Songs and Video of the Day

Published on November 21st, 2010

Sunday is upon us once again, and for many of us this means Tylenol, naps, and catching up on schoolwork. All of this can be made more pleasant with new music, and with that in mind, I thought I’d take a minute to share some tracks I’ve been meaning to post.

Right This Second – Deadmau5 /// A four-minute radio rip of this new Deadmau5 single debuted a few weeks ago on Radio 1, and the full, almost double-length version was released earlier this week. Definite sign of more good things to come from the mau5.

Royal Blue – Cold War Kids /// This new single from Cold War Kids’ upcoming Mine Is Yours showcases the group’s ability to transform a pop song into something more. The soul-filled vocals and punchy bass line contribute greatly to the track, which prevails over the album’s other single, ‘Louder Than Ever’ (download). Mine Is Yours comes out January 25, here’s hoping a tour with a stop in Philly will follow.

Mr. November – The National /// Just because I love The National. This track, from their stellar 2005 Alligator, is the perfect soundtrack for a chilly November day.

BONUS: BBC Mixtape 2010 – Bassnectar (click for download + tracklist) /// Bassnectar released this 30-minute mixtape earlier this week. For those who saw him at the Electric Factory, it will likely serve as a reminder of his live set. He drops a lot of his own material, and also includes some of the Sub Focus and Jimi Hendrix remixes he played a few weeks ago.

Today’s video is a real treat, especially if you’re like me and still find yourself playing Arcade Fire’s The Suburbs on repeat. Directed by Spike Jonze, this video slowly turns from light to dark in an unexpected way. Check it out.
