Well, ive been discovering quite a lot of new music during this Spring Break, and i'd love to talk about them all, but it would be annoying to make back-to-back posts. For me, for you and for the rest of the team.
So, ill write about most of them, on this post!
First of all, Van She.
This australian quartet has been making sucess with their hit, Kelly. And with the names that remixed it, it could only get better. As far as I know, Lifelike, M83, Cut Copy, Alan Braxe & Fred Falke and Breakbot have remixed this. Damn good group.
For today, M83. This french group takes a different poppy and happy vibe of the original to turn it into something very melodic.
Using various synths, guitars, pianos, and so on, they turn the dial down to 5, for a nice chill track, that is exactly what a remix should be. Different. Oh, Kelly.

Next up is Heads We Dance. They have been posted about recently, so i wont go into much detail about them.
This track is a cover they did for the Buffetlibre Rewind 2 project. Its a cover of Kraftwerk's Computer Love.
Very bassy, its also a relaxing track, with smooth synths and simple vocals, just like the original.
Its also available on their Myspace for free, but heck, here's easier.

Now, Pony Pony Run Run.
And now you wonder "Who?". Thats what i did when i received this on my Last.fm some time ago.
They were a 5-man (4 now, one of them left) French band, that began in 2004, and are creating an album as we speak, that due to be released on June 15th.
This track is called, "Hey You", which was also released not long ago.
With captivating vocals, it uses a high pitched synth and a keyboard to do some "bleep-blop" sounds, along with the usual guitar and bass. Kinda reminds of Phoenix, but in a different level.

To finish it off, You Love Her Coz She's Dead. Sadistic little name, eh?
This british duo are signed with Kitsuné, one of the best labels right now, and released their debut EP, last year.
Many people say that they are a copy of Crystal Castles, but these guys, i can actually stand listening. Most Crystal Castles tracks are a clusterfuck of sounds, that doesnt really seem to go anywhere, and lets face it, Alice Glass has the singing abilities of a brick.
Moving on, this track is called "Superheroes", which is YLHCSD's main theme.
Beginning with a 8-bit sound pitching up, it immediately explodes on your face with a massive beat, and using other synths, the vocals just fit in pefectly. I just dont like the fact that its too short, under 3 minutes.
