James Blake is very much the man of the moment, with his debut self titled album being BNM'd by Pitchfork and being warmly recieved pretty much everywhere that it is heard.

Recently he dropepd by the Da Laatste Show, a Belgian Talk Show, to perform his hit Feist cover, "Limit To Your Love". Check it out for yoruselves above. Something eerily calm and creepy about his performances in my opinion. It's a good thing.

[Listen] Linkin Park - "Wretches & Kings" (Remix) (Feat Get Busy Committee & Divine Styler)

Linkin Park are often up for the remix treatment and always have been with their use of samples and heavy beats paired with Mike's rap like attacking of the vox. Remember that nice Glitch Mob remix a few month's ago of "Waiting For The End". That was a humdinger.

Take a listen to this remix from Get Busy Committee & Divine Styler who have reworked their track "Wretches and Kings" which featured on their most recent album A Thousand Suns, and although the album picked up mixed reviews, this remix has some replay value and got me feeling kinda upbeat after a hard days work. It was also one of the first tracks we got a preview of from their album back in September and brought hope to the fans after a few weaker previews and releases. This remix does it justice too.

Check it out below, while you can.

[Download] Wavves - "Horse Shoes" Feat. Zach Hill

Man, if only all stoner's had this kind of productivity then the world would be, well a far more productive place! Not to say that all people smoke weed, but you know, Nathan WIlliams does. Anyway, check out yet another new track from Wavves, just days after we got "TV Luv Song", this time he's enrolled the help of Zach Hill on drumming duties and the dynamics work well.

The drums range from soft and gentle rolls, to piercing snare thwacks. Towards the end the fills and speed at which Zach is drumming paired with what sounds like some kind of organ sound, (Maybe a pedal of sorts?!), crescendos before coming to a chilled out stall once again. Finally the track builds once more, witht he bridge building towards another onslaught of rapid hitting, fast paced, thumping skins from Zach. Check it out for yourselves below and go from feeling calm and collected to having sporadic thoughts and a hectic mind set! These boys know how to make some noise! 

At this rate we'll have another track by the weekend, or that could just be wishful thinking...

[Listen] Patrick Stump - "Big Hype (Feat. D.A. of Chester French and Driis)"

Okay, so I was feeling on "Cute Girls", but I'm not exactly sure what to make of "Big Hype". Granted, D.A. from Chester French and Driis are featured on the track, but I can't put my finger on what substance this is lacking. I mean, does Patrick Stump really think he's going to pick up where Michael Jackson left off or something? As I touched on briefly in the "Cute Girls" post, Stump isn't really known for pulling off a stellar live vocal performance, which he'd most definitely have to do with all this super belty songs he keeps dropping. Maybe he's had singing lessons and will prove me wrong? Only time will tell. 

Do you think he has what it takes to be crowned the next King of Pop?
