Random follow-up post for a rainy day in DC.
Another great song from the new Daft Punk album:
I’m going to start posting my favorite songs on here instead of only on my gchat status. At this point, I promise no grand revival of indieprep, but I hope to start once again sharing great music with everyone on a regular basis!
And on to the music…As usual, RAC kills it:
Capital Cities – Safe And Sound (RAC Mix)
Heard this song this morning on my way to play a little golf, and I had to share it. Perfect summer song that has a little bit of a disco feel to it.
Enjoy this jam, and happy 4th of July!
Gigamesh – Don’t Stop

Today’s SOTD comes courtesy of my new favorite remix master, Viceroy, and one of my favorite bands of 2012. Ghost Beach is a New York duo who have put out several awesome songs this year, although they have yet to release an EP. Viceroy takes their latest single and turns it into pure pop glory, fitting perfectly into the great summer weather we’re experiencing right now. Check out “Miracle” below, and follow the link up above for the rest of Viceroy’s awesome remixes.

So unfortunately when our lives get busy, as they have recently, posting new music here is usually one of the first things to suffer. Hopefully we won’t go so long without again for a while! (Also my office has recently blocked all streaming music and music blogs…making it even harder for me to keep up!)
You’ve seen Remix Artist Collective (RAC) remixes on here before, and they crush it again with Princeton‘s “Grand Rapids.” Princeton is an indie-pop band from LA, and I especially love this RAC remix because most remixes take a more low-key song and throw a house or rap beat beneath it. This remix does the opposite: it takes a distinctly indie-electro-pop song, and takes it down a notch. It’s subdued, and laid back, and is the perfect sound for relaxing outside as the weather warms up.

(Consequence of Sound premiered this a couple of weeks ago by the way – nice work guys.)
I will also note…Princeton‘s album Remembrance of Things to Come from February 2012, where the original comes from, is also fantastic. And you can listen to the original album here, if you’re interested:
