Bassnectar – Into The Sun | Purchase
Bassnectar has just dropped the first 5 tracks from his upcoming “Into The Sun” album, which will be released June 30th via his own music label, Amorphous. In an interview with Rolling Stone Lorin explains "I think of this as a mixtape…like a mixtape you'd make for a lover or friend before they leave on a road trip or something.” The laid back categorization of the album gives the producer much more freedom. As Lorin says he can “under promise and over deliver” and focus on giving the album an “element of sonic euphoria."
In the release Nectar drops off a remix of The Naked and Famous "No Way", where he beefs up song with loads of bass conveying the signature Bassnectar flare. He also gives us a remix of his longtime friend Dorfex Bos self-titled single which is an ode to Lorin’s roots. Lorin also lets us hear three upcoming original songs, the title track “Into The Sun”, “Speakerbox” featuring Lafa Taylor, and a collaboration with Santa Cruz producer G Jones on "The Mystery Spot" which is a shout out to San Francisco
Lorin also confirms with Rolling Stone the collaboration between himself and rock legend Tom Morello will be released following “Into The Sun”. There will also be a free mixtape alteration to coincide with “Into The Sun’s” release.

Dan Snaitch, aka Caribou, the Canadian indie / folk / electronic artist who turns out music for over 15 artist has delivered something no one has ever attempted to do. A 1,000 song playlist. And that is not an exaggeration; he has compiled 1000 songs from past and present, with no rules or guidlines, other than being a good song. Ranging from rap to classic rock to all varieties of indie and alternative rock, it will be impossible to be bored listening to this .
Here is his words about the playlist:
The last few years of my life have been incredible, thanks in large part to all of you – so I've been thinking of how to say thank you.
As you can imagine, music has been a central love of my life since I was a teenager and over the years I've been introduced to a lot that has stayed with me. I've collected the majority of that music here – and I thought sharing it with you seemed like one way I could say thanks.
I'm sure some things are under-represented or over-represented, but roughly speaking this is a musical history of my life. Of course a lot of this music has come to me through my friends – thank you to Koushik, Kieran, Jeremy, Gary, Brandon, Jason, Sam, Ketan, Ryan, Toby and many others…
Also, please share music with me that you think I would like but is not included here, in the hope this becomes a dialogue rather than a monologue.
I suggest you listen to this on shuffle as I made no attempt to sequence these tracks – I just entered them as I browsed along the shelves in my record collection. If you see dead links or duplicate songs please tweet me @caribouband.
I hope you find something to enjoy here. Thanks,
