Tensnake feat. Syron - Mainline

Love absolutely any and everything having to do with this Miss lady. I called from the beginning that she would be rocking some serious collaborations.

Savoir Adore - Dreamers (Clubfeet Remix)

The beauty of this song makes me fall in love with sound all over again. I still will never be able to understand how certain sounds can evoke such an incredible emotion in a human. Words, mere words, are completely incapable of describing my feelings towards this track. Which I suppose isn't that weird, since according to Aldous Huxley, "music expresses the inexpressible."

Mid-Autumn Synth Magic Little Boots / Jack Beats / Jess Mills / Klever / Two Door Cinema Club / Gigamesh / Stay+ / Roses Gabor

Little Boots - Smalltown Boy (Bronski Beat Cover)

I've been a Little Boots fan ever since she started back in the day with "Meddle" and "Remedy." Man those songs are playing right now and it's actually transporting my brain back about 3 years to dancing on a couch in a random apartment in Atlanta. She's a babe who has the talent I wish I had, and she stuns us yet again with her creative take on Bronski Beat's "Smalltown Boy." Massive round of applause.

Jack Beats - Somebody to Love (feat. Jess Mills)

UHM. My jaw literally dropped when I heard this for the first time. FIRST OF ALL, I'm a huge Jess Mills fan, she kicks it so hard with all of her music, and after that track she did with Breakage, I just knew she was going to be one of my faves. Then Jack Beats drops this, and stuns us with collaborating with the lovely Jess Mills, and not only is it just an awesome collab, but the track itself is FIRE. Sexiest thing I've heard in a minute.

Klever - Higher

Remember BACK in the day, like 4 years ago when Klever remixed "Felicia" by my boys The Constellations? I totally had no idea he was still kicking until I stumbled across this little gem of a track. Vocals are a little David Guetta-ish, but I'll look past it because it's all pretty raw.

Two Door Cinema Club - Sun (Gigamesh Remix)

Haven't posted anything TDCC in a while. I think my last post from them was back in '10 with that Myd remix of "Come Back Home" (which is still so incredible.) Anyway, a Gigamesh remix, fabulous, and totally groovy edit. Speaking of Gigamesh, check his unbelievable remix to Moullinex's "Take My Pain Away." Smooth as all hell.

Stay+ - Crashed (feat. Queenie)

This is one of the more amazing songs I've heard this month. It just reaches deep into your gut and pulls out something extremely fierce. Those synths, I swear they could kill me if I let them.

Roses Gabor - Stars

I don't think this song can get more my taste, and hopefully your taste. Like I can't even tell how I want to approach this song, do I wanna dance to it, make a cover of it, cry to it, sleep to it, eat to it? I have no idea, but it's stunning. And the video is radder than anything. Off Girl's Music.


For the nerd in all of us.

...Anyone else picking up a severe Daft-y Punk-y "Aerodynamic"-y vibe?
Because it sounds just like it.

Meg Myers - Curbstomp

I don't know whether to laugh or to cry out of fear when I watch this video. 
Either way, it's creepy and magnificent, and I've fallen more in love with Meg because she wines and dines with stuffed animals. 

Disco Socks - Motivation

Do you guys remember me posting Disco Socks BACK in the day? Well he's back and yayyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyy I'm so excited. Get onto his SoundCloud and enjoy some free downloads and tasty treats. Actually I'm pretty picky about mixtapes but this Thrust Mixtape is super duper good.

Autumn Post 2 Beacon // Golden Filter // Andy Stott // Child Actor // That Work / Yung Skeeter // Queens of the Stoneage // MS MR

Beacon - Into the Night

Today, is a great day. Today Beacon dropped their very first EP For Now through the fantastic Ghostly International. (Home to the always ambiguous Matthew Dear..) and it is the most perfect little EP for this dreary weather. It's completely atmospheric and perfectly ambient, choice music for these dull days ahead of us.

The Golden Filter - Moonlight Fantasy

The Golden Filter will always and forever be one of my favorite dark and creepies. If poetry could be turned into rythmn and beats, The Golden Filter would be backing "Bereft" or "My November Guest." Such incredible musicians, and it only gets better when you open your window and see the bleak weather to match.

Andy Stott -Numb

Uhm, I don't know if I can properly articulate my feelings for this track. It is the deepest, most sesual, most intricate, soul grabbing song I have heard in quite some time. The vocals are what I imagine the Sirens sounded like to Odysseus, so soft and breathy, so girly and gorgeous. Then this heartbeat of a rythmn, pulsating my mind into a comotose state; I actually forget everything around me when this song is playing. This is brilliance.

Child Actor - If you Loved Me

Galactic and positively charming. These guys are so damn cool; she records her voice and any pure instrumental, then sends it to him and he layers it in synths and beats of all kinds. Ahh, the future of music.

That Work - Soul on Fire (Yung Skeeter Remix)

This track blew me away this morning. This song sets my damn soul on fire. What a pleasant collaboration of some nu disco and some tasty EDM (heavy on the disco) we have before us. Vocals are perfect, lyrics are even more perfect, beat is perfect, will not be able to get this song out of my head all week.

