Went in for the kill, did really well, now where’s my milkshake?

Kelis – In for the Kill (La Roux Cover)

I truly believed that the wave that was MGMT that permeated every dj set for nearly a year was long over and replaced by the likes of Passion Pit and La Roux. But this weekend I was proven wrong when I witnessed Toronto’s Keys N Krates open with a jam-band version of Kids and Million Dollar Mano incorporate the same tune into the intro of his set, which, if I may take the time to say so, was awesome despite his complete lack of stage presence. Last week, URB mag nominated Kids for Song of the Decade. Now don’t get me wrong, the song is good (okay, great), but this nomination leads me to question if URB has the same perverted fools working for them as Billboard, who recently nominated Nickelback for band of the decade (who were, in contrast, voted worst band in the world by the Uk’s Word magazine), rulling out other competitors like Jay Z and Beyonce. I never thought I would ever be given the chance to utter the name Nickelback on this site. Anyhow, I digress, I awoke this a.m. to find this semi-dubstep take on MGMT’s hit on Audioporn Central. I guess the wave simply retracted to build some strength. Or perhaps its the end of the year and people are feeling particularly nostalgic as they prepare themselves for the holidays. Either way, enjoy.

Their going in for the Kill!

England’s electropop duo, La Roux, releases their second single today! Their first single Quicksand was released in late November 2008 on the French label, Kitsune, (which also represents the likes of Fred Falke, Crystal Castles, Cut Copy and so many other amazing electro talent), and was a smashing success. In for the kill has be well primed for its release in effect of the multiple remixes crafted following its leak a while back, including ones by Hostage, Skream and the Twelves. The rest of the album is sure to garner them huge success over the next year.
