Heads up to every fan out there! Daft Punk's One More Time gets the remix treatment by a possibly unknown/lesser-known group and damn, it's is something.

Let's get the ball going, shall we?

We all know Halloween Ball is one of the events we look forward to at All Souls Eve. Whilst I am one of the person who are ambivalent with Halloween (Love or Hate?), I swear to being the apprehensive one when it comes to musical choices. Who said Halloween is was all about swanky costumes, pranks and booze? Here is my trick or treat for you guys, a whole set (read 13 + bonus tracks of my kind of playlist for this season).

Here’s to getting into the spooky swing of things with a proper balance of the right soundtrack, and a whole hell of a lot of candy!

13 and 4 other tracks... *Mwahahahaha*

1 The Smashing Pumpkins - We Only Come Out at Night

Technically, you could pick out any of The Smashing Pumpkins songs and it would be considered appropriate. The title had a feel for the nature of vampires coming out at night (because they melt during the day, duh), and to be honest with you… sometimes Billy Corgan looks a little bit ghastly. Though the song is agreeably slow, it deserved top spot for the spooky feel.

Download | Smashing Pumpkins - We Only Come Out at Night

2 The Pixies - Bone Machine

The thing about The Pixies is that they have a little bit of something for everyone, but they definitely are not for everyone. This isn’t really your typical party song…unless people know the words and everyone can try to sing along with Frank Black and sorta do that college-rock head bang dance, which for some reason is perfected after a few beers. I put this song as the second spot because it’s a chance to rock out a little bit…and come on, The Pixies are awesome.

Download | The Pixies - Bone machine

3 Metric - Monster Hospital

Though there is a repetitive line in the song, “I fought the war, but the war won”, which may bother you a bit, you'd soon forget about it once you hear enchanting Ms. Emily Haines' vocals pounding on you ears. Basically, any song that starts out with the line, “Bam shika bam shika boom boom bom” is top of it’s class in my book.

Download | Metric - Monster Hospital

4 TV on the Radio - Wolf Like Me

When you want to maintain the upbeat feel of the party, this track from one of my favorite bands, TV on the Radio, is the most fitting one. This jam, which was part of their recent album Dear Science, is probably one of their more popular songs on the mainstream scene. Let your guests jump up and down your sofa cause they should.

Download | TV On The Radio - Wolf Like Me

5 Michael Jackson feat. Janet Jackson - Scream

I particularly make it a point to include Jacko in anything Halloween. It's not just the artists' physical features that make Halloween a fearsome thing to behold (Pun Intended), but just that sense of fun accompanying Michael Jackson's songs make this track a Halloween playlist essential.

Download | Michael Jackson feat. Janet Jackson - Scream

6 The Talking Heads - Psycho Killer

I would personally love to be in attendance at a party that played The Talking Heads, better yet, I would love to be friends with a person that played The Talking Heads at their party. Who knows, you might get some movie action while the song is playing.

Download | The Talking Heads - Psycho Killer

6 Sonic Youth - Halloween

Things get a bit slow here (a lot). The scene I'm kinda imagining here is everyone lounging, sort of taking in everything. Just sort of chilling out and taking in the ambiance. It’s the somewhat spoken lyrics, the at-times eerie guitar, and the random bursts of tambourine that makes this song appropriate. the title is, obviously.

Download | Sonic Youth - Halloween

7 - 8 Beck - Scarecrow

So, here is my man, Beck! Now that things are slow and people are in that cool lounge around vibe, it’s only appropriate to bring this dude in (Wonder what Beck would dress up as for Halloween?). I considered putting “Scarecrow” on my list, so hey, what the hell? This is a good song, it’ll continue the chill-laxin’ you have going on.

Download | Beck - Devil's Haircut

Download | Beck - Scarecrow

9 Gorillaz - Dracula

Please note that this is not “Dragula” by Rob Zombie because he would be featured on a completely other list titled, “Artists that you dress up as for Halloween”. But alas, this song is by the Gorillaz…the mysterious band, made up of cartoon characters, that has managed to keep it’s allure with it’s audience. This song in particular is perfect because it incorporates the seasonal inspiration, but it also caters to that lounge feeling that has developed in the playlist at some point or another. I should also note that the lyrics clearly indicate, “Everybody party time“…what more can be said about the lyrical content than that! This song is a bit out there in the best possible way and provides a good background music to an even better conversation (and of course, drinks).

