James Ford and Jas Shaw, the producer-DJs that comprise the 2-headed dancefloor force that is Simian Mobile Disco will release their sophomore album Temporary Pleasure August 18. Following their 2007 dancefloor-centric debut, Attack Decay Sustain Release, this new effort is, according to Jas Shaw, “aimed squarely at the boudoir” and “for all the ladeez out there.” SMD will definitely be heading out on tour in support of Temporary Pleasure, but dates are still forthcoming.
James and Jas do have the following gigs confirmed for DJ sets:
Aug 6 – Ogden – Denver, CO
Aug 7 – Lollapalooza – Chicago, IL
Aug 9 – Jelly NYC Pool Party @ Williamsburg Waterfront – NYC
For those who simply can’t wait to hear new SMD, here’s a video for “Audacity of Huge” from the forthcoming Temporary Pleasure for all to behold and enjoy. There’s also a free download of the Naum Gabo Remix of “Audacity of Huge” here.
