Possible winners of the indie-band-having-the-best-year-in-2010 contest, Local Natives have launched a remix microsite, offering up stems to a couple of the hits off their hugely successful Gorilla Manor. Fans can download the stems of Wide Eyes, World News, Camera Talk and Who Knows Who Cares” and make their own remixes,conceivably remixing together parts of multiple different songs into one.
Suckers entered first with their version of Wide Eyes (check it out).
Finally,Local Natives have just announced a tour withMerge Records indie throwbacks The Love Language, New Zealand indie posters The Ruby Suns, and shaggy folk quintet The Union Line.
I’m sick as a dog at home and I’ve got about 10 more minutes before I fall back asleep. Just thought I’d point out a couple great remixes I found this morning on the web, check them out.
I figured it would be around this time when I started finding summer mixes online. I’ve been tinkering with one myself, which hopefully I’ll be able to get to you soon.
Todays treasure is from the blog Music For Kids Who Can’t Read Good, called Summer (Or What It Sounds Like). Featuring a variety of great bands such as Phantogram, The Joy Formidable, Yeasayer, Free Energy and Local Natives, this mix is a 21 song playlist that you have to put on. I’ve been a fan of this site for quite a while now, do yourself a favour and check it out.
As well, just looking at the playlist, you get the sense it comes from a trusted source. A bunch of these tracks are not the album singles and promo tracks that hit everywhere on the net. They are those great tunes, tracks deep into great albums.
