Thieves Like Us - Desire

Like all their vids, this one for Desire is a cut up of an 80's classic film. In this case it's Jean-Jacques Beineix's Diva.
The song which I can't get out of my wee head, is from their new album which is out Nov 07/08 and by all a counts, should be rightous. But in the mean time here's a hearthy song from their last EP and a sweet 7 minuter for good measure .

Thieves Like Us - Your Heart Feels.mp3.
Thieves Like Us - An Easy Tonight.mp3
Also there is a link to another Thieves Like Us Video , the song named after and vid clip is of another Jean-Jacques Beineix film, this time Moon In The Gutter.

"How _____ Got His/Her Groove Back" Mixtape

An oldie but a goodie.
01 Baby Blue - The Warlocks
Named after the origInal name of The Grateful Dead.

was lame. A year later I picked up their record in the
discount bin, glad I did.

04 Thinking of a Dream I Had - The Walkmen
To me The Walkmen sound like what Phython Lee
Jackson would sound like if they were from 2004.

14 Eisbar - Grauzone

So good I made a t shirt of the cover of the single.

Keyboard Demo of the Week No. 01

The first in a series of cheesey automatic keyboard demos, a little beaut from 88' the sampling Yamaha VSS 200 with "Pascals Country Sounds" sample. The tune itself like most keyboard demos goes through the spectum of sounds the machine has the offer, like YMO doing a medley of their "Greatest Hits" in 2 minutes.

New Australian Noise: Fabulous Diamonds, Naked On The Vague, HTRK, Lakes And Inverted Crux and Pissypaw.

Some great Australian band have come under my radar recently, Fabulous Diamonds debut LP is top class trance rock which conjours up campfire chants over tom tom banging that keeps you locked tight in it's power thoughout it's brief but brillant 7 song debut.

fabulous diamonds live at death by audio (brooklyn) from acid marshmallow on Vimeo.
Fabulous Diamonds - LP6 MP3

Another two piece but with more DNA in their blood than Fabulous Diamonds.
Naked On The Vague - All Aboard MP3

Another obsession from dark side of the bush. You can catch them supporting the over overrated Shellac at The Button Factory, Dublin on the 28th of October.

HTRK - Panties MP3
For more HTRK go Here and Here.

Lakes And Inverted Crux - Pentangled Deck MP3
