Through the release of his first single “Headphones,” wonky-pop musician and producer Dan Black has announced that he will release Do Not Revenge, his first official full length since the 2009 release of ((un)), this May.
Since near the beginning of this year, I’ve been spinning a lot of the self-titled debut from Australian duoBag Raiders. Today marks the release of their album on this side of the pond and they want you to get hooked by hearing the first single “Sunlight” (featuring Dan Black).
Huge monkey off my back. I finally found an apartment to move to next month. I did enjoy the excitement of seeing each place, but I kept wondering if I’d ever find a spot. Now I’m wondering if anyone’s got any good ‘moving’ songs? I’ll probably need a good record for painting walls.
Here’s a couple of things.
-Found this post on ‘What’s Wrong With The Mainstream‘ about the origin of the song ‘Symphonies’ by Dan Black. An earlier version (in this post) of the song contained Notorious B.I.G.’s lyrics for HYPNTZ, with the same backing beat borrowed from ‘Umbrella’. I guess the label couldn’t get permission for the lyrics to make it into the song, so Dan had to write the current lyrics. I’m on the fence between the two versions. Both solid and great to throw on at the party.
-the new Air song (‘Do The Joy’)? I keep trying to get into it. I’ll keep trying.
