Right, so I kind of disappeared on you there—a point which was made abundantly clear to me after Dani Charlton mentioned it on Amazing Radio a couple of weeks ago. Sorry about that. Rest assured, I have a good, blog-related excuse. Some of you may already know—or think you know—what it is, but I’ll make a formal announcement soon enough. There’s a lot to get caught up on—new stuff from NewAm (including Missy Mazolli’s new chamber opera), two new September Girls singles, and new stuff from Northern Portrait due out in the coming months. If you’ve sent me something to listen to in the last few months and haven’t heard back from me, I’m sorry, I really am trying to get to everything.
So, while I get caught up, here’s the new single and video from Lissi Dancefloor Disaster to keep you occupied. You may remember the kitty masked Swedish electro duo from one of last year’s posts. “Kill the Winner”, a new single out today, is the follow-up to their first single from earlier this year, “Singing My Heart Out”. The single, with it’s synthy blips over a strutting, minimalist ’80s bassline, is a solid offering from a band who received a great deal of attention for their remixes before ever releasing a single of their own.
Since they are so clearly related here are the videos for both “Kill The Winner” and “Singing My Heart Out”.
