New Music First

new music first #14

A bit of a theme for today’s NMF post. Old school punky rock ‘n’ roll. Like? I do. Well written songs. All done with this kinda aggression and edginess that’s a little unrelenting. The only way.

First up we got a band called The Dig. These guys are a four-piece out of New York. They kind of have a Strokes feel about them which, is never a bad thing. Maybe it’s the whole New York thing. The guys are right in the middle of a tour with Editors and The Antlers, so for a new band, they’re doing pretty good. Good song too.

The Dig – You’re Already Gone

The Doggs are a three-piece out of Milano, Italia. Yeah, that’s right. Italy. These guys seem to have that 70’s garage punk kinda feel, and yeah, I’m guessing for the Italian music scene, they’re perhaps one of the very few who are pushing this kind of sound. The track Animal is off their self-titled EP which you can check out on iTunes

The Doggs – Animal

The Art. Well you’d think these guys are artists, as in painters. But I mean, hey, they probably chose the name because The Music was already taken. But you check out who these guys have supported…and wait for it…try Marilyn Manson, Nine Inch Nails, Sonic Youth, and The Pixies next month. These guys go pretty intense. You know, hard. Screaming style vocals. Big distortion. And what’s better is that they’re local. Newtown boys and girls.

The Art – I Wanna Know

The Twerps. Great band name. The guys are from Melbourne, and according to Triple J are becoming one of Melbourne’s favourite lo-fi pop bands. The track is actually pretty funny. Has a real old school surfer vibe which i’m liking a fair bit, probably due to the way it was recorded. Mikey Young from fellow Melbourne rockers Eddy Current Suppression Ring helped record their EP onto analogue tape. Great song. Kinda funny. Has that chilled vibe. Niiccccccceeeeee!

The Twerps – Dance Alone


new music first #13

Thought I should get some new music out of the way before the new year hits us (granted, I do have close to a week before that happens, but I wanted to get my best tracks and remixes lists out before the end of the decade).

Anyway, tracks. There’s a whole big mixture of stuff here. Just what this blog is all about i suppose…bit of everything.

First up is a bit of electronica kinda stuff. Paqman are from Melbourne/Canberra (strange mix I know.). Their track Donno is a really nice kinda chilled track that glides. umm…did i just write glides? wow. Anyway, it is a really nice track. As I look out my window now, it’s kinda warm and sunny and this track accompanies that pretty freakin well.

Paqman – Donno

Second up are a duo out of Berlin. I’m Not A Band sound kinda like a band…sorry to break that to you. Their name sounds like they belong on Kitsune. As so does their music. I love Kitsune and their Kitsune Maison compilations are always a good indication of what’s big out there. I reckon these guys might just be big.

I’m not a Band – Crazy

Third, a bit of a change of pace. Camp Out are out of California. They’re two ladies who produce really well written indie pop. Really good songs. They’re looking to release their album early in the new year, and from what I’ve heard of it, it seems really good. It sound like the sort of pop tunes that Triple J actually would play. There are obvious comparisons to Tegan and Sara for sure, but give these guys a go. Really nice stuff.

Camp Out – Car Crash

Fourth, and finally, it’s Memory Tapes, or Dayve Hawk to his folks. There’s this sub-genre that seems to be forming that’s being dubbed ‘chill-wave’. Now, since I’m a music blogger, you’d think I would be on top of it…and I know, it’s been around for a while now (well…a few months at least). People like Neon Indian, and The Babe In The Woods are sort of pushing this sound. Anway, Zan Rowe did a feature on Chill-Wave in the latest J Mag, so it must be big now. I dunno. I think I like it. As Zan says though, “Hawk is the most hi-fi (out of the ‘movement’) – but even that is a stretch.”

Memory Tapes – Bicycle

K. That’ll do the ramble for now


new music first #12

There’s been a fair bit of stuff hit de inboxu lately that I haven’t posted. So, some of this stuff isn’t that new (still reasonably new though!). But their all really good tracks deserving of some love out there in blogland.

And what’s better than a 3/4 all Australian New Music First post? Whilst I may be a little late for AusMusic Month (Triple J celebrates Australian music every November), it’s still important to push out Aussie music, especially new stuff.

(No offence to Baddies. They still rock!)

