TheThursday Bundle: 011217
TheThursday bundle, just in time for the weekend with artwork inspired by TheWeeknd’s second mixtape, ‘Thursday.’ A mouthful, I know, but luckily an earful, too!
Alicia Keys: Sweet F'in Love
When Alicia Keys talks (about anything), especially about sweet f'in love, you listen, loud and clear, with your undivided attention. Call me Vincent van Gogh because my ears are for you, Alicia! I'll refrain from chopping one off and presenting it to you as a gift, but you know what I mean. This Kaytranada-produced track was uploaded to Key's "other half" Swizz Beats's Soundcloud yesterday. Super sweet and also serves as a reminder, we are one month out to Valentine's Day, lovers.
Cosmo's Midnight - History
I have a history with Cosmo's Midnight. Unfortunately, it's not that unique. In fact, it's just a mild-to-wild obsession for the talented, forward-thinking electronic act, so I'll just file back into line with everyone else and keep my thoughts to myself. **Whispers "Such a defining start to these Sydney tastemakers' year, don't you think?" to the person in front of me**
Triana Park - Line
Riga-based band Triana Park plays contagious, uproarious and danceable rock music, sometimes going off the course blurring between hiphop traits and subtle pop hues. Undoubtedly in charge, soloist Agnese’s ever-powerful vocals and gaga-esque visual flair are worth a mention as well. Don't drop the "Line" on missing their latest single, below.
Teachers - Mannequin In Heat (Bontan Remix)
These fucking mannequins are apparently in heat year-round. Good for them. The latest to douse the Teachers infectious tune with gasoline is UK-based producer Bontan. This guy has notched up an impressive set of achievements that would leave most old school acts green with envy. Or in this case, red with lust. Color me intrigued!
MOONZz - Cheers (Billy Presley Remix)
If Simon says "follow the leader," then follow the direction of MOONZz. You'll be in great company, too. Gents like Billy Presley who remixed the astral being that is "Cheers," will be in tow and I'm happy to take things literal by raiding the closest mini-bar and toasting to the otherworldly (a.k.a. "us").
