I’m eagerly awaiting a full-length Chateau Marmont album in the near future especially after the killer Solar Apex EP released last year.
To refresh your memory, Chateau Marmont did a stellar remix of Midnight Juggernauts which you can listen to here and this next track is off of the Solar Apex EP which is good material to sink your teef (back soon! we hope…) into as you wait for what lie ahead….
OCD Automatic gets obsessive compulsive with our friend Whitney. If you’ve been around for a minute, you’ve probably listened to his awesome mixtape via Bigstereo. If you haven’t, check it ASAP as it’s so dope (tracklist in the lyrics field, THANK YOU, finally someone else who knows what’s up). It has a really good lead in and out so even if you’re 19 drinks in, you really can’t go wrong. Play it at the Beverly Hills High prom.

So the Filthy Dukes full length just arrived over here at the tuftsmania batcave. It makes me want to do pushups.
It’s called “Nonsense in the Dark” and it’s truly, honestly no-frills, no-nonsense electronic pop music. Filthy Dukes pulled all the right influences out of their memory banks and put together a collection of really catchy music. vibrating synths, screaming electric strings, they even emulate a bit of the ’soulwax’ noise. (you know what I’m talking about… that SSCCCCRReeeeeEEEEEeeee synth that sounds so bad but feels so right)
I like accessible music.
Fuck your abstract bullshit.
My new EFF (Electronic Friends Forever), Dorian and a band he’s in, The Teenagers, just took advantage of those stems Phoenix posted for 1901 and gave it the GarageBand treatment. God Bless Bigstereo 4 this one!
It’s pretty much a given that I will love any track The Teenagers sends out to its e-audience. If you haven’t checked out their tracks, you must, and you will.
I love parisian lyrics (when they’re in english) because they are brutally and perhaps unknowingly honest. Somewhere in the translation of french to english, something happens that strips the words of all ulterior meanings and kinda slice you right across the throat. That semi-gay-retard sounding (totally cool) parisian accent just adds to the honesty of the words.
Those of you who know me know that I NEVER listen to lyrics, but this is where I make my exception. That’s gotta be saying something.
The fact that the track itself is awesome is almost secondary this time.
The Teenagers are definitely veterans here. In case you were born yesterday, here’s a live mix they did in ‘06 for Pharrell of the FLUOKIDS on his radio show, “miam les fruits” with radio campus. It is tops.
