Tv On The Radio’s Dave Sitek’s favourite band are also New York’s strangest new prospect. TELEPATHE veer from electric karaoke to instrumental noise-pop, happily cementing their position as 2008’s most intriguing band… The Brooklyn three piece deliver a live set of eerie textural music and interweave into it a rhythmic pattern that pulls the listener in, which bring to mind such outfits as Can, Gang Gang Dance, or perhaps even Animal Collective in their most spaced out hypnotic mode…
‘A mesmerising midway-point between electro experimentalists The Knife and White Light/White Heat-era Velvet Underground.’ Uncut
“Telepathe have managed to stir up the hearts, minds, and laptops of New York’s young music fanatics over the past year.” Interview Magazine
“Brooklyn banshees with a brand new beat, Telepathe stand out from the NY district’s vacuum of avant-garde…[they] have a newfound focus as Hot 97 hip-hop and totemic drone experimentalism collide.” Drowned in Sound
Glastonbury Festival Battle of the Bands winners We Have Band “describe themselves as “a disco-rock trio”, claim they “wear their influences like a flak jacket” and reckon they sound like elephants. Not elephants doing the fandango, or elephants on acid. Just elephants.
With male-female vocals and a ping-pong rhythm that recalls that Atari tennis game kids played in the late 70s, this is bleak house – not as in the Dickens novel but as in dark dance music. It’s almost goth-ic, with an infectious, insistent rhythm like Bauhaus doing the watusi at Bela Lugosi’s wake. …Despite referencing electronic musicians past and present, the great thing about We Have Band songs is that they’d sound just as good being strummed by a hairy busker down Tottenham Court Road tube. That’s not an invitation, beardy bloke in We Have Band, it’s an observation.” GUARDIAN
