Funky Friday

Some killer tracks to start your weekend? Say no more! New Caribou, new Archie Bronson Outfit - who knew they could bring the funk? Kavinsky drops the killer electro jam. We Have Band cover Pet Shop Boys to great effect. Calvin Harris encourages you to relax with his mellow guitar riffs and fine grooves. Madlib the Beat Konducta is leading an excursion to Africa, sound tracked with head nodding goodness. Remixes? Sure - SirBilly is a perennial fave at SIART and he delivers the goods with his remix of Baby Ford's cover of the T-Rex classic. Speaking of covers, how about The Doors, covered by late '70s LA synth band Moebius - originally released in 1979, reissued due to popular demand by dance label Light Sounds Dark. Finally, The XX already kind of groove in an indie pop kind of way - CHLLNGR brings the groove to the forefront. Good stuff. Happy Weekending!
