Introducing: Oliver (U-Tern and Oligee)

You may separately know the names Vaughn “U-Tern” Oliver and Oliver “Oligee” Goldstein, but now you can associate them with one duo-riffic title, simply known as Oliver. Minimalism in names at its finest, and musicality at it's even finer-est.




Follow 'em on twitter @weareoliver, grab their original tracks, All Night (below) and Walk WIth Me (here), or their remix of Don Diablo and Dragonette's Animale.


Each of those options come highly Beaston approved!

Don Diablo (featuring Dragonette) - Animale (new single, video and remix!)

Honest to goshness, Don Diablo was a big player in Beastonia about two solid years ago...and maybe it was me just getting my blog legs underneath me and getting excited that someone actually wanted to debut material with me...in which case he kind of fell off my radar, cause well, shit started sounding generic. But he gots the remedy to that now, because he wisely teamed up with hot Canadian trio, Dragonette, for his new single, Animale, and all prior missteps be never spoken of again, cause this is super hot. So let's pretend this is the first we've ever heard of the DJ/producer, and "OMG y'all, what an amazing debut!" Jokes aside, here we go...




For the line "stamp your hind legs, get behind me..." alone, this song is certifiably Beaston-approved. Also, the entire arrangement and lyrical content is pure pop bonkers and enjoyable in the same breath.


Video for the song is out now, it makes no sense, but it gives you another chance to listen to the tune. I think it's something to do with ravecave kids making out and tripping out on orange slices, kind of like a bad peewee soccer game at halftime, yeah? Whatever. Datsik's remix is yours to gobble up wit yo animal fangs too.


If you're in the Netherlands, buy the single officially on iTunes.

The enigmatic Iamamiwhoami videos were once rumored to be the handiwork of Little Boots. Brad, over at Muumuse, puts that to rest in his one-on-one with the English singer. Read their conversation here.

One eskimO - US Tour Dates Announced

Last year, two things happened in simultaneous splendor. First, there was the emergence of One eskimO on my radar, making me fall in love with a number while their debut album caught fire in my heart and amongst many a fellow blogger.


Two days ago, I made a quick note that London four-piece would be embarking on a tour of the US. Not surprisingly, I deemed these talented gents worthy of a full-on beast attack.


British innovators, One eskimO are taking their compelling blend of modern pop and acoustic folk to the United States, kicking off a two-month tour with several shows in New York.  The band will also play several dates with Gomez on this tour which culminates with a performance at Coachella.  One eskimO’s one-of-a-kind sound is matched only by their creativity, as they pioneered a “visual album” with “The Adventures of One eskimO,” a ten-part short-form animated series. You can watch, and listen to, the gorgeousness that is Kandi, here.

After a fantastic tour with Tori Amos last year, the band kicks off their adventures with 2 shows in New York.

Feb 4 -- City Winery -- New York City

Feb 5 -- Bearsville Theatre -- Woodstock

Feb 8 -- The Living Room -- New York City

Feb 13 -- Fifth Third Bank Stage (The Atrium at Compuware Corporation) -- Detroit, Michigan

Mar 4 -- Vic Theatre w/Gomez -- Chicago, Illinois

Mar 5 -- Majestic Theatre -- Madison, Wisconsin

Mar 6 -- Fine Line Music Cafe w/ Gomez -- Minneapolis, Minnesota

Mar 8 -- Ogden Theatre w/ Gomez -- Denver, Colorado

Mar 9 -- Belly Up Tavern w/ Gomez -- Aspen, Colorado
