Simian Mobile Disco’s last album, 2007’s underrated Attack, Decay, Sustain, Release is still on my playlist and gets regular rotation. So when I heard SMD just dropped a new single I was friggin pumped.
The single Audacity of Huge, features Chris Keating from the rad band Yeasayer. The vocals are hilarious and awesome at the same time. I couldn’t help getting goose bumps while laughing. The song is still stuck in my head 8 hours later so I had to blog about it.
The new album, Temporary Pleasure is set to drop on August 17th(My Birthday!) and will undoubtedly be in every DJ’s crate. If you hadn’t heard of SMD after Attack, Decay, Sustain, Release, you definitely will after Temporary Pleasure.
The reported track list looks to be laden with righteous cameos:
01. Cream Dream (feat. Gruff Rhys) [Super Furry Animals / Neon Neon]
02. Simian Mobile Disco – Audacity of Huge (feat. Chris Keating)
03. 10000 Horses Can’t Be Wrong
04. Cruel Intentions (feat. Beth Ditto) [Gossip lead singer]
05. Off The Map (feat. Jamie Lidell) [Super Collider lead singer]
07. Bad Blood (feat. Alexis Taylor) [Hot Chip lead singer]
