You really ought to already know about these. It’s okay if you don’t; we’re forgiving. But set yourself on the right path.
Water Gun Water Gun Sky Attack’s April 24th release of the Everything Will Happen EP. It is only two tracks, but between them, they have enough electropopfreakout layers built in to rival even the most overlong club singles, and you don’t even have to sit for two minutes of bad-dj-accommodating steady bass drum pulse before the first synth line creeps in!
Our own Stratosfear collaborated with multinstrumentalist Qualia to bring you Pieces, a gorgeous major-chord piano-and-verb bliss-fest.
You should listen to both of these things.
Flying Batteries have finally joined the 21st century and created a Youtube account, where you can find videos you wouldn’t be able to find elsewhere, including live clips and exclusive songs. You can subscribe to Flying Batteries here

For more frequent updates, you can follow our Facebook page… because our members know how to update that.
We at the Hai are now over one (1) year (365 days) into our little (less than 4 inches) adventure, and we’ve got another compilation for you lovely people.
No cheap self reference on the album name.
No original songs.
No elaborate artwork.
Just 9 awesome cover songs by A Problem Like Maria, Flying Batteries, Water Gun Water Gun Sky Attack, Snailhead and New Motive Power.
Artists The Hai covered include the Touhou Project, The Modern Lovers, LCD Soundsystem, Adventure Time and a song from the Mulan soundtrack, plus more.
If this isn’t enough to coerce you into listening, downloading, rocking out with your friends and generally having a good time doing so…then know only this…
It’s really ace.
