After a number of disappointing full lengths from some of my favorite indie dance acts this year, I can’t tell you how excited I am for the debut album of Miami Horror this Friday. Following the trend of LCD Soundsystem and The Dead Weather, Miami Horror has been streaming their new album “Illumination” all week on USTREAM. After previewing “Illumination” repeatedly, I’m going to jump the gun and place it in my Top 5 of the year; not a single bad tune to be found! Stream the entire album above or check out this link to my personal favorite from “Illumination”.
Upon its arrival back in October, Miami Horror’s radiant synth monster, Sometimes, was an instant, dreamy classic (complete w/dreamy video). Since then, G.L.O.V.E.S. took it up a notch with his soaring version of the track. And now fellow Aussie, Shazam, keeps it rolling with his brand new remix of Sometimes, part of the recently released Moon Theory single.
No word yet on any new Miami Horror album info (all I have heard is that they have 11/12 tracks completed and are heading back into the studio to tighten up production). It is definitely one of the most eagerly awaited releases of 2010. With tracks like Make You Mine, Don’t Be On With Her, Sometimes and now Moon Theory under their belt, Miami Horror’s new album is a can’t miss (especially with collaborators like VEGA & The Golden Filter!).
You know you have the flu when wacking-off doesn’t even feel good. But, it also means a lotta good music for you! Well, actually tons of very good music. While I’ve been aching and tossing in bed, the past month has been a billowing heaven for awesome nu-disco and feel good jams. I’ll let the music speak for itself, and make sure you download ALL of it, because yes, it ALL is worth it. You can thank me later.
OK.ok, i know this was #1 on hypeM and blogged all over the place, but i couldn’t resist. Its just that damn good. Its indie-infused which i’m a huge sucker for, and we gotta give it up for our friends, LightsOverLA.
Barretso is one of my new favorite acts, if you’re just reading this now, grab the previous post here. This song is pure glitchy happy glory. Keep your eyes peeled for both Redial and Barretso in the future, they’re taking over a light up dance floor near you.
Funky fresh! All of this new grum is really giving me the heebee-geebies. Here’s the video to his new single “Can’t Shake this feeling.” Its out may 3rd directed by the General assembly and produced by TownHall.

In the same way that younger generations continue to fall in love with the likes of Led Zeppelin and The Rolling Stones, whose music from this generation will be rediscovered by the next? As bangers come and bangers go, funky bass and sparkly synths make this classic collaboration from Fred Falke and Miami Horror as timeless as it gets. “Embrace” is one track that I hope sees plays beyond the end of a great decade in music.