Queens of the Stoneage - Make it Wit Chu (Virgin Magnetic Material)

Queens of the Stoneage remind me of the song "Little Sister," major cow bell, SNL, and my emo highschool years trying to get my friends into the same music I was into. But while perusing through the interwebs these past couple days, I see this!? Yes please. It's a perfectly calming and slightly sexy remix that makes me want to stay in bed forever.

MS MR - Dark Doo Wop

Oh our friends MS MR. Yes, they put a bad taste in my mouth when I talked to them after their show, but I can't help but fall in love with their music. It's really unique, (hate that word) but they have such a specific sound, and her voice is so recognizable. Congratulations to their tour with Marina and the Diamonds, what an amazing success that turned out to be.

Urulu - 1991 | Exploited

Not only a solid jam, but this story defines my life. -_-

Autumn Post 1 Diplo // The xx // Lana Del Rey / Prison Penguins // Mayer Hawthorne / RAC // Disclosure // Joe Goddard

Diplo - About that Life feat. Jahan Lennon

This guy has got about as many haters as he does lovers, and I can never decide which team I'm on. So whether or not the guys a douche lord, I've been a fan of his music since back in the day. And this right here is something I never would have expected to come out of this mans hands. I'm obsessed. So rustic, so natural, so perfect for Fall.

The xx - Fiction (Synapson Remix)

First time I heard this song I was brought to tears. Not sure if it's because I was sick or because the music moved me or because one of the guys in Synapson is a total babe, but let's go with the middle just to enforce the intensity of this remix. I listened to The xx album as soon as it was available to ears, and there was something....missing in it. Talked with a friend about how they tried so hard to stay with the sound that got them out in the world, but they tried too hard to stay mellow. Spice it up a bit, it won't kill you. But this remix, holy shit. It's absolutely stunning. That little piano at 1:15 and on; swoon. Then those drums that rev up and just explode into a perfected mess of pure simpleness. Perfect, perfect, perfect.

Lana Del Rey - Blue Velvet (Prison Penguins Remix)

Such a babe. It was about time her songs / voice was transformed into something so groovy. Check the post I wrote about on The Top Sound about this song!

Mayer Hawthorne - No Strings (RAC Remix)

OK, Mayer Hawthorne, YES. RAC remix, even bigger YES. So funky, so fresh, so groovy, so absolutely perfect for driving around with the windows down and jammin all alone.

Disclosure - Latch feat. Sam Smith

I don't think I really need to write anything down to express how incredible this newer Disclosure track is. The vocals are probably the greatest things to bless my ears in just a bit. I just can't help dancing and singing my lungs out when this plays, I can't help it at all. Can. not. wait. til. their. show.

Disclosure - Control (Joe Goddard Remix)

Speaking of Disclosure, let's focus on one of their greatest remixes by my spirit animal; Joe Goddard. You know when you talk with someone about music, and you go through some of your favorites and send them just ONE song of your favorite...and then you get on a kick for forever. It's going on with me right now with Joe Goddard, I think I semi-introduced him to someone and now I'm going back and revisiting every track that made him so damn attractive. "Gabriel" will always be one of my favorite songs of all time, but even his remixes melt my soul. He's also showing up on some very awesomely random's like the music gods are telling me that I'm supposed to be listening to him at all times. He is without a doubt my favorite break off dj around. So brilliant.

Delilah - Love You So (Joe Goddard Remix)

I feel it's only appropriate that I share the best track on his Harvest Festival album from last year, considering it's now harvest time. It was the Harvest moon yesterday, it's October, Joe Goddard is a god among get it.

Joe Goddard - Go Bananas


(Taken from my SNSPost) Transport yourself back to Sofia Coppola’s Virgin Suicides for a minute; picture the four matching curtain homecoming dresses and the dreamlike thoughts of Trip Fontaine. If Lux Lisbon and sisters decided to start a band, I would more than expect the girls to sound something very similar to this. TEEN is the female dream pop masterpiece behind Here We Go Magic’s Kristina Lieberson who thought up the brilliant idea to gather her sisters and two close friends together to start making music. This Brooklyn based girl group has successfully created a stunning genre that incorporates multiple different layers, including a bass heavy psychedelic folk-rock undertow and beautifully basic vocals. Their album In Limbo was released last week through Carpark Records, and is the perfect album to transition you to overcast days and earlier nights.  They have released a video for the single “Electric” and the video is nothing short of just that. Simple cat eyes surrounded by psychedelic triangles and colorful chiffon jumpsuits are exactly what you would picture when listening to this song. The entire album sounds like a dream, with fun synths, low drums and tambourines. The tracks “Roses and Wine” and “Sleep is Noise” are the perfect songs to drink a glass of red with alone, and Kristina’s vocals in “Charlie” are sweet enough to bring you to tears. Sink deeply into their sound and you’ll feel as though you’ve been swept into some type of magical land.

100% obsessed with these girls, mostly because their noise fits in so well with the beginning of fall that's kinda depressing.

TEEN - Electric

And then my personal fave, Roses & Wine
