Lulu James – Closer

Lulu James – Closer

Loving the mix of synths and soul on this. The Brolin remix of this track is somehow even better than the single version contained in this video. Both are available on 8 April.

Love M83. Love Susanne. Don’t love Tom Cruise movies. 2/3 ain’t bad.

Tracky Dax – DJ

Tracky Dax – DJ

With my Australia trip just days away I was thinking about one of my previous trips, more than 10 years ago. One of my clearest memories is driving from the Gold Coast to Byron Bay and hearing this awesome tune on the radio and having to know what it was so I could find it and buy it. It was this funky little song and I have the CD playing as I type. Ah memories. here’s to making some more next week.

Rhye – Open

Rhye – Open

The Rhye album is every bit as gorgeous as I expected. Minimal r’n’b and electro grooves – like James Blake and Jessie Ware chilling out at home with candles and a nice bottle of merlot on the go. This album makes you feel positively warm, which with the weather in the UK as absurdly cold as it is, is a bonus!

Rilo Kiley – Let Me Back In

Rilo Kiley – Let Me Back In

The much delayed Rilo Kiley b-sides/unreleased tracks album is almost upon us at last. Glad to see the band have released a new video, albeit with some vintage footage, to promote the album. Let Me Back In is classic RK with Jenny’s forlorn country-tinged voice and eloquent lyrics. Judging from the online reaction, the video is having quite an emotional impact on the fans still living in hope of a reunion proper.

Bye Bye Girls Aloud

Bye Bye Girls Aloud

Not exactly a surprise but the girls have said farewell as their Ten tour drew to a close. This remains one of the most genius pop singles of the last 20 years.
