    So I might accidentally be the only person completely disinterested in the original “Suit & Tie.” It’s not that I don’t like it, I just nothing it. It’s like this whole Molly craze that’s going on right now, I totally get that a ton of people are into it but it’s doing absolutely nothing for me and I don’t want to force myself to try it. But then, THIS. A Four Tet remix fell out of the internet and into my lap, and I couldn’t be happier.

    JT’s chorus has been placed over some cool drums, and his angelic voice is manipulated into a whole bunch of nonsense words to form the beat of the song. The whole thing is very chill and pleasant to the ears.  If you’re not that into the original song like me, but you like things that are good, you’ll probably enjoy this. If not, just look at the picture of Justin above.  How could you say no to that face? You CAN’T. YOU CAN’T SAY NO.

    I know Ingrid Michaelson is a little on the mellow side for TheJillboard.com’s true taste, but this is such a crazy-cool concept for a music video.

    In what seems like one long continuous take, and with a little help from some special effects make up artists, Ingrid’s face transforms from one music legend to next: from Lennon to Bowie to Gaga.

    I’m really diggin’ it because it brilliantly conveys the message of her song visually, and in a unique, original way. The idea that your skin is a canvas, and you can be anyone you want to be, but underneath the mask and glitz and glamour, we’re all human and we’re all the same.

    …I was just waiting for her skin to fall off at the end, much like Robbie Williams’ ‘Rock DJ’ video circa 2000. Am I aging myself with that reference? Regardless, that was hands down the most scarring music video I saw as a pubescent tween. So, thanks for keeping it clean, Ingird!

    Here’s a chillin-by-the pool-watching-a-squirrel-and-pretending-he’s-in-this-music-video kind of song. Just because I’m doing that now means that most people will think that when they hear this song.

    Here’s a more common thought about the song: a cool music video with a hipsters-in-Brooklyn kind of feel. It’s slow, it’s chill, it’s breathy, it’s nice. A bit of a different feel for Jillboard, but let’s embrace change like we embrace bad comparisons on a music website.

    The song is from The Echo Friendly’s upcoming  LP Love Panic. Also, if you recognize this song, it’s because you watch GIRLS on HBO and it was in it. That’s why.

    There isn’t even really much to say about this. Animal Collective is one of my favorite bands to just act silly to, and this definitely fits the silly expectations! Released on their website along with the new track “Gotham,” this song better get ready to be overplayed by yours truly. Like their other songs it is PURE nonsense, and singing along just seems like a hassle. However, it’s still incredibly catchy so I would give it a listen if I were you!

    Be careful though, I’m convinced listening to Animal Collective a little too much turns you into a cartoon character. A cool one though, like Leela from Futurama. None of that Family Guy garbage.

    Woah, so this track is just straight up intense. It may only be two minutes long, but it’s two minutes of raw Kany-emotions (just wait.. it will catch on). Remember that female choir version of  Radiohead’s “Creep” used in the trailer for The Social Network? Well here it is again, but ironically synchronized with Kanye’s verse from “Forever” by Drake and a simple drum beat. This remix makes his original verse sound more serious and church-worthy, even if the lines consist of rape talk and my personal favorite ‘WAAAAT NUTTIN!” I don’t know, something about that chorus in the background man.  I could hear a song about string cheese by The Wiggles set to this “Creep” cover and still cry. So overall: awesome job Urban Noize, this one’s on repeat.
