saturday comes

brooklyn “discogaze” duo the hundred on the hands have been slowly rising on my radar since they opened for the golden filter back in june. they whip up quite the maelstrom live and their recent this desert EP hasn’t strayed far from my iPod all summer, its songs a seductive splicing of broadcast, ladytron and the xx. my boyfriend even hears a little bit of the gossip in the guitars.

they’re finally releasing their full-length, self-titled debut on sept. 24 through warp. this is the video for its premiere single “pigeons.” picture the infamous clip for prodigy’s “smack my bitch up” shot from the second person and blended with santigold’s “L.E.S. artistes.” it’s either just as cool as or cooler than that sounds. watch below and take your pick.

still working on a new logo but with your help, i’ve decided on a name! my new weekly internet radio show transmission airs tonight at 9pm ET, only on y-not radio. tune in to hear new music from aeroplane, delorean, teen daze, twin shadow, the hundred in the hands and many more. if you have a track or artist that you think is transmission-worthy, feel free to hit me up via e-mail or twitter.

flying high on sun airway

06.29.10

have to thank my friend john for waking me up to these guys. apparently a chunk of philly-based band the a-sides (patrick marscelli and jon barthmaus) regrouped post break-up to start a neat new project called sun airway. they now traffic in the kind of blissed out, chillwavy goodness that’s all the rage right now and i like them all the better for it.

their debut album, the awesomely titled nocturne of exploded crystal chandelier, should be out later this year. in the meantime, they’re offering up a shimmering, strokes-styled song from it called “put the days away,” as well as a couple of not-to-shabby remixes of other artists, the latest and possibly greatest of them being their wonderfully woozy redo of hundred in the hands single “ghosts.”

enjoy them all below. you can thank john yourself here.

sun airway – put the days away

the hundred in the hands – ghosts (sun airway remix)
