Sunday Girl - "Four Floors" (Video + Diplo Remix)

Sunday Girl
Sunday Girl has a mere seven comments on her MySpace and under 800 plays. Yet somehow she's already commissioned remixes from Diplo and Russ Chimes along with an oh-so-posh video directed by Elisha Smith-Leverock. Of course, that may say more about MySpace's decline than Sunday Girl's popularity, but in any case, she's clearly another one of these out-of-nowhere off-center British bubblegum pop types (e.g., Ellie Goulding, Florrie). Give her seven months, and she'll be climbing the BBC singles chart.

Diplo turns out a terrific dubstep-leaning remix here. (That's right—Diplo, as well as every other producer on the planet, is making at least some dubstep these days.)

Mux Mool - "Hog Knuckles"

photo by Drew Lindgren
I'd like to say I'm posting this because it's a solid track (which it is), but that only accounts for half my fascination. The other half has to do with the fact that Brian Lindgren (aka Mux Mool) appears to be composing music—at least in part—on an old Sanyo CRT, as pictured above.

Geeky bonus points aside, Mux Mool's new album, Skulltaste (Amazon, eMusic, iTunes) just dropped on Ghostly/MoonGadget, and it fits in comfortably with the Flying Lotus-led L.A. glitch-hop scene (even though Mux is from Brooklyn).

Pocahaunted Live in Fayetteville Tonight

photo via warrenjabali God bless Northwest Arkansas for being such a convenient in-between point for many SXSW acts. For such a small town, Fayetteville is fully steeped in live music all year round, so it's only right that we get some really choice up-and-coming acts around SXSW time. Such acts, namely Pocahaunted, Wet Hair and Dirty Beaches, will be gracing the Sang House this week. Take a peek at the Facebook event page. Pocahaunted's set is tonight.

Here's "All Of Is Of" off Pocahaunted's new album, Make It Real:

Crystal - "Magic"

Crystal

Japanese outfit Crystal consists of three frowny dudes and one smiley girl. They just dropped their excellent four-track sophomore EP, Neo Age (Amazon, iTunes), on Institubes sublabel Unsunned. Think a mellower Beverly Hills Cop soundtrack meets Yellow Magic Orchestra, and you're halfway there.

The Boogaloo Crew - "Calling All Dancers"

The Boogaloo Crew

Something about this track hooks me like a fish. Maybe it's the synth nods to classic ambient house. Haven't figured it out yet.

Dominique Young Unique - "Show My Ass" MP3

Dominique Young Unique

The "Show My Ass" video has been making big blog rounds, and I was hooked the moment a friend pointed me to it. I've been searching high and low for an MP3 to no avail, but it just popped up in my inbox from Dominique's label Art Jam like an answered prayer. Enjoy!

Dom's clubbed-out Tampa flow fits uncannily perfectly atop the schizoid beat supposedly produced by Yo! Majesty producer David Alexander. The Rye Rye comparisons are definitely valid, but Dom is holding her own out here for sure.

Here's the Simone Ghilardotti-directed video, in case you missed its initial impact last week:



"Show My Ass" will be on Dominique Young Unique's Blaster EP, which is slated for a May release.

Drake - "Over" [prod. by Boi-1da]

Drake

One of my New Year's resolutions has been to post less Top 40 drivel, but damn. Drake came hard on this one. It's allegedly his first single off Thank Me Later.

Basement Jaxx [ft. 607 & Bobby] - "Raindrops (Joker & Ginz Remix) (607 Flip)"

607

Ah, the glory days...early 2009. Back then, I was posting a new 607 flip every few weeks. But after a few months of keeping our supply steady and thoroughly whetting our appetites, Lord Six split to Russia for a minute, and the flip flood came to a sad, unwelcome halt. Luckily 607 has been recording with his brother Bobby (aka Mr. Morbid) throughout this interim. He's got a new 17-track album out titled Ear Fear, and you can cop it here.

He actually sent me this flip of Joker & Ginz's remix of "Raindrops" two months ago, so my bad for just now getting around to sharing it. It's on the album:

In other Lord Six news, he came in second place in Diplo's Makin' Christmas contest over on Mad Decent. He got beat out by Milonakis, which—don't get me wrong—I loves some Schmiloschmakis, but damn. Our boy Six took that. Let's be rill.
