MP3 of the Day (and more!) #700: Violet

By on Wednesday, 31st October 2012 at 10:00 am

Pixie Geldof’s band Violet really impressed me at this year’s Great Escape. ‘What You Gave to Me’ was an absolute showstopper; you can watch the performance from Brighton below.) like it? You can also download the song here.



Bands to Watch #260: Echotape

By on Tuesday, 30th October 2012 at 12:00 pm

There aren’t that many bands that can claim that one of their promo videos has been featured as part of an art installation at the Tate Modern. However, Echotape can do exactly that. On the 22nd of October, the band who claim they’re from Wallop (?) on their Facebook page but I’ve read in another interview that they’re from Andover (?) released a double A-sided single, ‘Awakenings’ / ‘Spinning’, and it’s the visual for ‘Spinning’ that got some prime time in the major London gallery. What do they sound like? ‘Spinning’ is like a less annoying Vaccines, so there’s a sense of poppy rock, yet it still sounds vaguely anarchic.


But flip the single to ‘Awakenings’, and you might think you’re listening to an entirely different band. There is a sonic eeriness yet timelessness of Sigur Ros‘s ‘Hoppipolla’. Then there is this “AAI” (Amalgamated Aesthetic Industries) group explained in this interview by Est. 1987 that makes them sound like they’re involved in some kind of weird cult.


Are these guys we want with us when the revolution comes? Not sure yet, as this post is all I could put together without an official bio. But in the meantime, keep your eye on them. They’re making their London live headline debut on the 9th of November at the Garage. For more, you can download earlier song ‘Came Into My Blood’ below.


MP3 of the Day #699: Bear in Heaven

By on Tuesday, 30th October 2012 at 10:00 am

In August, we gave away this remix of Bear in Heaven‘s ‘Kiss Me Crazy’, by BNJMN. This week, we’ve got another remix of the same song; this time, by Greenpoint, New York City-based r&b duo Beacon. Listen to and grab it below.


MP3 of the Day #698: The Twilight Sad

By on Monday, 29th October 2012 at 10:00 am

The Twilight Sad are releasing a remix album, called ‘No One Can Ever Know – The Remixes’, will be out on the 26th of November. Would you like a freebie? Rolling Stone is hosting the Tom Furse dub mix of ‘Not Sleeping’; you can download the remix here.


MP3 of the Day #697: Divine Fits

By on Thursday, 25th October 2012 at 10:00 am

Not sure how I feel about RJD2 remixing the fabulous ‘Would That Not Be Nice’ of Divine Fits‘ debut album ‘A Thing Called Divine Fits’. The vocals feel a bit weird, but I guess this is more palatable to the club kids?

I just caught them live at the 9:30 here in Washington DC; read the review over here.


MP3 of the Day #696: Errors

By on Wednesday, 24th October 2012 at 10:00 am

Glasgow’s Errors have tapped Marple’s Egyptian Hip Hop to remix their track ‘Relics’, and the results are below. If you like it, you can download it for your very own too.
