The Soundmen :: Remix That Tree – Snoop Dogg & Kid Cudi

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!

Vampire Weekend :: Two doses of awesome

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’.

Coachella 2k10 :: Awesome

I should be sleeping, but I feel like this is worth staying up to mention. Coachella is going to be awesome.

If you live or have the means to get to California, you need to. This year’s festival is going to be worth the $269 3-day pass, $3 0f which goes to charity. If I wasn’t a poor student, I would totally try and go.

It’s happening April 16, 17 and 18. Tickets go on sale at 10 A.M. January 22.

Check out the flyer, follow this link and start drooling now..
