The Hundred in the Hands
The Hundred in the Hands
We came together when we bonded playing one another tracks in a van. We were driving across the U.S. listening to Moroder/Molton style disco; French House & minimal techno; Post-Punk favorites like Young Marble Giants, Wire, The Cure & New Order; Black Star, Dilla, De La Soul vintage hip-hop; 60's mod, garage & girl groups and loads of Studio 1/Trojan era ska & dub. When we got back, we wrote 'Dressed In Dresden' over a couple of days in the studio and decided this was a band we wanted to be. We spent the next year writing and recording. We write together. One or the other brings in the foundation of a new track or lyrics and the two of us add to it, writing as we record, offsetting the precision of electronic production with analog machines, combining live loose guitars, vocals and percussion with stiff and exact programming. We have our influences but we try to keep it fresh and avoid pastiche. We keep our eyes and ears open absorbing the lessons of the pop classics, folding the present into the past toward the future to create dub histories; Avant-pop split between the austere and feverish. Maximum mutant R n'b.
Moon King
Moon King
Moon King brain child Daniel Woodhead has been busy in the studio putting the finishing touches on his brand new EP to be released this Spring. Obsession II, the second in the Obsession series, will be out April 20th on One Big Silence, the Toronto label formed and run by Mike Haliechuk of Fucked Up.

Joined again by long time collaborator and friend Maddy Wilde, Obsession II shows the band pushing their sound and delving into intensely distorted guitar riffs in a nod to bands like Jane’s Addiction or Jesus and Mary Chain but with a distinctly fun touch.
Expensive Looks
Expensive Looks, the pseudonym for New York-based producer Alec Feld, melds tropical garage breaks, shimmering visceral chants, and disco-edged house to kick back to the displays of natural forces and days of unparalleled euphoric ecstasy
