When Doves Get Married

So Prince takes a stand against gay marriage, and all of a sudden you don't wanna hear what it sounds like when doves cry. Who can blame you? Luckily, La Roux has the alternative. Coming out of the UK, with wind-swept hair that would make the Human League proud, this girl is serious about the 80s--from Prince to Heaven 17. La Roux's single "Quicksand" is being released on everyone's favorite Kitsuné label, which means Ladyhawke and Yelle better not get too comfortable. Her labelmates, AutoKratz, already had a shot at a remix, but I think you better hear this one in its original form.

And otherwise, yes we're predictable. Breakbot has a go at Sebastien Tellier's Roche and it's divine. I imagine he had a tough time with taking the slow R&B style of the original, but in the end it sounds like Breakbot took his own funky creation and sprinkled it with Tellier's vocals. It's just as beach-ready as the original though. See what you think.
