Little Boots is back with a new album and single. “Better In The Morning” is not bad, but it heavily borrows from Annie’s first album and some 90s’ beat we can’t figure out. Still, it’s a strong single if she gears it right.
Wow! This is a young talent that we think can do great things. The sound and voice is very Amy Winehouse, but she still has her own flavor. This is a great sound! We look forward to hearing more from her! Thank you Tiny for the amazing reference!
‘Regret’ epitomises the new album, an infectious gem which is already a fervent fan favourite from recent sold-out shows. Its relatively simple structure belies exceptional experimental musical elements and highlights the band’s focus on immediacy and impact whilst the depth and intelligence of this forward-thinking band’s take on the human condition are evident in the song’s lyrics.
Since there first release in 2001 and their classic cover of New Orders Blue Monday in 2002 ‘Flunk’ and their label ‘Beatservice’ have been at the very forefront of the whole Scandinavian electronica movement. Their mixture of icy electronics, indie guitars, and incredible vocals have served the band through 4 albums, numerous singles/EP’s, and live dates in the USA , China and most places in between.
For a band like Flunk it would be close to a criminal act not to make their music available for fans, friends and pros to remix. Flunk draw on popular music history when making their music, so of course being deconstructed, remixed, reconstructed and messed around with is a big privilege. Flunk love the thought of having their music recycled and used again, and ‘Deconstruction Time Again’ is a report from the second hand store.
The vocal stems from the “Lost Causes” album (2012) have been up on SoundCloud since its release, and there have been a substantial number of remixes of almost all the tracks.
Remixers range from merited DJs, like Italian Sandro S, to a father sitting on Iceland making fantastic remixes after his kids have gone to bed.
This remix album also includes great versions of older songs which have appeared over the last few years.
In a period of governmental and cultural transition, former The Pipettes
front-woman, Gwenno, releases a political concept album inspired by an obscure 1970s Welsh language sci-fi novel, subtly disguised as a blissful kraut-pop record.
Written by Gwenno and produced by Rhys Edwards, Y DYDD OLAF (The Last Day) turns its back on predictable commercial aspirations and lifts a defiant middle finger in the direction of the mainstream.
