The Believer magazine also has a CD available with this month's issue, and it features a version of "Hydra Fancies" (probably a raw mix) and another track on which Kevin collaborated (on what level, no clue). The CD was curated by Janelle Monae's side-kick Chuck Lightning. Time to check out your favorite newsstand.
I've been hearing great things about this track - and contrary to Coquet Coquette everybody seems to love it, but I personally have only listened to it once (because I'm weak), but I'm trying (hard, very hard) not to listen to any bits and save the surprise for when I get my CD and put it on from start to finish. I'd be happy to skip the heat wave and fast forward to September 3rd. It just can't come soon enough.

The band also took part in an official photo shoot yesterday, and this is how the whole oM family wants to look like going into the False Priest media madness. They want to look, well, white. Pure and innocent in a totally creepy way. Or maybe they want to look dead. What do you think?

You can also get two different remixes of Coquet Coquette in digital format, on emusic if you're smart enough to have an account, otherwise I'm sure it's on iTunes, if you like to get ripped off, and use a site that also rips off the artists. But hey, I hear Steve Jobs needs the money to invent phones you can't phone with. Not that I'm complaining, when I die I want to be cremated with my iPhone so I keep on updating this blog from the other side. But, back to the topic at hand, the artwork is amazing. What a shame they don't plan on releasing this as a 7 or 12"

EDIT (July 13th): Yip Deceiver, one of the mysterious artists who got to remix Coquet Coquette turns out to be Davey's new musical endeavor. Check him/them out!


  1. No Chicago Dates? WTF. I might have to hightail it to Milwaukee?

  2. You won't be the only one making this trip! :)
    I'm guessing this is just the first couple of legs of this tour... there may have more to come in November & December.

  3. shows in Northern California? I'm in shock.. well, I have been meaning to take a trip to L.A... holy crap I'm so excited!!!! Archandroid and False Priest noooooo waaayyyyy and i LOVE the new track AHHHHHHHHHHHHH

  4. WOAH I'm glad I check their website! There is a October 29th show in San Francisco at The Warfield.. God I hope Janelle is there.

  5. Yeah, I do have the date on the sidebar but unfortunately I did a bit of a hatchet copy/paste job for the main post. Sorry about that.

    Janelle won't play with them in SF because she's playing a festival in New Orleans on that one day.
