DESERTSBankok Hilton from Garbage Night EP & 7″ (edition of 300) directed by Alex Jones.

“As DESERTS, Sebastien Grainger and Josh Reichmann delve deeper into the garage-y post-punk inclinations of their former projects, and experiment a bit more with electronics.” – XLR8R

“A propulsive bit of strangeness that sounds like Philip Glass mashed into Bronski Beat mashed into David Bowie. From the forthcoming Garbage Night 7″ EP on sexy new Hand Drawn Dracula label.” – The Star

 

HDD is pleased to release the debut single Last Year’s Disco Guitars by Toronto’s BISHOP MOROCCO, the remix by HOLY FUCK‘s Graham Walsh and the music video directed by Eva Michon. Download REMIX HERE.
