Norwegian Body Snatch-uhs

No posts for . . . seven months or so. Here's 2x, thanks for waiting.

Erlend Øye is bringin' heat like a Norweigian camping støve. This is from the new Kings of Convenience LP "Declaration of Dependence", previously titled "Musiik av en Kramfors".

Kings of Convenience - Mrs. Cold

Obviously I'm late like Kourtney Kardashian on a Dodos blog post but here it is anyway.

S.E.T.I.

Incoming post - sorry for the lag, this song is rad though. Hopefully it inspires more posting . . . ahem. Yeah Yeah Yeah's covers ftw!

#$@%!

If your iTunes just "genuised" 30 Ben Gibbard songs in a row, this is the antidote. These guys finally released on Matador and - other than failing to book venues based on obscenity considerations - I'd say their future looks bright.

Boss DD-3

The Constantines have been killing it since 2000, definitely writing epic, explosive detonations of guitar-fueled fire. Now they're on Toronto's Arts + Crafts with Broken Social Scene and Feist. Listening to this makes me understand why I love music . . . (also rootbeer and hockey).

Guess who's back?

There are really two correct answers to that question. I'm back posting on the blog, and Cam is back rappin' over the type of beats he sounds best on. Oh, and he's riding Subarus now too.

stop//. start<--

This reminds me of creeping the streets of a vertical metropolis in a coat and hat while the wind howls icy nothings between my headphone and ear. That probably has less to do with Thieves Like Us and more to do with the fact that it's ass-cold in NY. Anyway, the Joy Division/New Order mantle is apparently alive and well.

Gnarly Bro!

MGMT gets impregnated by The Cars, ahem. Empire Of The Sun and Cut Copy are both from Australia . . . surprise. Did they just re-run Fast Times At Ridgemont High down there 5 times a day from 1990-2004 or what?

Empire Of The Sun - Half Mast

Only A Little

Now that Bloc Party's back in SoHo trying to stay drunk, Does It Offend You, Yeah? is out on a U.S. tour of their own with a stop at the Bowery tomorrow night. These dudes make The Rapture look like grown bitches. Touch with live drums? You ain't down.

Intimacy, Kele Okereke and Co.'s new LP, dropped on the internet last Thursday (available here) to surprisingly little fanfare save the wind-chime orchestra featured in "Signs". Here's a couple cuts of the new. Running remix count: 956.

Inna Da Club

Thieves Like Us are back with a new EP called Your Heart Feels, which came out on August 15th.  The first single, appropriately titled ´Your Heart Feels´ is already making the rounds.  WARNING - if you listen to this song it will be stuck in your head for the next 48 hours-guaranteed.  ¨see you in the club, see you in the crowd...¨


BONUS - Since I wont be posting for a while, as Im about to head along the Venezuelan coastline for a few weeks, I had to throw this up.  Thanks to FluoKids for the link.  Jay-Z has apparently been playing a lot of Guitar Hero.
