MondayMix: 10/18


This week’s mix kicks off with one of my favorite new bands, LA’s Kisses, except this time they’re remixed by Active Child. Generationals follow suit with a splendid track off their upcoming Trust EP. Once again, Blackbird Blackbird is in on the action; here’s a tune off his Seeing Suge collab with Emay and Star Slinger—grab their first single “Breaking” here. At the beginning of the year I was really into Australian electropop duo Empire Of The Sun. They’re probably the most remixed group of the past few months but I still enjoy Andre Anjos’ recently finished remix of Walking On A Dream. Baltimore’s Rapdragons and Moss of Aura join up and drop it like it’s hot with a sweet remix of She Got Me. Next up is a tune off Ocean Age’s Forest, entitled Hopscotch. Is Tropical, Brazil’s DJ Dolores and Mexico’s Piyama Party (with Pipe Llorens) round out this week’s mix. Enjoy!

Blackbird Blackbird - Fly (Feat. Steffaloo)

It’s no surprise that San Fransisco’s Blackbird Blackbird is back with yet another tantalizing track. You may remember a few weeks ago “Mr. Prolific” released a song, ‘Starlight,’ with the wonderful vocals of Steffaloo (Steph Thompson, Tim from smokedontsmoke’s sister). Well they’ve come together once again, this time crafting a beautiful four-minute dreamscape— ‘Fly.’ Steph’s vocals may not be the only thing you recognize on this one, it’s actually a reworked version of ‘Fade to White (feat. Emily Reo)’ off Mikey’s Modern Disbelief EP from last month. This one’s fresh off the presses, check it out!

Also, on November 23rd Mikey will release his Fade To White/Letting Go 7” on Fire Talk Records (Dead Gaze, Tennis). You can pre-order it here.

Blackbird Blackbird - Float On (Modest Mouse Cover)

Tree & Sky

Whipping off fresh tracks weekly, San Fransisco’s Blackbird Blackbird is as prolific as they come. Check out Mikey’s cover of Float On by Modest Mouse. He takes the song and crafts it into his own chilled out two-minute soundscape. Download the tune and the rest of Blackbird Blackbird’s Happy High EP at his bandcamp.

Blackbird Blackbird - Pure

San Fransisco’s favorite pop/electronic/chillwave artist Blackbird Blackbird released his brilliant 18-track Summer Heart over a month ago, but the dreamy vocals and flickering xylophones of the track “Pure” still linger in my ears. If you haven’t already, you should definitely head on over to Blackbird Blackbird’s bandcamp and grab Summer Heart for ten big ones. Also check out the free download of his latest EP, Rarities, which is a collection of tunes that didn’t quite make it onto the LP. Blackbird Blackbird is constantly working on new remixes and songs so I’d expect to see his name (and his tunes) spring up more and more around these interwebs in the coming months. Immerse yourself below.

Wait a tick, I featured Liberia feat. Prizes by Blackbird Blackbird and Pao Pao on a Mondaymix a few weeks ago— here it is once again. So good.

MondayMix: Here Comes The Sun

The sun is bearing down today, but I best get used to it. Here’s a set of ten tracks to get us through the sizzling heat. Alright, to set things in motion we’ve got one of my favorite covers— Glasgow’s Belle & Sebastian’s rendition of The Beatles’ “Here Comes The Sun” is pure class. Darwin Deez follows up with some steezy beat-bopping words regarding his Deoxyribonucleic acid. Virginia’s own Barcelona hit up Daytrotter last August, it pretty damn good, as most things are that trickle out of Illinois studio. One of my favorite all around dudes has got to be Kings of Convenience’s and The Whitest Boy Alive’s Erlend Øye— some of his solo releases have really impressed me just in the way that they diverge from the music that he produces with his two bands (by the way his dance moves are stunning). RAC’s André Anjos introduced me to LA band White Arrows with his remix of “Coming or Going.” Here’s another track off their EP, which you can pick up on their bandcamp fo free. Electronic pop outfit Chairlift got on the track with Brooklyn’s Telepathe, the results are “So Fine.” Au Revoir Simone gets some french lovin’ from Paris’ The Teenagers. Luckily (or perhaps not unfortunately) the ‘creative’ threesome’s lyrical wonder is constrained to that of their female counterparts in their take on “Shadows.” LA-based Superhumaniods have their go on Blackbird Blackbird’s “Hawaii,” quite a fresh little rendition. Check out Blackbird Blackbird’s Summer Heart here. Fear not, Oakland indie rock band Rogue Wave is on the mix with “Fear Itself” off Permalight. Rounding out this week’s mix is Ra Ra Riot’s energetic “Too Dramatic” off their forthcoming release, The Orchard.
