Miike Snow – Happy to You


Swedish electro group Miike Snow released their second full-length album Happy To You last March, and it is no short of amazing (featured on my 2012 ‘best of’ list). I had the privilege of seeing them at 930 club in DC last October and they did not disappoint (this post has been a long time coming).

Experience a bit of the magic with a clip from “Bavarian #1 (Say You Will)” below. “Devil’s Work” immediately following is another of my favorite tracks off the stellar sophomore album.

Purity Ring – Obedear (Noah Hydes Magic Sword Remix)


It took a little while for the experimental sound of Purity Ring to grow on me. After inadvertently hearing the Canadian duo live this fall, however, I started to see their appeal. In the same vein as Crystal Castles, their sound is downright eerie – and the kind of thing that if were I to be making a Halloween/Frankenstorm playlist for instance (if? who am i kidding), would will definitely be included.

Check out Noah Hyde’s remix of “Obedear,” as well as the more demure “Fineshrine” PR original below.
