kavinsky – “nightcall” (stream-only)
Brand new single from France’s Kavinsky. Unfortunately, I can’t offer a free download of this track right now. “Nightcall” is from Kavinsky’s upcoming Nightcall EP, which is out digitally exclusively via iTunes on 3/26, with a physical release to follow on 4/5. There’s also an extremely limited vinyl picture disc available for pre-order direct through Record Makers. Also, check out the Record Makers site for info on their new iPhone app, which features music from Sebastian Tellier and sound effects by Mr. Oizo.
Another amazing release from French label Tigersushi. Synth enthusiasts Guillaume Grosso and Jeremy Duval enlisted help from Sebastian Tellier, Vast Aire and Hangar 18 for this one. Much more upbeat than their wonderful self-titled debut from 2005. These guys keep getting better and better, constantly working on music and honing their chops doing remixes for the likes of Poni Hoax and Joakim. An early, Vast Aire-less version of their song “Napoleon” appears on the Sneakmove Minicomp 3 7″ I curated. At the rate these guys are going, I’m sure the next album is going to be phenomenal.
Great little upbeat dancey track from Mr. Oizo. This is from the film he directed called Steak. The film stars Mr. Oizo (Quentin Dupieux) as well as music makers Sebastian Tellier and SebastiAn. Great soundtrack to an incredibly strange film. Check eBay for some rare versions of this DVD with English subtitles. The soundtrack itself is hard to find as well, but I’m sure if you’re interested, a little online research will do the trick.
