HOLY GHOST! // BLUE OYSTER CULT

18 Dec

Bacardi B – Live have commission yet another blog hero and notcoolyet favourite – Holy Ghost! – to once again retouch the rock classic from Blue Oyster Cult. Cow Bell jokes aside, this track is AMAZING …

Whilst Vanshe took the track “back to the future” with their epic synth work, Holy Ghost! have returned it back to its psychedelic roots with a smooth cosmic disco number complete with their trademarked echoed claps, vintage synth bleeps and enough delayed cow-bell for Bruce Dickinson.

Served best with Prins Thomas’ diskomiks of ‘You’ll Disappear’ by The Phenomenal Handclap Band or a bit of ‘Man of Magic’ by Social Disco Club.

Thank god its Friday.

HOT CHIP // I AM NOXIOUS

17 Dec

Hot Chip has a new album coming out (number 4) to be released 1 February and we’re expecting, as usual, big things. ‘One Life Stand’ is a pretty laid back “geek pop” type of track with a depeche mode type of feel.  It’s certainly worth a listen although personally I’m hoping for some more upbeat material (like the epic remix of ‘Shooting Stars’ that Cassian has delivered of late).   As far as a Synth Pop prediction for 2010?   hmmmm I’m heading with I AM NOXIOUS

Gigamesh has just dropped a synth pop bomb and possibly THE remix of 09/10 Summer … for us Australians anyway.

Massive call I know (I always loved this tune).

That’s all.
