Princeton

Friday

mp3:Plump DJs – Beat Myself Up (Don Diablo ReRub)

For someone who recently confessed to not being a big remix fan it’s surprising how many I’m enjoying at the moment. Plump DJ’s last single has been given a reworking by Dutch Super DJ of the moment Don Diablo. The result is big, brash and almost Daft Punk like.

For Fans Of: Daft Punk, Plump DJ’s, Justice.

buy: Beat Myself Up  12″ / Download

Saturday

mp3: Princeton – Leonard Woolf

Princeton deserves to follow in Vampire Weekend’s footsteps and become the college rock sensation of 2009. This song is perfect. Beautiful, uplifting melodies. Taken from the best debut EP of last year, ‘Bloomsbury’.

For Fans Of: Vampire Weekend, The Kinks, Peter Gabriel.

buy: Bloomsbury EP  paypal / iTunes

Sunday

mp3:Bonnie Prince Billy – The World’s Greatest (R Kelly Cover)

It’s hard to express the amount of respect I have for Bonnie Prince Billy, one of the hardest working, highest achieving performers in Folk. He even records music to relax it would seem. I’ve rediscovered this gem, an R-Kelly cover, taken from his 2007 covers album ‘Ask Forgiveness’. The sweet female voice is that of Meg Baird in case you were wondering.

buy: Ask Forgiveness from   iTunes / rough trade

Princeton – ‘The Waves’ video

Posted in Music Releases, Music Video, Tracks with tags , , , , on February 24, 2009 by musicmuleblog

Princeton if you haven’t heard them are from California and make glorious, intelligent sunshine pop. I could probably make music as uplifitng as this if I lived in California. No that’s an outright lie I’d still suck.

This is the still oven hot new video for their song ‘The Waves’ taken from surely the best debut EP of 2008 ‘Bloomsbury’.  The EP is about a collective of literary figures and artists including, to name a few, Virginia Woolf, John Maynard and Desmond McCarthy, that met regularly in the Bloomsbury area of London around 1904 to discuss art, literature and to sleep together of course!

Princeton are still unsigned (not for long I suspect) but you can buy the EP straight from the band through paypal or through iTunes if it serves you better. I paid $7 for mine back when the pound was actually worth something and they sent it all the way from The States themselves, making me feel a little like I’d swindled them but now thanks to Gordon Brown and co you don’t have the same worry!