Download | Gorillaz - Dracula

10 Björk - Play Dead

Björk would also probably be on my list of artists to dress up like, especially if you are talented enough to make that Swan Dress. I am blatantly inspired to include this song not just because of the title but the way eerrie sounds make goosebumps seem persistent throughout the song. It’s slow, it’s somewhat pretty, and it’s got that great Björk yell in it at multiple points in the song. Chillin' track.

Download | Bjork - Play Dead

10 Goldfrapp - Monster Love

This song is slow “.” It may even be safe to yell out a humorous “couples only” when this one comes on, but it’s a lovely song and gives a new outlook to monster lovin’!

Download | Goldfrapp - Monster Love

12 Ladytron - I'm Not Scared

This group is particularly perfect for the list. Spikes up those guests of yours that might be dozing off, an puts everyones groove for a bit of some disco and partayh.

Download | Ladytron - I'm Not Scared

13 Cat Power - Werewolf

Okay, this song is a bit sensitive so sequence is essential. The goal is not to play into the majority opinion, but rather to end the playlist with a bone-chilling song that isn’t over the top and just sort of gives your guests a parting (not dying) note.

You may want to make sure that your guests haven’t fallen asleep after chilling out to the second half of this playlist, and if they have fallen asleep then all you have to do is pump up Jacko’s “Thriller” to get them awake. Who knows, the “Thriller” dance may even look better when it’s done by people who are half-asleep.

Download | Cat Power - Werewolf

I must say, Ladyhawke is getting on my good side lately. With this video, I mean. I know I won't be the first one to say this but this video just puts Ladyhawke 's artistic take on music on the map! It's truly breathtaking *sigh.

Chateau Marmont gave the track a retro remix treatment, while Fan Death remix is plain sick. Toddla T & Ross Orton makes good with techno. Get your doses right over here mates.

NEW JUSTICE: DVNO (Sunshine Brothers Mix)

Although this has been around for a few days (1 to 3 days, I think), I really wanted to post this track, a mix by the Sunshine Brothers on Justice's DVNO, so here ya go!

I know I've been pretty verbal in my affection for the graceful voices of Au Revoir, and surprise! I have a new song off their upcoming remix album, Reverse Migration, which includes remixes by The Teenagers, Best Fwends, AIR's Darkel, Montag, Hot Chip's Alexis Taylor, and more. This one is by Pacific!, another wonderful new Swedish band.

The Slightly Oldie but classie When We Were Young by The Killers was a hit and Breakbot did a remix of the Sneaky Sound System cover. I love how Breakbot slays the original and turns it into one helluva awesome jam. Bless you Breakbot. And he removed that one line I've been hating, "I told you to eat dinner".

Mm-mmm. Loves it.

The UK's Friendly Fires are supporting Swedish pop heroine Lykke Li on her current, mostly sold-out U.S. tour. They kicked out this cosmic-disco cover of Lykke's "I'm Good I'm Gone,". Diggin' a lot of Friendly Fires.

Hey there, I know my posts haven't been much indulgent lately (are they?). Anyways, if you haven't heard, Bloc Party's will physically release their album, Intimacy, and to quench your thirst I have a few bonus tracks which started to pop up around the internet last week.

Billboard got in on the news. here's what they said:

Bloc Party is expanding its third album, “Intimacy,” for CD release on Oct. 28 via Atlantic. Fans who pre-ordered the album through the band in August received an immediate download of the set, but without the songs “Letter To My Son,” “Your Visits Are Getting Shorter,” “Talons” and “Flux.”

Those four tracks, plus acoustic versions of “Talons” and “Signs,” will also be available in the wider digital release next week. “Some of the tracks weren’t even finished when we put it on the Internet,” drummer Matt Tong tells “And you have to sweeten the deal out there for the traditionalists.”

Although nothing is confirmed, Bloc Party has tentative plans to return to North America in December for some radio station-sponsored festivals.

