Recent White Car stuff got us pretty excited about his first LP Everyday Grace , coming out in a couple of weeks on Hippos in Tanks . So we thought we'd try and get a little something to keep us amused while we wait for the record to drop. Imagine our delight upon receiving a mix entirely made up of - White Car material!

A guy with only a synth intensely shouting lines like "I hate human race" and "Elvis is Jesus is Elvis" in a Slavic English accent? Like my friend said after seeing him live for the first time - "This just shouldn't work... But somehow it does!" It probably helps that the songs are catchy as hell.

Got super lazy with posting lately, but there's one thing that can always wake me up from a little blog hibernation. And that's something new by Light Asylum ! The duo has released a video for 'Skull Fuct', one of the songs from the good ol' In Tension EP. Shot and directed by Emilxa Xuryłowicz and Cezary Zacharewicz, the video "contains flashing lights which may not be suitable for photosensitive epilepsy". And c'mon y'all , it's not all THAT scary and glaring? Anyway, it sure does work great with the song. [...]
