Let It Go

Dragonette are back flying solo after two successful collaborations with Martin Solveig (‘Hello’ and ‘Big in Japan’) and the results are pretty damn good. New single ‘Let It Go’ looks set to be a big seller and the one and only Laidback Luke has boosted this even further with his remix below. I’ve always found that I appreciate Dragonette more when their tracks are complimented by the addition of a big house beat and this track is no exception…

1000 Minutes Part 37

I always tell the girls, never take it seriously. If you never take it seriously, you never get hurt. If you never get hurt, you always have fun, and if you ever get lonely, you just go to the record store and visit your friends“.

Certain songs, albums, bands even will always keep their association to the person they remind you of. No matter what happens, even if you want to lose that memory, you never will. My choices within this entry of my 1000 minutes all made it for that reason, some for that reason alone. I won’t go into the memories and the reasons because to most they will be pointless and probably quite boring, but I’m pretty sure that if the people they relate to read this post, they’ll know who they are and hopefully they will agree.

Hello

“I could stick around and get along with you, hello / It doesn’t really mean that I’m into you, hello”

Sometimes songs just hit you instantly, you know that on first listen that you need them in your collection. Other times though, they float on past you and then several weeks, months or even years later they swim past your ears again and you wonder why you didn’t feel it as much on first listen as you do now.

The latter happened to me with this track. Over the last few months my love for dance music fell off the radar, I’m not sure why, but all I could really connect with was guitars and good lyrics. This week the part of my brain that obsesses over heavy, electronic beats and distorted basslines reconnected and sprang back into action. I’m glad, I was starting to worry that I’d lost it forever. I blame the temporary lapse on a steady break in DJing I think, I’ve taken some time out from it to concentrate on other things and because of this I guess I haven’t been obsessing as much as usual over new tracks for my sets. I finally got back behind the decks again on Monday night and well, I guess it got me back on track.

So yes, the point of that drawn out story, heres an absolute banger that should’ve had me on first listen, but passed me by. Better late than never.

Fixin To Thrill

3513622814_22150fedae_o

Its been two whole years since Dragonette appeared to dominating the underground indie scene with their incredibly infectious ‘I Get Around’ and their tongue in cheek cover of ‘The Girls’ by Calvin Harris. Two years have gone quick right?

The Canadian Electro Popsters are back with what could of been disappointing follow up, but instead not only do they match the quality of the album ‘Galore’ it appears they may be about to blow it out of the water.

Lead single ‘Fixin To Thrill’ is out now and is set to become yet another summer anthem for the band, especially if the remixes that have surfaced so far are anything to go by. The album of the same name, is also set to follow in August/September time. The band themselves describe it as follows:

“We have a new album that is about to leave the nest and, like a young son, is going off to seek his fortune. Yes ma’am, this one is a boy. Galore was a girl. Fixin To Thrill is a boy. That’s a fact.”

Interested? I know I am.