First up is a band out of Sydney. They’re called The Salvagers. When I first heard these guys, to be honest with you, I didn’t think much. But I left it on my iPod and came back to it. And man, it kinda grows. Some might find it a little soft (the track below is one of the ‘harder’ ones), but I reckon it’s pretty sweet. They’ve enlisted Lee Groves who’s worked with the amazing Bertie Blackman to produce their self titled EP, and whilst they sound nothing like Ms Blackman, the production is pretty…slick i suppose. That’s a good thing. Anyway, here’s their track Raz Girls. Good!!

The Salvagers – Raz Girls

(iTunes)

Next up is a band from Essex, UK, you know, the overseas 1/4. These dudes have that familiar british sound, kinda like Kaiser Chiefs or Franz Ferdinand. That kinda vibe. They’re called Baddies, and they’ve spent all of the UK summer doing the European festival thing and are now in Australia to do the same. Anyone going to the Purple Sneakers NYE party in Sydney or Pyramid Rock down at Phillip Island are in for a pretty brash, ballsy gig!! This is their new single called Open One Eye taken from the album Do The Job.

Baddies – Open One Eye

(iTunes)

Third on the list is a band from Melbourne called Young Heretics. These guys have done a heap of touring with other great Aussie acts like Philadelphia Grand Jury and Kid Sam. They’ve just launched their new EP entitled The Dreamers and they’ve got a pretty massive big sound that starts off soft and just builds until the whole band kicks in and greats a great, almost industrialish groove. Amazing vocals too.

Young Heretics – Bones of a Rabbit

(iTunes, BigCartel)

Last is a dude that goes by the name of Dan Sultan. Dan is from Melbourne and is a bit of a soul blues singer. I remember seeing him at St Kilda fest a few years ago, and whilst I had heard the name, I didn’t know any of his tracks. Was a little blown away though. The dude has a great voice and just kicks it hard onstage. Dan also played a part in the Before Too Long Tribute to Paul Kelly that was on a few weeks ago. You can check out the second installment of that on Triple J tomorrow night if you like. I think it’s going to be on TV soon too!! Anyway, this is the first single off his second album Get Out While You Can.

Dan Sultan – Letter

(iTunes)

K. That’ll do the ramble for now.


new music first #11

wow. It’s been a while I know. I’m in exam mode at the moment so the whole blog thing has been put on the backburner. But, I figure I should at least get one post out there for you guys! And what better than an all encompassing New Music First post. Some pretty good stuff here – eclectic. All with an electronic tinge though which is always good!

First up is a local band called Goodnight Owl. These guys are from Melbourne and they produce some pretty nice guitar pop music. But then it has something else. It’s like a great sounding acoustic track but with this awesome glitchy electro stuff beneath it. It’s a really nice blend. Great lyrics too. If you’re in Melbourne also, you should check them out – they’re playing a few shows in early December. Check out the info here.

Goodnight Owl – Maps and Compasses

(iTunes)

 

Next up is a band that’s kinda exploded in blog land. They’re called Sleigh Bells and they’re…well…i don’t know. Apart from good, they’re definitely good. Already, you can see they’ve got two sides. A loud full on blown out distorted fucking great in your face style sound. They’ve also got a great nice, sweet pop sound. I like the loud abrasive sound the best. Crown on The Ground is definitely that. Oh…and just in time for Christmas! haha…sorry…had to get that in.

Sleigh Bells – Crown On The Ground

 

Third up on the list is Fuck Buttons. I got turned on to these guys through The Sound Lab on Triple J radio here in Australia. They produce some pretty awesome glitchy techno i suppose. I don’t know really, i’m no good with genre’s. I will say that it pumps, they all grow into something really big, they’re full of massive layers of sound, and the majority of their songs are pretty long. Including the track bellow, Space Mountain.

Fuck Buttons – Space Mountain

(iTunes)

 

Fourth on my little list of tricks is a band out of Brooklyn. Sensual Harassment are they’re name and they’ve been around for a short while. They cited (the M A A M F loved) Miami Horror as a band they like in the email they sent me so I thought I should give them a shot. They’re track, Daddy Long Legs is great. Is funky, slow groove, comes to an almighty climax mid way and keeps it going throughout.

Sensual Harassment – Daddy Long Legs

(iTunes)

Last on ze listo is The Swiss. You guys may have heard of these dudes before. They’re from South Australia but we won’t hold that against them because they produce some pretty awesome DISCO! Movement 1 has been around for a little while already and it’s part of a big Movement EP with three movements. Other than that, they’ve also remixed Ladyhawke’s Magic which I’m sure some of you have heard. Hell, they’re even supporting Ms Hawke on her current national tour. Must be love. Anyway, you should all check these dudes out. They’re the Next Crop feature artist today for Aus Music Month on Triple J too. Check out a new track called Bubble Bath on the Next Crop/Home & Hosed blog too. Bloody killer.

