Indie, Pop | Jon Bellion – Dead Man Walking

If you’re looking for originality, look no further than Jon Bellion. Following up his previous releases of “Paper Planes” and “LIFE“, the Long Island native has some fun with his newest release, reciting a plot similar to an episode of “My Sisters Hot Friend”. Jon’s organic style is what really stuck out to me in this indie-acoustic jam, written, produced, and performed entirely by Jon himself. Although varying from his two previous releases, Jon once again has shown that necessary x-factor in each video thus far, creating a piece of art like nothing we’re accustomed to seeing. The upcoming project Translations Through Speakers is still slated for a release later this winter.

NYU students love indie music. At least one track related to the genre is bound to pop up on any given playlist, during the occasional apartment party. I first heard Edward Sharpe and The Magnetic Zeroe’s song, “Home,” while out at one of said parties, a few months back. Although I typically shy away from bands such as this, the track proved otherwise. DJ Whole-Z capitalized on “Home’s” popularity by remixing the track into an electro banger. The beginning is slow, much like the original song, but the drop is pretty sick.

2010 didn’t play out so well for M.I.A.. We’re all sick of her remixes (if my girlfriends play a version of “Paper Planes” again, I may keel over). Two weeks after dropping her [decent] mixtape entitled “Vicki Leekz,” M.I.A. has released a new EP with four remixes of her song “Internet Connection.” Two of said remixes, by Flux Pavillion and Huoratron Rum Aid, are posted below and deserve some recognition.

Unfortunately I missed Steve Aoki’s Friday night return to Surrender while out in Vegas. The below remixes of “Wake Up Call” have helped me get over it.
