Reckoner- Radiohead (ethikly refuckulated)


I don’t care if this person doesn’t want me to share this. I’m going to anyways…

The other day, my friend Nick sent  me this song as a link through Soundcloud. We have this strange routine where we sometimes talk to each other and sometimes don’t. For some strange reason, when we start our conversations, it always begins with a link to an amazing song- new or old. I don’t know how this routine started, but it’s pretty interesting since we did originally connect based on our similar taste in music. Maybe now it’s the only thing left that we have in common? I don’t know.

Despite this strange friendship/relationship/acquaintanceship we have, I’ve always admired the music he creates himself. It really is all in the details when it comes to this one. Whether you like Radiohead or not, this song is definitely worth a listen. It’s a really cool take on the original and it sort of reminds me of being in a dream. Maybe that’s just me though. If you like it, apparently it’s still downloadable…  so you should get it.

Daft Punk’s New Single Preview

If you were ever a Daft Punk fan or still consider yourself to be one, this will surely make you smile. Coachella may not be as well known for releasing big stuff the way SxSW is, but this news was definitely up there for some. We heard rumours last year that Daft Punk would be releasing a new album, and finally at Coachella we’re getting a sample of what’s to come. In the video you can hear their new track “Get Lucky” Ft. Pharrell & Nile Rodgers, and see all of the collaboration for their new album Random Access Memories. Some collaborations include Panda Bear, Julian Casablancas, Todd Edwards and DJ Falcon, and more. The single drops April 15th 2013, which hopefully means we’ll be getting more, if not the full album by summer time. This preview warmed my heart and I am so looking forward to this!

“Your Love”- Totally Enormous Extinct Dinosaurs

Anytime I play a song from this guy around people, I always get asked “Who is this?!” I usually reply and say “TEED” (because in my mind it’s pretty straight forward) but for some reason I always get blank stares. I then proceed to explain that TEED stands for Totally Enormous Extinct Dinosaurs… and that’s where people get really confused followed by a “WHAT?!”

Yeah, sure he has a slightly confusing name and he’s not that well known but that definitely doesn’t mean that the music isn’t amazing. I’ve liked “Household Goods” and “Sickly Child” for quite a while now, but I’m just stumbling onto his newer-ish stuff. TEED hails from the UK and has been releasing stuff since 2009. His best known song to date is “Garden” which has over twice and many video views as all of their other songs combined.

N-Tracks

ntracks

So I used to do this thing on my Tumblr called “N-Tracks”.

It’s basically a list of 7 (unless I throw in a bonus or 2) songs that I’ve recently come across. The “N” stands for new as well as nostalgic, because I’ll come across both. Why I post those specific songs on the list is because I either want to share something that’s new to me (and maybe you) or to share something that I’ve loved for a while but haven’t heard in a while. I also started this as a way to keep track of songs that I come across, that way I can go back and revisit them. I usually include music that is indie-alternative and sometimes has an electronic or synthy flare. Today I made another list on Tumblr and decided to share it on here too. If people like the idea, I might continue them on here as well. Let me know your thoughts or recommendations below if you have any!

N-Tracks #14

1. “Not The Same”- Tanlines
2. “Open”- Rhye
3. “Reykjavik”- Brolin

“Half Shadows” TOKiMONSTA’s New Album

Um… HELLO!

TOKiMONSTA’s new album is out tomorrow and Noisey just released an exclusive listen on their site here.

I just had a listen and I think it’s great so far. I’m loving The Center, 808 and of course the video attached above, for Go With It ft. MDNR. With another listen or two, I feel like the album might grow even more on me. I also think I might like it much more than the first album already. I remember listening to some of her older songs and I don’t remember ever really saying, “Oh wow, I like this” right off the bat like I am with some of these new songs. Growth and progression is definitely a good thing in my books- and it seems like that’s what she’s doing.

Unfortunately I JUST missed her at the Full Flex Express Tour last year since she was on so early in the day, and most people didn’t start getting there until after she was done. Looks like she might just make it on to my list of shows to see this year in Toronto after all.
