Best New Music – Breeze / Dolls

You know it’s going to be a good day when a track lands in your inbox first thing.

Here’s the new track by Breeze, the dream-pop side project of the slightly rougher, My-Bloody-Valentine-ier Beliefs (who you will be shocked to know I have written about before, I know.)

Anyway, Josh Korody and co. have outdone themselves on this new track. Check it out below.

Make sure you hold on for the break and outro. It’s insane. I cannot stress enough how great this track is.

Arts & Crafts ‘X’ Track list arrives… and I’m a little disappointed

At last, we have the final track list–I think–for Arts & Crafts’ neato-burrito collaborations disc, ‘X.’

1. Broken Social Scene x Years – “Day Of The Kid”
2. Apostle Of Hustle x Zeus – “Bizarre Love Triangle” (New Order cover)
3. Feist x Timber Timbre – “Homage”
4. Still Life Still x Zulu Winter – “Era”
5. The Hidden Cameras x Snowblink – “The Chauffeur” (Duran Duran cover)
6. The Darcys x Ra Ra Riot – “Time Can Be Overcome” (Constantines cover)
7. Chilly Gonzales x Stars – “Nothing Good Comes To Those Who Wait”
8. Hayden x Jason Collett – “Lonely Is As Lonely Does”
9. Gold & Youth x Trust – “Lady Bird”
10. Amy Millan x Dan Mangan – “Chances Are” (Johnny Mathis & Liza Minnelli cover)

Short take… I don’t know, guys. There’s not a lot of genre crossover here, and though it’ll be neat to hear Apostle of Hustle run through a New Order cover backed up by Zeus, unless they’ve done some serious work with the pacing of this, it’s basically guaranteed to be a stilted, difficult listen.

Exception: The Darcy’s & Ra Ra Riot doing a Constantines cover. That is a match made in heaven.
