Hoodie Allen and G-Eazy are going out on tour together! The indie-rock-flipping rappers will be traveling all over the East Coast and Midwest in September; I’ve already got tickets to the Atlanta date. I’m stoked to finally see Hoodie live; IC has been covering him for a long time.
Soundsupply, the music-discovery service whose creators I interviewed recently, is back with a new 10 albums for 15 bucks. This one includes IC faves I Used to Be a Sparrow, Mason Jennings, and Mansions; from the clips in the video below, I’m super-excited about La Dispute and Talons.
I’m getting back into running (it’s always more fun to be a runner than to turn yourself into a runner), so I need music. And RunHundred is there for me, with its monthly Top 10. —Stephen Carradini
If you were working on a workout music time capsule—trying to show future generations what folks listened to in the gym in 2012—the highlights from August alone would nearly do the trick.
In this month’s top 10, running favorites LMFAO, Flo Rida, and Pink all made appearances. Pitbull turned up twice—once in a remix and once with Shakira. And, the year’s two biggest hits (“Call Me Maybe” and “Somebody That I Used to Know”) were both reinvented as club tracks.
Here’s the full list, according to votes placed at Run Hundred–the web’s most popular workout music blog.
Flo Rida – Whistle – 103 BPM
Pitbull & Shakira – Get It Started – 129 BPM
The Wanted – Chasing the Sun – 129 BPM
Calvin Harris & Ne-Yo – Let’s Go – 130 BPM
Pink – Blow Me (One Last Kiss) – 113 BPM
Owl City & Carly Rae Jepsen – Good Time – 126 BPM
Pitbull – Back in Time (Play-N-Skillz Remix) – 128 BPM
Carly Rae Jepsen – Call Me Maybe (Coyote Kisses Remix) – 124 BPM
