 'Rome'.

The Antlers Rock Out For The Widows [MUSIC]


'If I ever get back home...' I'm gonna be listening to the gorgeous falsetto vocals of Peter Silberman and The Antlers on loop. There seems to be a trend these days with studio-made acoustic sessions, but when a band like this can sound just as amazing in a tiny room as they do in front of an arena, who's really going to complain?? You might not have gotten to see it, but at least you can still hear it. Right? ...Right.

Well fresh off-the-mixer is a small set of new renditions from this years' acclaimed 'Burst Apart'. Have a peak with your earballs and peep the beautifulness.

Feist: 'How Come You Never Go There? (Beck Remix)


Feist first posed the question 'How Come You Never Go There?' via a song on her latest album, 'Metals'. Well, somone finally went ahead and went there. And that person is the wacky and alternative music personality Beck [not Glenn Beck although he's plenty wacky himself]. The mix is great and has a more danceable feel to it. Which begs question, what took him so long? The song is now fully equipped with deep bass, pitch-distorted vocals and a more electronic feel.

Have a listen:

How Come You Never Go There (Beck Remix) by Feist

Kings Of Leon Get A 9-Min Work-Out [MUSIC]


Most rock songs don't dare exceed a solid 4 minutes unless they're magical journeys by Led Zeppelin or consistently trippy Pink Floyd. But they've earned it. It's been a rough year for Kings Of Leon however. With lead singer Nathan Followill blowing out his voice in August at a show in Dallas and thus forcing the band to cancel their entire tour, perhaps they could use some help in extending their presence as the year draws to a close.

To do that, The Kings have enlisted the help of Royksopp to remix their track 'The Immortals.' Not from the movie, but from their latest LP, 'Come Around Sundown'. So what do you get when you combine Norwegian dance maestros and southern rock n' roll? You get this 9-minute dance hall jam:

Kings of Leon - The Immortals (Röyksopp Remix) by ryxp


Pretty Lights Vs. Radiohead Vs. Nirvana Vs. NIN = We All Win [MUSIC]


Electro-Mad-Scientist Derek Vincent Smith [Pretty Lights], enjoys warping minds with retro riffs outfitted with modern beats. His remix album splices genres to create his signature body-movers. Working with artists like Notorious B.I.G. [not literally, although that would be something] to Steve Miller as well as Radiohead [Everything In Its Right Place] Nine Inch Nails [Closer] and Nirvana [All Apologies] we end up with some seriously awesome mash-ups.

Not one to stick to the boring, tried-and-true method of mere music combos, he adds his own unique beats, drums and bass to make a more authentic hybrid. And it works. Compiled for your enjoyment and for those seeking their own remix inspiration, are some previously unreleased tracks from Smith. As a bonus, have a listen to a Radiohead '15 Step' mash-up with Dave Brubek's classic 'Take Five' jazz hit courtesy of Overdub.


Pretty Lights - Empire State Of Mind (Jay-Z & B.I.G. Remix)
Pretty Lights - Fly Like An Eagle (Steve Miller Band Remix)
Pretty Lights - Time (Pink Floyd Remix)


Pretty Lights - Radiohead vs Nirvana vs NIN (Remix)


Overdub - Five Step (Radiohead vs. Dave Brubeck)
