Daddy’s mp3reets: Arcade Fire, Rumer, Theophilus London, Bettye Swan, Christian Walz
Basically sh1tloads of wonderful music appears every single day. How to work though it?*
Oh look, Arcade Fire AND Blondie!
Sometimes you learn to appreciate two separate acts via a rather well-done mashup. Here’s the most electro track on Arcade Fire’s album mushed up with Blondie’s Heart Of Glass:
Other times, a track is pushed your way when discussing Eurovision on Twitter (thanks Orn).
Christian Walz: Wonderchild
Christian Walz being cute
Sometimes you hear an older track reinterpreted in a fresh way, like Rumer doing Joan Armatrading’s Love and Affection:
Rumer being rumery
Other times it’s a very random older track which comes your way deserves an airing. Amazingly passive-aggressive, but it sounds convincing. Hello Bettye Swann – Be Strong Enough To Hold On:

And sometimes, it’s just all fresh. Hello US rapsperson Theophilus London feat. Sara Quin:
Theophilus London being a hipster.
I ♥ music.
