The 2 Bears, comprised of Hot Chip’s Joe Goddard and Raphael 'Raf Daddy' Rundell, have just released 'Get Out,' the opening track from their sophomore album, The Night is Young.
The track starts slowly, with a cadence that wouldn't feel out of place on a Hot Chip Album, but quickly builds and takes the listener on a journey to the dance floor. The track sets the stage nicely for the album's lead single, 'Angel (Touch Me),' which has had me grooving for several months now. The Night is Young releases on October 13th via Southern Fried Records.

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.
