A bit under the weather, so short and sweet post today.
Fitness Club Fiasco are a synth-pop band that’s been recording in Bristol, England, for the past year (FCF describe themselves as a “a 4-piece synth-pop jungle gym”). In early 2010 they released this single and I was instantly hooked. The best way to describe this track is a fun song that makes you want to dance. According to the band’s Myspace page, they’ll have “a shiny new full length album out sometime when there’s snow on the ground (in Canada)”.

This trio originally hails from Puerto Rico, but after different stints found them in different parts of the US, the trio converged in Brooklyn. In 2008, Cut Copy heard some of the band’s songs and handpicked them as an opening act on their North American tour. From here on out, Kordan became a household name in the indie music blogosphere. This year saw the release of Kordan’s debut full-length album, The Longing. My favorite track definitely has to be Closer—a seamless fusion of electro and shoegaze. Enjoy.