The Swiss – Movement I

(Really Real Records)

Anyway, that’s it. Mammoth post, so hopefully that will do you for a while and I can get back to my study. Last exam is on the 23rd, so expect a lot more amazing sounds after that.

K. That’ll do the ramble for now.


new music first #10

just as long as it's not on the new music...

ok. so some new music…there’s been so much going on lately with festival announcements, awesome remixes, album releases, killer new leaked tracks. There’s also been a lot of personal external factors (by that I mean, outside of the music industry). Uni is nearly finished, got one exam and a 4,500 paper due in the next few weeks as well as the research i’m doing as part of my internship with the Inspire Foundation. It’s all just nuts. Keeping on top of it all is a little difficult, but yeah, in a few weeks, i’ll be free!! Anyway, the reason I rant about stress is because i’m going to keep the blog posts to a minimum for the next few weeks. I’ll still post, trust me…and i’ll probably post more than I should. But yeah, she’ll be right.

Anywho, new music aye?!

K. First up is Tegan and Sara. Year, these guys have been around for a while and I never really took much notice of them. They’ve been playing their new track Hell on Triple J pretty continuously. I like it. Reminds me of Magic Dirt, especially the vocals – reminds me of Adalita (Magic Dirt singer) a hell of a lot. haha…get it? ‘hell’ of a lot??!! funny aren’t i? …yeah…ahh…oh shit.

Tegan and Sara – Hell (iTunes)

Next up is a band out of Belgium called Showstar. They’re pretty good, and they write a killer pop song. They’re third album Think Ringo is set to be released in January…and yeah, don’t know much about these guys. They’ve only got one track up on their myspace…but if Gold Mine is anything to go off, then they’re a band to check out.

Showstar – Gold Mine (radio edit) (iTunes)

Third on the list is a dude with a ridiculously long name. The Pains Of Being Pure At Heart is from New York and is bloody good. Dreamish pop that kinda washes over you. Sure, the intro sounds like Smashing Pumpkins, but it’s still great. Could be a fave of the year maybe.

The Pains Of Being Pure At Heart – Higher Than The Stars (iTunes)

Megan Washington is from Brisbane and goes by the name Washington. Original right? Well…yeah, kinda I suppose. Her music is definitely original though. Bad segue? Yup! Saw her on Spicks & Specks the other week and man, she blew me away. Freakin killer voice. Reminds me of Sarah Blasko a bit…not really a fan of Ms Blasko, but Washington…hell yeah!

Washington – How to Tame Lions (iTunes)

No relation to Washington, King Washington are a crew out of LA producing some awesome singer-songwriter rock’n’roll. They’re a pretty musical bunch of fellas, and they’re bringing harmony back…yeah…

King Washington – Live On

Last up, Philadelphia Grand Jury are not from Philadelphia…funnily enough. They’re actually from Sydney. You hear the track. I’ll tell you that it’s just two fellas. Well, they’ve obviously got a drummer and others for their live show, but the mainstay is just these two blokes. They’re a massive Triple J band too…so that’s something going right for ’em.

Philadelphia Grand Jury – The Good News (iTunes)

K. That’ll do the ramble for now.


new music first #9

give in to me

ok. So, yeah, well, umm, it’s been over a month since the last one of these. I said exactly the same thing last time though, so yeah, no excuse. Been doing too many features eh!

Anyway, there’s been some great great music thrown around the blogosphere lately. Thought i’d compile a few of my faves.

First up, it’s British India. These guys are a local band who’ve been around for a while. Great sound. Saw them live at a promo gig thing a while ago and they put on a freakin solid live show. If straight up rock is your thing, then check out these boys. This is a newy of theirs. Bit of a softer sound…but still great great Aus Rock!

British India – Vanilla

(MySpace, iTunes)

The next find are a new band from Triple J Unearthed. They’re called Disco Nap. They’re from Brisbane, and there’s obvious links in their sound to Death Cab. Win win situation if you ask me! And believe it or not, Ross, the lead singer got his inspiration from the TV series Six Feet Under. Morbid right?! Yeah, well it sounds it, but their music doesn’t. Sounds great. Band to watch out for.

