You Love Her Coz She's Dead: New Single and Debut Album News

This news couldn't have come at a more perfect time. Feeling all sorts of "in a fit of ragey" mode today, grins are bearing on this beastly mug now, thanks to the news that You Love Her Coz She's Dead are just about ready to dish out their new single, and then another new single, and then finally their full length debut album. The UK duo is the equivalent, or shall we say, answer to Canada's Crystal Castles or even Germany's Digitalism, and since first loving up on 'em a good 2+ years back, the time is nigh to revisit their radness.

Elle and Jay Dead's self-titled debut album will be properly outed on Valentines Day, but not before initial single, Sunday Best, sees light on November 29. A follow up track will then be released on January 31.

 

If you can't wait until then, fear not my dear beastlings. You get an advance of the new single below, which is in part noise and electroclash, and in whole...amazing.

 

Get. It. Now.

Peaches - Jonny (new single!)

Errrrrrr....stop the presses, and stop your salivations, because before you get too excited, Peaches, you got a lot 'o 'splainin' to do! In the long-running series of Suicide tribute EPs, a new set is coming forthwith on August 30, and in addition to Effi Briest and Alan Vega himself contributing a rare B-side, the queen of all things clashed up in electronic fashion offers up her spin on a classic cover of one of the protopunk band's well-known songs.

The iconic musician led Suicide to infamy during the punk era, becoming outcasts with their adoption of primitive electronica. Johnny was originally featured on the band's debut album and showcases their more elegiac side. When the frontman turned 70 last year, prompting blastfirstpetite to organize a series of singles in which artists would tackle their favorite Suicide / Alan Vega tracks. Now, Peaches is due to take part, with her effort due later this month.

 

A striking cover, Peaches added her own feminine charm to Jonny (sans "h"), while retaining the grit and grumbliness of the original. Limited to just 1500 copies (order here), the one-off single also features a very-NSFW drawing by respected artist Cary Kwok.

 

Peaches follows in line with artists who have taken part in the series, including: Klaxons, Bruce Springsteen, The Horrors, Primal Scream amongst others.

 

Have a listen in below.
