Tying Tiffany – Drownin’

September 29, 2011

Tying Tiffany, who last year gave us the excellent Miracle is back with a new single, Drownin’, which amps up the guitars to create a more rocking sound. It has also been chosen to be included on the game soundtrack to EA Sports Fifa 12. Drowin’ is from her new album Dark Days, White Nights that is due out early next year.



Bunny Lake – Follow The Sun

September 29, 2011

We are very excited to present to you the new Bunny Lake single and video, Follow the Sun. The Austrian Bunny Lake have been on our radar since their 2009 album, The Beautiful Fall, which contained the brilliant 1994, Army of Lovers and Into the Future. Although the lyrics are sparse, there is a perpetual movement about Follow the Sun and a yearning to escape one’s current circumstances. To escape what is explored in the video that has a strong social justice and environmental theme. Follow the Sun will appear on their new album, Sound Of Sehnsucht.

Kites – The Disappearance of Becky Sharp (The Sanfernando Sound Remix)

September 28, 2011

The Sanfernando Sound has done it again, making a home run of a remix, this time for red hot Indie darlings, Kites and their brand new track, The Disappearance of Beck Sharp. Kites are from London and have been getting comparisons to New Order. The Sanfernando Sound has a knack of turning out some of the best remixes this year. We have raved about the remixes done for Starlings here and here.

MOTOR ft. Martin Gore (Depeche Mode) – Man Made Machine

September 28, 2011

Motor have secured quite a mighty roster of artists for their soon-to-be released album (Martin Gore, Gary Numan, Billie Ray Martin). This makes sense since they have toured with Depeche Mode and have provided remix work for Numan’s new single, The Fall. Depeche Mode’s Gore provides vocals to the lead single, ManMade Machine, an electro stomper that soothes of hard, hot, sweaty sex. To us, the single seems like an industrial take on the Bauhaus classic, Bela Lugosi’s Dead .

Frost – The Woods

September 28, 2011

Norwegian electronic duo Frost have a new track out, The Woods, whose catchy melody and sweet vocals remind us of a cross between Queen of Hearts and Little Boots. The single will be out October 17 and be included on their new album, Radiomagnetic.

The Opiates – Anatomy of a Plastic Girl

September 28, 2011

The Opiates is a collaboration project between Billie Ray Martin and Robert Solheim that began 3 years ago when they performed songs together (including Anatomy of a Plastic Girl) at the Rough Trade record shop. They are set to release their debut album, Hollywood Under the Knife, next month. Anatomy of a Plastic Girl is the second single and explores the devastating consequences of a hopeful Hollywood starlet who is scarred emotionally and physically by a botched facelift. It was directed by Jörn Hartmann. We love the creepy themes of the song and visuals. And as always, Billie Ray Martin looks great (does she not ever age?)!

Erasure – When I Start To (Break It All Down) – Steve Smart & WestFunk Remix

September 27, 2011

When I Start To (Break It All Down) is the new single, out today, by Erasure, and will be included on Tomorrow’s World, their fourteenth studio album. We are liking this remix, in all its unabashed HI-NRG glory, which we feel is more in tune with the Erasure we know and have fallen in love with.

We recently got to see Erasure live. Check out our Review of the show.
