So I was planning on posting on Bang Gang DJ's by the end of the week BUT yesterday they released a ridiculously amazing remix of Kicking and Screaming by the Presets which I wanted to share with y'all.

So I had the distinct privilege of seeing Wallpaper perform twice during their jaunt around the city. The duo of Arjun Singh (drums) and Ricky Reed (vox and keyboard) hail from the beloved city of Oakland, California. You may remember Oakland for blessing us with such gems as Scraper Bikes and Keak da Sneak.
So take Chromeo, add a bunch of Pfunkt, little bit o' Biggie and some general ridiculousness and you have birthed a stellar brainchild which makes you want to hump inanimate objects. Wallpaper, thankfully, will be back in New York this week for CMJ - likely wearing some sort of gold lame and making people dance. You should definately try to get to the shows. I can safely say that my evenings at Wallpaper shows have been some of the most amusing I've had in NEw York - and if you're lucky, you might have Mr. Reed grinding all up on you by the end of the night.

Friday night I was able to go see the British band Polytechnic at the mercury lounge on friday whom I discovered at Camden Crawl this year. I actually bought their album right away after hearing them and... thats a rarity. I was expecting it to be pretty empty since no one seems to know who they are, and I was right. It's ok because it seemed like they were doing a private show for just me. We started talking to Dylan the guitarist/lead singer and they were really chill guys. We tried to meet up at a few parties during the weekend, but it didn't seem to happen. Nevertheless, you all missed out bc they are good and you were most likely not there and I believe you can dance to their tunes. If you can't, then you are not fun.

Thursday night and i'm exhausted for basically no reason and watching Casper for memories sake (and since its on and everything else on TV sucks balls and I'm actually a retarded 10 years old girl). Nevertheless this band, Health has caught my attention. They seem to be gaining much recent popularity and I say rightfully so. They are pretty much effectively constructed noise-rock or whatnot, but then have become popular in the dance world. Everyone seems to be remixing their shit and it sounds good! There is even a myspace page, Disco//Health that simply just consists of remixes of their tunessss. Pretty sweet. If my band, Awkward Ponies, ever become famous (and we will considering all we have is a completely original concept and no actual music composition but i think me on the synthesizer/keyboard should be enough) I want a remix page made. Remember that. And make it sassy. Thanks.
Glitter Pills - Health
Triceratops - Health
Crimewaves - Health vs Crystal Castles
Tabloid Sores - Health (Nosaj Thing Remix)
