Ducktails to release Wish Hotel EP October 23


Right off Ducktails‘ January release of The Flower Lane, the side project of Real Estate’s Matt Mondanile is back with five-song EP Wish Hotel. Immediately Mondanile lays it on thick in “Tie-Dye”, with a consistent cymbal ride, heavy beats and that signature laid-back vocal styling of which Real Estate is so fond. It’s a sound that blends electronic traits with those of psychedelic. Mondanile retracts from the direction he took with The Flower Lane, returning Ducktails to solo status.

Archie Bronson Outfit: Shark’s Tooth [mp3]

Archie Bronson Outfit

Archie Bronson Outfit‘s single “Shark’s Tooth” seems to be set in a time and space completely separate from existence we know. Its drastically elevated tempo is dance-floor worthy, though precisely too high. It is surf music taken to a brand new, quite radical level. Archie Bronson Outfit has this beat-driven euphoria that is sure to whisk you away to a heavenly place buried in your subconscious, where all you care to do is dance until your feet blister and fall apart. A fair warning needs to be given to the mopey, sad youth of today: Do not listen to Archie Bronson Outfit. You might actually learn to enjoy yourself.

Four Tet Announce First Album In Over Four Years!


The last Four Tet album was released well over four years ago, so it’s a bit surprising to hear Kiernan Hebden has a new one on the horizon. That new one has a name: There Is Love In You. And it has a release date: January 26, 2010. Expect good things from the Domino Records release; we’ll all be treated with a two-track 12″ single early next month for the a-side track “Love Cry” and a b-side dubbed “Our Bells”. There Is Love In You will be released via CD, LP, and mp3. Read More »Four Tet Announce First Album In Over Four Years!

Lightspeed Champion: Falling Off The Lavendar Bridge [Album Review]

Lightspeed Champion

Devonte Hynes was once in a band called Test Icicles and if you’re aware of that group’s blend of indie-rock, hip-hop and punk, be prepared to be surprised, ‘cause Hynes’s new project Lightspeed Champion is a pretty big change. Instead of the loud guitars that fit well with similar groups like pre-Islands band The Unicorns, Hynes now focuses his talent on creating minimalistic orchestral-like movements with a violin and acoustic guitar.

The Notwist: The Devil, You & Me [Album Review]

The Notwist

Written by Jon Hegglund

The first time I listened to The Devil, You & Me, I put it on the iTunes and walked away from the computer to do some chores around the house. At one point, after I thought the album had played in its entirety, a muted, pretty acoustic guitar came floating out over the computer speakers. I thought, initially, that it was the opening to Nick Drake’s lovelorn folk ballad, “Northern Sky.” Before my confusion could be cleared up—wait, “Ni” should come before “No,” right?—Markus Acher’s quiet, melancholy voice dropped in and I realized that, yes, this was still The Notwist, with “Gone Gone Gone,” their brief and beautiful coda to the album.
