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.
Youth Lagoon, a project from Boise bedroom popster Trevor Powers, understands the emotional heft that comes with a slow-burning crescendo. Take “July,” which just received a surprisingly bloody video treatment. It’s a reverb-drenched torch song that’s perfect for a post-breakup drive through the mountains or napping in a pile of leaves. And of course, his aptly-named debut, The Year Of Hibernation, is out now via Fat Possum.
