It’s hard to believe that it’s been eight years since Klaxons dropped tunes on us like “Gravity’s Rainbow” & “Atlantis to Interzone”, paving the way for The Bloghaus Movement last decade. Their new studio album (the band’s third and first since 2010), is set for release this Spring and will feature powerhouse acts like Chemical Brothers, James Murphy & Erol Alkan. With collaborations like those, Klaxons‘ message is clear in 2014: these guys are not messing around. Furthering this notion is the group’s hiring of red hot duo Gorgon City (whose current song “Ready For Your Love is #4 in the UK) to produce the new album’s first track. The song, “There Is No Other Time”, is a pounding piece of Indie Dance Pop that is sure to piss off their crazy core fans (just check out the scathing comments already) but will most certainly win them plenty of new ones. Klaxons are back. Tell your friends.

Whether it was to reference Klaxons’ new album or to do a tribute to Modular People [in this case, both], somehow, someway I needed to do a post where I could include this year’s most glorious album cover. Generally I’m not a fan of album covers that are too silly or too over the top. But as you can see by the no-nonsense look on this astrocat’s face, Klaxons are not messing around: they’re back and they mean business. Their new album, Surfing the Void, drops on August 23rd. Stoked these boys are back in action…feels like it’s been forever (At least we didn’t have to wait for a follow up release from Klaxons as long as we’ve had to for fellow label mates, The Avalanches. At this point, The Avalanches are starting to reach Chinese Democracy territory).
Can any other label field an all-star lineup like Modular Recordings can? Their lineup includes seasoned veterans like Cut Copy, The Presets, Klaxons, Bag Raiders, Van She, Ladyhawke + artists like CEO, The Swiss & Tame Impala, all of whom are having monster 2010s. Modular are like The New York Yankees, except less douchey.
