Rainbows of Death

Rainbows of Death huh?!?! Electronic acts continue to get weirder and weirder... Is it some sort of marketing formula or is is it just weirdbeard style? Listen to this gem and you be the judge... Fortunately, I did all the heavy lifting and spared you from all the creepy stuff that comes up when you google the phrase... including conspiracy theories or death metal websites. ThIS Rainbow of Death is from Aussieland and they do have a Facebook page, which describes the duo as a black guy and a white guy plus a couple of synths creating Nu Disco & House... good work ROB.

Cassius - I love U So - Video

I seranaded Savannah with this song on our way home from Dos Coyotes, which reminded me that i needed to post this sweet video...

Cassius, I Love you so from WE ARE FROM L.A on Vimeo.

Trip Down Memory Lane: The Bloody Beetroots

Back in my burgeoning electronic phase, I stumbled across these guys and became instantly hooked... Justice had come out with their catchy D.A.N.C.E. track and hard core electronic music was reaching its tipping point... BB somehow took it to the next level and I ingeniously was able to convince Savannah to go with me to a BB concert with Felix Cartel as the opener and LA Riots at the Roxy

we'll start off a track for the small minded, a little more friendly for everyone...
Steve Aoki - The Killers - Spaceman (Steve Aoki & The Bloody Beetroots Remix)

Next up is straigh Bloody FIRE! pure electro party rager circa 2008
The Bloody Beetroots - Butter (EP Version)
but sometimes its more fun to watch a video of epic surf footage and epic electro party jams... wait for the BB goodness to kick in around 1:06min

This one is a newbie, but a goodie... The Bloody Beetroots, after a lot of initial success, got lost in the burgeoning genre and spent a lot of their time creating rowdy garbage... so its nice to hear a new track of theirs reminiscent of their original material.
The Chemical Brothers - Dissolve (The Bloody Beetroots Remix)

Last up is quite possibly the most intense song you'll ever cross paths with... fun to creep out friends or add to a halloween mix... tread lightly!

RCRDLBL Pilfering #2 - Huge List

Gonna try something a little different this time. I'm going to put some of the more indie alternative tracks in the front, hoping that ppl won't immediately get turned off by my weirder tastes...

Cold War Kids - Louder than ever

Voxhaul Broadcast - Leaving on the 5th (Jump Clubb remix) --- reminiscent of a Miike Snow production. Totally enjoyable

Has some sort of distorted gospel soul BRMC meets Black Keys... grimy funky pop music featuring Wale as well as hand claps and infectious breaks. Never thought I would be saying this, but good work Samantha Ronson...?!!?

White Buffalo - Oh Darlin, What have I done - Wiskey tavern folk/rock for those who aren't familiarThis brings me back to the TLand days...

Tame Impala (Pilooki Remix)

sounds a little Feisty... like it might end up on an ipod commercial - remixed by RAC(remix artist collective) who often times add interesting elements to songs without completely destroying the original integrity - good work guys...

Sunday Girl vs Rusko - Hey Stop - posted for Nick

Claire Maguire - Aint Nobody (Coyote Remix) - Whoa... I feel like I'm getting transported back to a Fleetwood Mac concert

Dels - Trumpalump (Joe Goddard Remix) - JG is the frontman for Hot Chip... so you know its gonna be good.

Das Racist - I'm Up on That --- These guys are awesome... clever, funny, witty and fresh. Atmosphere raps meets Beck inspired spoken word by Middle Eastern dudes

MJ? JT? nope... Penguin Prison with a nice poppy gem. His sound should eventually get some radio play...

How many artists can you squeeze into one track? I'm not a fan of spankrock or amanda blank... but fortunately Shazam rescues this one with some grooved out retro piano synths and overall laid back interpretation.

again.. not that stoked on spankrock... but when he's getting remixed by Todd Edwards, who chops, twists and distorts everything... I love it.

Annorak - Try Me (Jupiter Remix) - this can transform your bedroom into the island beach bar or at least add a little bit pep to your lovelorn step.

Chemical Brothers - Dissolve (the Bloody Beetroots remix) - These guys absolutely destroy shiz... and they don't hold back on this one.

UK Grime Meets UK MC meets UK Dubstep... heavy... sounds like a Dizzy wannabe behind the mic. whatevs... I like it

Oneohtrix Point Never - Returnal (ft Anthony Hegarty)(Blixaboy Futurna Freemix) --- ambient atmospheric reminiscent of a radiohead track

Blixaboy - New Age Steppa --- ambient haunting gorillaz styled dub - really good and weird!

interesting... not for the faint of heart

pure techno weirdbeardness with the electronic music Godfathers, Simian Mobile Disco... seriously, go buy their Attack Destroy Sustain Release and you will not regret (don't listing to this song as a point of reference) - Strap into your electric chair and let this one fry your brain (jay raymond, i think you'll like this one...)

irresistable 80's style groove...

Got a lot of stuff going on right now... chewing through a new round of music and should have some good posts up in the near future. In the meantime, enjoy these nutritous vids of weirdos using veggies to make mediocre music...

This next one sounds almost like the Godfather's theme song

Temper Trap Remixed...

First off... Temper Trap's Conditions is a great album. There is also a Conditions Remixed, which takes to album to a whole nother level after commissioning other artists to roll up their sleeves, get dirty and remix the orginal songs. Noteworthy is Kings of Convenience's album Versus, which did the same thing albeit nine years ago (and still incredible today)

As a starter, we'll begin with the original track to give everyone a foundation. For the indie purists out there, the original may be preferable. Its a great track but a little too slow for my alrady acclimated to crazy shiz musical brain.

The Temper Trap - Soldier On by bananacakes

Next up is the same track, this time under the helm of Rusko, who instinctually set the mood for a little sensual dance moves (I imagine Nick & Miller both working a dimly lit room full of girls with their dance moves((noteworthy is chromeo's music video for Night by Night doing exactly that - Chromeo - Night by Night)<-- highly recommended viewing))

Soldier On (Ruskos F'kin Seagull Remix).mp3 by Zucco

Lastly, and what I really want to share with all of you, is the same song remixed by an artist who needs a little more love, Big City Love Affair. By not taking quite so much artistic liberty allows BCLA to really draw on what really makes the song in the first place. Preserving the intimacy, a little less production and a little more step to keep the listener interested.

Soldier On by BCLA

Bonus: another TT track remixed by Keljet, who sucessfully captains this spaceship into a galaxy of rythmic house, groovy guitar riffz and infectious house... loving it.

Miami Horror

This song just came on my ipod and I had a flashback to Malibu beach parties and awesome times in Santa Monica circa 08-09, which in turn inspired this impromtu post...Its hard to explain how good this song is and I'm not feeling that creative right now. Just trust me... Miami Horror started off remixing songs and have since graduated to making their own infectious Austrailian electronic pop...
