God, Make Up Your Mind

Ok, I've thought this through and to make it easier on myself (whilst better for you, the readers), I've decided to do the mixed posts every few days or so. It works out better for me because I can concentrate more on my schooling and it works out better for you guys because you get so much love in one post.

I purchased the next installment of the Leave It All Behind compilations Modular Records are releasing yearly. Volume 2 came out two days ago and much like Volume 1, it contains some of the best Indie-Dance tracks you'll ever come across. Some of the tracks are rare, some of them are recent, and some are from last year. Either way, it's a well structured cd and I'm loving every minute of it.

The Go! Team Ladyflash (Simian Mobile Disco Remix)
Hot Chip And I Was A Boy From School (Erol Alkan's Extended Re-work Remix)
Jenny Wilson Let My Shoes Lead Me Forward (The Knife Remix)
Cut Copy Going Nowhere (Sebastian Remix)
Mystery Jets The Boy Who Ran Away (Riton Re-Rub)
Klaxons Gravity's Rainbow (Van She Remix)
Yeah Yeah Yeahs Cheated Hearts (Peaches Remix)

Dan Kelly And The Alpha Males are possibly the most cleverest band around. Everything Dan does is just genius, but thats to be expected for he's uncle is none other than Australia's finest singer/song-writer Paul Kelly. I've saw Dan Kelly perform at this years Big Day Out festival and i must say, he is one hell of a character, especially when he told all the Trivium fans to "f**k off!". Classic.

This band was a major surprise for me. I hadn't heard any of Blood Meridian's stuff previous before getting a hold of their new cd, Kick Up The Dust. Folk-Rock at it's finest people.

Everybody has heard enough of The Decemberists. But heres a song i like off the new album, The Crane Wife.

The Decemberists O Valencia!
