Neon Neon

From the combined ultra-genius of LA producer Boom Bip plus Gruff Rhys of Super Furry Animals comes Neon Neon, an electro-incredible tour de force. Consistent with the 80's revival that is dominating the new music scene, Neon Neon cuts right to the chase with a concept album chock full of dirty electro and hip-hop bumping revolving around the life of an 80's automobile playboy named John DeLorean. From listening to this EP one time, you can only guess as to what amazingness the full album will bring. Combined with hints that it will also feature help from Yo Majesty!, the Magic Numbers, and Beck, the complete Neon Neon album promises to be something to look forward to. In the meantime, enjoy these EP samplers.

myspace is the new place for hearing neon neon tracks.
get the full length this monday.

Buy Anything Day

If you participate in the international version of Buy Nothing Day today, you hate America. Maybe you like shopping, but you don't like big crowds or the adrenaline rush of getting the last parking spot, and so you cower in your home all day waiting for the lines to go down while secretly doing all of your shopping online. But you still hate America.

On the other hand, if you participate in Buy Nothing Day because you think that you are upholding the true spirit of the holidays, you hate America and you didn't pay attention to Jesus. Remember Jesus said, "It is easier for a camel to pass through the eye of a needle than for a rich man to enter the Kingdom of Heaven (Luke 18:25)". So unless you have a tiny camel or a big fucking needle, you best go out and spend all of that money that this glorious nation has passed on to you so that by the time you die, you are not as rich as the man behind you. And think of the children; for every pair of shoes that you don't buy, there is a Chinese family that won't get a serving of rice for the day.

And in terms of holiday spirit, forget about it. The entire holiday season stems from pagan beliefs and Harry Potter stories so if you don't shop the entire time, you might get struck down by Zeus the god of consumption and globalization. My advice? Why try to put something back into the holidays that was never there in the first place? Just because you're out shopping doesn't mean that you can't be full of holiday spirit; with all of that human interaction you're bound to get the opportunity to open the door for someone, or help an old lady carry her bags to the car or let that other car cut you off. The people that would have you believe that the process of not shopping will somehow save your soul are the same people that would rather have you save your money to put in the coffer when it comes around to your pew. It's not how much you shop, it's simply how you shop that matters. So get out there, buy this new ridiculously hot American Apparel dress:

and get yourself a new pair of shoes, but be full of holiday spirit the entire time. Go America.

tons of songs to remind you that not all (new) hiphop sucks balls;)

Cam'ron drops an epic two disc mixtape and of course pleases the hell out of everyone. download the whole mixtape here.

Cam'ron - Chitty Chitty Bang Bang
Cam'ron - Kill My Dog ft. Tom Gist

Wale. the ambassador of rap for the capital. as far as i'm concerned, kanye and 50 both lost because the albums they spent millions producing and advertising didn't even come close to being as good as the mixtape Wale put out for free with Nick Catchdubs. get it here.

Wale - Nike Boots

Wale - Good Girls (Cousin Cole Remix v1.4)
Wale - Freaks (DJ Quixotic and Brontosaurus Remix)

kid sister, born melissa young in markham, il. she's hot. her brother is half of flosstradamus. she's dating a-trak. sadly shit fell through and kid sister won't be gracing VT with her presence anytime soon:(

Kid Sister - Switch Board
Kid Sister - Pro Nails ft. Kanye West
Chromeo - Tenderoni (Sinden Remix ft. Kid Sister)

Cool Kids. they played the daft punk after party. they are currently on tour with M.I.A. their tracks are fresh and they dress like a hipster version of run dmc. cool kids are cool as shit. hopefully we'll be seeing them in the northeast kingdom this fall?!(fingers crossed)

Cool Kids - Black Mags

Cool Kids - What It Iz
Cool Kids - Gettin' It ft. Lil Wayne

his beard is silly. he hails from philly. (sorry i won't do that again) but seriously freeway's new album feels a lot like the game's debut work. he sounds genuine and jay-z and 50 produce the shit out of him. (and that's a good thing;)

Freeway - Nuttin' On Me

Freeway - Take it to the Top ft. 50 Cent

*we don't do hiphop posts often so if you feel like i missed someone or completely missed the boat comment and let us know.

