New Music: Broken Spindles - "Beatdown Breakup" (Cassettes Won't Listen Remix)

MP3 - "Beatdown Breakup" (Cassettes Won't Listen Remix)
- Broken Spindles
Broken Spindles is the side project of the Faint's Joel Petersen. Petersen's latest release, Kiss/Kick dropped earlier this week on the Faint's blank.wav label (after several releases on Saddle Creek). While The Faint tend to make perfect music for a dance floor full of sweaty hipsters, I've associated Broken Spindles with more experimental/glitchy blips and beeps. Sometimes ambient, and sometimes agressive, Broken Spindles sit nicely alongside Dntel, Aphex Twin, and the Album Leaf. Brooklyn laptop maestro Cassettes Won't Listen, however, have turned Broken Spindles into a seriously catchy electronic force with his remix of "Beatdown Breakup." Broken Spindles are currently on tour and will be playing the Echo in Los Angeles tonight and Thee Parkside in San Francisco (with Shiloe!!!) tomorrow.
