CHVRCHES COVER JANELLE MONAE’S “TIGHTROPE”
CHVRCHES has done a bunch of covers, which are freaking stellar if you ask me, ‘Tightrope’ is no exception. Nothing too crazy here, just the voice of an angelic indie prophet. Spaced out beats and an overall gloomy feel equals perfection.
WE ARE MAKO - OUR STORY (ORIGINAL MIX) *FREE DOWNLOAD*
I won’t judge you too harshly for going to Coachella if and only you stop by and give mad love to the producer duo Mako who in my book get brownie points for being fans of Radiohead, but a FAIL for working with Avicii.
THE CHAINSMOKERS VS. TOVE LO - HABITS
These two New Yorker’s seem to always be a step ahead of the rest. Once again The Chainsmokers rub our sweet spot by playing with Stockholm’s dirty pop sweetheart Tove Lo. Grab y’er free download by clicking the soundcloud link above.
ATLAS GENIUS - CENTRED ON YOU (VICEROY REMIX)
Freezing your bum off with the nipple hardening weather? Turn up the volume on this one and let the summertime feeling settle in your bones.Flashback of neon spandex pants and pink flamingoes come to mind when you come across a Viceroy remix.
YOUNG THE GIANT - MIND OVER MATTER
Young the Giant has been teasing us throughout 2013 with infectious indie rock/pop tracks. Finally, after a year of walking around with blue balls I shall get some relief. Their sophomore album Mind Over Matter drops January 21st.
THE HOOD INTERNET - IT’S STILL ABOUT FALLING (HAIM X ROBOTAKI)
Gha Gha haaa ...excuse me everytime I try to pronounce Haim a hair ball comes up. Anywho, The Hood Internet once again turns turd into gold, this time by incorporating the electro pop funky beats of Toronto producer Robotaki. I’m not worthy.
Looks like that’s a wrap! Gotta jump on the web and filter through some garbage, this shit’s not easy. We’ll see you all next week and until then we’re always taking music suggestions. Let us know what you want to see on here, if we like it we’ll post it and give you the credit.
About Beca Arredondo
Beca Arredondo is easily unamused with all things not related to her interests. On her good days you can catch her avoiding the California sun and glued to her Mac plotting the next big thing. If you happen to run into her on the street and notice her wearing headphones do NOT disturb her. She is not responsible for any possible damage. Aside from the above she's very sweet and perky and responds well to good music and food.
