God love 'em they've had their ups and downs. Regardless of the naysayers, I reckon this year's "Invaders Must Die" has been a definite return to form. No coincidence perhaps that the rave samples have started to creep back in. Rewind back to 1995 however, and it's a mystery to me why today's remix didn't seem to get a major UK release other than on this compilation.

Now this is an unusual one - I did a little research for a change! Turns out that Tom Smith, lead singer of Editors, guests on Cicada's new album "Roulette" which came out earlier this year (and you can buy here via iTunes). I actually bought Cicada's debut album on the strength of the two Editors remixes and a Depeche Mode remix they produced, but was bitterly disappointed with the second rate album I received. My opinion is reserved on their difficult second album at the moment but from the promotional videos kicking around, it looks like they are now travelling down the euro-pop in a cool kind of Annie / Royksopp / Robyn kind of way.
