Too Much Retro Weekend Mix

No Comments 08 November 2012

Yes. The weekend smell is drifting up to you. In 48 short hours, you’ll be wearing your favorite tank top, tossing back beers and forgetting about that meeting where Carla made that bitchy face at you when you mentioned the coffee filter needing to be replaced every time someone uses it. Everyone knows it’s you, Carla. Don’t be like that.

TANK TOPS. BEERS. THE EIGHTIES. It’s all shooting around your mind like a ninja turtle on a Mattel hover-board and eating spaghetti-os out of your Chip and Dale thermos. And this is your inspired soundtrack. It’s not from the eighties, but it sure sounds like it.

remixes a catchy pop song to make it acceptable and even more dance-able, smashes up a hip-hop anthem and some Casio inspired craziness to make some “Gooooo”, and gets remixed to sound like something delicious Prince and collaborated on (IF ONLY).

Metro Station – “Shake It (Futurecop! Remix)”
The Hood Internet – “Goooo In Paris (Jay-Z & Kanye West vs. TNGHT)”
Aeroplane – “In Her Eyes (ft. Jamie Principle) (Beni Remix)”

BONUS ROUND: I don’t know what’s happening but I think I’m in love with this. Every inspirational eighties song rolled into one megamix the perfect length for a workout.

Neon Hitch

No Comments 30 September 2011

Over the past couple months I’ve noticed this gal popping up all over the internet.  At first I wrote her off thinking it was merely her “I don’t give a f*ck” attitude and outside the box style that got her the attention.  I blamed it on our strange fascination of watching a pop-culture train wreck unfold in front of our eyes (see Kreayshawn).  Then I heard her sing.  I was wrong.  Neon Hitch basically embodies the voice of Amy Winehouse, the style of Lady Gaga, and the anthem-tendencies of Britney Spears.  Listen to her first single “Get Over U” below.

Neon Hitch – “Get Over U”

Neon Hitch has had an interesting story so far.  She was born in London and grew up in a gypsy-sort of lifestyle as a street performer also working in the circus before running off to India for several years in her teens.  Also, yes Neon Hitch is her birth given name.  Fortunately her talent was eventually discovered being signed to Warner Bros in early 2010.  Hitch recorded what would be a debut album, but from what I’ve seen only select singles like “Get Over U” have been released.  She’s not sitting idle though, recently she’s been releasing hip-hop covers including personal favorite ’s “No Hands”.

This girl will be huge soon…then I’ll have to stop liking her.

If you haven’t heard of , it is the brainchild, private experiment, and solo project of Matthew Mondanile, the guitarist for the New Jersey rooted psychedelic surf pop band: .  Known for recording in tool sheds and his parent’s basement, listening is a prying look into the Ducktails psyche.  He easily bridges the gap between noise and pop music, with a dreamy drone sound and agreeable guitar riffs.  And it doesn’t hurt when you throw a into the mix.  Grab a listen.

Tennis – “Seafarer”

No Comments 06 January 2011

Patrick Riley and Alaina Moore’s path toward the formation of is an inspiring tale.  Dreaming of a life on the sea, the Denver-ite lovers set their minds towards purchasing a sail boat and made it happen through years of saving.  The self taught sailors embarked on a 7 month journey up the North American coastline, a 2500-mile trek oozing with the kind of minimalistic experiences most of us dream about.  After returning home and eventually signing with Fat Possum Records, we’re sure to hear some interesting stuff from them for some time.

” is the newest single from the upcoming album and is most certainly a direct product of their unique trip.  It expresses how love-filled months at sea should feel, the lo-fi sound points out the beauty in simplicity, and reminds of that retro prom you’ve always imagined.   will be released January 18, 2011 on Fat Possum Records.  Order a copy HERE.

New Robyn Single

No Comments 02 August 2010

– “Hang With Me”

Swedish pop princess Robyn will be releasing her 2nd album of 2010, (the sequel to Pt. 1), next month.  The first single, “Hang With Me,” is a catchy electropop tune in which Robyn requests for us to not “fall recklessly, headlessly in love” with her…too late Robyn.  Just to tease us a bit more the singer gives us an endearing documentary-style video to accompany the single.  In it we get a personal look at our beloved Dancehall Queen mingling with fans, performing in hotel rooms, and even riding a roller coaster.  Body Talk Pt. 2 will be released September 6th giving her a mere four months to release her proposed 3rd album of 2010.
