Making up for lost time passed and to come.

20 Jul

I’ll admit it, I’ve been pretty lazy with this blog for the past week. Please don’t get mad, but I am probably not going to post any more music until next week. I’m heading to Crankworx tomorrow in the afternoon and I don’t think it would be wise of me to bring my laptop along. Because of this, I’m going to hook you up with a bunch of new summer tunes to hold you over until then.

Please don’t hate me,

Grant.

Bibio is the alias of Stephen Wilkinson, a British producer who usually spends his time dabbling in electronic and experimental music. His most recent record, Mind Brokeh, is definitely worth having a listen to. Don’t beleive me? Hit play on the first track below. Don’t be fooled by the slow and nostalgic intro as this is definitely a summer jam worth having on tap.

Bibio – Lovers’ Carvings [Mediafire]

Bibio – K Is For Kelson [Mediafire]

These next guys released their debut five track EP about three months ago and it makes the perfect summer driving soundtrack. Their laid back, dreamy, afro-guitar sound could be taken straight out of a sixties surf film. Does it surprise you to learn that they’re from San Diego?

Dirty Gold – California Sunrise [Mediafire]

Dirty Gold – Quiet Life [Mediafire]

Just in case if you were wondering if they could play this song just as well live.

Dirty Gold – Quiet Life (Live In NY)

I have already posted about this young Swede hailing from the city of Malmö. Just in case you missed it, all you need to know is that his originals and remixes are enough to put you in an almost drug induced state of relaxation.

Summer Heart – Please Stay

Work Drugs – Rad Racer (Summer Heart Remix) [Mediafire]

Anthony Gonzales is the name of the incredible musician who was behind the making of this incredible track. He hails from Antipales in France and has been making music for many, many years. He is releasing a new record called Hurry Up, We’re Dreaming on October 18th, but after hearing this first unleashed single, October isn’t coming fast enough.

M83 – Midnight City [Mediafire]

I cannot stress how much I love this song. It’s the same story with these guys as M83, except the album is out late August.

Bombay Bicycle Club – Shuffle [Mediafire]

I know absolutely nothing about Fortunetellers besides the simple fact that this track will put a bounce in your step. You can buy their EP for only one US Dollar on their Bandcamp. To all of my fellow Canadian readers, take advantage of that exchange rate.

Fortunetellers – Make It Easy [Mediafire]

A reggae cover of a country classic. Need I say more?

Toots & The Maytals – Take Me Home, Country Roads (John Denver Cover) [Mediafire]

Do you really think that I can go a month without posting about the Remix Artist Collective? As always, André Anjos has done it again and wowed the music world with his obvious talent. I swear he has a bag of of pixie dust because he continually transforms amazing songs into something even better.

Theophilus London ft. Sara Quin – Why Even Try (RAC Mix) [Mediafire]

Ellie Goulding – Lights (RAC Mix)

This one was from about four months ago now, but just in case you missed it, it deserves a listen.

Two Door Cinema Club – Something Good Can Work (RAC Mix) [Mediafire]
