Holy Ghost! Holy Ghost!

Thursday, June 23rd, 2011

New York electronic genius’ Holy Ghost! released their full length debut awhile back, and it’s pure gold. I’ve loved them from the first moment I heard I Will Come Back, and have been a fan ever since.  They are disco, floor-filling masterminds whose intoxicating tracks make your muscles twitch on each bassline.  The modern disco king, James Murphy of DFA Records and LCD Soundsytem, not only signed them but also produced their first single.  In their debut full length they have shown they are a force in the genre and will be headlining their own tours soon.  The new single Wait and See, is my favorite track of 2011. ENJOY

Did you know this is a shot by shot remake of New Order’s-Confusion

Free Press Summerfest This Weekend – Holy Ship! Lineup Out

Thursday, June 2nd, 2011

Summerfest has progressed into a legit festival over the last few years, major headliners and the price is right. I’m anxious to see the production and how it compares to major festivals. Tickets are still available and they are only $45 for two day pass. Beirut who’s sold out show at ACL Live next week will be there in addition to Weezer, Ween, Chromeo, Bun B, and Cut Copy. Cut Copy is also playing a DJ set Sunday night at Fitzgeralds but if you have to get back to Austin skip it as their DJ set a while back at Malverde wasn’t that great.

Check this a fucking 3 day electronic music cruise with stops in the Bahamas and a concert featuring Fatboy Slim and Diplo on a private island.
