I like lyrics about being high. I don’t know why; I just do.
New Metronomy needs no introduction, I’m only sad that we have to wait until March 2014 for the new album Love Letters. SUCH a sexy voice.
Annie Mac is right: this track in a club would blow your mind. I look forward to it.
Out on Parlophone 23 September.
Holy fuck this is a truly dark little beauty. One can always rely on Heidi to pull something dirty out of her box (!) and when she played it on her radio 1 show in the early hours of this morning I was pretty excited. Tale of Us on the remix of Mano le Tough‘s Primitive People, forthcoming on Permanent Vacation.
Happy friday everyone.
I’m a bit wary of tracks called The [Something] Track or Song (The Birdie Song, The Ketchup Song, The Clapping Song you get my drift), but Claude Vonstroke has done us proud with Dirtybird‘s forthcoming Can’t Wait/The Clapping Track, out 6 August. Particularly great is Can’t Wait. Really lovely plinky tones and sexy snippet of vocal over a building bassline drop. Very nice indeed.
Hands in the ay-errr for some piano hoooooouuse!
When Saints Go Machine‘s new album Infinity Pool came out on !K7 in May, and Iodine is the follow up to first single Love and Respect. It’s been doing the rounds on the remix circuit but this is my favourite; a submission from Maddslinky under his Zed Bias alias.
A free download, a nice bassline to add a bit of pep to the original, and a REALLY nice vocal from lead singer Nikolaj Vonsild (sounds very much like Antony and the Johnsons’ Antony Hegarty on Daniel Bortz‘s Boyz II Men, a track we play a lot when we’re in afterparty mode).
Great for this somewhat moody hot weather we’re having.
And we don’t need an excuse to listen to Boyz II Men again (so beautiful but always makes me want to cry)
