The Tracks We Wore Out


Pitchfork just (somewhat prematurely) released their list of the top 500 tracks of the decade as part of their ongoing P2K: The Decade in Music series. But I guess someone had to kick off the end of the decade lists that are sure to start permeating our lives starting now. Regardless, it’s quite a feat for anyone to take on. When these things do inevitable come around, I love to turn them into playlists for my own bizarre entertainment. You see, I love lists, of any kind really. And these are my favorite kind. So I thought I’d take my playlist of Pitchfork’s top 50 tracks of the decade and put them up here. I’m sure someone will come along and put up all 500 somewhere, but that level of obsessiveness is for another fool to deal with. Enjoy.

Guns Don’t Kill People, Lazers Do!


These two unassuming dudes pretty much do whatever they want. And that’s good for us, because it’s usually fun as shit. Diplo and Switch‘s new album as Major Lazer came out this week and it’s insane. But in a good way. And tomorrow night will hopefully be equally as insane as they’re set to perform in their hometown here in Philly. It’s a FREE(!!!) show at the Electric Factory with A-Trak. If you haven’t already signed up for your ticket, DO IT NOW!!! RIGHT HERE.

Major Lazer


Major Lazer is the new futuristic dancehall mayhem coming from the minds of Diplo and Switch. Their album Guns Don’t Kill People, Lazers Do drops next week from Mad Decent. Personally, I’m very excited about all this. Right now you can stream the entire album from their myspace page and it is hot. Initially, I was bummed to see that their Philly show was going to be at the Electric Factory, but then I realized IT’S FREE!!! Sponsored by Bacardi, all you have to do is fill out a quick form online and they email you your ticket for Friday, June 19th. If you’re in the Philly area, don’t sleep on this one. It’s gonna be the jump off.

Santigold is definitely one of the fastest rising stars in the indie/dance/hip hop game. It’s hard to pull cred in all those circles, but she’s done it. All this despite the fact that she’s had to change her name from Santogold to Santigold because of some C class DJ who’s been calling himself Santogold for some time now. A brooklyn DJ just dropped the new mixtape Southerngold which pairs Santi’s songs with verses from southern rappers. Her propper LP was one of the best albums released last year, and her colab mixtape with Diplo, Top Ranking, is easily my favorite mixtape released in a long while. All this and the countless remixes and guest spots are propelling her to the top fast.
