Totally Enormous Extinct Dinosaurs – Tapes & Money

 

Have to hand it to  Totally Enormous Extinct Dinosaurs (T.E.E.D) aka Orlando Higginbottom,    knows how to capture the dance floor and have it translate to radio as well.  The attention to detail is what always catches my ear with a  T.E.E.D track.

Equatuer – Haunted

 

The french duo Equatuer (Romain Nouhi & Charles Rocher) have produced a wonderful New Wave track called, “Haunted”. From the initial second this track started to play, my ears instantly started smiling — well, you know what I mean.

Virgo Four – It’s A Crime (Caribou Remix)

 

Dark and almost early Bauhaus-esque is this reworking by Caribou.  Caribou grabs Virgo Four’s “It’s a Crime” and takes it to a darker and goth like cavern of sound.

Background on Virgo Four’s Limited Box Set:  Resurrection

Resurrection is the follow up to the reissue of Virgo (Four)’s S/T album, which was released by Rush Hour in 2010. This album is a collection of unreleased tracks that were produced over a 6 year period between 1984 and 1990 in various home studios around Chicago. The tracks were selected from 100′s of 4-track tapes that had been untouched and unreleased all these years due to local record business politics and disinterest. These demo recordings have been restored and mastered for release. The CD release holds 15 tracks, while the limited edition vinyl box set contains 15 tracks, totalling a cool 30 tracks. Resurrection really shows the the rich, diverse and unique quality of Virgo Four, which leaves you wondering what impact they would have made on the (Chicago) house scene if they would have gotten released back in the day. For now we are really glad these gems have been unearthed and are proud to give Virgo Four the spotlight they so much deserve.

New: Logan Lynn – Burning Your Glory

Just received a copy of Logan Lynn‘s new full length offering called, “From Pillar to Post” (due out later this year).   Logan Lynn delivers on the promise of his hit, “Feed Me To The Wolves” by creating a rich, atmospheric and electronic collection of sounds and voice.   Several stand out tracks on the album include:

If He Hollers –   A cross breed of Depeche Mode starkness with Duran Duran production sensibilites.   Easly one of the best tracks on the album!

Bottom Your Way To The Top – Industrial sounds and dark brooding make up the body of this track.   In my mind, the video that is conjured upon listening to this track is:     A slow free fall down an elevator shaft with glimpses of   your troubled past on each floor.

Burning Your Glory – Melancholy heartache never sounded so pretty, simply breathtaking.
