While most of you were cozying up to holiday tunes and waiting for jolly ol’ Santa to visit you with presents, I was strutting my stuff to some brand new argonaut&wasp. Okay, maybe I was doing all the holiday stuff too, but I certainly enjoyed my fair share of the Brooklyn band’s electro-funky indie rock. I am, after all, quite the freak for psychedelia, and argonaut&wasp’s Psychedelic Freak is just the sort of dance-ready rock to get this fan super freaking out. It’s part of an excellent new 2 track EP, which also features a rollicking heater as its title track, Radio Sound. Stream the perky and vivacious tune below. The two song release is some of argonaut&wasp’s most vibrantly popping material to date, and each one is as irresistible as the other, bursting with swagger and aplomb.

Despite our long love affair with Brooklyn’s argonaut&wasp, we somehow managed to let Prove It To You slip us by late last month. I don’t think we really need to prove our love for argonaut&wasp after professing our adoration countless times these past few years, but Prove It To You is a must listen and must share now that we’ve come across the funk grooving alt jam. There’s a Metronomy-esque wonkiness to the dance rocking, disco strutting tune. Prove It To You arrived last month alongside another fine funk wavy alt prancer named Body Sensations, which “shake it down” to below. Both tracks are out now via Bang! Jango Records.

Some might imagine “paradise” as being a tranquil and peaceful place, but that isn’t the sort of Paradise we’re about to step into today. Brooklyn collective argonaut&wasp swoops us up into a paradise brimming with gilded beats, bursting with sleek synths, strutting with decadent cowbells, and twirling in funkadelic luxuriance. The groovy dance punk spectacular alights with a chic stylish music video full of glam and pizzazz. Reflektor era Arcade Fire, The Rapture, and Franz Ferdinand converge to take a hearty swig of LCD Soundsystem on this dizzying spiral. Paradise is a sweet, sweet jam to shake your rump away to, all night long. The single is out now on iTunes via Noon Pacific, snag it here.

LA based indie artist Blair made his long awaited return two weeks ago by collaborating with argonaut&wasp on a cosmic soaring dance pop cut named Planetary, scintillating us with a brisk vitality that evoked a combination of Digitalism and Empire Of The Sun. That fabulous tune has now received a lavish official remix treatment, courtesy of California duo ARDENCY. This bold wavy, dreamy rippling makeover is an intergalactic joyride. The neon hued retro re-fix is a synthcore meets electro eruption of blazing brilliance.

It’s been a long eight months or so of waiting, but Blair, the Los Angeles based indie artist who blew the tastemaker community away with first singles Five Past Ten and Liquid Courage last year, is finally back. And he’s brought along IHM faves argonaut&wasp, too! Prepare for a cosmic dance fest as Blair and their Vermont buddies lift us up with sizzling guitars, frisky synths, and spirited beats on Planetary. It’s all very Digitalism meets Empire Of The Sun but with a rocking twist, and it’s pure fire. Blair promises new music every month this year. Jackpot. Planetary will be out on all outlets come Friday.

We’ve been eagery following along with Vermont’s argonaut&wasp for over a year now, and I’m gleeful to announce the duo has released a new EP, cheekily entitled “HA! FICTION”. The four track release opens with a swaggering dance rock romancer named Paisley, which can’t be more appropriate considering the song’s bombastic and ornate plumage. argonaut&wasp’s new EP is described as harboring nods to Talking Heads, LCD Soundsystem, The Clash, and Daft Punk, most of which can be heartily detected on swashbuckling Paisley. It sure feels like there’s also a nod in there to Franz Ferdinand as well. Good luck resisting the urge to get up and dance to this ebulliently animated golden jam. Stream argonaut&wasp’s “HA! Fiction” EP in full on Soundcloud.
