Hi Kids

Very brief on each artist because this probably is a waste of time :)

Music is sexy, yes? Allow me to put the top shelf bikini model level of sexy on display. For starters..

The Belgian Presets perhaps? Really cool 80% electro, 20% indie rock, 10% excess. LOL DOESNT ADD UP

!!! (Chk Chk Chk)
Somehow there are 8 people in this band. Although it seems like some pretty serious overkill, they end up with some really solid grooves and very hip tunes with a quirky twist and plenty of variety.

Good Shoes
Good solid guitary indie band who can write tracks that leave a pleasant taste. Not really ambitious or inventive, but if it ain't broke, don't fuck it up. Plus the songs are all relatively short, so they don't get boring.

Things To Make And Do

The Black Ghosts
Disco-indie-electro is the must have fashion accessory this year. Wear TBG.

Any Way You Choose To Give It (Fake Blood Remix) [alt link]

Bugge Wesseltoft
By no means a new artist, but Bugge is seriously good electronic jazz that any good music fan should love. At times very atmospheric and vast, at others tight, bouncy and minimal. Tried, tested and confirmed as perfect beach house music. Bugge rewards patient listeners with chilled out beats.

Bangin', jackin', bumpin' are just some of the abbreviated adjectives I would use to describe Switch. His simple yet extremely effective style is the same for almost every remix of his that I've heard, but he's got some seriously shit hot deep bass grooves that make me touch myself inappropriately. Two of his more recent

Speaker Junk - Foxxy (Switch Remix) [alt link]
Freeform Five - No More Conversations (Switch Remix) [alt link]

Neon Plastix
Fuck, talk about knowing how to write a killer chorus. I foam at the mouth through the brilliantly anxious verses waiting for my next fix. Like taking The Killers and Kaiser Chiefs, and dipping them in a salty disco topping with synths, punk haircuts and fluro shirts. A quote from the band: "the Neon Plastix try to hold hands with the dance kids whilst huggin' the rock kids! Think of us as SAMUEL. L. JACKSON in the Negotiator and you're not far wrong."
