X-Rated Video

Okay, you are probably already aware that M.I.A. is about as pretentious as it gets, but she does make some absolute Bamboo Bangas. I have been a fan since Bucky Done Gun so I heard she had a new song out and, something you are probably already aware of, the video for this tune is pretty extreme. Youtube have banned it and various newspapers and twitter have been going on about it since, so I guess it worked Mia! Here is the video, as well as some other X-rated videos I thought I might pick out that you might not have seen yet.

MIA – Born Free

HEALTH – We Are Water

Flying Lotus – Parisian Goldfish — This is genuinely worth watching; genius.

Crystal Castles

I once heard a story about Crystal Castles that they played a gig in Brighton and the story goes that Alica Glass was doing ‘something’ on stage and they had to get out of the gig into a getaway car and run away because the police had been called due to her onstage antics. Now that’s cool. And she’s seriously hot. They make music that is like having a heart attack because you took too much E; like dying but having the best time ever. Seriously man, I can’t wait for the new album, and it’s sounding seriously good already! Here are some links to listen to as many songs as I can find for you this evening. Enjoy! (ps. I think it has leaked all over the internet because we all basically ejaculated too early, so don’t expect the files to be there longer than about 2 minutes)



Not In Love


Year of Silence

I love everything I have heard so far. Go buy it!

They have seriously cool t-shirts too. Ima get one methinks.

1st May – Big Party

We have our next date, and we are making it a huge one with a very special guest DJ that will be announced soon playing some a bit different amongst the usual box fresh selection of indie, electro, chill-wave, zouk, experimental, afro-crossover, electro swing, caged children screaming and more! (the last few might have been a lie!)

May Day Party

Party Party! Invite your bloody friends!

Lots of stuff

I would just like to congratulate myself on getting a bargain denim jacket and very good leather belt from the East End Thrift Store down between Whitechapel and Mile End off the Mile End road. It’s a real un-mined glory of vintage shops because it is out of the way so you can actually get decent gear in the right sizes and reasonably priced!

Enough about clothes anyway, here is some music.

Jamaica are signed to Kitsune and I missed them a couple Sundays ago (probably for the best having broken my arm a few weeks ago) at Heaven when they were there with a stack of other amazing acts. Jamaica (used to be known as Poney Poney) are having their album lovingly produced by Xavier de Rosnay from Justice (lucky gits, that is basically a ticket to stardom right there!) and so you just know it is going to be the absolute nuts! Here is the video for I Think I Like U2:

That band are very much on the new side, but an old favourite of crumble and I am sure yourselves have a new album out. Yes, the long awaited new LCD Soundsystem album will soon be released. There may be something like a single available on Record Store Day so check that out this Friday. However, LCD have kindly released the album for our listening pleasure onto the web, much like MGMT did very recently with Congratulations shortly before it’s release and after it was leaked to the internet anyway! However, MGMT failed by doing that if you ask me because it only let me listen to it before deciding not to go and buy it (a very average album in my opinion – trying to be a bit more intelligent when they very much aren’t). James Murphy is far too shrewd to make the same mistake. This Is Happening is contrarily a very good album with a few rather dull tracks (I do not like Drunk Girls but know it goes down well live) that detract from something I am sure I will be listening to for a long time to come.

You can go and listen to the album in it’s entirety on the LCD Soundsystem website. Go, do, now.


I just want to add this link before the band become old news.

Blood and Gore

I love gore. Have you ever seen Dead Set? The Big Brother zombie film directed by comedy genius Charlie Brooker? No, well, if you have legs and arms and dentures and maybe a few pounds in your pocket go and buy what is possibly the greatest zombie movie that didn’t get to hollywood. For the time being, here is something to whet your appetite.

Mock and Toof are brilliant. Some of my favorite production and remixes of the last two or three years are down to these guys from London as they blazed the “nu-disco” [yuk] trail. After excellent remixes for the likes of the Juan Maclean, Holy Ghost and Hot Chip and a couple of their own singles, Mock and Toof are releasing their debut long player Tuning Echoes, May 24th on their own Tiny Stump label.

The record will be more vocal that we might expect and the promises “murky, low-slung disco-pop … bleepy boogie … twinkling electro-pop … vocoder-aided disco-punk and even some slo-mo beatless arpeggiation.”

Whatever, if the lead single is anything to go by, I like it.

Here’s something else:

Caribou – Sun [to celebrate today’s beautiful weather and the next thing I will do – heading to London Fields, picking up some beers on the way, and reclining in the sun]

Shout Out Louds – Fall Hard

Here We Go Magic – Collector
