Thievery Corporation have released a collection of 18 dubbed versions of various artists on their new Album. While none of their albums have approached The Mirror Conspiracy I always enjoy a TC album.

Their ability to blend all things dub, electronica, and bossa nova is pretty much unparalleled. Thievery Corporation and you could say the Thievery Formula is pretty much takes all the music I like most and mushes it all together into one record and often times one song. Sometimes with fantastic results, sometimes not so much.

Album review from somebody that can write better than I.

Versions gathers 18 Thievery Corporation remixes from across a music spectrum that only the most eclectic could love. The vinyl-popping digital duo embraces '60s psychedelia with the Doors and '60s kitsch with Herb Alpert and the Tijuana Brass. They put them all into the mixmaster, usually adding the downtempo jazzy electro-lounge beats upon which they built their early reputation.

Check out some my favorite remixes from their latest effort.

Mp3: Nouvelle Vague - "This is not a love song"
Mp3: Damien - "Habanos Days"*

MOKB has some other tracks as well here. I think they missed their chance on that Doors song could have been good.

Buy it! from Insound here.

That's bizarre. I downloaded the NV track but when I went to open it, I got a message saying the track doesn't exist. Is it from a music rental site like rhapsody?

Here are the lyrics for "Habanos Days”

Din toata viata mea
Am amintiri
Iar toata lumea
Nu m-a lasat, nu m-a lasat
Sa viu acasa

Mai am o sansa acum
Sa n-o dau gres
Si visul meu
Sa mi-l urmez, sa mi-l urmez
Cu o viata noua


From all of my life
I have memories
And all those people
Didn't let me, didn't let me
To come home

I have another chance now
Hope not to miss it
And my dream
I want to follow it, I want to follow it
Into a new life
