So whether you’re nursing an election hangover (get ready for another 3 years at least), or you’re one of those quiet ones who are slightly chuffed at last night’s results (you know what will happen right?), it’s my hope that this mixtape, although a little late, will help make your Sunday night. It’s a biggun, and features some rather stellar acts. Not many individual tracks for download this month I know (keeping it kool with the artists dudes), but hey, the mixtape itself is solid – maybe give that a download instead.

Gold Coastian (that’s a thing right?) Paces has released a new EP, The Pact EP. It came out a fortnight ago (slow on the uptake I know) and is really excellent. Think Hudson Mohawke-esque, and a little bit of Ta-Ku thrown in.
You can stream the military style opener and title track ‘The Pact’ below. The track features the shwaeeet vocals from another local lass, Chela. You can stream the full EP on Paces’s soundcloud, and if you dig, give it a purchase.
Finally, if it really gets you keeeeeeeen, then make sure you check out Paces as he tours round the place – more details here.
I wasn’t too fussed on the original of this track. Whilst getting a whole heap of radio play and love on the blogzzz, it lacked something for me. It sounded a little thin on the ground. Clubfeet are definitely a great band, and pretty much nail that fun, summery feel good vibe. But ‘Heartbreak’ was a little off the mark for me.
Guerre has had his way with it though, and takes away any resemblance of fun. Or summer.
Instead, it’s turned into a dark, glitch-beat and cut-up vocal driven trip, taking you stumbling through a pretty freaky dreamstate.
It’s also really really good.
Props to the excellent FBi Radio up in Sydney for the heads up.
