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 can’t believe I am just now posting something about this. Anyway, Sasquatch Festival in Washington state is going to be so awesome. I want to go so bad, but I live on the other side of the country and I’m broke. If you have the means or live in or near Quincy, WA, you need to go. And then report back on how freaking awesome it was.

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 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.
So many cool things are happening this weekend.

It was suggested to me on Facebook and I think it is honestly one of the coolest things on the internet. Analog Apartment is all about vinyl, all the time. They update you on the latest products and information about vinyl. Its completely interactive making it completely awesome.
Another thing that makes this site that much cooler is My Analog Apartment. A place that you can log all of the vinyl you have and keep a list of all the vinyl you want. Its simple and great.
So for all of you vinyl junkies out there, check these two places out.
