Where does this come from?!?

Just listen to this.

Coke Rats - "Dinnertime" (Download)


I KNOW, RIGHT?

We mentioned Coke Rats a little while a go, and apparently for good reason. "Dinnertime" is like a less refined Grizzly Bear, or a more morbid Page France. And yet how unknown is this band? When I Googled their name for a picture, I just got images of Coke bottles and rats. After searching HypeM, I can say that as of last night no one else has written about them. This just blows my mind.

When you add The Heligoats to the equation, you notice that Slanty Shanty Records is turning into quite the little gold mine. Pay attention now before everyone else does.

Well isn't this just WONDERFUL!

So yeah, this crazy thing happened called LIFE. It's this odd phenomenon where shit happens and it happens all at once, leaving you with no spare time for novelties like kick-ass music blogs. And it's at this point that I've decided to say FUCK LIFE and rise like a phoenix from the ashes to start providing our lovely readers with some lovely content. It's all rather lovely.

There might be some changes coming around these parts. I'm wholly unsure of what these changes are, but just assume they will be mindblowing and incredible.

In the meantime, my favourite remixers Pance Party (quite literally my favourite) have dropped another banger on us, as they've once again teamed up with Chester French. This is a good combo, my friends. Good indeed.

Check it and the badass video for it (which is also doubling as our video of the week since we haven't had one of those in...well, more than a week). And you can get all this badassery in one spot right here.

I HAVE MISSED Y'ALL.
