The XX have opened up and share Coexist with us a week before their physical album comes out on Sept. 11th on Young Turks. Also, visit their site and share the album with friends, they put some time in putting together a visual map of people sharing the album and how its hopping around.
Kompakt’s Thomas Fehlmann has a new LP coming out on March 29th called Gute Luft, Fehlmann has kept himself busy in recent years doing more melodic ambient work with delightful soft kicks which makes him a pretty diverse creative since doing The Orb and his Dub material on Lowflow which I loved.
Here it is if you haven’t heard it: Flying Lotus with Thom Yorke, I think it gets better with every listen!
Another album that’s still kind of far away is Paul White & The Purple Brain which is slated for June, it is Paul White’s second album that sounds like it will touch on some 60’s psychedelic rock with some beats keeping it Paul White style.
I’m not sure if this song is off the tour only 7 inch from The Xx merch booth but its one of my favorite guitar parts by them.
If you haven’t already been on Hype Machine then today might be a good day to jump on and check it out. It’s a stream of select blogs and the music that is being posted on them.

The standings only last 14 more hours so click here on the heart and help us vote it up if you’re a member. Also be sure to check out all the other blogs on there, always a lot of great music coming up on there.
Flying Lotus released an EP today which included some remixes as well as 2 new ambient tracks, i’m definitely a fan of both, the man has some talent, when you see him live you’d never think this would of came out of him especially when he drops Lil’ Wayne.
Mux Mool has been on tour with Dark Party(Eliot Lipp & Leo 123) for awhile now(I think 2 or 3 months now in a Scion), he’ll probably be at the Chicago Tycho show this weekend, pinch him for me if you see him he will be the 6 foot 4 guy that should be playing but you might be able to catch him in town later the next week or in your town if you don’t live in Chicago because he has been all over the US, either way this is one of my favorites by him.
Nike has a great mix series going for people that workout unlike myself (except i’m starting up a roller hockey team, if you live in Brooklyn and play indoors let me know), one of the better ones on iTunes is the LCD Soundsystem one which is 45:33 mins long. Well DFA is doing a remix EP which includes this Prince Language remix that i’ve heard him use and kill dance floors with, hope its on vinyl.
Went to the Seaport this weekend in Manhattan to see School of Seven Bells and also caught The xx, really nice stripped down…gentle punk? is there such a thing? either way, they have a ton of buzz and definitely worth checking out.
