We still have a couple more months before Late of the Pier releases its debut full-length, Fantasy Black Channel, but the band has been generously sharing bits and pieces of the album with the populace, throwing several tracks up on its MySpace page, unleashing this hot remix, as well as another single, “Heartbeat,” which we’ve put up today. The latter is a jumbled offering of synthesizers and guitars that shows off why these four lads are one of the few dance/rock hybrid fans worth following closely. The Erol Alkan-produced album, recorded at the band’s home studio in Nottingham, will be available in full on January 13. Photo by Jon Bergman.
