Electro-Disco Darlings AVAN LAVA Share Free “Flex Fantasy” EP

Um, yes. The first two tracks are like Prince and Scissor Sisters had a baby with Cathy Dennis. Can you really ask for more on a hump day? I don’t think so. Thank you AVAN LAVA – I will be busting these jams out during Pride – which I can’t believe is only a few weeks away!

Hump Day Mix Tape ft. Dummy Mag Mix 111, Midnight Magic & More Ass Shakers

My heart is still recovering from not being at South by Southwest. In all seriousness I think I sounded like an air-horn that replaced the annoying honking sound with the even more annoying Snookie, “Waaaah”.

Instead of crying about it (any more), I distracted myself by finding music to share with you.

Let’s start out with this tasty Holy Ghost remix of Midnight Magic’s track “Drop Me A Line

Dummy Mag’s Mix from Brenmar is a delight and holy shit – it even has Dru Hill‘s “How Deep Is Your Love” which was my dance floor grinding jam back in college.

Rye Rye will be releasing a proper album soon and a set of remixes for the single “Boom Boom” has made its way to the net. So far, this is my favorite of the batch:

Friday Mix Tape: Random Greatness from The Mynabirds to WhoMadeWho

Apologies for not writing too much this week – I’ve started another freelance job to add to my others, I’m starting another project for anyone who reads/listens to anything of mine and will have more exciting, and incredibly random, news for you soon.

The theme for me this week has been: Random. So, the mix of music below should be considered rather random, but still great.

Shout Out Out OutNever The Same Way Twice

The Mynabirds – Let the Record Go

The MynabirdsNumbers Don’t Lie

The MaccabeesFeel To Follow (via ohmyrock)

Radiation CityEye of Yours (from their upcoming Cool Nightmare EP)

WhoMadeWhoInside World which I would describe as ear sex between Hercules + Love Affair, Pet Shop Boys & Wild Beasts

Old MonkSacred Birds

Slow CountryYes You Have

Redgrave is a band to get really excited about because they’re from Chicago and, from what I’m hearing so far, have that great hot & ugly sex-rock vibe

This song has my teenage angst written all over it. When I listen to it I feel like I’m Willow from Buffy watching an episode of Buffy.

Whispertown “Open the Other Eye” from her March 20th EP release Parralel

Friday Afternoon Mix Tape ft: Hollis Brown, Emily Wells, Saint Saviour & More

cassette funky town

For your consideration, we’ve got tracks to stream and download and an entire hour-long mixtape to get you started this weekend.

Emily Wells “Passenger” (Kid Koala Remix)

Hollis Brown’s track, “Spoonful” is ridiculously good. Makes me want to drink some bourbon and get my feet stomping. Their  Nothing & The Famous No One EP Drops April 3

Saint Saviour Covers M83 “Midnight City”

Zambri “Places”

I love this Tune In Crew remix of Beyonce’s “End of Time”, it reminds me of El Debarge.

Here’s an hour-long mix  from Rush Hour Records in anticipation of their Nu Groove compilation album coming out next week.

The Jane Doze mashup, “Kids, Set Fire to Someone That I Used to Know” is pretty fucking great.

This last track will usher you into the weekend very happily. Mattie Safer ft. Ninjasonik “That Your Girl” (Skeet Skeet Remix Snippet). Love!
