Florence & The Machine - Shake It Out Remix (Feat. The Weeknd) by Music Is
Beautifully filmed and utterly strange video for the late J Dilla's classic track from the essential Donuts instrumental hip-hop album. Here, a love of donuts brings about some pretty odd behaviour in two Finnish policemen. The video is part of Stones Throw Records' video contest which is receiving submissions from amateur filmmakers for any song in the labels back catalogue.
It's been a full 3 years since M83 dropped their excellent Saturdays=Youth album. Their follow-up record is due in October and here we have a brief snippet of one track with some suitably lush visuals. It's as grand and orchestral as you would hope and expect from Anthony Gonzalez and co.
After a few low-key years The Rapture return with this pumped up and hypnotic piano-driven piece of disco. They're back on DFA Records and have a new album, In the Grace of Your Love, dropping later in the year which, on this evidence, should be well worth the wait.

2011 is already shaping up to be a comeback year; alongside Lykke Li, Justice, and PB&J, Digitalism have also announced that their sophomore long player, I Love You Dude, will be out this June. Its clear that the microKorg is still very much in use down in their WWII bunker in Hamburg, though Jens seems to have worked on his English pronunciation. Stream and download below.

Lykke's follow-up to 2008's lauded Youth Novels was released just a couple of weeks ago and looks likely to outdo her first effort. With Bjorn Yttling (of Peter, Bjorn & John fame) and hit maker Rick Nowels on the production team, the overall result is a more radio friendly output but still retains Li's candid and gentle nature throughout. The rehash of second-single I Follow Rivers by low-profile remixer The Magician has been trending quite well of late and layers a 90's piano break over Li's catchy chorus. She returns to Ireland on Saturday 16th April to play Tripod, Dublin and will undoubtedly sell out so book your tickets early.
Passion Pit take time out from working on their second studio album (rumoured to be released sometime in spring) to remix Cold War Kids' title track Mine Is Yours. The rework yields a synthetically styled dreamscape, with echoed vocals, pitch bent keys and a kick-snare beat lifted straight from Depeche Mode's 1988 stadium tour.

TPNK favourites cross paths again with Duck Sauce's interpretation of Hot Mess taken from Chromeo's most recent long player Business Casual. The track features Elly Jackson of La Roux fame, with the remix revolving around her vocal hook. A nice fist pumper to start the New Year. Download it for free below.
