and the winner is... The Horrors - Primary Colours
the stylish boys won the battle over the 2nd "difficult" album
it's not original, it's not groundbreaking but, fuck me, it's breathtaking
when it first came, the video of Sea Within A Sea, created chaos among the indie kids of this world
they lost some 15-years-old fans but they earned much respect from the rest of us

this album would be really different without the guidance of the producer Geoff Barrow(Portishead)
--Barrow is a critical element for the "universal critical acclaim"--
every sound, every little detail in this album is captivating

this album is one of the main reasons why the post-punk (/New Grave/) scene in uk is gonna explode sometime next year...

this is what we said when it first leaked:

"don't get me wrong but i really didn't expect this to happen
after a good debut influenced by garage and post punk bands the horrors come back with a near masterpiece album influenced mainly by shoegaze bands
i really didn't see that coming and i suppose you will be surprised as well
i hope in a good way
you can't find any Count In Fives here
but you won't need to do it
primary colours can be described as shoegaze meets post punk and dark wave
this is the Horrors after 2 years using their instruments in a totally different way
this is Farris singing in a totally different way
Geoff Barrow (Portishead) produced the album and he's done a great job
this is gonna top even the lists of the music snobs

the members of BloodOnOurShoes rarely rate an album but this time i'm so excited that i'm gonna give this shit nite out of ten and please allow me to declare this as a modern classic

Favourite Albums Of 2009 #2

Arctic Monkeys - Humbug

this is the only album that we all agreeded with,that's why it's in the 2nd place,although i would put it somewhere lower
Arctic Monkeys didn't disappoint us with their 3rd album,though it required several listens to get used to it
by the time Josh Homme was in the producer's role,along with the master James Ford,we somehow knew what these fellas were up to
the result was a beautiful album,different from their previous releases,finding the band into more dark paths,and kind of grown-up lyrically
Alex Turner is a true hero of the 00s,he has done 4 great albums so far,i can't wait to see what he's planning to do next

Crying Lightning is one of 2009's best singles for me

Favorite Albums Of 2009 #3

The Bloody Beetroots - Romborama

this is our favorite electro act of the year
2 italian guys, Sir Bobby Rifo and Tommy Tea are behind these Venom masks
Romborama is a 21-track, 1.21-long disco-rave MONSTER

everyone expected them to release a hard-rave album
that's exactly what they didn't
they mixed all their influences, punk-rock,tech-house,disco,rave,electropop, eveything
and they created something huge

apart from the already known bangers like Cornelius, Butter, Yeyo, FFA1985
they provided Have Mercy On Us, Awesome, It's Better A Dj On 2 Turntables
and of course the Warp Trilogy
Warp 1.9 hit the world like a hurricane
Steve Aoki's 1 2 Whoop Whoop was the signal
some said that this track was the death of electro
but most people loved it

Warp 7.7 was the follow-up
it works well for a remix, not made to create chaos like its brother 1.9

Warp 1977 is the last of the trilogy
the young brother and the best
this remake with guitar riff and Rifo's vocals is just crazy

well, this album would be half good without it's lets-call-them-mellow moments
tracks like Mother, Little Stars, House N* 84
and of course the standout Second Streets Have No Name
give this record a different pop dimension and some space for the bangers to hit you

i don't need to write anything else, just

Favourite Albums Of 2009 #4

The Boy - Please Make Me Dance

when this album came out,i just couldn't stop listening to it
16 tracks,with no pause between them,and The Boy playing keys and percussion and singing simultaneously
we are lucky to have had the chances of watching him live several times
he is one of the most devoted and true artists that i have recently heard
every word that comes out of his mouth makes you understand what he wants to tell you
you should definitely check it out,this is a record that not only affects your ears,but your personality as well

Favorite Albums Of 2009 #5

Fuck Buttons - Tarot Sport
i must admit that i never got into fuck buttons first album, Street Horrrsing
too noise for my taste, something that kinda changed in this second lp
it's less avant-garde noise / it's more pop
which ain't a bad thing at all since with the term "pop" i'm talking about
the structure of their songs, the climax, the melodies

