Y△CHT IS NOT A CULT. (but it sure can save your soul)

Released today under the DFA label. Available in iTunes at half price for one week. Get get GET!

We are exhausted and thrilled to announce that as of today, See Mystery Lights, our new album, our beast of burden, our mystical child, has finally been released to the world.

In honor of this event, iTunes is holding a generous promotion for you, our patient fans. For one week only, starting on Tuesday, July 28th, See Mystery Lights (as well as our entire back-catalog of releases) will be available for half-price.

We feel as though the world is speeding by on steel tracks, on a scenic route for us all to enjoy while we celebrate this, and various other victories in all our lives. See Mystery Lights is as much yours as it our ours, and we couldn't have arrived here without your support and participation.

It is with this sentiment that we present See Mystery Lights to you, with great humility and aggressive pricing.

Please join us in welcoming See Mystery Lights to the world by partying on iTunes!

Look out for desperate youth // New kids in town

Math-rock shenanigans of Slint & Tortoise proportions, out now on Thrill Jockey. Not exactly new since they've been around for some years now, but they sure as hell sound refreshing.

Vincent Moon - A Skin, A Night

From the mess to the masses (a summer album)

Ok, so the ones that know me personally or those that follow me on twitter must be rolling their eyes right now: "Jeez, there he is again about those damn Frenchies". Granted, I've been flogging this album at the drop of a hat BECAUSE IT IS THAT GOOD. Not excellent. Not seminal. (+10 pseudo music lingo there) Not best album of 2009 (at least not yet), but it sure is good enough to spend the next couple of months with.

I blame it on the promise of a memorable summer.

Rest assured, I still have a job. Just need to say Fuck Work and go on hols. Which I actually can't. Yes, its a catch 22 situation or, should I say, another one.

Anyhoo, on with the beats. Not quite sure how or why did I came across Cubic Zirconia a couple of weeks back but truth be told, I'm sure glad I did. These sleazy and raunchy beats could well be the soundtrack to a weekend long beach parties where anything can happen! Over and over again, which is always big fun eh? Be sure to check our their label for a huge (like in 8) amount of interesting remixes, specially the bouncy and trippy one by Dekker & Johan.
