The new Caribou LP Swim drops Tuesday 4.20.10, if you haven’t preordered it I highly suggest it, if not pick it up at his merch booth, I hope he has another tour CD to give out this time around. The record has been on repeat and one song that stands out for me over the singles that are leaking is this Hannibal track, the melody is addicting and the horns in the breakdown are spot on.
Matthew Dear has been on a roll, just finished remixing The xx now onto Charlotte Gainsbourg, I keep looping the first 15 seconds over and over.
Poor Beach Fossils I feel like i’ve posted all their songs that I can get my hands onto ISO50. With bands like Beach Fossils, Real Estate and ARMS we will have a nice soundtrack to sunny summer evenings.
I saw our resident DJ Slow Hands play the other night for the 99% design conference here in New York, he dropped this remix of Phoenix that made me end up looking over his shoulder every 5 minutes.
The new Four Tet LP came out today, its a pretty massive album to come out for a January release which is usually a slow month to put out albums. I tried to describe the opening song to the album as its like an organic cover by The Field of Sally Shapiro if she was fronting a Dream Pop group instead of doing Disco.
Here’s a preview/leaked single of the upcoming Caribou LP that’s coming out in March, Dan Snaith is sounding like Erlend Oye here in sections, really nice and upbeat but has a lo-fi touch to it, I wonder what this will do for Caribou live?
Joy Orbison may only have his second EP out and seeing how much talk there was about him in 2009 he will definitely make an impact on 2010 if and when he drops his LP for everyone. Its a nice take on Dubby Techno with small reference’s of Burial meets Pepe Bradock.
Now we completely change gears with a Southwestern feeling song by Taken By Trees, I know its maybe filed under indie rock but I can see slow disco heads playing the the crap out of this song.
