Becoming Clear

11:24 AM

It’s raining. Again. Raining like when we finally came home from the night out, raining like when we left the house early in yesterday’s morning. And wasn’t it raining the entire week through, anyway? The weekend is here and the fog in our heads needs to clear. Good morning!

Ariel Pink : Round and Round (Little Loud Remix) [Download]


Korallreven ft. Victoria Bergsman : Honey Mine [Download]


Joe Worricker : Bobby Blue (Lissvik Remix) [Download]

Rubber is already the third single by our favourite Yuck and Mr Stuart Braithwaite’s remix is a small, but nice, free addition to it. A debut full length will also be ready by  January 2011 on Fat Possum. Fixers again are some steps on the career ladder behind: the young Oxford quintet is by now only selling Amsterdam as a tour cassette (or offers it with remixes as free download). More should follow soon, but for now there’s also a video of the song you can watch here.  Touring leads us to Ariel Pink, who currently spent some weeks on European roads. Though, the above, joyful remix by the young British producer Little Lould only goes for journey provision on the next US tour, which started yesterday. So we have to get something back from over the Atlantic ocean instead and it’s Korallreven’s upcoming single Honey Mine, which can be pre-ordered  from the store of Vancouver (Canada) label Acéphale – featuring a remix by Dan Lissvik. Whilst, the Studio genius is mixing the milksop out of Joe Worricker.

HEALTH ‘Disco2′ out in June

05:27 PM

It has been an open secret for quite a while now but today the dear City Slang confirmed that HEALTH will release the second issue of their ‘remix disco series’ with Disco2 this summer. The LP will of course feature numerous remixes of tracks from the band’s last year’s stunning Get Color album and with CFCF and Pictureplane to remixers from the first HEALTH/DISCO LP are on board again joining a list of some of the hottest rising talents across the globe including Small Black, Javelin (both Brooklyn-NYC), the fantastic and mysterious Salem, British electronic favourite Gold Panda and Tobacco (Tom Fec from Black Moth Super Rainbow) among others.

Too, HEALTH got not only together with the infamous Crystal Castles for another remix (of “Eat Flesh”) after the surprising success of the CC’s Crimewave-re-edit, but went to studio with legendary producer Alan Moulder, who produced U2’s Pop as well as albums for the likes of Jesus and the Mary Chain, Nine Inch Nails and Smashing Pumpkins. The result is the new HEALTH single “USA Boys”, which will open Disco2. See the complete tracklisting, two downloads and release dates below:
