Needless to say, the track is NSFW. Likewise, the video is NSFW, but only because of the lyrics, not the sick breakdancing.

- Les Demoniaques is Tamaryn, and Dee Dee Penny (Dum Dum Girls). I’m featuring their cover of “Teenage Lust” by The Jesus And Mary Chain, which is featured above on picture disc. NSFW without the sleeve.
- Go ahead and grab Midnight City at M83‘s website for the price of an email address.

- The new album by Handsome Furs is one of my favorite albums of 2011. It’s out now on Sub Pop Records.
