Canada’s Swollen Members are often overlooked, and at times deservedly so. But this new track, “Mr. Impossible,” has made me take notice. Cocksure style mixed with a quirky, banging beat – I’m looking forward to hearing the new album, Daggermouth, out April 12.
London-based electronic producer James Yuill’s new album, Movement in Storm, came out recently on Moshi Moshi, and it’s a good one, full of his trademark slick and innovative production. Check out a couple of remixes of the track “Crying For Hollywood.” First is the Grown Men Remix (Alex Doyle of LCD Soundsystem + Hot Chip and Felix Martin of Hot Chip). Second is the Shir Khan Remix.
I missed all the final LCD Soundsystem shows. Whatever. So I guess I also missed Shit Robot’sperformances which were supposed to be, well, the shit. Fortunately, I can download “Losing My Patience” here. I’ll be damned if this doesn’t sound a lot like Hot Chip, who happen to remix the track.
Times New Viking have a new song available for download, “Ever Falling in Love,” off of their new album due out at the end of this month, Dancer Equired. This lo-fi-style track combines the best of art rock with the tradition of doo-wop. Disagree, please.
This track has been around for a while in one form or another. First Doom and Parallel Thought’s 2006 version, then the version that appeared on Mm…Food. Now here’s another version from 3:33, a teaser for their new release that’s out tomorrow, 333EP-1.
Illin’ P is releasing a bunch of songs leading up to the release of his new mixtape, 3 Lefts 2 Make A R1ght. Like you care. But seriously, you should care. .
Some new hard-rocking, heavy-hitting, sludge-dealing, shit-storming music from Boris off of their new album, Heavy Rocks, due out this spring.
Jokers of the Scene have teamed up with Acid Girls for a tour and a mix. Download here. And tourdates on the flyer:
Neon Indian makes music that sounds like soft ’70s rock performed by Kraftwerk. It warbles and bleeps along, but never pummels you in the face – which is cool, unless you’re into face pummeling. Don’t be ashamed if you are.
Take a listen here.
