The Child Of Lov has released Give It To The People (DS082D) as the next single from his eponymous debut album, which was released to critical acclaim in May. Gliding at suitably a laid back pace Give It To The People paints summer with a whole vibrant palette of colour, an ‘everything will be okay’ sentiment and breezy melodies.
Fehrplay’s remix turns the original track upside down, and gives it a proper pryda sounding makeover. Continuing to break new ground, Jonas was selected as DJ Mag Canada’s Cover Mix for June, and is definitely not showing signs of slowing down anytime soon.
IN OUR HEADS
HOT CHIP | WIG293 | Released: 11/06/12
Recorded in London and produced by the band with Mark Ralph, In Our Heads is the band’s follow up to 2010’s intoxicating One Life Stand and their first LP for Domino. In Our Heads will be available on CD, LP and digitally. There will also be a special edition vinyl of the album available on gatefold double LP with a bonus artworked 7” featuring an exclusive track. A free download of Flutes is available immediately when pre-ordering In Our Heads through Domino.
The collective talents of Hot Chip’s Joe Goddard, Alexis Taylor, Felix Martin, Al Doyle and Owen Clarke have provided a consistently stellar output which continues to evolve with a deceptive effortlessness. While their lexicon of influences includes a diverse mix of soul, R&B, gospel, Detroit House, disco and funk, Hot Chip have created a uniquely identifiable sound. Since 2004, they’ve released a string of ambitious and creatively bold albums of soulful, lyrical and melodic electronic pop. Their impressive debut Coming On Strong was followed in 2006 by the brilliantly buoyant The Warning, which earned the band a prestigious Mercury Music Prize nomination. 2008’s Made In The Dark spawned an international mega hit in “Ready For The Floor”, which picked up a Grammy nomination for ‘Best Dance Recording’. With In Our Heads, an unadulterated delight of an album bursting with dynamic floor fillers, euphoric earworms and verbose synth-fuelled love songs, Hot Chip cement their position as the world’s most talented electro-romantics.
At the beginning of the year London quartet Trailer Trash Tracys released their debut album “Ester”, a gorgeous, beguiling collection of pop songs with an intriguingly offbeam slant which quickly earned them glowing accolades from the broadsheets to the style press. The intervening months has only seen their profile grow exponentially, as they have journeyed around Europe on arena support tours and their mesmerising headline dates, centred around the sulphurous “Los Angered” – a cosmic fusion of 50s pop refrains and waves of drum machine patterns washing against Suzanne Aztoria’s intoxicating siren call.
Released on May 7 on Double Six, it is joined by another opportunity to familiar yourself with the quartet’s “You Wish You Were Red” (100,000+ YouTube views), which has been recently seducing new followers after featuring on recent Renault commercials.
To coincide with their first North American headlining tour, Twin Sister will be releasing a limited 12″ tour single featuring a Balam Acab remix of “Kimmi in a Rice Field” backed with a Lindstrom and Prins Thomas remix of “Bad Street.” Both singles appear on their debut album In Heaven released this past September on Domino.
