First I was a fan of Hot Chip. Then I found The 2 Bears. Now, it seems as if Joe Goddard will also be doing a solo project under his own moniker. As it was with his last musical endeavors, Joe Goddard strays from the norm and creates something fresh, catchy, and tasteful. His latest release is a deep take on Tyson’s ‘After You’re Gone,’ and the amalgam of Goddard’s bold usage of Acid basslines and Tyson’s 70’s Disco vocals proves to be a knockout in this 8 minute epic.
Totally Enormous Extinct Dinosaurs has been signed to Polydor for his debut LP to be released sometime in 2012. The album will feature new and previously released tracks from Orlando, and in the mean time, Polydor will be putting out an EP for the track that came out on Greco-Roman last year, ‘Garden.’ The remix pack will be ready for purchase on October 2nd and is heavy with talent including Soul Clap, Hackman, Hot Chip‘s Joe Goddard, and more. Give a listen to Joe’s groovy take on the original below.

Happy Halloween week everyone! I hope you are all getting your weird, raved-out costumes together for the epic weekend ahead. As mentioned last week, we have a HUGE lineup for this Friday at CONTROL with a DJ set from Hot Chip and LIVE performances by Danger! and Drop The Lime. Now I know that some of you are on the fence about going to Hard Haunted Mansion and I am in no way trying to stray you from the amazing music that you would hear at the Shrine, but if your pockets aren’t as deep as they usually are or you feel like dancing to some great tunes in a more intimate setting, I definitely recommend coming to party with us at the Avalon. We will be holding down The House Party as usual with our good friends sweetFA, Mr. Anderson, Zander, and other special guest DJs. In addition, the Avalon and Bardot are teaming up this week, so Dim Mak’s Autoerotique will be playing upstairs along with a few other artists.
Please RSVP at JONAHDANCESDIRTY@gmail.com to be on the GDD guestlist for discount tickets (10$).
As usual, here are some tracks to groove to while constructing your sweet bubble wrap jumpsuit that you’re going to wear this Friday/Saturday.
i always feel the need to put new fake blood up on here whenever i get a chance, so here is his new remix of hot chip’s “touch too much”. If you are in the LA area before Christmastime you should definitely stop by the Vanguard on the 17th to see a free show sponsored by Scion. hey, i’ll be there, so you should too! have a good week everyone.
