Shame has a new album out! They accompanied the new track with a video directed by Maxim Kelly. The clip, which repurposes archival footage from old research centres on the development of children, uses deepfake technology, the babies start to lip sync along with the song, while the band cameo as scientists. https://bit.ly/3jOWW8z Watch it here: https://youtu.be/LcE3rsUw3AE https://shame.world/

SONG 2
by Blur
(114 plays) | (1 fan)

"Song 2" was intended to be a joke on the record company. A slower, acoustic demo of the song was recorded featuring the distinctive "woo-hoo" chorus in whistle form. They then sped it up and performed it very loudly, with a deliberately amateurish guitar sound. From there, the band told the record company that they wanted to release the song as a single to "blow the ... labels' heads off". To their surprise, record executives reacted positively. https://bit.ly/37G37He

The song features a drum break from the song "Johnny the Fox Meets Jimmy the Weed" by Thin Lizzy. The whiplashing sword sound effect is a sample of the song "Da Mystery of Chessboxin", by Wu-Tang Clan.

The music video for "Daft Punk Is Playing at My House" is an homage to Spike Jonze's and Michel Gondry's music videos for Daft Punk's "Da Funk" and "Around the World". Watch the video here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Cj8JrQ9w5jY&ab_channel=LCDSoundsystem

The singer on this track is New Jersey-born house producer Anthony Moore (aka Romanthony), whose vocals were heavily Auto-Tuned and compressed. Daft Punk's Thomas Bangalter said: "A lot of people complain about musicians using Auto-Tune. It reminds me of the late '70s when musicians in France tried to ban the synthesizer... What they didn't see was that you could use those tools in a new way instead of just for replacing the instruments that came before." https://bit.ly/3mcH3cr

This is the ONLY song produced by French house band Stardust, a joint effort combining the talents of Daft Punk's Thomas Bangalter with Alan Braxe, and vocalist Benjamin Diamond.

Samantha Poulter told NME, “The thing I remember most about making this track was the desire to be moving. It was peak lockdown and all I wanted was to have that feeling like I was going somewhere. I wanted to escape.” https://bit.ly/3aMefUQ

Austra is the project of Electronic artist Katie Stelmanis. She told CBC of the release, “I was kind of worried it wouldn’t be something that people would be interested in, or connect to... [but it’s] become more relevant than I could’ve ever imagined.” https://bit.ly/3kiz0KK
