New band on Labrador Records! free mp3


Labrador proudly present Sweden's newest band – Pallers. “Humdrum" was produced in Spain with a view over the Mediterranean. During one week of constant sunshine they created the darkest and finest electronic music we’ve heard in a long time. This is dance music for the lazy, the blazers and for the slightly depressed.

"Our heads are flooded after decades of intense listening, and when we create we pour it all out. One leg is always standing in the green grass of pop while the other leg is out on its own, wandering between places such as dancefloors, sandy beaches, cold concrete and a weightless existence in a bed or a hammock." PALLERS

"Humdrum" will be released on 12" vinyl on December 3 backed by a remix by Ultracity, a Pallers Delight Version and the future blazer-favourite "Slow down quickly.

Track list:
A1. Humdrum
A2. Humdrum (Pallers Delight Version)

B1. Slow Down Quickly
B2. Humdrum (Ultracity Epic Remix)

Geike will leave Hooverphonic

Hooverphonic is sad to announce you that Geike will leave the band by the end of 2008.

Alex and Raymond will definitely go on with Hooverphonic!
They are therefore looking for a new singer (male or female).

If you're interested, please send us your updated CV, as well as an MP3 and a recent picture of yourself.

Candidates do not necessarily have to come from Belgium, we are open to cross-border collaborations.

The Killers on Saturday Night Live

I thought they were quite good ( a great music season so far with Lil Wayne and even Duffy. King of Leon make me yawn). A small hiccup when the singer switched mics and the mic wasn't on. I think the music was too polished, but this was a t.v. performance. They played the great new single Human (for the record, I sang along and thought it was "dancer" too):

"Human" is a song by Las Vegas-based alternative rock band The Killers, and was released as the first single from the band's third studio album Day & Age. It began receiving airplay on September 22, with a digital release on September 30.

In an interview with Rolling Stone magazine's Smoking Section, Brandon Flowers described "Human" as "like Johnny Cash meets the Pet Shop Boys" and confessed to not putting it on Sawdust as "it was too good". There have been several mis-conceptions regarding the use and pronunciation of the word "denser" used in the line "Are we human or are we denser?" with many forum users and critics questioning Brandon Flowers' use of the word "dancer".

The Legends "Seconds Away" - free mp3

The Legends "Seconds Away" from Labrador:

"After two years of absence The Legends return with the noisiest pop single to ever come out of Sweden.
”Seconds away” balances perfectly between the unbearable and pure loveliness.

”I need noise now, so this new single sounds like someone drilling a whole in your head. In a pleasant way that is. It’s called "Seconds away" and is about the wonders of tryptizol. The B-side, "Over and over" is actually one of those sad love songs I had promised myself never to write again. But it was out of my hands; life forced me to write it. Sorry about that... Pallers has done a truly wonderful remix of it. It might actually beat the original, which is both a very good thing and slightly depressing at the same time.” Johan [aka The Legends].

"Seconds away" is released on November 5."
