Mysterious Swedish wonders jj recently performed an abridged and tender acoustic cover the Nirvana staple, "Lithium". So much awesome in such a short space of time.

The Tough Alliance's A New Chance may be over two years old, but that hasn't stopped DFA electronic maestro, the Juan MacLean, from giving the record's title track a crisp, new reworking taken form the Prison Break remix EP. You can give the track a stream or take something away from the experience by downloading it for yourself.
We're psyched to inform you all that for the first time ever, The Bang Gang Deejays' D is for Disco, E is for Dancing is now available on 12" vinyl at the Mod Shop. Featuring exclusive tracks of The Bang Gang's classic mix, separated and divided over two sides of heavy duty vinyl and including the likes of The Presets, The Tough Alliance, Cut Copy and The Bumblebeez being re-rubbed by Bang Gang themselves, Shazam and Bag Raiders.
From the misty highlands of Sweden, the bat wielding, lip synching, genre bending whores that are The Tough Alliance smash us with a new joint for our friday freebie. This cover of The Zombies' hit "Hung Up On A Dream" is sweeter than a fistful of fairy floss delivered by a friendly liger.
The Tough Alliance landed on the cover of the FADER Magazine this month, right next to their home boy Busy Signal. Read their feature story online and in the mag, just in time for the October release of their album in Australia, A New Chance. Previously released on their own label Sincerely Yours, Modular is proud to offer The Tough Alliance a proper Australian release for all of you like us who won't fork out the coin for import prices. Tight arses.
