Okay, so with last month’s Vee Mix I got a lot of flack for mentioning all the great releases that have been coming out the last couple of months and hardly putting any of them in my mix. So to prove that I can actually listen to constructive criticism, I put a bunch of new tracks in this latest mix.
Fellow ex-patriot, Junkie XL just released one of his more dance oriented records in while. Maybe all the music he’s writing for video games and remixes he’s done for Madonna got him back on the right path again. Good to have him back again……..You’re not Dutch unless you throw four on the floor! Ghostland Observatory are an upcoming rockatronica outfit from Austin, Texas. They were just in Portland the other week and put on a great show at the Crystal Ballroom. Goldfrapp and Moby don’t need an introduction except that they both just released some listenable records. Had to throw some Cut Copy in the set. My band of the moment put on a great show at Doug Fir two weeks ago. I was curious to see and hear how they were going to pull off their polished production sound live and I wasn’t disappointed. Some of the reworks they did of their older material was brilliant. Definitely try to catch these guys live if they come to your town. Here is their touring schedule.
Ladytron’s new album is called ‘Velocifero’ and will be released June 3rd in the USA. 2 songs from the album are widely available on the internet at this time. ‘Ghosts’ is going to be the first single and ‘Black Cat’ is actually available for download from their website.
Finishing off the set are some great remixes of some older tracks. The Gorillaz remix is a stand out. Enjoy!
