Get To Know French Electropop Prince Yuksek, Among Others.
Welcome to Download This, our weekly collection of the hottest tunes from around the country and beyond. Though we promise to try to keep things fresh and varied, expect mainly indie rock, electro and as much nu-disco as possible in this space. In other words: If it's awesome, you'll find it here. Download the tracks in a .zip file at the end of the page, and, if you like what you hear, be sure to check out the individual artists' websites to, y'know, buy the rest of their work!
“Someone Else” – Wild Child
Despite what their name may suggest, Austin's Wild Child crafts pretty, melodic indie rock. Nothing shocking here, just sweet.
“Mr. Quiche” – Wildcat! Wildcat!
Another “Wild” band whose name doesn't quite fit their sound. But the oddly-named “Mr. Quiche” is a total three-minute pop gem.
“Iron Deer Dream (RAC Remix)” – Fixers
I'm of the opinion that everything Portland's RAC touches turns to gold, so it's no wonder their remix of Oxford's Fixers strikes a seriously catchy chord.
“On a Train” – Yuksek
France's electropop prince Yuksek released his latest album stateside a few weeks ago, and he seems primed to take this side of the Atlantic by storm. With songs like this, how couldn't he?
“Sa Sa Samoa (Elite Gymnastics Remix)” – Korallreven
Sweden's Korallreven gets the remix treatment from Elite Gymnastics, catapulting their languid dream pop to otherworldly heights.