Disco Nap – The Soft Sell

(MySpace, Unearthed)

Got sent some this new one last week. When I started this music blog, I never thought i’d actually be sent music. It’s hard to keep up sometimes, especially with Uni and other work I gotta do (should really be doing that now actually!). The guys are from Sweeden, they’re called The Sweet Serenades. They’ve got an awesome awesome awesome sound. Reminds me of early KOL. That’s not a bad thing at all!!! Oh, and also, complete with cowbell! WIN!

The Sweet Serenades – On My Way

(MySpace, iTunes)

Finally, it’s the new one from Juggers. Dystopia is a great great album. That’s their debut, for those unaware. It was awesome, dark, doom, disco, dance rock. Impossible to pigeon hole. Their new track is a bit different. When I first heard it, I really didn’t think it was that great. But I downloaded it, and, now, I kinda like it. Sure, it’s a little different to Shadows, and 45 and Rising. Some have called it a little postrock. Not usually a fan of that genre. But, now, I just might be. People are either for or against this one. Let me know what you kats reckon!

Midnight Juggernauts – This New Technology

(MySpace, iTunes)

K. That’ll do the ramble for now.


New Music First #8

its that new super hovercraft new music vessel thing

ok…so it’s been over a month since I’ve done one of these posts…it’s not that i haven’t had any good music going lately…it’s moreso to do with the fact that I got too much good new music going! This post is a bit of a mish mash across genres but hopefully you like all. All are either from some of the new albums I’ve recently purchased or are things i’ve been sent.

and without further adoo (is that how you spell that??!!):

K.I.T – Animal

Got sent this one last week and have been meaning to post it. Is a great little electro track from three guys from Paris. I really like it. There’s something kinda familiar about this song which I really like. Check ’em out on MySpace

Tiga – Shoes

My recent post about the Leave Them All Behind III compilation talked about my new found admiration for Tiga. Go get his album Ciao! It’s bloody great. You can check out more Tiga on his MySpace or on Beatport

JET – 17

yeah yeah…i know. JET were cool for about 15 minutes when their debut album came out. And there was the much publicised fights etc etc etc. oh, and their second album tanked pretty bad. But their newy, Shaka Rock is pretty good. It’s not amazing, but it’s a good solid rock record from a pretty good Australian band. Good song too. MySpace iTunes

The Hovercrafts – Texas High

Don’t know who these dudes are? Neither did I until I heard 2009 on Triple J the other week. You should check out The Parapets EP…the band has made it available as a free download…and you can get it here. Really good Melbourne based Rock ‘n’ Roll. Niiiccceee! Also check out their MySpace

Paul Dempsey – Out The Airlock

I used to love Something For Kate when they were big (Monsters, Three Dimensions etc). Everything Is New is his first solo record…and it’s pretty good. Once again, have to thank 2009 on Triple J for the heads up on this one! It’s a bit different to S4K stuff – more singer/songwritery. Good though! Out The Airlock is one of the softer moments of the album. MySpace iTunes

So that’s it. Bit of electro goodness and a bit of good Aussie rocky stuff. Enjoy eh??!!

K. That’ll do the ramble for now.


new music first #7

kinda rad music overload

ok. so it’s a new music post and it’s all some decent electro stuff that has got me a movin lately. There’s a bit of local stuff, some US stuff, and I think some stuff from Vietnam. There’s some thumping stuff and some great chilled stuff. So, i guess by now you’ve guessed that there’s some stuff in this post.

…hmm…I’m watching the doggies absolutely kill the hawks (it’s 58 to 2 and the first quarter hasn’t even finished yet!). We’re playing bloody well. So that’s why i sound distracted.

Anyway, I’m not as excited about the tracks featured in this post as i was about the tracks i featured in my last New Music First post. But I am definately excited about the local stuff.

ok. Let’s get the ball rolling. First up is a track by the Lost Valentinos. I could’ve seen these guys at the Bacardi Express Tour earlier on this year, but having not heard any of their stuff, didn’t really bother about it. Pity. Midnights is epic – it’s so epic they’ve put it into two parts. Both parts are different in sound but you can tell that they’re both part of the same track. anyway.

Lost Valentinos – Modnights (Original Parts 1 & 2)

Second up is another local, from Sydney. Canyons signed to Modular a few months ago which means they’ll get some decent exposure. The only stuff i’ve heard of these guys is a mini track on the Bang Gang comp last year, so hearing this track was pretty exciting. This is a banging track too. Just builds and builds.

