Both Holy Ghost! and Delorean are releasing new albums next week (September 10th to be exact), and both bands thought of week of streaming would whet our appetites. Put aside some time to check 'em out. They're different, yes, but sure as hell worth it.
Holy Ghost!'s sophomore album Dynamics is a strong reminder that the DFA Records name still has strength, despite the disbanding of LCD Soundsystem. Delve into their lush synthpop soundscapes over at Pitchfork Advance.
Delorean, on the other hand, offers a different kind of synth-laden goodness, divulging in airy, summery sounds and ethereal harmonies. It's a strong offering from this Spanish outfit. Stream it here.
Delorean bring another sampling from their upcoming album Apar, the bright and charming "Destitute Time." The song matches the weightless voice of labelmate Glasser with frontman Ekhi Lopetegi's echoing depth, melding the two amidst upbeat, summery instrumentation. I'm sure as hell ready for September 10th to roll around, 'cause I can't wait to hear Apar from beginning to end.
Spanish dance pop outfit Delorean have been a favorite of mine for a long time. Hell, three years later, their third album Subiza still shines bright. That's why my heart skipped a beat when I heard they had announced a follow-up to their fantastic 2010 LP. Titled Apar, the album is out on September 10th in North America and September 9th in Europe. Consider me very freakin' excited.
For an initial taste of what Apar has in store, give the lead single "Spirit" a bite. Frontman Ekhi Lopetegi describes it as their "big production album." After listening to "Spirit," what do you think? I guess we'll find out for sure when September 9th/10th rolls around.
