Okay so as finals wrap up (for me at least), I am PSYCHED to be able to premiere this awesome BadBoxes remix for you guys. BadBoxes took an awesome alt-rock tune in The Mowgli’s “The Great Divide” and turned it into a slick, electronica jam. I know you guys are home for the holidays, so let this bad boy make its seamless transition into your pregame before you go and do your thing with your home-friends. If you like what you hear, make sure you check out BOTH of The Mowgli’s and BadBoxes.
You can add The Mowgli’s to the growing list of bands that do poppy, folk-rock songs with incredibly big harmonies. “Say It, Just Say It” is infectious and immediately relatable. And right now it’s raining outside where I live in South Carolina, but this song makes it feel sunny as shit inside.
At least kiss me just to shut me up
And this is how it starts…
The music blog community is generally a pretty tight knit community, and with Thanksgiving just around the corner, Sunset in the Rearview is thankful for the many, many music websites that share great music every week. One such website is Noon Pacific. This site delivers a playlist straight to your email every Monday at noon (pacific time), containing the best music the blogs have to offer. Sign up is simple and easy; you just have to give your name and email address. I mean, you guys this is a great idea that has been executed to perfection.
So naturally, we decided to collaborate with Noon Pacific, who was kind enough to feature our very own guest mix in their weekly email. I put 10 brand new indie songs on this mix, including Ra Ra Riot’s newest single, a song from our new favorite west coast band The Mowgli’s, and “Annie” from Peter and Kerry‘s excellent debut album La Trimouille.
