Did you know it's our Birthday today? Wait, you didn't? So we shouldn't be looking out for your card in the post? Well...this is embarrassing, we wen't and created a monster of a 'Daily Dose' for you and you didn't even get us a Birthday card. Mmmmm.
We'll let it go this time. We're good like that.
Let's kick things off with Grouper.
Grouper have dropped the video for 'Alien Observer' and it's wonderful. Remember, some people actually get paid to look out for Aliens (lucky bastards).
The track is short, yet sweet. A classic combo if you ask us.
Our friends over at Yvynl posted this lush looking video by Cerise Leang for 'Smoke Screen Dreams'. The video pretty much sums up the title, but we like it.
I spend Record Store Day sat at my computer hoping that our Live Editor James would be able to pick me up the Radiohead release. Wishful thinking? Very much so. His Dad and Brother got a copy though. Conspiracy? Who knows. Anyway, thanks to the internet we can hear the tracks online.
Us Brits get 'Bonkers' by Dizzee Rascal, whilst the Americans get 'Yonkers' by Tyler, The Creator. They also get more Sunshine than us. Anyway...
Lil Silva have put together an electro/dance remix of the track and it's not too bad. Not as good as the original (obviously) but still good.
We don't often get sent remixes in the form of videos, but check out this Sonic Boom remix of 'Scars' by Moon Duo.

Those Yours Truly people have done it again. This time they've put together a wonderful video for Overcoat by John Vanderslice and the Magik*Magik Orchestra. This is definitely recommended viewing.
"Don’t you ever look back on yourself when you were young and go: Yeah, cute?" No, I say, I look back and go: You’re an idiot. "But you have to love your idiot self, because they were trying to be the person that you are today.
