[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.

Swedish House Mafia – 2 Million Ways [Axwell Remix] vs. Bittersweet Symphony vs. Tell Me Why

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

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!

[Indie/Alt Rock Overload] Feel Good Tunes for Your Feel Good Summer

Image

I think we’ve had enough of the electronic music for a little bit…so I figured it’s time to change it up a little. In the summer there is a time to rage, and a time to chill. We all know this.

Sometimes you just need that slower beat song that just makes you ‘feel good’. It’s that moment when a song comes on and you instantly become happy. For me it’s one of the most powerful things music can do for you. Music has the ability to completely change one’s mood. Especially when it is associated with an experience or image in your mind.

Some of you might have heard some of these bands and some you may have not. I try and keep up with as many new bands as I can, but it’s much harder than keeping up with the EDM scene, believe me.

So…sit back…chill…and relax to your summer:

Symptoms – Atlas Genius

Hollywood (feat. Penguin Prison) – RAC

This Head I Hold – Electric Guest

MY FAVORITE RIGHT NOW:
Venice – Lighthouse & The Whaler

Harvest Moon – Poolside (Neil Young cover aka: my dad would love this)

Nunca – Trails and Ways (another favorite!!!)

Take A Walk – Passion Pit (a classic)

Lakehouse – Of Monsters and Men (fitting for my summer)

Bushwick Blues – Delta Spirit

It’s Time – Imagine Dragons (wins the award for ‘Best Feel Good’)

Sweater Weather – The Neighbourhood

Lovers Carvings (Bruno Be & Eddie M Remix) – Bibio

Raconte-Moi Une Histoire – M83 (this could easily be the weirdest one, but I still like it)

And always saving the best for last:

Trembling Hands – The Temper Trap

Hope you enjoyed the songs!!
