Dum Dum Girls covers The Smiths



Not a huge fan of DDG normally, but this is quite catchy and makes me feel a tad bitter better about getting assfucked by midterms.

Tennis: Cape Dory

 

This is Tennis' album Cape Dory (2011). Tennis has a delicate sound, but the gorgeous vocals are grounded with consistently solid drum lines. This isn't a forgettable album, Cape Dory is going to stick around. Beautiful, breezy vintage pop with a dreamy lo-fi edge (pretty and girly things aren't allowed over here ).This makes me want to sail boats and live my life in a Newport Pleasure ad.


would you like tots with that shake?

BL§§D ØU†: 3MPIR3 §†Å†3


I saw Blissed Out play at S!CK Santos Party House last month and it was awesome. The fact that their graphics were anime porn made me love them even more. This is their new album off AMDISCS Future Reserves, called 3MPIR3 §†Å†3 (translation: Empire State, for all you idiots who don't speak witch house.) They credit Gang Gang Dance as a major influence--and it suffices to say that if you're into witch house, you better download this if you wanna b kewl.

This is a picture that came up when I searched Blissed Out. From left: Sasha Winn (Blissed Out), Travis Egedy (Pictureplane), and Alex Winter (Blissed Out.) Love it.

You're a woman, I'm a machine.


Here's an old favorite, Death From Above 1979. They released one full album, You're A Woman, I'm A Machine in 2005 and proceeded to have a massive bloody feud and split, never to reunite....or so we thought. But friends, DFA is back, and playing at Coachella (which I'm going to.) The day I heard this I pretty much wept tears of joy. 

Here's the aforementioned first album (there are half a billion remixes of these songs as well.) Let's hope another one comes along soon.

Optimus Maxiumus



Chicago electronic duo Gatekeeper packs a fucking punch. They take witch house, but make it a little less gay gives it some balls (hey I love witch house, but I also love making fun of it.) It's a melange of traditional electronic sounds--a little bit detroit electronic, a little bit Autechre, disco and dubstep. Last.fm describes it as "skull disco." I'll take it.

Von Haze


Saw this duo at Santo's Party House in NYC last night. Actually, I prefer them live--they're fuckin loud as hell and the distortion doesn't carry over onto this EP from 2010. However, it's solid in it's own right and totally worth downloading even if you don't think you like VH. 

StoneSoul.


I'm giving you a gift trust me and DL this gem. This is from the mystery man of soul, Lee Moses.
