We Have Band: Debut Album, WHB, Out Today

We have ears. We have hearts. We also have feet that love to move nonstop whenever we hear a lovely tune or two from forever a Beaston-fave, in We Have Band. With the trio's debut album, WHB, out today we all have reason to get down with the goings on from this talented troupe of musicians.

After going back through my archives, it's evident that We Have Band are long overdue for a massively mega rad post. While yes, we first swooned for the track Oh! some 2+ years ago, we've dotted along with the band's career and tossed out a goodie every now and again. But since it's their official debut album release day, I figure that the only fitting thing to do is dump a ton of treats on you. 

 

And don't worry, it's all legit, sprinkled with some exclusive mixes, personal faves, and a video from WHB themselves, thanking bloggers for their support. 

 

All I can say is you're welcome. Oh (Oh! puns), and go buy WHB now.

Metallica and Black Sabbath are teaming up for a special one-off joint release.The rock legends are both contributing a track to a 12-inch vinyl single which will be limited to just 1000 copies to celebrate Record Store Day on April 17. The release features the UNKLE remix of Metallica's Frantic and a version of Black Sabbath's Paranoid with alternative lyrics. More details here.  


Speaking of UNKLE, the band's fourth proper album, Where Did The Night Fall, is now available for pre-order via online stores. Get your "buy fingers" ready and head over here.

 

London's Punks Jump Up are some of our favorite badass knob twiddlers, and they get even beastlier by giving away their March Mix for free. This is the first in a new series of DJ mixes from the dudes. Watch out for upcoming installments, which will include more brand new PJU remixes of artists such as Miami Horror and We Have Band. Download the mix here and a track below that they feature in the full onslaught.

We Have Band - Divisive (new video!)

One of our favorite discoveries of some 2+ years ago was the catchy electrop-rock of London's We Have Band. Immediately drawn to standout thumpers like Oh!, the anxious anticipation of the band's debut album has lately been at an all-time peak, thanks to a few new tracks and some fresh visuals.

Tom WP, Dede WP and Darren Bancroft spent most of 2009 touring, along with finishing up WHB, the outfit's freshman full-length. The trio notes, "The singles are poppy, danceable and catchy but there's another side to us. We like a lot of darker music. Joy Division, early OMD, and Talking Heads are some of the things that inspire us. The three of us have lots of different influences and they've all come out on WHB.  We're so excited that it's now finished and will be released soon, it really is the full story of everything we've done from the very beginning up until now."


First up, is the single Divisive, out on March 22, prior to the release of the debut album on April 5. Full track list is after the jump below the video for said single.

Grammy's aftermath! Did you watch? Were you pleasantly surprised or perfectly stunned? I have my thoughts even though I didn't watch this year. Thankfully, my twitter feed was blowing up with oft hilarious commentary.

We Have Band had one of my favorite songs in 2008 with Oh! They are finally releasing their debut album, WHB, on April 5, with the first single, Divisive, out on March 22. To celebrate they're giving away the song Honey Trap, and I'm giving you my aforementioned fave. Grab both below.


Hot Chip are streaming One Life Stand in its entirety on their MySpace. They will also be performing a "not-so-secret" and free MySpace show at Highline Ballroom this Friday. Good luck getting in.


I've been crushing on the few Crookers' tracks they've let out of the bag, from their upcoming LP, Tons of Friends. Steed Lord remixed their song, Transilvania, done with the Italian DJ duo and it's all yours below. Get ready to grin.
