Nice name, James Pants! There’s something about the word “pants” that’s just a little bit funny. The same is true with James Pants’ music.

Gangsta-funk basslines for days and days. No wonder M.I.A. hired him to produce her third album release, Maya.
Known for deconstructing rock, punk, and electronic, taking it to the garage and stripping its fancy parts, the math-rock supergroup Battles experiment with new blood–one with Chilean sweet vocals. His name is Matias Aguayo and on the first song from the forthcoming album Gloss Drop called “Ice Cream” we get sticky prog-rock gone haywire, a bonanza of vicious riffs and made-up words. What an interesting treat! But, that’s the Battles for you.
“The Great Pan Is Dead” is the first track off of Cold Cave‘s forthcoming album entitled Cherish The Light Years (April 5/Matador Records). Recorded with Chris Coady (Beach House, Yeah Yeah Yeahs), this synth-rock group crafts an album in the same spectrum as their musical compatriots, (Cut Copy, The Rapture), but tweaked with the aesthetic of Morrissey ‘s “How Soon Is Now” wailing over the dance angst of Nitzer Ebb .

Marrying the experimental instincts and heavy bass instrumentation of math-rock outfit Battles, with the harmonious melodic breakdowns of Aphex Twin, Australian outfit PVT (formerly known as Pivot) creates powerful, concentrated electronic-rock on third full-length, Church With No Magic.
While we don’t have the original title track to giveaway, the Midnight Juggernauts remix breathes the same energy except this one moves more like a psychedelic-rock molasses: dark, thick, and smooth as can be.
With her billowing brand of torch vocals–bedroom lyrics given a soapbox–this Danish singer-songwriter recalls a blissful Fever Ray. But Nanna Oland Fabricius aka Oh Land seems less reluctant to indulge her songs’ natural pop turns. Laden with hooks and leavened with soul, her sound is sturdy and winning.
