The Soundmen are at it again, remixing great songs and putting their own unique twist. And it’s no surprise to me that I love the newest remix featuring “That Tree” – Snoop Dogg & Kid Cudi.
From The Soundmen:
The Soundmen have taken Snoop and Cudi’s new single “That Tree” and turned it into a space disco jam where George Clinton, New Order, Passion Pit, and Modest Mouse would all be playing at the same time. Its an extremely fun record whose goal is helping to bring the listener through those last weeks of winter and into spring. I hope you enjoy!
The Soundmen are the NYC/Seattle production duo of Justin Jamison and Scott Durday. They have produced and remixed records for artists such as Glasvegas, The Drums, Super Viral Brothers, 33hz, P.SO (AOK Collective), Ron Browz, G Dep and many others.

Alright, so I love Rancid. I really love Rancid. And I really love Vampire Weekend. When the two are put together, it just makes it that much better. I’m not too sure how I didn’t know about this until about 20 minutes ago, but nonetheless here it is. Vampire Weekend doing a fantastic cover of one or my favorite Rancid songs, ‘Ruby Soho’.

But wait, there’s more! Vampire Weekend has also released a music video for “Giving Up The Gun”. The video is directed by The Malloys and features cameos from Joe Jonas of the Jonas Brothers, Jake Gyllenhaal, Lil’ Jon and RZA of the Wu-Tang Clan.
I think this is great. Everyone’s favorite French and oh so cute band Phoenix has covered Bob Dylan’s “Sad Eyed Lady of The Lowlands”. I must say, it’s pretty incredible. If you haven’t heard, you need to and if you haven’t downloaded for free, YES FREE, you need to. Now.
Listen here. Sad Eyed Lady of The Lowlands
And then download it on Think Indie, the best place to download all of your indie faves. This song was performed at a session for German Magazine Musikexpress.

It features some of the coolest remixes from Atlanta’s rappers. I am particularly fond of the Memory Tapes remix of Dem Getaway Boyz – Imma G, but the whole thing is pretty spectaular if you ask me. And its from [adult swim], which just screams awesomeness. Take a listen to my favorite track and then follow the link to listen to the other remixes and downloads.
