The Golden Filter + Empire of the Sun

29 04 2009

Empire of the Sun had been on The Golden Filter‘s ‘coming soon’ remix list for a while, and now it’s finally out! I’m a fan of anything by either artist, so no complaints here. This will be their last mix for a while as they turn their attention to their own songs. I’m eagerly awaiting a full release so they can go on tour again, and I can relive the transcendental musical experience of seeing “Solid Gold” performed live. Check out a couple of their previous mixes here and here.

Golden Filter/Presets – Show Tonight

3 04 2009

The Presets show is tonight at Webster Hall, with The Golden Filter as openers..should be an awesome time (except for the fact that it’s 18+..meh). I have to admit, I wasn’t immediately taken by The Presets when I heard them last year – thought the vocals were a little too jarring, but I’ve since been sucked in and now..this girl’s in love. I’m even more amped for the mysterious wonder that is The Golden Filter, who’ve been pretty elusive until recently..couldn’t find so much as a picture floating around until after SXSW, so I’m excited to catch a live glimpse. And they have yet to disappoint me with their disco-infused songs/remixes (check out the brilliant “Lay it Down” remix here). As an added bonus, there’s gonna be a late show with MSTRKRFT and Bloody Beetroots afterwards.

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.
