Mmmmm Santiago is a really cool city, albeit a bit too Western. Can't wait for some supercheap action in Peru and Bolivia. Anyway I'm really tired and hungover so commentary will be scarce.
Check out a couple of these awesome classics if you haven't already. Like so awesome it's just wacko. The Crass Version of LCD Soundsystem mulls around an extremely groovy disco vibe before gradually picking up steam and somehow mutates into an electro semibanger with screetching Soulwax synths. An odyssey of awesome, and the vocals are just irresistable. The Young Punx remix of Seven Nation Army (a song which I wish had been remixed a whole lot more) is a huge summery funky/club house explosion which never really saw the light of day aside from on Kissatlanta (props!) a few years ago. Can't for the life of me understand why, I would have expected it to crush clubs in 05 or 06. See what you reckon.
LCD Soundsystem - Yeah (Crass Version)
The White Stripes - Seven Nation Army (Young Punx Remix)
The Holy Ghost! remix of Goblin City would have been just about my favourite song of 2008 if it had been released in 2008 not 2007. So I was a bit late... What's new? However, I haven't really noticed much talk of the Run Roc remix which is certainly not without its own charm. I'm assuming Run Roc is some kind of small label who may occasionally do mixes under the Run Roc name, not unlike DFA - am I right? Anyway, this is a really nice smooth groove to kick back to.
Panthers - Goblin City (Run Roc Remix)
Hope you're all enjoying 09 so far. Any new fads popped up in the last few weeks/blog centuries since I've been away? Any predictions? What's next?
