So I have been hearing this song on the radio here in Switzerland for awhile by a French group called Housse de Racket. It’s you average catchy pop song, but for some reason it has really stuck on me. Here are a couple remixes you can check out by their fellow Parisians Gonzales, 25 Hours a Day, and Tepr (who was responsible for the awesome remix of Yelle‘s “A Cause Des Garcons”).
Although I wasn’t too excited about the Steve Aoki, El-P and The Neptunes, Chester French remixes that were recently released, I still do hold a soft spot of these Harvard boys, and am eagerly awaiting their full length debut album….whenever that may be.
In the meantime I have their single for “She Loves Everybody” that I picked up at one of their shows this summer, although I still haven’t opened….the packaging is just too much fun (image via Johnny Cupcakes). Stone, I think this might be up there with Brittany Bosco‘s EP, for best packaging for the year . So if your in the mood for a high energy show, which they will definitely provide, check them tonight headlining the Puma‘s 60th Birthday at the Music Hall of Williamsburg along with, The Knux, Charles Hamilton, and DJ Jus Ske. There is just one hitch…..you gotta go to one of the three Puma stores listed below to pick up a ticket. Enjoy!

Oh, and I got a special treat….check out a track from Common‘s upcoming album Universal Mind Control, featuring Chester French. It’s funky, but I’m still undecided on it, Common isn’t coming on very strong. What do you think?
So I don’t know when my relationship with Ladyhawke fizzled, but I recently saw her video for “Dusk Till Dawn” on TV and it kind of rekindled the flame. I don’t know why but I’m a sucker for 80′s synth-pop. Something in between a Whitesnake video and the movie Halloween, the video made me laugh so I thought I would share. Oh, and peep the Linus Loves Remix below…
I cannot stop listening to Alpinisms, the full length debut release of Brooklyn based School of Seven Bells (thanks again Andrew!). A record laden with dreamy pop and echoing guitar chords, it’s the heavenly harmonies of twin sisters Alejandra and Claudia Deheza that give the album an almost other worldly feel. They are playing Webster Hall on Friday the 14th (so wish I was there) along with M83, for those in NY. Be sure to check out the album, I guarantee you will enjoy it!
