*One New Track*
James Blake silences the crowd as he supports Everything Everything. ‘The Wilhelm Scream’ is another spellbinding vocal-loop of a track and we can report that this recording is not a fluke. We saw him last night and it was bloody gorgeous.
_James Blake will be released on February 7, 2011 through Atlas / A&M_
Atlanta’s Mane Mane hand the twisted dance rhythms of ‘Skin Fox’ over to Persona La Ave. They turn up the bass to create a 90s R&B indebted track. Out soon on “Triple You Tapes”:http://souuunds.tumblr.com/

Another Christmas, another seasonal song from Sufjan Stevens. Now as connected to December festivities as turkey and tinsel, the Detroit songwriter is celebrating Christmas 2010 with help from the guitar services of Aaron and Bryce Dessner of The National. Fitting, considering Sufjan’s sporadic guest appearances with the band. It’s everything that has come to be expected of these festive recordings – a beautiful mood-setter with an ethereal Sufjan touch. *Rhian Daly*
Hippos In Tanks’ favourite Canadian artist “D’Eon”:http://www.myspace.com/chrispdeon unveils this video for ‘Kill A Man With A Joystick in Your Hand’. Stick with it, it starts off slowly but bursts into a hip wriggling (and political) dance jam.
