can’t believe it’s a new decade.

YAY, finally! I love New Years, it always gives off this feel of changes and resolutions, and even though it’s not true, people at least think they can do anything and become anything they want – and that’s enough to have a more positive energy going around. For some reason, New Years always makes me stop to think, too, and evaluate things… maybe look into some quotes or novels with deep meanings that give me an inspiration for changing or something insane of the sort.  And for that I found this interesting website with the best musical quotes ever, it’s really cute.

Anyways, for the vicious readers of this blog (I’m sure there are billions out there), I don’t have that much to post, but really wanted to say something in the first day of the year and am thus forced to share the few material I have. Not bad ones, though, I looove them!

First of all, it’s this cover of Kids from MGMT by The Kooks: pretty much all the happiness of an ordinary MGMT song, with all its bubbly vibe, with the orgasmic accent of our dearest Luke Pritchard, who has made the song a little less electro and a little more guitar-friendly.

Secondly, I found this Passion Pit remix of the song Sleepyhead made by Ring Trick; now, I usually dislike most Passion Pit (and Phoenix, for that matter) remixes out there, because I think the sound is already too original and unique and is just sort of  ‘ruined’  when messed with. This one, however, doesn’t necessarily ruin it (it’s not better than the original though, of course) but transforms in into a more dance-y tune, with a more choppy rhythm and less of the high-pitched Angelakos vocals that could make the tune more proper for parties, perhaps. Same applies to the Redial remix of Phoenix’s Lisztomania, that added on an extra beat.

Thirdly, I missed out on watching Mos Def’s new music video for Supermagic, song from the 2009 album The Ecstatic, last year. Haha it’s such a homedawg video, that’s all I can say.
