As it’s a bank holiday I’m picking four tracks for you lucky people this week including Shock Defeat!, The Horrors, The Big Pink and The Leisure Society. Here’s hoping for a sunny one…

Friday

mp3: Shock Defeat! – Fast Hands

Shock Defeat! are Felix of Hot Chip’s favourite London band. Sure with their funky bass lines, noodly guitars and relentless disco drum beats on some levels they sound a lot like their peers Foals and The Rapture. But it’s the quirky vocal delivery of Nic Carter and their slightly off kilter stance more akin to Talking Heads or Devo that makes them a vital new addition to the scene. ‘Fast Hands’ is taken from their ‘Rubber Headband’ EP. The band are as yet unsigned but will be presumably self-releasing another EP, ‘Olympic Village’ soon. Meanwhile go see them live, I’ve heard great things. Date below.

For Fans Of: Talking Heads, The Rapture, Foals.

live: Be @ Proud Gallery, May 23rd.

What? The Big Pink

At last years Swn festival in Cardiff The Big Pink were one of my highlights. They are Londoners Milo and Robbie and they make trippy shoegaze electronic jams with layers of distorted guitar, drum machines and blokey vocal harmonies. They were also recently picked out as one of the BBC’s ones to watch for 2009 so expect this to sell out.
For fans of: TV On The Radio, School Of Seven Bells, Secret Machines, Fuck Buttons, Spacemen 3.

When? Thursday, April 23rd.

Where? ICA, Pall Mall.

How Much? £8.50
