Miss SS – It’s a woman…
SS – It’s not a woman, it’s a man. The band are the Delays and that’s his actual voice.
Miss SS – If that’s a man, I’ll eat my hat…
SS – Have you got a hat? Go and get your hat, I’ll get some sauce.
Miss SS – IT’S NOT A MAN!
Kano’s new one, produced by Boys Noize.
This is the original from Beats International, with Norman Cook on bass, dancing like he’s in Status Quo
Taking it down another level, the harmonica sample in ‘Just Be Good To Me’ is from Ennio Morricones soundtrack for Once Upon A Time In The West
The Whip are giving away a DL of new track Secret Weapon their site, along with a video featuring the same tune. I’ve only had a chance to listen once, but if I had to describe it, I would say it’s closer to Blackout than anything else on the debut. Which is nice…Get it here
Nika Roza Danilova is Zola Jesus, who with her band make beautiful, very dark synth music, ladened with lost love and ever present death. It’s the sort of music you have to be in the mood to listen to and god help you if you ever find yourself in that mood. Vampires party to Zola Jesus. Check out their version of Jefferson Airplanes ‘Somebody To Love’.
Anyway – along with her bandmate Nick Turco (Rory) Nika has created something a whole lot more accessable with Nika & Rory. The wonderful voice is still leading the music, rising above discordant beats and swirling synth, to take your breath away. Fantastic stuff. Along with the XX and Phantogram this sort of stuff is going to be perfect background music for, what I hope is a really hot summer.
Nika & Rory – I’m Not Going Anywhere
Nika & Rory – Do You Wanna Be
New remix from Run Riot on Soundcloud, free to download. Nice job this, staying pretty close to the original, but adding a dash of breaks goodness to the whole shebang.
Run Riot is doing a few festies over the summer. Check out where at his My (God this has got slow) Space. You can catch him at The Iron Works in Oswestry (or Wild West-ry as we call it round here) on the 19th June
