A storm is coming

So get your experimental folk/indie crash helmets. Here is hoping that Veckatimest, Grizzly Bear's upcoming album on the 26th, doesn't follow the lead of Animal Collective. That being: the release of an overly catchy and enjoyable song as the first single out of a not so easy to listen album. Misleading, to say the least.

UPDATE: Oh snap... Warp recs pulled the vid down. Fixed! Plus added lyrics.

Grizzly Bear - Two Weeks

Save up all the days
A routine malaise
Just like yesterday
I told you I would stay
Would you always?
Maybe sometimes?
Make it easy?
Take your time

Think of all the ways
Momentary phase
Just like yesterday
I told you I would stay

Every time you try
Quarter half a mile
Just like yesterday
I told you I would stay
Would you always?
Maybe sometimes?
Make it easy?
Take your time

Shuffle Audiovisual Experience

Lisbon, the city with seven hills and high caloric delicious pastry, cries for an alternative. Every night seems to be more of the same. Visiting the same places, seeing the same faces while doing the same silly things. Over and over. Valise d'Images' mission is simple: creating a much needed alternative to the norm that plagues the Lisbon's nightlife. With an ever growing line-up of artists from all across the board: illustrators, performers, live acts, workshops, visual installations, experimental DJs & VJs. The Shuffle Audiovisual Experience is starting to set itself as that much needed alternative, so break free from that ghastly rut and come see for yourself. More than a request or a suggestion, this is a bloody call to arms!

Newsletters are the best. They keep popping up once in a while, much like a concerned mother checking up on her emo/goth youngsters to see if they are alive, plus most of the time they bring free stuff. Much like mums and chocolate chip cookies!

Labrador have been particularly busy promoting both "old-timers" like The Mary Onettes, The Legends & The Radio Dept or newcomers like Little Big Adventure aka Magnus Sätterström. This is a curious one that resonates of Owen Ashworth aka Casiotone For the Painfully Alone. Self made one man band, Magnus cashed in his saving to buy a Casio keyboard, which seems like a Swedish thing to do. Ever since he has been tinkering with it and managing an oh so familiar and lovely droning soft electronica about youth, school, love, hate and about doing all of the above while drunk. Again, another seemingly adequate and appropriate Swedish (or otherwise) rite of passage. If the dreamy sounds and provoking lyrics weren't enough to turn me into a groupie, the shameless appropriating of a classic pc game from the 90's which I loved and adore, sure did the trick. Yes, I am a whore for both gaming and droning electronica and for once have met in a veritable music geek heaven.

easteregg A whole freaking bunch of mp3s!

Maison Kitsuné, bless their tiny hipster Jean Paul Gautier influenced hearts, are promoting autoKratz's new single, Always More, for their upcoming album ANIMAL along with a remix of Swastika Eyes. Yes, it's the song from Primal Scream's XTRMNTR featuring Jagz Kooner. Great isn't? Wrong. Kitsuné decided to go all Nazi (pun REALLY intended) and is making the remix available here, but only if you give your name and email. No email? No tune. GTFO! Luckly, some sensible person already uploaded it into youtube. There is not stopping the interwebs, bitches! Except perhaps... humm... Piratebay. And Napster. Anyhoo, the new single from autoKratz is very meh, but the remix is quite lovely.

Maps // Let go of the fear

James Chapman aka Maps with a new single out today, Let go of the fear, via Mute Records! Crank up that volume and don’t forget to check out his Emospace account for an additional remix of the above mentioned single and extra cookie points.

And yes, I (might) be back to Blogger although to be honest Tumblr is looking far more user friendly. And less demanding as well.
