Erol Alkan July 28, 2007

…well I might as well give away Erol Alkan. Not that he’s a secret. This London-based dj has re-mastered so many songs I’m not even going to bother to mention them. If you enjoyed the previous songs I’ve posted, you’ll enjoy Erol. A friend of a friend of a friend told me he is coming to the US along with one of the Ed Banger groups but they might be lying.

This is a year old song of a Klaxons remix:

To My Boy’s New Album: Messages June 21, 2007

To My Boy

You will either love or hate these guys. Simplistic lyrics sang with robot-esque vocals which for some might sound familiar (this is probably the art brut fever speaking, everyone sounds like Argos these days. In a good way, that is.), smothered with catchy sounds from electric guitars to synthesizers isn’t exactly for everyone’s ear but if you’re into electro and don’t care much of the profundity of lyrics, you’ll love To My Boy. This duo, from Liverpool, have been around for quite a while but not much of their work has been released in the US. You can get some singles on iTunes OR you can be patient and get their first full length album, Messages, on July 2nd.

I really want to post Model but filexoom is being a bitch. So instead, check out the music video to Model. It reminds me to Sesame Streets’ How To segments.  I don’t know…I might be making this up.

Air: Mer du Japon June 18, 2007

Air

Just recently this Parisian duo released the long awaited Mer du Japon EP. If the Beach Boys and Fujiya Miyagi had tube babies, this song is probably what they’d sound like. The EP has 2 remixes of Mer du Japon and the one done by the Teenagers is brilliant.  So get your copy on iTunes or listen to it on their myspace. Before you leave, check out the music video of Mer du Japon. It might come in handy if you ever need to do an interpretive dance.

Wow. We apologize for the big gaps in between posts. We probably wont be able to post as often as we’d like due to personal commitments but we’ll try to keep the music coming!

 Kavinsky

To keep it short, simple, and mysterious, lets just say that Kavinsky is the zombie of a man who died in a car accident in 1986 and twenty one years later, is emerging from the dark underground to bring back the 80s.

Ali Love

Ali Love emerged from the East London scene in 2006 and made K-hole a summer anthem. In late October 2006, Ali released his first EP titled Camera on a Pole. The EP includes 3 songs and a Mustapha remix of K-hole. Its a shame that US’ iTunes don’t have him up for downloads but you can try uploading his EP through 7digital.com. Just a heads up though: I tried to download stuff through 7digital but they gave me a hard time, all i have now is a useless wma file, inconvertible to mp3 format. So, for now, Ali Love’s myspace will suffice. Check Ali Love out, he has 2 new songs up, both are strikingly reminiscent to the Ramones…on Ketamine and with a disco ball backdrop of course.
