The Presets (& Cut Copy too...)

wow. been a while, yeah? too long, you say?! well we're back, just in time for one of the best shows this fall - if the price of tickets on Craigs List is any indication ($100 each, wtf?!?!)

Anyways, if you can't make the show tonight at the Commodore (cause it's been sold out for a while now), you should definitely consider dragging yourself out to Republic for the what-now-appears-to-be-obligatory afterparty DJ set.

And in the spirit of afterparty sets, & in recognition of the fact that it's been way too long since we've given out some musical goodness around here (for shame!!!) I tracked down this half-hour DJ set by the Presets, live on BBC 6 radio. Pretty nice little set, heavy on the 80's - check the tracklist, we got Crockett's Theme from Miami Vice in there!!! (ahhh, Crockett, where are you now???), some Vangelis, a little Hercules & Love Affair...

(Be warned - at the start of the recording there's 20 seconds of silence that I was too lazy to cut out. Dunno where it came from, cause it's not in the original, just the rip, but... meh. mr_)
