Andy Bell - Call On Me (Hey Champ Remix)

Today's "just because" post comes courtesy of Pete, of the super-rad band Hey Champ. I don't think dude knows how much I love Erasure, and what with Andy Bell of the famed electropop duo off releasing solo material, this fits nicely into my Beastly-rapport. 



That said, Pete sent an email with the mix, and while I'd already once or twice received from various outlets, his message hit me at the right time and frame of mind to enjoy Hey Champ's fun and disco-sampling, club-ready mix of Bell's single, Call On Me.


Just because it's oh so good...and now you all know of my Erasure-affinity, as if I hadn't already expressed that multiple times in these pages prior.


High fives!

Also, tons of great tunes and news to share after a "meh"-tastic middle of the week in music. Let's ri-uh-uh-uh-uh-uh-uh-uh-ride.

Beastly Bits #55

Last night was pretty rad...and more on that later. But for now, there are bits to be beasted and there's no stopping us now.



Double numbers today...so everyone gets a high 5 and a "how do you do!" And this awesome news...


LCD Soundsystem's long awaited album, This is Happening, leaked last night, well before the May 17 release date. We'd be dumb to host it (so we're not, duh!), but with a little sleuthing, you can find it. The band played a sold out show at Webster Hall last night. Check out pics and a review here.


Supergrass broke up. Bummer. Read more on the split here.


Damon Albarn recruits Liam Gallagher's bandmember for Gorillaz. Interesting! Read up on the acquisiton at this link.
