The Wombats – 1996

wombats2

Those goofy Wombats strike again with a new vid for latest single “1996”. The track is “straight Wombats”, its a little bit kooky, a little bit “tongue and cheek”, but it’s also a terrific pop song. Throw on your vans and put your best pogs at stake cause it’s “1996”

Deadmau5 – Raise Your Weapon (Alternate Version)

deadmau5raiseyourweapon

We put b3sci to bed for Thursday with this new chilled version of “Raise Your Weapon” Deadmau5 has been at work on. Gone are the dubstep, and electro refs, and most of what’s left is Greta’s excellent vocal and a spare electric piano. Listen.

Jason Burns – Back To You

jasonburns

We LOVE this. CLEVELAND artist Jason Burns’ “Back to You” has been around for a minute but we’re just getting back into now via our pal Anthony Valadez, who spun the tune this week on his late night KCRW show. “Back to You” is major (that beat is beautiful, crazy, sick, all that, love the A. Keys sample!) but it should also be said, Mr. Burns reps our hometown. We had NO IDEA music like THIS was being made back home (UK Garage-influenced 2 step in the CLE!)! Cleveland, we love you and we miss you!

Young Jeezy – F.A.M.E. (Feat. T.I.) (Prod. J.U.S.T.I.C.E. League)

jeezy-fame

The two Atlanta giants trade bars on top a tough new J.U.S.T.I.C.E. League beat. Jeezy’s seemingly forever delayed TM 103 is set to get yet another release date on Monday. Who’s taking bets that this won’t be when the album actually drops either. The Passion of the Jeezy. Tip, sounds re-focused, on this his first high profile post-prison feature. His rhymes are sharp and interesting and his more laid back delivery on the track complements Jeezy’s more manic verses.

Benjamin Francis Leftwich – Shine

benjaminfrancisleftwich

b3sci fav Benjamin Francis Leftwich returns with one of his catchiest tracks to date, new single “Shine”. The track serves as further example of Leftwich ‘s excellent sense of construction and restraint in melody, rhythm, and arrangement. Great tune.

Florence + The Machine – Shake It Out (The Weeknd Remix)

florenceshakeitout

Zane Lowe just dropped the premiere of The Weeknd’s remix of Florence’s latest single “Shake It Out” and now you can stream it live on b3sci. It’s moody, it’s ethereal, it almost sounds of a space age spaghetti western. It’s The Weeknd, it’s Florence, it’s b3sci.

Lana Del Rey – Video Games (White Lies Remix)

lanadelrey2

White Lies take every blogger’s fav pair of lips to The Factory circa 1981. The mix doesn’t really sound like Lana nor does it really sound like White Lies either, layer upon layer of analogue synths and drum loops. The result is a sharp sounding remix that would have even pissed Pete Hook cutting a serious rug.
