I’ve been super busy lately, so haven’t had time to write about all of the music I’ve been digging. If that makes you sad, you can always read my good stuff over at Shuffler.fm’s blog, Yours Truly, or Subrewind’s site.
So I will leave you with some great new jams and probably the most poingant words to ever be spoken courtesy of comedian Louis C.K.
SPOTLIGHT: Rochelle Jordan Losing
Killer jam. I want to write more about this…one day.

ABADABAD California Birds (Slow Magic Remix)
In honor of my last week in NYC and the show tonight at Cameo Gallery in Brooklyn with Abadabad and Slow Magic, I have a special treat for y’all. Slow Magic gave Boston’s ABADABAD a sparkling, echoey twist on their track “California Birds,” just for the occasion. This one’s a lot of fun, just like the show will be tonight. Be sure to check out the other ABADABAD remixes by Yalls, :papercutz and Keep Shelly in Athens. Oh and if you’re in New York, come to Cameo Gallery tonight!

THE VIDEOS THAT MADE MY WEEK, SO YOU DON’T HAVE TO…
Fuck relationships and dating, I’m married to the music. Happy Sunday! Please enjoy my favorite videos of the week.
#1 WU LYF Heavy Pop (Live on Letterman)
I’ll be in the UK in Feb. We should totally make out…
#2 How To Dress Well Waking Up To Life Sometimes Seems Worse (R. Kelly cover)
I lost my best friend and i sang this song for him. this was a really beautiful and sad experience for me — the video is the only take of the song, the first time i’ve ever played it, culling the lyrics from memory and singing from my soul with and for my boy.
i hope if you’ve lost someone you love you know that this shit is from the bottom of the heart.
#3 Stay+ Dandelion
I’ve actually been really curious about this dude’s live set. CLICK HERE to watch a live recording of Stay+ performing Dandelion in Manchester last December. It’s kind of a shitty vid, but you get the point.
#4 Otem Rellik Live at GNU Experience Gallery
I just booked this guy for a show in Brooklyn at Cameo Gallery on 1/30 with Abadabad, Vensaire and Slow Magic. Going to be a dope show. If you’re in NY, come hang.
#5 Conveyor Muckraker
Cool session of one of the NY band’s new tracks, Muckraker, live from someone’s kitchen. With lots of twinkling lights to set the mood. Dig this.
#6 Ghost Animal Ask Me To Stay (NFOP SESSION)
Stripped down, live Ghost Animal session in Germany? Yes please. Michael Avishay is so adorable. I love his description of the song and his love of Dawson’s Creek.
Toby Kaar Live at Grand Social, Dublin
I wanted to leave you with this last video of one of Ireland’s brightest stars, Toby Kaar, live at The Hard Working Class Heroes 2011 Launch. Guy is sick. I have met so many amazing, musically inclined (and obsessed) Irish folks in recent months, and just this week heard true brilliance from the new anonymous project known as Faws, that I wanted highlight a region that is experiencing their Golden Age of indie electronic. 2012 is Ireland’s for the taking. Nuthin’ but love.
In case you missed it over the weekend…
All the cool shit I was talkin’ about over the weekend while you were out having a life. Enjoy the illustration above from one of my favorite Tumblr’s Eat, Sleep, Draw.

FRIDAYS ON QUAALUDES: AN 11/11/11 MIXTAPE UPDATED
I realized I missed a couple supa dupa stars on my Friday 11/11/11 mixtape, so decided to act like an adult with self respect and dignity and post a complete and updated version.This one is fancy and has artwork. And by artwork I mean a picture from the internet that I put text on top of.
Wrap up your week with some tunes to send you into the clouds. Just in time for 11/11/11, when the stars and moon align to form the face of one of musics’ greats. Luckily, this year the smiling face of Elton John appeared, a sign the world is not going to end anytime soon. If Mick Jagger had appeared instead, well, we would all be fucked. So get into the holiday spirit and celebrate the world not ending with this mix.

THE VIDEOS THAT MADE MY WEEK
#2 SLOW MAGIC Feel Flows
Possibly a glimpse into the master of mysterious, Slow Magic’s world. Or maybe not, maybe it’s all found images. Regardless living in a neon world can’t be that bad. GREAT track too. This jam is definitely the funkiest, of the spaced out variety Slow Magic has dropped thus far. Make that magic real slow bb.
Slow Magic - Sorry Safari (Giraffage Remix)
Slow Magic Sorry Safari (Giraffage Remix)
Go together like peanut butter and jelly. Gluttony at it’s finest. Great way to start your weekend.

Sun Glitters Too Much To Lose (Slow Magic Remix)
I’ma go ahead and call this remix the deep fried Twinkie of my eye. The combo probably isn’t something you would think of on your own, but once you try it, all you can say is, “Daaaaaaaaaaannnnngggg. This is delicious.”
My two favorite electro-pop artists Luxemborg’s Sun Glitters and Denver, CO’s Slow Magic come together for a marriage of signature styles playing off one of Sun Glitter’s very first singles. Seriously amazing. Now all you need is a download…
