Thom Yorke is a fan of Montreal’s D’eon. Look, there it is, D’eon’s work of genius “Kill A Man With A Joystick in Your Hand” sitting there near the end of the mix. Also, just heard this D’eon remix of “Serpent” by Gatekeeper. Excellent stuff. There is word of a 12″ around the corner, a split with Grimes. Oh yes.
Blue Hawaii‘s album Blooming Summer is being re-released, on CD for those who were too cassette-averse to purchase it last year. We love Blooming Summer – it was #4 on our year-end albums list so we highly recommend picking it up from the Arbutus shop. To sweeten the deal, there’s two bonus tracks: “Floral,” in which the duo is joined by two of the members of Braids and a remix of “Dream Electrixra” by David Carriere of Silly Kissers. Arbutustastic!
