May start posting these ongoing “MOOSIQ MOSAICs” direct on IHM for those who haven’t had time to catch up on daily features and want to stream some rad new tunes via a handy Soundcloud playlist. Been doing this for awhile now, but likely many are still not aware (particularly if you don’t follow IHM on Twitter or Facebook). This one’s sonic gold, so many sizzling hot jams featured earlier this week on June 15th! Only songs that are streaming in full on Soundcloud are included in these playlists, snippets and previews are excluded.

I would count any day with a double dose of Phantogram a very marvelous one, and that’s the sort of day we’ve had today. Not only did we get a brand new Phantogram single, which I shared earlier tonight, we now get to have our brain rattled by a remix of A-Trak’s Phantogram featuring hit Parallel Lines by legendary dance punk and electro house purveyors, MSTRKRFT. These parallel lines aren’t exactly running parallel anymore on MSTRKRFT’s trippy revision. They’re squiggly and angular. They twist and turn, coiling back on themselves, amplified menacingly in an acid burnt techno fashion by Al-P and Jesse F. Keeler. The dark hypnotic remix comes from a Parallel Lines remix package to be released on Fool’s Gold June 1st. Head to iTunes to grab the track.

Do you know how long it’s been since a new MSTRKRFT song? FIVE YEARS. Five LONG years. It’s incredible it’s been so long, considering the duo have actually performed a spate of shows in past years, including one I had to miss in San Francisco at the Independent after Jesse F. Keeler’s other band, Death From Above 1979, played a riotous set. It was a weekday, and MSTRKRFT was to be on long past midnight.  I’m not a spring chicken anymore, if you know what I mean. Coincidentally, the new song MSTRKRFT unveiled today is named Little Red Hen. Why? What does that name mean? I have absolutely no idea, but Little Red Hen is a rush of dizzying adrenaline. Its acid washed synths and pumping bass nearly make me crossed eyed in head spinning, heart racing euphoria. I didn’t know little red hens could go so hard, or squawk so menacingly loud. You could say I have a new found respect for hens, all of a sudden. Purchase MSTRKRFT’s new jarring jam on iTunes.

Umm. I wouldn’t miss this if I were in New York. But I’m not. O_O
