Then again, there's nothing wrong with remixes

Had a pretty crazy, pretty overwhelming weekend at work (Opening Ceremony). If you know about the store you probably know why.. Came home a few hours ago to a bunch of 12 year olds screaming and running around on the street, must be some kind of holiday.

From Late of the Pier's Fantasy Black Channel.. give it 2 minutes and 25 seconds:
MP3: The Bears Are Coming (Emperor Machine Remix) - Late of the Pier (YSI)

From Bloc Party's Mercury. CSS remix is sweet, Herve kinda choppy:
MP3: Mercury (Herve Is In Disarray Remix) - Bloc Party (YSI)
MP3: Mercury (CSS Remix) - Bloc Party (YSI)

Ratatat's LP3 is great. Enjoy it especially because of Flynn and Mi Viejo in particular, reminds me of being on an island somewhere far, far away from New York.

MP3: Gipsy Threat - Ratatat (YSI)
MP3: Flynn - Ratatat (YSI)

A little something from Eric Prydz & Fred Falke, feelin' the whole 80's intro:
MP3: Pjanoo (Fred Falke Mix) - Eric Prydz (YSI)

Extra- from Erlend Oye's DJ Kicks.

MP3: Rubicon - Alan Braxe & Fred Falke (YSI)

Why are all the most popular tracks on the hype machine remixes?

From 1969's Everybody Knows This Is Nowhere. I think of Neil Young as a more emotional Bob Dylan, who probably smoked less cigarettes. Everybody Knows This Is Nowhere- My favorite album of his. (2nd Studio album):

MP3: Down By The River - Neil Young & Crazy Horse (YSI)
MP3: Round And Round (It Won't Be Long) - Neil Young & Crazy Horse (YSI)
MP3: Cinnimon Girl - Neil Young & Crazy Horse (YSI)

It's too sunny and hot to spend any time walking around, need something to do that takes up a lot of time, like uploading. So, here's a nice mini Sonic Youth discog compilation. If you don't have an idea of what every Sonic Youth album sort of sounds like, here's your chance. Just an easy click on the links below. Get all of the albums at Amazon.

My favorite Sonic Youth albums were all released in the mid 90's. Solid tracks, somewhat traditional style, a bit of a chorus or returning melody. Their early stuff was too weird and experimental for my taste (maybe Sister and Daydream Nation holding some exceptions). The early stuff wasn't hard to listen to or anything- I just prefer Washing Machine to Bad Moon Rising. Anyway, not great at explaining, here it is:

In order of my favorites- not chronological.

1985 Bad Moon Rising (eh):
MP3: Halloween - Sonic Youth (YSI)

Left out 1983's Confusion is Sex because I don't like it much, and their latest because I think I've already posted about it..
