February Songaday Day Ten

EGO DAY TEN: Sneaker Pimps - 6 Underground
Ah, Sneaker Pimps. I found these guys through Pandora. They're a trip-hop band in the vein of Massive Attack and Portishead, They haven't been active for a good while, but had a few albums. My favorite by far is the first, Becoming X - for god knows what reason, they changed singers after this, and the singer on Becoming X was, to me, what set them apart and made them special. Anyway, I like this song quite a bit, as well as Low Place Like Home, Spin Spin Sugar, Post-Modern Sleaze, and others.
Don't confuse them with, a touring sneakers and street based art show. Check them out too though, they've got some cool stuff.

BRO DAY TEN: La Roux - In For The Kill
HE WAS LATE. Um, Techincally he said the Skrillex remix of this but I have principles. Go look it up yourself, I'm not linking that one.
La Roux is a group of British fellows who do electropop. Their stuff really isn't my thing. They've been met with good success though, so good for them I guess.
This song also got good reviews. It's been remixed a bunch of times. One featuring Kanye West (I didn't even try listening to it, but maybe it happens to be good, idk), one by Skrillex (which I dislike a lot and will not be posting here), and one by Skream, and that one is actually pretty good! It was included on a Glitch Mob mixtape as well, though I can't find that recording really.

In For The Kill (Skream Remix):

I wish Bro would stop picking things I don't like very much, but I suppose that's up to him. I also wish Bro would pick a song before 11:30 at night, that slacker.
End Recording,
