Black Van already released the excellent “Moments of Excellence” this year, and now they’ve got a new song and a new version of “Moments” featuring Holy Ghost!, plus a remix of that by Aeroplane. A lot of really great new stuff. Hear them all below, and cop the single from Permanent Vacation now!
Black Van are back with a new single, “Moments of Excellence” which has a lot of shimmer and bounce, sounding like something good for your jogging playlist or just folding laundry (I chose the latter). Also included, their remix of Aeroplane’s new single. Ch-ch-check ‘em out.
Also, if you haven’t heard their first single on DFA DO IT.
“Moments of Excellence” is out now on Permanent Vacation.
Chromeo have got a new album coming out called Business Casual and if the first single is any indication, this one’s gonna be another barnburner. “Don’t Turn the Lights On” has been given the remix treatment by Aeroplane, and also a slick video.
You can pre-order Business Casual now and choose from some pretty cool packages that include t-shirts, limited edition lithographs, and of course, the CD and/or LP. Preorder here (US only). The album is out September 14th.
The duo is also setting clubs across the nation on fire with DFA upstarts Holy Ghost! in tow. They’re playing a free show here in Salt Lake next Thursday with Big Boi, which I am pretty excited about.

Aeroplane were one of the biggest hits in 2009, and 2010 may prove to be an even bigger year for the Belgian duo. They’ve been working on their first full-length album, and monthly they put out a new mix of some of the best new music in electronic today. ‘SUP Magazine was able to get an interview them, where they talk about their upcoming record, their remixes, and the Italo-disco revival. Check it out here, and listen to their December mix over at SoundCloud.
EDIT: the guys put up their latest one today, so check it out here.
‘SUP also has an interview with Ernest Green aka Washed Out, which you should also read.
