- Grime's hard edge sometimes makes me long for the days of UK 2-step garage. Not that I don't like grime; I feel it sometimes needs to be tempered with some more soul. Something besides Roll Deep. I have not been keeping up with the genre so I have no idea if Artful Dodger, Todd Edwards, or MJ Cole have made anything worth listening to lately as the genre has gone mostly underground. This UK one-hit wonder always puts me in a good mood: Sweet Female Attitude - Flowers (sunship edit)
I hope it does the same for you.
- An interesting and fun mash-up here with Twista (Overnight Celebrity) vs. Sigur Ros (Staralfur); however, it's hampered by the flawed execution. The clash of the Twista and Sigur Ros vocals is mildly grating but enough to ruin my complete enjoyment. The beat is also very generic. Flosstradamus - Overnight Star
- Domino Records is re-releasing an indie classic, Sebadoh's "III", as a double album including a disc of rare singles and demos. Keep the August 8 release date on your radar.
Sebadoh - The Freed Pig from "III"
Probably the most accessible song on the album.
Sebadoh - Gimme Indie Rock from rare 7"
A hilarious brief history of indie rock a la Lou Barlow.
Sebadoh - III
Labels: electronic, indie rock, mash-up, mp3
