Roman Ruins - The Comedown (Galapagos Remix)

A few months ago I saw Beach House play live. Going in I knew that Victoria Legrand and Alex Scally would blow my mind (of course), but I was also quite impressed by the duo’s touring drummer Graham Hill. I was introduced, fittingly enough, to his solo project Roman Ruins through his remix of Beach House’s ‘Lover Of Mine,’ a few weeks later. So tonight when I saw that Phoenix’s Jacob McNaughton (aka Galapagos) finished up another rad remix, this time of Graham’s single ‘The Comedown,’ I knew it’d be dope. Check it.

MondayMix: 10/4


So it appears Monday has whipped around again. This week’s savory selection kicks off with a tune from Newcastle indie rockers Little Comets. They’re here to remind us that it’s October—good to know. Whether the fact that it’s now October, the February of fall, is a good thing is a totally different issue. We plunge on. Brazilian mestre Gilberto Gil warms up the mix with a recent live version of ‘Expresso 2222.’ Dois, Dois, Dois. So Gilberto may be the master of Brazilian music but Kassin+2 gives us a little something special from a newer generation, something we need, ‘Agua.’ Oxford’s Trophy Wife carries on with ‘Take This Night.’ Then we move north. Glasgow’s Belle & Sebastian dropped their new album Belle & Sebastian Write About Love not so long ago. Here’s one of my favorite songs of the record, ‘I Want The World To Stop.’ So a few weeks ago I saw Beach House and their live drummer Graham Hill really impressed me. It turns out Señor Hill has his own project called Roman Ruins, check out his tune, ‘The Comedown.’ Mark Ronson’s new album, Record Collection, is a great mix of styles and features some great artists (Ghostface Killah and Theophilus London among others). So why not feature a tune on this week’s mix? Speaking of Theophilus London, he’s done a brilliant rendition of The xx’s ‘You’ve Got The Love.’ New Zealand’s Glass Vaults cap of this week’s mix with a flowing three and half minutes of ‘New Space.’ Grab their Glass EP for a low price of nothing right over here. So now that’s sorted, sit back and ease yourself into the week.
