Canadian indie rock band Broken Social Scene recently performed their rendition of Modest Mouse’s hit 2004 song “The World at Large.” They did it in conjunction with The Voice Project, which is a non-profit that raises money for women in war-ravaged Northern Uganda. The Voice Project works by getting artists to cover other artists songs and continuing one long chain of covers. The artists thus spread the word about the non-profit and advertisers, sponsors, and individuals donate on their site.

The video gives a glimpse into what it’s like to be Broken Social Scene when they’re working in the studio. They definitely put their trademark sound into the Modest Mouse classic. I love the way they can seemingly just mess around on their instruments and create they perfect melody.

Mixtape Mondays: Super Mash Bros - Fuck Bitches, Get Euros

super mash bros

Dick Flink and Nick Fenmore - or the Super Mash Bros - describe their group as “Girl Talk’s Hot Cousin.” Despite the abundance of family terminology, they manage to put together some extremely danceable stuff, with samples ranging from MGMT to Death Cab for Cutie to Nelly. With a few of these samples, it’s tempting to write off the group as a Girl Talk knockoff, but once you begin going through the album, listening to tracks like “Meet Me at Fantasy Island” (which samples Blink 182), or “Stop that Booty” (sampling Modest Mouse and Bubba Sparxx) you begin to understand that the Super Mash Bros sample sources much more diverse than Girl Talk. Spanning the spectrum from indie rock to Top 40 to european electronica,_ Fuck Bitches, Get Euros _should be the next mixtape you download.
