Pictureplane’s Thee Physical will be released July 19th on Lovepump United. Since the release of Dark Rift in the summer of 2009, Travis Egedy has been spreading his scuzzy, deeply sexual brand of 90’s house & trance to become one of the most prominent figures in American DIY culture. 2 years in the making, Thee Physical is a giant step forward for Pictureplane & is sure to be one of the most exciting releases of 2011.

Produced & recorded by Egedy & mixed/co-produced by Jupiter Keyes of HEALTH, Thee Physical is a celebration of human touch in a digital world. The album is also unquestionably Pictureplane’s best & most assured record to date: his vocals are confident & unnervingly sexy, the instrumentation is at once both purely electronic & surprisingly human. Pictureplane has managed to make electronic music deeply emotive–a synthesis of the human & the machine both in lyrics & sound.

And we were lovers…now we can’t be friends


This remix was shared by Crystal Castles this morning. Glass Gifts is a moniker created by Rich Cupolo, from Brooklyn, a producer whose first self-titled was released on September 21st with mad amounts of critical acclaim for his production style & polished flow. With his application of glitched out, offbeat, shoegazed dance driving beats he remixed “Not In Love” that features Robert Smith of The Cure. He nailed it!

The track is available now on Glass Gifts’ bandcamp with a pay what you want option including a simple email address.

This is your baptism

Found this in my inbox & thought it was worth featuring. Who doesn’t like Crystal Castles anyway? Dirty Sky Symphony are a young dj/producer duo from Derry, Northern Ireland & they’ve been getting some attention with this remix, I believe it’s been at the top of the HypeM chart twice. Enjoy!

We are not in love

Hey! so here’s that Crystal Castles single featuring Robert Smith of The Cure. The song, originally by the 1980′s new wave band Platinum Blonde, was covered by Crystal Castles for their latest album & now they’ve added The Cure’s vocalist to make it extra fucking amazing.

Single comes out 12.06 with acoustic demos of “Celestica” & “Suffocation” as b-sides.
