Do you get the feeling that Miike Snow are pulling a Baby Monster and streaming the whole new album in the weeks running up to it’s release? Three tracks in two weeks?
Anyway, this ones a bit different, ‘Black Tin Box’ features Lykke Li, who you know we love a bit of, and it’s not a upbeat Indie-Electro track. What it is though, is a pretty powerful, brooding slice of dark ElectroPop with hints of The Knife. Although Lykke is painfully underused ‘Black Tin Box’ is a nice example of icy Scandinavian Pop.
♫ Miike Snow (Feat. Lykke Li) – Black Tin Box
Miike Snow’s new album, ‘Happy To You’, is due for release in March 2012.
This track’s making quite a bit of noise on Twitter ect….
I’ve got to admit, Lykke Li recent material, leading up to the release of her new album, hasn’t captured my imagination quite as much as her début album a couple of years ago. However, The Magician’s piano driven ElectroPop reMix of ‘I Follow Rivers’ is a thing of pure radness. It’s got that kicking bassline and the pianos of a early 90’s House track. I do like Lykke’s voice, this is the kinda’ track that could bring me back on board.
The week in Bangers: While electronic rumors isn’t strictly an Electro-House blog, we do cover a lot of Electro-House that crosses over in to our realm. So many good club tunes and reMixes surface each week we can’t (and wouldn’t) cover them all, so this is a round up of some of the best from the week that we didn’t have time to dedicate individual posts to…
I was determined that I wasn’t going to blog this new reMix of Lykke Li’s ‘Little Bit’, the song had been reMixed to death and when I picked up this reMix, by Villains, over at NME’s Daily Download blog I really wasn’t going to post it…I wasn’t!
Then I listened to it!
It’s now my favourite reMix of my favourite Lykki Li tune, it features some of the most infections, funky, kickin’ synth bass I have ever heard!!!
As I may have mentioned, I do quite like female vocalists with quirky/interesting voices, so I can’t help but have a soft spot for Lykke Li, especially when the likes of Death To The Throne take one of her better tunes and morph it into an Electro-House stomper!