Blast from the Past

Once upon a time, I found this album called Motown Remixed in the studio. I played it and made people dance for months. Then it got forgotten and put back in the shelves of the music library where forgotten cds go. But then I found it again yesterday and listened and danced again. If you haven't heard this, get on it.

I Want You Back - Jackson 5 (z-trip remix)(zshare)
Tears of a Clown - Smokey Robinson (Hotsnax remix)(zshare)
ABC - Jackson 5 (Salaam Remy Krunk-A-Delic Party Mix)(zshare)

The Lattice Group

long time friends of wrmc 91.1fm Astri von Arbin Ahlander and Vetta Kofman have recently launched a project/non-profit/organization named The Lattice Group and they have a snazzy new website brought to you by some of the finest scandinavian designers;) As it was explained to me, the mission of The Lattice Group is to raise awareness and discussion about work-life conflicts. (i.e. men vs. women in workplace/career paths/etc.) of course its a lot more complex than that but you'll have to visit the site to learn more:
and for your listening pleasure....
The Prodigy - Smack My Bitch Up (zshare)
p.s. if you want an in-person explanation, be sure to stop by the library cafe seven days a week. they hang out there a lot

i've been wanting to write this post for awhile now but alas, life sometimes gets in the way of the internet. but anywho, Mercurius FM = EPIC. like no joke. this guy is from phoenix, AZ and according to his myspace he is 20/WHITE/MALE/RAD (not necessarily in that order). I know i've thrown epic around a lot this year, but i can objectively say now that Mercurius FM is thoroughly homeric. He's not just another white kid that figured out traktor, this guy has an an amazing ear and an original sound and he is remixing everything.....

and he has a delicious new EP out....
but you're going to have to buy this one on your own. get it on his myspace page. now.

p.s. also head over to the myspace page to hear his epic and yet to released remix of New Jack

WWWednesday 15

Ok guys, sorry for the long time with no updates. If you've ever studied at Middlebury in October, you know that shit gets crazy. Right now I should be studying economics but the utility cost of getting out this new music is much higher (especially when half of it is from Sweden), so here goes:

Muscles (Guns Babes Lemonade) - Of course everyone has been dancing to this one for a while, but we just got the whole album in the station. so to celebrate, flex 'em.
Ice Cream (zshare)

The Mary Onettes (The Mary Onettes) - Genius. It's like if New Order got young again, changed their name and were from Sweden.
Pleasure Songs

Tempo No Tempo (Repetition EP) - East yayo rockers and their post-punk jerk-out sound from the new EP.
Repetition (zshare)

Coconut Records (Nighttiming) - WRMC <3 Jason Schwartzman!!!
West Coast (zshare)

Emily Jane White (Dark Under Coat) - Theme song from the new movie coming out, aptly titled "Wild Tigers I Have Known".
Wild Tigers I Have Known (zshare)

Kylie Minogue (X) - No, we actually don't have this album yet, but it's too exciting not to post this released track.
In My Arms (zshare)

The Hives (The Black and White Album) - Although these Swedes never really caught on in America, the album is still fun and rockin. Also, I heard they were in the studio with...Timbaland? And Pharrel?
Won't Be Long (zshare)

Joe Lally (Nothing is Overrated) - I can't stand Fugazi, but this song is dope.
Painfully Aware (zshare)

Lightspeed Champion (Galaxy of the Lost) - So after leaving Test Icicles, Devnote Hynes went to Omoha to record a folk album. That's right. And this song is also dope. And it's about the infamous nightclub in Middlebury.
Xanadu (zshare)

Anna Ternheim (Anna Ternheim) - (more) Swedish singer songwriter who also sings beautifully in English.
Today is a Good Day (zshare)

Cary Brothers (Who Are You) - Remember those guys that were famous for awhile from that song on the Garden State soundtrack? Well they released a whole album of that stuff this summer.
Ride (zshare)

Jens Lekman (Night Falls Over Kortedala) - Here is some of that sweet Swedish indie pop everyone's been talkin about. So much Sweden today...
If I Could Cry (zshare)
