It's As Easy As ABO

UK band Archie Bronson Outfit were already one of the most intriguing rock bands around before they hooked up with DFA label founder Tim Goldsworthy to record their latest album. And, their Aus tour a few years back proved they were one of the most intense live rock bands in the world. Their third album Coconut slipped out quietly in March and quite simply is a stunning effort. What's more stunning is that more people aren't shooting their wads over it. Hopefully new single 'Hoola' will change that - on Coconut it sounded like an extra-raunchy pop punk number, remixed by House Of David and it sounds like The Fall with Mark E Smith on a wild bender. Explore.

Dreams Don't Last Forever

When i'm not doing one armed push-ups, waxing my car and chewing tobacco I sometimes like to listen to music like this. In a busy world it's nice to take some time out to think about my feelings and work on pretend song lyrics. Sadly, dreams don't last forever, and it's not long before I'm back to the pursuit of happiness, mixed martial arts and hot chicks.

Tonight's The Nite Jewel

LA-grounded outfit Nite Jewel is mainly a musical project of Romana Gonzalez with sometime assistance from husband Cole MGN (of Ariel Pink's Haunted Grafitti), Emily Jane (of The Bubonic Plague) and Corey Lee (aka Corey Lee Granet of The Warlocks). They sound nothing like you'd expect that combo of hipster types to resemble at all. Nite Jewel create a cosmic pop/lo-fi disco hybrid that is sweet. Yep, sweet. First catching attention with the My CD/Your CD release(s) in 2008 which featured the waiting-for-a-Baleric-revival, wonky disco 'Suburbia' - resurfacing as a 7" last year. The Nite Jewel brand has also appeared on two of this year's best remixes: 'Odessa' by Caribou and 'Die Slow' by Health. Now Nite Jewel are offering a free download of 'Tonight', a cover of a track by cult San Fran club enigma Prophet from 1984. Thank them first for such a great song (and gesture) and then, if you've previously been ignorant of Prophet, thank them for making you aware.
