I love Angel Haze. She is the fiercest thing in rap right now. There’s been all the hype lately about Azealia Banks, but while “212” is one of the freshest things to hit hip-hop in a while, Banks lacks the consistence in quality you get from Angel Haze. 

Not that there’s any reason to compare them, other than: if you like “212” check this track out…or “A Tribe Called Red” or “New York” or any of her songs, because she gets it DONE.

Not only that, she can sing too. 

Check out this acoustic version of the same song, Battle Cry.

Angel Haze ft Sia - Battle Cry (MK Remix) 

MK is back with his trademark bass heavy beats, perfect for the heavy rhymes of Angel Haze

Washington, D.C. producer Alex Young first stormed on to my radar last year with his brilliant house remix of The Neighbourhood’s Sweater Weather, a flip which he named SWTRWTHR. Today, he offers up a remix of Aussie synthpop band Miami Horror’s Real Slow, giving the jam some wonderful summer vibes and arresting, luminous synths. Alex Young is currently working on his debut EP, and I’m eager to hear it. For now, let’s revisit SWTRWTHR again below, because I’m still stuck on that ish. Amazing.

I love that crazy rest with the cheer around 4:00. Even the fade out is sexy and subtle.

Alright, so we’ve gone through our fair share of remixes of Lana Del Rey’s ubiquitous, well loved single West Coast, off her upcoming album Ultraviolence. They’ve all been stellar, giving us all kinds of takes on the beautiful tune. We’ve heard remixes by Dan Auerbach himself (The Black Keys), GRADES, Hippie Sabotage, and even the elusive Four Tet. Add to the list of excellent remixes this new one by Vancover/Los Angeles (hey, WEST COAST!) producer STINT, aka Ajay Bhattacharyya. He gives West Coast a laid back, carefree atmosphere fleshed out with terrific horns and charismatic whistles. How many more amazing remixes are we going to hear of West Coast? I don’t know, nor would I mind if they keep coming out of the woodwork, since they’re all sounding so dang good.

Oh those whistles. So classy, like Mr Rogers is on back up.

This week on NPR’s First Listen you can preview the whole new Nikki Nack album from tUnE-yArDs.

This is my second-favorite remix of Lorde’s big teen hit “Royals”. My top pick will be on the forthcoming Best Indie Dance Tracks of 2031 list.

Wild Boyz is still offering a free download of this track, and you don’t even have to like their Facebook to get it. Very 2006, Wild Boyz!…and I mean that as a compliment.

Just found out from earmilk.com that Wild Boyz! are based out of San Francisco. W00t.

Hudson Taylor - Battles

This wasn’t one of those dance-y electro songs I generally warm up to right away. It’s a folksy number, and it generally takes me longer to get cozy with that type. But damn sometimes it is worth the wait for my brain to catch up and notice how good something is. Been listening to this song all month, and it suddenly grabbed me and then I had to share it with you. “Battles” has a lot of energy, and intensity, and he beating that guitar as hard as the throb of any bass drum.

I will lift her love and I’ll break your spirit,
I will dig a hole and I’ll throw you in it,
only time will tell if we’re all just cynics on the run.
if we’re all just cynics come undone.

Put this on your Fixin-to-fight-a-duel playlist.

Count me on the list of hardcore fans.

Apparently Alexis Krauss’s work ethic as a teacher still haunts her because her band Sleigh Bells is putting out albums at the rate of a person accustomed to grading eighty homework assignments a week. Four albums in four years. I thought they would take a break after releasing a new album barely a year after their breakout hit Treats.

But now I hear “You Don’t Get Me Twice” and I realize they’re still hard at work. I think this song is better than anything off their previous album Reign of Terror.

This one will be called Bitter Rivals. I’m looking forward to hearing more of this second wind driving this duos fantastic output.
