Rad News: Modeselektor Interview on This Week's Belly of the Beast

Ooooh wee, I'm thrilled for things! The German gods of all things IDM and electro, Modeselektor, are my esteemed guests on East Village Radio's Belly of the Beast this week. As always, the show is live from 8-10pm ET and it's happening this Thursday, September 22. You can read more here




In "oh hey PS other news...", my buddy Jason reviewed the duo's new disc, Monkeytown, which is Gernot and Sebastian's 3rd LP but the 1st via their own imprint.


Pre-order the album here. Dare we say... it's aaaahhhh sooo aaah rad.


Excitement below.

Yeasayer - Crazy (Seal Cover)

Never thought you'd see a Seal song here in these pages, eh? Nor did I, but when Brooklyn's Yeasayer heads down under, specifically to Australia's Triple J show to crush a cover of Crazy, the results are fantastic. It's like getting a kiss from a rose. #immediatefacepalm for that innuendo.

Retro/Grade - Reset (new single & video!)

One of my most favoritest newest bestest songs to listen and love up on is Retro/Grade's Reset, the forthcoming single from the Italian duo of Serge Santiago and Tom Neville, who were signed to the Deconstruction label late last year. So yeah, there's really no room for their failure here in Beastonia. Love love love this.




The single's out March 21, but you can hear it (almost guaranteed) every week on my East Village Radio show, Belly of the Beast. 'Tis that rad!


The video's out now.


You can watch it.

Everything Everything Cover Rihanna's What's My Name on Radio 1's Live Lounge

This happened on Tuesday morning, but it's about to tickle your fancy today. Everything Everything, that British art rock band who draw wildly affecting sounds of math rock, post-punk and electropop into one fun substance, took to BBC Radio 1's Live Lounge, and as all good performers do, went with a cover of a currently popular tune. Oh nah nah, what's their name? Everything Everything doing doing Rihanna Rihanna justice justice with with What's My Name, What's My Name.




Snagging backing vocals from Sunday Girl (who previously wowed us with a revision of EE's Photoshop Handsome) and Lianne La Havas, their funky, reggae-tinged and soulful cover of the chart-topper has me begging for more. 


Hey, let's play it again... Oh nah nah, oh ya ya!

Robyn - Indestructible (A-Trak Remix)

Open your ears and hearts you little beasts...for something so worthy of your attention that I didn't even listen to A-Trak's remix of Robyn's Indestructible all the way through before opening up this page to start writing and posting and swooning. So now, I'm doing all three of those actions whilst the remainder of the song plays and you should probably join me on this sexy lil' journey right now.




Annie Mac debuted this fix on her Friday night show over on the BBC's Radio 1. Love ya girl, but hey musicians, DJs and producers, how's about sharing the wealth with another chick who's got the Thursday night radio radness tip on lock here in the States.




Love this.

Interview: Metric's Emily Haines on EVR's Belly of the Beast (Thurs, November 11)

Just a little something to entice you before tomorrow night's weekly installment of East Village Radio's Belly of the Beast (8-10pm ET). Earlier this week, I had the most sincere and distinct pleasure of talking with Emily Haines, she of Metric, Broken Social Scene and solo material fame. Long a fan of her work, this was a dream encoutner that still has a beastly permagrin plastered on my face.


Emily haines


Head here beginning at 8pm ET to hear the exclusive interview, in which we chat about what the band is planning in terms of new music, creative processes and how a solo excursion to South America influenced and affected the singer. I may have also "fan-girled" out a bit and disclosed how nervous and sweaty I was in speaking with Haines.


Listen live!

The Dandy Warhols, Live on East Village Radio, Today at 2pm ET

Portland rockers, The Dandy Warhols, came together in the early 90's, prior to the invasion of the Northeast states' grunge movement. Strongly influenced by classic bands like The Velvet Underground, Beach Boys and The Rolling Stones, the band found a wall of sound all their own that remains timeless to this day. Nine studio albums, countless world tours, and one infamous feud with The Brian Jonestown Massacre later, The Dandy Warhols are back on the road in support of their latest disc, The Capitol Years 1995 - 2007, which is a greatest hits compilation of their best material.




Today at 2pm ET, I have the distinct pleasure of welcoming the band into the East Village Radio studio for The Dandy Warhols Live special two-hour program. I'll be joined by members of TDW, and will be playing selections from their nine studio albums, conduct an in-depth interview and then they'll perform live, exclusively in our storefront studio.


I'll also be giving away two (2) pairs of tickets to their show at Webster Hall tomorrow night, November 6. Don't miss out.


Listen live here starting at 2pm ET!

Marina & the Diamonds Cover Magnetic Man's Perfect Stranger on Radio 1's Live Lounge

Band of Skulls - Strict Machine (Goldfrapp Cover)

Earlier today, a few of us in the EVR office found a few minutes of solace whilst listening to some quick hits from Band of Skulls. The London garage rock trio easily slides in and out of everything from power riffs to Radiohead-esque tones, but did you know they're also pretty adept at getting their electropop on?


Band of skulls


Here, they cover Goldfrapp's Strict Machine, live on Australia's Triple J. BoS take the English duo's definitive sexy jam from boudoir to blissful.


Simply lovely.
