And the blogosphere is still going nuts over this one…
Phoenix- 1901 (Immuzikation Remix)
I’m not sure if Peaches changed or if what we now call electro changed but Peaches started out as a crazy-ass, sleazy, gender-bending electro pioneer who ended up being refined into a more processed and less abrasive version or herself. The whole vibe got slightly more dumbed down with each release.
That said, there is a killer new Peaches song out there and I hear that it was produced by Simian Mobile Disco. Those dudes are killer so it doesn’t surprise me the song is so good, I hope the rest of her album sounds this good even if it is much more polished than the old school girl I fell in love with back in y2k.
Also, Peaches is hitting the road. Catch her if you can…. I promise you will never forget it. Ever.
2009:…drops new single called Trepanation Party which takes a slightly different approach than their previous work. Includes synth (which doesn’t sound very good), a more dramatic sound and a pretty great vocal. Vocals were always my favorite part of this band so the song works me… just don’t like the keyboard sound.
Mothers Sisters Daughters & Wives was one of my very favorite songs in 2006. The song is just as great today… still the best thing they’ve ever done.
One Day As A Lion is the new project consisting of Rage Against the Machine frontman Zack de la Rocha and former Mars Volta drummer Jon Theodore. De La Rocha provides vocals and keyboards while Theodore mans the drums.
The band is signed to Anti- and have a forthcoming 5 song EP.
So far we’re feeling the best song is Last Letter, the single is Wild International. Grab them now. Be cooler than everyone else.
