ARCADE CHRISTMAS!!

Posted in Music with tags , , , , , on 12/21/2010 by not cliff

 

Arcade Fire’s 2002 Christmas Album was recorded well before the band’s
first EP and the full length Funeral and never officially released. It
was recorded at a party in Win and Régine’s apartment, and Win claims
that he is not singing in the recordings. Instead, his friends imitate
his voice. Copies were distributed to friends and family of the
band…

The album features a quirky mix of holiday covers and early versions
of original songs some of which were later released as part of
Arcade Fire EP and Funeral.

1. “Chestnuts Roasting” 3:09
2. “Oh Holy Night” 4:30
3. “Jinglebell Rock” 1:19
4. “A Very Arcade Xmas” 8:09
5. “It Clouded Fully (Brendan)” 1:01
6. “The Spartans (Brendan)” 2:57
7. “In the Attic (Boston)” 6:15
8. “Asleep at the Wheel” 4:13
9. “Old Flame” 3:55
10. “Submarine” – 2:47
11. “In the Backseat” 5:08
12. “Headlights” – 4:12

Top Tracks of Ohh Ten

Posted in Music with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on 12/14/2010 by not cliff

Not necessarily the most innovative tracks, but definitely some my favorites from 2010’s long list of blah.

Beach Fossils- Daydream

Just gets me everytime. Joy Division lives.

Dead Weather- Hustle & Cuss

Jack White’s latest supergroup’s 2nd LP “Sea of Cowards” was a huge sleeper, due to the first LP “Horehounds” being such a letdown. You can hear them saying “channel John Paul and lets play what fucking kicks”.

Beach House- Zebra

Its by no means going to win awards or accolades, but its my favorite track on this wonderful album. 

LCD Soundsystem- Dance Yourself Clean

Didn’t love this the first time, but thats every LCD record… it grows. Maybe jump to 1:48 and then get ready to blow an eardrum/speaker at 3:08. Dope.

Harlem- Gay Human Bones

Just plain good.

Arcade Fire- Sprawl II

I love the original Arcade sound, but this one slipped in due to them delving into a more electro type mode. Plus I have a crush on that chick.

C-Lo- Fuck You

The most mainstream track, but damn its catchy. Try the CastleVania Remix for a more danceable version, if thats possible.

Tame Impala -tie- Solitude is Bliss/Remember Me

I wanted to put another Tame Impala track on the list I loved this LP so much, but Solitude is just the right amount of heavy with cosmic vocals.

Wolfgang Gartner- Illmerica

My one real dance track here, jump to 1:00 and take the hard and loud way out.

Sleigh Bells- Rill Rill

With a STRONG simple sample from Funkadelic and well placed hip hop drums, Sleigh Bells killed this one.

Who said it had to be a top 10 list?!

Cult- Go Outside

God almighty this song was on every mixtape I made during the spring and summer this year. Just a perfect slow, feet up with a grin track.

Warpaint- Undertow

This one is my favorite late night track from 2010, just makes everyone listen. Really jumps to the next level around 2:29.
