Everything about Fra Nefarious screams the 80’s, from his candy-coated keyboards, to his vocals ‘ala’ Bowie and his funky guitar riffs, but Francisco Anthony Del is from present times. Don’t call him new wave revivalist or nu-rave pioneer, he is a sign that is still okay to write dance-rock jams if you make them sound effortless and, well fun. Yes, F-U-N. ‘Crazy Weather‘ is the kind of album you can’t say no to. Each track is essentially a tractor beam, gradually pulling the listener in with a blinding array of daydream melodies and neon-hued hooks. The potential-maximizing production of Fra Nefarious, who wrote every song on the album and performed every instrument on the recording process, are a living proof that this rising star is here to stay. A trilogy of spectacular lead-off singles (“Crazy Weather,” “Leaving on a Meteor,” “Space”) certainly don’t hurt matters, either. Definitely recommended for night owls and anyone who thinks dance music should only exist in super clubs and Ibiza. So Sound Recordings. (By Sean Levisman)
The first thing that’ll strike you about Mr. Nefarious is his expressive singing voice, heavily reminiscent of early David Bowie and Bryan Ferry. And many of the tunes on his new Crazy Weather long player also hark back to those artists’ compositions from the early ’70s — “Leaving on a Meteor” and “Mountain” are pure Ziggy Stardust-era Bowie with a 21st century sheen.
But then listen to numbers like “Space” or “Supernova Star” and you’ll be transported from melancholic glam rock to the uptempo exuberance of Chic-style disco-funk. And the time machine doesn’t stop there, it keeps on going right through the ’80s, especially on the Cure-like cut “Vapor.”
Make no mistake, though, none of its retro references detract from the originality and quality of Fra Nefarious‘s songwriting and gift for catchy vocal hooks.
“The Best Disco Album Of 2011”
“The best New York disco tracks since West End Records’ early-‘80s heyday.”
Escort has been setting dance floors ablaze with their disco-infused beats, irresistibly catchy hooks and seductive live show since releasing a series of 12” singles in 2006. The seventeen-member “disco orchestra”, founded by producers Eugene Cho and Dan Balis, and fronted by lead singer Adeline Michèle, features an incredible cast of musicians who have played with everyone from indie-rock titans Arcade Fire to avant-classical luminaries Alarm Will Sound. The new “Why Oh Why” (Pounds Sterling Remix) MP3 is a dancefloor banger that dares you not to move.

Download Escort – Makeover
With the self-titled debut album dubbed by SPIN Magazine as one of the “Best Dance Albums of 2011,” the band has received accolades ranging from Pitchfork to the New York Times as well as recently being featured on the cover of the Village Voice! Escort’s long-awaited debut LP will be released on vinyl and CD January 31st and is out oniTunes and digitally retailers now through Escort Records.
Steeped in the venerable tradition of club-land’s holy trinity, New York, Chicago, and Detroit, Escort’s self-titled new album pays homage to mutant-pop luminaries such as Kid Creole and the Coconuts & Ian Dury. While embracing the legacy of these forward-thinking but classic acts, Escort has managed to create something strikingly new. Featuring the theatrical masterpiece “Caméleon Chameleon,” the piercing horns and silky smooth vocals of “A Bright New Life” and “Makeover” which effortlessly explores the lost possibilities of another era the album also includes versions of their 12” DJ releases remixed, re-mastered, rearranged, and re-recorded specially for the LP, completing the album as a sonic experience from beginning to end.
