Yumi Zouma are a trio from New Zealand who have been releasing some incredible music. Full release coming soon hopefully.
Keep Shelly in Athens are back with a new singer and new music with the promise of more music soon.
From their forthcoming album “The Inevitable End” out in the US on November 10th. People are saying that this is their last album and that they’re breaking up. All they said was this was their last release in album format. Reading between the lines, I don’t think that means they are breaking up.
Why do the Japanese always get the cool bonus tracks? Daft Punk did the same thing with only giving them “Horizon”. At least we can listen to it on Soundcloud.

Time for a quick fall mix before the snow starts flying! Tricky is coming to Doug Fir on December 19th in support of his latest, great album “Mixed Race”. Should be an incredible show. Chromeo is coming back to Portland again late winter and they did a masterful job remixing Aeroplane and we pulled a track off their latest release “Business Casual” as well. Thunderball just released their first album in over 5 years called “12 Mile High”. Don’t expect old Thunderball though. It’s more a mix of their side project, Fort Knox Five and Turntables on the Hudson. Very nice album though! The new Ladytron single is only available on the Fifa 2011 video game soundtrack for now and Jamiroquai just released their first album in five years. I’m sure if you’re a fan, you’ll already have copy in your cd player, ipod, computer….whatever. Cheers!

The lazy days of summer are here and I’ve been doing my part by not adding anything new to this blog for months! Lots of new music the last couple of months and a few great shows coming to Portland in the months ahead. First up is Chromeo at the Roseland on August 13th. Tickets are going fast and their new release “Business Casual” is set to come out in the next month. The Chemical Brothers released another great album this spring. They’ll be in California for two shows later this month but nothing in the Nortwest! Hopefully they’ll come back for a full tour soon. Aeroplane’s new album is coming out in January but until that time we’ll have to continue enjoying some of their older remixes and this Friendly Fires track is a great example of their remix prowess.
Two Door Cinema Club is coming back to Portland again and this time they will be at the all ages venue, The Hawthorne Theatre on November 5th. Ratatat will be at the Crystal Ballroom on September 16th. in support of their latest release, LP4.
Some new music from Aussie outfit, Voltage. They are being produced by Cut Copy and they’re also on Cut Copy’s label and I have to say…..they sound a lot like Cut Copy. Nice track though. New Cut Copy album is coming out in January as well and you can download a track off the forthcoming album right off their website
