Magistrates – Make This Work

Magistrates are a UK band signed to XL Recordings. They remind me of Phoenix’s pop appeal and musicality with Klaxons’ falsetto vocals with Jamie Lidell’s white boy soul vibe and a touch of Maroon 5’s undeniable catchiness. Let’s wait and see what their album has in store for everyone.

Klaxons x Rihanna Duet Live @ Brit Awards – 2.20.2008


Klaxons x Rihanna – NME.com

“It seems that Rihanna’s management have been very specific about how Klaxons should play on the night.

Talking to BBC Radio 1, the band said: “It’s been a bit of a funny one because she’s in America and we’re over here. They’ve got this funny idea of what our band sounds like and we’ve done three or four different versions.

“We’ve made our own slant on a contemporary version of it. It’s an electronic version with guitars on it, with a twist of ‘Golden Skans’.”

These New Puritans

I was listening to the Klaxons Radio 1 takeover last night and I really liked the track they played by These New Puritans, a fellow English band that is on their old label Angular Records. They even opened for the Klaxons on a past UK tour. Their music is likened to The Fall because of the very Mark E. Smith vocals but I’m sure singer, Jack Barnett does not beat his wife. Jack’s brother George use to be a model for Dior Homme and These New Puritans were commissioned by Dior to make a soundtrack for their recent runway show. A lot of their music reminds me of Blonde Redhead, circa In An Expression of the Inexpressible. Beat Pyramid comes out Jan 28 on Angular Records/Domino Records, and I really hope they tour the US soon.

Here is the track Klaxons spun on Radio1:

Todd Edwards

I just got my hands on Todd Edwards’ Odyssey and am listening to it and really digging it and I think to myself, wow Daft Punk really rips him off, especially his vocal style. I then do some research and find out that Todd Edwards co-produced “Face to Face” and is the guy singing on it. Ha! Oh and he is mentioned in “Teachers” off Homework. Daft Punk Discovery
Todd Edwards is apparently the godfather of the Garage scene in the UK, a producer from Bloomfield, New Jersey. I love what he does with vocals, he has this cut up sound that reminds me of Prefuse 73, just listen to what he does to the the vocals in the Klaxons remix. I love his synth bass sounds, they are so slick and the way he uses Fender Rhodes in his tracks. I’m so glad I finally discovered him.
