Stream the new Com Truise : Galactic Melt !

Com Truise is the brain-child of New Jersey producer and designer, Seth Haley. Admittedly obsesessed with synthesizers, Com Truise makes slo-mo mid-fi synth-wave and has been creating music for over a decade under several different monikers. His new album, Galactic Melt, was released for digital downloads June 14th and for those who like to have something in their hands, a physical copy of the album will be available July 5. Have a listen to this neon lazer beam face melt synth heavy masterpiece!

New Twin Sister – “Bad Street”

I remember when I wrote my very first music post for Sorry Darlin way back in April 2010. Yeah it’s definitely been over a year since I’ve been with my lovely lady comrades and updating you with fun music. Time flies when you’re having fun! If you’ve been keeping up with my posts all this time then you deserve a big ol’ high-five!! So yeah, back to my first post…I wrote about a band called Twin Sister (click to read the post). Well, they are back with a brand new track called “Bad Street” and I love it. Bad Street is the first single from their new album to be released late September. Have a listen below!

Gang Gang Dance : Eye Contact

Hey Darlin’s, it’s Taradactyl here to tell you about a new music release that is totally worth spending your hard earned money for. On May 10th, Manhattan’s Gang Gang Dance released their fifth studio release, Eye Contact.

Gang Gang Dance is experimental music at it’s finest, that features synthesized electronics, percussion and the unique vocal stylings of Lizzi Bougatsos. They are on 4AD Records, which houses some pretty big names such as Scott Walker, Iron and Wine, and Atlanta’s own Deerhunter, just to name a few. 4AD describes Gang Gang Dance as “sounding like a mutant melting pot for the likes of Timbaland, The Pop Group, AR Rahman and elements the UK underground (collaborating with Tinchy Stryder for the avant-grime of ‘Princes’), Saint Dymphna cement their status as one of the most essential and influential acts of their generation.”

I highly recommend this and other Gang Gang Dance albums, and if they come anywhere near Atlanta, they are an absolute must see live show.

Below is a live session video from Gang Gang Dance’s record label 4AD of the tune “Chinese High,” off of their new album “Eye Contact.”

Meet you on the dancefloor…

EXCERPT PROVIDED BY MINCHY MINCH:
“I really like The Shelter because they have mini carousel horses in the middle of the dance floor you can ride for a quarter! Think about it. For your typical $4 well drink, you could have 16 amazing dance floor horse rides!Where else can you find that, my friend? I secretly plan on going there sometime with a bottle of super glue and a handful of magical horns, and transforming the carousel horses into UNICORN carousel horses. Can you even imagine the beauty? The Shelter could then raise prices as high as 50c a ride. The Shelter would become incredibly rich and powerful. I would be honored for incredible income generated from the UNICORN CAROUSEL RIDE and perhaps The Shelter would even create a Sarah Mincher carousel ride in gratitude. I would charge at least $1 a ride. I become incredibly rich and powerful. I become Atlantas Oprah. Tara is my Gayle. I shall start this plan on Friday.

Okay hope to see you there!! XO SARAH MINCHER “

…Right Minchy. I’ll definitely be there! – Taradactyl
