Simply put, Classixx are on a helluva streak. The LA duo of Michael David and Tyler Blake have been featured on the blog before, but if they keep it up, they might need a weekly feature.
In December we heard RAC's remix of Stranger Love, the first taste of their upcoming debut album, Hanging Gardens. March brought the first single, Holding On, followed by another track, Borderline.
Despite all the evidence, I still was completely unprepared for All You're Waiting For, featuring vocals from LCD Soundsystem's Nancy Whang. From the moment you hear that warped synth, it just builds, becoming a tune that is a front-runner for song of the summer.
If for some absurd reason I haven't made my case, you can hear the entire album a week early on NPR's "First Listen". The guys are currently on tour with Dragonette and The Presets, hitting up a bunch of cities, minus Chicago. Their debut album, Hanging Gardens, is scheduled for release, May 14, via Innovative Leisure.
