The blogs are all finally catching on to Palms Out discovery Fagget Fairys. When the first round of 12″s came out, I didn’t read about them too much, despite it being an important step in digital music history that an mp3 blog was putting out a vinyl record. Long since sold out, you waiters are getting a break because at the end of this month, when Fagget Fairys’ debut Feed the Horse comes out, Palms Out will be reissuing the “Samo Ti” single. WOOOOO! On March 30th the myth that lesbians don’t like dance music will finally be laid to rest, you’ll be able to buy (yes, PURCHASE, with cash dollas) it via Music For Dreams. Until then, you can get the first single below.

I don’t know about y’all, but these days when I hear about a new Peaches album, I get a little scared. Don’t get me wrong, the lady has done a lot for sex. As in, she has single handedly allowed hipsters to talk about it, and be a little sore when they walk the walk about it. I was able to interview her during the Fatherfucker tour, and let me tell you: she has strong vision and nothing but love for anyone with a freeness about sexuality. HOWEVER Impeach My Bush, her last record, mostly collapsed under her own weight, and I was beginning to doubt. The sounds started dating themselves, and I was worried it would be the end. But I wouldn’t want an indie scene without her! THANK GOD she started remixing, because her remixes have been stellar. This week, it was with great relief that I read she was letting some new blood into her labia-fold, and here come Drums Of Death. Tourmates and album contributors for Peaches circa 2009, it is always good news when a veteran gets a youngsta she inspired to help out. It’s like the sexual circle if life. Drums Of Death is from the UK and released a Peaches inspired mixtape that embeds the new song “I Feel Cream,” the title track of the record (hint: some hot shit starts right around the middle and continues right at the end).
Download below, tour dates and album track list after the jump. I Feel Cream is out May 5th on XL Recordings.
Prediction: the digital age will make tangible media more expensive and valuable, but also better. People will take a second day and think about it more–do I really need to make this? Is is worth the space it’s taking up? In addition to weeding out crappy ideas, the omnipresent screen will also make nostalgia more selective. Dopejams.net is a vinyl distributor of sorts, maybe you can even call it a record label. Whatever it is, it specializes in unofficial reissues, and they are keen enough to have a little focus on the gay. The store has releases on “Gay Records,” a subsidiary, perhaps; 12″s by Arthur Russell and Sylvester; the website even has a preview stream for each track so you know what you are getting into. Record collectors, beware: you are about to spend some cash.
