Django Django’s cover of The Monkees 1968 song, recorded for their Late Night Tales mix compilation and released as a 7″ single for Record Store Day 2014. Their LNT Mix is well worth a listen, with a diverse mix of influential artists, including Philip Glass, Canned Heat, Bob James and even Outkast.

Black Keys Fever

Just as I started writing a review on my favourite Black Keys album Attack & Release, I found out that they had started previewing a single from their new album Turn Blue.