Surf Solar,
the opener, is my favorite track of the year by farrr
as a conclusion i could say that this masterpiece is the definition of music
you know, it's all about feeling something when you hear it

the same thing applies to the rest of the album

The Lisbon Maru could be the lost "dance" anthem of Mayas
it starts with this primitive rythm under these entrancing sounds
till the explosion when this track changes to something from outer space

Olympians is another standout track straight from ancient greece
with captivating "rythm section" and magnificent melodies

there are no vocals here, the music sings for herself
after all, it's all about the melodies

Their Year In Lists: Favourite 10 from The Callas

Apart from being one of the best bands in the local, Athens indie scene, The Callas have also got the greatest taste in music! Here are their favourite albums for 2k9:

Neils Children - X. enc.

Victorian English Gentlemens Club - Love On An Oil Rig

Hatcham Social - You Dig The Tunnel, I'll Hide The Soil

Wavves - Wavvves

Sic Alps – A Long Way Around To A Shortcut

The Pains Of Being Pure At Heart - The Pains Of Being Pure At Heart

Sonic Youth – The Eternal

The Horrors – Primary Colours

Let's Wrestle - In the Court of the Wrestling Let's

So Cow - So Cow

VIDEO:: The Bloody Beetroots - Mystery Meat Remix

Bloody Beetroots is not an ordinary live electro act
they are pure madness
with their latest great EP out,"Christmas Vendetta ... Spares Of Romborama",featuring their remix on All Leather's "Mystery Meat",there came this video
it just drove me crazy
fucking madness

AUDIOCLOSET #3: Filthy Dukes

this AudioCloset is about a mini mix from the Filthy Dukes,presented on Annie Mac's radio show
they managed to squeeze 27 tracks into 5 minutes,something that i couldn't really believe before
i mean,you can mix as many tracks as you want in a limited amount of time,but the result isn't likely to be something good,unless you're a genius
but this mix is really interesting
i listened to it 3 or 4 times in a row,after the first listen
give it a try

Favorite Albums Of 2009 #6

Animal Collective - Merriweather Post Pavilion

this is without a doubt the year of animal collective
is this their best album or the most overrated album of the year?
it doesn't really matter

"I don't mean to seem like I

Care about material things,
Like a social status,
I just want
Four walls and adobe slats
For my girls"

this album is build by a giant wall of sounds full of emotions
the melodies of their voices are contagious
if you're not convinced about this album or this band check their latest ep
their track What Would I Want? Sky is the perfect explanation about all this late hype
after a great amount of brilliant albums like Feels

ps.Summertime Clothes is the perfect summer song for a cold winter

Favourite Albums Of 2009 #7

Kap Bambino - Blacklist

they amazed us with their debut album,we saw them live smashing everything up,and the second album "Blacklist" came like a dynamite
it may not be included in many lists,but we think that it's pure gold that hasn't been discovered yet
12 awesome tracks in one album is not an easy thing to achieve
they may be influenced by the "Crystal Castles movement",but they have managed to create their own sound
her vocals can be addictive,combined with the strong background loops
and it is a band that you MUST see live,we still remember that we almost lost our ears that night

Favourite Albums Of 2009 #8

The Flaming Lips - Embryonic

when you're a genius,there's no way you won't do something right
these guys,with decades of experience with the band,haven't lost it yet
this time they tried the psychedelia concept
i don't know how much time it took it for them,or what on earth they were thinking,but "Embryonic" is a masterpiece that will be remembered.
a double record,a real trip from the very first track to the last one,it makes you feel whatever it wants.
it wants you frightened,it's got you frightened
it wants you down,it's got you down
it wants you thinking,it's got you thinking.
as simple as that

as all great records are depending on the producer's role,it's Dave Fridmann that created this album as well.
without this production,"Embryonic" would lack on many things.

