Hey, young, savvy readers! Tell me if this is gonna fly with you or not, okay?
Or, I guess it’s not a “new album,” really…but a new “mixtape”? (Those are two different things, yeah?)
And…it’s a little hard to tell (cuz again: I’m literally just reading Twitter tweets, here)…buuuuut…it seems to feature the likes of Carly Rae Jepsen, A. G. Cook, Tove Lo, Kim Petras, Mykki Blanco, Brooke Candy, CupcakKe, and Pabllo Vitar, among others?
I can’t tell when/how it’s coming out or anything… but I guess I can show you all the tweets, and you can…like, read/decide “for yourselves”?
Does that count???
I’m sorry… I’m just really struggling.
Hopefully you’re excited about new stuff from Charli XCX and all, but basically: you all tell me: is this THE NEWS?
Am I “REPORTING THE NEWS TO YOU” right now??
Mr P, do I still get a paycheck for this?

According to the headline above, Oneohtrix Point Never and PC Music head A. G. Cook have just shared a new track. Following up their joint holiday tune from 2014 (“Bubs”), Oneohtrix Point Never has this time tapped A. G. Cook for a remix of “Sticky Drama,” who tapped back with a wild, gorgeous rendition of the Garden of Delete track, which includes a warbly superstar falsetto that’ll make doves cry.
And in case you missed it, the power couple dropped their version of the 500 best tracks of 2016 the other day. I mean, that’s cool and all, but it’s, like, isn’t that our job? 🙁
“Sticky Drama” was a highlight from Oneohtrix Point Never’s 2015 album Garden Of Delete. The song already got a ridiculous hour-long Four Tet remix, and today another electronic visionary, PC Music mastermind A. G. Cook, has given it a whirl. Cook’s version accentuates the song’s goofy, colorful appeal and is arguably superior to … More »
Back in August, PC Music‘s Danny L Harle teamed up with vocalist Carly Rae Jepsen to release one of the most mainstream pieces of the record label’s work. Despite the label’s notorious tendency for creating extreme and highly stylized pop songs that cross into strange and hypnotic realms, the partnering with Jepsen proved to be a truly fluid and worthwhile endeavor. The track, “Super Natural,” even received an official music video to go along with it, adding an extra layer of meaning and aesthetic to the already drenched song.
This week, however, the song was re-released on Spotify as part of PC Music’s second official compilation. Iconic underground acts like A.G. Cook, Hannah Diamond, Life Sim and easyFun each contributed to the 10-track collection, culminating in a truly diverse and exciting listening experience. Powerful and mysterious ballads, fast-paced dance heaters and everything in between can be found in droves, all while maintaining the unique PC Music vibe that hooked its audience in the first place.
As the electronic dance music and pop spheres entwine even further, it’s collectives like PC Music that are taking the most substantial steps toward the future of the hybrid genre. With big names like Jepsen and Charlie XCX now involving themselves in the label’s releases, it appears more and more likely that they’ll have a significant hand in shaping the direction of the movement as it progresses.
Check out Danny L Harle and Carly Rae Jepsen’s collaboration below, and look further down for the complete compilation.

Charli XCX’s new album is out next year. Meanwhile: VROOM VROOM!
PC Music is continuing its multi-tier attack exposing the radical DNA of chart music with a new compilation. Appropriately titled PC Music Volume 2, the 10-track release compiles eight previously-released songs — like Hannah Diamond’s “Fade Away,” Pizza L Harle’s “Super Natural” (with Carly Rae Jepsen), A. G. Cook’s “Superstar,” etc. — as well as a couple new tracks, such as felicita’s “a new family” and EASYFUN’s “Monopoly” (ft. Charli XCX/Carly Rae Jepsen collaborator Noonie Bao).
Guess we’ll have to save our lipgloss and cherry pops for another time!
