new: White Denim (remix), Hourglass Sea, Fanzine

New stuff, some of it getting 'round all the blogs. Some of it odd new stuff that I've stumbled across online or have had sent to me.

Bjorn (Yttling of Peter, Bjorn and John) has remixed one of my favourite songs of the year, Drug by White Denim. He turned a rock n' roll powerhouse to a trippy bakefest and premiered it on RCRDLBL this week. I'm not even sure which version I prefer. (Get White Denim's D, it's a beaut)

I picked this song up from The Pigeon Post. The band are called Hourglass Sea. Listening to them is perfectly apt following an afternoon spent watching The Karate Kid (old one) or any 80's movie for that matter. "They" are in fact one guy from Bradford. Check out a song and video. Can't wait to see and hear more.

Fanzine have been likened to Yuck, The History of Apple Pie and other slacker/alt/sludge rock influence bands around London at the moment. Not quite a movement but some great bands making whopping good music. Have a listen.
