What's good? In case you haven't noticed, your rezident prezident has not posted music in several weeks. I'm sorry. :D Between coding, enjoying my DJ Hero - Renegade Edition (Thanks m80), school, and various website stuff, I've been kinda busy. But here are some songs that I haven't been able to stop playing lately.
Cuddle Fuddle. I didn't even know this track existed until a few weeks ago, and I am so mad I missed out on "Chunk Of Change." This song is whiny, but I can't get enough of it. It has such a nice backbeat - courtesy of synth mastermind Bo Flex'd - and the vocals just soothe my soul, surprisingly. It's totally worth a listen.

And as a bonus, another one of my favorites from Chunk of Change - EP.

Let's move on. My last track I posted (I think) was Just a Band's Usinibore. Oh god, I hope that wasn't the last one - that was ages ago. Anyway, I've been listening to more Just A Band, and they are damn good. Though some songs are a little too simple or slow for me, some are downright incredible. Here's one of my favorites. It combines tribal "howling" with some amazing synth leads that sound like a slowed down hip-hop. The drums are good, but not Revolution 909 good :P.

And lastly, my current obsession. I've had MSTRKRFT's remix library for quite some time, but only recently have I taken the time to thoroughly listen to each track. Their remix of Buck 65's punk-epica Kennedy Killed the Hat is so beautiful it makes me cry. I'll call it... Dance-Punk. The lyrics don't make any sense, but they don't have to. The guitar is distorted, but not overly-distorted (*cough* DFA79). I love this tune. The other "Rock Remix" isn't all that amazing, so I won't post it.
