MO MUSIC MO PROBLEMS.
2nd update this week, hope you're all caught up! Make sure you focus in on this all this weekend, time to step yr game up. Because there is a LOT MORE where this came from.
Remember: THERE IS ALWAYS MORE AMAZING MUSIC COMING OUT.
Also: If you're on my facebook group make sure your settings are such that you get email notifications when I post up new stuff!
Cecile - Green Light: Sometimes pop music gets it all just right.
Chiddy Bang - Ray Charles: Stupidly giddy happy music over here, and except for the silly jokes about blindness, a dope track.
Daughter - Medicine (Elliot Luke Remix): Some songs are just so beautiful you just imagine the perfect scene in your life's movie where they'd play over. What would you be doing? Why would it matter? And when the fuck did we suddenly learn to show restraint on the dubstep cliches and actually let the song take center stage? Kudos.
Emily Wells - Passenger (Kid Koala Remix): Awwwwwwwwww yeah we always need the gentle furry caress of the kid koala.
Filtertypen - After Laughter: CHOON. Classic samples, you've heard them all before, but never quite like this.
Finn Riggins - Benchwarmers: Pretty much any imagined video for this song has to occur in a high school gymanasium. My brain is incapable of going past that framework.
Francis - Creek Of Lonesome Town: Sometimes I wonder what would happen to Joanna Newsom if she grew up in small-town Ohio bar instead of being fed drugs by west-coast types. Apparently she couldn't fail.
Frankie Rose - Interstellar: With the likes of Class Actress, Young Galaxy, School of Seven Bells and Austra blowing up the female-led electro pop resurgence, I had high hopes for Interstellar, but it was mostly the title track that really grooved me enough.
Goldroom - Angeles (Follow Me reMix): The low-key production reminds me of that DFA-crew confidence where they know that sometimes the basic kick and snare are fine, and it's the groove that matters.
Hot Chip - Flutes: OMG NEW HOT CHIP!!!! I CAN'T WAIT FOR THE NEW ALBUM!
Joel P West - The Room Behind The Fireplace (excerpt): Sometimes we need to just sit down with some fabulous quartet music. Grab a scotch and an ottoman, crank up the hi-fi.
Lia Ices - Wish You Were Here (Pink Floyd cover): One of the many chill-inducing Floyd tracks gets covered in a way that somehow reduces the dramatic flair, but ups the atmosphere. Goodbye guitar solos, hello acapellas.
Madeon - Icarus (radio edit)
Madeon - Pop Culture (Mash Up): In this post-DaftJustice land, the big synth bass is king.
Näääk & Nimo - Backa Bak: No idea what the hell they are saying but oh I love a synth-led snap beat.
Nas - The Don: Hoooooooooooly shit this is a banger!
Ólafur Arnalds - Everything Must Change (Another Happy Day OST): Back to the quality quartet ish, a great piece from the Another Happy Day soundtrack.
Sarah McLachlan - The Rainbow Connection (Kermit The Frog cover): And let's just place this here and be out!
