A new track has been added to my list of Current Favorites. Strictly Ballroom is a quite nice rocking tune from new Danish band Dead Smiling Pirates. There is definitely some Green Day/The Offspring inspiration here, and the song has been very positively rated over at GarageBand.com. The self-financed debut album is produced by Flemming Rasmussen (anyone remember him?) and the expected date of release is January 1 (???).

Saturday we bought the MGP 2006 CD for our daughter. The music is horrible, but seeing her dancing and happily singing along, pretty much compensates for it!
J.A. recommends US indie/electronica act Letting Up Despite Great Faults. The band's list of influences is "endless", but to me the band sounds like a real pleasant mix of The Notwist and The Radio Dept. The 3 tracks below are from the 7 track EP Movement, which was released in August this year.

She Wants Revenge has remixed Cut Chemist's What's the Altitude.
