Simian Mobile Disco – New Single

Simian Mobile Disco had one of 2007’s most underated albums with Attack Decay Sustain Release. It still sounds as good today as it did back then.

August 17th will see the release of the band’s second studio album, Temporary Pleasure. The first single has just been released and I am s00o not feeling it.

Check it out:

      Simian Mobile Disco - Audacity of Huge

Compare that to one of the better songs from ADSR:

      Simian Mobile Disco - It's The Beat

Or one of the newer songs produced by one of the guys:

      Peaches - More

And just for fun let’s check out a remix they did of a Klaxons song and a remix The Teenagers did of It’s the Beat.

      Klaxons - Magick (SMD Remix)

      Simian Mobile Disco - It's The Beat (Teenagers Remix)

Fingers crossed the rest of the album is better than that single.

    Totally disagree.. Don’t get me wrong Attack Decay Sustain Release is a fine record.. but Audacity of huge seems like the next natural step.. the choice of Chris keating from Yeasayer (one of the finest bands right now) in this song is freakin’ awesome!! looking forward for the full record

    I, too, am a HUGGGGEE fan of this song…the first two new songs made me a little iffy about the upcoming release, but this totally pumps me up

    I better take another bunch of listens to this, I’m surprised y’all are digging it.

    I gave this thing some more spins today, man I just don’t get it. You know what it reminds me of? Remember when The Chem Bros dropped Galvanize and we all had to pretend that is was good because relative to the rest of the album it was the only we could grab onto? This is like that….

    It sounds like a leftover Crystal Method track that makes a greatest hits comp but was never released until now.

    Really not feeling this and I like the Yeasayer stuff alright (one of my favorite songs from the Dark Was the Night comp was theirs).
