Hot Chip – “One Life Stand”

Released yesterday, One Life Stand is the third full length album to be released by this English electro pop group since their formation in 2000. Described by many reviewers as a clear sign of maturation by the band, this 10 track album is certainly much less of an oddball mash up of crazy beats and…

Quick Mix: The Flaming Lips, Hey Champ, Moving Units, Annie, and Fischerspooner.

After taking it back to the classics with last week’s mix, it’s time to return hard with artists pushing limits and setting high bars in their respective scenes. Some have been doing it for years, while others are relatively new on the radar, but regardless of tenure each of the tracks below is sure to…

Quick Mix: Pictures and Sound, Clipse, White Town, The Tough Alliance, and Friendly Fires

Coming in from all angles, yet again, this week’s track list should have something for everyone. Featuring everything from a one-hit wonder of the 90s, to a recent release from The Neptunes, and a standout dance punk single, the only consistent theme here is that each of these songs deserves at least one play, if…

This week’s grab bag of songs are about as random as they come. In this installment, hear The Strokes lead singer Julian Casablancas’s new first single in his self titled solo act, a classic soul tune, one of the best storytelling raps ever written, and an overlooked 90’s gem of a rock song, all in…

Quick Mix: The Walkmen, LittleJoy, Poet in Process, The Smashing Pumpkins, and Two Door Cinema Club

In the interest of keeping things slightly off kilter, this collection of tracks mixes old and new, while avoiding the heavy influences of electronically induced help other collections have highlighted in the past. In other words, Guitars in this batch are the instruments of choice. Listen and let us know if this selection is already…

Quick Mix: The Knux, Oceanlab, Tommy Sparks, Basement Jaxx, and Delphic

Electronica is a vague term on purpose. While you might hear all manner of bucket defining name tags thrown around like: “House”, “Trance”, “Electro”, “Electro Pop”, “Deep House”, “Dark House”, “Experimental”, “Trip Hop”, “Ambient”, etc… the reality is that just about every genre of music now a days is dabbling the computer driven back room…

Quick Mix: Bombay Bicycle Club, Peter, Bjorn, and John, Pnau, Ratatat, and Miike Snow

Musically it’s hard to point to a consistent sound from this batch of five tracks, so we’ll dismiss any claims of themes for this segment. Bouncing from Indie Rock, to Electro Pop, to Rap and back again, this collection is random, but designed to serve as a great starting point for all of you music…
