Full Preparation

I am now putting most of my focus on the lists for 2009. It's a lot of work for the possibility of having them taken down, but I still like to do it to give you guys an idea of summary, not that we don't have competition out there that might be improving on that thought.

To warm you guys up, here's one of the best things I've listened to recently. It's Blue Oyster Cult's "(Don't Fear) The Reaper" covered by Van She. Really nice take on it, Passion Pit-style without all the annoyingness. Soft rock is making a weird comeback. Also, for your listening pleasure, the Holy Ghost! disco take.

Early Momentum

New Uffie. It's got the Ohio Players "Rollercoaster of Love" as a sample, I think. Liking the outlook for the She-Uff in 2010.

Unfortunate Circumstances

I know we haven't been around lately as often as you would like. Definitely not as much as we would like. I've been working over forty hrs a week to save up money for the holidays and future plans. Getting sick, unfortunately, wasn't something I was planning on, and the destruction of my iPod put a hamper on my music listening time. It literally went up in smoke. Apparently, it's not the first time it's happened to old generation nanos. Screw you, Apple.

Enough about me though, let's talk about In Flagranti. I picked up three remixes that are pretty special. The first, a treat from Lilofee, wrapped up with some special Justice drum snares, and some of those 80's, early 90's pop sounds In Flagranti is becoming known for. Similar style for his next remix, this one for Lenka. Both songs sound like they belong on runways for the super model era, at least I get that vibe. The next one, the pick of the bunch, is for Ali Love's "Smoke and Mirrors". It's fantastic how he captures hip hop 80's dance floor vocoders and then Ali's voice does the rest with that haunting, MJ-esque pining voice.

I would embellish more on these songs but I'm spent.
