klaxons have finally returned with a new single called ‘flashover’. the wait has been long for anything from these guys, this is mainly because early last year (2009) it was reported that the band had been told to re-record parts of their second album, after it was rejected by their record label. their record label polydor deemed the record “too experimental” for release (i would be keen as to give these tracks a listen), so since november 2009 the band has once again been recording their second album.

the song reminds me a lot of a faster more grungier ‘four horsemen of 2012’ a song off their first album, myths of the near future. no official word yet, but we can expect this to be included on their second album, which has been in the works for many years now. the new album is set for a release later in the year and has a provisional title of surfing the void.

formerly known as cherry, new york’s rock-meets-electronica duo ratatat features multi-instrumentalist/programmer evan mast and guitarist mike stroud.

ratatat are back with their sixth studio album since 2004, lp4. on this album, ratatat does not deviate much from the classic sound of their previous works. this album is good but nothing (in my opinion) compared to their earlier work in albums classics, 9 beats and their self tilted album ratatat.

overall, if you liked what you heard on lp3 and found yourself wanting more, then you should be immensely satisfied with this album.

tracklist:
01. bilar
02. drugs
03. neckbrace
04. we can’t be stopped
05. bob gandhi
06. mandy
07. mahalo
08. party with children
09. sunblocks
10. bare feast
11. grape juice city
12. alps

ratatat – lp4 – sorry guys i just got an email from xl recordings asking if this link could be taken down. here is a link to their first single ‘party with children’ tho:
ratatat – party with children

tame impala are a three piece psychedelic rock band from perth, western australia. their musical sound draws from a wide range of influences (most notably cream) and they like to see themselves as “a steady flowing psychedelic groove rock band that emphasizes dream-like melody.” in mid 2008 they signed to modular recordings.

to be honest i haven’t had a huge amount of time to listen to this album yet but if their self-tilted ep is anything to go by this album should be a gem.

tracklist:
01. it’s not meant to be
02. desire be desire go
03. alter ego
04. lucidity
05. make up your mind
06. solitude is bliss
07. jeremy’s storm
08. expectations
09. bold arrow of time
10. runway houses city clouds
11. i don’t really mind

tame impala – innerspeaker

neon indian released a new track through mountain dew’s green label sound. the track was co–produced by chris taylor of grizzly bear. taylor really has a knack for getting the best traits out of his artists. a true sign of a good producer.

they previously stated that in march, they were going to release a new neon indian song and here it is! this is definitely a fun poppy, hazey track. it probably could have fit on psychic chasms. a decent one off single for neon indian, but it does leave me wanting a little more.

neon indian – sleep paralysist

mgmt have returned with their follow up album congratulations. the first single to be released is ‘flash delirium’ followed closely by the second single, the title track ‘congratulations’.

‘flash delirium’ starts off slow and slowly picks up until it explodes. the song has thrown off a lot of their previous fans simply because it’s just not what they were expecting. pfffffff, get over it. the band had to change, they couldn’t make a second album exactly the same as oracular spectacular. they seem to have found a way to expand themselves, while maintaining the best parts of their previous efforts.

mgmt – flash delirium

mgmt – congratulations – sorry track was leaked and no longer available

with cold war kids debut album robbers & cowards creating such a huge uproar and claiming to have saved indie music their follow up sophomore album loyalty to loyalty was a blow out and didnt reach anywhere near the success.

a lot of fans lost hope and carried on with their own little lives.

realizing this the “kids” decided to improve things somewhat, so theres a new ep set to be released in january 2010 entitled behave yourself which will hopefully be the rebirth of the cold war kids. to check things out heres a little sneak with one of the tracks off the ep ‘audience of one’.

between you and me i dont know if im completely sold, i mean its a lot better than loyalty to loyalty….. buttttttttt yea duno.

cold war kids – audience of one

at last, another vampire weekend song which isnt some kind of bootleg live recording. below is the second single off their up and coming album contra as well as the music video to go along with it.

the song is a fast paced ball of energy with speedy guitar riffs and a pounding drum in the background. this song will get you off your seat.

the video, like the song is very fast with the band getting pulled backwards and forwards on a simple pulley system down a back alley. vampire weekend always finds something that entertains all audiences! it is simple but effective.

i now see where the single album cover has come from.

vampire weekend – cousins

animal collective have recently released a new 10″ for ‘brother sport’. the 10″ features two tracks, brother sport and bleeding (live from big sur). the live version of bleeding is extended to almost 10 minutes and breaks down into weird sounds and echoing layered vocals from avery and panda bear.

tracklist:
01. brother sport
02. bleeding (live from big sur)

animal collective – brother sport ep

also heres the new video for one of my favourite tracks off their latest album merriweather post pavilion, ‘in the flowers’. this video is very trippy with includes a lot of dancers with horrible makeup and obviously, flowers.

in my opinion its not the best video that animal collective have released but is amazing in its own right (if you want a super sweet animal collective music video check out peacebone).

the video was directed by abby portner.

watch it below:

hot chip – take it in

November 17, 2009

hot chip have a new album on the way entitled one life stand. the album is set to be released on february 8th next year.

the start of next year is looking amazing with releases by spoon, vampire weekend, yeasayer and now hot chip.

anyway the first single off the album is ‘take it in’, this song is good… but i was hoping for more, hot chip have released some near perfect material over the years with songs that get better with age, i only hope this one does the same. at the moment this song is good but not great.

what am i saying, im wrapped that hot chip have released anything at all.

have a listen and make up your own mind.

hot chip – take it in
