Last year everyone's favourite person (Dean Bein) released an EP by Glasser on his True Panther Sounds label. The beautiful 12" came with a handmade kaleidoscope on the front, all cut out by Dean. Dedication.

That EP ('Apply'), came with a remix by those fine tropical disco New Yorkers Tanlines (download below).

She'll also be releasing the Tremel EP on Young Turks in a couple of months, with an album in the works.

Ancient Crux

The wonderful and ever on it blog Rose Quartz have posted a couple of tracks and a short write up on Ancient Crux, click HERE to read it all and download two tracks ('Mutant Beach Theme' and 'Demand Respect'), taken from their split with Ouija.

"'Mutant Beach Theme' which makes me experience two different childhood memories, a) listening to Weezer and b) playing with Toxic Crusaders toys in my lounge which was "awesome""

The split 7" with Weed Diamond will be out in a short while, the artwork just came in and is looking very cool.
