The Milwaukee electronic duo Kiings have spent much of the last year working on original material, with sights on releasing a full-length album soon, but they haven't forgotten their roots as remix artists. Their latest track is a reworking of James Vincent McMorrow's "Cavalier," from the singer-songwriter's latest album Post Tropical. While that record saw McMorrow move away from naturalistic fol...

Every so often a rapper surprises me. Who knew Klassik even listened to Young Thug? Specializing in cleanly produced jazz-inflicted hip-hop, the posh Milwaukee rapper is the temperamental opposite of Atlanta's manic, syrup-addled wildcard, but even he can't resist the pull of Thug's club hit "Danny Glover." This week Klassik became the 347th rapper to jump on the track, and it's a hoot hearing him...

Looking for another Volcano Choir fix after this weekend's rapturously received show? This might help. The band has selected the dreamy electro-soul track "Comrade" as the second single from their magnificent new album Repave, and in conjunction they've released an EP featuring remixes of the song from Volcano Choir sister bands Altos and All Tiny Creatures, as well as from VC guitarist Chris Rose...

This is me giving credit where credit is due: After a lengthy history of creating cynical new ways to milk money from fans, Radiohead is toning down some of their exploits. In April, the group launched a greedy contest (really just a thinly veiled iTunes/GarageBand cross-promotion) allowing users to remix "Nude." The rub? To participate in the contest, remixers would need to buy spliced up piec...
