NEW Laidback Luke and Diplo, Holy Ghost, A Gun Called Tension, Netsayi, Au Revoir Simone and The Glass, ALSO some gigs and some hints....
I Will Come Back
Holy Ghost! have been busy playing other peoples’ records around the world, completing remixes for bands like Phoenix, and working on their debut album, tentatively set for release in 2010. So as not to deprive us for too long of their work, they recently linked up with Green Label Sound to give away this new single, “I Will Come Back”.

A Gun Called Tension
The Echo Bass Sessions Mixtape
As if we need to be convinced to check a mixtape calling itself “a journey where no musical boundaries exist!,” The Echo Bass Sessions is the newest release from A Gun Called Tension’s inscrutably awesome punk/dub/electro-whatever project. It sounds like the record collection of some dudes who listen deep and wide—which is essentially what it is.

Diplo & Laidback Luke
Hey! (Bombaman Remix)
We’ve been eyeing this collabo between Diplo and Laidback Luke for a few months now, and our pals at Dim Mak picked it up for an American release. Bombaman’s remix is the one we’re featuring today, a somehow more beleaguering flip of an already merciless tune. Surprise! There are lazers!

Au Revoir Simone
We imagine Au Revoir Simone as three little swallows on a snow-bitten branch. “Grateful” is the soundtrack for gazing through a wintry half-moon of glass above the bed. Gauzy swirls, tulip icicles and an entire tundra lies beyond these birds, but their hypnotic call quiets us.

Wanna Be Dancin’
This new single from The Glass coasts on its chorus; a mash of house piano, snippets of the “Woo! Yea!” sample, and its title slurred over buttermilk echo. If you play this on repeat for twenty minutes, as we just did, that title slips into your brain and all of a sudden you’re headed to the coffee maker humming “I wanna be dance...ing”.

And now for a cool track courtesy of Jez from Nile-On:
This week sees the release of soul singer Netsayi’s summery single Punch Drunk and the remix comes courtesy of Mighty Mouse, giving it the disco treatment! Last time we sent out a remix by these guys it was a dub step take on John & Jehn’s Looking For You – it just goes to show how versatile this act really are.
Punch Drunk is the first single from newly recorded album Monkey’s Wedding out later this year. A taster of things to come! Keep your eyes peeled for more remixes and a tour with Ladysmith Black Mambazo in the Autumn!
