Weather(all) Report: Sun God Shining

As unabashed fans of Andrew Weatherall, we are pleased to see a late entry into his 2011 output. A remix of Cut Copy's 'Sun God' track from their Grammy(!)-nominated Zonoscope set. One wise wag described it as "trancey Pete Shelley". That's a good thing, yeah? And the band have seen fit to make the mix available as a free download.

Neighbourhood Watch - Bell Towers

Melbourne's Bell Towers is the latest artist to appear on the roster of Canyons' Hole In The Sky label. The 'Scavengers' 12" is a jackin' Chi house homage that is coupled with the acid flashback 'Private Time Dub'. With YMO also cited as influence, what more do you want? A tab?

The Peelies Deal Good Medication

Canadian all-femme band The Peelies have been pushing out tunes for a while but have recently had their profile heightened in Australia due to a deal with gaga digi. An old Peelies track, 'Does And Hoes', turned up on a recent gaga showcase compilation (with The Peelies confusingly credited as Pelie) and stole the show with their tear-down-the-walls-of-the-garage-to-make-way-for-a-carport buzz roll. A bit of digging turned out more recent output - a split eight-track album with Jesuslesfilles. Head to their Bandcamp page and purchase or sign up for a free download of 'Medication'. It'll be the best meds-related email you get since your spam program started filtering out those C1aL1s msgs.
