CMC Radio: Get Some

A heads up, first - tomorrow (25/11) at 8 pm local time (that's 6 pm GMT) I'll be the guest DJ at MixGrill's web-radio show on selecting some of my favorite new tunes along with alegra and leo (hint: the track that lends its title to this post will be played, as well as several other entries from our previous playlists). To tune in, click here.

As for this latest CMC Radio web-broadcast (the sixth in our midweek series), I would say that overall it's more pop-friendly than usual, but it gets darker in places and a bit psychedelic. Click below to listen to our new 43:56-minute mixtape that includes tracks by Lykke Li, The Hundred In The Hands, Summer Camp, jj, Zola Jesus, You Say Party, Paramount Styles, Tame Impala, Cloud Nothings, Best Coast, Wavves and low-fi:

CMC Radio: Playlist 6 - Get Some

1. Get Some - Lykke Li

Excellent new single which you can download here by giving an email address. The video is pretty awesome, too, and you can watch it at the end of this post. Sample lyric: "Like the shotgun needs an outcome, I'm your prostitute, you gon' get some!!!" Wow!

2. Commotion - The Hundred In The Hands

The latest single from hot electropop duo The Hundred In The Hands from their self-titled debut. Check out also their website here, where you can read their THITH zine with reviews and features about the music they're into and some pretty cool mixes of their own on Radio THITH.

3. Why Don't You Stay - Summer Camp

Another boy-girl duo - Summer Camp are Jeremy Warmsley and Elizabeth Sankey and this sunny pop track is from their debut EP "Young" on Moshi Moshi Records.

4. Let Go - jj

From the EP "No.3" released earlier this year. It's their only track currently available on MySpace and I would strongly suggest going here to download their latest, Akon-sampling, single "Let Them", which would be my ideal choice for this playlist.

5. Poor Animal - Zola Jesus

New single from Nika Roza Danilova, not included in her latest album "Stridulum II"

6. Laura Palmer's Prom - You Say Party

The Canadian new wave punkers play their first ever gig in Athens this Sunday at Gagarin 205 and we're planning to be there.

7. The Greatest - Paramount Styles

From "Heaven's Alright", the just-released second LP from the new band of ex-Girls Against Boys singer Scott McCloud. They play here at An Club on Friday - looks like we're gonna have a very busy weekend!

8. Solitude Is Bliss - Tame Impala

From "Innerspeaker", the fine debut album by the Australian neo-psychedelic band.

9. Hey Cool Kid - Cloud Nothings

Catchy new track from the young and rising lo-fi band from Cleveland, Ohio, which started as Dylan Baldi's solo project. The self-titled debut album is expected January 2011 on Carpark and Wichita.

10. When I'm With You - Best Coast

One of the best songs of Best Coast and the bonus track of their excellent debut "Crazy for You" (more about it here).

11. King Of The Beach - Wavves

Wavves and Best Coast go hand in hand lately. This is the surf-punk title-track from Wavves' latest and greatest LP so far.

12. Something - low-fi

Finale with something from Italy. low-fi are from Napoli and play some really mean electro-garage punk. The track is from the rockin' 5-track "low-fi EP" which you can get from Octopus Records here.
