Welcome to Earth
Mellow out with the Earth Division EP from Scotland’s Mogwai. The set is melodic and has beautiful, incorporating classical string sounds. If you listen to the album from soup to nuts (it’s only about 15 minutes) you may notice a climax of the album in track 3, ‘Drunk and Crazy,’ with a resolution to follow. Perhaps a long shot, but the album brings to mind the classical...
Right when I thought I was safe from deep electronic beats, The Crystal Method released the Play for Real EP with help from The Heavy (i.e., ‘How You Like Me Now’). The original is heavy, industrial and rocking. Have a listen. Play For Real Remix EP by The Crystal Method

I got tired
It’s poppy and electronic, catchy and memorable. The newest drop from Brazil’s CSS is La Liberación, released two weeks ago. Even if your experience with CSS is limited to the iPod touch commercial, check out the album. I really dig “Red Alert” featuring Ratatat. For some flavor, here’s “Hits me Like a Rock,” track 2. 04.
