Freedom Fry - Junkie (Penguin Prison Remix)

After all the heavy posts this week, I thought it would be good to include something a little softer and sweeter, but no less awesome.  Penguin Prison's remix of Junkie by Freedom Fry hits the spot nicely.  

Penguin Prison takes the very indie rock sounding original and makes it very danceable by putting a bit of a nu disco twist in while still keeping a bit of the indie rock feel. The entirety of the vocals stay in the remix for those of you looking for something to sing along with, and this is a perfect song to sandwich into your summer road trip playlists or for your beach lounge sessions. 

If this is the style you're looking for this weekend, add this and the rest of Freedom Fry's Remixes EP on Apple Music or Spotify.


Astronaughty - Try Much Harder

Today for our Mellow Monday post, we've got something a bit different from the fresh NYC electro/pop duo Astronaughty. Try Much Harder has a sound that is particularly reminiscent of The Postal Service and Death Cab for Cutie, really catchy and melodic with vocals that seem both fragile and powerful at the same time.

The guys of Astronaughty are giving this one away for free, so hit the download icon in the player below to grab your copy.

Tabrill - Letters ft. Youth Allowance

We've got something a little different for you all today, a genre defying collaboration between two Brisbane based acts - future beats/trap/chill/electronic/general cool sounds producer Tabrill, and indie rock group Youth Allowance.

The idea came about as many strange yet great collaboration ideas come from - in an alcohol-influenced conversation at a party. Will from Youth Allowance approached Tabrill about doing a track together, and the two parties came together to create the hybrid, genre-defying (or maybe genre defining? yes?) Letters. A really nice mix of indie instrumentation and lyricism brought together with Tabrill's electronic production experience, and the outcome is better than anyone could have hoped.

Have a listen to the track below, and if you're feeling it, pick it up on iTunes or stream with your Spotify account. Make sure to follow both Tabrill and Youth Allowance on Soundcloud to keep up with their new material.  We are.

WDSTCK - So Free (Millesim Remix)

Millesim have come up with a really laid back and summery remix of WDSTCK's So Free.  While the original has a bit of a tropical feel, it has a much quicker pace and heavier drums. Where Millesim really shines is their stripped back and lounge style indie tropical vibe that allows a lot more expression in the melodic elements of the track. Even the vocals seem more expressive and free in this, a bit of a fitting description for its title. We hope you enjoy this remix wherever you happen to be spending your mellow Monday.

The Millesim remix was released back in mid-june as part of the remix package for So Free, with 4 other remixes. It is available from iTunes here.

Urban Cone - Weekends (Feki Remix)

Feki has worked his production magic once again, this time on a remix of Urban Cone. This flip of the original indie song Weekends keeps much of the indie vibe while also adding the electronic/trap flare that Feki has been building recognition for. This is a feel good track perfect for your afternoon chill session or finishing up your workday, whether that is leading into or coming out of the weekend.

It doesn't look like there is a release of the Feki remix as of yet, so stream the heck out of it. If you want to pick up the original Weekends, it is out as part of Urban Cone's release Polaroid Memories, out on iTunes.

Christian Schultz & Miskeyz - Welcome To Paradise ft. Emma Carn

For our Mellow Monday post, we're bringing you a summery indie flavoured jam from Christian Schultz and Miskeyz featuring vocals from Emma Carn. Welcome to Paradise has a really nice mix of summer flavours, with some definitely indie and folk influence in both the instrumentation and lyrical content, combined with some stripped back house percussion elements. If this doesn't get you through your Monday with a smile, I'm not sure what will.

Welcome to Paradise is available for purchase from iTunes here.
