Who Made Who – Keep Me In My Plane

who_made_who

Who Made Who reminds me, on this particular track, of a more disco infused Junior Boys track with smooth and warm vocals over a disco-esque rhythm section.

Who Made Who – Keep Me In My Plane

BTW: Beautifully shot video for this track, love the stoic look through out:

Bio from Facebook:

WhoMadeWho may lack a question mark after their name but their music will certainly have you asking after them. Why do they dress up in skeleton suits when they play live? Why does a band supposedly known for disco punk start their second album with an outbreak of omnious sounding woodwind? And why do they fill their most breezy pop moments with teutonic synths? The Danish trio are difficult to pin down but their music sounds as effortless as it is stylistically and sonically adventurous. WhoMadeWho are on a mission to eschew convention.

Holy Ghost! – I Will Come Back

holyghost

Hot new 12″ from Holy Ghost!.   Holy Ghost! are currently in studio working on their first full length.   They will be releasing a new video for, “I Will Come Back”.   This particular tracks lies somewhere between Junior Boys mid tempo electronics beats mixed with disco inspired tracks of   Morgan Geist and a touch of Michael McDonald on the chorus — I know sounds weird, but it works.

Holy Ghost! – I Will Come Back

Bio:

Holy Ghost! consists of two individuals, Nicholas Millhiser and Alexander Frankel. Both grew up a few blocks from each other in New York City and began collaborating on music at an early age. their first foray into the music world came in the shape of their first band, Automato, while attending high school. Shortly after signing to Capitol Records in 2000, they teamed up with DFA founders Tim Goldsworthy and James Murphy to handle production duties on Automato’s debut. After recording with Tim and James, Alex and Nick began lending their skills to various DFA productions, including remixes and as touring and recording members of The Juan Maclean. All the while, Nick and Alex began working towards their own record and finally, Holy Ghost! is a product of their obsessions with analog synthesizers, rare disco, and ancient production techniques. Worth to hold on to!Alex and Nick gave up some valuable ‘sleep’ time whilst on a flying visit to London and talked us through some of their favourite cuts — disco or otherwise!

Lyrics:

Can we slow it down, just for a moment see
Some things never get old
Let us Rearrange, we go perfectly
At least that’s what I’ve been told

And your mother won’t leave you alone
And your father won’t leave you alone
In a minute things can change, at least until you get home

It’s the middle of the night
That’s my favorite part
Keeps me under the gun

There’s a part of me
That keeps coming through
And I will come back
To you …

What a change of plans
I can’t wait to see
What you come up with next

Point somewhere on the map
It’s ok to leave
You can always come back

And your mother won’t leave you alone
And your father won’t leave you alone
So you book yourself a room, where a video plays on a loop

It’s the middle of the night, the night
That’s my favorite part
Keeps me under the gun
There’s a part of me
That keeps coming through
And I will come back (I will come back)
To you….
