Secondhand Sunday, The Natural History

This edition comes a little late, as I have been getting ready the review and interview from the Robbers on High Street show on Friday night to post within the new few days.

 Today’s secondhand Sunday is a band we haven’t heard from in a very long time, The Natural History. The Startime International band broke around the time of The Strokes and and were even featured on the ‘Yes New York’ compilation.  Sadly the band broke up in March of this year after looking for a new label and not being able to really work with a band member shake up.  The Natural History did make some amusing videos though that certainly reminded me of my college days.

Here is one of my favorites, watch The Natural History’s ‘Watch This House’ HERE

Calvin Harris Remixes Passion Pit

I think the title says it all. Calvin Harris recently remixed Passion Pit’s ‘The Reeling’ and the only reaction that can explain this is ‘WOW’. Combining two of the current hottest musical forces Harris manages to give a whole new life to this Passion Pit song….just when you didn’t think one of their songs could possibly get any better.  Giving the song a little softer tone and a brilliant into bassline I can only imagine what would happen if these guys made a record together. 

Passion Pit is currently on tour so don’t forget to check them out in your city! Tour dates can be found at their Myspace.