Here is the final track list for “Intimacy”:

(1)“Ares” (2)“Mercury” (3)“Halo” (4)“Biko” (5)“Trojan Horse” (6)“Signs” (7)“One Month Off” (8)“Zephyrus” (9)“Talons” (10)“Better Than Heaven” (11)“Ion Square” (12)“Letter To My Son” (13)“Your Visits Are Getting Shorter” (14)“Flux”

Here are the download links, they're Zshare so click on to listen. I actually got really good tracks, you'll love them, I promise.

Indie Pop Group PHOTONS formed by Calvin Liu was created with the original intention of making music that might sound like “a more cheerful Joy Division” — a simple idea that would evolve dramatically as the San Francisco band’s size continued to grow.

Now an 8-piece co-ed ensemble that prominently features the bassoon, glockenspiel, clarinet and melodica, Photons has swiftly established itself as one of San Francisco’s most unique and charming acts, with an energetic live show full of jumps, stomps and shouts.

The group released this month the self-titled EP drawing a critical comparison of bands ranging from The Walkmen, The Decemebrists to The Strokes.

Eminem is having a relapse!

This track is exciting,  Eminem is back to original form with his wacky sadist rap flow. With the good review on this track, I can't help but be excited for whatever else Eminem has in the woodworks!

OOHH, yay. I've been anticipating single releases and leaks (hehe) of Fall Out Boy's upcoming album. Although Fall Out Boy may have pushed back the release of their forthcoming album Folie A Duex, 6 weeks (to December 16th), But FOB now released, “What A Catch, Donnie” as their third digital single; a part of their continueing effort to “countdown to” Folie A Duex. And they did much pleasure for the fans by inviting Elvis Costello and Panic at the Disco’s Brenden Urie on the track, to sampling their own monumental hits (”Sugar, We’re Going Down,” “This Ain’t A Scene…”).

I love how Fall Out Boy tries and succeeds on reinventing themselves. Will this be the new "This Aint A Scene" and "Thnks fr the Mmrs"? You decide! (MP3 below!)

Have you ever had event when you have a really sullen feeling, a dampened shit of a day and then, by just a tune you heard from somewhere in the street, you feel like nothing can put a frown on your face? That's how I felt with Lovers Electric and electro/techno/pop band from Adelaide, Australia is made up of members David Turley and Eden Boucher. and although I didn't really hear the song somewhere in the street, it was a feel-good tune that will keep you humming for a while, or even longer.

Good to know!
MTV used a number of their songs, including "Closer" in the hit TV series The Hills.

Below are .gifs from their Myspace, adorable, aren't they?

So guys, what did we learn here in TBT* everytime we hear the word Australian?
I know you have an answer to that.

I don't know about other people but I think Kid Sister's pretty cute, don't you think? Anyway, her album is out SOON and if you are one of those people who dig good pop and hiphop, then you better check her out.

It's amazing how every new Aeroplane remix is released keeps getting better and better. These dudes deserve more than a round of applause with this feat. And with their brilliant minds for making amazing changes on their album version of Paris. Even if I do admit of loving the track's original version, the decision to scrape out their vocals and replace them completely with new ones for the re-release was probably the best choice for it. Thank God it wasn't Lady GaGa who did the vocals but the fanta-bulous and breath-taking Au Revoir Simone (Holy cow, her voice) who nailed it hard bringing the song to a whole new level, even probably the best songs of the year.

The Aeroplanes remix has been all over the net for days (I know) but here's an even higher kbps for their 192. Since it's one of the greatest remixes from Aeroplanes, I had to hook you up with the 320kbps version for complete pleasure.

FEATURED ARTIST: Situationists

Well, haven't we had our share of indie rock bands this late 2008? Here is another one from Sheffield, UK - the SITUATIONISTS.

The Situationists creates flavorful indie-rock songs palatable to anyone interested with a slight of Death Cab for Cutie, Hot Club de Paris and The Velvet Teen. The author of fine pop songs that combine the distinctive way with a tune that only quintessentially English fellows like Blur and The Futureheads--the Situationists---can claim as their own with the complex guitar work and soaring nature. I'm afraid you'll find it hard to let go of their tracks.

NEW TRACKs: Fredrik - "Black Fur" + "1986"

Another Swedish artist to love! Fredrik, is drenched in optimism and so are their songs. Their music is some beautiful bluegreen avant-folk. Seriously, it feels like this music was specifically written to make its listeners feel better: chord plucking on acoustics and mandolins. Their US album Na Na Ni hits the stores on October 28th through The Kora, from which “1986” (available here) and “Black Fur” have been drawn.

