August 2014 Chart

Annunaki
August is one of my least favorite months of the year (sorry — but fwiw it’s opposite my favorite month [February] so there’s maybe some sort of symmetry going on?). Anyway, in light of that fact I’m not terribly enthusiastic about this chart. Not that I dislike the songs or anything (actually, some of them are great — and overall this chart has some real excellent stuff), but I think due to this summer malaise I just can’t get as into it. Eight songs is pretty short, two of the songs featured are remakes of previous versions (“Afterlife” remixed by Flume and “Insecptor Norse” pumped up with Little Boots’ vocals). And to make matters worse, there were a few songs that weren’t on SoundCloud or YouTube so you can’t even check out everything in one place. Let’s aim for a better September…

Artist Song Name Remixer
Arcade Fire Afterlife Flume Remix
I love how weird Flume makes this song. When I first saw it posted I thought it was too good to be true.
Ercola Follow Me (feat. Annie)
Oldie (~2008) but goodie with vocals by my fav Annie
Todd Terje Inspector Norse Little Bootleg
Little Boots turns what is already an incredible song even more incredible-er
ZHU Faded The Magician Remix
Michael Jackson A Place With No Name
I love how this song echoes one of my all-time favorite songs: “A Horse With No Name.”
Lana Del Rey Ultraviolence Prins Thomas Diskomiks Remix
Nico & Vinz Am I Wrong
The video is super inspirational and all that, but I gotta admit that when I first heard this song I thought it had to do with a broken heart and loved it much more…
SBTRKT New Dorp. New York (feat. Ezra Koenig)
