Discobelle favorite RAC is back with a brand new track called “Something About Us.” AndrÃ© Allen Anjos is keeping it all in the family by teaming up with wife Liz on this Daft Punk cover. It’s a bit of a departure from the usual bouncy nu-disco we’re used to associating with RAC, but “Something About Us,” though downtempo and melancholy, is a seriously saccharine tune.
We’re also excited to announce a ticket giveaway to see RAC to our Washington, DC readership. This Friday, July 27th RAC will be performing along with The Knocks, POP ETC, Vacationer, and French Horn Rebellion as part of All Things Go and Neon Gold Records‘ anniversary celebration of their monthly All Things Gold parties. To enter to win, just pop an email over to Nancy@Discobelle.net before Thursday, July 26th at midnight. Winners will be announced day of the show. Full event details here.
Another gem of a find from our Grindin peeps over at Neon Gold. Philly hip hop outfit Chiddy Bang samples/remixes last years biggest indie hit “Kids” by MGMT and come up with what is accurately described as “a summer anthem”. That chopped up synth sample is enough to have crowds go wild and you know we will rock this for sure.
Talented NYC rapper Theophilus London is rather hyped at the moment, he was recently picked up by Neon Gold Records (run by fellow Grinder Derek) and will most likely blow up in 2009. His new mixtape “This Charming Mixtape” puts us in Theophilus Londons world and it can be be desribed as – yeah that’s right – a charming mixtape which sees him take on a fun and versatile approach to all the different styles of music that he loves. Perhaps it’s best desribed as electro/hip hop but with a twist.
