Saint Etienne – “I’ve Got Your Music (Golden Filter Remix)”

Cosmopolitan British dance-pop pioneers Saint Etienne have a new album called Words And Music By Saint Etienne coming out later this month, and we’ve already heard the early tracks “Tonight” and “Answer Song.” New York disco crew the Golden Filter have remixed another track, “I’ve Got Your Music,” and we’ve got their six-minute-plus reworking below.

The Golden Filter – “Kill Me” Video (NSFW)

The Golden Filter’s new video for “Kill Me” features a mother’s love for her son veer into some pretty twisted places. NSFW for blood and some other somewhat graphic sequences. I Googled “reverse Oedipus complex” and came up with “Jocasta complex,” so, yeah, it’s dark! Watch the High5Collective-directed clip below. More »

Hear Fujiya & Miyagi, Golden Filter Cover New Order

The latest issue of Mojo comes with a CD of various different bands covering songs from New Order’s beyond-awesome 1983 New Order album Power, Corruption & Lies, as well as the singles from that era of the band’s evolution. We’ve already posted Destroyer’s version of “Leave Me Alone,” and now we’ve got two more. Click… More »

Stereogum Monthly Mix: December 2010

Appropriately, and by design, the December edition of our Monthly Mix is the iciest. In the comments of the last installment Scott joked about me doing an “all black metal” mix, but as you’ll notice when you read through the below tracklist, I opted to go for darkness in different corners. In case you missed… More »

Golden Filter Cover Psychic TV

To help ring in the holidays, the Golden Filter covered Psychic TV’s “White Nights” from the band’s 1983 second album Dreams Less Sweet, a collection that did, in fact, include contributions from the recently departed Peter Christopherson. The original re-appropriated dialogue from Rev. Jim Jones’s so-called “death tapes.” As the Golden Filter note in their… More »

The Golden Filter Remix the morning benders

You’ve heard “Excuses” a lot of times and in a few different ways by now, so what’s one more? The Golden Filter’s remix has some unique features though, like the extra snares around the kick drum, and the waltz-like middle section that breaks up the dancefloor blocks. Listen, and grab it in exchange for your… More »

Yeasayer – “Madder Red (The Golden Filter Remix)”

In March we heard Doctor Rosen Rosen’s remix of Odd Blood lament “Madder Red,” but it’s time for Secretly Canadian to release a “Madder Red” single, so shiny and shadowy NYC disco crew — and remix champions — the Golden Filter were called in to transform the track into a dance-floor epic. More »

The Golden Filter – “Hide Me (Peter Bjorn & John’s Hortlax Cobra Remix)”

The Golden Filter reworked “Lay It Down” for Peter Bjorn & John, so PBJ returned the favor with this remix of the NYC duo’s “Hide Me” single. The original “Hide Me” comes off both delicate and strong, gossamer vocals with a hit-the-(New York) streets beat on it. Peter Bjorn & John’s Hortlax Cobra remix take… More »

The Golden Filter – “Voluspa” Video

New York disco crew the Golden Filter introduced us to their official full-length debut Voluspa via the updated version of “Hide Me,” but it’s the icy title track that gets the video. As always, Penelope and Stephen’s aesthetic sense is impeccable (and right up my alley): A muted walk/bow in the snow, a dead tree… More »

The Golden Filter – “Hide Me”

With their carefully sustained clandestine aesthetic and tendency toward darker but still deeply jubilant dance music, the Golden Filter are, in one sense or another, the NYC version of the Knife. And, yeah, in other senses they’re not. As far as Big Apple groups go, though, Penelope and Stephen do an admirable job of getting… More »

Golden Filter’s Voluspa Revealed

The veiled, aesthetically rigorous NYC disco crew has announced its full-length debut Voluspa, out 4/26 on Brille. Hear a bit of the single “Hide Me” and watch a lovely mountain climb at More »

New Golden Filter Video – “Thunderbird”

The Golden Filter, who made beautiful music in the shadows of our CMJ party, maintain the mystery in this aesthetically tight (see “Sold Gold“) Warran Wright-directed video for “Thunderbird.” When we first posted the track, I thought it was helpful to offer up Penelope and Stephen’s (or their label’s) background thoughts on the song. It’… More »

CMJ ’09: Stereogum/Believer Showcase @ Studio At Webster Hall, NYC 10/20/09

Thanks to all who came and helped us usher in CMJ week at our kick-off party with the Believer last night. Everyone had fun! We think! Big thanks to the Studio staff and of course the bands — Glasser (backed by Tanlines), Free Energy, The Golden Filter, and Cold Cave, in order of appearance –… More »

New Golden Filter – “Thunderbird”

It’s easy to think of the Golden Filter primarily as a remix project because they do a lot of them. That said, the New York “discopop” duo of Penelope and Stephen (and other live folks) sound good doing their own stuff, too. Take a listen to “Thunderbird,” for instance. Their label notes:

The Golden Filter Remix Empire Of The Sun

Between their reworkings for PB&J, Polly Scattergood, and Little Boots, NYC duo the Golden Filter have offered a pleasant reminder that not all remixes have to be inconsequential publicity vehicles. This pass at Empire Of The Sun’s “We Are The People” completes the set before the Filter focus on their own stuff. If you’ve bee… More »

Golden Filter, Fred Falke Remix Little Boots’ “New In Town”

BBC, NME, and Kid Cudi-approved electro-inscribed British vocalist Victoria Hesketh, aka Little Boots, is getting serious remix action via prolific New York disco crew the Golden Filter and French house producer Fred Falke for “New In Town,” the first single from her debut full-length Hands. Surprisingly in the age of disposable, superfluous remixes (seriously, not… More »

New Polly Scattergood – “Please Don’t Touch (The Golden Filter Pop Mix)”

The Golden Filter were a necessary dose of late-night sexy-time dance music when we encountered them in Austin, and although their own jams are well worth investigating, their name and dusky disco vibe are perfectly paired for a remix crew. To wit: we’ve seen PB&J’s “Lay It Down” pass through the Golden Filter, as well… More »

SXSW 2009: Thursday In Photos

By Amrit Singh & Brandon Stosuy
Yesterday started off bright, early, and ecstatic with NJ’s Roadside Graves at Peckerheads. The band seduced a 2PM crowd into hooting, hollering, do-sa-do-ing, and otherwise pretending it was after midnight to tracks both new (“Far And Wide,” “My Father Sat Me Down,” “Ruby”) and old (“Family And Friends,” “Radio”).

SXSW 2009: Wednesday In Photos

SXSW 2009 opened with a bit of bad luck turned good: It was too foggy for our flight to land in Houston, so they re-routed us directly to Austin, cutting out the layover, etc. Not all the passengers were happy, but the 50-something of us who listed Austin as final destination arrived in the sunny,… More »
