Yo yo yo

Its all go at Thisisnotanexit HQ - and here's what we've been listening to on the Thisisnotanexit branded boombox (a boombox with a Thisisnotanexit sticker on it) this past week.

1. Battles - Mirrored LP

Nothing gets close to the amazingness of the single ATLAS but this is a mighty fine album.

2. Glass Candy - Miss Broadway

Glass Candy cover an old french disco track by Belle Epoque and go discoball-tastic. Forthcoming on Italians Do It Better its a label to FARAH is also signed up and her stuff sounds exciting too. Dark stalker disco.

3. Prinzhorn Dance School - Up! Up! Up!

New single from DFA signings Prinzhorn Dance School - not as good as their last single - but bodes for an interesting debut album. Already polarising people but in this day an age making people have an opinion is no bad thing.

4. Pylon - Gyrate LP

Being re-released on DFA apparently. A hard to find classic from 1980.

5. Ilya Santana - Discotized

Analogue Metro Area / Daniel Wang-esque disco with a bassline that just absolutely kills on a good soundsystem. He released a track a few years ago on Balihu but this is a dancefloor bomb.

6. Beyond The Wizards Sleeve - George LP

More edits and shiznit from Erol and his best mate. Not a big fan of Erol as a remixer (a better DJ) but his Beyond The Wizards Sleeve edits are always interesting and worth a look.

7. Michoacan - 2 Bullets (DJ Harvey Masterdata Remix)

Harvey mentalism. You can guarantee that DJ History are excited as he isn't prolific - but thats living in Hawaii for you. He's also remixed the new LCD Soundsystem single ALL MY FRIENDS so keep your ear to the ground for that.

Thats it for now, busy busy busy - check FACT Magazine for a review of Hatchback's forthcoming single White Diamond as the finished remixes arrive this week....
