This is the debut full length album from RAC ("Remix Artist Collective") which is the solo project of André Allen Anjos out of portland. This is a great electronic indie pop record featuring vocals from TONS of awesome artists. This is one of the best things I've heard in a long time, makes me want to go for a drive in a convertible with an awesome sound system :)

RIYL: ICONAPOP, CVRCHES, Tokyo Police Club, Tegan and Sara, Natalie Portman's Shaved Head
Recommended Tracks: 1, 3, 5, 6, 7, 12, 14

1. (4:40) Let Go - This track features Kele & MNDR. Infectious melody set largely by the base groove, both male and female vocals.
2. (3:08) Ello Ello - This one has Body Language on the track. Starts with a very 80s sound. Reminds me a lot of Annie (as in Anniemal). Very bubble gum pop sounding. Female vocals.
3. (3:17) Hollywood - Features Penguin Prison. This is a rock-pop track. Great instrumentation, mid-tempo.
4. (1:25) Cells - Instrumental track, really cool effects.
5. (3:33) Hard to Hold - A new Tegan and Sara song!! Literally :)
6. (3:06) Tourist - Tokyo Police Club, sounding a lot like Tokyo Police Club. But I really love this song, a lot.
7. (3:40) Tear You Down - Alex Ebert gives us the vocals on this fun alt-rock track. The vocals have a more classic rock feel.
8. (1:19) Sixteen - Another instrumental track that acts as a build into the next track.
9. (4:37) Seventeen - Starts with just vocals and a xylophone sounding thing, builds into a catchy and very poppy song that I cant help but bob my head to.
10. (4:23) Repeating Motion - Karl King sings on this track. It has a similar vibe to an uptempo Death Cab song...
11. (4:45) All I Got - Perter Moren sings this one, it sounds a little too much like track 10 as far as instrumentation goes...
12. (4:09) I Should've Guessed - Features Speak. This is possibly my favorite track. Up tempo but mellow at the same time. I really love this guy's voice.
13. (2:49) Ready For It - Features a vocal track from St. Lucia. I think this one is kind of boring personally.
14. (4:07) 405 - I am all for a new song with YACHT on board. This one does not disappoint.
15. (6:31) We Belong - Katie Herzig sings us this song with a slow build. Drums kick in around 2 minutes in.
16. (3:35) Cheap Sunglasses - This one seems the most main stream to me, reminds me of Natalie Portman's Shaved Head a little bit. SUPER catchy.
