maybe I'm not that busy


now that I've officially stated, that I should spend my time studying, more and more good music comes my way and I cannot NOT post it. So for the time being, I decided on only posting mixes, because it saves time, that I need for learning. Anyway, The Black Ghosts are releasing a mixtape on March, 17th, consisting of known BG songs like Face, Someway Through This or the remix of The Whip's Muzzle N°1 and some other awesome tracks, kinda like the mixtape, Hadouken! released lately. I'll keep you posted as soon as I know more. But first of all, there's a free mash-up track, which you can download below.
And the other tracks? The same as usual: a bit of everything, somethin' old, somethin' new, some beats, some guitars and all of them highly recommended.
Have fun!

I've been a bad blogger lately


and I'll probably continue to do so in the next two weeks, because my exams are ahead and I have to spend my time studying rather than looking up stuff for your listening pleasure. Even though I prefer the latter, I still want to keep on going to university, so I won't be posting that much. So I've done a somewhat big mix for you, consisting of something old, something new, something that has been sent to me and all in all, something great. It's mostly electronic goodness - except for the Jens Lekman remix, which is just as good.
Have fun!

MP3: Rings - You Remind Me (Ruby Beats Remix)
MP3: Sébastien Tellier - Sexual Sportswear
MP3: Chromeo - Fancy Footwork (Guns'N'Bombs Remix) 
MP3: De BoogieBoys - Audiotonique 
MP3: Calling In Sick - Ninja Gaiden 
MP3: Jens Lekman - I'm Leaving You Because I Don't Love You (Spoolwork Remix) 
MP3: Mr. Oizo - Patrick 122 (CALLING IN SICK MIX) 
MP3: Operator Please - Get What You Want (G.L.O.V.E.S Remix) 
MP3: Hot Chip - Hold On 
MP3: The Similou - All This Love (Love II Infinity Club Mix) 
MP3: Hadouken! - Liquid Lives (H! Re-Rub)
MP3: Prototypes - Danse Sur La Merde (Dopewerewolf mix)

one for tonite

I hate winter. I'm ill again. It's now the third time in two months, that I've been sick and that is surely three times too much. I'm sorry, but I have to hurry through this very short post, because my head is on the verge of exploding and I don't wanna start crying right here in the library.
Right, Lightspeed Champion's debut Falling Of The Lavender Bridge is due on February, the 5th. I can hardly say, that I longingly awaited this album, because I never really listened much to Test Icicles.
For those who don't already know, Devonte Hynes is now Lightspeed Champion and was formerly member of indie/punk/dance combo Test Icicles, who, unfortunately, split up in 2006.
Anyway, how is Falling Of The Lavender Bridge? It is surely different than I expected. I completely ignored the single Galaxy On The Lost, which was released in November, so I was pretty surprised by the outcome of the record. I expected dance tunes or at least something weird or funky, but it is just so so much better. It is a mixture between country/folk tunes, compiled with wonderful melodies and despite the irritable song titles, fine lyrics. Especially the instrumental use on Falling Of The Lavender Bridge is rather interesting. Songs starting off with acoustic guitars and ending with an orchestra. This is pretty cool for 'just a debut album'
Anyway, listen to some songs from Falling Of The Lavender Bridge:

MP3: Lightspeed Champion - Devil Tricks For A Bitch
MP3: Lightspeed Champion - Dry Lips
MP3: Lightspeed Champion - No Surprise (For Wendela)/Midnight Surprise

preorder it @amazon

I'm off.

eight songs for f-f-friday


Alright I've been a lazy blogger lately, but I'm trying on improving this. Not tonight, because I've got stuff for my studies to do, boring, unnerving, but necessary stuff, so this'll be a short one. We got another fantastic remix from Fisher Preyes, this time of London's Disco Damage. 4Hero's Morning Child is featured on their new EP, released digitally last week. Besides some cool remixes, Morning Child itself is a cool mix of soul and jazz, think Stars with more R'n'B influences. Purchase the EP via iTunes. Goodtimes Goodtimes from London have a new record called Glue out, kinda like Paolo Nutini, but more folk and better lyrics. Get Glue by clicking this. Then British Sea Power's Do You Like Rock Music? is set to be out next week. It is indeed as wonderful as you'd expect it to be, fine lyrics, great rock tunes. Same goes for Magnetic Fields' Distortion, which is also out next week, so you should get your hands on it. Hot Chip's Made In The Dark has had it's going ons around the blogs, so mine wont miss it. It is as you'd expect the sophomore album of Hot Chip to be. Kinda like The Warning and then again, totally different. It'll be finally out on February 5th and you can preorder it here. Besides, I'm not gonna post a new Hot Chip song, you can find some promo versions via searching The Hype Machine, but the song I picked is from 05's Kitsuné Fur. These New Puritans also release their album Beat Pyramid at the end of January. Beat Pyramid is awesome, funky beats, crazy lyrics and more than danceable tunes. And last, Love Motel from Switzerland, a very cool new electronic band -despite the cheesy name- a bit similar to Hot Chip. Check their myspace for further release and tour dates.

MP3: Disco Damage - Cocktail Cunt (Fisher Preyes Remix) 
MP3: 4 Hero - Morning Child 
MP3: Goodtimes Goodtimes - Desire
MP3: British Sea Power - The Great Skua 
MP3: Magnetic Fields - Courtesans

MP3: These New Puritans - Infinity Ytinifni 
MP3: Love Motel - Mind the Void 

ok, I'm off.

it's freeeeeeeeeeezing


I hate winter. and snow. And cold and ice and freezing. That's the reason, why I'm sitting huddled next to my heater and refuse to put one foot out the door. The other reason is that I'm too tired to go out, so I'll post a mix. Haven't done a mix in at least two weeks.

The mix contains some electro, some indie and some rest, that I've been listening to this week.
