“Come To Grief” is the first single off The Molotovs debut “mini” LP And The Heads Did Roll, due September 21 via Fierce Panda. these London lads make use of a punchy brass section to counter the track’s ironically positive-toned melancholy refrain. “City’s Guest” is unique in it’s own right as well, with one of our favorite vocal arrangements of ’09. basically The Molotovs are both everything and nothing else happening in the indie rock world, with some of the best written songs we’ve heard yet this year..
ooooooh, we’re scared! hoosierland creepers tv ghost put us up on some serious haunted house shit. “cold fish”, tvg’s debut LP, is out now on in the red. buy it or we’ll come round your hood and spook you the fuck out. to the mystery machine!
that blood is most def from getting all vampire on Johnny Marr’s sweet guitar love. “Cheat On Me” is the first single from Ignore the Ignorant due September 7th, and it’s done some serious growing on us. the chorus vocals kill it, Jarmans’ throat sounds like he smashed a bottle of J.d. in it.. serving as a reminder for us all that The Cribs will kick your ass if you fuck with them
shit, yes. co. fee of my hollow drum collective remixes ms. badu’s “soldier” off last year’s new amerykah, pt, 1 record. and holy shit, co. fee just wrecks it. the rhythmic elements on this mix are crazy. get into it.
speaking of ian brown, let’s talk some classic madchester. last i heard anything as close as the new Ruling Class, it was early oasis. not definitely maybe oasis, but EARLY oasis.. fade-in and all. Non-manc’s, The Ruling Class give a clear proper nod to the founding fathers with “Marian Shrine”, just released as a double A-side with “Sleeping Beauty”
the most handsome man in manchester is back! we’re not exactly sure what the word “stellify” even means, (being high on x pills maybe?) but whatever, if ian brown says it, its got to be cool. props to dj time stretchon this killer sped up version.
wow! there’s so much that’s ill about this track. …man, when the beat drops @ 0:42 ….or about 1:30 when ms. zheng goes into the mideast-tinged vocal tailing …. 2:36 when the heavier synth enters the mix ….and wow, that outro! and that’s only really the start, there’s just so much incredible shit going on in this remix. we’re blown away. bei bei’s “beauty and the beats” EP is due in september.
why this dude is choking some chick, we have no idea. but we were like, shit if you’re gonna choke somebody, and have a picture of you doing it… on your bands myspace, then we’re posting it..
right. so, Adam Freeland is a DJ and producer from the UK, now based in LA. His new LP Cope is co-produced by Alex Metric and showcases a random hodgepodge of musicians including Joey Santiago from The Pixies, Twiggy Ramirez from Marlyn Manson, Tony Bevilacqua of Distillers/Spinnerette and yes the amazingly talented Tommy Lee from Motley Crue. BUT WAIT THERE’S MORE.. with guest appearences from Soundpool, Brody Dalle (Distillers/Spinnerette and does guest vox on “Borderline”) and DEVO’s Gerald Casale. haha all that and then he recruits some random named Kurt Baumann to front the thing. which is cool and good for that dude, it’s not like he sucks, but wtf?! either way, the result is some pretty dec electro rock… still every time that beat hits, just can’t help but think about Tommy Lee’s late 80’s arena drum masturbation
awwwwww yeah. “top of the world” was the 2nd single released from brandy’s 1998 “never say never” record despite ending up a big hit in europe, particularly the UK, hitting #2 there, “top of the world” was far less successful in the united states than its “never say never” predecessor the massive “the boy is mine”.
we think the darkchild-produced original mix is awesome but this boogiesoul remix puts “top of the world” on some serious late summer jam status. that said, if we were 1998 kickin’ it in the studio with mr boogiesoul we’d maybe have turned down the strings a bit in the song’s middle minute or so. but otherwise this remix just really goes. and oh yeah, harlem world on top of the world!
