Like the third season of Game of Thrones, the mashup scene is very much over. But unlike the many beloved characters that George RR Martin ruthlessly kills off, The White Panda still remains. And they’re back with a new album, featuring this awesome chop up of Rihanna’s “Diamonds” and the Game of Thrones theme. And you thought the Chvrches cover was cool…

Okay, so I’m going to be completely honest. This post may or may not have been inspired by the fact that the band is called Us Baby Bear Bones. They’d have to go out of their way to be distinctly bad for me to NOT post this. That said, they sound similar to Au Revoir Simone but with a little more teeth. Atmospheric and just the right amount of melancholy for Sunday night listening.
Also, they’re called Us Baby Bear Bones. Did I mention that yet?
In a world where Chicago has one of the highest violent crime rates in the country, and turds like Chief Keef are at the top of the city’s rap game, it’s refreshing to hear someone like Chance the Rapper step to the mic.

Just don’t call it conscious rap, this is some good kid, m.A.A.d. City shit.
The buzz band cycle has changed in the last few years with the widespread use of digital distribution. Now a band can pick up a lot of attention long before releasing an album, and it’s always a toss up whether or not a finished product will live up to the promise.

These keep leaving me at a loss for words, just listen below:
Well folks, I don’t want to get too long winded on this one. There are few things more exciting than when one of your favorite artists remixes another, scaled infinitely when it turns out absolutely perfect. Chrvches remixing MS MR, to me, falls under that categorization. And if either artist is one you haven’t heard yet, this is surely your vehicle to doing so.
HOT DAMN THIS REMIX IS AMAZING. Just had to get that out of my system.
