ok, so the mashup approach to mix albums has been around since the early 00′s – we’ve heard our fair share of quality and shocking over the last few years (some of the more notable ‘quality’ include the kitsuné maison mashed by electrosound and the now (in)famous grey album by danger mouse).
currently playing in the sydney office is the stereogum + team9 mysplice album which is more of an engineering feat rather than a mashup. team9 is the moniker of australian-based producer neil mason who has been producing the mysplice albums since 2007, has recently released v4 which seeks to blend beats such as vampire weekend + rupert holmes, YACHT + lykke li, phoenix + the cure and is definitely one of the best mashup’s we’ve heard to date.
you can freely download each track as an mp3 or the entire album as a zip package here.
the news is out… our second most favourite band out of portland oregan* starf*cker has officially changed their name after a year long hassle of bookers refusing to put them up for international gigs. the band put the word out among the fans and after much debate, the more respectable ‘pyramiddd’ has replaced the former handle.
to launch their new tag, pyramiddd have released a 7″ – ‘medicine’ which is taken from the band’s ‘jupiter’ ep and is a golden nugget of shimmering neon polka pop. the track is based around mellow disco beats and synthetic melodies and sounds like a mix of pet shop boys, saint etienne and late 70′s vienna fairground at christmas.
currently the ep is only available from rough trade shops in the uk, however, it will be available in the coming weeks through itunes.
