The Most iPod Worthy Mp3s of the past blogweek

Sorry that I am not a 'pure mp3 blog n e more.' The mp3 economy has kinda been on hiatus, except for blogger who wanted to 'get more hits' by 'posting tracks from the latest anCo/Andrew Bird album', etc. Just want to give yall stuff that's worth being on ur iPod without having 2 read like 100 other blogs.

Thnx 4 trusting me as 'a tastemaker.'
Here are 3 meaningful mp3s.


[MP3 #1]
Phoenix - 1901

Phoenix has always been good. They are from France. Their albums have generally all been 'pop that people respect because it is well-crafted', but since the mp3 economy has been so dry lately, I think there is a high demand for this kind of accessible sound, so it will probably be 'moderately overhyped' and lead people to say 'it's not THAT good.' I have always wondered how their lead singer sounds so French when he sings. Think he is married to that Lost in Translation director lady. When this mp3 'dropped', it kinda reminded me of the glory days of 2k7, when all blogs posted the same mp3 on the same day, cuz it was 'so good/relevant.' Hopefully Q2+Q3 give us more new music to blog about than Q1 did. h8 u 2k9Q1.



[MP3 #2]
Friendly Fires - Skeleton Boy (Air France Remix)

I have posted the original version of this song, in addition 2 various versions of their song "PARIS." This remix is supposed to be conceptual, I think. So while I am not sure if I actively 'like' it, I think it makes sense if u have a lot of time 2 kill and need something that sounds 'different.' I think not all remixes are supposed 2 be 'dance anthems', kind of like when AnCo remixes something. But yeah, I will keep it in my iTunes library, and reflect upon how much 'new music I sample/hear because it is free [via blogforks].'



[MP3 #3]
CURSES! The Deep End (Holy Ghost! Remix)
I think this song is authentic disco. I remember when the electro era was ending, music started 2 sound like this. It is an upbeat, dark, urgent jam. Holy Ghost! is a pretty authentic band, so whenever they remix something, it is probably worth listening to. [mp3 hijack via discodust]


Is there a new 'buzzband' that every1 is 'blogging/talking about'?
Is there a 'new blog on the street' that I should pay attention 2 because it has impeccable taste and might singlehandedly save the bloghaus genre?
do u like music?
