The Rubberbandits –  ‘Dad’s Best Friend’

The Rubberbandits channel the discombobulating rhythm of The Knife’s ‘Full Of Fire’ on this very disconcerting song about your dad’s best friend. He is nuthin’ to fuck with, a creep who wears Joop!. Meanwhile, the bandits are in London in the next few weeks in the Soho Theatre.

We’ve waited two years for a sequel. Just as it looked like nothing would arrive, over the horizon comes another suited and booted, locked and loaded, ’80s-heavy action movie soundtrack mixtape to complete the Blood Bros trilogy. BLOOD BROS III Back In America features songs from Top Gun, Beverly Hills Cop, Vision Quest, Teen Wolf,… Read more »

Well, this is amazing. Bonus points to Chairlift for recording a Japanese version of their song and making a video for it. Too cool.

Benny Smiles

Benny Smiles has given me one of my favourite tracks of the last month already with ‘Sunday Morning’ (below) but here in a turn into Rubberbandits territory, the Loud Mouth Collective producer combines with Ballz Deep (who wrote the lyrics and sings the tune) and goes for the art heads with an R&B jam about… Read more »
