Local Natives’ Gorilla Manor is amazing. Let me know if that requires any further explanation. The latest from the L.A. indie outfit is a video for my favorite track off the album, “Who Knows, Who Cares.” The video provides some feel-good visuals for the feel-good track as the band and friends frolic in the sunny countryside. Would have been nice if this was released a couple months ago though — rest in peace summer. If you were lucky enough to get tickets, make sure to check out Local Natives at their sold-out 9:30 Club show tonight.

This Saturday ATG will be teaming up with Cantora Records and The Mill to throw a rager of epic proportions at Trinity College in Hartford, CT. The Knocks, who were recently featured in NME‘s “20 Hottest Producers Right Now”, will be headlining the show and should bring down the house with an absolutely killer live set (which I was fortunate enough to witness for the first time a few weeks ago). Support will be provided by the incredibly talented Emil & Friends and ATG favorite We Are Trees. Exclusive ATG Koozies may or may not be provided.
MP3: The Knocks – “Make It Better”

MP3 (MIX): B-Roc Of The Knocks – “THE TRANSPLANT II”

At first I thought UK producer Labrinth was all about keepin’ it real – boy was I wrong. Labrinth is all about taking it to the next level (Phil Dunphy style). His latest remix of Jessie J’s up coming single “Do It Like A Dude” is an absolute jam and one of my favorite remixes of the year.

Remember a few years ago when The Wombats released “Moving To New York” and it was literally on everyone’s ipod? And it was so appropriate because your BEST friend was actually moving to New York? Well fast forward to 2010, insert Tokyo, remove New York, and boom – The Wombats’ new single. Although painfully formulaic, “Tokyo (Vampires & Wolves)” is a pop-gem that should satisfy fans another two to three years. Oh, and Grum took care of the 80’s inspired rage-remix.

No better way to start off the week than with a blissful remix from DC’s Dmerit (Outputmessage + Micah Vellian). The electro-duo mold The Gay Blades guitar-driven single “Try To Understand”, adding a refreshing taste of disco-pop. Been cruising to this tune all week.

Beat-smith Nero adds his signature touch to Plan B’s new single “The Recluse”, dropping an absolutely massive beat at the 1:09 mark. Should serve as a decent remedy for those of us who are suffering from the brutal Redskins’ loss last night.

I know I’m a little late on this one, but Penguin Prison remixes get me all kinds of excited. His latest effort puts Kylie’s new single “Get Outta My Way” to shame, adding grooving guitar riffs and shimmering synth to the disco-pop hit.

In an effort to make the most out of their massively successful debut album, Neon Indian will be releasing a deluxe edition of Psychic Chasms. Accompanying the re-vamped full-length will be Mind Ctrl: Psychic Chasms Possessed, a bonus disc comprised of nine high-profile remixes and covers. Anoraak was fortunate enough to be included on this exclusive disc and did not let the opportunity go to waste, delivering a remarkable remix of “9 Psychic Chasms”. Looking forward to big things from the Parisian producer in 2011.

It’s only appropriate that I start off my second week at ATG with a solid R Kelly remix. Portland’s Copy (Marius Libman) adds his electro-charm to “Ignition”, taking the soulful hit to a new level. Stay tuned for Copy’s new album Hard Dreams.
Marius, if you’re interested, I would absolutely love to commision you to do a “Real Talk” remix.

What better way to start off the weekend than with two first-class remixes courtesy of Penguin Prison and Monarchy. Both artists add a little somethin-somethin to Jamiroquai’s latest single “White Knuckle Ride”, transforming the dancefloor jam into, well, two equally awesome dancefloor jams. “White Knuckle Ride” will be included on Jamiroquai’s upcoming full-length Rock Dust Light Star, due out this November via Mercury Records.
