hallelujah the hills “get me in a room” big digits mix

y’all probably know how i feel about remixes, and if you dont, ill lay it out simply, i usually hate em. the only remixes i like are public enemy remixes from the late 80’s – early 90’s. granted there are a few i like, but the majority, not so much. so, when i heard about a remix of probably my favorite song of the year “get me in room,” off my favorite record of the year no one knows what happens next, i had to check it out. its cool, i could do without the rapping, cause i dont think it necessarily fits, but i dig the beats.

beth orton “something more beautiful” video

oh how i used to love beth orton, then she just kind of fell off my musical map, but still i hold her first two records dear to my heart. well, she’s back, signed to anti and is releasing sugaring season on 10.2. loving this song, so here’s hoping its a return to form.
