Inc. - The Place / 5 Days

Two new big tunes from LA group, Inc. Don't know much about these guys aside from their EP, with the excellent "Swear" that dropped last year. Looking forward to their upcoming full LP (which I believe these cuts are from) to drop early next year.

Mixed and Remixed Well

Recently digging two tracks that have gorgeous originals and remixes that both stand alone as their own unique tracks.
The first one is Jessie Ware's Running (which we already posted about a few months back)

Original Remix (by Disclosure)

The second is Chances by Alpines

Original Remix (by Cyril Hahn)
To whoever says there is no good music being released these days, well, I just have no words for you. I'm too busy being overwhelmed by all the incredible talent out there. Open up ya ears.

Orange Juice - Rip It Up


Ok, so I know I come late with tracks but it's usually by months, not decades. So I apologize in advance, but I just heard this genius track on the great Steve Lamacq's BBC6 show (Google this guy/this show, he's legend). Bowie vectors, PiL vectors, good disco/no wave/post-punkness. Listen up folks!

Jack White - Love Interruption

can't stop listening to this new Jack White album. It's so fantastic. Massive shots out to the gorgeous and talented Grammy-nominated songstress Ruby Amanfu (Ghana REPRESENT!) who does co-vocals with Jack on this track and on the worldwide Blunderbuss tour. Holler at this album and also take time out of your life to watch the AmEx unstaged concert video directed by and featuring Gary Oldman (yes, THE Gary Oldman!)

The Revisit - Orbital: Halcyon (and on and on)

I can only begin to tell you how HUGE Orbital's album Orbital 2 was to me in my formative years. I got this album back in the dark ages when you couldn't go online and preview NOTHING, I read about this album in something like Spin magazine and went down to my local cassette tape-walla and bought it based on that written description and proceeded to play it continuously day and night because I had never heard anything so amazing in all my 13 years on this blue marble.

Halcyon (And On And On) was the monster jam from this album and I swear to GOD, just this morning I was thinking about this album and then I come stumbling across this NPR profile of Orbital and the 90's rave resurgence and anyway....let's (re)visit this track people. Ahhhhh, sweet memories!

Lil B "Im Focused Man"



The Based God (Lil B) has grown on me over the last couple of months. He is uber prolific and with his new mixtape , The Basedprint 2, he hits a nice stride of soulful beats and mostly nice stream of consciousness flows. Plus he rhymes over a Donut... Really can't hate on that at all.

Stream/ DL the whole tape here

Camille's Best of 2011 - Part 1 : Favorite Albums

I know I am WILDLY late on this one, but hey I've been busy.

2011 was a crazy busy year so I think I had a hard time keeping up with music, so the brevity of my list doesn't mean that last year was a sub-par for me musically, just that it took a lot for a track or an album to bubble up for me. Here is what made the cut.

Favorite Albums

1) SARS - Perspektiva
Serbian band that makes gorgeous, thoughtful music that is a far cry from a lot of the uninspired dance music and hits of the 90s that clog up the radio in Balkans....and they keep giving it away for free!



2) Little Dragon - Ritual Union
What can I say? The kids got back on form and did it better than they ever have before. So many jams on this album.


3) Drive soundtrack
Hot movie but it wouldn't have been have as good without this gorgeous soundtrack


4) Toro y Moi - Underneath the Pine
Every other shop I walked into seemed to be bumping this album but it always sounded fresh.


Most Disappointing Album of the Year
Joker - Tron



Ahhhhh man, we waited SO long and had such HIGH hopes!I guess you musta just cracked under the pressure. That said, I do love this Goldie remix...then again, Goldie can almost do no wrong in my mind.
