A Place to Bury Strangers - Ego Death

The Joker - Tron

Just added as pitchfork.com best new track usually i find a lot of their hyped tracks disappointing this is not the case with Bristols The Joker this track is white hot. I'm not even a huge dubstep fan.

Just off elmwood update ( Restaurant Week edition )

Its Restaurant Week here again and my day job is a cook so i feel our pain for this week. but for you lucky punters on the other side its paradise.
Since this is a music blog lets see what tasty treats have been served up in the last few weeks.

Appetizer - "Fang Island - Life coach" at this early stage could be the indie breakout artists of the year.

Entree - "DIE! DIE! DIE! - 'WE BUILT OUR OWN OPPRESSORS'" New zealand boys who are not to every ones taste but certainly mine!

Dessert - "Diamond Rings - Wait & See" What a way to end with something sweet, poppy and incredibly danceable. One of my favorite tunes so far this year.

Vitalic - Second Lives

Quite possibly the most simple music video ever made and yet it manages to disgust, sicken, and create roll on the floor hysteria cause we all no we have been in some of these situations. From the new album Flashmob.

Memoryhouse - Bonfire
