Peaches / Simian Mobile Disco

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.

      Peaches - More

      Peaches - Fuck the Pain Away

      Peaches - Shake Yer Dix

Also, Peaches is hitting the road. Catch her if you can…. I promise you will never forget it. Ever.

Voxtrot- Trepanation Party (New Single)

The Voxtrot story thus far: released a couple of really promising EPs early on (2005/06), recorded and released a very un-promising full length via Beggarsgroup (2007)…

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.

      Voxtrot - Mothers

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.

Japandroids – Young Hearts Spark Fire

We used to dream, now we worry about dying.
I don’t want to worry about dying, I just want to worry about those sunshine girls.

One Day As A Lion – New music from Zack de la Rocha!

“It’s better to live one day as a lion, than a thousand years as a lamb.” – George Rodriguez, 1970

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.
