There has been a few remixes I’ve been meaning to talk about, but due to shortage of time I’ve been unable to; a few of them have been a big surprise to me, some others just came sent out of heaven due to the dry spell of music releases on December.
The first Remix is by the, oh so well known band Hot Chip. Many music blogers have been going gaga over them, but you know me it takes me a while to digest, if I ever do.

The second remix is form a band who I love so much and was dieing to watch live, but the prices were ridiculous, plus their last CD wasn’t that impressive; however, I don’t know if you’ve ever heard of Erol Alkan; I had the fortune of getting one of his old mixes on a copy of Mix Mag back in Florida and I have to tip my hat to him, this remix makes me so happy, (no other words to describe) he definitely made the magic happen and made a regular song rock.

The Liars is another band who when I got their CD I was in love with their sound; however I was not able to be captivated, it felt like they were missing a spice to be completed. You can always count on Crystal Castles to come to the rescue and make it their own sound, it overhauled a good song into an even better one.

I understand that if I followed trends I would probably would be writing about the CD release of Radiohead’s In Rainbows, but I’ve heard the CD so many times that when I heard the remix of Bjork's song "Unravel" I was totally obsessed over it for weeks.

I have nothing to say about this, it is probably a song that I’m soon to regret I eve said I loved but so far I’m not quite there yet, so listen and enjoy.
