I’m really excited about the debut album from NYC duo Blondes. They’ve released a few singles (including the amazing “You Mean So Much to Me“) and now February 7th RVNG Intl. will release their self-titled album. It’s a 2xCD affair, with disc one comprising their original tracks and disc 2 seeing those tracks reinterpreted by the likes of JD Twitch, Laurel Halo, Teengirl Fantasy and more. Here’s a track I really love:

Blondes – Wine

And here’s the Teengirl Fantasy remix:

And here’s another, an “ICEY COLD TECHNO REMIX” from Bicep (super “icey”)

SANTIGOLD YOU GUYS! She survived the o -> i changeover in her name, and now she’s got a new record. Following her mixtape for Mad Decent, her new single is produced by Switch (Major Lazer) and Buraka Som Sistema. The new song is loud, percussive, a bit chaotic. Cody Critcheloe of SSION (I know I didn’t make a top albums of the year but SSION’s Bent was definitely my number one. Or two; I never figured it out). Anyway. the results are below and you might be very pleased.

You can download “Big Mouth” at her website.

Keep yr eyes peeled cos Cody has another video for MNDR.
