I’m liking the driving, epic nature of this new Miike Snow single. Kinda makes me want to cut my own movie montage scene and set it to this song.
Listen here and tell me if you agree:
So I’m just going to direct you to your favorite torrent site or this convenient YouTube stream:
PS: It’s a fun little song, sounds like Is This It era Strokes if you were into that sorta thing.
Most of the talk is going to be about the King Crimson sample of “21st Century Schizoid Man”, but I love the dirty drum beat juxtaposed with an African chorus chant. It definitely evokes memory of the epic “Jesus Walks”. The little piano melody halfway through is a nice touch too.
“What about the lyrics?” you may ask. Check out the beginning of this verse:
Fuck SNL and the whole cast
Tell ‘em Yeezy said they can kiss my whole ass
More specifically, they can kiss my asshole
Or this gem:
I don’t need yo’ pussy, bitch, I’m on my own dick
Yeah, man, Kanye is a potty guy. But props for backing it up with a well produced track.
I imagine spaceships and lasers throughout. By the end of the song, I was ready to shout “OUT HERE IN THE FIELDS!”
No, that’s not a black and white version of Coldplay’s X&Y cover up there, it’s the cover to the latest Nine Inch Nails single, Discipline. This ain’t no BS instrumental either, we get to hear Trent Reznor’s soothing vocals layered over a 122 bpm bed. It’s a vintage Nine Inch Nails song, fans casual and hardcore alike should be into it.
If you look within the ID3 tag of the single, there’s a cryptic note that says:

Hmmmm, maybe more free tracks? An album release date?
You can get your own copy of discipline here. All it takes is your email and you get a pristinely encoded VBR MP3. Trent takes care of his fans.

Entitled “I Will Possess Your Heart,” the track clocks in at a whopping 8:35. Those expecting to hear another “Soul Meets Body” may want to temper those expectations as this song is less poppy than previous DCFC tunes. Be prepared for a very long intro. (over 4 minutes!)
Nevertheless, when Ben Gibbard’s soothing voice enters the fray, you can’t help but feel all is right in the world again.
