For all of you in the Montreal or those of you who are willing to make a trip out here to witness something amazing, April 2nd Miike Snow and Delorean will grace Club Soda with a surely outstanding performance. I’ve been waiting to see Miike ever since I missed their Osheaga performance last summer. Turns out their are touring with my new obsession Delorean. Unfortunately the show has sold out, but if you’re a monster fan I’m sure you can scalp a ticket or something. I’m going to start posting up info about shows in advance, as soon as I hear of them. Go scalp a ticket, or check out their MySpace profiles below to see what you’re missing!

Wow wow wow wow. Spanish group Delorean’s album Subiza just found it’s way to my computer today, and its the best thing I’ve heard all year. The group’s debut reminds me a bit of Animal Collective, but with a more tropical electronic sound. It was literally impossible to find a stand out track because they are all so perfect, however I’m going to leave you guy’s with the second track on the album, Real Love. You’re not going to want to miss out on their album when it drops later this spring, but for now check out their feature in XLR8R magazine.

New Arctic Monkeys! My Propeller – EP
I know this came out last summer, but I haven’t seen any hype about it at all, so here we go. Franz released an album of dubs and versions from their Tonight album. The 9 tracks are all alternate dub versions of their Tonight tracks, or mini mash-up dubs of multiple tracks. My favorite track is the dub version of What She Came For which they’ve renamed to Feel The Pressure — fantastic. The whole album is airy, absurd and very experimental (for the band anyway) and I strongly recommend you pick it up.
I’ve uploaded my favorites from the album, and a mashup I made from Feel the Pressure and Rye Rye’s Bang. It’s called Feel The Bang (lame I know, but it’s better than Bang the Pressure… is it?)
