Is Tropical – Lies

Is Tropical are back with their third single off debut album ‘Native To’. Available to buy through Kitsune/Co Op on 31st October ‘Lies’  is a straight out indy disco stomper, with the band even sneaking in a cheeky slowed down slice of Alice Deejay ‘Better Off Alone’ (which drove me to near insanity, trying to remember  what the fuck it was. Thanks to Breezy, for answering the phone and putting me out of my misery).

The Shoe is the debut short from French ‘cultural provocateur’, Andre Saraiva. The soundtrack was selected by Gildas, from Kitsune, and features Is Tropical, The Virgins, Vandaveer and Heartsrevolution, which is a happy coincidence (see above). You can hear an extract of ‘Brillantine’ from Heartsrevolution debut album ‘Ride Or Die’ in the clip below

Too Many Videos?

Sorry, about the mass of videos recently, but there’s a lot of good videos around at the moment.

Justice – Civilization

…I have no clue what this video is about. I do know that it’s directed by Edouard Salier and that the Civlization EP will be released on June 6th and will feature remixes from Mr Oizo and The Fucking Champs

Is Tropical – The Greeks

The Megaforce video for Is Tropical is ace and it’s the video Megaforce have wanted to make since ‘the age of 6’. It’s certainly something I’ve never seen before. Good job, Megaforce!

The launch parties for the album ‘Native to’ are :

Point Ephémère, Paris on 8th June – buy your tickets here

XOYO, London with Yuksek, Jupiter and Icona Pop on 17th June – buy your tickets here
