The OXD Mirror is a weekly music column brought to you by the boys of OCCUPY THE DISCO (OXD), a New York City based collective created by three music lovers, Ru Bhatt, Josh Appelbaum, and Tad Haes, who want to share their love for disco, house and dance music with the world.
UK's Monarchy (Andrew Armstrong and Ra Black) finally have a new album in the works, releasing later this year. The lead single, an electronic ballad called 'Living Without You', stays true to the sound we became familiar with on their 2011 album, Around The Sun. Monarchy will always hold a special place in our hearts as it was going to their concert that inspired us to create Occupy The Disco. After releasing a few collaborations with the likes of Dita Von Teese and Mighty Mouse, we're eager to hear the rest of the new album and inevitable remixes (one of which I've included after the jump).

Well now they’ve released a lyrical video for the song that features the three musicians in a psychedelic black-and-white kaleidoscope that’s as hypnotic as the song itself.

Röyksopp released the first single from their upcoming EP collaboration with Robyn on Annie Mac's BBC Radio1 show.
Allrite, this is the first serving from our forthcoming release (together with @robyn), called "Do It Again". Hopefully - if we've done this right, it should sit well with those of you anticipating long summernights & all of that... B+B
Listen, AFTER THE JUMP...
Last week we posted a snippet of a new track called "Say It" featured in a promo for the upcoming tour from Swedish pop star Robyn and electronic duo Röyksopp and now comes news of a five-track "mini-album" which includes that song as well as a new one they're previewing today.
The album hits on May 26.
Said Robyn in a press release:
"Svein and Torbjörn and I started working on new music in the beginning of 2013, Ive been going back and forth to Bergen to record and write with the boys up until recently. Collaborating with S & T is something I enjoy very much. In the beginning we just knew we wanted to do something together and then it started to feel more like a band thing than songs for a Röyksopp or Robyn album so we´re releasing this music together as a band you could say."
