Try for a while with nice sounds in it. Then, Swept away, got some kick ass drums in it if you get past the intro. None of their original tracks comes close to the Brazilian remixer Edu Imbernon's remake of Crystalised. Then there is also their remix of You Got The Love which brings home the touchdown pretty sweet indeed. Other than that? Let's wait for their next album.

Danish noise-rockers The Raveonettes are out with their 2012 album Observator. This has got to be one of the best albums of 2012, especially if you like The Cure. In addition, the members have really cool names like Sune Rose Wagner and Sharin Foo. I mean Foo! I could mention every track on the album, OK? Maybe I will too... Be sure to check out the track Young and Cold, this year's best noise track FoShiZzl3. Then, the Curesque Observations is sure to get you going. Even more Cureish, is She owns the street. Magical. Winter time noise is brought in in Sinking with the Sun. All good stuff, just get the album!
All planners and socialists - take a look here! Already in 1944, Friedrich August von Hayek (not related to Selma) had ideas on why central planning by a few albeit intelligent visionaries would still fail, and why these themselves would despite their intelligence are lured to a failing entity. If such a book was read in the manner it was written - composed and humble - then we might actually have a discussion of actual politics some day in the future. And, above all, it might also be productive. Yeah, sound nuts. Friedrich served in the 1st World War and then wanted to avoid being cannon fodder for Austrian-Hungarians on the Italian battlefield. He later studied in London and would during the 2nd World War further develop his liberal ideas, after the Adolf's Austrian Anschluss. In 1974, he shared the Nobel Economics Prize with Swedish socialist Gunnar Myrdal despite being Mr Free Market and Gold-Standard. Drop the remote for a second and take a look into this book and find out what real men read about while you are busy figuring out whether or not to call that girl that you do not remember what looked like who already, by the by, met someone else.
