★ Mike Shinoda & Skylar Grey – Where’d You Go (Murdok Dubstep Remix)

Absence and loss can occur as two different types. The first type is often like missing something you once had a right to. A ring broken, letter burned or book stolen. The second is more abstract. Sometimes described as a glass of water that cannot be refilled; as the water is removed the glass is emptied. A promise broken, memory forgotten or pattern changed. The third type is missing something you never had. A glass empty, song never heard or a feeling never felt.

★ Fiona Apple – Pure Imagination (Cover)

So my favorite Mexican food chain and my favorite vegan radical indie/emo singer (Fiona Apple) just found one another and produced one of the most powerful advertising spots I’ve ever seen… ♥ Chipotle

♬ Pretty Lights – Around the Block

One of my favorite festival mainstays, Pretty Lights, has a kickass new record coming out just in time for July, “A Color Map of the Sun” (stream it FREE here!). Silky smooth like all the ones before it, this album adds a new dimension through the use of old-timey instruments Derek spent months traveling many miles to dig up. Tickets for the official launch party at the new underground club Output in Brooklyn go on sale at NOON TODAY, and are capped at only 800 people so act fast! Otherwise, you can catch pretty lights at Camp Bisco, Electric Forest, and a number of other amazing festivals across the U.S.

Smirnoff collaborated with UK’s DJ Fresh on a really amazing project that enabled people with disabilities to produce music using brain impulses and ocular movements… Welcome to the future. Watch the full documentary here.

♬ Tom Odell – Can’t Pretend or $

With Shazam and similar music-identifying apps all the rage now, any TV producer will agree a key element to a successful show is its music selection. So I cheer on one of my favorites, “The Newsroom”, with the addition of this indie song from overseas by Brit Tom Odell, only 22 years old and already a winner of the BRITs Critics’ Choice Award, earlier this year.

♬ Daft Punk – Contact

The mashups, tributes, and remixes of Daft Punk‘s just-released album, “Random Access Memories” (on iTunes now!), arrive unabated and in such quick succession it’s impossible to keep up with them. Here are just a few of my favorites, starting with the bizarrely-perfect merger of 2001: A Space Odyssey with the track “Contact”, above. With this latest success, Daft Punk prove their timelessness and universality one. more. time.

★ Daft Punk – Doin’ It Right (Unlike Pluto Remix)
♬ Daft Punk – Random Access Memories (Vanderway Edit)
♬ Daft Punk – Lose Yourself to Dance ft. Pharrell Williams (Yashar Gasanov Dubstep Remix)

PS, did I mention Daft Punk has officially announced they will be remixing the entire album themselves? Oh giggity…

★ Lana Del Rey – Young and Beautiful or $

Baz Luhrmann seems to be bringin’ it again, this time via the mighty force of DiCaprio in a remake of The Great Gatsby (releases May 10th). While the cinematography and acting is stunning enough, a sizable amount of the 120m+ budget seems to have been handed to the musical director, who’s included an Amy Winehouse cover by Beyoncé, an original Lana (above), Nero, The xx, Sia… Unreal! Download the full album from iTunes here

But I had the uneasy feeling he was guarding secrets…

no, don’t close your eyes for this

★ Taylor Swift – Safe & Sound (Yashar Gasanov Dubstep Remix)

Gotta hand it to T-Swift and 23-y.o. Belarusian Yashar Gasanov, who dubbed over her track “Safe & Sound” about a year ago, but never really got the recognition he sincerely deserves! Especially with this magical video of fiery orchids…wow.
