A-Trak – “Push” (Feat. Andrew Wyatt)

Between his work behind the scenes at Fool’s Gold, his world-conquering DJ sets with Duck Sauce and as a solo act, his recent hip-hop crushers with Lex Luger as Low Pros, and his stints as a live DJ for rappers including Kanye West, A-Trak has accrued one of the most impressive careers of any DJ/producer… More »

The 5 Best Videos Of The Week

Lately, we seem to be having on-weeks and off-weeks for videos, and this was an off-week. Last week brought a deluge, and this week, things have slowed down a bunch. But even in the off-weeks, there are plenty of absorbing visions floating around out there, and we’ve got five of them below… More »

W. Pontonen – “Come Smile” (Stereogum Premiere)

W. Pontonen is Miike Snow’s Pontus Winnberg, a musician that is intertwined with the INGRID collective that contains like-minded Swedish indie titans Lykke Li, Peter Bjorn & John’s Björn Yttling, and the Teddybears’ Joakim Ahlund. Recently, he stitched Lykke Li’s “Come Near” with Smile’s “Clean Gloves, Dirty Hands” to form “Come Smile,” a surging, bubbling… More »

Watch Miike Snow On Letterman

On Friday night, expert Swedish pop confectioners Miike Snow appeared on the Late Show With David Letterman, performing recent single “Paddling Out” and bringing a nice lit-up stage setup with them. According to Letterman, their name is just pronounced “Mike Snow,” which is not the way I’ve been pronouncing it in my head these last… More »

Miike Snow – “The Wave” Video

Last month, we posted Swedish popsters Miike Snow’s “Paddling Out” video, in which aliens kidnap earthlings and attempt to transform them into perfect beings. Today, we get the sequel in the form of the band’s video for “The Wave,” in which all those experimented-upon earthlings return and invade. It’s all slapsticky absurdism, but then there’… More »

Miike Snow – “Paddling Out” Video

The sparkling Swedish electro-pop unit Miike Snow are about to drop their new album Happy To You, and we’ve already posted the new tracks “Paddling Out,” “Devil’s Work,” and the Lykke Li collab “Black Tin Box.” And now “Paddling Out” has an expensive, borderline-incomprehensible video in which a slob discovers a pair of magical dancing… More »

Miike Snow – “Devil’s Work”

Two of the three members of Miike Snow work day jobs as the production duo Bloodshy & Avant. They’ve already given us Britney Spears’s “Toxic,” which means they’ve already secured themselves a spot in heaven. But on their own, they aren’t too shabby either. The new Miike Snow track is a crisp, clear piece of… More »

Amadou & Mariam – “Sabali (Miike Snow Remix)” (Stereogum Premiere)

As its title suggests, Amadou & Mariam’s 13-song REMIXES finds a variety of DJs and producers remixing longtime Mali couple (and World Cup vets) Amadou & Mariam’s eclectic Afro-pop. Some of the revisions have been floating around, others are previously unreleased. Three teams give a go at the ’08 favorite “Sibali“: French producer Vitalic, Grey… More »

Øyafestivalen 2010 In Photos

Beyond taking place in beautiful Oslo, Norway one of Øya Festival’s strongest points is its eclecticism: When I attended in 2006 (and met Amrit), I was excited by Enslaved, the Knife, and Morrissey performing in the same space (though not on the same stage at the same time, unfortunately). As you’ll see via Clint Heyer’… More »
