No Art of Noise this time. I promise, soon. However, APC published some _awesome_ stuff this week that I want to share with you. First up, another video story...

A couple weeks ago I pointed to You Say Party in particular their video for "Lonely Lunch" which told an sf-nal story with the song as soundtrack. Now comes WAX TAILOR feat Charlotte Savary with "Dragon Chasers", which is a brilliant bit of noire down-tempo sound and video. Like all good noire, it's dark and mysterious and gets by less on action than on the way people _look_ at each other and things. Also, nice nods to the graphic novel form.

Simon Iddol did a little five-track minimix to promote a party in Budapest that he was DJing. The track list is there and all are pretty rocking. I have a problem listening to Jay-Z's "99 Problems", but the rest of the mix is good, with some really brilliant combinations including two surprising Beatles remixes. I guess getting their stuff on iTunes means we'll hear more Beatles mash-ups in the coming months.

Another original+remix pairing, but this time I'll take the original over the remix. The song "Be My Animal" is by The Good Natured (http://www.facebook.com/thegoodnatured) and part of what makes it pleasing to my ear is the way the lead vocalist, Sarah McIntosh, is featured. She's got a potentially powerful voice, and though it's a bit too autotuned and clipped here, you get the sense she's got some power to show off. The remix loses a lot of her vocals; it's not bad on its own - just not as good.

I can't remember if I blogged DJ Lobsterdust's amusing mash of Men At Work vs 50 Cent before. The mix is a couple years old, but it's gotten a new video treatment, so it's worth a (re)visit.

It's been a long time since Bootie was good. It's been nearly forever since they were this AWESOME. These are two hour-long dance mixes that contain more clever blends and neat mashes than you can shake a stick at. I started playing this and narrating some of the great combos for MizA who eventually got enough time to play the mixes and started naming combos back to me. It's a blast. Sadly there's no tracklist I can find to verify against.
