Well it's not much, but it's something new, New Justice that is, fresh from the Ed Banger outbox and to be taken from an album do out later this year also to be titled ✞ (at least according to the ID3 tag). It's a very simple track, perhaps something that will serve as an intro (Hopefully!) Just as it begins to get interesting it cuts short, probably intended. Fingers are "crossed" that our other favorite Persian dance duo will pull out another winner and not a sophomore dud.

Scratch Input - Using Audio to control your computer.

For the nerds... yes, but pretty cool. It's a short but dense clip, hang in there, somewhere around the 3:00 minute mark the potential use of the technology will start to sink in.

Wild Beasts - The Fun Powder Plot

MP3 removed at the request of the DMCA...

Wild Beasts remind of the 80's in the best way possible.  Eccentric English guys who can play their instruments extremely well and clean. They use words not commonly found in modern pop music, such as "bereft", "bovver" and "donkey-jaw diction". Their songs are full of drama made of glassy guitars and syncopated rhythms and have a feel that is both "modern and of the renaissance" to quote their myspace page. Boasting Falsetto, Tenor and Baritone vocalists, I had to ask myself, "Is that Antony of Antony and the Johnsons sining with a more restrained Mew..." No, it isn't but it sure sounds like it.

From all of the songs on the 2nd record, Two Dancers, I choose "The Fun Powder Plot" simply because it's the 1st song on the album and it gently lulls you into their overall dramatic and dynamic sound. Plus it has may favorite lyric of the whole record "This is a booty call; my boot, my boot, my boot, my boot up your arse hole."

Love it.

Sometimes you just need some good old fashioned soul music, full of heart and conviction and sung by white guy from Boston. Enter Eli "Paperboy" Reed and the True Loves with 'Take My Love With You'.  This version from 2007 popped up on my iPod this morning and got my day started off on the right track, smiling and sining along.