Similar to: Lykke Li, Tim Williams, Shout Out Louds

Who would've guessed that this Ting Tings track was for the Nickelodeon show Yo Gabba Gabba!? The show gained cult status when groups of talented artists (The Ting Tings, The Roots and Mark Kozelek of Sun Kil Moon, The Red House Painters and hip hop legend Biz Markie to name a few) lending artistry and quirk to the dull children's songs of today.

Though you might confuse the name of the group to the Casio Corporation of Japan, L.A.'s Casxio makes its distinction in the music/electronica world with the awesome funk and pop dancefloor stuff that makes Chromeo nod his head in approval. "Roque Baby" is a testament of this. Bonus points! The band's giving 4 free EP downloads over at their website. 

Beatrice Martin is the heart and voice of Coeur de Pirate. The 18 year old artist crafts gorgeous piano numbers and is undeniably sexy in the way that only blonde, "Bardot-looking" girls singing in French can be.

I do admit that I'm unable to fully grasp what is being sung. I don't give much mind to the fact I don't understand all the words Coeur de Pirate sings. It's not so much of the words that move with these songs, but the grandeur, the simplicity, the feeling and the heart behind the tunes on this self-titled debut. Check out the the stream and download for "Comme des Enfants," and "C'tait salement romantique"and try not to fall in love with Coeur de Pirate.

Robyn's new video is all the rave in YouTube and I don't want to be the last one in line! The video is wonderfully performed, nothing less from the Swedish sweetheart!

Bunny Rabbit's music can be considered a cross between Alice in Wonderland-esque style but with the edge of a Quentin Tarantino movie.

The melodies might be sweet, but the lyrics sure is NOT. The rap is a bit odd, but at times, very very obscene.

The French do it best! Daft Punk probably ranks top or almost top (before or after J.U.S.T.I.C.E) to my all-time faved electronica/techno artists. The guys started sometime in 1987, so they must probably be middle aged men. I'm not saying they're old, but if my dad is one of the world's most renowned music gurus, then I'd probably have one helluva-SHWEET life.

The duo is considered one of the most successful electronic music collaborations of all time, both in album sales and in critical acclaim. I wouldn't wonder why their next step was to release a DVD of their movie. And I'm telling you firsthand, ELECTROMA was BRILLIANT.

Oh! Which reminds me...

Electroma was one of the very few pieces from music artists for film that I actually appreciated. Thinking of Mariah Carey's perfomance in Glitter made me realize how completely talentless a singer CAN be, for once.

So, Lycos Cinema will be making available exclusively for one day prior to DVD release, the critically acclaimed Cannes Film Festival award-nominee Electroma, a.k.a Daft Punk's Electroma. Written and Directed by Thomas Bangalter and Guy-Manuel De Homem-Christo, the film follows the history of two robots, the members of Daft Punk, on their quest to become human. Fans of Electroma can continue to access the film in Lycos Cinema's featured rental releases. Go to THIS PAGE for more.

Database debuted their remix of the Thieves Like Us hit, Drugs in My Body. Thieves Like Us got the party started at Le Regine, Paris along with Black Devil Disco Club and Jupiter. Database is one fun duo and they did justice to Drugs in My Body. Don't you agree?

NEW ALBUM: Ingrid Michaelson - Be Ok

I was actually partial to Ingrid Michaelson's new album. After one of my friends introduced her music to me, it was inevitable that I'd like her music. Her absence in music scene was eminent with the arrival of fold-pop singers like Sara Bareilles and Meiko didn't help either.

Her Chain track (listen to it here) was pretty good, compared to her title track, Be Ok. Despite Be Ok's finger-snapping beat, the rest of her tracks are fit for kindergarteners ("I can do anything I want to/I can be anything that I see," on "Lady in Spain"). I wish her second album was a lot better than what it is now.

But hey, listen to it here so that you can get a good review of her track. Go here

This alternative dance band from Copenhagen, Denmark which formed in 2006 is one of my recent guilty pleasures.

