The production duo Javelin have covered some ground in the two years since Luaka
Bop loosed their genre-hopping LP No Más
. They've carved out a niche uniquely
their own- a pastiche of live music and recreated samples played live – with a hard
focus on melody that pretty much makes anything they touch simply, 'the jam.'
So it goes: Providence warehouse parties to Brooklyn warehouse parties. Pitchfork.
Stop. Luaka Bop. Whitney Museum. Tours with Yeasayer, Girl Talk, Matt & Kim. Stop.
Remixes for Future Islands, Health. Production work for hip-hop moguls and pop
The National Weather Service predicts the appearance of Javelin's long awaited
follow up to No Más
in the fourth quarter of 2012
. To sate you, Luaka Bop will now
put a finger in your yearning dyke.
Prior to the release of No Más
, Javelin issued two limited edition 12
'''s with Thrill
Jockey. Now collector's pieces, Javelin and Javelin 2
were held to 500
copies each and
never made the light of a digital day. Taken together, the EPs contain some live set
staples and fan favorites including the ferocious 8
-bit homage 'Soda Popinski,' the flat ass-popper 'Beyondce,' and the sublime statement of intent 'Radio.'
Listen now. It's preternaturally spring. Might as well be summer.
Take these jams.
