Encore – Jay Z & Nicolas Jaar (Buzz-T remix)

17 Jul

Jaar-Z

This is . . . unexpectedly fantastic. Nicolas Jaar has been remixed with Jay Z’s encore and the results are pretty damn dynamic. There’s something here to please everyone’s taste as the remix cruises past unexpected curiosity to something kinda lush. L:isten and replay in the summer to seem cool in front of your friends; ‘I have this great remix you won’t have heard before . . .’:

Channel Orange – Frank Ocean

11 Jul

So many things running through my head right now. Yes, I just did a post about Frank when I myself champion variety. Yes, Channel Orange was scheduled for a later release, and yes, I have to learn many pointless things for my British Citizenship test (including that Welsh is most widely spoken in Wales. Who would have thought?). But just please….

Sweet Life – Frank Ocean

7 Jul

World, let it be known that I love Frank Ocean. The singer has been in the limelight recently after a post on his Tumblr that appeared to tell of a summertime romance with another guy caused the world to label him as gay or bisexual. Fear not, Frank. In the words of Celine Dion, I will always love youuuuuuuuu…

He Said I Said – Cooly G

5 Jul

With the others all on holiday celebrating the end of the school year, it’s up to me and Henry to hold down the blog fort. I thought it would be difficult to satisfy all of you, but then I actually remembered that we’re the coolest ones anyways, and so in a way it filters out all of the bad, leaving you with only the best. (Disclaimer: I’m not actually saying the others are terrible. Otherwise why would they be here? They’re all great. Except Michael. Just kidding. (Or am I?) I am).

Let It Be (feat. Veela) – Blackmill

3 Jul

Ah, nothing like a night in the freezing cold English countryside to help you forget about your city problems. Having (not really) slept on the floor of a dusty old barn, the 2 hour car journey home needed music that would be enjoyable for bleary-eyed teenagers. Fortunately, Blackmill was there to save the day.

(More) Sounds That Are Helping Me To Stay Alive: A(nother) Downbeat Electronic Playlist to Wash Your Stress (Even Further) Away

14 Jun

I have been under the radar, but you’ll have to excuse me while I finish off what ranks among the worst weeks of my life. I thought I’d lift my head out of a book just long enough to give you the second part of my playlist full of relaxing tunes that manage to counterbalance my hair-pulling stress (to some extent). I really enjoyed writing the last playlist post because it was actually refreshingly easy to compile a list of songs that I love, and that I’ve been listening to recently. The hardest part was finding a picture to go with the post, and it was a similar challenge this time. So, like any struggling image hunter would, I’ve gone with a feline DJ. Time to sit back, relax, and here we go…

Call Your Girlfriend – Robyn

12 Jun

(Prank) Call Your Girlfriend. Don’t.

I was going to hook you guys up with a new, on-the-scene songwriter today but I had to shuffle things about. Blame exams, everyone. Not me. Anyway, recently I moved our kitchen’s speaker into my room because, you know, I like music. Anyway, a few of the albums to which I’ve been listening during revision are Body Talk, fun. at Fingerprints and a lot of Watch The Throne. Body Talk is mind-blowing; electric hit after hit with constant, underlying heart.  Robyn is the popstar omnipotent at creating radio ready hits (but if only!) that pack emotional energy. Recently, they used Dancing On My Own in Girls to totally endearing effect. Check that scene below and Call Your Girlfriend after the jump (the latter is absolutely, haltingly perfect.):
