The new Caribou LP Swim drops Tuesday 4.20.10, if you haven’t preordered it I highly suggest it, if not pick it up at his merch booth, I hope he has another tour CD to give out this time around. The record has been on repeat and one song that stands out for me over the singles that are leaking is this Hannibal track, the melody is addicting and the horns in the breakdown are spot on.

Matthew Dear has been on a roll, just finished remixing The xx now onto Charlotte Gainsbourg, I keep looping the first 15 seconds over and over.

Poor Beach Fossils I feel like i’ve posted all their songs that I can get my hands onto ISO50. With bands like Beach Fossils, Real Estate and ARMS we will have a nice soundtrack to sunny summer evenings.

I saw our resident DJ Slow Hands play the other night for the 99% design conference here in New York, he dropped this remix of Phoenix that made me end up looking over his shoulder every 5 minutes.

What ever that tocking sound is at 3:17 on that Caribou track made me keep looking at my BlackBerry every two seconds because I thought I was receiving a million text messages.

NAVIS – I believe the sound it a wooden xylophone that you’re hearing at 3:17. It does sound a little like a text message tone.

Wow @ the Gainsbourg remix. Right there with you on the looping the first few seconds comment. Takes me back to the lesser-knowns of the daft punk homework era (don’t hate me – it’s a compliment)
