MP3(s) of the Day #742: Delphic

 
By on Tuesday, 5th March 2013 at 10:00 am
 

Manchester’s Delphic are at it again with the latest in a string of confounding actions. In January it was the less than wowing release of ‘Collections’. The latest? They’ve taken ‘Rehab’ by late cult soul singer Amy Winehouse of the pop genre they’ve professed to love so much and remixed it. Seems as random as the time they covered Cheryl Cole’s ’3 Words’ in the Radio1 Live Lounge. I’m not a fan of Winehouse, but I’m wondering, was this really necessary? This new version of ‘Rehab’ is available as a free download below, as is what they’re calling the Delphic DJs March 2013 mixtape.

We previewed Leeds lads China Rats in the rock / metal / punk UK bands chapter of the TGTF Guide to SXSW 2013. Now they’re like to offer you something free for the taking: ‘Nip It in the Bud’, a track produced last November with London producer Hugh Worskett (Delphic, I Dream in Colour, Katie Sutherland). Listen to and grab it for your own in the Soundcloud widget below. Their press folks sent me the below list of places and times when you can catch them live at SXSW 2013:

(SXSW 2013 flavoured!) MP3(s) of the Day #739: The 1975

 
By on Wednesday, 27th February 2013 at 10:00 am
 

I’m excited. The 1975 from Manchester are coming to my town 2 weeks after SXSW 2013. (We profiled them in the UK electronic acts chapter of the TGTF Guide to SXSW 2013.) When they are in Washington, they will be playing DC9, where Delphic made their local debut in 2010. Synthesiser band vs. synthesiser band…should be interesting if the 1975′s set will rival the Delphs’… But I digress…

The purpose of today’s MP3 of the Day post? The 1975 are giving away a collection of remixes based around their last EP ‘Sex’, which include previously revealed remixes by Ryan Hemsworth, Hackman and Andrea, plus two previously unheard remixes from Blue Sky Black Death and Plan. Listen to and download the Blue Sky Black Death remix for free below, and you can grab the whole load of remixes for free in exchange for your email address in the widget underneath.

Yesterday we showed you the new video for ‘Chocolate’, the lead song from ‘Music for Cars’, a new EP by the band out on Monday. Catch the 1975 at SXSW on Tuesday 12 March at 11 PM at the British Music Embassy’s home for the week, Latitude 30, and the ASCAP showcase at Red Eyed Fly on Wednesday 13 March, time TBA.

 

(SXSW 2013 flavoured!) MP3(s) of the Day (and more including an album stream!) #738: Atlas Genius

 
By on Monday, 18th February 2013 at 10:00 am
 

I caught Adelaide, Australia’s Atlas Genius open for Wolf Gang at this DC show in October. Consider this your notice ahead of their stratospheric rise to fame, as the band release ‘When It Was Now’ in America on Warner on Tuesday. The band are currently supporting Las Vegas band Imagine Dragons on a North American tour, before they shimmy themselves over to Austin for this year’s SXSW in March. Catch them play KCRW’s showcase at the Haven on Wednesday 13 March and The Warner Sound’s showcase at the Belmont on Thursday 14 March.

They’re offering up an acoustic version of ‘If So’ recorded at Electric Lady Studios absolutely free. There is a great video of the band recording it, which I’ve also included below. I’m in such a giving mood, I dug up two more remixes of their track ‘Backseat’, reimagined by Aislyn and Goldroom, for you to have for free too. And to top it all off, you can have a listen to the whole album before it comes out tomorrow, because I’ve embedded the stream for you. ‘cos sharing is caring, right?
