I’m really excited about Planningtorock’s upcoming record W. Maybe it’s because it’s on DFA and I love everything on DFA. Maybe it’s her close relation to The Knife. Maybe it’s just because I like being creeped out. I’ll never know!
Anyway. DJ duo CREEP remixed PTR’s song “Doorway” and it’s creepy. Haha. Haaaa. Ha… sorry. Download it below. Put it on your iPod so you can listen to it while in line for Scream 4. Do what you wanna do!

W is out May 17th.

CREEP is a Brooklyn duo featuring producers/DJs Lauren Flax and Lauren Dillard. Their first single “Days” has been floating around online for awhile but I just listened to it over the weekend. It features Romy Madley-Croft of The xx, and is sexy and haunting. Azari & III pumped it up a bit on their remix, check it out below, and the song’s video (directed by the Fischer half of Fischerspooner). See ’em live in the flesh this spring at SXSW and on tour with Klaxons across the US.
