Club Contact

The new MP3 blog from London's club Contact. The idea is to allow people to hear new music they wouldn't have otherwise found but, if anyone has any copyright issues with a particular song, i'll take the link down. Songs are only available for a limited amount of time.

Oh dear. My computer at home has exploded so i have to come into work early to post songs. Never mind.

The amazing Cansei de Ser Sexy (Tired Of Being Sexy) released their first single in the US on Monday. They're a D-I-Y electro-pop group from Brazil who may well be the first genuinely great act to have risen to international fame on the back of Youtube (and its Brazilian counterpart). Their commitment to file-sharing and the free flow of music led them to give away a blank CD-R with copies of their album so that people could burn it for their friends. The influence that things like MySpace and Youtube will have on the music industry may have been slightly overstated in some sections of the press but there's something really quite thrilling about technology that allows a band that would probably have still been playing parties in their friends' houses in Sao Paolo to win fans (and record deals) thousands of miles away.

The music itself is exceptional - messy Tom-Tom Club style disco-funk with song titles like Let's Make Love And Listen To Death From Above.
