getting interactive



as longtime readers (all three? four of you?) may remember, i had long ago expressed an interest in making pop that rocks more open to outside participation and contributions. i also keep teasing the prospect of making and posting mixes.

inspired by an idea my friend john has executed with moderate success in the past amongst his friends, i thought it might be fun to combine these aspirations. hence, this announcement/invitation for the pop that rocks interactive mix project!

think of it as a game of telephone. sort of. i’ll start by posting the song here that i’d like to kick off the mix with. you would then submit a song that you think should go after it. it can be any song you like. i’ll keep constructing the mix from various submissions and close it with one more selection of my own once we’ve reach about and hour and twenty of music (typical mix CD length). sounds easy enough right?

you can submit your suggestions for songs in the comment section, via email, or through my twitter. i’ll probably update the mix every two days or so in order for people to see what’s chosen and decide what they think should go next. depending on how many submissions i get, i’m going to try and maintain a limit of one song inclusion per user.

so without further delay, let’s get this thing started! i’m beginning with a b-side from one of my favorite new acts of the year, ceo, aka eric berglund of the tough alliance. released online shortly after his delightful debut album white magic, “everything is going to be alright” more readily reflects his parent project’s balearic, beat-driven beauty.

its looping beat, wordless sighs and house samples make for what i think is a perfect start to this little game.

have a listen below and see what you think should come next. i’ll update the post in the next day or so with one of your recommendations.

ceo – everything is going to be alright

have fun and thanks in advance for playing!

fyi, i’m also open to suggestions on a nifty graphic to run with the finished mix.

transparency is the new mystery


a day after saying some not so nice things about best coast (which bethany responded to in lovably classy, brassy fashion last night on the first night of her tour), marnie stern is putting her music where her mouth is and sharing a sweet new song from her forthcoming self-titled album.

i’m liking the relative restraint in her vocals and playing on this song compared to past ones.

class actress covers neon indian


since covering neon indian is all the rage lately, here’s class actress giving it a go with their slippery take on “terminally chill.” hotness.

more florrie remixes


here are two new fantastic fred falke club edits of florrie‘s newest free singles “give me your love” and “you wanna start something.”

you wanna start something (fred falke club edit)

robyn better get body talk pt. 3 out and fast. florrie’s neck and neck with the prolific output this year.


we ought to be together


we still have little to no information on philly electro-enigma CSLSX (aside from what’s on this nifty new website). i guess we’ll just have to settle for a cool new jam from them until they’re ready to reveal themselves.

CSLSX – we ought to be together

reporter x soft metals


it was only a matter of time before this happened. portland’s soft metals have remixed a track for their nu-disco neighbors reporter. their styles fit each other like a glove on the latter’s current single “click shaw,” accenting each other’s strengths without overpowering either.

listen now:

gold zebra – debut EP


montreal’s gold zebra released their debut EP today via their bandcamp page. in addition to previously previewed stand-outs “trans desert” and “six years,” it offers four more new samplings of their alluring xx-meets-italo sound that’ll provide the perfect soundtrack for the end of any night.
