The iJamming! Weekly Download: The Juan MacLean


Not going to take too long to talk this one up. In essence, DFA’s other superstars, The Juan MacLean, have just dropped a fresh MP3 over at rcrdlbl.com for free download. “Find A Way” is everything you’d hope for from the act that recently gave us the aptly-named “Happy House” this past year (and, before that, way back in 2005, the excellent Less Than Human album): a solidly pumping, exuberantly contemporary, very-LCD like piece of DFA electro-funk-house that comes on like it’s summer all over again. “Find A Way” is NOT from the act’s forthcoming album. Apparently, it didn’t make the grade – which speaks volumes for what did. The Future Will Come will see release early in 2009 and if you just can’t wait, the Juan MacLean are currently on tour, where you can pick up “Find A Way” on a tour-only EP of the same name. My own memories of seeing McLean’s cross-genre act, at the Camp Bisco festival here in the Catskills, and before that alongside Hot Chip, Sia, Radio 4 and Small Sins in Austin, are fond ones indeed. Check the myspace page for full tour dates – and a remix of another new song, “The Simple Life.” And follow this link for your free MP3 download of “Find a Way.”
