Kimbra - Settle Down (Feature Cuts Remix)

Kimbra – Settle Down (Feature Cuts Remix)

Maybe y’all already knew this, but this Kimbra chick is apparently kinda hot sh*t at the moment. All of a sudden I keep hearing about her, and just bought her album Vows on Emusic. I had anticipated it being much more indie-kid, but in reality it has a nice quirky soulfulness to it. Adding to...
Andreya Triana - "Far Closer (Tokimonsta Remix)"

Andreya Triana – “Far Closer (Tokimonsta Remix)”

Andreya Triana’s album Lost Where I Belong was one of 2010’s gems. You may have heard her distinctive vocals previously on works with Flying Lotus (“Tea Leaf Dancers“), Bonobo, Aaron Jerome and more. Lost Where I Belong is her solo debut, and while retaining some elements of the experimental, it’s also a very warm, kinda...
Little Dragon - 1-O.A.K. Remix of Blinking Pigs

Little Dragon – 1-O.A.K. Remix of Blinking Pigs

He entered this remix, titled...

I dutifully downloaded it but only recently got around to listening. Well I’m glad I didn’t let this one slip through the net. Stereotree is a French blog that seems...
Common S.T.O.R.Y - Beatnick and K-Salaam

Common S.T.O.R.Y – Beatnick and K-Salaam

So as Common prepares to release Universal Mind Control, an album that I suspect will be either loved or hated in a similar way to Electric Circus, Beatnick & K-Salaam have put together a retrospective that reminds us what we loved about Common in the first place. Common S.(tories) T.(old) O.(ver) R.(emixed) Y.(ears) features some...
