Muscles is my new favorite artist thanks to recent spins on Whothehell.net and Kiss Atlanta. And judging from Hype Machine I am totally late on this game. You know you’re late when Fluxblog has hit a band not once but twice. AND I don’t know how I missed Muscles the first three times Fluokids posted, but I digress…

Ice Cream makes everything better as this track is proof of that. I don’t know why all songs about Ice Cream are good… but they are. Remember that because it is one of those totally amazing random facts that will save you on Jeopardy one day.

Muscles rises about the typical indie pop fanfare… and well… proof:

Muscles – “Ice Cream” (mp3)

So if the track doesn’t totally perk your ears like it should then this should definitely get your attention — Muscles has a record coming out on Bang Gang 12″ with remixes by Bag Raiders and Van She Tech.

Oh. And total extra bonus points for calling himself post-Electroclash and not New Rave because really that is what we’re all living through right now.

    He's awesome fun live, totally unpretentious.

    Often performs draped in fairy lights, with his own portable strobes and whatever set up too.

    Interestingly enough someone related this to the cronulla riots the other day on radio.

    Linking in the indescision to fight with the people surrounding the incidents basically a commentary on the spectator.
