Cheers Elephant’s Derek Krzywicki gets funky on some new French disco

As reported by the band’s Twitter, Cheers Elephant frontman Derek Krzywicki recently worked with a French producer who goes by the name of Digital Badbeat. The product of their collaboration? “The Coach.” A Daft Punk-esque disco track that’s obviously worth a listen (or two or three). From the opening, wildly infectious beat, to the onslaught of heavy synthesizers that shortly follows, there’s never anything even close to a dull moment on this tune. Still not convinced it’s worth it? Just wait for (what sounds like) the choir of schoolchildren to help out on backing vocals near the two and a half minute mark. Check it out for yourself below via Soundcloud.

Hear “The Dark Age” from Widowspeak’s Almanac (playing Kung Fu Necktie 1/23)

Brooklyn four-piece Widowspeak, gearing up for the release of their sophomore record Almanac later this month, are streaming their track “The Dark Age” via Soundcloud. “The Dark Age” follows up Widowspeak’s first single “The Ballad of the Golden Hour” with a definitively more somber turn from the band’s typical luminosity. Singer Molly Hamilton’s haunting vocals cry heartbreak, sweeping over flashy guitar riffs and a catchy, melodic beat. Widowspeak is playing at Kung Fu Necktie January 23rd; go here for information and tickets to the 21+ show, and listen to “The Dark Age” below.
