none more twee winter warm up mix

When we're not busy being super ultra-twee here at NMT, we like to pretend we're disc jockeys. You know, those rad individuals in nite clubs who wear headphones, spin records and make the girls and boys go all wobbly with joy when they formulate a perfect mix. Kinda like Alan Freed or Corny Collins...oh, well maybe not that cool. And really it would never work out, I mean, what club would want a dj who starts off a set with Au Revoir Simone covering Rod Stewart and ends with a Murdermore remix of Kells? Only the best club of ever, right? Well, I may not be behind the decks with the lights flashing and bass bumping (pajamas, tiny computer speakers) but I can dream about it... This is an imaginary mix for a cold as ice night - hope it warms you up some.

Au Revoir Simone - "Young Turks" (The Disco Pusher Remix)
Cloetta Paris - "Already Missing You"
PNAU - "Baby" (Breakbot vs. PNAU)
Hellogoodbye - "Here (In Your Arms)" (Young Americans Remix)
Blake Lewis - "Heartbreak On Vinyl" (LA Riots Radio Edit)
The Requesters - "Step By Step" (New Kids On The Block Cover)
Tim & Jean - "Come Around"
Private - "My Secret Lover" (Lifelike Remix)
Justin Timberlake - "My Love" (Diplo Remix)
Bounce Camp = Let You Go" RMX
R. Kelly - "Bump n Grind" (Filthy Jerks Remix)

nmt's winter wonderjamz on ice

Who's ready for more great indie pop? I thought so. This year is picking up right where last year left off with all kinds of wonderful music. I'm particularly excited by the superduper sweetie pie sounds of the unfortunately named Allo Darlin' (pic. above), the dream-like feel of Pill Wonder's ballad, the lovely harmonies and soaring chorus of Sad Day for Puppets' (what is it with these awful names?) song, and the trio of shimmery, glittertwee dance tracks that close out the mix. The more eagle-eyed among you may recognize the one track that doesn't fit with the other fresh, new wonders. I just discovered the ramshackle goodness of Rough Bunnies very recently and wanted to toss them in there just in case you hadn't heard them yet. They're really good! Enjoy the mix and hold on tight because the rest of 2010 is going to be awesome!!

The Drums - "I Felt Stupid"  
Allo Darlin' - "The Polaroid Song"
