Stolen – Chaos

Stolen hail from Chengdu and apparently are spearheading the sound of China according to the accompanying blurb. They have caught the ear of Mark Reeder, Berlin based DJ, producer and one time Factory Records employee, who has collaborated with them on this, their first single. Musically it’s a bit New Order lite (Reeder’s mate Mr … Continue reading

Haiku Salut – The More And Moreness

I cannot say Haiku Salut have ever rocked my world despite their impressive lamp show. The More And Moreness was a recent single and one I have recently discovered. And it’s ace, sounding like a cross between the BBC Radiophonic Workshop and New Order 1982/83. And if that isn’t enough there is also a rather … Continue reading

Dead Little Penny – U 4 Me

U 4 Me is a song that crosses the genre borders willy nilly and sounds like Curve, The Cocteau Twins and Lamb amongst others. Nice to see , I mean hear, a band that isn’t constrained by what this or that should sound like. And Hayley Smith’s vocals are fantastic! Get from here. Facebook

Kosmonaut – Debbie Harry’s Smile (Remix)

Leading on from yesterday here is a second remix of Debbie Harry’s Smile this time by Voodoo Reay. Initially, because of the remixer’s name which I guess is a homage to A Guy Called Gerald, I thought this one was going to turn into a full on dance floor affair but it settled down with … Continue reading

State Of The Nation – Amsterdam

I mentioned State of the Nation’s debut single Departed last month. This demo has now appeared on Soundcloud touted as a possible future single. Personally I think it would make a pretty decent follow up to Departed. Let’s hope they don’t remix it to death though! Facebook

Still Corners – Lost Boys

Lost Boys is taken from the forthcoming album Dead Blue. I have to say I am liking the band’s journey over to the synth and electronic side evidenced here and on the previously released non album track Horses At Night. Dead Blue will be out via Wreckinglight Records. You can pre-order one of the many … Continue reading

Something For The Weekend #2

Another threesome for your listening Pleasure. Club 8 – Love Dies Love Dies is taken from the bands forthcoming album Pleasure which is out, via Labrador, on November 20th. Given their last albums have covered electronica, dub, bossa nova and trip hop the next one should be interesting based on this track! The Radio Dept. … Continue reading

Something For The Weekend

How about some electronica for the weekend? Copy For Collapse – Grey Sunday (Proxy Remix) A very good remix of Grey Sunday by Proxy. Not as accessible as the original (which you can find here) but still impresses with a much harder sound. Facebook New Order – Plastic If Restless and it’s pretty boring remixes … Continue reading

Star Horse – Slower Now (Remixes)

I mentioned Star Horse and their excellent Slower Now single last month. It’s now had the remix treatment courtesy of Thunberg and LTZA. Both mixes concentrate on the vocals which stood out on the original and highlight them to great effect. The former is upbeat, almost dancey in places but it’s the latter remix I … Continue reading

Holiday Tuneage!

It’s going to be a bit silent around here for the next couple of weeks whilst I am away but that doesn’t mean that there will be nothing left to listen too judging by this round up post which features some music I have meaning to mention separately but time etc. First up is The … Continue reading
