[Audio] Holy Ghost!’s ‘Okay’

 

Holy Ghost!

One of the greatest duo’s ever to come out of New York, ElectroPoppers Holy Ghost! have dropped another taste of what to expect from the forthcoming sophomore album Dynamics. We’ve already given you listen to two new tracks, Dumb Disco Ideas and Teenagers In Heat, which must have sufficiently whet your appetites for this long awaited record and this new tune, Okay, just makes us even more excited.

Okay is the albums opener and delivers a catchy entry point to the new album. Smooth and friendly, Okay revels in Holy Ghost!’s eclectic influences but remains a Pop song at it’s core. Sure, there are a couple of abrasive synth hooks, and a post-Industrial percussive pounding, but Holy Ghost! make it sound sweet with introverted vocals and a breezy, carefree mood. This is how you do interesting SynthPop.

Here’s the video for New York Indie-DiscoPop duo Holy Ghost!’s Teenagers In Heat, a track we featured last week.

Ben Fries directs the clip, which at first glace is one of those awful ‘lyric videos’ but upon further examination is a clever, sticker based journey through New York via the medium of VHS tape.

Frankly, the best Indie-DiscoPop band on the planet is New York’s Holy Ghost!. We say ‘Indie-DiscoPop’ as the duo perfectly balances the New York, DFA, Disco sound and an Indie tinged ElectroPop style to create something that is, at the same time, raw, funky and Poppy. We can’t think of anyone else doing the same, so well, right now. Hot on the heels of May eight minute epic, Dumb Disco Ideas, comes Teenagers In Heat.

Clocking in at a more Pop friendly 3m57s, Teenagers In Heat is a joyous and campy dramatic, analog ElectroPop beast that was produced by LCD Soundsystem’s James Murphy. A raucous and energetic symphony of buzzing synths, shuffling beats and a deliciously 80s post-punk vocal that has us itching to hear the duo’s second album, Dynamics, due out in September.

[Audio] Factory Floor’s ‘Fall Back’

Factory Floor

It’s been about a year since UK Indie-Electro/Post-Punk/Post-Industrial outfit Factory Floor’s last single. The first hit of their début album, slated for release in May, is finally here. Getting a little Minimal Synth groove on, Fall Back is released on DFA later this month.

Clocking in it just under nine minutes, Fall Back is a hypnotic Elektro Industrial excursion. Combining the sparse electronic assault of early Industrial, the listless vocals of Minimal Synth and the pounding of EBM, all wrapped up in Factory Floors’ effortless cool, Fall Back delivers an aural experience that could have easily come out of Sheffield in 1980. It’s an interesting hint of what to expect when Factory Floor’s album drops, and a track you can completely loose yourself in.

Holy Ghost!’s new single!

Holy Ghost!

We were teased it the other day, but now here it is in full. It’s the long awaited new single from New York Indie-Disco Holy Ghost!! That deserved two exclamation marks, one for Holy Ghost!’s name and one…well…just to exclaim.

It Gets Dark is the first taste we have of the duo’s forthcoming second album. After the greatness that was Holy Ghost!’s début record, 2011’s self titled album, we were pretty nervous about new material, all out fears have been cast aside though, as It Get Dark doesn’t disappoint. Raw synths, a slick Indie vibe with a slightly Housey chorus and that live New York disco sound that DFA are so known for. This is what we wanted from Holy Ghost!, full of vintage synth burbling and an anthemic chorus. The new album can;t come fast enough.

Holy Ghost!’s It Gets Dark is released today on DFA.

Benoit & Sergio; ‘Principles’/’Everybody’

Out next week on DFA is Benoit & Sergio’s follow up to ‘Let Me Count The Ways’, the ‘Principles’/’Everybody’ double A-side.

Both tracks are body moving, heavy based, New Your Disco at it’s finest. The flip side, ‘Everybody’ boarders on Tropical with it’s woody riffs, but it’s that hypnotic bass groove that will have you hooked. Beautiful in it’s simplicity, you’ll be hearing this track in dark, rammed, clubs all summer.

♫ Benoit & Sergio – Everybody

‘Principles’/’Everybody’ is out 20th June.
