I'm not sure what got me thinking of this song, but to me it's a darn near perfect piece of poppy New Wave bliss. The band responsible for this song is Dallas, Texas' own Black Tie Dynasty. From what I gather from a bit of lazy Googling the band broke up in 2009 and then had a "reunion show" in early 2010 and has performed as recently as April of this year. I get the feeling that they have not lived up to their own expectations in regard to commercial success but they did produce this song and that's enough for me.
While doing my weekly record shopping I came across a few EPs from Processory, a new project from prolific Finnish producers Jori Hulkkonen and Jerry Valuri. Processory's output is a perfect balance of goth, shoegaze, and new wave, bringing to mind acts such as Slowdive, Xymox, and the more introspective work of Peter Murphy. While most of the original tracks are more suited for lounging, remixes of Processory's tracks by Aeroplane and Hercules & Love Affair provide us with some great dancefloor fodder. I've posted up a free download of "Non-Aggression Principle" below. For those of you looking for something a bit more dancefloor friendly, you can check out a video of one of the Aeroplane Remixes of "Nightfall" AND get a free download of the track
