dance to the radio


well that didn’t take long, did it? just a few short weeks after resigning as host of the circuit, i found a new gig with the independently run y-not radio. i’ll be hosting a new show called transmission that specializes in the same alternative dance, electronica (take that, john!), and blog beats that you’ve all come to know and love me for. tune in tonight at 9pm ET for two hours of new music from robyn, beat connection, baths, delorean, night gallery and many more. if you have a track or artist that you think is transmission-worthy, feel free to hit me up via e-mail or twitter.

tonight’s playlist will go a little something like this…

robyn – don’t fucking tell me what to do
hot chip – transmission
monarchy – love get out of my way (tim goldsworthy remix)
chromeo – don’t turn the lights on
soft metals – the cold world melts
LCD soundsystem – get innocuous!
psychobuildings – terror management
wild nothing – bored games
crystal castles – empathy
sleigh bells – A/B machines
MNDR – fade to black
kisses – people can do the most amazing things (saint etienne remix)
beat connection – in the water
the golden filter – frejya’s ghost
delorean – real love
night gallery – constant struggle
active child – take shelter
florence and the machine – you’ve got the love (the xx remix)
aeroplane – i crave paris (friendly fires vs. flight facilities)
washed out – feel it all around
the knife – heartbeats
baths – plea
hercules and love affair – iris
owen pallett – lewis takes his shirt off (CFCF remix)


surf noir


when did seattle start sounding so swedish? this emerald city-based duo has perfectly captured the sunny spirit of all of those sincerely yours artists that everyone loves so much. they call themselves beat connection and they’re giving away their excellent eight-song EP surf noir for free.

hear highlight “in the water” below and grab the rest from beat connection’s bandcamp page. this song should be enough to satiate anyone with a lingering appetite for new stuff from air france.
