Wow, sorry about that week-long hiatus. What with traveling woes and a relaxing vacation to San Francisco, I haven’t had much time to listen to new music, or update the site. But here I am, returning with a few nuggets of music goodness.
First, check out this track, “Stuck on Repeat”, which I snagged over at GWFAS a while back but hadn’t given a real listen to until recently. Little Boots dropped the proverbial bomb on us with this one, giving me another song to add to my running mix, fitting nicely alongside Daft Punks “Too Long/Steam Machine” and Bodyrox’s “Yeah Yeah”.
Next up is a remix of Timbaland’s “The Way I Are”, in which the original beat is pretty much completely swapped with Alice Deejay’s MEGA-JAM “Better Off Alone”. More like a mash-up then a remix, the “Better Off Alone” remix is one of those rare songs in which the sum is better than the two combined parts. Although, I could listen to “Better Off Alone” a million times before I got sick of it.
Lastly, I implore you readers to go back and listen to Rogue Wave’s last two albums, Asleep at Heaven’s Gate and Descended Like Vultures. Rogue Wave was all I listened to on the long flights to California, and it made the flights seem like nothing. Check out the fitting “California”, off of 2005’s Descended Like Vultures, and the Daytrotter Session of their beautiful single, “Lake Michigan”. How these guys aren’t considered as in the upper echelon of the music world is beyond me.
While I’m at it, listen to their cover of Buddy Holly’s classic (and one of my all-time favorite songs), “Everyday”. The gang from Oakland goes in a different direction with the song, yet it’s similar enough to still enjoy.
