Sunday Ramblings & Considerations: Memorial Day Weekend Edition

It’s an abbreviated edition today, as we’re enjoying the long weekend.  Enjoy Curxes and this week’s considerations.

On the Radar: Curxes

Macaulay Hopwood and Roberta Fidora are Curxes (pronounced Curses). The duo is based out of Brighton (UK), and draw influence from the likes of Depeche Mode, Yazoo, and the Pet Shop Boys. The pair revive the synth wave genre well, and Fidora stands out as a vocalist. The two met while part of the band Holdfast, and are now working steadily to release recordings.

Earlier this year they released the single, Constructor. Look for Creatures b/w Jaws on June 10.

Check out: Creatures

Check out: Jaws

Check out: Constructor

You can purchase Constructor and eventually Creatures/Jaws on Itunes.

Consider These:

–Paul McCartney explains why the Stones dubbed the Beatles, “The four-headed monster.”

–Dylan did heroin?  Apparently so

Hidden Behind the Shed captures Aussie neo-psychedelic band Tame Impala on KEXP (4.22.11).

–Big Ugly Yellow Couch has a cool session with Philly band, Creepoid.
