The Katy Perry Remix To End All Katy Perry Remixes

We randomly came across this remix of "Hot N Cold" by someone named Daddy Nino (or Niño, perhaps? It's hard to tell WHEN PEOPLE USE ALL CAPS ALL THE TIME), while looking for new and inventive ways of making Katy Perry listenable. Holy mother of Christ, this remix is fucking amazing. We basically sat in front of the computer making more and more confused faces until it ended and we started it again. If Katy Perry sounded like this all the time she would have easily been our breakout artist for 2008*. Instead, it takes some kid making YouTube remixes with Garageband to make one of the highest selling new female artists around not make us want to take a chainsaw to our nether regions. Who ever said the world made sense (we believe it may have been Confucius, but that is neither here nor there, really).

Amaxing (typo, keeping it).

*While being amazing, "Hot N Cold (Daddy Nino remix)" does not make up for "I Kissed a Girl".

Everything with You

I think that I must be living under a rock because all that I’ve been listening to of late are albums that I’ve had in the collection for a while. What’s going on 2008? With the exception of School of Seven Bells’ Alpinisms and Cut Copy’s Ghost Colours -- it might as well be 2001 for me. I’m hoping for something big to WOW me in 2009.

One album that everyone should take a listen to this coming February is the full-length debut album by the Pains of Being Pure at Heart. They are currently on tour in the UK supporting The Wedding Present. A dose of dreamy noise pop never hurt anyone!

Check out their latest single and video:

Early 2009 Tour Dates
2/7 - New York City - Mercury Lounge *#
2/8 - Philadelphia, PA - Kung Fu Necktie *
2/9 - Washington, DC - Black Cat Backstage *
2/11 - Chicago, IL - Schubas *
2/12 - Toronto, ON - Neutral *
2/15 - Boston, MA - Middle East *

* = w/ The Depreciation Guild
# = w/ Cause Co-Motion!

And on a final note, as I come out of blogging hibernation I must declare that as a native New Yorker, I never thought that I would say this…but I would rather brave the frigid cold in Minneapolis this weekend to go to Too Much Love and dance than to forfeit myself to the mellow weekends that I’ve been having recently. But yes, it’s true. I want to go to a dance party and really DANCE! Where is the dance? My Cousin Roy is bringing the dance this weekend to the Twin Cities.

I also welcome suggestions of what I should take a listen to. SHARE WITH US!
