This week’s Weeklies (aptly entitled Skull and The Hot Mess) is a menagerie or mixed tunes both old and new from my favorite artists. A sweet tune from The Real Tuesday Weld to open the set followed by the riotous new track from Kanye West. Monster may put you off at first but give it another try, it may get you later. The Rapture continuous the rising action of this set followed by synths and keyboards of a Swedish House Mafia and Miike Snow mashup. You guys have to get the Silvia To Ibiza, it’s perf. Then my chillwave fave from Toro Y Moi. There are more tracks to discover and enjoy off this set so hang in there, and enjoy!
To get to the bottom of this Weeklies’ title, I’ll show you this:
If you don’t know what this is, then you better check out Skullcandy‘s new feature in their website. Witness… The Virtual Room. Before you shrug this off, this augmented reality lets you virtually try on their Aviator Headphones. Pretty cool huh? Jay-Z and Rita Ora are reportedly fans of their Roc Nation Aviator series so you better give them a shot! If its not your kind of thing, you can get something else fit for the rebel/dj/partyphile in you. Here’s a shout out to a few of my buddies up in Stance, who makes your argyle socks look like a thing of the past.

♫ Kid Cudi – Revofev | Damn yeah! New Cudi track that keeps playing over and over in my head. Way better than that Bieber kid’s song. Thank God I got over that.
♫ Miike Snow – The Rabbit | I do try to keep up with the news jams that keep coming out but in this one, I’ve been late in hitting the tidal wave. Finally the group will hint us with the rabbit’s meaning of their logo. I’m telling you, check the video below!
♫ Scissor Sisters – Invisible Light | The flamboyant glam-pop might turn some music fans off but this track certainly starts and ends with a bang, even with the added glitter.
♫ Gorillaz – On Melancholy Hill | The second track off their album, Plastic Beach, is as soothing and catchy at the same time. Unfortunately I couldn’t find a decent copy of their music video as their label is notorious for taking down clips, so this mp3 should suffice. Hit me a comment when you find a link to the video.
♫ Metric – All Yours (Eclipse OST) | The movie franchise Twilight gave the music world a little shake and surprise when their New Moon Eclipse OST featured the likes of Thom Yorke and Grizzly Bear. Now once again, they feature Beck, Bat for Lashes, Vampire Weekend and my personal favorite, Metric.

I first discovered Miike Snow on RCRD LBL 2 years ago and look where they are now! This Crookers collab with the group makes eminent the emotional pop and instrumental melodies that Miike Snow has been known for. The beat isn’t as hyped up as previous songs from Crookers but the beat is a juicy mouthful everyone will want a taste of.
