Drums, Guns and bears, oh my!

This post is half for a friend, and half for anybody out there in internet land. The song is Belarus, by Low, off the new album "Drums and Guns". I hope you like it. Very droney, very beautiful.

Low - Belarus

Stupid Computer

Finally got my internet to work again (by the way, tech support sucks. Reinstall your OS my ass...), and can get back on here more.

Since I had no internet, not as much new stuff I've found, but the new Bjork album caught my ear. Her new album, Volta, is a stunningly weird outing, with a few other artists chipping in to help occasionally (most notably Antony from Antony and the Johnsons on My Juvenile). The Standout track for me is still the first single, Earth Intruders.

Warning: The files are .m4a, so unless you use iTunes (or something else that uses mp4s) or have a converter, you're SOL, sorry for the inconvenience.

Adam Youth Will Eat Your Babies

Is it just me, or does Of Montreal need to be mixed with a rap song? No... Well, it's been done anyway. Adam Youth! Thunder Shark has mashed up Of Montreal's Gronlandic Edit with Nas' Hope, creating a rap with a rolling bassline and beat, and the occasional input of Of Montreal's crooning lead vocalist, Kevin Barnes.

Remixing a Remix

Fine, so it's not so much a remix as a mash up. Basically, it's We Takin' Over by Lil' Wayne, mashed up with We Takin' Over Remix (which is actually just a few extra Lil' Wayne verses), with a few little things thrown in. But frankly, who doesn't want more Lil' Wayne in that song. In the end it turns out just being about 7 minutes of Lil' Wayne goodness, which, really, isn't that all we want?

The Perks of Being Rejected by Hype Machine....

Well, apparently, a bunch of blogs have been attacked by Web Sheriff for posting Icky Thump. They are caught sharing the track by Web Sheriff checking Hype Machine for the song, so the fact that I haven't been around long enough or something to be accepted by The Hype Machine lets me do illegal things, like post this magnificent track!

The White Stripes return with a vengeance, attacking the attackers of Immigration apparently. All I know is this track is fueled by such a blistering riff that I had no choice but to listen again. It was out of my hands. Jack White, in my opinion, can do no wrong.
