Duchess at Bob Rocks TONIGHT

So I’ve been laying low on the DJ front, gathering new music to blow you away.

Catch me tonight at Bob Rocks for indie, electro, dream pop and disco fun!

Calling all South African friends. Meet me at Bob Rocks in Greenside from 9pm 🙂

Here’s some dream pop from Russ Manning, the former Twin Shadow bassist, to make you feel like my set has already started 🙂

Miike Snow – Pretender

Lyrics:

I didn’t wanna wake up
But then I felt your touch
Now I notice that I drink too much
And the turning of the universe oh

Spent the morning as a pretender
Will this be the age of surrender
The falling dark it lines
The walls let ours combine

I didn’t wanna wake up
But then I felt your touch
Now I notice that I drink too much
And the turning of the universe oh

And the children lie in their places
I can see the lines in their faces
The falling dark it lines
The walls let ours combine

I didn’t wanna wake up
But then I felt your touch
Now I notice that I drink too much
And the turning of the universe oh

Revolver – Let’s Get Together (Ryan Riot Remix)

Happy Tuesday! Here’s some lovely nu disco for you to start your day.

Here’s Ryan Riot’s write up from Facebook:

Ryan Riot is a swiss Producer/Remixer/DJ. After he failed with his career as a musician in the noise-rock duo “The Boarderline Personality”, because of absolute untalented instrument control of both band members, he switched his position behind the decks. He likes sushi.

Gross Ghost – Sooner Or Later

Loving their sound

Here’s some info from their facebook

Gross Ghost was born from a series of all night basement jam sessions laid down on ancient tape machines for eventual tinkering and transformation. The nascent demos were passed back and forth between guitarist Mike Dillon and bassist William “Tre” Acklen, where they mutated and matured with every volley and return to eventually blossom into the early Gross Ghost sound.

The occasional tropical tinges of Gross Ghost are splashes of sunshine over a frame that is heavily indebted to the night-time-is-the-right-time cool codified by the Velvet Underground blueprint. Like Dum Dum Girls and Thee Oh Sees, Gross Ghost bring a spirited perspective to a time-tested approach. Brer Rabbit, their debut lp, displays a surprising range for a band still in the process of exploring the outer reaches of their sound. Amid Spacemen 3-style production, there are touches of jazzy interludes that seamlessly segue into Margaritaville-vibes by way of the Smell. When the jagged strings come in on “Tenements,” it certifies Gross Ghost’s ability to channel the timeless haunting pre-dawn comedown moments Lou Reed crystallized into mixtape staples still lingering on two generations later. Their ability to explore so many sounds and craft them into a coherent whole puts Gross Ghost in good company.

Bat For Lashes – All Your Gold

I do so adore her voice!

All Your Gold Lyrics by Bat For Lashes

Never see the big, church staple, when I call you on the phone
Never feel the rush of angels, when we stay up late alone
Never whisper you a great love story, only scream and cry or more
But you’re a good man, but you’re a good man
I keep telling myself to just let go
O-o-oh, let go of the one who took all your gold

I get home and there’s a love note waiting,
But only he is here tonight
And the words, the ṗromises you’re making
Only echo all these lies
And for every sweet nothing you whisper
Why is goodbye my reply?
Cause you’re a good man, cause you’re a good man
I keep telling myself to just let go
There was someone that I knew before, a heart from the past
But I can not forget, and let him take all my gold, and hurt me so bad
But now for you, I have not been loved of all my go-gold

Stare my heart blank, am I ever gonna let him go? Get my gold back
And today I was a dead girl walking, city light birds, room for tears
Heard you say my name and get to talking of the love and all the fears
And you saw all the pain I was holding, and yet still you’d hold me near
Cause you’re a good man, cause you’re a good man,
I keep telling myself to just let go
There was someone that I knew before,
A heart from the past, that I can not forget
I let him take all my gold, and hurt me so bad
But now for you, I have nothing left
Cause there was someone that I knew before
A heart from the past, that I can not forget
I let him take all my gold, and hurt me so bad
But now for you, I have nothing left
All my gold
