talk to me, but more importantly... dance with me

Over brunch recently, my friend Barbara said to me:

"Lately I just really want to go out and dance. I haven't done that in so long."

On this same note, my intern Dan asked me to make him an "indie rock dance mix." I did, and he said he only liked half of it, but that's just how intern Dan is (you suck! hahaha).

Anyways, here quickly are some fun dance tracks for your indie party, or to listen to at your desk at obnoxiously loud volumes like I do.

Kiss Atlanta tipped me off to this remix of the Snowden song "Black Eyes" which I have always really loved. And I have to say, it's catchy as fuck. I'm a sucker for a great remix, and this absolutely is one. Check out an edited version and the original track also here and make sure you get a copy of Snowden's album Anti-Anti when it comes out on August 22nd on Jade Tree Records. Shake shake shake indeed.

Snowden - Black Eyes (Le Castle Vania Disco Remix)

I shrieked with joy this afternoon when Jon from Wiredset was awesome enough to send out the new Rapture single. I will live and breathe this track until their new album, "Pieces of the People We Love" comes out on September 12th (or uh.. gets leaked on the internet sooner... please?).

The Rapture - Get Myself Into It

Another awesome album that has been getting a lot of desk/dance time lately is the by Teddybears from Sweden, that features some great collaborations with artists like Iggy Pop, Annie, etc. Essentially sort of like every dancefloor loving hipster's wet dream. This track is my currently standout favorite, featuring vocals by Neneh Cherry. I can't get it out of my head.

Teddybears - Yours To Keep

Come see Teddybears DJ at Fat Baby next Thursday, August 3rd. It's going to be a crazy party... more details tba.

And finally, because I just can't help myself and the video is possibly the hottest thing EVER....

Justin Timberlake - Sexy/Back

Oh.. and Lance Bass? Gay. I just want to say for the record that my friend Chris had this pegged back in 1997. Remember when he dated Topanga from Boy Meets World?

Ok now I'm done.

today is tonight

if I wasn't on a 5 am flight to LA the next morning