a masterpiece,i repeat,a masterpiece

Favorite Albums Of 2009: #9

The Callas - The Callas
BloodOnOurShoes' favourite DIY-ists returned this year with one of 2k9's best albums! The sophomore album of the two Ionas brothers, Lakis and Aris, saw them taking a step forward both musically but with the production of the album too, which was a lot more taken care of this time. " The Callas " shows a different side of these two part-time-(ex)supermen, since among anthems like "Lipstick", "Fuck Yr God" and (personal favourite) "Caravaggio Was A Punk Rocker" laid some slower, intimate songs like "Cause Yr Love", "Shy", "My Girl" which you cannot help but fall in love with instantly! As you probably know, we blogged a lot about The Callas this year!Here's what we posted:

Alright! The Callas is definitely the best greek band of all times and they 're difinitely BrokenBeats' s favourite band for today!Well, no...The Callas are possibly in the top 5 of BrokenBeats's favourite bands..Their 7 inch vinyl for their absolutely amazing -its like complete mayhem of dancing everytime they perform that live!- track Lipstick, is now available in the only serious record store in Athens, Vinyl Microstore!

Peaches - I Feel Cream

when you have friends like Soulwax, Simian Mobile Disco, Digitalism, Gonzales, Drums of Death
you should ask them to help you
that's what Merrill Beth Nisker did
talk to me, i feel cream, lose you
all these are A/N/T/H/E/M/S
and the whole record is captivating

best album of peaches for me
ps. the more soulwax the better for everyone

Favorite Albums Of 2009 #11

Simian Mobile Disco - Temporary Pleasure

we discussed a lot about them before this album,and finally it was worth the effort
a pure masterpiece,different from their previous release "Attack Decay Sustain Release"
whoever wants to start making electronic music must listen to this album first
it is like a tutorial about the little details that turn a track into an anthem
they chosed to feature vocals from other artists on this album,and they produced each track in a way that it fits perfectly with the whole concept
afterall,they're the masters of acid house,right?

Girls - Album

Come On Come On Come On And Dance With Me
Sometimes You Just Gotta Make It For Yourself

naive indie pop from 2 california guys writing songs about
their life, their friends, their boyfriends/girlfriends,their female friends,whatever
strange but somehow they are different from your ordinary indiepop band
you can feel some beach boys rocknroll here on Big Bad Mean Mother Fucker
some nostalgic melancholy of Hellhole Ratrace and Lauren Marie

true and beautiful

Favorite Albums Of 2009 #13

Boys Noize - Power

it's the second album from Alex Rhida aka Boys Noize
expectations were really high since Oi Oi Oi was a magnificent record
from the sci-fi opener of Gax to the dreamy end of Heart Attack
this is a really great record

the first time i heard Jeffer and Transmission i freaked out
it was the melodies that really got me
you are hypnotised and you just dance with closed eyes
even if there are some mediorce tracks here, they are here for some reason
3/4 of this record screams GeniouS

just listen to Jeffer really loud and you'll understand
and then...

Yeah Yeah Yeahs - It's Blitz!
it's still 2009, 2 years after the 80smania that 2007 was
blame the klaxons and nurave for all that things that followed
everyone, and i do mean e - v - e - r - y - o -n - e
was so nostalgic about a decade that passed
even if he was 8 years old by the time that nirvana came...
glowsticks,fluo clothes and everything that 80s was for the music lifestyle

forget art star, date with the knight, forget even phenomena
this is all about the synths that we never partied to on their time
this is all about "i hear that you and your band have sold your guitars and bought turntables"
forget stupid-bitch-boys + no-good-dick-girls
this is all about heads rolling on the floor
yeh, this is an almost 80s record
but since it's a dull life, it's a dark place
this is wonderful

Deadmau5 - For Lack Of A Better Name

a real electro banger,where all the tracks are mixed so perfectly that you can't understand the changes.
he released 2 albums this year,the other one was called "Randon Album Title" and we somehow weren't into it,as opposed to this one.
this one is brilliant,"Hi Friend" can only convince you about its value.
from electro to house and techno,he throws in the tracks with his own way and that makes him one of the best today's producers,along with Boys Noize

