The Orchard’s Music Newsletter: The Daily Rind – June 17th, 2009

June 17, 2009 Artist News No Comments

Welcome folks, to another Daily Rind Newsletter! We’re bursting at the seams this week when it comes to free tracks, but first let’s take a look at our Featured Artists. First up we’ve got soul legend Lee Fields, with his incredible Truth & Soul debut, My World. Grab the lead leak “Love Comes and Goes” below, along with a brand new remix of the title track from Stones Throw artist Aloe Blacc. Our other featured artist this week is an exciting new signing from Frenchkiss Records (yes, the label that brought us Passion Pit and The Dodos), The Antlers, with their already critically acclaimed LP Hospice.

Now on to that immense batch of free tracks – there’s catchy indie-pop from Generationals, reggae-tinged indie rock from Sean Bones, one of Wu-Tang’s own deities U-God, and another type of deity in certain circles – Mike Gordon from Phish, who guests on the amazing new track “Arc of the Sun” by Assembly of Dust. Also make sure you pick up the brand new funky sounds of Budos Band and everything else up there! We have some great new videos from Swedish sirens The Sweptaways and the Evil Genius DJ Green Lantern as well, along with plenty more goodies Bubbling Up, In Stores Now and Coming Soon!

Wired.com Releases (F)Remix From Mixologist Cassettes Won’t Listen

June 15, 2009 Artist News No Comments

The time has come for fans of Cassettes Won’t Listen’s original music and remixes alike to be satisfied. On Wednesday, Wired.com/Underwire released a free downloadable e.p. from Cassettes Won’t Listen featuring remixes of Mr. Lif, The Death Set, The Dears, The Faunts, Christine, and Bisc 1. This (f)remix is sure to please long time fans of Cassettes Won’t Listen who are used to CWL setting a high bar for quality remixes of favorite songs. To download the album, hit up www.cassetteswontlisten.com/fremix.zi

Fans of Cassettes Won’t Listen’s original creations will be satiated by the release next week of Into the Hillside, the first full-length from CWL. This instrumental composition consists of sunny songs that reflect Jason Drake’s recent move to Los Angeles. On the strength of its 70′s and 80′s electronic groove pop vibe, this album has the ability to become the soundtrack to summer road trips for years to come.

CWL has also teamed up with Future Audio Workshop (makers of the famed DeadMau5 app) to launch a brand new iPhone app of his own. Users will be able to emulate their favorite remix artists by taking the stems of tracks from Into the Hillside and mixing them into their unique creation. This application inserts a personal touch into the listening process and allows fans of Cassettes Won’t Listen to become a part of the project.

The first single, also entitled “Into the Hillside,” has seen its share of attention, receiving an exlusive release by The Tripwire, and being featured on Rcrd Lbl and Xlr8r.

Guilty Pleasures, Here We Come!

November 18, 2008 Artist News No Comments

Various Artists
Guilt By Association Vol. 2 / Engine Room Recordings / BUY

While we here at the Rind feel pretty firmly that one need not feel guilty for liking cheesy pop songs (seriously, you should see some of our playlists), the idea behind this second volume of covers from Engine Room is a great one – indie artists cover their favorite songs that others might deem “un-indie” and therefore “uncool.”

We’re going to ignore the subjectivity of all that and get to the songs. Move over Marilyn Manson, because Shara Worden (My Brightest Diamond) delivers a totally creepy version of the Soft Cell classic “Tainted Love,” making it sound more like a spy theme than a new wave song. Check it out here. Speaking of new wave, Rafter’s take on the OMD hit “If You Leave” is sparse in a good way, while Cassettes Won’t Listen offers an electro-poptastic version of INXS’ “Need You Tonight.” … Continue Reading
