Veranda (RAC Remix) – Cillie Barnes

“You brought your young love
You brought your young love”

Nutritional Information:

First, if you haven’t listened to Cillie Barnes yet, well, you just did but keep listening to more. She is a favorite young female artist of ours, like Lorde level, ya I said it. She has got a great voice that pairs with some very cool production that bridges electronic pop synths and drums with some rather classic indie/alt-rock vibes.
Second, I’ll be the first to admit that I’m a RAC fanboy, but this remix is truly one of my favorite things I’ve heard in a while. Very interestingly, RAC’s and Cillie’s blend of electronic music and indie is rather similar so this pairing was destined for greatness. RAC adds some great dynamics to this song with a very 90’s guitar line and the catchiest combo of whistles and handclaps. Totally grooving as the hi-hat speeds up on the second verse. Free download.

Bound 2 (Solidisco Remix) – Kanye West

“Uh-huh honey”

Nutritional Information:

Woah. So Kanye’s Bound 2 got a ton of press recently with the beautiful music video cover done by James Franco and Seth Rogen (here’s the glorious side-by-side comparison of the videos). While we absolutely loved that and do dig the chill vibe of Kanye’s original, this is way up our alley. Solidisco has taken the really epic Charlie Wilson vocals that light up the energy of the original track and turned this newly iconic rap song into what could very well be an iconic electro song. I always felt that the section of the song highlighted here always could have been its own track, and here it is, complete with a super funky baseline and a jammin’ beat. Oh and it’s free to download so start bumping this.

SWIM – Fickle Friends

“You are not alone”

Nutritional Information:

Fickle Friends is a quintet coming out of Brighton that’s got a really fresh and catchy vibe. Their self-declared 80s new-wave pop sound is pretty infectious and caught my ear right away. SWIM is their new single and has got me hoping to here some more from them as much as I’m hoping for the summer sun that this song feels like.

Mind Over Matter- Young The Giant

“Will you stand by me?
Cause I’m a young man built to fall!”

Nutritional Information:

Young the Giant is back and their sophomore album “Mind over Matter” is set to be released in two weeks on January 21st. They just released their title track to the public via their soundcloud, and boy is it a fun song.  Mind over matter sounds like a more mature continuation of everything that we heard on their debut surf rock album.  Full of fun vocals, dreamy guitars and an almost well recorded garage rock sound.  I can’t help but feel like this is the perfect song to drive down PCH with.
