SOUND: Kuhn - Quiet Nights

The LA rain storm continues to flow relentlessly on day 5, today. I love it except for the idiocy it soaks into every driver's soul. I want to play outside in it rather than wade through it, protected by this senseless aluminum bubble. Instead, Kuhn's remix of Antonio Carlos Jobim and Stan Getz's Corcovado is about as close as I'll get to being outside today. Eat a taco, it's tuesday.

The final tracks of the KneeKnocked C-Sides happen to be my personal favorites as well as both the first piece I ever put together and the most recent (listed respectively below). While they may be amateur at best, they do remind me of how much work and detail goes into the creation of remarkable things and why I have such appreciation for those capable of enduring the search for excellence.

Day 4 - FINAL DAY, Tracks 7 & 8 - In Memoriam.

SOUND: Bon Iver - Skinny Love (Das Kapital Rerub)

Well shit, this is good. I wasn't going to post anything else for the day but this is too good to pass up. I'm not generally a huge remix fan, but whoever Das Kapital is, with this Rerub* of Skinny Love they're killing it.

*Really? We need another word for remix? We're not exactly Eskimos here, we don't need a thousand terms for "hey I changed your original work".

WHO DOES IT BETTER: GRFX - Chiddy Bang vs. HotKid

Both of these groups do some really fun and creative work with integrated graphics in these live-action music videos. While I'm a much bigger fan of Chiddy Bang musically, HotKid really pulls through with some very complex and innovative editorial cuts alongside their graphic fusion. However, there is something to be said of the casual-cool feel of "Truth", as sometimes subtlety says a lot more than we tend to give credit for.

Chiddy Bang - Truth

HotKid - Yours and Mine

SOUND: The Avalanches make madness...

THE AVALANCHES - Frontier Psychiatrist
First off, I've listened to this song for the past two years or so and am still inspired by this beat and all the elements that seem so different from one another that still find a very original way to work together. It kills me how under-exposed this song is. But this video is on a whole other level of well-orchestrated insanity...

Apparently every coal miner is required to have Chris Penn's Footloose dance nailed before venturing below... I really wish I hadn't admitted knowing what that is.
