The Beatles’ Eleanor Rigby (4centers Remixxx)

A tribute to John Lennon

Last night I went to First Avenue in Minneapolis and saw a group cover John Lennon for the memorial of his death 30 years ago. It was a little more lively than I thought a bunch of 60 year olds would be, but it was a hell of a time.

So I decided to do a little tribute myself by collecting the best Mixes & Mashes of his work with The Beatles, as well as his solo work. Until that’s complete, here’s one of the best dubstep remixes I’ve ever heard, Beatles or otherwise […]

Times Like These Acoustic by Foo Fighters

In need of an acoustic timeout.

I’ve been in need of a break from all the electronic I’ve been posting lately. So I thought a classic gone acoustic would do it right.

Foo Fighters’ acoustic version of “Times Like These”, at first, reminded me of Eddie Vedder’s Into the Wild soundtrack – the acoustic guitar reminds me of scenes of the wild now. But after the first few seconds Dave Grohl takes over with that soothing voice of his.

I’ve never been much of a Foo Fighters fan, or Nirvana for that matter (Pearl Jam fan), but this acoustic version […]

Lollipop That Juicy Pussy (Lil’ Wayne Rock Cover)

by Framing Hanley - Shorty wanna thug?

I first caught this a year back on The Current. It may be a couple years old, but it’s one of the most well done rock renditions of a hip-hop song.

I’m not one for post-grunge rock or Lil Wayne, for that matter, but Framing Hanley takes Lil Weezy’s original and turns it into a alt rock treat. I will say, however, the extensive amount of covers, remixes and mashups that artists have been doing with Lil Wayne’s originals have been putting his music in a better light.

If you’ve got any good hip-hop to rock covers, post ’em up!

A Whole Lotta Love for My Adidas

I had to touch back on Beat Torrent because their second album is suppose to be dropping soon (or was suppose to in October). Here’s a friendly reminder to get that shit out (I promise to promote)!

Short post, my typing has been temporarily handicapped :(

Stars & Stripes: The White Stripes Reimagined

Hip-Hop and Rock, together again.

Bare with me while I get this mashup obsession out of me (if I can).

My latest find is from an LA based mixer, Adrian Champion. Adrian’s idea of mashing up a few White Stripes beats with the top hip-hop MC’s of the last couple decades is a legendary move, but Adrian seems to make it a much bigger point than it actually is.

At the start of each track, he decides to plaster his name and a pretentious oxymoron over each track (sample shown here). We know it’s a legendary idea, but slapping it all over […]

Daily Routine (Phaseone Rmx) by Animal Collective

No idea what they're saying; then again who cares.

Remixes are startin to take over here. With all the musical resources I go through – Hypem/SoundCloud/etc – remixes and mashups are always toppin the charts.

Phaseone’s remix would be the most recent addition and it’s a damn fine one at that. I listened to the damn thing nearly a dozen times before I moved on to something else – I have a bad habit of listening to a song over and over until I kill it for everyone else.

Thanks to AK JIGGA for this one.

BT Live Set 2009 by BEAT TORRENT

THIS FUCKING ROCKS!

From The Beatles to Run DMC, these French fucks know how to mix up a rockin’ playlist. Just about every one of these RMX’s topped the original – yes, even The Beatles’s “Back in the USSR”.

Give my two favorite a listen and go to BEAT TORRENT’s bandcamp to check out the full LP. They’re also expected to release a new album by the end of November – I’m as giddy as a schoolgirl.

Psychotic Girl by The Black Keys (feat. Intuition)

"and I can't get lost in your world"

First heard Intuition on his song “Al Bundy” almost a year back. So when I heard he did an edit of The Black Key’s “Psychotic Girl”, I knew he’d cut up some nasty lines for this blues rock band.

“Psychotic Girl” gives the typical tale of a seemingly normal gal that shows her true colors when you’re least expecting it. Intuition’s thoughts go well with The Black Keys’ original vocals, especially against those back beat blues.

I would’ve liked Intuition’s flow a bit slower paced and better volumized (volumized), but he did a damn fine job at picking a song that was meant for him to lay some dirtay lines over.

Now off to listen to The Black Key’s discography :)

While My Guitar Gently Weeps by Carlos Santana

featuring India Arie & Yo-Yo Ma

I’ve heard quite a few Beatles cover songs before, but this one really does George Harrison’s original justice.

First hearing India Arie’s voice was a bit peculiar. I couldn’t picture her standing in, but after getting use to her voice with Santa’s guitar, it made for a perfect match.

I’ve only listened to a couple tracks off Santa’s newly released album, Guitar Heaven: The Greatest Guitar Classics of All Time, but his rendition of this classic takes it. You can’t beat a Beatle’s song redone by a master guitar player + beautiful vocals by India Arie – oh, and some damn good cello playin’.

Business Casual by Chromeo

"She says I'm not romantic, I saw she's too dramatic."

I actually just talked about Business Casual at Indie Shuffle, but I wanted to feature ’em here, their music is really hittin’ the spot.

Chromeo’s got this throwback 80’s coolnass, but with an electofunk vibe of today(ish). Their songs are catchy as hell with lyrics that’ll get hammered into your head for days (in a good way). Yea, they can be a little cheesy at times, but I think that’s what adds to their appeal.

I’ve been having a hell of time jamming to three of their songs – “Don’t Turn The Lights On” – which is featured in the Indie Shuffle article – “I Could Be Wrong” & […]
