SLEIGH BELLS – TELL EM
With their debut coming out later in the year, courtesy of a certain M.I.A., the new rulers of noise-pop prove that their early demo EP wasn’t a one off by releasing a sneaky track. It’s the wonderful mess that we all imagined it would be, and with the backing of one of music’s most influential artists behind them, don’t imagine this is going to be the last you’ll hear from them.
GOLD PANDA – YOU (SEAMS REMIX)
If you weren’t already sick with envy at everyone who got to see these two on the same bill during their recent tour, then fear not – gold Panda gave Seams to keys to his track ‘You’ and, lo and behold, he’s produced something utterly breathtaking. If it wasn’t for the amount of amazing sounds these two are producing, it would take more restraint than I have not to hate them for the amount of talent they’ve got.
COLD CAVE – LIFE MAGAZINE (ARTHUR BAKERS NOT GOING BACK REMIX)
Overlooked by far too many places during the end of year lists in 2009, they’re due to release a remix-heavy single in the next few weeks. They;ve already destroyed the myth that industrial music has to be depressing or downbeat, this remix could be described as aggressive or in your face. Either way, it’s amazing.
