Still Have to Pack

28 03 2009

I’m off to Miami in a couple of hours and stoked to catch the last weekend of the Winter Music Conference. There’s gonna be a bunch of DJ shows tomorrow night, and after much convincing, my roommates finally agreed to come to the Fool’s Gold Records Party and potentially the Flosstradamus show at Heathrow Lounge. Why would they need to be persuaded to go to such awesome shows? Good question. The Fool’s Gold party is slated to feature among others, A-Trak and Treasure Fingers, which I’m most amped for, and a “surprise guest” or two. If the SXSW party is any indication, I’m guessing Kid Cudi might make an appearance? Fast times, here I come.

March Radness

The greatest weekend of the year is upon us. I’ve got my bracket filled out – I’m lookin for West Virginia to make some upsets and I’ve got Memphis taking the whole affair. On to the music, here are some songs I’m into lately..

First up is electro/jazz band Hess is More, brainchild of Danish musician Mikkel Hess. Here’s a remix of “Yes Boss” by Brooklyn fave Pocketknife …a little creepy, very hypnotic.

Harmonic indie-rock from SoCal 5-piece Local Natives, from their soon to be released debut album Gorilla Manor. I think I like any song that features string instruments.

Upbeat music + morbid lyrics actually works in this super-catchy remix of Swedish group Miike Snow’s “Burial”. And the Treasure Fingers remix of “Animal” love love every mix he comes out with.
