Miike Snow – Cult Logic

I love Miike Snow. I love them for their weird spelling and for their antlered-rabbit. I love them for their beautiful, epic, danceable music and it’s fantastic lyrics. I love them for the way their music has snuck so deftly and solidly into my life. There was a time when nobody knew much about Miike Snow. Over time we learned that the band was made up of Swedish production duo Bloodshy & Avant with the addition of American vocalist Andrew Wyatt. Bloodshy & Avant are the Grammy winners behind such pop mega-hits as Britney Spears’ “Toxic” and Wyatt most recently co-wrote and produced Daniel Merriweather‘s debut album (along with Mark Ronson). These dudes are no newbies when it comes to the music scene and it’s a treat to see them (kinda) stepping out from behind the scenes. They still remain elusive and are prone to obscuring their faces in photos but that only makes me like them more. Miike Snow is about the music and that makes me about Miike Snow.

If you grabbed DJ be’s Slow Burn Summer mix yesterday then you know Miike Snow’s remix of Vampire Weekend as well as Treasure Fingers’ remix of “Animal.” Their debut album comes out on June 9th but you can be smart like me and buy it on iTunes now (comes with a fresh digital booklet with lyrics!). I could attempt to describe the awesomeness of it all to you but luckily for both of us Miike Snow are streaming the whole jam on MySpace so if you don’t believe me then go believe the music. “Animal” (and it’s myriad brilliant remixes) was the first track to catch my attention, followed by “Burial” and now “Cult Logic,” an anthem of sorts for me these days. Did I mention they are touring? Yeah, I’ll be at Spaceland in L.A. on June 16th if anyone wants to join the party.

    Love, love Bloodshy & Avant’s work with Britney Spears, and Miike Snow’s Animal is bloody fantastic. So glad to have learned they’re the same people – it just means I can expect more from Miike Snow now. Thanks for the heads up.

    Animal was the first song I liked, upon further inspection, Cult Logic took over, I can’t wait until they have remixes of that one. I agree they are about the music and they have plenty of that. All their tracks are cool, great sounds, interesting lyrics. The first time I heard them I thought the singer was Peter Gabriel, I know, there is a light similarity. Anyway I have become a fan of their stuff, let’s hope they continue creating more music, but for now we have 11 songs, if they happen to visit San Antonio, wishfull thinking, I will be there.

    I got of all them, thanks, but haven’t seen any for Cult Logic yet. I haven’t tried the Apple store, Zune’s doesn’t have that many either. I believe someone mentioned the lyrics being available if purchased from Itunes, might have to check that. So far of all the remixes for animal, I prefered the punks remix. At times it feels their music is already remixed.
    I am quite impressed with the burning ear, can’t believe I didn’t know about it until a couple of weeks ago. The slow summer burn remix introduced me to a wonderful group of artists, got my favs from Zune already. I had always envisioned a place to sample music and if the chord striked right, purchasing them culminates in enjoyable bliss.
