Now I'm dreaming someone would swiftly come and kidnap me

lets just have some music yeah?

Datsik - Southpaw
My favorite new Dubstep song of the month. Datsik is just too sick. I think the sample used is from N.W.A and it works with the track sooo well. I've already worked out exactly where I'm dropping this in my next mix, it's just a mental track. Sounds proper cut up too, but definitely in a good way.

Passion Pit - The Reeling (Bubblegum Sci Fi Remix)
Oh god, we're so skins right now. Yes I know this song was on a advert for skins, but fuck me what a tune! Reasonably heavy electro mix of a good track by the genius that is passion pit. Although the remixers do have quite a stupid name. Still a track and a half though.

Late Of The Pier - Best In The Class
Oh Fuck yes. LOTP I've missed you, thank you for coming back with a banger. If this is your last track then I'm glad you went out on a bang. This may be my favorite track they've done, including the whole of fantasy black channel. Although I advise against watching the video, especially after beer or a meal. It's quite light for them, no where near as heavy as some of the album or Blueberry, but daaaamn it's a goodn. Proper dancy electroy whatever-the-hell-else-y.

Boys Noize - Jeffer (Para One Remix)
Okay Give this one a chance. I know the it sounds like shit for the first minute but after that it turns into a nice big electro house song. And it is made by the genius that is boys noize so of course it features random blips and beeps but para one shoved a nice beat over the top. Oh god, I've grown a fondness for house music. Someone stop me before I start wearing pink polo shirts with the collar up.

Fake Blood - Mars (Jack Beats Remix)
I've fallen in love with Fake Blood recently, my cousin recommended them to me. Mars is an absolute banggggggeerrrrrrr but good old Jack Beats mashes it up quite nicely. I guess it's sort of electro fidget? a bit too electronic to be dubstep, a bit too bass heavy to be electro. To be honest, Jack Beats deserves his own genre, no one else makes music quite like them.Anyway.

I've got to remember to post more regularly, I'll try to do another full post this week sometime. If I can't then soz.

There is nothing left here to worry about.

Fucksake, now I'm gonna spend the rest of the night trawling through blog posts and shitty gig videos trying to find any news on the new foals album.

-EDIT- Just realised it's really hard to see the image above, sorry should have made it bigger. It's from Foals facebook page and says "Total Life Forever May 10th&New Shows!". I'm exxxxxxcited :D

-RE-EDIT- Just found this on Foals Blog, posted 14 minutes ago. "hey everyone! we have some good news.
// we can finally announce that our second album, TOTAL LIFE FOREVER will be released on May 10th, MMX.

// in addition something pretty, pretty, pretty good will be happening on the airwaves this coming Monday.

// lots more news to come.
it's good to be back.
big love
Yannis"
I'm so excited I dropped my tea mug. FUCK YES.

On an unrelated note, chchchcheck out this song by Crystal Fighters



Absolute fucking tune. I know it's old but I've fallen in love with it.

All night, out on the run.

New favorite band of the week.
Magic Wands
I would write about one specific song of theirs but they all sound so good! I actually might go see them in the summer. The remixes of their songs are just as good as the originals, if not better. I would post the XX remix of Warrior, but then Mel would just fall in love with me. So this will do. I would post the original of this song but I can't find it on youtube. I'll get it up at some point.

Apologies for not posting more recently, It's been a odd week.

R.I.P. LOTP



ByeBye late of the pier. I'll miss you and your strange sounds.

New blog

ohai, I went and made a new blog so I didn't ruin this one with non-musical things.
http://natter-matters.blogspot.com/
made purely for when I can't think of any music and want to write random shit.
check it out yeah?
kthnx,bye.

You sit all alone, with your thoughts, getting stoned, just waiting for some peace to come.

I have literally not said a word to anyone all day. vocally I mean.I don't know why but I'm in a shit mood. well actually I do know why but I can't sort it until I talk to some people. so fuck it, lets ignore life and listen to music

The Shins - Split Needles (Alt. Version)
The shins are a fairly mediocre band who somehow had an epicly good single (New slang). The rest of their stuff isn't actually that great but this version of one of their songs is quite good. It's not a remix, just the same as another song on their album sorta sped up and made to sound better. For some reason reminds me of Foals but with more bass.
Link

La Roux - I'm Not Your Toy ( Nero Remix)
It's Nero. It's La roux. You just know it'll be good. Sounds a lot like their Drake remix but fuckit, it's still a tune and a half. Can't be fuuuuucked to write anymore.
Link

