Rich Girls + The Twelves

16 03 2009

In honor of Gossip Girl coming back on (finally!)..we have Donald Cumming’s (of The Virgins) attempt to verbally slay snobby Upper Eastsiders and the like, as remixed by The Twelves who give the song just the kick it needs.

I love The Twelves – they’ve really mastered the art of the subtle disco mix. Look, now you can even dance to a semi-gloomy Radiohead tune, but not feel like club kid extraordinaire. Ahh delicious balance.

And one more for the cheap seats in the back.

SayCet remixes

11 03 2009

Here’s a beautiful take on “Nude” brought to us by sayCet. I don’t really care for the original much, so I’d say mission accomplished. They were also included in Anoraak’s Nightdrive With You Remixes EP, which I was obsessed with last year. Check it out posthaste if you haven’t already.

And now I have an excuse to post my 2nd favorite song of 2008 – the Fear of Tigers remix of the same song.

Hello Mr. Remix

8 02 2009

A few remixes I’m into lately…

 

German DJ Christian Vorbau of the King Kong Club amps up Franz Ferdinand’s “No You Girls”. Love the lyrics to this one..Flick your cigarette, then kiss me/ Kiss me where your eye won’t meet me/ Meet me where your mind won’t kiss me/ Flick your eyes and mind and then hit me/ Hit me with your eyes so sweetly

A more sinister take on PB&J’s “Lay It Down” (from new album Living Thing, due out March 31) by The Golden Filter, who I think will be one of my ’09 obsessions (check out their myspace to hear “Solid Gold” and “Moonlight Fantasy” which dropped late last year). It took me a couple listens to get really into it, but the production is fantastic and the last 2.5 minutes are phenom.

And last up, Gigamesh adds just the right touch to these songs.
