I’d be at Sled Island. Wow, check out that lineup. To name a few, Broken Social Scene, Yo La Tengo, Mogwai, Secret Machines and The Dodos will play the headlining spots/stage with a slew of other bands playing various venues are the city all week.

IMF fave Jose Gonzalez will also be playing the festival on Saturday. He’s doing some North American Dates to support the In Our Nature Remixes EP, which was released on Earth Day. Its a digital only EP with tracks remixed by Swedes Todd Terje, Penchenga Nord, Lanber & Skogehall and Beatfanatic (check out his version of Killing For Love).

Who: Tigersapien. from Philadelphia/New York

What: Half Tiger – Half Sapien, this striped quartet rocks out “Sweaty Sex” tunes that rub the listener the right way. They’re in studio working on their first EP as I write this, with DESIGNER DRUGS doing the production. Here’s a fun electro-rock track that provides a great up-tempo kickoff for the long weekend. The video game samples are more subtle on this track than the ones on say… Alice Practice by Crystal Castles . Crank the volume and enjoy it.

Song: God Knows

Here’s the new video for Repetition Kills You by The Black Ghosts. Recognize any of the vocalists on this track?One of them isDamon Albarn.

The britisth duo The BlackGhosts is one halfSimon Lord from Simian and the other Theo Keating from the Wiseguys. This pair met through the internet and starting working togetherright away (without actually meeting in person until a time later on after they had donesignificant work together). The self-titled album will hit shelves on July 8th; pick it up if you’re looking for listenable music with disturbing lyricsand tales of modern gothic romance.

I think itssome solid electro dance with hooks. Ask yourself, does your discotheque need haunting?
