Alphabeat Reveal The Powers Lurking Inside All Your Mix Tapes

Jul 15th, 2008 // 10 Comments

I really, really hope that Danish wonky pop outfit Alphabeat keeps releasing summer jams for the Stacey Q-raised set every month until September. Also: I would love to know just how many feet of magnetic tape were used in the climactic scene of this video, where Alphabeat singer Stine Bramsen unleashes the fury of the cassettes she’s dedicated to the boy of her dreams. (If only I’d known how to employ that tactic back in ninth grade.) [YouTube / [MySpace]

    Yes, well, that song is fantastic.

  2. Maura Johnston

    @NickEddy: Right? I love it.

  3. Thierry

    Brilliant. And I fully expect the U.S. label that will eventually pick up this perfect summer album for distribution to re-release it in the dead of winter (mid-February, perhaps?).

  4. ZipZapZopZoup

    That’s not the version on the album. Anyone know where I can find this one?

  5. Kate Richardson

    That tall Danish dude is the best thing around these days.

    With this and Fluxblog posting “Fantastic 6″ last week, I’ve been hooked on Alphabeat for the few days now. I really need to get a copy of that record. Maybe I’ll have to order it as an import because I’m afraid Thierry is right and we’ll get it state-side in January or February.

    Great choice Maura!

    This is that band that Perez Hilton has written about a bunch of times, right?

    I get to realize my lifelong dream of DJing at a roller rink for my B-day this year, and this band, along with Robyn and Annie, are so going in the setlist. Thanks for the heads up, Maura! 2 of ( \/ )s 4evah!

    @owenmeany: What does that have to do with anything?