FRESH: Late Of The Pier New Single - "Blueberry"

Fever Ray - Fever Ray

Fever Ray was this year's surprise,Karin Dreijer Andersson of the excellent electronic duo we all are aware of,The Knife.
an album which you can listen with the lights off,kind of loud,and mind-travel.
it sounds weird but you should try it.
its concept is really interesting,with dark basslines,atmospheric vocals and a very clever production approach.
you can feel every second of its songs,they can even make you taste fear.

this is what we wrote back in February:
"Her name is Karin Dreijer Andersson and she's the first half of The Knife. We learned this project "Fever Ray" from her first single If I Had A Heart which came out on last December. When I Grow Up is her second single off her debut album coming out on March 18th 2009 by Rabid Records in Sweden. Her music explores even more paths than what she did with The Knife. This time the arty direction of the project is even more visible with these two amazing videos. They are like two nightmares on the same night.The video for ‘If I Had A Heart’ was directed by Andreas Nilsson. The future is yours Karin."

When I Grow Up from Fever Ray on Vimeo.

ALBUM:: The Bloody Beetroots - Christmas Vendetta...Spares of Romborama EP

the most hot name for 2009
after their awesome album,"Romborama",after doing several remixes,including some of their tracks,they're back with an EP.
we posted their new anthem,"Warp 1977",the opening track for their EP.
it includes 2 more great remixes,"Talking In My Sleep" and "Mystery Meat",you don't wanna miss this.
Bloody Beetroots are not giving up,they are probably working all day and they are planning to drive us all crazy.

The Bloody Beetroots - Romborama from Dim Mak on Vimeo.

FRESH:: Crookers, Jackson Glass

this is about 2 new tracks.
some acid house and disco tunes are always interesting.

1.Crookers feat. Soulwax & Mixhell - We Love Animals: Although i was not into the Crookers album,their new track really got me.A crazy intro leading into acid house/electro with great sounds.Of course Soulwax couldn't stay out of this,i wonder if these guys have done something that is just not good,they're the masters.Excellent work,a true banger.

2.Jackson Glass - Pole Dancer: A nu-disco tune.This kind of movement is still alive,at some level it is transformed into disco classics,and for those of you who are denying it,i bet you all danced into Aeroplane's remix on Sebastian Tellier's "Kilometer".If you loved it,then you will surely love this one.

to be honest,i didn't even realise how fast this year was.

it reminds me of my early years,loving it.

The Thermals - Now We Can See
The Thermals did it again!They released a record that made Broken Beats' life interesting again. "Now We Can See" sees The Thermals taking a slight turn from their rough-lo-fi/indie-punk classical direction in order to explore some "poppier" fields. The results are awesome and as their 2004 sophomore album was called, "Fuckin A"!
Check out this previous post about The Thermals:

Alright!Here 's something for anyone who wants to rock out today(or tonight..).Thermals might not be the newest and hottest band around right now (they 've released 3 albums and their 4th will be out in March i think..) but they 're just too good to not have a "Track Of The Day" in our blog. "I Let It Go" is one of their best tracks up to date!
It fits totally to a fucked up day, when you just cant get anything right and you ' re 100% pissed off..This calms you down a bit..

AUDIOCLOSET #2: The Cloud I'm Under

this is about a man that has sent us plenty of his stuff,including EPs,tracks,probably whatever he's created so far,but we weren't able to check it all out till now.
we will share with you 3 of them for now,it's really hard to choose between the whole stuff.
he hails from beautiful New York and keeps a low profile,as you can't find information about him anywhere,not even on his site.
i would say it is a combination of low-fi electronica and indie folk,that spreads out a really true emotion.
"Dim The Lights" and "Saturdays Are Better Without You" could easily be the new Julian Casablancas songs,that would stand out in his album.They have a dirty taste and a nice beat that makes them special and maybe addictive.
While "Where Are My Friends Now" is a pure diy masterpiece that makes you fall in love with it especially because of its great lyrics,he really means every word that he sings.
We hope he can make it and record more stuff,which we will surely post.

