What can be more exciting than a new album from First Floor Power? Well possibly the even newer remix album, featuring First Floor Power’s new single The Jacket and four remixes of the same song, plus a remix of their To Do List, by people like Karin Dreijer and Hortlax Cobra (Peter Bjorn and John). I’ve chosen three of the other remixes here but you can listen to (and buy) all of them at http://www.klicktrack.com/klicktrack/releases/first-floor-power/the-jacket-remixes.
Talking of Karin Dreijer, First Aid Kit is the third exciting addition to the Knife’s record company Rabid records. But if you expect something that sounds like the Knife you’re in for a big surprise: ).
Here’s also two tracks from Tape’s new album Luminarium. Their last album was pretty good, if a little shapeless. Luminarium on the other hand is almost-perfect atmospheric semi-acoustic electronica. It’s pretty exciting. If you like it you can currently download four Tape-creations from Myspace (http://profile.myspace.com/index.cfm?fuseaction=user.viewprofile&friendID=53551718).
