[Listen] The 1975 - "Girls" (The Knocks Remix)

In a year filled with rather exquisite albums, it's often hard to pick favourites and it's at this time of year that people begin to make their shortlists for numerous sites across the web. A stand out for me was the pop-filled, cinematic debut full-length from The 1975. Their recent single "Girls" is just an instant feel good song the moment it hits the speakers. Now, it is Friday after all, and chances are you're getting pretty hyped up for the weekend, and rightly so. There's also a chance you're sat at your desk at work right now and you're already clock watching counting down the minutes until you're free and can go sip on a sweet, sweet beverage. Let's make that wait seem like a little less with the help of a remix of the aforementioned single from The 1975 courtesy of The Knocks. Breathing a new life of disco into an already infectious track you can download it for free below and get the weekend started a little sooner than you might of planned.

The 1975's self-titled debut is out now. 

[Watch] Dragonette - "Let It Go" (Official Video)

Yesterday Canadian electro-pop trio Dragonette unveiled this fun little video for their latest single, "Let It Go". I now have a fear of being abducted and forced to dance around for people in a lab. Great. For those of you who were lucky enough to head out to Coachella last month, you no undoubtedly were smart enough to catch their multiple sets over those weekends. The trio also recently won a JUNO Award for their hit with Martin Solveig, "Hello".

The band will also be hitting the road in North American this fall with The Knocks after a few dates in their homeland of Canada right in the middle of summer. Have a look at dates below. Make sure you grab the remix EP for "Let It Go" if you haven't already.

 Screw you, gray clouds in New York! You're not making this a downer of a day, IT'S FRIDAYYYYYYYY!!!!!

NYC Producer-duo The Knocks released a video today of a new song called, "Sunshine". I especially love the video for its throwback to Who Framed Roger Rabbit?, which was a favorite of mine as a kid.

If you're still in the office, cancel all your meetings, put the TPS reports away, hit play on this video, crank your computer speakers and start dancing around like you just don't care.

Since I know you are gonna be going crazy to this song and want to have it with you everywhere, make sure you grab it below.

[Download] Foster The People - "Pumped Up Kicks (The Knocks Remix)

Pigeons and Planes tipped us off to this remix of Foster The People's "Pumped Up Kicks" courtesy of The Knocks. Basically they took an already great song and just put some more meat on its bones, so to speak. It's definitely much heavier and dancier than the original, so bravo to The Knocks for the slight transformation.
