You’ve Gotta Hear This!

The xx – “VCR” (Four Tet remix)

We’ve already featured the xx remixing a song on our series “You’ve Gotta Hear This!”, it’s now time to hear someone else remix one of their tracks. This is Four Tet, a young man from London who has made quite a name for himself in the electro-rock genre. Just today, he posted a link on his Twitter page to his remix of the xx’s “VCR”. It’s essentially a 9-minute jam that changes right when you least expect it to. Thanks also to Abeano for posting the track and for giving us the idea to embed Soundcloud in this post!

The Morning Benders – “Outlaw Blues” (Bob Dylan Cover)

In just two days, Bob Dylan’s classic album Bringing It All Back Home will be reissued, however it won’t be Dylan singing. Instead, every single song on the album will be covered by various artists. One of the first tracks to be released off of the compilation is the Morning Benders playing Dylan’s “Outlaw Blues”. It’s slow and open, just how the Morning Benders like it. You can download it here at Pitchfork.

Be sure to look for Subterranean Homesick Blues: A Tribute to Bob Dylan’s Bringing It All Back Home on October 5!

Santana: Guitar Heaven, The Greatest Guitar Classics of All Time

by

7.2/10

First off, I must make it known that I was raised on Santana; some of my earliest memories were listening to Santana absolutely shred on the guitar while my mother and I sang along with the lyrics.  Santana is and always will be a guitar God, a musical genius, and, most of all, an inspiration to aspiring Hispanic musicians that they can make it. That being said. I regretfully say that Guitar Heaven, unfortunately, falls very short of its titled status.

Deerhunter: Halcyon Digest

9/10

In one word, Deerhunter’s fourth studio album, Halcyon Digest, is simply amazing. However, one word cannot adequately describe this album. It is forty-six minutes full of pure emotion, shimmering tones, electronic beats, everything you can ask for from an album. It is more mature sounding than Microcastle/Weird Era Cont., more accessible than any of their previous work, and more musically interesting than any of their previous work. In a world of pop sensations, these four musicians have invented their own style of rock that will be enjoyed for many years to come.
