    Just discovered a sampler for this lying around. Hard to describe, but it has the edge that it has songs you may well be hearing a lot of over the summer. I haven't been able to take it off since I discovered it. Someone, somewhere will use this to great effect as soundtrack music.

    I give up trying to describe this, here is the the quote typed from the cover of the sampler:

    "In 2010, pop music sure isn't what it used to be...especially in Brooklyn, New York. While the direct energy of punk still pervades the landscape and the ghosts of hip-hop's past still haunt it's streets, these are now but cells making up a larger organism, almost infinite in scope - case in point, The Hundred In The Hands.

    In the interest of introductions, the epic voice you hear rippling from 'Dressed in Dresden' is Elanore Everdell, while the man behind the precision guitar lines and percussive bombast is Jason Friedman...that's right, it's but a duo making all the magnificent noise. Emotionally charged and intensely driving it harks back to the most classic of dance songs from NYC's stoned underground. The Hundred In The Hands' self description of "summertime gothic" belies more than just a dance band , and it is true that this EP only scratches the surface of what's to come from their imminent album for WARP. This Desert EP releases May 14th on Warp."

    It's like some electro-infected version of The Kills. Chick even looks like VV.

    That being said, it's not bad. Might even pick up the EP if I see it in a store.

    @Flup thanks for the heads up.
