Coolest Christmas Decorations

A 16 year old (I'm not really sure if it's a boy of a girl) and his or her father hooked up their house with 35,000 LED lights and created the coolest Christmas light show ever with them. They flicker on and off along with the beat of Skrillex's song "First of the Year." I really wish I could visit Meridan, Idaho to see this in person.

Happy Holidays!

Skrillex- Ruffneck Music Video

Skrillex released this video just in time for Christmas. The video is interesting, depicting a tainted Santa Claus and an elf- I guess this is skrillex's way to spread holiday cheer. Enjoy, and merry Christmas to those that celebrate it.

Xaphoon Jones- Possessed By the Devil

Xaphoon Jones, producer of Chiddy Bang, released this tune for Christmas a couple of days ago. The song features rapping from Elbee Thrie and a beats from one of Xaphoon's unreleased songs. I suggest you check out the rap group, Phony Ppl, that Elbee Thrie is part of, they've got some really good songs.

Rihanna- We Found Love (Star Slinger Refix)

British DJ Star Slinger put his touch on Rihanna's hit song "We Found Love." He made it a little less electro-poppy and slowed it down a bit. Give it a listen below.

Luke Christopher- The Tree in My Backyard

Here's the second release in Luke Christopher's series that he started last week called Marvelous Mondays. This latest song is called "The Tree in My Backyard." It's got great vocals and is the perfect track to listen to while driving. His mixtape, Building Skies, should be coming out soon, and if this is any indication of what will be on it, it's going to be great.

Skizzy Mars- Shangri-La

Here's a new track from Skizzy Mars titled "Shangri-La." He's really starting to get a lot more attention now. This one's a bit slower than some of his other songs, but still great. On his facebook page he said this about his new track:
I was in the studio last night when I realized I had just hit 10,000 fans. I’ve been writing a bunch of music recently as I continue to work on my debut project, Phases. While Phases is a story in itself, I still find myself with a bunch of other stories I want to tell due to other experiences and changes in my life etc. I got inspired to write Shangri-La and recorded it yesterday. Just another story to tell. In celebration of 10,000 fans, Shangri-La.

Snow Patrol- Open Your Eyes (Sex Ray Vision Remix)

Sex Ray Vision made an excellent remix of Snow Patrol's song, "Open Your Eyes." The Stanford University duo turned the mellow song into an upbeat tune that is more pop-y. I think the original song gets a little repetitive in certain parts, but this remix fixes that. Check it out below.

Rihanna- We Found Love (Klaypex Remix)

I'm not the biggest Rihanna fan, however I love her song, "We Found Love." Klaypex did a great remix of it, which in my opinion makes it an even better song to dance to. They added some dubstep and made it a bit more techno. Give it a listen for yourself below.

The Knocks- Brightside Music Video

Here's the hilarious music video for The Knocks' song "Brightside." You can snatch it off of their EP, Brightside, which is out now. This song is so catchy and definitely one of my favorites from them.

Luke Christopher- Letter to Myself

Luke Christopher is starting a new series called Marvelous Mondays, and his latest release, "Letter to Myself" is the first of the series. This is a self-produced track, and I think Luke did a great job with it. He will be releasing a new mixtape (Building Skies) soon and this newest track may or may not appear on it.

Will.I.Am- T.H.E. Featuring Jennifer Lopez and Mick Jagger Music Video

So here's a kind of strange mixture of people. Will.I.Am's latest song features Jennifer Lopez on the chorus as well an an appearance by Mick Jagger. "T.H.E. (The Hardest Ever)" seems like it's more of a love it or hate it song, and I think I'm leaning to the love it side. It has a great beat to it that will get you moving.

Bon Iver- Michicant Music Video

Bon Iver's self title album is one of my favorite albums of this year. The band recently released the music video for their song "Michicant." Bon Iver's video's always show beautiful imagery of nature, and this one is no exception.

Foster the People- Don't Stop (Color On The Walls) Music Video

Sorry there haven't been any posts for a while, it's been really hectic around here since first semester is ending this week. I've had a bunch of papers and I have finals this week, so there hasn't been a lot of time to make posts. Anyway, here's the new music video for Foster the People's song "Don't Stop (Color on the Walls). It's not my favorite song from them, but it's got a great playful music video, and features a cameo from actress Gabourey Sidibe. Check it out for yourself above.
