Someone Come Rub My Belly...
The Rakes - "Retreat" (Phones Remix) (MP3)
The Rakes - "Terror" Extended Mix (MP3)
I'm feeling so under the weather today. I woke up this morning (no hangover THANK YOU. I didn't drink last night) with a knot in my stomach that just won't go away. The only thing that seems to be making my tummy feel better are these new remixes i got for The Rakes.
I featured The Rakes on my old blog abt 3 months ago. I absolutely fell in love with their satirical energy that makes you want to clap your hands, dance all night, and slug the dumbass scenester next to you whose NOT enjoying himself for the sake of looking "cool."
Their dynamic live show has garnered much praise in their hometown of London and has allowed them to tour with such bands as Bloc Party and landed them a spot at this years' Redding/Leeds festival.
Their single "Retreat" is available now in CD and 7" vinyl through Moshi Moshi Records in the UK. You can purchase it right here.
Oh, and did I mention They just signed to Dim Mak Records here in the U.S? Steve Aoki I heart you. First Neon Blonde and now The Rakes!?!! You spoil me. Bring them back to LA. I'll show those brits a good time...
Tonight King Elementary and Marjorie Fair at the Troubadour, then off to see VHS or Beta and the gran re-opening of the Vanguard. I heard something abt free sushi, free valet, and open bar. I'm so there even if my tummy isnt.
