NEW: Caribou – Odessa

Vocally this reminds me of Erlend Øye, and musically it reminds me of “The Whitest Boy Alive” remixes which feature Erlend Øye on vocals.  That’s a compliment by the way, and I love the new direction Dan Snaith has taken with his latest offering.  “Swim” is due out April 19th.

Caribou – Odessa

“I got excited by the idea of making dance music that’s liquid in the way it flows back and forth, the sounds slosh around in pitch, timbre, pan…dance music that sounds like it’s made out of water rather than made out of metallic stuff like most dance music does,” Snaith says

Sounds great to me!

Chew Lips – Slick


Enjoying the melancholy of this electronic pop track from Chew Lips.   Must admit this fits nicely between my Hot Chip and Little Dragon tunes on my ipod.   They are set to release a full lenght this coming January.


Chew Lips are three kids from London (Tigs, Will and James).
They play lo-fi tech tunes that are infectious and have been together since about March 2008

NEW: Groove Armada (featuring SaintSaviour) – I Wont Kneel


Groove Aramada are set to release a new full length, “Black Light”, from which this track is taken from.  It features the lovely and soulful voice of SaintSaviour.  This track has that 80’s Eurythmics  cool factor messed with rocking beats and a delicious  bass synth.

Skye – What’s Wrong With Me [Jim Noir remix]


Skye Edwards was the former lead singer for Morcheeba, who released a solo effort in 2006 called, “Mind How You Go”.   Funny enough Jim Noir gave this remix the Morcheeba trip hop treatment to full effect, laid back, smooth and sultry with a dash of 60’s psychedelic.
