[TWO FACED] Top 24 Indie/AltRock – Top 24 EDM/House (*including Spotify Playlists)


Instead of typing out every single detail about these songs like I usually do I decided that it would be easier for you and me to just simplify things a little….

I’ve put together two TOP 24 track lists of both Indie/AltRock/Chillwave and EDM/House.

They are set up in SoundCloud sets so it’s all in one music player, and some will have down arrows for downloading. AND…I made Spotify playlists for those of you that use Spotify (keep in mind not all of the songs are on Spotify yet).

Since it’s been a while I’m trying to give you what I think is great music by being super selective. I took each list from about 50 tracks (from the last 2 months) to 24 each, sooo in my opinion these are the best of the best.

After each list I picked ONE track that I think is the best, so don’t forget to check those out! And I have a little surprise for you at the very end…

FIRST UP: Indie/AltRock/Chillwave – TOP TRACKS

#1 Track: KO KO – Float

SPOTIFY PLAYLIST:

NEXT: EDM/House/Dance – TOP TRACKS

#1 Track: CAZZETTE – Beam Me Up (Kill Mode)

SPOTIFY PLAYLIST:

BONUS:
So this little nugget is from the last 15 minutes of Swedish House Mafia’s legendary set in Creamfields 2010. The entire set is amazing, but this mix gives me the ultimate goosebumps.

[UNIQUE COVERS] Indie Rock Covers of M83, Justice, Telepopmusik, Swedish House Mafia, MGMT

Image

So I’ve stumbled upon some great covers lately and then I realized that over my music discovery days I’ve actually accumulated a number of great covers. Not just ordinary covers though. Covers of singles from electronic artists like M83 and Swedish House Mafia. These are the types of artists most bands are not so keen to do covers for, because the instrumentals are sometimes too difficult to match. However, I think these covers really do their original owners some great justice!

So check em’ out and let me know what you think!

Midnight City – M83 (Cover by: Trails and Ways)

Midnight City – M83 (Cover by: The Knocks ft. Mandy Lee)

One – Swedish House Mafia (Cover by: Foals)

Breathe – Telepopmusik (Cover by: New Navy)

D.A.N.C.E. – Justice (Cover by: Hawa)

Kids – MGMT (Cover by: The Kooks)

Titanium – David Guetta ft. Sia (Cover by Collin McLoughlin)

Hope you enjoyed the tunes! Make sure to check out my next post!

You’ve got the beer, the American flag button down, the jorts, the fireworks, and the friends. Now let’s make your 4th of July week complete with some NEW TUNES! Today I bring you some classics with a new twist and some brand spankin new stuff, so listen up and GOD BLESS AMERICA!

The first set of wavelengths I bring you is the classic Kanye West record, American Boy ft. Estelle, re-booted by Kill the Noise. The second is a re-boot from LAZRtag. Not a bad way to start:

The next ones are from a guy named Kastra out of New Jersey. He’s doing some original mixes, mash-ups, and re-boots. The first is one of my favorites, One Illmerica, taking SHM’s ‘One’ and Wolfgang Gartner’s ‘Illmerica’ together. They work perfect together. Second is an original mix called ‘American Sex’….thought that was fitting for this post.

{INDIE/ALT} M83, Grouplove, Miike Snow, Naked and Famous, Young the Giant, and +

I’ve been away from the music blog for a while and instead of going all electro/house music on my first post back I thought I’d try my indie and alternative rock roots for a change. I have to say I have kind of forgotten about them for a while, but while I was on the road with the opportunity to listen to everything and anything I have re-established my love for this genre. Sirius-XM radio is truly God’s gift to traveling music nomads. Plus, these tunes fit the mood of the season more so anyways. So here are just a few of my favorite tunes from the road:

Of Monsters and Men – Little Talks

Atlas Genius – Trojans

Young the Giant – Cough Syrup

The Naked and Famous – Punching In a Dream

Grouplove – Tongue Tied

Miike Snow – Devil’s Work

M83 – Midnight City

Angus and Julia Stone – Big Jet Plane (Stern* Disco Edit)

{MUSIC MONDAY!!} Foster the People, Fitz and the Tantrums, Fat Boy Slim vs. Jefferson Airplane

Here are some other good tunes for you guys to listen to too! HAPPY MUSIC MONDAY!

Foster The People – Pumped Up Kicks (RLYNX Remix)

Fitz and the Tantrums – Moneygrabber

Lobsterdust – Somebody To Praise (Fatboy Slim VS Jefferson Airplane)

{SUMMER CATCHUP} More SHM,Chiddy Bang,Beatles,Mike Posner + MORE


Happy Summer Everyone!! Sorry it’s been a while since I’ve put anything up. Hope you all like the blog so far and I promise there will be more to come this summer so you can all fill your iPods with great tunes! We are on the brink of the BIG Summer Releases, so right not I’ve just been picking up some good remixes and indie songs. So far we’ve seen Foster the People release their album with hit songs like “Houdini” and “Pumped Up Kicks” and Death Cab for Cutie (which I’m not a huge of fan anyways).

As most of you can probably already tell this is going to be a great summer for music!! In the near future I am expecting a Coldplay album release, another Black Eyed Peas album, Lil Wayne, and more. Not to mention the big hype all the music festivals are getting this summer.

But for now….enjoy some of these summer tunes:

Save The World Tonight – Swedish House Mafia (Remixes)

Chiddy Bang – Always (On My Grizzly)….(SWELLY ALERT!!!!)

Some Chill Electro….Sun (Pyramid Remix) – Caribou

iNdIe…..Cold Feet – Lost Lander

Mike Posner – The Scientist (Coldplay cover)

Come Together – The Beatles (David Starfire Remix)

Hope you enjoy it!!
