Shura – “Touch (Delorean Remix)” (Stereogum Premiere)

"Touch," the debut single from Moscow via London singer Shura, is an expert take on that subtly funky, misty-lensed throwback pop Blood Orange does so well. The refrain -- "I want to touch you, but I'm too late/ I want to touch you, but there's history" -- exceptionally evokes the frustrated longing that accompanie… More »

HAIM – “If I Could Change Your Mind (Delorean Remix)” (Stereogum Premiere)

HAIM's breathy and elastic "If I Could Change Your Mind" is already the basis for maybe the year's greatest music video, and the house producer MK has turned in a strong remix of it. And now the hazy Spanish dance-rockers Delrean have done their own reworking, keeping the skeleton of the song intact… More »

Delorean – “Unhold (Mas Ysa Remix)” (Feat. Caroline Polachek)

Delorean's virtual-kidnapping-postponed tour in support of last year's Apar is up and running. To herald their arrival stateside, the band has released a pair of new remixes for their Caroline Polachek collab "Unhold." First up is Deloean's own remix, which replaces the original's big, shimmering guitars with booming bass and more emphasis o… More »

Empress Of – “Tristeza (Delorean Remix)”

Last year, one of the Best New Bands Empress Of (aka Lorely Rodriguez) dropped the single "Tristeza." We later heard remixes by El Guincho and Pional. Now you can hear Delorean's version. Listen below. More »

Delorean – “Destitute Time (Slow Magic Remix)”

Delorean have rescheduled their North American tour dates after that virtual kidnapping. They also just released Slow Magic's wondrous remix of Apar single "Destitute Time." It's got a funky squelching keyboard solo up against staccato synth pads that sound like steel drums, all leading into a communally sighed gang chorus overlaid by the… More »

Delorean – “Unhold” (Feat. Caroline Polachek) Video

Chairlift leader Caroline Polachek sings lead on "Unhold," a song from the Barcelona dance-rock band Delorean's new album Apar. She's also the star of the song's new video. Director Eric Epstein films Polachek, wearing a cape and looking like a mythical character, swanning around New York's Opus 40 sculpture park. The members of Delorea… More »

Delorean Suffer “Virtual Kidnapping” In Mexico

This past weekend, the members of the Barcelona-based dance-rock band Delorean suffered what's apparently been called a "virtual kidnapping." The band was in Mexico City to play the MUTEK Festival, and police say that they're now safe, but their families certainly suffered from a serious scare. More »

Stream Delorean Apar

Last week, we ran a Q&A with Ekhi Lopetegi, frontman of Barcelona's Delorean. In the interview, Lopetegi discussed the new depths the band achieved with its sophomore album Apar. We've already heard "Spirit" and "Destitute Time" from the album, but all of it is available to take in now before its release. More »

Q&A: Delorean On The Making Of Apar, Their Only Slightly More Beefed-Up And Serious Sophomore Album

On their 2010 full-length debut (the very excellent Subiza), Spanish group Delorean managed the clever hat trick of fusing what is ostensibly jangly indie-pop with Balearic rave beats and a smattering of gentle house music vibes. The album is all kinds of effervescence -- nine tracks that, when taken as a whole, provide a fantasy… More »

Delorean – “Destitute Time” Video

"Destitute Time" is the airy, fluttering new single from the breezy Barcelona dance-rock band Delorean, with Glasser on the backing vocals. The song's new CANADA-directed video flips back and forth between band-performance footage and cartoonish images of a couple going through what looks like a very complicated relationship. Check it out below. More »

Delorean – “Destitute Time”

Delorean are holding true to their promise: Both in "Spirit," the first single for their upcoming record Apar, and in "Destitute Time," their newest track, the band has indeed replaced their "chopped up female vocal samples" with "actual singers." "Destitute Time" is a low but colorful dance-pop track, and features label mate Glasser o… More »

Delorean – “Spirit”

Delorean have released new song "Spirit" along with the announcement that they will drop the album Apar this September. The record is their first full-length since 2010's Subiza and is a departure from its sound: "Leaving behind the ornate and layered production of [that record], the chopped up female vocal samples have been replaced by… More »

Remixtape Vol. 6

It's the return of Remixtape, the feature where I listen to a tremendous amount of shitty blog-bait "X Remixes Y" tracks and weed out those worth your weed-out. (Right?) Volume 6 opens with this month's undisputed champion of tracks bearing Remix in their title: the indomitable "Huzzah!" featuring a fierce set of relatively underground… More »

Glasser – “Treasury Of We (Delorean Remix)”

Two True Panther teammates hook up for this remix of Glasser's "Treasury Of We," wherein Delorean neatly weaves in its own pulsing, vibrant shimmer for mutual benefit. Glasser's stuff is sort of built for re-interpretation, perhaps none finer than Tanlines' 2009 remix of "Apply." Grab the track down below:… More »

Scenes From Coachella ’11: Kanye & More From Sunday

Sunday at Indio featured CSS, Delorean, HEALTH, Lightning Bolt, OFF!, the Strokes, a riot-free Death From Above 1979, MEN, Twin Shadow, Wiz Khalifa, and others, but it seems folks were largely focused on who Kanye may or may not bring on stage with him for his festival closing set. Justin Vernon came along for the… More »

Delorean – “Real Love” Video

Another knockout for Focus Creeps, the directorial duo of Aaron Brown and Ben Chappell who continue a streak of helming some of the year's most memorable videos. This one is for Delorean, dog lovers, and dogs that are lovers -- it's unexpected, oddly emotional, primal, absurd, violent, full of remorse and regret and longing… More »

Gucci Mane, DMC, Andrew W.K., Tim Harrington, Doug E. Fresh, The Cool Kids, Delorean & Dominique Young Unique Close Out The JellyNYC Pool Parties @ Williamsburg Waterfront 8/29/10

And so ended the Pool Parties, at least in the form in which we know them. That is to say, they ended with fun and sunny sets from the previously confirmed Florida booty rap party starter Dominique Young Unique and Barcelona's blissed out dance rock blog-beaters Delorean, and a series of special guests that ra… More »

The xx – “Shelter (John Talabot Feel It Too Remix)”

Barcelona-based DJ dude John Talabot dabbles in house and the naturally occurring sunbleached sounds of the domestic scene he's taken root in, a combo making him a natural ally of Delorean's. Last I saw him, he DJd before and after that band's set at the True Panther-curated MoMA PS1 WarmUp kick off -- today he… More »

Delorean – “Real Love” & Many Great Remixes

The situation is this: You should have Subiza, because we've gushed enough, and because you like good music, and because they turned a listening room near you into a blissed out crowd surf party where European dance music was splayed and sifted through a sieve of house and indie rock Balearic-influenced low blood pressure… More »

Pitchfork Music Festival 2010: Saturday Recap

A lot of times I compare live performances to how that band sounds on their album. At Pitchfork Festival, Saturday was really about how artists worked with the big crowd and the daytime heat (the latter was big factor yesterday as well). Delorean, for example, sounded great, but their early set could only get… More »
