Some months ago Javelin announced they were about to release two 12" on Thrill Jockey, consisting both of them of new tracks and a re-recorded old track on each of them. Both records as well are limited to 500 (the first one selling out in a couple of weeks) made out of recycled and unique old record covers customized with stamped wax Javelin logos on the front cover and a piece of paper with the tracklist glued on the back. My copy cover of Javelin 1 is an old live recording of Nancy Wilson, for example.
So Javelin 2 is going to be out in a couple of weeks and you can already pre-order it on-line on the Thrill Jockey website and stream the four tracks on it and prepare the money for their eminent first proper album called No Mas and coming out on David Byrne's label Luaka Bop on the 20th of April.
These tracks are more of what we've heard so far: a great mixmatch of genres from proto-electronics, world music, disco, funk and sampledelia to 80s hip hop, tropicalia or rnb. Or what is the same, the most fresh and festive stuff since The Avalanches.
And after Lindsay Broham, here you have Beyondce.
