I've been listening to the new Armand van Helden mix cd today. It comes out on May 4 and will be called New York: A Mix Odyssey. I'm amazed that this is actually Armand. There's a lot more punk influence in there than I would expect. Of course, it's all mixed in with retro house and electro tracks. There's also a track from the new Felix da Housecat album, Devin Dazzle and the Neon Fever. The song is called Cyberwhore (Watching Cars Go By) and if it's any indication of the rest of the album, Felix's best stuff is yet to come. I'll be seeing him perform live at Homelands outside of London this year. But onto your mp3 of the day.

Zero G Web actually beat me to this, but I thought I'd post it anyway. The latest Res DVD contains a track from the new Tortoise album, but because of a glitch (at least on my copy), the song repeats itself continuously. Fortunately, this is one of the best Tortoise tracks I've ever heard so I wasn't too bothered by this. Even better, Thrill Jockey has put the same track up as a free download. I don't know what it is about this track that I love so much, but here it is.