Hostage - Valhalla

a crazy mix of dubstep,dance and electro and a trumpet sound as if you're living a war.
it can easily be a soundtrack for a slow-motion war scene.
a perfect track to drop your set from electro-bangers to dubstep.
Hostage is a hot name for 2009,and he has not lost his reputation like some other djs did,it can be seen from his new EP,featuring this track.
hope to see more from him,i'm totally into his stuff until now.

share the headphones:

AUDIOCLOSET #1: Hey Today!

this is our new blog-category and we named it "AudioCloset".
it is about the stuff you send us,which we will post regularly.

due to the fact that we don't have plenty of time,throughout the week we spend many hours working on stuff with our band,we can't check out all the stuff that we receive.
but sooner or later,we come up and listen to almost everything,we don't ignore not a single email from you.

so keep sending us tracks,mixes and links!

now,we got sent this mix from the electro duo called "Hey Today!",and we're really digging it.
last summer their acclaimed release "Walk Through" was on Kitsune.
this mix is about 1 hour of electro bangers,featuring the likes of Boys Noize, Late of the Pier and Digitalism.
some really nice changes,loops,it sure is a professional mix
plus that i have to say that it can be up-to-date,good work.

thanx to Alice for contacting us.

Bombay Bicycle Club - I Had The Blues But I Shook Them Loose

BBC , after playing the Reading and Leeds festivals for 3 years in a row, finally released their debut album back in July. Miserable vocals, pumped up bass and some excellent indie-pop/rock mood composed BBC's debut that will definitely keep them on the top acts for 2010.
Here is what we posted about BBC back in March:

BBC have been around for far too long but it was just yesterday that Broken Beats decided to listen to them with the appropriate mood and that is not to slag them off ..They 're not such a bad band as they appeared to be in the beginning.. Actually, they make decent childish/indie /rock which is one of Broken Beats's favourite genres.. Artrocker magazine seems to like them too and that's definitely important for an up and coming band like BBC and for Broken Beats to like a band..

NEW TRACK-->>> Portishead - Chase The Tear

the Mercury Award winning trio is back.
the song is called "Chase The Tear" and it's the follow-up of last year's Third.
a repetitive driving bassline and those dry beats create an excellent atmosphere.
Beth's vocals is the main thing,matching perfectly with the nature of the song.
starting with a sound that transfers you directly into your nightmare,and next thing you know when the beat comes in,you picture yourself trying to hide from someone or something,or "chasing the tear".
or something like that after all.
turn the volume up,lean back and enjoy.

Shrag - Shrag
Brighton's Shrag came out with one of 2009's freshest indie/pop/post-punk records. "Shrag" was released back in March, it got a 7.4 from Pitchfork and since then Shrag have been touring around Europe with Crystal Stilts, The Pains Of Being Pure At Heart and their friends The Cribs. Mission accomplised then!
Here's what we posted about Shrag back in February:

So its saturday afternoon and you 're still looking for the perfect soundtrack of the day..Well, here 's a suggestion for you.
Their name is Shrag and they hail from Brighton,UK. Their music sounds a lot like Love Is All (without the saxophone madness of course..) but a little a bit less punked up..If you 're still not aware of the brilliance of Love Is All, another band/genre that you could say they 're very similar to is the whole riot girrrl thing(except for that whole attitude those bands had) ...
They 've got a lot of slow songs too,something that would probably suck under any other circumstances but in this case is just impossible not to like!

The Cribs - Ignore The Ignorant
The Cribs, now a 4-piece, were back this year with their 4th album, Ignore The Ignorant. The album sees the Jarmans taking a big step forward with the help of Johnny Marr (The Smiths, Modest Mouse) and his excellent guitar playing. Ryan(frontman of The Cribs) is still the coolest bump in rock 'n roll and Gary and Ross seem to be ok with new indi-er and more mature direction of the band. Everything is in its place then. Long live The Cribs!
