- I was going to post about Swan Lake last week but i thought i'd give Beast Moans a few listens first. Swan Lake is a new band featuring Daniel Bejar (Destroyer, New Pornographers), Spencer Krug (Wolf Parade, Sunset Rubdown) and Carey Mercer (Frog Eyes). I also thought about calling this post "indie hard on". The album's like a beginner's comp to all of their bands, not necessarily a bad thing. We're looking somewhere in the top 10 of my end of year list with this one.
Swan Lake - All Fires
Swan Lake - Are You Swimming In Her Pools?
- The video for Simian Mobile Disco's Hustler just came out. Probably the hottest dance track of the summer that never got played in any club ive been too :(. An innocent game of chinese whispers goes HORRIBLY wrong (videos nothing special, i just love the track). check the youtube (NSFW i guess).
- Hot gig announced this week: Klaxons and Switch are playing POGO @ POD, Dublin on Nov. 11th. I guess thats an excuse for me to post tracks huh. My favourite track from the Klaxons and 2 new less blogged about Switch remixes.
Klaxons - Atlantis to Interzone
Bugz In The Attic - Don't Stop The Music (Switch Remix)
Lily Allen - LDN (Switch Remix)
- "The Departed's out on Friday, yo. Which is today, I guess. Di Caprio actually seems to have pulled off a Boston accent, and Nicholson looks the shit. Even takes out a huge dildo for a scene, apparently. Also, might be Scorsese's last gangster movie (though he's probably lying). It's the new "Heat"....y'all should see it." (credit: Shane Moore)
- All i hear is "Sidewalk University riddim". Also, in a similar reggae thing (ting): I dont know what this is (colour me stupid) but i found this track (3 mixes of it) on Diplo's maddecent label's server. It was there and then a while later it dissappeared. I dont have anymore info on it though (edit: may have been on his Fabric mix too), so just check it:
Diplo - Notorious (Busy Mix)