Drake, Kanye West, Lil Wayne, Eminem - Forever (Steve Aoki Remix)
Hm, mr aoki what have you done here. It's a odd remix. I mean I like it, but I have no idea how to define it. Fidget-rap-house? yeah that should do. Anyway, everyone should already know the original to this song but this remix is quite good. Not as good as I'd expect from Steve Aoki, but still better that most. Although his speeding up/ slowing down of the rapping is kinda irritating.
Link

N.A.S.A (ft. Spank Rock, Santogold, Nick Zinner & M.I.A.) - Watchadoin?
OldOldOld tune, but still a good one. I have the vinyl of it somewhere, sounds like a beast through good headphones. Plus the fact that it has 3 massssive artists featured in it ( each of which I love) makes it just that bit cooler. Also has literally the most trippy video I have ever seen. I think it may have hypnotised me.

Monsters Of Folk - Map Of The World
Oh lawdy, yes it is time to admit my secret like for abit of folk music. Just the extremely good stuff like this mind. Saw this bands name on some guys shirt at a party on friday night and wrote it on my hand. Fucking glad I did, this is a great song. I've just listened to it on repeat for the last 20mins. and I've just downloaded the album, it looks like a beast.
Link

Still haven't talked to the people I need to, this is irritating now. hopefully Monsters Of Folk album will cheer me up/Calm me down.
Sleeeeeeptime.

3 Feb 2010

I rock it with ill technique.

I feel like death frozen, warmed up in a microwave then chucked into a cold pond to freeze again. Fucking illnesses. And no one even knows what it is so I'm just popping lemsips, nurofen and paracetamol to try and make myself semi-alright so I can go to college and go out on Saturday.
Although one plus side to me being off college is that I have been on the comp a lot looking at music and shizzz. Should probably take this time to catch up on coursework and essays. But that's never gonna happen. Music Time!

Steve Aoki Ft. [[[Zuper Blahq]]] - I'm In The House
Tune for the week/month. or at least for until mr.Aoki releases that album. It's exactly what you'd expect from Steve Aoki; a nice fat slice of electro nonsense with bits of all the best artists shoved in. The drums from Mstrkrft, the beat from Crookers, the bleeps from Boys Noize and so on. Oh and [[[Zuper Blahq]]] is Will.I.Am from The black eyed peas under a different and slightly annoying name. But damn that man can rap!

MSTRKRFT - Bounce (The Bloody Beetroots Remix)
I know that mstrkrft are awesome, but I'm a little ashamed to like the original of this song. It just sounds so corny. "All I do is party ha ha ha ha" repeated about 10 times. That is pretty much it. But at least TBB have gotten rid of that and just turned it into a nice fat piece of electronic goodness. Mmmmm makes you feel warm inside.

-[The rest of this post was made on Sunday. And yes I managed to drag myself out of bed to go to Mr. Hatchwells party, which was goooood. I also invented a new game; "Watching people on mcat doing quite odd things". Literally one of the most fun things I've ever done.]

Chiddy Bang - Opposite Of Adults
I'm preempting that this will become a massively overplayed, used in adverts and sung in the xfactor/Britain's got talent/ some other pointless TV show. But until then lets just enjoy it because it's an absolute fucking tune. It's a grime/rap song which uses the backing beat from MGMT's 'Kids' but makes it so much better! I know there's been a time gap from the start of this post until now, but this song has already taken Steve Aoki's place as Tune of the Week/Month. If you don't click this link you don't deserve ears.

Drake ft. Kanye West ,Lil Wayne and Eminem - Forever/ (Nero Remix)
Now I realise I might be a couple of months late on this one. Which is why I included the Nero remix, to bring it up to date. The original is a bangerrr and I never knew I could enjoy a song that has Kanye West in so much. But something about the nero remix just makes it sounds so much better! It's like Skreams mix of 'In For The Kill'. It's just simplified, plain and quiet but it sounds ridiculously good.
Link -Original
Link -Nero Rmx

Dubba Johnny - Home
I've posted about Dubba Johnny before, can't remember what song it was atm. Anyway UKFDubstep is like the biggest Dubstep promoter on Youtube and they're now posting about this song so Dubba Johnny is getting a fuckload of new fans (Trying to stop myself being a terrible hipster and bragging about how I liked them first..). And good for them! They're nice guys and they're fucking good at what they do. Even though this track sounds like some terrible eurotechno trash at the start, it has a sweeet drop and turns ,subtly, into a massive dubstep tune.

Right that'll do for now. College tomorrow, 6.30 start and I have yet to start one of my many many many essays. Fuck it.
Night.
