Holy Fuck, Daytrotter!

Earlier this summer the ever-great website/recording studio/illustrated music journal called Daytrotter featured one of my favorite acts from north of the border, Holy Fuck:
"... the Canadian experimentalists belong to the smirk. They belong to the part of mankind that always considers choices and options to be the most attractive possibility. They might even set up ramps and try to jump cars on their bikes or schemingly toast ants with magnifying glasses. They subscribe to leisure exploration of sounds and noises and they are all card-carrying members of Tinkerers Anonymous, a group that prides itself in constructive and unending fiddling and enhancement activities that could lead to developments in audio."
They cut four live tracks in the studio, including the previously unreleased "Latin." It's yet another profitable outcome of Holy Fuck's beat-filled electronic experimentations. Hear it below, and visit the Daytrotter session for more.
I'm also re-posting this re-mix, because I'm quite fond of it. Get yours here.

Mr. Curiosity said...

A man walked into a bank, got in line, then pulled out a gun and robbed the place.

Before making his exit, he turns around to the next customer in line and asks:

"Did you see me Rob this Bank?"

The customer replies "Well...yes."

The bank robber raises his gun, points it at his head and shoots him.

He quickly moves to the next customer in line and says to the man,

"Did you see me Rob this Bank?"

The man calmly responds, "No, but my wife here did."
