You can stream the track over at the Hives' website and download it for free after registering there. You only have until the end of the day though, as tomorrow & Tuesday it will be released for purchase in the UK and US respectively.

Yes, I skipped 11...it was in the works last week but then I got sidetracked. It will be up soon though. In the meantime, I'm jumping straight to #12. This video combines many of my loves, namely:
1. Adidas (seriously...the blog colors are inspired by a pair I had, the kicks the "t's" in "showtrotta" are wearing in the header are another)
3. Pilooski's edit of Frankie Valli & the Four Seasons' "Beggin"
Ups to Miquee Le Teque for (unknowingly) bringing this to my attention - btw you can download that fine Pilooski edit over at his blog.

and by heaven, I mean a really nice yacht:

I'd never (to my knowledge at least) heard a Deerhunter song despite them being blogged about all over the place recently, until yesterday. Check out this edit the lovely British duo, Simian Mobile Disco, did of their their track "Octet":
Download: Deerhunter - Octet (Simian Mobile Disco edit).
It kind of reminds me of some early Chemical Brothers stuff (though a tad more noisy).

I was hoping/expecting a more France-based line-up, but whatevs. Should be good.

You can check out 2 different trailers for the film here, read a lot of Soulwax-related posts here, and read my review of their most recent New York show (along with other bands at the Insiders "micro-festival" last month) over at Brooklynvegan.

It's one of the best films I've seen this year and it comes with a live cd of a show they did in San Francisco. You can check out the trailer and tracklisting here, and read my review of it over on Brooklynvegan. Get up on it...

Horribly late with the mid-week video this week, considering it's Monday.
Last summer I was sitting in my apartment in a funky mood, not really feeling like going out...and then I saw this video on New York Noise and it instantly put me in a good mood - I went to Studio B (don't remember who I saw) and had an awesome time:
