Neu! :: Isi

Jul 22nd, 2014 : by :: Tags: , , , , , , ,

Here is a song to improve summer road trips from my top secret collection of ‘Best Driving Songs.’ It’s archetypal Krautrock from Neu!, who practices understated idyllic German psychedelia. My prescription: play this song while driving home with the windows open after a long day at the beach, lake, river, etc. Enjoy.

Giveaway : Ex Hex and Hospitality at Rock and Roll Hotel on July 24

Jul 21st, 2014 : by :: Tags: , ,

DC’s own Ex Hex (ok they are originally from DC) and Hospitality will be at Rock and Roll Hotel in DC this Thursday July 24. Should be a killer show full of the indie-rock styling that have become few and far between these days. Ya know, the kind with guitars and drums and stuff.

We are giving away two tickets — and to win just tweet us @newdust or comment below. Bonus points for telling us which DC figure you would invite to a dinner party, similar to the Ex Hex/Ian Svenonious dinner party in the video above for “Hot and Cold”.

See ya there and grab tickets to the show HERE and Ex Hex’s debut 7-inch out now on Merge.

PREMIERE : Arkells :: 11:11 (video)

Jul 21st, 2014 : by :: Tags: , ,

Excited to premiere the Arkell’s video for “11:11″. The Hamilton, Ontario natives are out with another 80′s pop inspired, indie-rock gem. Spoiler… it is about meeting a girl at a show. Great formula for a great track. “11:11″ is a follow up to the band’s previous release of the oh-so-catchy single “Come to Light“. Both songs are off the upcoming album High Noon out on August 3. Enjoy!

Michael Jackson :: I Can’t Help It (Todd Terje Edit)

Jul 17th, 2014 : by :: Tags: , ,

We’re right smack in the middle of the warm months, smiles and beach songs time. Here is a track to elicit summertime joy tears, a sped up version of MJs 1979 classic “I Can’t Help it.” Shaped by the Norwegian God of Disco Todd Terje, this is about as good as music gets. Enjoy.
