Have A Nice Weekend

The Juan MacleanLadies and Gentlemen, you may dance.

The Juan Maclean has been known to elicit party. DFA has this latest track up for your ears and feets. Use it. Add it to your Soundcloud mix for the weekend. This track again features Nancy Whang on vocals and I think it is John’s best stuff since “The Simple Life”. Big DFA-style beat, somewhat brooding at times, but always ready to break out.

Turn it up, enjoy the three day weekend if you dare.

New Music From Planningtorock

So here’s a new song from Janine Rostron and her awesome/weird musical project known as Planningtorock.  The song below falls into that odd and tiny musical genre I like to call “horror pop”.  Only a few bands (The Knife.. duh) come to mind that can create this sort of haunting vibe with their music while still incorporating some unique pop tendencies.  This new song “The Breaks” will appear on the new album W coming your way May 24th on DFA Records.  I also recommend checking out the new video for this song which will haunt your dreams at night…
