MIXTAPE: Last Night Heavy Accents Saved My Life

Saw Yelle last night at Henry Fonda, and can I say she, Grand Marnier, and Tepr were amazing live. It was a Flashdance flashback dance party with the cutest French aerobics instructor alive. And I've never seen the Fonda that fucking packed. Only bummed that we missed Passion Pit open (whyyy did Funeral Party not open?) :(

Anyways, I just recorded a new mixtape earlier this week, Last Night Heavy Accents Saved My Life. I decided to slow things down and throw in some oldies but goodies (Tom Tom Club, Hot Chip, Rokysopp, Indeep) and I especially want to point out the much under-rated Daft Punk classic from 2001, "Short Circuit" (come on, it won a f'king got nominated for a Grammy!), is on there.

Also check out the Hercules & Love Affair track, which has convinced me the lesbian singer in it has one of the best voices in music today, and look out for Private (they used to be the band Superheroes from Denmark which I absolutely think is the shit, they're also friends with Junior Senior) with another under-rated song if you haven't heard about them already. I had fun with this one, don't sleep on it.
