5/04 – Brooklyn, NY – Glasslands
5/04 – New York, NY – Le Bain (Afterparty DJ Set)
5/05 – Miami, FL – Electric Pickle

Totally Enormous Extinct Dinosaurs will release his debut album Trouble on June 12th on Casablanca Records. Trouble features the singles “Garden,” “Trouble,” “Household Goods,” and the new single  “Tapes & Money,” which was just remixed by John Talabot (listen via soundcloud). Trouble is a celebration of electronic music’s diversity and range. As Orlando, aka TEED himself comments: “I hoped to make a record that felt free from the frequent short-lived trends in dance music, and that made sense to a dancer and a listener. I feel like I’ve been working on this debut album for ages and now I can’t wait to get it out there.”

The album will be preceded by the “Tapes & Money” remix bundle on April 10. Along with the album track, the bundle includes John Talabot’s Ritual Reconstruction, the Eat Everything Rework, the Casino times Remix, and a Dub. Watch the “Tapes & Money” video here.

Totally Enormous Extinct Dinosaurs has quickly established himself as a singular and visionary new artist who is sparking interest worldwide. YouTube views of his “Garden” video exceed 2.5 million and he was recently invited by Damon Albarn to record with him in the Congo. His live shows swing between overt musicality and scarily on-point dance floor intuition, tearing up gigs around the globe with his live show of bizarre instruments, glitter cannons and of course… dancing dinosaurs.

Sure to be the highlight in TEED’s rapidly expanding catalogue, Trouble finds him completely immersed in the role of vocalist, singing throughout, providing the story with a genuine heartfelt quality. Of course this is paired with his trademark sub-bass, electro bounciness and washed-out synths that combine to create a stunning piece of modern dancefloor pop.

1. Promises
2. Trouble
3. Shimmer
4. Household Goods
5. Your Love
6. You Need Me On Your Own
7. Panpipes
8. Garden
9. Solo
10. Tapes & Money

Tahiti 80 Release New Album, The Past, The Present & The Possible
February 22nd, 2011
 (Human Sounds Records)

“…creamy, dreamy delicacies…” – Pitchfork
Mark your calendars! Tahiti 80, the critically acclaimed French sensation, is set to bring a fresh wave of sunshine to warm our hearts this winter with their newest album, The Past, The Present & The Possible, to be released on February 22, 2010 on the band’s own Human Sounds label.  The band’s song “Darlin” was also just remixed by John Talabot.  If you haven’t already grabbed it at  RCRD LBL, where is just premiered, then click HERE to stream/download the track.
Originally hailing from Paris and Rouen, Tahiti 80 has released four albums and nine EPs since their US debut in 1999, including the recent Solitary Bizness EP, which dropped in late October and is currently available on iTunes. Now comes the next move for these audacious Frenchmen: Comparable to Blur’s transition from Leisure toModern Life Is Rubbish,or perhaps clutching towards Bowie’s chameleon-like early day personas, The Past, The Present & The Possible is T80s most radical departure yet. 
Tahiti 80 is now a six-piece unit. The additions include long time touring members Julien Barbagallo & Raphaël Léger on backing vocals, keyboards, and percussions/drums changing the position of co-writer Sylvain Marchand due to chronic ear damage.  Their influences seemed to align, leading them to call The Past, The Present & The Possible both willingly and reluctantly “our Postmodern album.” It’s is by far the tightest, most complex and thoughtful instrumentation of the band’s career. Many first time happenings include Xavier programming beats for a record and Médéric Gontier singing lead on the warm, acoustic breezes of “Want Some?”. “Defender”, PPP’s opening track shows no mercy to the listener, building a new layer of infectiousness every thirty seconds.  In a same breath, the lyrics deliver the emotional content to either sing along or just soulfully listen.

Produced by Xavier Boyer and Pedro Resende, and mixed by Tahiti alumni Tony Lash (Wallpaper For The Soul, Axe Riverboy, Cardinal, Eric Matthews) and Tore Johansson (Puzzle, Cardigans, Franz Ferdinand), the album title is a nod to Factory Records Artwork Designer Peter Saville’sintroduction to Reasons To Be Cheerful; The Life & Work of Barney Bubbles: “The Past is the sum of strong roots, The Present is us living in our times, and The Possible is one’s interpretation of the future.”

The album represents this interpretation tenfold. While both The Past and The Present have taught us what to expect from the Tahiti lads, The Possibleis by far the tightest, most complex and thoughtful instrumentation of the band’s career.
