Mother Protect (Goldroom Remix) – Niki & The Dove

Last week I posted The Magician Remix of I Follow RiversFor me, there’s one other track that hits that upbeat electronica vibe so perfectly, and it’s this. Again it is the vocals of a Swedish producer being lifted by feel-good keys. Ah, 2011.

Sing it with me: “Oh my heart is like an eagle, I love to fall from the sky / It’s so beautiful, I see right through the water’s edge / And I love your hands, I let them lead me into the cage / So tender, but your body was warm, so frail / But your eyes like mine / The colour of ice



Live in the Moment (Tycho Remixes) – Portugal. The Man

I’m growing a moustache to raise money for the Movember Foundation. So this month I will be honouring some of the best moustaches in music. You can donate to my mo here:

Here are a couple of nice re-imaginings of Portugal. The Man’s Live in the Moment by Tycho.  Portugal. The Man has an annoying way of writing his artist name which is going to make this post unintelligible if I refer to him too often. Anyway, he sounds a bit like Alt-J, if Alt-J wasn’t so sad. Tycho on the other hand, make blissful dream-scapey electronica which is pretty soothing and sweet. The two come together pretty nicely here.

Please keep your suggestions on artists with moustaches coming in. This post was suggested by the band Rule of Young.
