Little Dragon : ‘Cat Rider’ (Poolside remix) on a Tuesday

I could do with some good news today.  Unfortunately, my News apps have not come through for me.  So, I’ve had to turn to my Soundcloud stream for some relief and it completely delivered with this amazing Poolside remix of a Little Dragon track.  It’s oh so chill.

This is the second ace remix I’ve posted by them – the other being their flawless interpretation of Black Sabbath’s ‘Planet Caravan’.  If you haven’t heard it yet, do check it out. It compliments today’s post perfectly.

Better Than Ezra : ‘Normal Town’ (Remix) on a Monday

I remember back in the 90’s, original music soundtracks were the big thing. Popular artists would write original songs just for a particular movie, and they would end up being as important as the film itself.

In one of those rare occurrances, I ended up watching ‘An American Werewolf in Paris’ only after listening to the soundtrack, instead of the other way around. Yup, it was that good, and remains one of my favourite OSTs to this day.  My favourite track from the album?  Click below.

I was a big fan of Better Than Ezra back in high school, but this was one of the first really tight remixes I had ever heard of a Rock/Alternative song. Little did I know that this would become the trend many years later.

Thom Yorke : ‘Atoms for Peace’ on a Sunday

In continuation of my excitement for the new Thom Yorke album, here is another example of why I respect the man’s music and talent. ‘Atoms for Peace’ consists of a simple electronic beat and a subtle guitar lead at the end of the track.  That’s it.  Yet it remains one of my favourite songs by Thom Yorke, simply because of the vocals.  They completely bring the song to life. He could sing this without any music in the background, and it would probably sound just as beautiful.

SOUND AND VISION – BECK

It’s no secret that I love David Bowie and sound and vision s one of my favourite Bowie tracks.  When I heard that another artist I admire ‘Beck’ had done a version of this song with an orchestra setup, I ran to a quiet corner in the office, puled out my headphones, plugged them into my mobile and started dancing.

Thom Yorke : ‘Hearing Damage’ on a Saturday

It’s no secret that we here at Track Drops are massive fans of Radiohead and Thom Yorke.  So, it goes without saying that today is a big day for music, because Thom Yorke just dropped his new solo album on the online universe. And in pure Thom Yorke fashion, no one knew it was coming until it was actually released.  Talk about instant gratification!

My copy is downloaded, and I can barely contain my excitement. It’s going to be an interesting next week.

In the mean time, here is one of my favourite tracks by the music shaman, released on one of the (believe it or not) Twilight original soundtracks.

Vance Joy : ‘Mess is Mine’

THIS WEEK’S GUEST POSTS by Ben Duquette:

“Ironic that a writer has such a hard time writing about himself. My name is Ben, I’m a copywriter in Montreal for 3 years now and currently working at Bleublancrouge. If I had to describe me, I’d say I’m a fighter, a lover, and a believer.” 


 

Now if only someone could clean up my mess.

You+Me : ‘Break the Cycle’

I’ve always been a fan of Dallas Green, whether it was through his dark and rebellious adolescence with Alexisonfire, or wait…was it my dark and rebellious adolesence? Anyhow, with City & Colour, he perfected his craft, his voice and now, he’s taking on a project with P!nk. I must admit I was doubtful at first, but it actually turned out good. Not great, but good. The lyrics could be less obvious.
