We’re just spreading a little Friday joy to your workspace. Yea, we like the idea of Remix Fridays. Do you? Here’s our first installment that we cannot stop listening to. The Drums “Forever and Ever Amen” remixed by Thieves Like Us. Let this song help you through the rest of your workday and into the weekend.
….yep and our little heads just exploded. Two of the hottest bands to come out of the indie scene in quite some time have announced that they will be doing a co-headlining tour in the fall with each other. The Drums, who started gaining attention at CMJ 2008, and Surfer Blood, who started being a blogger’s dream at CMJ 2009 (Yea we did their first ever interview. Jealous?), are taking the nation by storm for about two solid months. Hipsters everywhere are celebrating we’re sure of it. Since their CMJ hype, The Drums have become one of the most talked about band in the UK and Surfer Blood have become the most notable band of the year with their debut, Astrocoast (Kanine).
The tickets will be on sale TOMORROW MORNING, and they are expected to go fast. This may be the hottest show of the fall. The Drums and Surfer Blood hit up Webster Hall in NYC on October 22nd. This does sound like a CMJ showcase to us. Why not? It’s what launched both of them in a big way. Surfer Blood is also set to play NYC on October 19th, the first day of CMJ. Hmmmm…..

The Drums – Forever And Ever Amen (Thieves Like Us Remix)
The Drums – Forever And Ever Amen (Thieves Like Us Remix) by ModernMysteryBlog
Last summer all of the buzz in the indie community seemed to be the Brooklyn based band, The Drums. Their first single “Let’s Go Surfing,” was hailed as the anthem of the summer by many. What made it so good was it’s retro vibe and Jonathan Pierce’s catchy pop voice.
Flash forward to almost a year later and The Drums are preparing to release their debut record on Moshi Moshi Records titled The Drums. The band just released their newest video for the track “Forever and Ever Amen,” and it’s quite impressive, and yes, a bit retro looking. Can anyone say The Smiths? The video also features the guys playing inside an American Legion to a bunch of unruly teen center kids. Wow, talk about bringing back junior high/high school memories here for me. This is how shows in the New York suburbs went down in those days.
