James Delay is an emerging electronic music artist out of London England whose debut on Russell Club Records is most likely making steady electronic pulses through the digital ether as we speak. His music is calm calculated and powerful like an unconscious force moving the energy of the world across the grid lines of our cities. The music builds and creeps, like a slow rising tide or stream of clouds rolling by, influencing your perception whether you realize it or not. It’s like a new emergent property, slowly assembling itself out of the bits and pieces of our electronic world, coming together, forming something new and powerful. And deep inside the heart of the machine there’s something very smart and very aware that knows exactly what it’s doing.

“Get your Filthy Dukes off me!”, she cried before screaming and dashing out of the dark pulsing London nightclub. Funny scene huh, happens ALL THE TIME!
What’s with all the electronic music on the Song of the Day blog? This doesn’t sound like indie music, it’s like I’m in a Nintendo game from the 80′s or something? Which makes me wonder, did they have Nintendo in England in 1985 too? The guys from Filthy Dukes probably did, damn dirty remixers.
New digitalism, Eleven Tigers blends elements from all electronic genres into a psychedelic kaleidescope that keeps on giving. Jokubas Dargis a Lithuanian now living in London is responsible for all this madness.

Out of being in a massive hurry today to throw up this song and get going on other projects, I thought it would be fun to just copy and paste some of the text from The Big Pink’s Wikipedia page. I even copied their photo for the band! Man, my originality is stunning. But I must say I really love the big power sound of this song, it’s not necessarily loud and doesn’t contain the big vibrant base that makes it seem like the earth is shaking from an earthquake with things breaking everywhere, but it’s big and can easily be an anthem to many people. I wonder what girls think of it when I guy says “These girls fall like Dominos”.
Here’s the Wiki intro…
Robbie Furze and Milo Cordell started making music as The Big Pink in 2007, taking their name from the debut album by The Band. Furze used to play guitar for Alec Empire and run the record label Hate Channel with Cordell. Cordell (son of Denny Cordell and brother of Tarka Cordell) had also been releasing records through his own label Merok Records, which featured early noise rock releases by Klaxons, Titus Andronicus, and Crystal Castles. After joining forces in mid-2007, the band issued their first single “Too Young to Love” on 7″ vinyl in October 2008 on the House Anxiety label. The single was limited to 500 copies worldwide, and features a homoerotic photograph by Dennis Cooper as its cover. Similarly, a limited edition 12″ single for “Too Young to Love” released only in Japan features more of Cooper’s photography as its cover. Read the rest of this entry »
Even though his music videos seem old, his first album Matinée came out in 2007, and his second album, Everything Is New was released in 2009 with this song. Another song of his you should check out is Tonight’s Today.

There’s just something provocative about two people making out. But 10 people all making out with each other, all while watching in the same room??!! That’s a canker sore of a different color! But maybe it’s not so bad when you’re just doing it with all of your band groupies that have gone to every one of your shows for the last 4 years and with whom you’ve already had several drunken orgies, some of which were at that very same bar. Well, that’s life I guess. (or the life of a band from London I should say). Ok, ok, so I take it back, they haven’t had drunken orgies with each other. (or have they!!!???… jk)
Seriously though, you’ve got to respect these guys for putting out some quite titillating and provocative art here. It’s quite romantic in an interpretive modern dance kind of way but a bit more young and wild. They could have added some tooth brushing to really illustrate the
name of the song, but I think that would have been way too campy.
The song itself is beautiful, well produced, and reminds me of some light mix of IZ, Jack Johnson, and a slew of singer song writer vocalists who talk softly into the microphone.
The Maccabees are not to be confused with the Jewish rebel army that took control of Israeli land long ago. (But I’m sure that would also make for an interesting music video.) They grew from tiny seeds in the fertile soil of London proper in 2005 to become the most popular band in the world headlining shows on tour with Michael Jackson, Prince, Opera, and The Beatles. (oh crap I’ve gotta stop this, here’s my official apology to the Maccabees, “sorry The Maccabees for being super sarcastic and ridiculous on the one day when I happen to be posting your songs. You’re a great band and will go far in life and sell tons of albums and do other things that will make you feel fulfilled”. Damn.)
Anyways, so these guys are good, check ‘em out. Here’s how to get more of this sweet sweet nectar that one might call “The Maccabees”.