Canyons – Blue Snakes

Thirdly, a track by someone who’s name i’d seen but never actually heard. That seems to happen a fair bit to me actually. Anyway, St Vincent is from New York and is good. Very good. I only know the one track though mind you so I could be wrong. Is such a great song though so I’m not too sure if that’s possible. I think i need to buy her album!

St Vincent – Laughing With A Mouth Of Blood

Finally, a track by a band with one of the strangest names I think i’ve ever heard. I mean, what in the hell is a Black Moth Super Rainbow? Haha…who knows. And the fact that they say they’re from Vietnam has me perplexed. They do, however, make some pretty decent music. This one reminds me of All My Friends by Groove Armada a bit. I like.

Black Moth Super Rainbow – Twin of Myself

K. That’ll do the ramble for now.


new music first #6

the middle eastYves Klein Blue

Yachtdananananaykroyd300

ok. I realised I’ve been a bit slack with the new music posts. So, here is one right now. Simple.

I’m really excited about this post because I don’t know if I’ve loved every track as much before.

First up is a local band, The Middle East. Yes, you read right. Local Band. They’ve got a track called Blood. It’s one of those tracks that just sorta builds and build and makes you feel so happy towards the end.

The Middle East – Blood

(iTunes, Amazon)

Next up is another local band. I spoke about these guys a few weeks ago. They’ve got an album called Ragged & Ecstatic coming out in a few days. It is of course Yves Klein Blue.

Yves Klein Blue – Make Up Your Mind

(more deets on their website)

Third on the list is a band I spoke about a while ago as well. It’s YACHT. They’ve got an album coming out soon (It’s being released through DFA in the States next month. Nor sure about a release date for Australia though.

YACHT – The Afterlife

(can’t find a link online for the album, but you should check out the DFA webstore for more detailios)

Finally, it’s Dananananaykroyd. These guys are a band I’d always heard of but never actually heard any of their tracks. And man. What a fool I was! These guys are great. If you like that indie pop with the kinda yelling vocals then Dananananaykroyd are definately worth a check out.

Dananananaykroyd – Black Wax

(via CDWOW)

k. So that’s about it. They’re all really great tracks and it’s posts like these that make me love writing a music blog!

K. That’ll do the ramble for now.


New Music First #5

busy busy but free free

just say no to study

ok. so I’ve been a little non comital lately. I got exams on next week and i’m trying to study study study for them. There’s only two, and I’m not absolutely freaking out. But, give me time and I will I’m sure! Haha…anyway, just to keep the momentum up I thought i’d put up a post with a few tracks that i’m listening to of late. They’re all awesome of course. Hehe. Anyway, better get to it. Field independence and field dependence is calling me. oh dear.

First up is a track by a band called Hey Champ. They’re out of the states and if it wasn’t for MSotD, I don’t think I would’ve found out about them. They pretty cool indie dance stuff. But actual songs, not just a cool beat and some funky synth. Check it out here:

Hey Champ! – Cold Dust Girl

Secondo on the listeo is another band from the states. YACHT. They’re pretty good. I actually thought these guys were Australian – got that kinda sound, and I always seem to see their name on posters around the city. Anyway, great track.

YACHT – Psychic City

Third on the list is the new Jay-Z track. I don’t usually get into this sort of stuff but after NME posted it up, I thought i’d give it a listen. Is a great track too! Great sample.

Jay-Z – D.O.A (Death Of Autotune)

Next up is a tune that’s been doing the rounds for a while. It’s by a Brisbane based band called Yves Klein Blue. They are awesome. If you like what you hear, you should definately check them out!

Yves Klein Blue – Polka

So that’s it. I better get back to the study. Fun fun fun.

K. That’ll do the ramble for now.


New Music First #4

ok. My name’s Miks, and I’m a commitment-phobe. Well…not really. But, it has been a while since I’ve posted up some new music. The Mix Tape is sort of the same thing I know, but meh. This entry lists a few tracks that were part of the Mid May MIXTAPE entry too. Again, meh!

Hahahaha…ok, so here’s the list. It’s pretty good. Sounds a bit like a remix that entry. But yeah, you know what word I’m going to say to that.

