The temperature dropped today, by 20 degrees. I also received some things in the mail that I was anticipating. One of them the Young Shields EP from CTFPA that features the addictive Prince cover of "When You Were Mine". Somehow I lost that song when I switched over to my lap top. I've been aching for it for a while as it's no longer available on the hype machine. When I put the CD in my drive and heard those first few happy plunky notes my day was made.
Also, I listened to the first Figurine album, "Transportation + Communication = Love" and it is a fantastic self aware adventure through synthpop sounds and endearingly simple pop songs. Like a loose blueprint for Postal Service songs.
Last, but not least is the Broken Spindles remix of the Good Charlotte song "Get Your Hands Off of My Girl". The sinister synth and beefed up beats make this track enjoyable. Although the concept of me posting a Good Charlotte track kind of makes me kind of question my ethics, but trust me, the pop-punk has been removed and electronic dancy-ness has been placed in its stead.
