Digitalism's new track, "Electric Fist," has a title that's all too fitting. The German duo kick off the electro cut – which they and collaborator Mike Diamond of Blood Diamonds impressively created in only a few hours – by packing in whirling bass and meaty thumps with snappy drum claps. But the smooth grooves soon melt into grimy synths, and Digitalism crank up the intensity with a morphing electro assault that'll crack craniums.

"Electric Fist" will be on Digitalism's upcoming EP, Lift, out September 30th.

“Long Walk Home”

Bruce Springsteen | 2007

When the subject of this mournful song returns home, he hardly recognizes his town. Springsteen told Rolling Stone the alienation the man feels is a metaphor for life in a politically altered post-9/11 America. “Who would have ever thought we’d live in a country without habeas corpus?” he said. “That’s Orwellian. That’s what political hysteria is about and how effective it is. I felt it in myself. You get frightened for your family, for your home. And you realize how countries can move way off course, very far from democratic ideals.”
