How nice of George Lewis Jr. – aka Twin Shadow – to load up all of his remixes into this handy dandy SoundCloud set for us all to enjoy. While none of these are necessarily new tracks, I’ve been enjoying the collective reprise of these classics from Surfer Blood, Lemonade, Bear in Heaven and more. Kinda like a walk down indie music lane, circa 2010.

Gah, I cannot get this song outta my head. Every time I put on this album I just hit the repeat button for this track and listen to it over and over and over again. And I’m still not sick of it. “Beast in Peace” is a track off the Brooklyn-based band’s third album, Beast Rest Forth Mouth, and is a study in electronic experimental rock. It’s a great album with that kind of textural, atmospheric sound you just want to wrap yourself up and get lost in. Pitchfork compared the album to be on par with Caribou’s Andorra and for once I agree with them. Love that album and love this one too.
