Track of the Week: We Swarm by The Glitch Mob

This week’s track is We Swarm by The Glitch Mob, off of Drink The Sea. Over the last few years I’ve heard a lot of Glitch Mob tracks in passing and in friends cars, or at Burning Man, but it wasn’t until I went and saw them at a show about a month ago that I took a serious listen to their music. This track, We Swarm, is a killer glitch/electronica song. Opening with strained synths and breaking in to a bounce after that, the real hook for me comes in at about 2:15 where a syncopated back beat comes that’s joined with an explosive percussive sound at 3:05. Listen to it in your car with the volume up and the windows down and you won’t regret it.

Track of the Week: Freak You Out by Blip Blip Bleep

This week’s track is Freak You Out, by Blip Blip Beep off of Like Track Stars. I saw BBB perform at Mercury Lounge in NYC a few weeks back with a friend as the second band in a three act lineup. Super energetic and straight up electropop their sound is super fun and poppy, with a dash of rock. This song was (I think) their closer in their set which included an amazing electrodub cover of Michael Jackson’s Beat It. Like Track Stars is¬†definitely¬†worth checking out, it’s better than their prior EPs, and this track is the most fun out of all of them.
