Dirty Beaches

Montreal's Alex Zhang Hungtai aka Dirty Beaches has been sending me in a daze recently. Eerie soundings like Colder's weirdo younger brother who only listens to B/Film's night surfing anthem "Night Running" on repeat. Dirty Beaches certain help fill void till both said artists release something new (Although Im not holding my breathe for B/Film). Night cycle cinematic loops unpinned by Alan Vega-esque ghostly do wop vocals which groove over the course of his six song enchanting Self Titled Ep. With a extensive back catalog already, include two great 7"s, two releases on my favourite label "Night People", the already mentioned S/T Ep and a full length album "Night City". I (You) have a lot of material to get obsessed over.

Buy both "True Blue" and "Golden Desert Sun" 7"s here.

Hounds Of Hate Cover Thieves Like Us

London's three piece Hounds Of Hate have the uncanny ability to make their versions of songs even better than the original song, this time a recent Thieves Like Us single. You can watch the original here.

Next Wednesday

Get you demonic dresses cleaned, a night of witchcraft and occult soundings are upon us next Wednesday in the Joinery with Brian Conniffe and Suzanne Walsh pairing up with Damien Donovan and Diarmuid MacDiarmada entow to help out. In support are Children Under Hoof and fresh from doing a tour with stooges sax player, Estel. Alchemical visuals on the night by Dolorosa Delacruz should insure this this will be a fun night.

Xui Xui Do It Again

This lucid lustmord nightmare is the most unsettling video I've seen since Harmony and Billy got together. Xui Xui clearly have the nack for a good pop promo. "House Sparrow" is taken from their least album "Dear God, I hate Myself", which is easily one of my favouite releases this year and their most accessible album to date.

So It's The Summer

Slow Down. from Scott Foley on Vimeo.

The music is from the lush "Evenings" who are simple brilliant in every usage of the word. The dialogue stuff was put in Scott Foley which is originally from Linklater's 95' effort "Before Sunrise".

Cant Handle The Power

First Can (which in fairness is pretty Fun ) now King Crimson, our boy West uses the best. But I think someone should have took him aside and said "Mister West maybe this cheesier than 300, bad Bill Viola shit is wack and not in a good way."
