We’re working on getting all of our remodeling done this week, so we apologize for the slowing in posting and for any technical issues coming up in the next few days. Just because we’re coming up with a pretty new site for you all, it doesn’t mean we aren’t still listening to heady jams. Check out another flawless Aeroplane remix, this time of new Melbourne-based Gypsy & the Cat‘s “The Piper’s Song.” Go ahead, try to get that chorus out of your head. I dare you.

We Can’t Fly

July 1, 2010

You know what doesn’t make sense? When a band called Aeroplane names a song “We Can’t Fly.” You know what makes a lot of sense? The fact that the Belgian duo that brought us the amazing remix of Friendly Fires’ “Paris” made yet another jam, this time an original. “We Can’t Fly” has all the makings of the blissed out summer jam, from the reggae-esque guitar rhythm to the smooth synths. Grab a cold beer and a babe and hit the beach, and let Aeroplane be your guide.

Three Degrees of Remix – Vampire Weekend, Lykke Li, Friendly Fires

October 29, 2008

You may have noticed that I’ve never posted on Lykke Li here on ATG before. Please understand that this is in no way an indictment on the Swedish starlet but rather there are a few bands or musicians that get huge, and for some completely unknown reason I never make an effort to get into them (see: Tapes’n’Tapes, The Ting Tings, and, up until recently, Hot Chip and Lykke Li). After hearing her awesome live cover of Vampire Weekend’s “Cape Cod Kwassa Kwassa”, I figured a more thorough listen was in order, so I headed over to hype machine to find some more tracks (I mean I went to a record store and legally purchased her album). What I found there was not more Lykke Li material, but rather a delightful cover of her hit, “I’m Good I’m Gone” by none other than newcomers (and ATG favorites) Friendly Fires. In my mind, these guys can do no wrong, so naturally, I instantly fell in love with the cover. So now my iTunes is stocked with two more songs I love. I head over to Neon Gold’s blog to see what my friend Derek has got for me these days, and what do I see but a remix of Friendly Fires’ “Paris”, courtesy of suddenly-sought-after Belgian remixers Aeroplane. So after playing the six three degrees of separation game, I am left with three quality new songs to enjoy. And because I wield the power here (see: pay for hosting), now you do too. Enjoy.
