Housse De Racket

House De Racket are Pierre and Victor, who are into tennis and have an obsession with ‘being black’ (they’ve been trying to be black for some time). Their sophmore album ‘Alesia’ is due for release on the mighty Kitsune, sometime in the summer and was produced by none other than Philipe Zdar (Cassius, Phoenix, The Rapture), who brings his dreamy synth pop touch to tunes like ‘Chateau, which you may have heard featured on Kitsune Maison 10.

Kitsune are promising ‘eleven futuristic pop songs’ and who am I to doubt them. Check out the video teaser for ‘Alesia’ and roll on the summer.

There’s a sense of spring in the air right now. It may not last long, probably snow next week, but for now I’m going to enjoy the feeling of rejuvenation and post some music. Why not?

My French isn’t up to much, so I really don’t know what Arnaud Fleurent Didier is talking about during ‘France Culture’. There’s something about not speaking English, or German and left is mentioned and I hear life in there. I suspect it’s an ode to French culture, or being French. If you could send me a translation, that would be wonderful. It doesn’t really matter to me what’s being said, because it sounds brilliant. You can get the idea and to be honest I could listen to someone talking French all day without having a clue what they were talking about.

France Culture was released in 2009 and now Para One has produced a brilliant remix. This stripped down affair is solely about the mood. If they make a video for it, it will feature blue skies, fluffy clouds and someone sitting on a train, looking melancholy, while through the window France flashes by.

Featured Tommie Sunshine ‘Limit of your Mind’ just the other day and now here’s a smart new club mix from Tocadisco, which I’m loving the ass off at the moment.

Pains of Being Pure at Heart album, Belong, produced by Flood, is out 29th March. The title track is a lot meatier than any of their previous stuff and I like that. It’s got a real Smashing Pumpkins vibe, especially in the distorted guitar.

{Trailer} Hanna

New film from Joe Wright (Pride and Prejudice, Atonement), starring Eric Bana and Cate ‘Looks a bit like Miss SS’ Blanchett. Hanna tells the Nikita-esque story of a 14 year old assassin, as she kills people with Jason Bourne like panache. I’m not sure that was the pitch, but that’s what the trailer hints at.

Anyway, the soundtrack contains some new Chemical Brothers, which is the cue for Tron sountrack scale excitment, in these parts and the real reason for this post. Lets just hope Hanna is better than Tron, which, apart from the soundtrack was shit.
