YOUR WEEKEND PARTY SONG - Foo Fighters - “Rope (Deadmau5 Remix)”
Fact: I’m not a Deadmau5 fan.
Fact: I’m a huge Foo Fighters fan and have been since a young age. Dave Grohl is literally my hero in almost every sense of the word.
Deadmau5 released this remix of the new Foo Fighters single today.
It’s a banger through and through. I don’t know exactly why, but I would love to see a Reservoir Dogs sequence set to this song. It’s a contrast from the bright, sunny weekend ahead, but it’s sure to blow some doors off once the night rolls in.
Can I get a “White Limo” remix, anyone?
The new sure-to-be-brilliant Foo Fighters album Wasting Light is out April 12th. They recorded it in Grohl’s garage on analog tape with Butch Vig, producer of Nirvana’s Nevermind, at the helm.
YOUR WEEKEND PARTY SONG (3/11/11) - Gold Fields "Treehouse"
YOU WILL LOVE THIS SONG. From the sparse opening percussion to the shimmery synths to the tight rhythm section to the crystal clear vocals, you will be hooked. It’s everything you would want in a pop song with commendable musicianship.
This band has existed for about six months, and this is what they have given us. I am anxiously awaiting this band’s next musical moves. Australia’s music scene has provided us with some brilliant gems in the last year or so, including The Temper Trap’s Conditions and Cut Copy’s Zonoscope. I need to book a trip there so I can just DANCE.
YOUR WEEKEND PARTY...MIXTAPE! (3/4/11) Remix Artist Collective 'Vol 2.'
RAC is at it again, taking already superb songs and transforming them into brilliant opuses. The live instrumentation, infectious basslines, and driving beats characterize the three-man DJ team. Their new mixtape Vol. 2 is RAC at their very best. The opener, a take on Delorean’s fantastic “Stay Close” (one of my favorite tracks from 2010), allow you to dive headfirst and be immersed in a sea of aural euphoria. It hooks you in for the rest of the ride, which keeps riding high while meandering through peaks and valleys of BPMs.
Download this now and press repeat for a weekend of unadulterated fun.