  • In For The Kill (Lifelike Remix) – La Roux (Good song! Never really thought I’d get into these guys. But, I am. I think their appearance on the new Kitsune Compilation may help along with the La Roux love! Also, Lifelike has been getting around. Not in a sexual sense. Obviously. Actually, I’m not sure…ok…umm this is getting weird. haha)
  • Too Fake – Hockey (Posted this last week I know. But it’s still definately a favourite track at the moment. Great band. Looking forward to hearing some more stuff from these guys.)
  • Kids – Chiddy Bang vs. MGMT (Found this on Hype Machine. This guy rips this song in half and makes it Hip Hop. And, although it sounds pretty mainstream, is a fun track.)
  • Symphonies (Passion Pit Remix) – Dan Black (Obviously, anything Passion Pit is popular at the moment. They’re probably about the biggest band of the moment hands down (Grizzly Bear are probably a close second). Don’t know much about Dan Black…other than this is a good track)
  • It’s Not My Problem (Thin White Duke Remix) – Sneaky Sound System (I use to love these guys a few years ago. Then they got a little commercial (Not that that’s a bad thing) and I just didn’t like their stuff as much. I downloaded this track off a whim…and am pretty impressed. Connie Mitchell can still sing damn well. Cooooool voice!)
  • Out Of Control (Acoustic) – Dash & Will (Once again, I downloaded this track because it was free. And, i’ve liked some of Dash & Will’s stuff. Kinda like a grown up Veronicas (Can’t believe I just wrote that. Argh). But they’re better than the Veronicas. Much better)
  • One Week Of Danger – The Virgins (Why the hell aren’t these guys massive? From what I gather, they must be pretty big in the UK and the US going by song polls and best of 2008 album write ups. Hopefully they’ll start getting more radio play here. Great sound.)
  • Bulletproof – La Roux (Hmm…I must like these guys. Maybe I should get their album. Bulletproof is their latest single, and is, I think, their best one so far.)
  • Lisztsomania (Yuksek Remix) – Phoenix (Another massive band of the moment. And with fellow Frenchman Yuksek behind this remix, the song rips ‘grand temps’. I was never that good at French at high school.)
  • Something Good Can Work – Two Door Cinema Club (Good, fun sounding track. Appears on the new Kitsune compilation which comes out next month I think)
  • Laughing With – Regina Spektor (Cool. Got that ‘quirk’ factor that sets her apart from other piano based singer songwriters. I fell in love with her track Sampson a few years back and haven’t looked back!)

Anyway, that’s it. Check them out. Buy their stuff. Is an eclectic list this week (I’m trying to make this thing a weekly thing you see…will it happen?? Wait and see I suppose.)

K. That’ll do the ramble for now.


New Music First #3

ok. So I have been listening to a few pretty cool tracks lately. A lot of them are thanks to Launchpad Uplate on Nova here in Melbourne (I think this show is national too though. Something like 10-1130 Monday to Thursday nights). Others are thanks to HypeMachine. Gotta love it. Anyway, here’s my list.

  • Coin Laundry – Lisa Mitchell (This is fresh – downloaded this morning. I’m not sure about it yet. I like it, but I think it’s gonna have to get a few more listens till I make up my mind)
  • Your Call – Hermitude Feat. Urthboy and Alana Stone (I know I put this up last time, but it is still on high rotation. The beginning of the track is damn sweet and the little “I get confused making my mind up. Are you the fuse that could light me up” line in the middle is too darn catchy.)
  • The Lighthouse Song – Josh Pyke (Finally decided I needed this album and I’ll finish downloading it when I get home tonight. This track is pretty good too!!)
  • Pool Party 2009 – Shazam (New up and comer DJ/Remixer guy from Perth. Pretty disposable but still, is a sweet tune.)
  • You’ve Got A Lot Of Nerve – Red Riders (Heard this on Launchpad last night. Great track.)
  • I’m Not Alone – Calvin Harris (Sounds different to his other stuff which I like. Somebody said it had more of an underground/indie disco sound. I think parts of it do, but the rest is just his trademark commercial dance/trance kinda stuff._
  • Always Like This – Bombay Bicycle Club (Heard this on Hype Machine Radio this morning (you can check out Hype Machine Radio here – they do a weekly podcast and basically just put together the most popular tracks of the week.)
  • Shooting Stars – Bag Raiders (my mention of bag raiders in the Bonnie Prince post, was because it was about the only other thing I was listening to at the time. And, they haven’t left the iPod)
  • Lion (Bag Raiders Remix) – ZZZ (ZZZ did a remix of Bag Raiders’ track Fun Punch a while ago and made it into a crazy psychotic piano driven track. Listen to it. It will make you nuts! This track is really good though – Bag Raiders returning the favour.)

Short list this time around. Still, there is some good stuff there. Any suggestion about tracks I should check out? Post a comment and let me know!

K. That’ll do the ramble for now.
