Friday Genius Ten “Who Says A Rock Band Can’t Play Hard To Define Electronic Music?”—now with cats
Leave your random or Genius Ten in comments. Mine this week is based on a show I saw Tuesday at Stubb’s: Ratatat.
Original song: “Loud Pipe” by Ratatat
1) “Hearts On Fire”—Cut Copy
2) “In The Morning”—Junior Boys
3) “Needy Girl”—Chromeo
5) “The Warning”—Hot Chip
6) “Robot Rock”—Daft Punk
7) “Beatific”—Glass Candy
8) “Destroy Everything You Touch”—Ladytron (Hot Chip remix)
10) “Don’t Stop”—Brazilian Girls
