Tour Announcement : Goldfrapp

I almost always love a sideshow more than a festival.

Alison Goldfrapp and Will Gregory will be in Australia in a few weeks for the Fuzzy Parklife tour, and have just announced their Sydney and Melbourne sideshows.

Black Cherry and Supernature were both on high rotation at my house when they were released, and while I haven't gotten quite as into Seventh Tree I'm sure that it will still be an amazing live show, particularly given that it's been 5 years since they were last out here.

Goldfrapp will play The Palais Theatre in Melbourne and The Concert Hall at the Sydney Opera House.

Tickets go on sale 28 August from Sydney Opera House (Sydney show) or Ticketmaster (Melbourne)

The Presets : Free Mixtape

The Presets are offering a free download of their new mixtape
"G E T O F F T G E B E A C H".

Described by Modular as "one loopy, tripped out summer vacation you wish you were on, veering from the bendy early synth work of Raymond Scott to the politico-funk of Public Enemy to the twisted techno of Aphex Twin and Compuphonic and Kolombo with a polite dash of Sepultura thrown in for good measure."

Want it?

Keytar jammin' with MC Hammer

MC Hammer returns to TV, in these new promos from ESPN for Monday night football.

While I've never dreamt about jamming with Hammer, I did dream about owning an iPhone last night... I was so disappointed upon waking - which is just how I imagine the guy in this promo felt when he realised that he didn't actually own that incredible blue jacket.

ps. I love that Hammer still wears parachute pants! He just wouldn't be Hammer without them.
