Bloated and In Need of Sleep

Hope everyone in the US had a great long holiday weekend. I drank - a lot - and am dreading tomorrows return to work. Beautiful weekend here in the Philly area though - official start to summer indeed.

So a quick bit for the web...


Wolfmother - Woman

Here is the single version of the song (remix below in the last post). Very guitar heavy, rockin jam. These guys are from Australia and seem to be similar in their revialist desires to fellow Aussies Jet. While not nearly as sing-a-long-catchy as Jet they put down some solid tunes on their self-titled debut. This single is actually a bit different than the album version - much better i think. It's tempo is a bit reduced in comparison.

Just Like We (Breakdown) (DFA Remix)

This mix is the B-side to Over & Over. Hot Chip is on the DFA label which is enough for me to pick up their stuff. These London boys have a kind of Postal Service meets the Beta Band vibe, a nice indie dance act. The original of this track can be found on their set: The Warning which is out in most of the world now and drops June 13 in the US. This mix amps up the dance quotient, as the DFA are wont to do with epic synth stabs and a quicker beat than the original but you don't lose that languid meloncolic feel in the vocal - if you like Tracy Thorn's delivery style in Everything but the Girl then you'll dig all 8 and a half minutes of this mix.

K, thats all. Hope you enjoy, and now back to the grind.
