I don't want an electric blanket

Pete and the Pirates

Damn it's hot. I know I don't really know what hot is, but for me it's hot. Anyway, I have the choice joints for y'all (I can't pull that off, can I?). Incidentally, these tracks are by no means exclusive; I just think they're as hawt as the weather at the moment.

David Gilmour Girls will be joining Juan Maclean and Jason and the Astronauts at the Liars Club in July and it really does promise to showcase some filthy electro tinged ROCK. Dutch electronic mixters, David Gilmour Girls (otherwise known as Robin and Jasper) released "Crackhousewarminparty' as a 12" in January and the Rub n Tug remix is a strong cockail of punk, funk and electro with dashes of angostura bitters and served with flamed orange peel zest. Certainly, in the New Order's club-friendly dance music vain the rumbling basslines, echoey guitars and brooding synthesizers blaze a trail that sounds like Soft Pink Disco Truth doing the Tussle and dancing the tango with Cut Copy. It's mindblowing stuff if you just let yourself go.

The following track is courtesy of Pete and the Pirates. Stolen Recordings are releasing an EP of their material next month, but other than that, I don't really know that much about these guys. "Saviour" switches from sounding like everything you love about E6's pechant from sixties San Francisco pyschedelic rock to seventies Krautrock and electronic drone; although it never really sounds as experimental and cutting edge as i'm probably hinting at. Anyway, this track stands in stark contrast to their other material - that are largely more laidback radio friendly affairs - but equally as impressive. If you care about this, they reference VU, Apples in Stereo, Pavementand you know: all the good stuff. Clearly a band to look out for.
