1. “Parentheses” by The Antlers
This is the first track to surface off of their upcoming album and if it is at all indicative of
the whole album, then it’s a complete divergence from their earlier work (in a good way)
and makes it incomparable to the universally acclaimed Hospice.
2. “Tribulations” by LCD Soundsystem
In honor of the band’s final concert, quite possibly forever, we can only hope James Murphy
will grace us with his presence somewhere down the road.
3. “Dystopia” by YACHT
Didn’t know the apocalypse would be so funky, in a society defined by suffering and misery
YACHT provides a bright spot for all to dance to.
4.”Two Against One” by Danger Mouse and Daniele Luppi (ft. Jack White)
Producer to the stars Danger Mouse has teamed up with Italian composer Daniele Luppi
whilst enlisting the likes of Jack White and Norah Jones to feature on their upcoming
album entitled Rome. This is the one of two songs (the other features Norah Jones) recently
leaked and it has that trademark Danger Mouse sound that is so coveted these days.
5. “Air & Lack Thereof ” by James Blake
One of the few listener-friendly dubsteppers out there, James Blake provides his own
unique take on the gritty genre.
6. “Go Outside” by The Cults
One of the best songs to come out of 2010, reminds me of Panda Bear/Animal Collective,
evoking that “My Girls” kind of feel.
7. “Scary Monsters and Nice Sprites” by Skrillex
Love the hook on this DJ’s 2010 hit.
8. “Adam Raised A Cain” by Bruce Springsteen
Friday, April 15 Sigma Chi will host the world’s greatest Springsteen cover band for SPW,
shameless plugging aside, this song does feature one of the greatest guitar riff’s of all-time.
9. “Peter Gunn/Where’s Your Head At” by 2manydj’s
Who else is aggressive enough to mash these two songs? If you haven’t listened to their
2002 album As Heard on Radio Soulwax Pt.2, do yourself a favor and download it.
10.”Little Girl” by Danger Mouse & Sparklehorse (Feat. Julian Casablancas)
The first Danger Mouse song on the list inspired me to put this simple, yet dark and catchy
tune off of the Danger Mouse and Mark Linkous 2009 collaboration Dark Night of the
11. “Sleepyhead” by Passion Pit (Borgore Remix)
Some more dubstep for you to roll along with.
12. “The Very Best of Neil Diamond” by Super Furry Animals
Pretty sure this is mocking Neil Diamond, not sure if he cares what these Welsh rockers
have to say.
13. “Cry When You Get Older” by Robyn
While I’m not usually one for light, shameless pop, there’s just something about Robyn that
makes her the exception to my rule.
