Icona Pop, "I Love It (Melker Project Remix)"

One of my favorite tracks of the summer was Icona Pop's "I Love It" and it just got remixed by one of my favorite new mash-up/remix artists, Scott Melker.

Cherub - Mom & Dad (album stream)

This album has been on repeat since I came across it. It's worth more than a listen. And if you are digging Cherub you can catch them at the Triple Rock this Thursday. I'll be there.

Alex Pardee curates Halloween issue of Juxtapoz

From Alex Pardee's e-newsletter:

The issue hits newsstands all over the world in a few days on September 11, and I can't wait to show it off. The issue is packed full of artists who have influenced me for years, as well as some newer artists that are creating their own worlds in every aspect of art from scribbling on paper to making video games. Evan & the rest of the Juxtapoz staff were amazingly supportive of letting me showcase who I wanted and how I wanted to do it, which means that the issue has a good-sized fistful of absurdity amidst its Halloweenishness. Pink vomit, human bats, M. Night Shyamalan, the internet, dog dicks, old men, and a comic book artist who tried to give The Joker a vagina are just SOME of the fun things included amongst the articles and art that I have gathered together for this issue.
