The screaming goat infiltrates popular music

Posted in Comedy, Craze, Music, Viral with tags , , , , , , , , , , , on March 6, 2013 by dc

It seems a ‘screaming goat’ is responsible for remixing a number of well known modern pop ‘classics’. I’m not sure how this has happened or when it’ll stop but here are a few of the goat’s recent mash-up guest spots:

Taylor Swift – I Knew You Were a Goat

Justin Bieber – Baby (Goat edition)

Michael Jackson – Black or White (Goat edition)

Katy Perry – Firework (Goat edition)

Planking, owling, batmanning, horsemanning, putting your cats face in a piece of bread, inserting goat sounds into music videos…

What’s next craze makers?

Justice – On’n’On – new video

Posted in Music with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on January 21, 2012 by dc

Here’s the latest video from Justice‘s Audio Video Disco album which was released October last year. On’n’On sounds like a collaboration between E.L.O and Yello produced by Air in my book – and that’s no bad thing:

Is electro-prog-pop a genre? It should be.

The On’n’On EP is released on 30th January and includes remixes by Brodinski, Erol Alkan, Rick Rubin, TIGA and Video Village.

Daft Punk and Ariel Pink team up on new Tron: Legacy remix EP

Posted in Music with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on December 10, 2011 by dc

On paper it’s a mildly peculiar proposition – Daft Punk teaming up with Ariel Pink on a Tron: Legacy soundtrack remix. In reality it’s rather lovely.

Vinyl International are the record label behind the team up, which features on a newly released 10″ EP called Sky Sailor,  and also includes two new TRS-80 remixes of tracks from Daft Punk‘s score for Tron: Legacy. The tracklist is as follows:

01 Daft Punk – Sky Sailor (feat. TRS-80 and Ariel Pink)
02 TRS-80 – Now Approaching
03 TRS-80 – Night Flashes (10″ Mix)
04 Daft Punk – End of Line (feat. TRS-80)
05 TRS-80 – Blue Fade

The title track (a remix of, Solar Sailer) is the stand out tune and includes some delightfully dreamy new lyrics and vocals from LA underground darling, Ariel Pink. Check it out below:

Free Guilty Simpson / Oh No ‘album’ download

Posted in Music with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , on November 26, 2011 by dc

Last year, Oh No remixed a number of Guilty Simpson tracks using samples from the Now-Again catalogue. Oh No‘s collection Ghettodes is not meant as an album, but as there’s 14 tracks, Stones Throw records are more than happy to call it that.

I hadn’t discovered the collection until today – and I’m pleased to say it’s an absolute stonker and gives Madlib a run for his money.

In fact, there’s not one bad track. And it’s FREE.

The tracklist is as follows:

01 American Nightmare
02 Piglets
03 Riches
04 Futuristic feat. MED
05 What to Do
06 Rob
07 The Ghetto (Interlude)
08 The Ghetto
09 Y’all Scared
10 Dreads
11 Killer
12 Runners feat. Black Milk
13 Raw (Interlude)
14 Kinda

Download the album over at the Stones Throw records website here.
