Great new single from London's Detachments.  This is the lead single from their recently-released self-titled debut album.  The record was produced by James Ford of Simian Mobile Disco, and features additional production from Andrew Weatherall and DFA's Tim Goldsworthy.  I'm very much looking forward to this record. Sounds like some very authentic 80's throwback synthpop.  Check out Mirror People's remix of "Flowers That Fell" that I posted a while back. myspace buy

If you've been following the Bomarr Blog for a little while, you'll know that I'm a big fan of Mirror People's stuff.  I had heard this great remix of Somerville, Massachusetts artist Sweet Track floating around not too long ago, and was very happy to see this EP show up in my inbox courtesy of Sweet Track's label Brilliantine.  In addition to this classic 80's synth remix from Mirror People,  this digital-only EP also features remixes from Radiant Dragon, Optimus Prime and What Kind of Breeze Do You Blow? myspace buy

Detachments - "Flowers That Fell (Mirror People's 're-make re-model' version)" by Matt Bomarr

Yet another artist who has been blowing my mind lately is Mirror People, another project from Portugal's Rui Maia. He got my attention with his really impressive remix of Neon Indian's "Mind,Drips," so I did some research and stumbled on this Kraftwerk-y remix he did for UK band Detachments. Rui counts New Order, Add n to (x), Giorgio Moroder and Suicide as some of his favorites, so how could you NOT like this? He has a bunch of stuff for you to check out over at his Soundcloud page, all of it is really impressive. He also has more music and videos over on his MySpace page.
