[Audio] JD Samson & MEN’s ‘All The Way Thru’


JD Samson & MEN

Here’s the first single from the new record from JD Samson & MEN. It’s been a couple of years since the ex-Le Tigre Samson’s MEN’s last album, Talk About Body, and we weren’t even sure if a new album was coming, so we’re pretty pleased about this announcement and this first tune, All The Way Thru, promises good things.

Co-produced with Yuksek (he gets everywhere these days, doesn’t he?), All The Way Thru is a lot slicker that we’ve previously heard from MEN. A more polished affair, it’s a slick mixture of Deep House, Progressive House and ElectroPop, with a bit of an Indie-Electro edge to it. What all that means is woody basslines, big synth sweeps and some really nice, heartfelt vocals. The single comes equipped with a Pop mix (!) and three other reMixes.

[MP3] French Horn Rebellion’s ‘Girls’

French Horn Rebellion

Not content with leaving it at just Poster Girls, New York duo French Horn Rebellion, even the inclusionists are now releasing a tribute to all Girls. Helped along the way by JD Samson, from Le Tigre & MEN, and rapper Fat Tony, French Horn Rebellion pull out all the stops to get the party started right here.

The new single a fun, feel good, tune with a laid back, but heavy, vibe. Rocking a bassline you can’t help but move to. Punchy synth stabs rub shoulders with  fleeting strings and a rolling electric piano riff in a multi layer tune where French Horn rebellion’s vocals are complimented by Samson and a breakdown from Fat Tony. Summery  and infectious, Girls will undoubtedly put a smile on your face.

MEN Vs. Lesands


Le Tigre’s JD Samson’s MEN are currently on tour with CSS, which I can imagine is a just a pretty chaotic holiday with occasional shows involved.

To draw attention to this, and to the fact that if you are attending a show you can pick up a limited edition tour 7” featuring CSS and MEN reMixing each other, the band are giving away this reMix of ‘Simutaneously’ be Lesands. Interesting Indie-ElectroPop with a funky little bassline, here you have the prefect warm up for your gig attending.

Catch the MEN


JD Samson of Le Tigre’s band MEN are finally heading for the UK for a bunch of shown in London and to drum up a little bit extra interest they’ve dropped a couple of reMixes of their ballad ‘Simultaneously’.

New Brooklyn based outfit Tête-À-Tête really do a good job, turning the tune into a full-on ElectroPop floorfiller complete with House piano and Soaring lead lines. Hipster DJ Lauren Flax chills things out more with a deep spacey mix.
