It’s been a while. There are two reasons for this. One is that I’ve been working on A LOT of new music. The second is that this blog is getting a complete overhaul soon.
ANYWHO… I have an EP hitting the internetwaves next week. I’m calling it a ‘wordless’ EP because even though there are no lead vocals on any of the tracks, there is a lot of my singing. It’s a short collection past remixes without their lead vocals and a couple of new original tunes. It’s called Epic & Blues.
It’s no excuse, but we’ve been Metronomy-touring for the last few weeks. Threw this up on New Year’s Day. First original tune I’ve put out there in a little while, but there will be a whole bunch more this year.
It got some love on Okayafrica today, which I’m super-excited about ’cause Okayafrica and the whole Okayplayer camp have a take on music that’s best referred to as DOPE.
The site’s blacked out today as part of the online protest against the Stop Online Piracy Act in the US, but I’d click on the image above anyway to find out just why SOPA’s attracting so much fuss.

After the NME’s exclusive last week, I’m pleased to say that the mix is now free to the world. Gratis. This is mostly original material. Where it’s not original (Gwen Stefani, Muse, Arcade Fire), hopefully it’s pretty obvious.
A big thanks to my brother Yemi for the cover image. And to EAN for mixing, mastering and being an all-around sensei.
