And your winning song of the day is...
For this past weekend's installment of the summer Pool Party series at the Williamsburg Waterfront, Jelly teamed up with their Modular label pals for an Aussie-curated Sunday fun day. With Cut Copy headlining, and support coming via Restless People, Glasser, Memory Tapes and PUNCHES, there was no denying how massive the turn out would be. Lines formed early, kids waited patiently, and it all paid off with an afternoon jam-packed with good music, great friends, and the shaded solace of the All Saints Pub.
Next week's event brings together !!!, Lee Fields, The Strange Boys and Future Islands. After that, the 22nd of the month couples the Fool's Gold dream team of Chromeo, Kid Sister, The Suzan and Telephoned, before rounding out our favorite summer Sunday activity on August 29 with Delorean, Dominique Young Unique and some as yet to be announced "super special guests".
Here's to hoping those two pair up for a duet...am I right? Spanish dance-rock and a Tampa spitter with a flair for the dirty vernacular...match made in heaven, ha!
Check out the full gallery of pictures from this weekend's event here.
I think I had one of the best weekends ever and am pretty sure it kicked mondo butt.
Because I sure am dragging ass today...woo puns! So much to recap on out for ya beasts later, but in the meantime, you know how we do it...
Cut Copy debuted new material at Lollapalooza. They also played the Pool Party yesterday, but more on that hot time later. link
Arcade Fire score their first UK Number One with The Suburbs. Still not making me want to listen to it. Yawner. link
New Royksopp song, This Space, is a warm and fuzzed out instrumental slice of summer listening. Its yours for free...hooray.
Big tings poppin' in the East Village Radio booth tomorrow, on our weekly show, Belly of the Beast. Being that this Sunday is the Modular-curated Pool Party at the Williamsburg Waterfront, there's no better way to express our excitement for the affair, than by having a bona fide celebration of our own this Thursday, August 5, from 8-10pm.
The lineup for this Sunday's Jelly NYC soirée includes Cut Copy, Memory Tapes, Glasser and Restless People, with local trio, PUNCHES, providing the between-set spins. Greg, Darin and Alan will be in the booth to talk shop and maybe we can convince them to do a live song for us. Gotta tune in to find out.
'Tis gon' be a beast of a show, so you know the drill: Thursday, August 5 from 8-10pm...Belly of the Beast on East Village Radio. Tuners-ins are my favorite.

Got wind that this was coming out closer to 6pm today, but alas, here we have the new Cut Copy song, Where I'm Going. Big drums, Beach Boys-esque guitar riffs and harmonies float effortlessly over a simple arrangement that will undoubtedly have you smiling...not only because, OMG we have new Cut Copy material to listen to, but hell, it's a great song to boot.
How much do I love the shouted "yeah, yeah woo's!"? A LOT. And I'm pretty sure you will too. Sign up for their mailing list and get the track for freezies.
If/when more info surfaces on the song, this post will get updated. I'm just excited...
For real this time (after the fakery of yesterday). These are the free ones, beasts. You know, the lineup we've been clamoring to get word of for months. Paid events be durned; we like to be the sweatiest of all sweaty monsters at the outdoor space...for the cost of naught!

One of my most-anticipated albums of the first half of 2010 comes from The Golden Filter. Voluspa will see a release on April 26 via Brille. Having heard a small handful of demos, and subsequently, a dash of mastered tracks, it's safe to say I'm completely enamored with what can only be considered an eventual dive into discodubby delirium.
Yesterday, the New York duo gifted their fans with a completed version of their song, Hide Me, which will appear on the band's debut album. It will also serve as the first official single from the release.
In it's previous demo-form, Hide Me centered on a pulsing beat with complimentary vocals. With a number of listenings through the final version, the adjustments made to finalize the track are 100% well-received. Whispers snake in and out of loopy synths that envelop the ears. Big fan here.
The Golden Filter will play Brooklyn Bowl on Saturday, February 20. Nancy Whang, of LCD Soundsystem and The Juan MacLean, supports with a DJ set. Get your tickets here.
