Moon’s Song of the Week: Faster Horses by MNDR

Moon’s bringing you a bit of electro today. Faster Horses is the new single from American electro duo, MNDR and it’s pretty much exactly the kind of music you need on a Friday. While it really needs a big sound system to do it justice, it still has a fantastic feel to it on my puny speakers. I just love the way it breaks down half way through.

Faster Horses is out now.

Moon’s Song of the Week: Copy of Copy by Himuro

I know next to nothing about Himuro, I stumbled upon this track in a stack of old songs that I picked up a few years back and it’s pretty much my only exposure to his(?) work. If my wikipedia skills are on form them he’s this guy, in which case he’s worked on Final Fantasy, raised a butt load of money for charity and is huge in Japan.

What I do know is that Copy of Copy is a fantastically scrappy bit of eastern electro with a beat that reminds me of some of Dan Le Sac’s best. If you like your music choppy, fun and upbeat then you should dig this track.

Moon’s Song of the Week: No Diggity by Chet Faker

I actually scheduled this back on Monday as I’m in Barcelona right now watching F1 cars drive in elaborate circles. With that in mind I apologise if anything radically meaningful has been release music wise that I’ve missed in the last few days.

That said, there can’t be many new tracks that are as worth posting as this gem from Australian Electo artist, Chet Faker. A cover of Dr Dre & Blackstreet’s 1996 hit, No Diggity, that somehow manages to not disappoint. Chet’s voice is soulful and the backing track, haunting. It’s a perfect combination and the best bit is that you can download it for free from HERE.

Moon’s Song of the Week – The Fruity Track by Lemon Jelly

 

Moon’s had me dredging the vaults today in search of a track that would help keep that summer spirit alive as the temperatures dip over the weekend. This is one of two fantastic B-Sides (I may post the other one someday if I can find a good quality upload of it) to feature on Lemon Jelly’s 2004 single, Stay With You. It’s based around a sample of a well known song, but you probably won’t guess which song until close to the end, an element that adds a tonne of fun to an already great summer track.

While we didn’t know it at the time, this would end up being one of the last songs the band ever released as, shortly after it came out, the London duo announced that they were going on indefinite hiatus. A sign on the band’s website simply reads “Not Dead, But Sleeping.”

May they awaken soon.
