we are excited to announce that glass candy just finished
the 12" version of "FEELING WITHOUT TOUCHING".
we are releasing it as a 12" maxi single.
our first record of 2010.
it's being mastered right now! we should have the vinyl in about
a month and a half vinyl features full color two sided insert and
lyric sheet. glass candy's first official video is finished too.
directed by travis peterson in l.a. (he also shot amazing videos
for nite jewel, geneva jacuzzi & areil pink) shot the night before
they slaughtered coachella last year. we'll post it as soon as it gets
out of production. here's the track list for the 12" (26 minutes of
unreleased musick) :

Side One
Side Two
SUGAR & WHITEBREAD (Instrumental)

rumor has it that they are throwing a bonus mystery track on the
b side... also... the new farah "GAY BOY" 12" is done.
recorded in november of 2008, and mixed last week in montreal.
probably the strangest record we have ever heard. we've been
scratching our heads for over a year trying to figure out what to
do with this one. a cult classic for sure. imagine ll cool j's "i need
love" & the shangri las "leader of the pack" through the eyes of a
valley girl on lithium. an out take from the new farah lp "INTO
ETERNITY" suite 304 studio sessions. her debut full length lp on
the way this spring. desire just added another installment to their
ongoing tour photo blog.

  • in other news...the two year chromatics hiatus is over.
    rumors of break-ups etc...are all false.
    johnny, ruth, adam, and natty have been back in the studio
    working on a new 2 x lp. keep your fingers crossed...it
    might be out in time for autumn! their darkest work yet.
    maybe we can talk them into touring again.
    according to mr. jewel, it covers 13 years of music written
    between 1996 & 2009. touching on everything from the velvet
    underground to kristopher komeda to gate. and for everyone
    wanting "NIGHT DRIVE" on vinyl... good news... we should finally
    have it this summer. the album as we know it was originally a
    tour demo. we never expected it to blow up so fast, and they
    never got the chance to properly mix or master it. the new vinyl
    version is going to be a double lp with four unreleased bonus tracks!!!
    we are pleaed to announce that the new italians do it better label
    sampler is almost done. "INTO THE BLACK" (aka after dark pt. 2)
    features new & exclusive tracks from desire, glass candy, chromatics,
    mirage, farah, bottin, twisted wires, appaloosa... three years in the
    making. it's going to be epic!!!

    one of the best voices of all time. will never be touched.


    i just looked through the old Killer Kuts from 2006, 2007
    and realized how many killer kuts were in there... some
    serious killer stuff and this was way before disco was cool!
    should we bring it back?

    new mix by MIKE SIMONETTI

    hello. Mike found some time to do a new mix. Its
    called BACK TO AFRICA and it was done for Cosmic
    Disco website, one of our favorite sites. This was
    made with old 45s and lps and even a few 12"s
    thrown in.
    You may remember the AFRICAN CONNECTION mix.
    It is all African music (obv). This is part 2 of the mix.
    Part 1 is still floating around the world wide web if you
    use the Google. Anyway enjoy this mix. Try to find
    these tracks! Enjoy these insane Afro cosmic sounds...

    New mix from Anton Qlint (Tiedye)

    Happy New Year. Sorry we've been out of touch.
    We were busy gearing up for 2010, working,
    sleeping, eating, buying records, making music,
    playing with our kids, etc. 2010 is going to be
    insane for Italians. expect tons of surprises on
    every front, tons of live gigs and some great
    news in the close future! Yes very cryptic for
    now but it will all fall into place soon enough.

    ANYWAY, here is our first mix to start off 2010
    and its from our good friends and comrade
    Anton Qlint from Tiedye all the way from Gburg
    Sweden, one of my favorite places as you know!
    Good luck with this one, its full of Scandanavian
    rock that you will never be able to find!
