Baby Monster have made a few appearances on this blog before. We posted their remix of Wolf Gang’s ‘Pieces Of You’ last July and their own single ‘Ultraviolence & Beethoven’ the following October. If you can’t remember it sounds like this and you can get it here.
With their latest ‘She Comes Alive’ they’ve upped the game somewhat, tweaking the choruses, notching up the radio-friendliness, turning the ‘epic’ dial to 11. B-side ‘Sudden Symphony’ also really sees them stretch their wings. A big, bold, beautiful monster with more than a hint of Empire Of The Sun or Delorean it’s probably even better than the first track – definite reason to buy the EP. Which, since you ask, is out on March 29th via Big Stereo, a blog-turned-record-label that’s well worth following too. Check them here.
Next up, May 68, a band of NYCP-ish, Glass Candy-like, Chew Lipsian electropoppers who are currently touring the UK (hitting Sheffield, Bristol, London and more this week – details here).
They sent us an Egyptian Hip Hop mix of their single ‘The Duke Is Dead’ which you can download here.
