I've been talking about it for ages and now it happened: Hadouken's Music For An Accelerated Culture dropped. Today. This fact is even more awesome than the record itself.. no wait, the record is more awesome, pfshh. Surprisingly, there aren't many known songs taken from the previously released Not Here To Please You mix tape. It happens often that bands release 6 -7 song EPs and then put almost every song onto the album among two or three new songs and you ask yourself: why buy the album if you already own most of it? That's not the point here with Hadouken!, there's That Boy That Girl, Get Smashed Gate Crash and Liquid Lives, but the other 8 songs are brand new. I'm astonished find a good amount of singing on Music For An Accelerated Culture and less rap. Also more quiet or 'softer' somgs like What She Did and Driving to Nowhere give the impression of a multifaceted record. All in all, it was so worth the longwait. Go get it from HMV or amazon.
MP3: Hadouken! - Driving Nowhere
MP3: Hadouken! - Spend Your Life
Alright, some time ago I mentioned the Ed Rec Vol. 3 compilation is coming towards us on May, 26th, via Ed Banger Records obviously. As already set, it's track list is flawless: new Justice remix, two Oizo songs, Krazy Baldhead, Uffie, Feadz, Mehdi, DSL and so on. If you wanna impress your friends, parents, teachers or oblivious DJs, go buy it when it comes out and carry it around all the time. I already have two tracks for your listening pleasures, but do buy it in three weeks, because next to the Kitsuné compilations(and The Strokes of course), it's the coolest thing ever!
I can't find a link now, but you should be able to pre-order it on arcade mode in a week or so. I'll keep you updated. Until then:
MP3: Mr. Oizo - Minuteman's Pulse
MP3: Krazy Baldhead - No Cow, No Pow
Alright, something else you can get from arcade mode: the Diskoding mini album from Siriusmo, which was released last month via Boys Noize records. Siriusmo makes fine electro/house/dance and the mini album features an excellent Boys Noize edit, to which you can listen below. Get Diskoding @ arcade mode.
MP3: Siriusmo - Mein Menu Fahrrad (Boys Noize Edit)
I'm getting very hungry by the minute, so the next few songs I'm just gonna throw in a bunch: New CSS single Rat Is Dead is decent, a little more rock than I'd have expected, but alright. The single is taken from the forthcoming Donkey, which will be available on June, 22nd via Subpop. Hot Lava and Sante Les Amis are both very promising new indie/indie rock bands. Please go check out their websites for releases, shows, etc. And last, IDC's Bolshy Beats is simply a very good electronica/dance song and will be out as a single sometime in June.
MP3: CSS - Rat Is Dead (Rage)
MP3: Hot Lava - Apple Option Fire
MP3: Sante Les Amis - Mécanico ()
MP3: IDC - Bolshy Beats
I guess, that's it for today.
Have a nice Monday!
