The Irrepresibles are a ten-piece British performance art/music group whose music video for “In This Shirt” has been described as a mix between Antony & the Johnsons and Patrick Wolf. It’s maybe a little NSFW but here it is:

They’ve released a remix single for the song, featuring edits from Royksopp, Hercules & Love Affair and Zero 7. Here’s the H&LA remix below. You can buy the single on iTunes.

It’s been a minute since I’ve heard anything from Jessica 6, whose members all met while involved in Hercules & Love Affair’s first debut album (Nomi Ruiz sang several tracks on the album). They’ve released a cool sexy new single “White Horse,” which precedes their debut album See the Light which will be out May 24th. Check out the video for the song and a remix from Todd Terry below. They’re also on tour, playing a show at Miami Music week and on the east coast.

3/28 (Mon): Brooklyn, NY @ Knitting Factory w/Miami Horror

Run For Your Life

3097149178_85030e129a_bSo I’m pooped from studying for an upcoming American History test so when I do that I like making mixes for myself as a Runner. No I don’t ever run. Yes it sounds like a good idea. If I ever start, I have dozens of mixes to motivate me. Until then, they motivate me to remember who John Dickinson and Horatio Gates were.

Junior Boys – Work

Shadow Dancer – Drivetime

TV on the Radio – Crying (Telepathe Remix)

Hercules & Love Affair – Raise Me Up

Sébastien Tellier – Kilometer (A-Trak Remix)

Xiu Xiu – Bishop, CA (Kid 606 Remix)
