Ok, like I know you were just getting used to the rave being over. Perhaps, if you live in the Midwest or in Amish country, you might not know that the rave is over. No worries. Klaxons seem to be spearheading a neo-rave movement of sorts. But don’t think lame ass candy ravers waving glow sticks in your face in some dirty old wharehouses. Think indie-rave: like hot boys in tight jeans with perky synths and guitars. Actually, it all seems more art rock than rave… oh like how ironic: indie boys at the rave. I know, I know. We’ve already traveled down that road. Luckily, the music is so damn good you won’t be worrying about genres, labels or irony.
Klaxons – “Atlantis to Interzone” (mp3)
Modular is on a signing spree. Rumor has it Klaxons signed with Modular in the USA. Of course you already know New Young Pony Club was also recently snatched up by Modular, and they are gearing up to re-release a re-upped version of “Ice Cream” in late July. Seems like Modular is expanding their empire far beyond Australia. They’re the label to watch these days… have they signed anyone who sucks? No.
