liars-blackWas just checkin’ up on Liars to see if they’re recording a new album, and their website is all black and directs you to Mute’s site. And on their MySpace there’s a new track (sounds obviously like a demo) called “It Means a Lot.” How do you think their new album will sound? Back to their roots? A disco record maybe? Just wonderin’…as you were.

Oh yeah. They played Coachella. Here’s a video of some song I’m not familiar with.

Sorry for all the videos. Uploading still sucksss.

Beth Ditto’s voice sounds fantastic on this track. I foresee awesome remixes?

dsc01328Okay I’m sorry for being the worst blogger for the past five days. As soon as I got home, the next day I started my summer job. It’s full-time sooo there’s not a whole lot of time in the day for blogging. Also, at home my internet’s uploading speed is awful. So uploading files will be a pain. Anyway, here’s a couple tracks I got over the past days and think you might enjoy? The Faint’s “Mirror Error” single/remixes were kind’ve disappointing, but I like this track.

The Faint – Mirror Error (Strip Steve Remix)

♫ Zombie Nation – Forza (Housemeister Remix)

dsc01320Okay so now I’ve got time I’ll actually talk about the concert a little bit (I know). The Crocodiles opened and were awful. Ladytron came on with awesome light-up things behind and well, were awesome. They were a lot better this time than when I saw them in 2006 at the Gypsy Tea Room. They cut their set short because their monitor blew or something, but they probably only had a couple songs left anyways. Then The Faint came on and made everyone go insane and lose their brain and dance (except the dude next to me who stood arms crossed the entire show, but with a huge grin on his face). I thought their newer songs (“Mirror Error” please) sounded a lot more put-together than some of their older stuff (“Glass Danse,” “Desperate Guys” excepted). Anyway, it was the most fun I’ve had at a show for awhile. Here’s some pics below and then you can see more at Flickr.

I don’t know much about Glasser. GvB posted a song of hers yesterday. Any way YACHT posted about this on his blog. It’s definitely a lot calmer and sounds like something from a DFA band, that’s for sure. It still has his weird little touches here and there though, so I am even more excited about his upcoming album See Mystery Lights after hearing this. And like Glasser’s voice.
