Some remixes to get your day started. Lately I haven’t been actively seeking out remixes, instead letting them find me. It’s worked out well, even if that means fewer remixes. Also, I’ve got a request; I’m looking for: R. Kelly – I’m A Flirt (DJ Obsession soca ragga remix) [ft. Lady Saw & T-Pain. If you happen to know where I can find that, let me know. Enjoy the mixes!
For whatever reason, I never got around to listening to Junior Boys sophomore album from last year, So This Is Goodbye. I never regretted that until I heard the Dead Horse EP last month. It was only a remix EP, but it was still impressive. Now it looks like I’ll get another chance at So This Is Goodbye, as Domino Records plans on releasing a deluxe edition of it in the coming weeks. To promote it, they also released the video for ‘In The Morning’, lead single from Goodbye. Directed by Jaron Albertin, this video is considerably smarter than most modern videos. Not only is it gorgeous to watch, but there’s some real meaning to it. Very nice.
Yeah, that’s right; it’s my birthday. In addition to playing Person Pitch nonstop on my brand new stereo system, I actually found some time to track down some birthday related tracks from Andrew Bird, Bright Eyes, Sinatra, and Monroe. They separate into two categories; quick little one-minute renditions of the song people leave on your answering machine every year, and longer tracks that deal with the general idea of birthdays. Some of these are interesting beyond their gimmick, especially the infamous ‘Happy Birthday Mr. President’.
