You Don't Have to Settle

It’s time for another edition of the YDH2S newsletter, where we give you the scoop on a ton of dance parties that we put on ourselves or think you’ll want to hit up.

We’re going to be expanding this newsletter in the coming weeks, so expect more parties and probably more frequent newsletters too. As such there’s a ton going on in June so continue on for the parties.

You can subscribe to the newsletter, follow us on Twitter, and follow us on Tumblr or read this newsletter on Tumblr, eschewing the mere idea of subscriptions. Faugh!).

Feeling Gloomy

The Rebirth of HAPPY HOUSE

Four years ago, we created something pretty awesome in south Brooklyn. From The Bell House and Union Hall to Le Poisson Rouge and whatever gypsy bars would let us play music, we were fortunate enough to groove with so many of you. It’s almost been a year since we last played, but we’re anxious to dance with you again.

In short: come dressed to sweat and let your freak flag fly. We’ll make sure that no matter what you’re into, we’ll have something for that disco booty of yours. (Unless that “something” is dubstep. We digress.)

Feeling Gloomy


We all heard the news, Morrissey cancelled his whole dang tour. Of course he did. We had been planning on spending the evening reveling in the misery of missing the show, but now we can ALL do that, even those of us who had the cheddar to afford those ticket prices.

As such, if you can show the door person your Morrissey ticket, we’ll let you in for half off! Fate giveth, and fate taketh away…


Well, we’re doing a Feeling Gloomy the exact same night that Morrissey plays the Barclays Center. Some of us have seen him live, some haven’t, but none of us wanted to pay the mega-high cover charge to see him in the equivalent of a giant arena, so… we didn’t get tickets. And now we have FOMO.

WTF is FOMO you ask? For those not into internet abbreviating lingo it means Fear Of Missing Out. Like, we didn’t get tickets, but we’re also very concerned we’ve missed a life-changingly gloomy experience. So we have one course of action:


  •    + a Morrissey Soul(less) Train (exactly what it sounds like)
  •    + a bad poetry contest & recital
  •    + Morrissey-themed baked goods
  •    + Morrissey/Smiths concert footage projected onto your writhing, dancing, oscillating wildly bodies
  •    + Your favorite depressed DJs Gordon and Nathaniel Gloom playing a lorry full of Morrissey & Smiths songs, plus all your favorite anglophilic, gloomy faves

Feeling Gloomy Gets Morrissey FOMO

Cat Power – “Manhattan (Cousin Cole’s NYC Mix)”

October 2

Cat Power just released a new collection of songs called Sun, her first in six years, and NYC-based DJ/producer Cousin Cole took a stab at remixing one of the album’s standout tracks, “Manhattan.” The result is pretty stellar, preserving the spirit of the original, with its piano plinks and digital beat backdrop, but with a little added jitteriness in those pops and clicks, along with the occasional airy synth blowing through from time to time. It’s perfect for the Saturday night nightcap or the Sunday morning lazy haze.

You can grab a free copy of this track right over here.

February 21

Arthur Russell spent endless hours in the 80s riding the Staten Island ferry by himself. He’d float back and forth over murky New York harbor, Walkman cranked, spare pair of AAs in his ski vest pocket, listening to unmixed dubs of his latest batch of tunes. Maybe the steady churn and breeze reminded him of those winds that swept through Iowa cornfields when he was a kid. Maybe he just liked the view. On at least one of these rides, he hit play and a demo of “That’s Us/Wild Combination” started up. It was a sweet-tempered piece of pop with a tempo aimed at the dance floor, but the overall sound still felt a little shy- more bedroom solo dance party than blown out club. Thirty years later, enter Estate, an electro collective from Minneapolis, who pop the cassette from Arthur’s Walkman, unspool the tape from its plastic chassis and stream it out across a solid piece of propulsive bass and glittering synth machinery. Arthur’s beautiful ideas are still intact, they’ve just been bolstered to meet the needs of a packed floor bouncing its way through Saturday night.
