Today has possibly been the dullest day in all of history. I have concluded that all things wrong with everything is the fault of lecturers who have monotone voices; why do they exist? Why do they get paid? However it has also enabled me to hide like a little mousey at the back of the room and source better things.
Bear In Heaven's new album 'I Love You, It's Cool' is almost ready to arrive as they announce the release date of April 3rd.
From that, they've already unveiled a track sounding typically Bear In Heaveny; synthy, electro, experimental. Also, I'll probably get gunned down by my Dad for saying this, but they do remind me of Talking Heads, particularly in Sinful Nature (listen here).
Also with a spring album planned, Santigold releases the second single from it: Disparate Youth. With M.I.A. also releasing a 2012 album, she'll never compete judging by this track but then again does prove with first single from new album: Big Mouth that she is no one hit wonder and has finally moved on from LES Artists which was released in 2008 and has nothing decent to compete with since. You can see her this summer at Radio 1's Hackney Weekend (23rd Jun) and Heaven, London (26th Apr). She's also rumoured to be collaborating with Odd Future's Earl Sweatshirt (Odd Future, so 2011).
Also excited by recently announced Dot to Dot festival line up. See above and click here for full list.
