The Horrors are back, probably old news to most, but i just couldn't listen to it, just to nervous... Its good though, just really 80s not very dark at all, not that they're a one trick pony or anything... now they're cool an such
Stumbled on the Holloys after hearing they're releasing a new album in the summer, and touring it in the winter... i've seriously been missing out on this! last time they were over was for the ATP curated by The Breeders, i can't believe its taken this long for them to fall on my lap. Think dance band, in the same kinda edge vein as The Rapture, or when the liars did dance music, and even with a bit of a fugazi undercurrent, all band based of course.
You can download 2 of their album's from their site HERE, i suggest you do, and keep an eye out for news on tours etc
AKA Jamie Jones and Lee Foss. The men behind label of the moment Hot Creations released this absolute monster of a summer jam today on Beatport.
Expect to hear it everywhere. It has crossover appeal, in the fact that Ali Love of Justice "Civilization" fame is dropping some of the most addictive lyrics in house music since Akon on "Sexy Chick"... Well not quite, but you get the idea.
Been lucky enough to catch Spectrals play a few times over the last few days, once with Best Coast at KOKO, then the other, as part of the Camden Crawl at our fave Camden haunt The Black Heart. Both shows amazing, with photos to follow i'm sure, but i'm kinda gutted i missed the last date in Brighton.... Where them and Best Coast covered the blink 182 song Dammit (vid above) hope you enjoy...
Receiving this electronic dream the other day in the post really brightened my day. We blogged Climbing Walls late last year, and are so happy the EP is out now, and can't wait to see this band live. Enjoy the full EP below Strange Talk EP by Strange Talk
