Featured Download: Jogger - Nice Tights (Nosaj Thing Remix)
Friends of Friends Remixed is out July 28th on Friends of Friends Music.
Nosaj Thing is one of the fresher producers we've seen this year - he runs with Aether, Flying Lotus and the rest of that L.A. crew. Like Fly-Lo, Nosaj steps away from a fluid and atmospheric album to drop his hardest-hitting stuff in his remixes, and it's probably smart from a marketing standpoint: the remixes are more likely to come at us as one-off listening affairs. Don't let that cheapen the track, though - "Nice Tights" is thrown into the time-stretch machine, sampled into mesmerizing bits and pieces, pushed from funkier origins into a dark, deep place. All things considered, we dig Nosaj's work from either side. Oh, and go back and grab that Friends of Friends split - with Daedelus and Jogger, you'll find a superstar ushering in a superstar-to-be.

Featured Review: Discovery - LP

The overuse of auto-tune in popular music has led rap’s mogul Jay-Z to say “Enough”—but that hasn’t fazed these Brooklyn hipsters. Discovery, the new indie pop duo comprised of Rostam Batmanglij (producer of Vampire Weekend) and Wes Miles (vocalist of Ra Ra Riot) have created an album so overdone in auto-tune that Kanye West will probably ask for credit. Maybe I’m inferring too much, but it seems that Batmanglij is strategically using this proven method for pop success. His production with Vampire Weekend was compared to Paul Simon’s Graceland, which was considered one of the most successful pop albums ever. Now with LP his use of auto-tune feels like a ploy to make a pop record. For those unfazed by auto-tune get ready to discover, but for those who feel like Jay-Z, well—we heard it all before.
