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.
ok, so here we go. It’s only about a week or so late, but I’ve been pretty busy lately (mismatch.tv being a big focus). This month has seen so many awesome releases, and like always, a pretty big mix of stuff. The St Vitus Cardinals boys are doing some really sweet things at the mo (I actually had a chat to Ry about it and his solo stuff earlier on in the week). Tyler Touché is also a standout for me – he’s a friggin’ high school kid and he has production skills like that??!! It also makes me pretty hungry, french style.
Then then there’s the awesome sounds of bands like Lurch & Chief, The Smith Street Band and King Gizzard and The Lizard Wizard (their album is stellar!). As per usual, some tracks are available for individual download, others, you just gonna have to hear in the full tape.

Some awesome new Guerre for your Tuesday night. It’s part of a split ’12 with another Sydney beatsmith Nagakin.
It’s like this future beat sleaze r’n’b that is really fucking good.
Getting a proper release on Sep 1, but in the mean time stream it here or on the The Finer Things Records bandcamp page.
This mini remix Ep was released at the end of last week and man, it is amazing. We posted about the Oliver Tank remix of Geoffrey O’Connor‘s Whatever Leads Me To You last week on our facebook. And then I heard the other remixes on this new ‘Yes Please’ Remix EP…and subsequently downloaded all the other remix EP’s Mr O’Connor put out late last year – yeah…they be THAT GOOD.
These are pretty spectacular. I really liked Geoffrey O’Connor’s LP from last year. He has such a distinctive 80’s influenced cinematic sound. And then these awesome beat makers have their nasty way with his work. And it fucking works!
Instead of streaming the Oliver Tank remix, I think the Guerre remix of Proud is my fave on the three track EP. If you dig though, make sure you grab all of the stuff from Mr O’Connor’s bandcamp page. We also got a remix of So Sorry by Melbourne’s Indian Summer DJs.

Guerre. This is a name I’ve heard a bit, namely from the excellent To & Fro as well as the equally excellent Sound Lab. It was only until I checked out the very good rose quartz blog that it all clicked.
Guerre do some almost soul style beaty atmospheric kinda stuff. Big track that people might know is Millennium Blues which we got streaming below. You should also make sure you check out the EP though, Darker My Love – grab it over on the Yes Please Records bandcamp.
This is some rather excellent stuff for a night in. or a Sunday morning. It be a win win for me.
We got Millennium Blues and Transnautica from the Darker My Love EP down below as streams. YES!
Guerre – Transnautica
