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:

…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:

Air: Mer du Japon June 18, 2007

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.

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.

Dawn Landes

I’ve made the conclusion that if you live amongst corn fields, you become more susceptible to folk music. I mean, aside from the fact that one might have been innately attracted to the sound of a mandolin or a banjo, the corn field factor definitely fits in to the picture.
Anyway…Dawn Landes is today’s spot light.
Landes has a pretty stellar resume. She’s worked as a recording engineer for musicians like Hem, Joseph Arthur, and Ryan Adams. Landes has also supported musicians like Andrew Bird, Feist, and M83. To top that off, she makes excellent music. If you’re into good experimental alt-folk but not to the extreme of Joanna Newsome, you should listen to Landes. So far, she has released 3 albums which are all available on iTunes. Her latest single is a cover of PB&J’s Young Folks. Now we all know that some covers can be good and most are just plain bad. Remember that Ronan Keating song “When You Say Nothing at All”? The theme song for ‘Notting Hill’? Guess who ruined it (for me, at least)? Allison Krauss. Remember “Just Like Heaven” by the Cure? That one was ruined by Katie Melua. But then, of course, you have the artists that actually do the job right. Best cover ever? Jeff Buckley’s cover of Leonard Cohen’s “Hallelujah”. I guess what I’m trying to say here is that Dawn Landes’ cover of Young Folks is absolutely worth listening to.
