The latest batch of sweetness

So unless you've been a scared ostrich for the past 6 months, you've heard about Duck Sauce, a collab of A-Trak and Armand Van Helden. More specifically, you've heard at least while weekend jamming:

Duck Sauce - aNYway
but probably not the original funky disco house jam
Final Edition - I can do it (any way that you want)

and the tight video

Also, I just picked up (via rcrd lbl) a Woven Bones jam. Imagine grungier Kurt Vile vocals deep with heavy reverb along with guitar distortion that rivals bangers that belongs in an apartment with a 100 sweaty northwest teenagers from the 1990's. They are touring the west coast/side/region of the US and I'm waiting for them to put their back towards the setting sun and make way for my way.

Woven Bones - If You're Gold, I'm Gone

There is also this Alan Palomo jam (why did I miss him when he was in town!) using Ed Droste's voice to overarch the melodic, andante, dreamy-eyed instrumentals. I don't know if the Lo-Fi is intentional, but it kind of sounds like something Pretty Lights would put out and only make a bootleg copy of.

Grizzly Bear - Cheerleader (Neon Indian 'Sega Genesis P-Orridge' Mix)

What else to unload, oh how about confirmation that Michael Jackson wrote some of the music for Sonic the Hedgehog 3? Wow. In a nutshell, he didn't give/get the credit because he thought the sound quality was poor in video game form relative to records/CD's as well as the whole children issue.

Not to ruin the video, but speaking of kids and Grizzly Bear and to make a Venn diagram of this post...

I heard the Neon Indian remix on Pitchfork--this guy's production is so kitschy I love it!
