Sweat Dreams: May

It’s no secret that I haven’t been updating this blog so much recently, but I don’t really have a good excuse other than that I haven’t been really wanting too. That doesn’t mean I’ve stopped listening to music, which is pretty much the opposite of true. So to compensate for a crappy period of blogging, I’m upping this mix that I’m hoping to do monthly called Sweat Dreams. The tracklist for the first installment is below. Be sure to look around or ask about artists on the mix!

♫ Sweat Dreams (May Mix)

Caribou – Odessa (Nite Jewel Remix)
Miracles Club – Light of Love
Delorean – Come Wander
Tanlines – New Flowers
Silver Columns – Always On
Greco Roman – Party Rhythm
Lemonade – Lifted
Small Black – Despicable Dogs (Washed Out Remix)
Wild Nothing – The Witching Hour
The Radio Dept. – Memory Loss
Twin Sister – The Other Side of Your Face

I’d never heard May Ling of till YACHT’s The Afterlife EP where the band covers the song in their own distinctive style. Based in Portland, OR, they released an album last year called Threats and just sent over this music video for new song “New Year.” The song will be featured on a compilation entitled PDXTC featuring music from other Portland bands like Atole, Wampire, and Jeffrey Jerusalem. Check out the video below.

PDXTC is out May 27th on High Scores and Records.

After a few years of down time, Scissor Sisters are back with a new album and a great lead-off song! The album Night Work was produced by Stuart Price (also known for producing Madonna), and here the first glimpse of the album gets re-worked by Price himself.

Invisible Light (Stuart Price 12″ Mix)

Night Work is out June 28th.
