Review: Nick Millhiser and Alex Frankel go from strength to strength, cruising their 18-wheeler disco wagon into the future without so much as a nudge on the brake pedal. "Dumb Disco Ideas" hits you straight in the face like a WhoMadeWho record produced by Tom Moulton. Hooky, pumping and precision produced, it's got 'sound of the summer' stamped all over it. It also comes complete with an insane video if you've got time for some visual titillation. There's nothing dumb about this at all.
Review: After the indie discoisms of "Drunk Girls", LCD Soundsystem have plucked the gorgeous "I Can Change" from their superlative third album for single duties. The gloriously 80s synth overtones of the original are left intact on the accompanying remix and dub version from Aussie duo Stereogamus.
Review: When they're not reissuing classic LCD Soundsystem material or coaxing an album out of Factory Floor, DFA Records are busy introducing new names to their roster such as Surahn. Formerly a member of Australian live disco outfit The Swiss, Surahn has spent the subsequent period flirting with nu disco stardom as Sidwho, touring with risible operatic compatriots Empire of The Sun and writing for Usher (no lie) His debut for DFA last autumn marked the fulfilment of a long held ambition to appear on the label, and here the masterful Prins Thomas turns a highlight from that self titled release into a typically fruity and expansive Diskomiks.
