Love this new EP from the group Cadillac. They’ve signed to the hip Australian label Future Classic and this EP is pure gold. The 2×12″ and digital release include a set of remixes by Ray mang, Marcus Cabral and, oh my, Miracles Club. Here’s that one right here. Mmmmhmmm.

Here’s the original for comparison. They reworked the lyrics into a deep house vibe that really works, I think. Though the original is lots of fun too.

This weekend a cloud of good times will descend on Dallas! Brazileños CSS return in support of their fantastic new album La Liberacion bringing along with them MEN and EMA (it’s also a great day for caps lock). They’re playing at the House of Blues tomorrow night (Oct. 28th) and having seen CSS and MEN before it’s something you won’t want to miss. It’s also the one of the last nights of their joint tour so let’s send them home after a great show!

Tickets are $18, $20 the day of the show (so get ‘em today!). Doors at 7 show starts at 8. On other shows this tour they’ve done a drag queen show at the beginning of the night so make sure to be there early to see a local queen lip sync for her life!

Also CSS and MEN have an exlusive 7″ wherein each band remixes the other. Here’s a preview of that!

Here’s the new video from Jessica 6, “Prisoner of Love.” The track is a reunion of sorts, because it features Antony Hegarty, who did the vocals on several tracks on Hercules & Love Affair’s first self-titled album, and all three members of Jessica 6 were part of H&LA (singer Nomi Ruiz also did the vocals on many other tracks on H&LA’s first album).

The video’s simple and sexy, lots of lights and video effects. The song is addictive and sensual, and it’s good to see Antony back in the disco saddle.

Jessica 6 – Prisoner of Love

“Prisoner of Love” is from their debut album See The Light, out now on Peacefrog.

I mentioned yesterday that Jessica 6 is going on tour with Holy Ghost! and Eli Escobar but neglected to put up tour dates. Sorry ’bout that! Here they are!

I’ve really fallen for the French dance label Marble, which is owned by producers Surkin, Bobmo, and Para One. With just a few releases to their name, they’ve established themselves as solid tastemakers.

Their new release is from Sam Tiba, who hails from Northern France. His EP Black Eyed Weed infuses club bounce with some hip hop noises, weird synths, and plenty of character. Check out the lead-in song, “Zig Zag” below and buy the EP from iTunes.
