Melbourne-based Indie Synthpoppers, Strange Talk, released the first single, “Cast Away,” last month from their forthcoming debut album due out in 2013, and the band has commissioned our mate Plastic Plates for a fantastic remix that stays true to the catchy vocals of the original while adding a healthy amount of Tropical vibes and funktastic bassline. Strange Talk will also be playing a string of dates in San Francisco, Los Angeles, and New York this month, so make sure to read on after the jump for more info on show dates. √+

Snoballing off of my new ‘Tropicool’ alter ego and the success that has been attributed to the new set chocked full of steel drums, ocean and breeze samples, synth, cowbells and keys, I have a very special treat for you.  I’ve been digging deep into the genre and the archives surfacing with many goodies hidden in both my sleeves and trunks.  Within the next week, there will be 2 more installments of Waves ≠ Raves inspired by the tropicool beginning of summer sun-kissed weather.  Also to top things off, our friends The Ampal Creative who we put this collab on with are releasing the Summer line of Aloha hats, that for the lack of better words, are the Frothiest lids from here to Bali.

“The waves ≠ raves consists of hand-picked gems that inspire us, tickling and tempting our creative juices. Some are old, some are new, but it is what we are listening to now. They are groovey, flowing, and sun-kissed just like that perfect wave. They are uplifting and guaranteed to put a smile on your face. They sound the best with a babe in one hand, a cold brewski in the other, and the sand beneath your feet. Stay Dreamy.”
