There is one song I always dance to regardless where and when: Suspicious Characters by The Blood Arm. The song isn’t new to the scene, in fact its been around for quite a while. Check out the video to Suspicious Characters:

 Plans & Apologies caught my attention when Pandazpop sent me a link to their new video, Mel Gibson’s Iraq. This seven piece band is headquartered in Derby, England and they come with a political message. If you enjoy Stephen Malkmus’ work and dig stuff like the Kinks, you should listen to these guys. Check out the video to Mel Gibson’s Iraq:

Thats it, I’m ditching school and moving to Denmark. Junior Senior tour dates:

08/10 New Orleans, LA – Ryko Convention (Tipitina’s Uptown)

08/11 Boston, MA – Middle East

08/13 New York, NY – Highline Ballroom

08/15 Los Angeles, CA – Roxy

…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.

Art Brut

In a couple of days Art Brut will be releasing their second album: It’s a Bit Complicated. The band got their start with Rough Trade in 2003 and from then on entered the indie rock scene with a promising sound. Formed A Band was a hit in 2004 and without a doubt Nag Nag Nag Nag will do just as well. I was fortunate enough to get my hands on a rare cover of We Are the Scientists’ The Great Escape by Art Brut. Now I’m not big on covers unless its Chan Marshall but this song is just excellent. There is something in Eddie Argos’ slightly off tune vocals that makes you want to put The Great Escape on repeat mode.

Justice

Apparently not watching mtv has costed me some precious music. Justice, for example, has been a favorite on mtv2 for quite some time and I had no idea until just recently. This brilliant duo comes from France and consitsts of Gaspard Augé and Xavier de Rosnay (pronounced Justice). The band is managed by the head of the Ed Banger records, Pedro Winter, who also manages Daft Punk. Justice has played at the 2007 Coachella fest and their debut album is to be released on June 11. Their video D.A.N.C.E is as cool as Fujiya & Miyagi’s Ankle Injury. Check it out.
