Tender Buttons "You've Done It Now" - Amazing noise-rock. Tender Buttons features 2 members of Kill Me Tomorrow and it really shows. They have a very similar sound and I love it! It's noisy and dirty and distorted. One original track, one Van Halen cover (oh yes, you must check it out), and one remix done by Xiu Xiu. Killer EP. Play it now!!
My Picks: 1 (fcc), 2

1) Solid uptempo beat. Fuzzed out and really distorted drum machine and vocals. Lots of electronic noises and a really dirty bass line that sounds a bit like an engine. Fcc: says "fuck" but it's a little difficult to understand with the distortion.
2) Holy shit!! This is indeed a cover of Van Halen's "Jump." Wow! Slow and pounding. Distorted vocals and drum machine with the occasional electronic noise. Pretty minimal. This is so cool!
3) Noisy remix of track 1 by Xiu Xiu. Very quiet and minimal to start with some cut and paste from track 1. Overall it doesn't sound a lot like the original. Builds with more and more noise and then drops out again. About half through it drops off completely for a few seconds and then in comes with slow piano. Ends abruptly. Fcc: says "fuck" and this time it's obvious.