Mette Lindberg (for the vocals), is eponymous to a a sweeter version of Nicole Atkins. The Asteroids Galaxy Tour first UK single, "The Sun Ain't Shining No More", is already nabbing the ears and eyes of music aficionados in the UK. To go with their increasing number of listeners, the duo came up with a video directed by the Brownlee Brothers & shot this summer in their native land of Copenhagen.

And their first single, Around the Bend, was featured in this iPod Touch 2G Advert. I like what Apple is doing for the upcoming indie artists. Their usage of the songs really gives the artists a good boost and maybe some foundation in the music arena. Remember Chairlift's Bruises? That was a damn hit, right?

Pink isn't wasting any time getting back into the spotlight... SOBER, her 2nd single was produced by Danja, Kanal, and Jimmy Harry sounds different from her previous work, although the trademark angst Pink is known for still has trickles of it in the song.

SOBER - Pink

Remember the time when Björk wore this dress on an awards event, Oscars maybe? I swear, the hate around this dress was petrifying. But, on the contrary the dress suits her quite well, no?

Okay, back on topic. As I have mention on my previous post the collaboration of Björk and Radiohead frontman Thom York, I was expecting it to be released a few days after. But hey, guess luck is on our side.

Here is the official track, a collab of Björk and Thom York (uh, wierd). Time for YOU to play the judge.

Hey there.

I love books, and I am sure, you do too. In this page you will find some of the most interesting (but not necessarily popular!) e-books I have collected and have come across with these past few years. The books that will be featured here were gathered from different sources, mostly from my own collection or from friends (most have tags/signatures inside), close associates and generous sharers from various forums and websites. It should be emphasized that these books are not for sale, and is governed by the “fair use” rule under the copyright laws. Meaning, the free e-books you get here are strictly for your own personal and educational use. The books obtained from this site shall not under any circumstance, be sold by anyone, and the owner of this site will not be responsible for the dishonest users who knowingly violate the copyright of the authors.

The books that will be featured will be from all sorts of genre, classical, fiction, non-fiction, contemporary prose, self-help, business books and many others. From the classical and mythology novels like Odyssey to the modern works of writers like Robert Ludlum, Dan Brown, Paulo Coelho, J.K. Rowling and C.S. Lewis, to self-help writers like Dr. John Gray and Robert Kiyosaki. The choice of books that will be posted solely depends on us, but may be influenced by the requests and suggestions posted. Also, please be warned that each book is password-protected and the password will be given after requesting for it in the comments box.

Anyone is free to download the featured book/s for the week and after said period, it will be archived in our personal database, as we only have a limited storage space online. In that case, the book will only be available by request, unless by some popular demand, we decide to feature the book the second time. We will do our best to respond to each request as soon as possible, so no need to request the same book over and over again as it will only clog our email and will hamper the whole process. Requests made for the same book by the same person more than twice will be ignored, and requesting party will be banned. Also, PASSWORDS ARE REQUIRED for each downloaded e-book, so we could keep track of which books are downloaded more than the others. All you need to do is leave your request for the password at the comment box, and ABSOLUTELY NOTHING ELSE. Requests for *.doc and *.txt formats of books featured will not be granted. If a book listed below is “by request only”, it means the book has a huge file size and you can make your request by sending an email to us, If you are not amenable to any of these conditions, do not read any further and leave this page in peace.

The books shall be in various popular formats — either in Adobe (*.pdf), or Repligo (*.rgo) this one provides an e-book reader for different platforms, PC, mobile phones, Palm and other handheld or portable PCs (PPC). Sometimes, there will also be books in other formats, especially if for some reason, we could not convert them to PDF or Repligo, as in the case of, Mobipocket (*.prc), Lit (*.lit) and PalmReader (*.pdb).

If you plan to read the book in your PC, we recommend downloading the PDF version since it is one of the most popular viewer at present. However, if you have an S60 phone or a portable pc (PPC), we recommend you to try Repligo as it is particularly helpful when you are always on the go and would like to keep your favorite novel or important business book handy with you all the time. Since half of the books we have on archive right now is in Repligo, we strongly suggest you to try it and if you don’t like it, you can always choose to convert the book into MS Word, or you can download the PDF version here again. We have provided here in our download section Repligo viewers for different platforms, for your convenience.

Now, so much for the blah? let?s keep the ball rolling? happy reading to all.
