Tuesday, July 2, 2013 Studio Soundtracks: U.S. of Nasty
On this too-hot-to-stop Independence Day, I stand for the right to wade under palm trees while wearing some stars and stripes and clutching a cold can of premium American Beer. So you, too, can let freedom ring with this mixtape that I hereby dedicate to the patriotic babe who just wants to party. Because, as Cher Horowitz puts it, ‘… may I please remind you it does not say R.S.V.P. on the Statue of Liberty. Thank you very much.’ Happy 4th of July! -Cat Roif

Wednesday, May 15, 2013 Studio Soundtracks: Random Access Memories
Climb aboard Daft Punk’s sonic starship as the futuristic duo unveil a mix of throwback grooves and trippy dance tracks with their latest album Random Access Memories. It almost serves as a f*ck you to the overindulged electronic sounds on blast at clubs by revisiting the beginnings of disco, paying homage to legend Giorgio Morodor (the mastermind writer/producer behind Donna Summer, Bowie and Debbie Harry classics to name a few). Throw in one particularly addictive ’70s-influenced beat from Pharrell, appropriately titled Get Lucky, into the mix for a time-traveling journey that spans from early funk and disco to dance tracks infused with rock, pop and house. Though the album officially drops 5/21, you can stream it on iTunes now, so get ready to break out the glitter platforms and we’ll meet you on the dance floor…
