Fan Death is a disco band which started in Brooklyn, New York in 2007 and are now based in Vancouver, British Columbia. In 2008 Erol Alkan remixed and released their debut single Veronica's Veil on his Phantasy Sounds label. To date Fan Death has played shows with Florence and The Machine, Metronomy, Telepathe, Late Of The Pier and Franz Ferdinand as well as at the Afisha festival in Moscow and in Mexico City. They have been featured in international magazines such as NME, The Fader, Nylon Magazine, The Guardian Newspaper, Dazed and Confused Magazine and on the cover of Italy's Pig Magazine surrounded by naked men. The band recorded an EP in 2009 with the help and assistance of Kevin James Maher. Also in 2009, they have remixed artists such as Ladyhawke, Frankmusik, The Virgins, Lindstrom, The Lost Valentinos and Datarock. The name is a reference to the South Korean myth regarding the fear of suffocation via electric fan.
Florence + The Machine joined Clara at BBC Maida Vale for a Live Lounge Special. They performed six tracks including their latest single ‘Queen Of Peace’ and an amazingly uplifting cover of Skrillex & Justin Bieber's 'Where Are U Now'.
Original soundtrack to the 2013 motion picture directed by Baz Luhrman. The soundtrack features songs performed by Jay-Z, Beyonce & Andre 3000, Gotye, Jack White, Sia, Florence & The Machine, Lana Del Rey and many others. The film is an adaptation of F. Scott Fitzgerald's Long Island-set novel, where Midwesterner Nick Carraway is lured into the lavish world of his neighbor, Jay Gatsby. Soon enough, however, Carraway will see through the cracks of Gatsby's nouveau riche existence, where obsession, madness, and tragedy await. Deluxe Edition includes 3 Bonus Tracks and dialogue from the film.
DARKEST HOUR, the Washington, D.C. metalcore pioneers, will release their ninth full-length album, "Godless Prophets & The Migrant Flora", on March 10 via Southern Lord Recordings. The 12-song effort was part of a crowdfunding campaign that the band launched earlier this year, with the ultimate tally netting the band well over 100% of the initial goal and allowing them to also create an album beyond their initial expectations. The band chose producer Kurt Ballou (HIGH ON FIRE, NAILS, CONVERGE) for "his obvious genius" (as guitar player Mike Schleibaum said) and recorded the release at Ballou's Godcity Studio. Artist Shaun Beaudry was commissioned to create a custom painting, giving the album a unique visual identity.
The magnificent dancing collection for a big amicable party. Merry Christmas!
