Florene's upcoming full-length on Waaga Records won't be released until April 27, which seems like a long time to wait for Homemade Extacy, but maybe I wouldn't know.

Anyway, thankfully, none of us will have to wait until the end of April to hear more new material from the Denton-based experimental electro duo. Earlier this week, Florene's Aaron Mollet and Gavin Guthrie finished mixing and mastering Mind-Surfer, an EP release the band had in the works pre-Waaga. Which means that the band can now get back to work putting the finishing touches on the act's full-length debut for Waaga.

Mind-Surfer's six-songs are being released by Skrot Up, a cassette-tape only record label out of Denmark. Yes, cassette only. Which totally explains the dimensions of the cover image you see to the right. But, for those of you who don't want to go buy a pawnshop tape deck, don't panic: Mind-Surfer will include a download code for the cassette deck-less. Skrot Up is also about to release another cassette from Mollet's solo project, Customer.

And Florene was kind enough to send along "Parc Bitch" for our readers' listening pleasure. It's the second song on the EP. (So, that's Side A, right?).

Check it out after the jump.

According to Guthrie, Homemade Extacy probably won't be back in time for NX35, where Florene plays just before Brooklyn's own Neon Indian. But, Scrot Up should have the cassettes back in time for South by Southwest, which is great because Florene's already booked to play a hefty eight shows in Austin between Tuesday and Saturday of SXSW, including the 20 Jazz Funk Great's showcase, as well as Scrot Up's.

For more new tracks, surf over to Florene's MySpace page and check out "Short Wave 5.5." another new track on the Mind-Surfer EP. And, on Customer's page, Mollet's uploaded "Ghettosexxx" and "No Sure"--both on his own upcoming Stolen, according to the artwork below.
