KiD COLA is back, this time a remix of the Loose Cannons exciting new live project, Lego Johnson. Donning top hats and tails for their riotous live shows, Lego Johnson are gaining rapid notoriety for their brand of electronics infused rock and roll.
KiD COLA continues with his progressive ideals, as we find this remix dripping in deep melodies, gothic, electro tweaks alongside that solid and gritty KiD COLA bassline we all know so well. He has, with this mix, taken another step towards creating a sound that is truly his own
Due for release on Government Records as part of a Lego Johnson single package in the coming months, you can check the KiD COLA remix now as a taster of what is to come, and don't forget to keep an eye out for Lego Johnson's live shows as well.

HEALTH. Having been supposed to have reviewed the about three times and having my list pulled at the last minute, I finally saw this group of LA debaucherous loons supporting the magnificent Deerhunter on Monday at Koko, and will see then tear The Lexington to shreds this fair eve'. They were, as predicted, amazing. Definitely my pick of the evening (Deerhunter and Crystal Antlers also playing).
So, (stolen, again) we have a great mix of the lead single from their soon to be released (7th September, i've pre-ordered mine, where's yours?) second LP.
Taking some of the synth lines and breathy vocals, Tobacco have crafted a piece that sounds something akin to what Damo Suzuki may have made of it, were he not (musically, at least) completely loopy.

No, i believe it is time for some daylight summer thievery from the marvelous 88days again, as i haven't received much worth writing about that i am allowed to recently.
First up is a remix of Gotye from Passion Pit that i rather like. It is a much more house-y piece than i would have suspected from our electro-poppers extrodinaire with soaring synths and great arrangement. More please.
p.s. also see their Miike Snow mix of Animal for another little bit of goodness.

Hi. So, yes, i've been a bit quiet for the last few weeks, what with work stuff, holidays and the like. Going to try and make up for this somewhat today with a few bits and pieces.
First of the day is a new piece from Yuksek who, oddly, I never pay a lot of attention too. What with Phoenix's Lisztomania being perhaps the best single of the year I couldn't really pass this one up.
