The Tough Alliance's New Video: A New Chance

The soundscape of the Tough Alliance, when I first heard it, reminded me of the video game Crash Bandicoot. It looks like the electro group realized how cartoonish they were and decided to celebrate it.

I Am Finn Remixed By Van She

More Van She at your fingertips! Aussiepop is taking over Deschamps. Christian Rice of Handsome Clothing Co. was nice enough to provide me a remix by Van She of I Am Finn's "I Love You."

You Still Shouldn't Fear the Reaper

This blog often exercises in reverence for the past, with odes to songs and videos made decades before this writer's birth. This time, the standard is reversed. The Australian electro band Van She has released a beautiful cover of Blue Oyster Cult's "Don't Fear the Reaper," which I cannot stop playing on repeat. The song is ripped off of the radio, with the sound of a DJ at the beginning. I'll post a link to the finalized version whenever I get a hold of it.
