Today’s Untz: Dreams (Gigamesh Edit) / Fleetwood Mac

Debuted in Gigamesh’s sets worldwide and then on Triple J’s ‘Lunch’ last week, this is the one we’ve been waiting for. His edit of Fleetwood Mac’s 1977 hit ‘Dreams’ has easily become the number one song asked about after every Gigamesh show. Today, the highly-anticipated track has been released for free. Just go to Gigamesh’s Facebook and click ‘Like’ to download.

Gigamesh has been ‘single handidly trying to make pop cool again in America’ and his remixes have proven time and again that he is the ‘king of disco.’ Gigamesh’s version of ‘Dreams’ is a shining example of what happens when he takes inspiration from the past and adds his own smooth and modern disco touch to it. ‘One of the absolute best remixers in the game for several years running now,’ Gigamesh has been blowing fans away this year with remixes of everyone from Grouplove to Ladyhawke to Moullinex.

Bonus Track: Don’t You Want ME (Dimitri Disko Edit) / The Human League

Favorite new website find that combines two of my favorite things: drinkify.org. Simply type in the artist you want to listen to, and this genius site will give you a track and the perfect drink pairing. A bottle of red wine all for yourself with Bon Iver, a martini of tears for the Get Up Kids, a shot of Southern Comfort for Tim McGraw et cetra. While not a perfect science (it seems to default less known bands to PBR) it’s really quite clever, and being the Monday after a long holiday weekend, we could all use a drink.

Today’s Emo: At Least I Have Nothing / Saint Motel

‘and I probably messed up / made a mistake / at least it was mine’

A delicious pop treat from up and coming Los Angelites Saint Motel. I was pulled in on first listen by the suave vocals, catchy guitar, and lead singer AJ’s smug “mmm” after singing he has nothing. The hook is inescapable, relaying the somber benefits to leading a life with no strings attached.

The band has described the song as  ‘a fucked up look at the bright side of utter despair. When you have nothing, maybe that nothingness is actually something… freedom.‘ Bright side indeed. The track follows the group’s earlier single, Puzzle Pieces, and will be dropped via an upcoming 7’ vinyl. #emo

Today’s Untz: Red Light / Gigamesh ft Amanda Love

‘music / magic’

Music magic indeed, this track makes you feel good from the ears on down. Gigamesh has been posting great stuff for some time now, but recently released his first official EP. He took the time to personally thank me for my original post of his work a few months ago, while politely pointing out that I had misspelled his name as Gilgamesh (damn Mesopotamian mythology). Never again. The whole four track EP is a win, and Red Light is the perfect way to cautiously ease back into the working world. #untz
