My friend and future roommate Julien is back with his partner Michael. That's right boys and girls, Bastille is back again. If you ever come to Oberlin you should let me know and I can tell you if Julien is DJing. It's known that its a banger whenever that goes down.

Anyways, Julien and Michael have gotten even better. This time I'm most excited about their track Egalite which reminds me a bit of Felix Cartal's remix of Pick Your Poison in the beginning and then drops into something that sounds kind of like Knightlife or Russ Chimes. It's fucking incredible. I'm really impressed with this track.

Bastille - Égalité

The next track is just as good, except in a different, house-y way. A remix of Jackson 5: It's perfect for a set that includes Daft Punk, The Phantom's Revenge, and w.e other house/disco tracks you wanna play. Make sure to grab this one.

Springtime Falls.

Falco predicts that French electro-pop-rock band Phoenix's upcoming album will be one of the best of the year. On their past albums, they were a lesser Cut Copy emulating the slick swagger of The Strokes, but now that they've been fucking with a Korg or two as is present here in "1901", their relentless, digitzied optimism shines as they fuck shit up.

1901 - Phoenix

Another smiling disco-funk groove from Fake Tats favorite Breakbot. Sounds a lot like Sly and the Family Stone running through a Charlie Brown digitech pedal on Nickelodeon-electro mode. Another bullshit victory.
