LÉON – Falling

18 Aug

We’ve been banging on about this wonderful woman for yonks and have been supporting her music since the very beginning. Her song ‘Falling’ is getting a lot of support from BBC Radio 2 in the UK and we may yet see her debut album get the attention it deserves. Here’s the new video for ‘Falling’.

L’Avenue – Lipstick & Sushi

18 Aug

This was top of my poolside lounge playlist on hols and will now always remind me of the wonderful trip I just took. The EP ‘Cherry Crush’ is utterly sublime and this track tells you all you need to know about what to expect from it.

Ralph – No Muss No Fuss

18 Aug

A new Ralph EP is on the way which is very welcome news. Following up the large banger that is ‘Gravity’ with another bop albeit a more chilled one – say hello to ‘No Muss No Fuss’. For those of you across the pond the other news is that Ralph is opening for Carly Rae Jepsen on tour and that is some incredibly poptastic double header.

 

Funk LeBlanc – Real Love featuring Holland Greco (Fred Falke Remix)

16 Aug

It might be New Music Friday but it’s also Nu Disco Friday – well to be fair every day of the week needs a bit of nu disco here at T&D towers. Today the dose comes courtesy of Funk LeBlanc with Holland Greco and a fizzing remix courtesy of Fred Falke. Classy all the way is this one.

Bec Sandridge – Stranger

16 Aug

‘Try + Save Me’ will be the eagerly anticipated debut album by Bec Sandridge. We’ve loved her singles from the past couple of years and new track ‘Stranger’ is a sonic blast – the epitome of power pop. There’s some Toyah, Sleigh Bells, Transvision Vamp and Metric all in the mix.

Kim Wilde – Bladerunner (from Aliens Live)

16 Aug

Beautiful memories are flooding back from the incredible Here Come The Aliens tour last year which saw Kim Wilde and band tear across the UK and Europe with their rocking live show. Today Kim releases ‘Aliens Live’ which is a cleverly sequenced live album with tracks taken from many of those concert dates but put together seamlessly like one live show. I was there at the very first night of the UK tour in Ipswich and it was ‘Bladerunner’ which stopped me in my tracks (recorded in Hamburg for the live album). It was a flawless live vocal from Kim packed full of emotion and feeling and one which I will confess prompted a tear or two. Looking forward enormously to seeing what Ms Wilde has in store for us over the course of the next year.
