Simian Mobile Disco: Coming Soon

I first heard this stylised production and remix team, Simian Mobile Disco, made up of James Ellis Ford and James Anthony Shaw, a few weeks ago when I was shopping at the Puma store on Bloor Street.  The store was pretty much empty, but they had a DJ spinning music and the track that was playing when I walked in was Hustler.  I instantly loved the beat, but my real worship began when I got home and watched the video for this song on youtube.  It is seriously one of the coolest videos EVER.  Turns out this group has been around for a while, but just recently released their first album, Attack Decay Sustain Release, about a month ago.  This album is incredible.  Every track is amazing.  Their sound is kind of like the French duo Air, but way more upbeat and dancier.

Anyway, SMD just started touring to promote the album.  This summer they’re mostly in Europe, hitting the Ibiza scene, etc.  However, come September, they embark on a limited North American tour.  And they’re coming to Toronto! Monday, September 17 SMD will be hitting up The Mod Club at 722 College Street.  Tickets for the NYC show are $18, so they should be similarly priced in TO. 

Check out all their work, but the aforementioned Hustler and I Believe are my favourite tracks off their new album.
