Miss me? I yearned for you and some new music news, but the extended 3-day break from the site (and life, in general) was warmly welcomed on these tired bones.
Up and at 'em!
Beaston-faves, The Fire and Reason, play Mercury Lounge tomorrow, Tuesday January 26. They go on at 7pm and are opening for Ebony Bones (ticket info here). The duo has also released a new, exclusive track for us to hear. Grab Crawl below.
Florence + The Machine has already started working on tracks, which she describes as "heavier" and "punkier" than her debut. Like Lungs, the album is being produced by Paul Epworth, who has worked with the likes of Primal Scream, Bloc Party and The Rapture. Read and watch more here.
Enigmatic YouTube-user, iamamiwhoami, is back with a 3rd installment of their mysterious videos. Latest guesses still swirl around Goldfrapp, Christina Aguilera, and now include The Knife (in regards to their Darwin-opera) and now The Golden Filter. Have a guess? Let us know after watching here.
Speaking of the London electropop-pair, Goldfrapp officially release first single, Rocket, from upcoming album, Head First. It leaked last week, and I'd be and idiot to post up the hi-qual mp3...instead, stream it here.
Crookers continue to promote the heck out of their upcoming LP, Tons of Friends, by offering up another free cut from the album. Grab the Steed Lord-featuring track, Transilvania, over at RCRD LBL.
