It never occurred to me that the falsetto voice of the Temper Trap‘s Dougy Mandagi would be suited perfectly to disco music. Never even crossed my mind. Leave it to New Yorker Chris Glover, better known as Penguin Prison, to remix the Aussie band’s ‘Resurrection’ into a song that would work on any dance floor. Gosh.
I would love to hear what the Temper Trap have to say about this.

School of Seven Bells released their second album, ‘Disconnect from Desire’, in July and it’s a pretty fab record. Below is the Active Child remix of the song ‘Heart is Strange’. I really like it – it keeps the spirit of SVIIB but takes it up a notch. You can download it below.

On Monday I Dream in Colour offered this free track called ‘If You’. Unlike ‘I Get Along’ that we gave away in August, this isn’t country at all and is a more back to basics approach to a pop love song. Richard Judge’s voice is breathtaking and heartbreaking – all I can say is, damn, remind me again why America is in love with stupid stuff like the Fray? I Dream in Colour is the real deal.
Download ‘If You’ by signing up for the band’s mailing list HERE.
A few weeks back, we featured the Wombats‘ fantastic new single, ‘Tokyo (Vampires and Wolves)’ as our Video of the Moment. And now we’re thrilled to be able to be able to offer you two great remixes of the track. The first is by Leeds DJ Grum, and the second is by LA band Superhumanoids. Have a listen and download below!

Friendly Fires (pictured above) have been working on their sophomore follow-up to their certified double gold self-titled debut album released in 2008. In the meantime, they offered a special music mix to the ‘Bugged Out Presents Suck My Deck’ series just released this week. The mix includes the track below that I deliberated on last month, a collaboration with Azari & III named ‘Stay Here’.
The band is offering the track as a free download; you can grab it below. Note: the download is only available for 2 weeks.
