YACHT has returned in the midst of touring to release their new video directed by Brandon Vedder for the title track off their new album, Shangri-La. The video is a document of a perfect day in YACHT's newly-adopted hometown of Los Angeles, California. From sunrise to sunset, the video follows our movements throughout the sprawling strangeness of the Southland, from ice-cream parlors to beach bonfires.
Well, this is rad. Disco-slayers Scissor Sisters have refitted School Of Seven Bells’ newest dream “Lafaye” with tick tock beats and android synths and then rammed the whole thing through a bedazzled sausage grinder. What curls out the other end is an oily dance casing filled with bits of snaps, slinky echoes and buzzy, broken samples, which eventually fade into the familiar enchantress vocals of the original. Would-be butchers pay attention: this is how a remix is done. Find more goodies with a pre-order on iTunes, while we ponder how we can turn “dance sausage” into a real thing.
Santigold’s 2012 take over has officially begun! Following a pair of hometown shows at Music Hall of Williamsburg that sold out in five minutes, she is releasing “Big Mouth,” from her forthcoming album Master of My Make Believe, due out this spring on Downtown Records/ Atlantic Records.
