DIBIDIM "Riders"
CHRIS & COSEY "Take Five"

I got completely floored today. I mean blindsided. So I did what any good blogger did and rushed to get this posted. Like within 15 minutes of hearing the band for the first time. Gosh, I hope it holds up well next week. You haven't heard of them before. They aren't playing SXSW. The only thing I know about them is that they are from the UK and the record is fairly new.

I came across Dibidim on MySpace. Yes, fucking MySpace. They have only like a thousand hits and a few friends so I guess they ain't no Arcade Fire. Where did they come from? Tell me! I listened to about 20 seconds of "I Woke Up" and I got distracted by the phone or something. But something in that 20 seconds made me go over and click it again and I got through another minute before becoming distracted again. Once I finally got to the end of the song, I was certain I'd heard this before. But I hadn't and I needed more. I searched the blogs for a freebie mp3.... nada. It's kinda got that Thompson Twins "If You Were Here" vibe to it, but only 700% cooler. They could be Air in 1983, those soothing synthesizers, filling in each black hole between hooks. Oh, and then... it hit me....

It sounds a little like Chris & Cosey, refugees from the legendary Throbbing Gristle. Well, that makes sense, Dibidim could easily slide in there on the early Mute Records' roster. "October Love Song" was a total sellout, like Ministry's With Sympathy, but I love every oscillating second of it. I know it's March, but hopefully both of these songs will come as a complete discovery for you. I need to go find the rest of this Dibidim record now and hope that's it's every bit as Juno 106'd out as I want it to be.

i like dibidim from norway,maybe.
their next single & album will be released from my favourite Japanese Indie label named "every conversation".

Hey thanks for the post on dibidim, Riders is the album I hoped Air would make. Really just great. By the way emusic has the album for download, and if you have never used emusic you can download the album for free, just cancel your account before the trial period ends and you wald away with 25 free tracks just like that.
