Pentatonix - Daft Punk Medley

What was I saying about cover songs? You've probably seen this one already but what the hell, watch it again. It's nuts.

Man Man - Head On

Now for a different kind of crazy, a happy crazy. These guys are great.

The Knife - Full Of Fire

Warning: this song is insane. I highly recommend the album if you somehow enjoy this.

Puddles Pity Party - Lonely Guy

You might recognize this clown from that Lorde cover that's been making the rounds. Seems like this is the new way to break into the music industry, find a great song and re-interpret it and hope you go viral. Fair enough I suppose, it's a little old but it's a tried and tested formula so why not.

Anyway if you happen to see a 7 foot tall guy walking around in a clown suit around New York, chances are it's Puddles and you should ask him for a song. Like this Dexter Romweber classic!

The Black Angels - Broken Soldier

Here's another cool live band. Heard this song a while back and decided to check out some more of them. Glad I did. 

Tony Cox - You Asked For It

Story time. I saw this fella from South Africa in a very private show of about 20 people at an awesome secret venue in Fredericton. His guitar skills were unique to say the least. It was a fantastic show, and I would highly recommend seeing him live if you get the chance. A very affable fellow who likes to lead into his songs with a story or three. Enjoy.

Jungle - The Heat

Seriously. This song is awesome. Chillwave with a touch-a da juice.

Jungle - Drops

This one reminds me of jazzed up Bon Iver.

Jungle - Platoon

Just came across these guys and they are unreal, so it's gonna be an all-Jungle day today.

Omar - The Man

Love this track. Mad creds to Noematus for this hookup. Dat bass (clarinet)!

The Pimps Of Joytime - Jaxta Funk

Ya I dig that funky groove, let's have some more of that.

The Stepkids - Sweet Salvation

Who are these guys? First I've heard of 'em, but this is pretty illin.

Buke & Base - Houdini Crush

This crazy duo have released a new LP and you can certainly bank on it being on my best of 2013 list as it's fantastic. I also enjoy the creativity of their live performances, like this one.

Aloe Blacc & Mike Einziger - Wake Me Up

Forget the absolutely rubbish EDM version of this song, this is how it should have been presented all along. Einziger is from Incubus, in case you were wondering.

Emiliana Torrini - Tookah

Hmm, I think I stopped by here last Friday? Better make up for the absence with some live music on this dreary Thursday. This is the title track from Emiliana's new album.

CFCF - Beyond Light

Now something a little more thought provoking. This is from the newest work of Michael Silver out of Montreal, and I'm a fan of his work, though if I'm honest I was a little underwhelmed by the new album as a whole. It's not bad, I just expected something really amazing. Decide for yourself, and enjoy this track.

Tirzah & Micachu - I'm Not Dancing

I know absolutely nothing about this duo, but for only a couple minutes this is a pretty cool little track. It has an air of sincerity about it and I love the minimal feel.

Tom Trago - True Friends

It's raining and windy outside so it's a good day to get this blog back up and running properly. This fella is from Amsterdam and he's just put out his third LP called The Light Fantastic. It's a pretty decent effort and this is the first single.
