WhoMadeWho Circle remix MP3 & updated U.S. tour dates
by Bill Pearis
They played our SXSW kickoff party last year & pretty much stole the show. I wrote then:
Looking like a cross between Sparks and Yello (at Octoberfest) and sounding like some kind of synth funk you'd hear from Bizarro World DFA Records, they were weird and awesome and won the initially-perplexed crowd over quickly.
The band have signed to Kompact who will release their new album, Knee Deep, in April. The album (they're calling it a mini-LP but at 43 minutes it seems like a long player to me) is a bit darker, and has a general paranoid vibe to it. You can download the Circle Remix of "Every Minute Alone" (Knee Deep's lead single) at the top of this post. They are seriously awesome live, don't miss them. Dates below...
