Jagwar Ma – “Man I Need (Temples Remix)” & Temples “Shelter Song (Jagwar Ma Remix)”

Oasis frontman Noel Gallagher once said that whenever he runs into his former bandmates, they don’t talk about the possibility of a reunion because they’re too busy talking about Temples and Jagwar Ma.

Angel Haze – “Echelon (Jagwar Ma Remix)”

Last month, young rap spitfire Angel Haze released a new single called “Echelon” online, and now the Australian dance-rock band Jagwar Ma have put together a remix that totals nearly seven minutes, slowing Haze’s rat-tat-tat delivery slightly and lacing it with a percolating tribal beat with an awesomely rubbery Factory Records-style bassline.

Aussie duo Jagwar Ma are psych-pop profiteers. For the video for “The Throw,” the band cuts down the track from its seven minute lucid journey of dance movements — similar to Matthew Dear’s “Black City,” as it goes from David Bowie-gleaned pop into its David Lynchian hymnal conclusion — into three minutes of sepia-toned bouncing… More »
