The dog days of Summer are coming to end, and what better way to memorialize the everlasting daylight than in playlist form with some tunes that take you from Summer 16 to the bittersweet days of Fall. Brohlson and I deliver 20 tunes that define the changing of the seasons and ease you into sweater weather with selections from Natural Child, Jerkcurb, Captain Supernova, James Blake, Bon Iver, and the Don, Elton John. Have a listen and be sure to subscribe to the playlist as we prepare for a new edition, set to be curated later in the Fall!
Coldplay released a new single this past Tuesday and it seems like the internet could not get over how much it sounded like Bon Iver. Regardless of their new sound, it was only a matter of time before everyone jumped on the bootleg remix train. The first one that caught my eye was this subtle, yet dancey take by NYC resident and Parisian transplant LEVI. Available for free download via his facebook page it’s chill in all the best ways.
Toronto kids Zeds Dead have always garnered my respect for taking some really dope songs from every depth of the musical spectrum and putting their own spin on it, each time cutting and editing samples and songs without being cheesy or overdone. Not an easy feat, let me tell you.
Just released yesterday is their remix of indie music king Bon Iver; after stumbling across what they once thought was lost to the depths of an old hard-drive, DC and Hooks blew off the dust and cleaned it up, and lucky for the world they’re giving away the newly-polished remix for free. Mixing together 8-bit sounds and their intelligently-wound wobbles and slides with Bon Iver’s haunting and sad vocals, Zeds Dead provides a remix that once again showcases both their signature sound and finesse for rewiring tracks.
