Remix Baby: Phoenix "Lisztomania (Shook Remix)"
Maybe its because we’re completely blown away by this, but this could be one of the best remixes we’ve heard. Turning Phoenix’s Lisztomania into a funky soulful disco track, it really touches all the spots and its all down to dutch producer Shook. We are MIGHTY impressed.

Remix Baby: Body Language "Social Studies (Plastic...
We’ve kind of fallen in love with Body Language over the last week or so, You Can and Social Studies being are particular favourites. Here’s a great remix of Social Studies by Plastic Plates that takes away some of the cuteness of the original, adds a great double clap, and makes it into this cool little funky song. Go to PLASTiC PLATES soundcloud for some more great remixes. ...
Hoodie Allen: "Leap Year Mixtape"
Been waiting for this one since Mr. H. Allen dropped a teaser for his new mixtape Leap Year two weeks ago and then further enticed us with an official video for The Chase Is On. The follow up to his first mixtape, Pep Rally ,shows the evolution of Hoodie Allen, and he regards it as “me growing up on record”. Now everyone seems to be sampling indie tracks (Hoodie and Chiddy Bang seem...
St. Lucia: "All Eyes On You"
We really liked their first single The Old House Is Gone and now Heavy Roc’s St. Lucia have come back with a second single that is just as good, maybe even better. All Eyes On You is perfect again for summer and there’s something to it that hits us a little harder than their first single. And yes, it has a sax solo in it. Ladies and gentlemen, it gives me great pleasure to say the...

M83 have announced a new album Hurry Up, We’re Dreaming out October 17th.

tUnE-YarDs is back with the follow up to BiRd-BrAiNs which was recoreded only using a hand held voice recorder.

New Video: Foster The People "Helena Beat"
Here is the brand spanking new video for Foster The People’s latest offering Helena Beat. For die hard fans who’ve been listening to it since the EP came out in January, all we’ve had is the dogboarding video (don’t worry its not real) and for all those new fans its a proper video not just them on tour so yay for all. The video finds itself in some post-apocalyptic...

The Ravonettes: "Forget That You're Young"
If you haven’t already checked out this website RCRD LBL you are missing out on a trick as they give away legal mp3 downloads of loads and loads of top music. We found this track from The Ravonettes there. The opening of Forget That You’re Young kind of reminds us of the theme to Twin Peaks (weird huh) and from there it grows into a great pop/rock song. This Danish duo has been...

These guys, LOVE THEM. Anyway, here is a remix of their latest single Block After Block (the EP is available from iTunes here). But wait, there’s more! One of our favourite remixers/producers/artists Teen Daze has remixed it something beautiful! Matt and Kim- “Block After Block (Teen Daze remix)”

E-Dubble: Written Thursdays
We’ve posted on the man e-dubble a few times now, even some tracks from this here mixtape. But we were listening to it again today and thought we should put a spotlight on the WHOLE mixtape. So here it is. E-Dubble released a freestyle every Friday for just over a year, Written Thursday is a collection of these freestyles all mixed together all nicely. Whats great about the mixtape is its...

LEANN GRIMES (@leanngrimes)

Can’t exactly remember where we came across this mash up DJ, D.VELOPED , but it was last week sometime. On Childish Games he throws a Childish Gambino lyric over Backstreet Boy’s As Long As You Love Me with some 50 Cent, Adele, John Legend, Phoenix, Notorious B.I.G, Wu Tang Clan and more added for good measure. We liked. So here it is. The Childish Games by D.VELOPED D.VELOPED:...
Album Spotlight: The Temper Trap "Conditions"
Save for a few new remixes, we haven’t really heard that much new stuff from The Temper Trap, it’s sad. Waking up this morning all that was on the agenda (besides work) was to throw on their debut album Conditions. It was the album of summer ‘10 for us as soon as we heard Fader. Here’s a few of our favourite tracks from the album… Love Lost by The Temper Trap...
Best of 2011 So Far. According to ITYLTS.
Its July, so we’ve just passed into the second half of the year, HIGH FIVES. And with that milestone, every blog seems to be coming out with a best of the year so far list, so we thought we’d do the same. This is based merely on what ITYLTS thinks has been great this year. The only requirements to be on the list is for the track to either be released this year or to have...
Pretty Lights: "Pretty Lights vs Summertime"
Working at Glastonbury this year meant I was opposite the G Stage and managed to see/hear a few bands. On the Sunday night, Pretty Lights was one of them. For me it was a highlight and a grateful step away from just the monotonous drum n bass and techno that had been the soundtrack for working that weekend. Now Pretty Lights has released a great mash up for summer including all the greats like...
disCOVER: She & Him "Wouldn't It Be Nice (The...
The delightful She & Him (well mainly Zooey Deschanel) covering The Beach Boys Wouldn’t It Be Nice
This picture is appropriately gangster enough for their song Still from their mixtape Kills. The mixtape was released back on Christmas Eve and we only just downloaded it so you know we’re a little bit late on the uptake. The mixtape uses samples from Kanye West, Lil Wayne, Dr. Dre, Jay-Z and M.I.A to name a few but our favourite track off the mixtape Still uses the Still D.R.E. beat. We...
The Antlers: "I Don't Want Love"
We started listening to The Antlers second album Burst Apart today again and we realised we hadn’t posted on any songs since our review way back in April. Shame on us.

San Cisco: "Golden Revolver"
More often than not we click on songs on our hypemachine feed and are a bit unimpressed, we clicked on Panic Manual’s song of the day, and their glowing endorsement for the perfect summer song, and after listening to just the opening we were inclined to agree. All the way from Western Australia and fresh out of high school we’d like to say they have a bright future in front of them...

We’ve been meaning to post on this quirky singer/songwriter for a while. You might recognise The Show or Trouble Is A Friend from some movies in the past year or so, mainly Easy A (the movie that made Pocketful of Sunshine great again). If you like Feist or Regina Spektor, chances are you’re going to like Lenka we’d recommend The Show, Trouble Is A Friend and My Heart Skips A...
