Joe Goddard ft. Mara Carlyle : She Burns

It’s nearly a year since the most recent Hot Chip album In Our Heads was released, so you can bet your life the band’s workaholic members already have a bunch of new material ready; Alexis Taylor’s About Group are putting out their third album next month, New Build are already debuting songs for possible inclusion on their sophomore LP and sometime in the not too distant future DFA Records and Greco-Roman will jointly release a new EP, Taking Over, from Joe Goddard. Featuring vocals from Brit singer-songwriter Mara Carlyle, that release’s 8-minute lead track “She Burns” morphs from slow-building torch song to slinky house banger before taking a strange turn in its second half towards War Of The Worlds-style prog-techno, with Goddard’s FX-laden synths conjuring up images of Carlyle crooning calmly as aliens lay waste to everything around her; listen below.

My name is Michael Dix; I'm a decade or so past being down with the kids, but to me new music never gets old. Apparently I like music that sounds like faulty kitchen appliances and ritual slaughter; really I just like what I like, whether that happens to be indie, pop, punk, hip hop, metal, electronica, Afrobeat or jazz. Follow me on Twitter @FoamHandsBlog to receive notifications of new posts and the occasional random brain-fart, and please share links wherever you can. Enjoy!
