The Morning LineUp (f. No Doubt, the xx, Daft Punk, Pinback & More) Tris C August 16, 2012 Music We know we can’t get a handle on all the new music that comes out in a given day so we’ve neatly packaged together some of the best indie & alternative tracks you might have missed in the past 24 hours. The XX – “Chained” (Panic City Remix) The track entitled Chained, a second sip of the highly anticipated album release entitled Coexist, is not only a powerful song stand-alone, but has taken the remix world by storm. This one happens to embrace the balance between the original storyline of the track and the new path it takes with Panic City as its designated driver. The Nervous Wreckords – “Classy Girls” As the first song ever written by the group, The Nervous Wreckords rekindle the oh-so-familiar song and dance of an independent woman who has a mind of her own and knows how to take care of her man as well as herself. Its up-tempo, old-school rock-and-roll feel relays the image of a 1970s woman with design. Don’t forget to check out their album entitled Let Them All Talk, to be released in eight weeks. Theresa Andersson – “Fiya’s Gone” Now I could be stereotypical as a native New Orelanian and say that somehow including a band/jazz/soul feel to everything that emerges from the city makes you legit, but I digress. This Swedish born phenomenon by the name of Theresa Andersson, mastering her skill as a multi-instrumentalist, embodies the true culture of New Orleans through her live performances and instrumental orchestrations of horns, strings, and drums, especially in this track. Pinback – “Proceed to Memory” After a five year absence following 2007’s Autumn of the Seraphs, the Indie rock duo Pinback will be surfacing with their first album since entitled Proceed to Memory debuting on October 16th. Check out the album’s premiere of their main squeeze featuring Rob Crow’s vocals, becoming the next earworm you can not rid yourself of via RollingStone. Stream: Pinback – “Proceed to Memory” No Doubt – Settle Down (Baauer Remix) Brooklyn producer Baauer, straying from his usual club bangers, highlights this already greatly praised track entitled Settle Down. In light of No Doubt‘s return this season, he uses his sub-heavy sound to elevate this track, displaying a different picture of damn near perfection. If you have no idea who this creative individual is, understand him through his SoundCloud. Gypsy & the Cat – “Sorry” The Australian Indie combo Gypsy & the Cat smash blogs with their new track entitled Sorry. This feel good track is definitely one to cruise under the sun and vibe to. Interestingly, it is not lyrics that draw attention to this track, but its groovy hipster vibe it conveys. The track will be released officially August 17th. Interested in seeing the visual for this video? See it here. Guy Sebastian – “Battle Scars” (f. Lupe Fiasco) Aussie singer/songwriter, Guy Sebastian, teams up with Lupe Fiasco for this track entitled Battle Scars, available on iTunes August 10th. Not really sure if it will be on Lupe’s album entitled Food and Liquor II: The Great American Rap Album Pt. 1, due to hit stores September 25th, but I wouldn’t put it out of mind’s sight either. If you dig the cut, make sure to follow up with the storyline on the official video here. Atlas Genius – “Trojans” (Fred Falke Radio Edit) Living mostly off the grid in 2011, Fred Falke shakes things up and is back making a major statement as always. Not that the song entitled Trojans needed a revamp as one of the most well liked songs by Atlas Genius, it certainly revs up its dance ability to follow the trend that most artists are doing this year. Between the synths and the dance claps, this remix has the potential to hit the dance waves of clubs soon. Keke Palmer – “Dance Alone” To be honest, when I first saw this I thought, not another disillusioned Disney kid. Despite my better judgement, and the fact that I had all of five minutes to spare, I gave the track a whiff. To my surprise it is actually paints a woman of growth and maturity; not the estranged pop storyline that all of the “artists” seem to detour towards when branching as a Disney pick up line. Exclusively debuting on Singersroom after her teaser clip, check out the stream below. Keep in mind the track will be available on iTunes August 21st. Daft Punk – “Something About Us” (Xristo Remix) Not that Daft Punk has any problem kicking things up a notch for themselves, Xristo spins the track to tell a different story. This take explains itself in synths, pulses, and creative orchestration. Take a gander.
