We’re glad to see that one of our favorite records of the year, From Here We Go Sublime, is metacritic’s highest ratest record of 2007 thus far. This wonderful release by Sweden’s Axel Willner (Kompakt) is pure heaven for minimal techno aficionados. If you haven’t heard it yet, you can check out a track here:
MP3: The Field: Over the Ice
Speaking of amazing music, Of Montreal’s EP “Icons, Abstract Thee” is even better than Hissing Fauna, Are You The Destroyer? (which, frankly, we’ve been lukewarm on). Sadly, it’s a bit difficult to find: From Polyvinyl
As a bonus to online store customers we are releasing this exclusive CDEP Icons, Abstract Thee for mailorder only! (The EP will also be available from of Montreal on tour). The EP consists of five songs which are not on the Hissing Fauna CD.
If you miss the carefree pop of The Sunlandic Twins, do yourself a favor and get your hands on a copy.
