Hopefully, this isn’t music overload for you, but I had to split this mixtape in two again…only a week later than I planned. I could give you a list of excuses of my tardiness, but you’d probably just rather get to the music, right?
My first mixtape of the new year features some of the usual suspects like Kid Cudi on a “Umbrella”-sampling Dan Black remix (“Symphonies”), Basia Bulat with her trademark belting (“Go.On.”) and my current favorite Vampire Weekend track (“Holiday”). Though I could have picked any of their catchy tracks off their recent number 1 album, Contra. Elsewhere, Rogue Wave makes their previously mentioned return with synth flare, The Shins’ James Mercer adds to DangerMouse’s diverse collaborators list as Broken Bells and Fun. slows things down a bit for some pop storytelling. I’ve pretty much been addicted to Telephoned‘s interpretation of The Dream’s “Rockin’ That Thang” and The Sound of Arrow’s remix to Alphabeat’s “Hole In My Heart”. Also, I’m pretty sure U.S.E. should have been making music in the ’70’s because I don’t know what to call their music other than Disco.
