"ANGLES"....shipping to our customers NOW  Reply with quote  



ANNOUNCEMENT: WELCOME DAN LE SAC VS SCROOBIUS PIP TO THE SFR FAMILY!

With over four million views of their videos on YouTube, two smash U.K. singles ("Thou Shalt Always Kill," and "Beat That My Heart Skipped") and stellar U.S. performances earlier this year at Coachella and SXSW already under their belts, Britain's hottest export--the duo of DAN LE SAC VS. SCROOBIUS PIP—have announced the inking of a deal with Strange Famous Records for the U.S. release of their debut album ANGLES.

Releasing on September 2, 2008, ANGLES combines witty and shockingly spot-on decrees from the mind of vocalist Pip with producer le sac's mesmeric electro-blessed beats.

Dan le sac vs Scroobius Pip burst onto the U.K.'s independent rap scene last year with their thinking man's anthem, "Thou Shalt Always Kill". The song quickly became the most publicly requested track on XFM's Xposure show. Rave reviews followed, with The Guardian (London) endorsing it as "2007's first underground anthem" and NME enthusing "Scroobius Pip, you've written the Track Of The Year. Thou shalt buy this song and listen to it every day until the sun swallows the earth." Radio rotation rocketed with BBC Radio 1's Zane Lowe naming it the "Hottest Track in The World Right Now," and later his "Single Of The Week."

In constant contention with perceived wisdom and at issue with the sanctity of pop-culture's sacred cows, [dan le sac Vs Scroobius Pip have become the new faces of 'outsider pop.' Their towering structures of Casio-enthused electro-hip-pop are alien to the conventions of radio programming, and their lyrics even dare to ask questions of themselves and the listener. ANGLES represents a broad, deep and thrilling indictment of mediocrity, enthused with a wit and hubris that is entirely their own.

In conjunction with the release of Angles, dan le sac vs Scroobius Pip will return to North America for 19-date run with Strange Famous label mate B. Dolan. Their string of live shows, which consist of miscellaneous props, humor, and crushing instrumental breakdowns, kicks off September 14 at the Monolith Festival in Morrison, CO and includes their first-ever stops in Madison, Minneapolis, Ames, Boston, Portland and more. The trek also includes two nights at the Mercury Lounge in New York City and returns to cities like Los Angeles, Austin, Chicago and San Francisco.

Both the CD and Digital versions of ANGLES will be available at www.SFRstore.com, with a special pre-order deal at the reduced rate of $11.99 available now! Every pre-sale comes complete with a slick yet tasteful SFR sticker. CD comes with a lyric booklet in case you're having trouble with the accent.

Dan Le Sac Vs Scroobius Pip is cool, but their name is tooooo hard to spell and remember. What do those words mean?

I just looked at the SFR CD section and there's tons of non-SFR stuff in there. Do you have to get permission to sell other people's albums? I don't understand how these things work. It's weird to see Illmatic and Liquid Swords and other stuff in there.

we're not only a record label, we're also an online store.

so when we sell non-SFR cds, we order and sell products like any other store you buy from. except better.

If they are bringing props for their live show, then the B. Dolan carnival of terror MUST happen.

What are you going to do on a tour with all of those limey bastards B.? Is your tea and crumpet game up to snuff?

If they ask you about football, tell them United rules, and they can stuff it if they don't like it.

If they ask about football, tell them that Brett Favre should stay retired.
