Seinabo Sey - Younger (Kygo Remix)

Seinabo Sey, up and coming Swedish singer, remixed by the 22 year-old producer from Norway, Kygo. She mixes pop with some soul, and Kygo throws in even more pop with a beat and making it more of a daily, upbeat, pop song rather than the soft soul that her voice brings to the original.

Hotel California by Eagles from the album: The Very Best Of The Eagles (Disc 1)

"Relax," said the night man. “We are programmed to receive. You can check out any time you like, but you can never leave!"

One of my favorite “oldies” songs, I’ll always remember when I pulled out my mom’s vinyl copy for the first time. It was was then that I really realized that listening to vinyl (usually) meant listening to the album straight through. Because although I like (no. 2 hit) “Hotel California,” the other hits from the album like “New Kid in Town” (no. 1) and “Life in the Fast Lane” don’t do much for me. 

I come from a childhood of tapedecks, but my personal music collection is either CDs or MP3- where you can listen to whatever song you want without listening to your least favorite from the same album. It wasn’t until that moment of wanting to reach and change the song that I realized how great (in my generation’s eyes) we have it. I do, however, love vinyl more than your average from the tape-CD-MP3 generation.

Radiation City

When a jazz classic from 1954 can be remixed, covered, and modernized, I’m all over it. You should be too. Radiation City has sounds that remind me of a nice breeze. From their Facebook page: “Your parents’ record collection spent some time on the Event Horizon, and this came out.”  They list Flaming Lips, Dusty Springfield, Beach Boys and house music as some of their influence, all of which combined just make me more curious and eager to hear their creations.

TIME: “charmingly evocative”
