Just like... terrorists, on a... Day of Rest...

Adult. - Pray for Pills (Dirtbombs Cover) - On the unlikely split EP's front, this new release from Adult. and The Dirtbombs is probably the present top of the pile. The bands are about as unlike as any you're going to find out there, with Adult. carrying on the tradition of Electro begun in Detroit in the early 80's, and the Dirtbombs fusion of Motown and Garage Rock, the only real common thread is geographic. Nonetheless, they've decided to cover each other for a split 7", and the results are definitely worthwhile. (Be sure to snap this up if you're vinyl friendly, or scour the web for the Dirbombs side, a cover of Adult.'s "Lost Love" that might be the better track, but I've posted the 'bombs before.). Adult.s contribution is a cover of a VERY early Dirtbombs b-side. The track opens with a somewhat canned synth & bass line, but it's made up for by the sheer exuberance of the vocal work, and as the track moves, it just keeps on getting stronger, even as Kuperus's vocals just keep sounding more and more desperate. This is a limited run, 3000 pressing vinyl release, so snap it up people! You can listen to half of the 'Bombs track, and get more info here.

Kasabian - Processed Beats - Kasabian are a quartet from Leicester, England that have had a fair amount of success at home, but haven't amounted to a blip stateside. Following very much in the tradition of early 90's Manchester, copping a fair amount of style from the Stone Roses and the Happy Mondays, with some mid-career Blur in the mix, and a dash of contemporaries such as the Coral, Processed Beats was the bands first single across the pond. It's since been announced that the single that made a splash was a demo, and this, the album cut, is the final version. It's a bouncy ditty, sounding like an energetic, menacing Cooper Temple Clause that might just kick your ass if you don't dance to it.

I really enjoy your blog. I love how much you pumped The Arcade Fire. They're incredible and I can't wait to get my hands on the record. I actually just started up my own mp3 blog and was hoping to see what you thought of it: http://awesomecore.blogspot.com. I want to try and be musically varied in the same way you are... So let me know what you think!
