Inspired by Bloc Party's contribution to the amazing new Chemical Brothers album I stopped by their site where they have free downloads of three great songs off their EP. Predictably, my favorite is the remix of Banquet which is fantastic dance rock.
I've also recently discovered Tristan Shout, the new project of Bill the former synthman for Moonlife. At the moment TS is primarily making mash-ups and his stuff ranks with the best I've heard. Who would have thought that Moby's "We Are All Made Of Stars" would become permanently confused in my mind with Covenant's "Dead Stars" and I would suddenly start feeling a strong connection between Kraftwerk and Rupaul? Unbelievable stuff, and his originals have that spark that got me hooked on Moonlife. I can’t wait for more.
