Dragonett – I Get Around (Midnight Juggernaut Mix)

Clicky-pop-dance remix of Dragonett’s “I Get Around” by the Midnight Juggernauts, which sounds a lot more fun to me than the original.   There’s certain playfulness with this remix that I thought was missing from the original.

Candie Payne – By Tomorrow

Candie Payne hails form Liverpool and has that revival Motown sound I love, think Amy Winehouse and The Pipettes meets St. Etienne.   This track would fit nicely on a James bond sound track, I’m of course taking about a 1960’s Sean Connery, “BOND, JAMES BOND” version.

Caribou – Melody Day

Right out of the gate, this track just transcends the listener back to the hey day of the Beach Boys meets brit pop of the 1960’s.This track feels like a 1960’s Kaleidoscope.

Animal Collective – Peacebone

This track from Animal Collective is from their newest album Strawberry Jam which was released yesterday (Sept 10, 2007).

Layers on top of layers of noisy, scratchy, glitchy, music that builds and colescest into a bubbling fun choirs.   The vocals on this track remind me alot of   They Might Be Giants.
