My pikachu outfit arrived just in time for Pemberton this weekend Dangerous.

I won’t be the only one up there…turns out these pokemons are really popular again.

and can we also talk about how great this Arkells pic is? I got an advanced copy of their new album Morning Report, so there will be an interview with Max Kerman and some talk of the new record next week on your friendly neighbourhood music blog.


Last night I was DJing at Match (I’m back there tonight and tomorrow)…and was jamming a remix/cover of Tracy Chapman’s “Fast Car.” Reminded me how much I LOVE the original.

Friend of the blog Ciele also loves the song and sent over her 2010 cover.

and the original. Amazing.

Busy weekend…. DJing, maybe some Spani Pool concession action, Taco Fest, then Sunday up at Pemberton.

Go with yourself.

I really should have written a blog yesterday. So much new music to get to.

Let us begin in Philadelphia and a record I will for sure be picking up on October 30th. Beach Slang‘s The Things We Do To Find People Who Feel Like Us. Compact disc, digital, and cassette (so hot right now) but the jewel in the crown will be one of those 800 press vinyl from the Polyvinyl store.

NOISEY“…packs in their trademark hopeless romanticism and a lust for nostalgia over emotional vulnerability.” 
Grand Stand: “The feelings of youth and vulnerability lie at the core of Beach Slang‘s music, which is part punk, part pop and all catharsis. It references the ghosts of the Replacements but keeps one foot firmly rooted in the present. It’s fun and it’s serious. It’s sad but it isn’t.”

I love it.


Silversun Pickups from Silverlake, California (or is it Silver Lake?) have a new record called Better Nature out on September 25th.

Check out this short-film for the single “Nightlight.” The film was directed by Mike Pellington…Mike Pellington, you mean the same guy that directed Pearl Jam’s “Jeremy?” Yeah THAT Mike Pellington. You’re watching Meg Steedle who might recognize if you watched Boardwalk Empire.


I just posted some Four Tet the other day…and now this? A recently re-discovered Four Tet song posted up on Soundcloud.

Let’s have a listen to “BACK2THESTART.”

Free download? This song will be making the lounge set. 100%.


What else… right… a remix of Tracy Chapman’s “Fast Car.” I *feel* like I’ve heard this song, or a remix like it before? No matter…. Classic song, sounds good. Also a free download.


Tomorrow I should have a remix of Tove Lo’s “Bodies.” and working on interviews with Mumford & Sons, Royal Blood and Atlas Genius.

Go with yourself.
