Some things to make you smile:

Gee Wizz posting more regularly after brief hiatus.

Le Castlevania @ Pogo this week after missing his flight last week. (Use Gee Wizz guestlist for cheap guaranteed entry)

The fact that you can now join the Gee Wizz last.fm group we just started (CLICK HERE TO JOIN)... who knows it might have sexy results.

Demi Moore's burger (lol).

Remembering what you have instead of dwelling on what you do not.

Smell of shampoo.

The songs below.


Kleerup // Until We Bleed (feat. Lykke Li)

M83 // We Own The Sky (Maps Remix)

Hail Social // No Paradise (Adeyhawke Remix)

Lio // You Go To My Head

Soko // I Will Never Love You More


Last.fm comp

Those of you who are on Last.fm will probably already be aware of the competition that was held to remix the Foals track Electric Bloom.

(Yes i know we have probably posted our fair share on Foals but one more isn't going to hurt i don't think.)

Anyway the winner was announced yesterday, so without further ado, i bring you...

Foals - Electric Bloom (R Ingall remelt)

Also while I'm on the subject check out the video for Red Socks Pugie.



It has been a while since since I've posted anything, and i don't really have an excuse other than I've been lazy.

To tell you the truth i haven't even been really listening to any new music but i thought i would just post up a couple of my favs at the moment.

Both these tracks i love solely because they have been remixed by Metronomy who really do have a sound of their own.

Goldfrapp - Happiness (Metronomy remix Feat. The Teenagers)

Sebastien Tellier - La Ritournelle (Metronomy remix)

PS. On another note if you were planning on seeing Le Castle Vania tonight at Pogo don't bother, it has been postponed until next Thursday as he missed his flight.

Final Frontier

Forward Russia have just released their second album titled Life Processes.

If you liked their first album then you will love this, I think it is better than their debut which was already flawless.

It doesn't seem that these folks have had any troubles putting out that "difficult second album."

Forward Russia - Breaking Standing

Forward Russia - We Are Grey Matter

Check out their MYSPACE.


A Rose of Any Other Name...

Minitel Rose are a brilliant band from where else other than those Gallic shores, and of course, from our favourite stable (maybe equal with Italians Do It Better), majestic Valerie.

Their first release, entitled 'The French Machine', has dropped and has some great follow ups to 'Continue' and their Valerie Theme.

Almost like a French Klaxons, they have that same mystic edged rock from somewhere in the future that is mysteriously able to be traced back to historic influences (such as the rather Middle Eastern tinged Magic Powder).

Check out my faves below and make sure you buy buy BUY The French Machine! I'm not actually the biggest fan of what seems to be the upcoming single - Magic Powder, but there is much much more! You can also hear further tracks from Minitel Rose here at the Valerie blog, an original named Business Woman – an homage to the rise of the powerful and independent woman in the 80s (aka SHOULDER PADS), and a remix they have done for French indie rock band Papier Tigre.

Minitel Rose // Better Days

Minitel Rose // Elevator

Minitel Rose // Be With You


Let's Root

Ew not.
