The OXD Mirror: New Music by GusGus, Nancy Whang, Cut Copy and more

 

Nancy Whang, formerly of LCD Soundystem and The Juan Maclean, is taking off solo in a new collaboration with Audiojack, 'Like An Eagle.' The duo doesn't disappoint, showcasing a record reminiscent of the euro-disco era.

JagwarmaFrench-Canadian deep house maven Fred Everything remixes 'Midnight Man' by Nacho Marco, a cover of Flash And The Pan's classic track released in 1985, and creates a punching bass that is impossible to ignore.

Everything Cut Copy touches turns gold – and this re-work for fellow Aussie group Jagwar Ma is no exception.

Ultracity, a Swedish dance music duo, discreetly published 'Lonely' without further details of its official release, although at least for now the track is available in full over stream. The re-work by Waldemar Schwartz is the highlight of the EP, a surprisingly soulful work with a touching piano melody and smooth vocals.

OCCUPY THE DISCO (OXD) curates and recommends music events to the gay community in NYC—in an effort to move the focus of the nightlife scene beyond the promoter and venue and to the music itself. OXD's goal is to educate, entertain, engage and empower the gay audience to reclaim their ability to question and experience the unknown. The OXD Mirror will serve to showcase tunes that are definitely off-the-beaten-path but rightfully deserve the attention of the gay ear.

    Gus Gus is absolutely AMAZING !!! !!!

    Check out their video for Add This Song. It’s a chilling track, and the video has strong homoerotic elements to it.

    Also check out ‘Over’ – shows the beauty of the Icelandic landscape (and people and creativity). Many of their live performans are great to watch too. Arabian Horse, Deep Inside, for example.

    I rarely like the music suggestions on Towleroad, but it just earned big points with me in recommending Gus Gus.
