♬ 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.

Update (5/27): After selling out two days at the new Barclays Center in Brooklyn in just minutes, Sensation has unsurprisingly announced its return this fall, addings stops in San Francisco, Las Vegas, and Miami as well. Sign up to be a “Club Member” (free) and you’ll get priority access when tickets go on sale. Get your whites ready…

♬ 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…

OH MY YES

★ The Hood Internet – Ignition (1901 Remix) (R. Kelly vs.
Phoenix)

Okay, so my initial reaction was more like, “Oh my god, no”. But then I heard the Hood Internet’s re-mash of the crazy ‘ish that went down a little over a week ago at California’s Coachella music festival when R. Kelly burst onto the stage of none other than beloved indie favorite, Phoenix… And now I love it.

Never did I ever think I would add the tag “R. Kelly” to this site…

★ Macklemore & Ryan Lewis feat. Mary Lambert – Same Love

As soon as I started, I knew it had to be reposted. Too good.

Church,

I got to go to the Macklemore concert on Friday night. If you want to hear about how that went, ask me, seriously, I want to talk about it until I die. The whole thing was great; but the best part was when Macklemore sang “Same Love.” Augustana’s gym was filled to the ceiling with 5,000 people, mostly aged 18-25, and decked out in thrift store gear (American flag bro-tanks, neon Nikes, MC Hammer pants. My Cowboy boyfriend wore Cowboy boots…not ironically….). The arena was brimming with excitement and adrenaline during every song, but when he started to play “Same Love,” the place about collapsed. Why? While the song is popular everywhere, no one, maybe not even Macklemore, feels its true tension like we do in Sioux Falls, South Dakota. If you’re not familiar, here’s the song [above].
