Hot Jam of the Day (02.21.13): Bloc Party, “Truth” (Jerome LOL Remix)

Posted on by TP1.COM in Hot Jam of the Day | Comments Off on Hot Jam of the Day (02.21.13): Bloc Party, “Truth” (Jerome LOL Remix)

Bloc Party “Truth” (Jerome LOL Remix) Truth EP (out  When it comes to nailing a feeling, LA-based producer Jerome LOL never seems to need more than a line. From the now-defunct LOL Boys’ stunning “Changes” (“Things wont change until we do”) to his unfuckwitable remix of The-Dream’s “Can’t Wait to Hate You” demo (“Today I’m gonna get over you”), his work offers a stark contrast to the maximalism of much of his contemporaries. The former LOL Boy strikes again with his …

Posted on by TP1.COM in Download This Shit | Comments Off on Download this Shit: Araabmuzik, For Professional Use Only

Araabmuzik For Professional Use Only Self-Released If you haven’t heard Abraham “Araabmuzik” Orellana’s music, it’s probably best described somewhere between “total sonic onslaught” and “nuclear scud attack.” While Professional Use Only is teaming with the Rhode Island-native’s signature maximalism, there are ample moments of respite, usually in the form of tasteful, EDM vocal hooks. As the name suggests, this is really just a glimpse into his sensational live show, which I was lucky enough to take in late last year. First timers might be …

Disclosure x AlunaGeorge: “White Noise” Rising Brits, Disclosure & AlunaGeorge, treat us to some of the fiercest dude-dancing-by-himself action since Kevin Bacon tore up that factory.

Hot Jam of the Day (02.20.13): London Grammar, “Metal & Dust”

Posted on by TP1.COM in Featured, Hot Jam of the Day | Comments Off on Hot Jam of the Day (02.20.13): London Grammar, “Metal & Dust”

London Grammar “Metal & Dust” Metal & Dust / Hey Now 7″ (out 02/25 on Metal & Dust) I approached young London trio, London Grammar, with quite a bit of apprehension after their admitedly very impressive debut single, “Hey Now,” hit late last year. Simply put, they felt a little too good to be true. Their sound and image seemed a little too fully realized for such a young band, and as we learned from our dear friend Señorita Del Rey, …

Hot Jam of the Day (02.19.13): Rhye, “Open” (Ryan Hemsworth Remix)

Posted on by TP1.COM in Hot Jam of the Day | Comments Off on Hot Jam of the Day (02.19.13): Rhye, “Open” (Ryan Hemsworth Remix)

Rhye “Open” (Ryan Hemsworth) The original will appear on Rhye’s Woman (due out 3/5 on Loma Vista) There are some songs that you know you love before you even hear it. I’ve been moderately obsessed with the Sade-recalling duo, formed by Canadian producer Mike Milosh and Robin Hannibal of soulful Danish group Quadron, and everything Canadian producer Ryan Hemsworth turns to solid, body-rockin’, Trinidad-James-level gold. Sure enough, Hemsworth adds his signature deft touch to the spellbinding, seductive original, resulting in a re-imagination that feels new …

Hot Jam of the Week (02.16.13): Shy Girls, “Under Attack”

Posted on by TP1.COM in Hot Jam of the Day | Comments Off on Hot Jam of the Week (02.16.13): Shy Girls, “Under Attack”

Shy Girls “Under Attack” From Upcoming Debut LP This luscious, expansive slow jam from Portland septet Shy Girls is guaranteed to make you feel feelings — even if they aren’t positive ones. You can scoff at 80’s guitar tone, roll your eyes at vocalist Dan Vidmar’s charmin-smooth falsetto, or legitimately LOL at the opulent, Hornsbyish sax solo, but the seductive “Under Attack” will make you feel something, which is, of course, the whole point of pop music. It certainly makes me feel something. …

Hot Jam of the Day (02.18.13): CHVRCHES, “Recover” (CID RIM Remix)

Posted on by TP1.COM in Hot Jam of the Day | Comments Off on Hot Jam of the Day (02.18.13): CHVRCHES, “Recover” (CID RIM Remix)

CHVRCHES “Recover” Recover EP (out March 25 on Virgin) Last year, likely Scottish synth-pop trio, CHVRCHES (pronounced “Churches”), parlayed a pair of delicious, blogosphere-wankfest-inducing singles (“Lies” & “The Mother We Share”) into a coveted spot on BBC’s Sound of 2013 shortlist. Their upcoming debut’s lead single, “Recover,” is bristling with the virility and directness of their past successes, and while the original is brilliant, this remix from UK veteran, CID RIM, stretches it to new heights with a mind-bending barrage of synth …

Hot Jam of the Day (02.14.13): Tyler, The Creator, “Domo 23”

Posted on by TP1.COM in Hot Jam of the Day | Comments Off on Hot Jam of the Day (02.14.13): Tyler, The Creator, “Domo 23”

Tyler, The Creator “Domo 23” WOLF (out April 2 on Odd Future Records) 5 reasons to care about Odd Future mainman Tyler, The Creator’s new song and video. 1. That it caused “Fookie Bookie” to trend on Twitter. 2. That Domo is doing the fat dude in a pool thing by wearing a t-shirt in a wrestling ring. 3. Surprise Frank Ocean at the end! Even a little Frank is better than no Frank at all. 4. The realization that …

Hot Jam of the Day (02.13.13): James Blake, “Retrograde”

Posted on by TP1.COM in Featured, Hot Jam of the Day | Comments Off on Hot Jam of the Day (02.13.13): James Blake, “Retrograde”

James Blake “Retrograde” Overgrown (out April 1 on Polydor) I feel pretty comfortable writing about most tracks after listening to them three or four times, but James Blake’s majestic new single is not “most tracks.” After letting it sink in for about a week, I feel comfortable calling this his most spellbinding original work (ie, not counting his perfect cover of Joni Mitchell’s “A Case of You”) since the genre-defining title track from his seminal 2010 EP, CMYK.  This, of course, includes …

Hot Jam of the Day (02.11.13): Giraffage, “All That Matters”

Posted on by TP1.COM in Hot Jam of the Day | Comments Off on Hot Jam of the Day (02.11.13): Giraffage, “All That Matters”

Giraffage “All That Matters” Needs (out now on Alpha Pup Records) San Francisco-based, sample-driven producer Charlie Yin described his moody, brilliant new LP, Needs, as an album he created while going through some of his best and worst times of his life. While I don’t know the album’s real backstory, emotionalism is all over its exquisitely crafted tracks. By picking vocal samples that are simultaneously mournful and sensual, Yin creates an album that is an adept soundtrack for both mourning lost love and making …
