Party Supplies‘s debut album Tough Love is different than anything you have heard in 2013. There are moments in these 9 tracks where the BK duo sounds like LCD Soundsystem in their prime, and there are other times where they sound a lot like the Footloose soundtrack–and this is coming from the guys (well really, Justin Nealis produces) behind Action Bronson‘s critically acclaimed Blue Chips project and Danny Brown‘s blog smash “Grown Up.”
To me Tough Love is something of a soundtrack for crazy nights out, and in the same vein, it is as imperfect as said nights out. Haven’t you noticed how so much music nowadays sounds way too clean? These songs seem to be purposely mixed to contain that much needed hazy grittiness that retro rock songs sort of champion. All around I would say this is a damn good debut from the Fool’s Gold signees.
#TGIFAF. I think I’m still hungover from last weekend. The first ever Big Ten Championship game in Indianapolis was awesome. It was my first time in Naptown, and treated me well Naptown did. If you’re ever around, Wild Beaver Saloon is a dope spot. Any readers from Indy? Anyway, I’ve collected five tracks for you guys to drop it like it’s hot as the workweek/school week comes to a close. What’s everybody up to this weekend?
1. “Bass Down Low (Proper Villains Remix) – Dev
2. “Just Wanna Dance Yrself Clean (Jay-Z x LCD Soundsystem) – The Hood Internet
What happens when you strap together a hook from Skateboard P, bars from Jigga and production from
James Murphy? IT’S. ABOUT. TO GO. DOWN!
3. “Levels (Haydn Hoffman Remix)” – Avicii
4. “Helena Beat (Com Truise Remix)” – Foster The People
Indie blog darlings turned played-at-every-bar-I-went-to-this-summer Foster The People get a nice treatment by hilariously named Com Truise. At least it’s not “Pumped Up Kicks,” right? Right.
5. “Make Her Say (Sammy Bananas Remix)” – Kid Cudi
Is it safe to say that Lydia is BANANAS for Kid Cudi. See what I did there?
