Simian Mobile Disco has just produced Beth Ditto’s self titled EP, which was released today on Beatport. The EP sports four tracks of disco house music with the seductive voice of one Beth Ditto of Gossip fame.
Off of SMD’s new album, “Temporary Pleasure” which is due out August 17th, comes this collaboration with Jamie Lidell. Tracks takes a couple of listens before is starts to grow on you, but those tend to be the best tracks. Really love the lead synth line over the chorus, that’s something special as well as the Soft Cell – Sex Dwarf esque squeals.
Just got this in my inbox (thanksJonnie Wilkes & James Savage)
Oh… this is so good, reminds me of the old school house tunes I use to hear in the backyard parties that were thrown by “party crews”, which also seemed to have the worst kind of beer ever, but some great tunes blasting through out the night.
As it is, I’m really looking forward to SMD’s new album, “Temporary Pleasure” which is due out August 17th. And if you look at the track list, looks to be a solid line up.
01. Cream Dream (feat. Gruff Rhys) [Super Furry Animals / Neon Neon]
02. Simian Mobile Disco – Audacity of Huge (feat. Chris Keating) [Yeasayer lead singer]
03. 10000 Horses Can’t Be Wrong
04. Cruel Intentions (feat. Beth Ditto) [Gossip lead singer]
05. Off The Map (feat. Jamie Lidell) [Super Collider lead singer]
07. Bad Blood (feat. Alexis Taylor) [Hot Chip lead singer]

10. Pinball (feat. Telepathe)
Presale for Album:
My favorite track from their latest offering, “Attack Decay Sustain Release”
Has a nice dance club vibe to it, something akin to GusGus. None the less, it’s a great melodic track with a great a hook.
