2 Down 2 Dance may seem a rather glum tune, but the knotted and gnarled indie rock track easily leaves me giddily swaying on my feet anyway. The song comes from a band named Sorry, who obviously have nothing to apologize for considering the contagious allure and febrile potency of the UK four piece’s scuzzy tune. 2 Down 2 Dance will be out next month on 7″ vinyl, and it comes with a music video directed by members of Sorry. Pre-order the 7″, here. Stream/download 2 Down 2 Dance via major platforms, here.

To Moscow we go to re-visit with Pompeya as the duo unleashes upon us a heated disco twirler and smoldering dance rock sweeper of an anthem named Domino via an appropriately neon hued dance video. “Fall like a domino” I probably will once I finish dancing my heart out to the vivacious song, its funky licks, and pumping beats. The Russian pop/funk outfit has served up a sizzling hot jam off of their next EP, which arrives July 14th. Domino is both the EP’s lead single and title track. The full Domino EP was produced by none other than esteemed French house producer Fred Falke. Pompeya will be announcing a new tour shortly, too. I wonder what parts of the world it will be bringing them to, and whether San Francisco might be on the schedule.

Dom Anca, a young English producer who goes by the pseudonym DOMINO, has blasted onto my radar with a neon dreamy, bubbly vicarious bootleg. He gives Carly Rae Jepsen’s Store a scintillating re-work, creating an effervescent track out of it that seems to blend perky nightcore, springy Jersey club, and choppy future beats, with plenty of 80′s nostalgia. This glittery dazzling track can be downloaded straight from Soundcloud.

English art rockers Wild Beasts, whom I’ve been a long time fan of ever since the first time I discovered them at Outside Lands Music Festival many years ago, have announced a new full length. The moment I heard their sound and was drawn to the Panhandle Stage is deeply ingrained in my memory. I immediately fell in love with the band’s signature fusion of slinky synthpop and dark rock. New album Boy King will be released on August 5th via Domino, and today, Wild Beasts revealed its very first single in the form of a music video. Its seedy alleyway dance rendezvous is an appropriate companion to Get My Bang’s woozy torrid, steamy sleek dance funk. Get My Bang is a wicked seductive minx. It’s carnal and raw, lustful and sensual. And it’s a spicy first taste from a sure to be intoxicating album, which you can pre-order digitally from iTunes or physically from Domino

Massively woozy and psychedelic deliciousness is in store for you on LA Priest’s new song Lady’s In Trouble With The Law. The synthy project was created by Sam Dust, who’s an ex-member of Late Of The Pier. On his new song, Sam creates a heady atmosphere and a retro synthpop meets funky electro brew that’s fully intoxicating and wonderfully muggy. Lady’s In Trouble With The Law will be on LA Priest’s album Inji, out June 29th via Domino Records.

As someone who tends to be spellbound by edgy, ground breaking talent, particular ones that delve into the darker side of things, I can’t help but be incredibly, ridiculously excited by Londoner Georgia Barnes. I’d previously encountered her song Move Systems, but her latest envelope pushing, noisy electronic treat Be Ache is even more of an eye widening, hair raising experience (in a good way). The grimy, industrial tune drones and bursts with fantastic, lurchy movement, like a gripping fusion of PC Music, Grimes, Sleigh Bells, TR/ST, FKA Twigs, and everything in between. Georgia will be releasing a debut album come August 7th on Domino Records, and I promptly pre-ordered the record earlier today upon listening to trippy, stormy Be Ache. Catch the video for Georgia’s Move Systems below, which is more of a gritty M.I.A.-ish clattering, spunky explosion of glorious noise. I can’t wait for Georgia’s debut album.

On a roll here with the strangely unique yet wonderfully grooving and delicious indie electronic today. LA Priest is a project created by musician Sam Dust, who previously was a member of British quartet Late Of The Pier. As LA Priest, he’s released a new music video for his gleaming electronic pop song Oino, his debut on label Domino. Sultry guitar joins the song’s whimsical electronic production and Dust’s slick vocals. There’s a glistening funk sheen to the track that reminds me of Jungle, but paired with a more spacey, experimental soundscape.

I believe it’s been awhile since we’ve heard a George FitzGerald original, but the UK producer is back with a new one to remind me why he captivated me a year ago. I might consider it good timing, as George Fitzgerald reminds me of Caribou at times, and I’m catching Caribou live, finally, on Sunday at the Fillmore in San Francisco. New tune Full Circle, which features Boxed In on soulful vocals, is a smooth and entrancing song. Deep house groove and a simmering intensity are fully hypnotizing. Full Circle also happens to be a first taste from George FitzGerald’s debut album, Fading Love. Fading Love will be released on April 28th via Double Six / Domino.

Mocki – Weekend

January 29, 2015

Last week, I shared a killer melodic future bass and trap remix of Mocki’s Weekend by the always amazing Jai Wolf. I recall someone commenting that they couldn’t find the original anywhere. Here ya go, buddy. NOW, the original is available to stream. Mocki is a new act signed to Kitsune Maison, consisting of vocalist/songwriter Domino and German production duo Sister. They obviously have the goods when it comes to infectious, peppy electronic pop music. Hints of Kiesza like house punctuate the song, which also boasts plenty of Clean Bandit reminiscent bubbly progressions. It’s a combo that’s a stright shot for my heart, considering my love of both those acts. The Weekend EP is out now on Kitsune. Included on the release is the aforementioned Jai Wolf remix and remixes by Ruffian and Young Ruffian. Let’s revisit Jai Wolf’s take on Weekend below again, shall we?

OFFICIAL VID: Gardens & Villa – Domino

July 1, 2014

Earlier this year, Cali indie band Gardens & Villa released their sophomore album Dunes on Secretly Canadian. Today, they’ve announced a tour in support of said album, running through a long list of American cities starting in late July and lasting through November. To mark the occasion, they also dropped this woozy, colorful video for album single Domino. Who the hell can resist that flute riff on the simmering tune? If I were a snake, I’d be utterly charmed.
