Alela Diane – About Farewell

You couldn’t get further removed from my last post (Annie) than the prairie folk of Alela Diane. I have been lucky enough to see this lady live and she’s totally mesmerising. Here’s the title track from her new album which is out this week.

Avan Lava – Tear It Down

Prince’s Controversy/Dirty Mind era is the inspiration for Avan Lava’s track which now has this amazing video going for it. For fans of the last Private album or indeed Dragonette.

Lissie – Further Away (Romance Police)

Lissie – Further Away (Romance Police)

The first track from Lissie’s upcoming album is even more indebted to Fleetwood Mac than her previous stuff – but it works just the same. This soars and rolls like classic 70s California soft rock. Perfect for driving down those LA freeways. Or indeed the A14!

Dark Dark Dark – How It Went Down

Another of my Latitude discoveries. Loving this live version of what was the highlight of their set last weekend.

Lana Del Rey – Summertime Sadness

Lana Del Rey – Summertime Sadness

Also belatedly creeping up the charts is Queen Lana’s ode to the sun. The renewed interest in the track is due to a dance remix but the original still does it for me.

Le Youth – Cool

This has been one of my jams for some months now but out of nowhere it’s suddenly creeping up the iTunes chart. His mixtapes are pretty legendary too.

Matt Cardle and Melanie C – Loving You

Matt Cardle and Melanie C – Loving You

If I haven’t lost you already…….yes this is quite a good song! I’m getting a Fleetwood Mac vibe from this and their voices blend very nicely together. I don’t remember Mel C looking this hot as a Spice Girl. Must have been the shellsuits.

Annie – Back Together

Norway’s finest Annie could never be accused of over saturating the market with her product. Release dates have come and gone over the past few years but recent months have given renewed hope with at least a trickle of activity. Earlier this week Annie fans had to pinch themselves when they were told that her new EP is being BROUGHT FORWARD!!!! This Little Boots and Richard X collab is one of the best pop tunes of the year and is available from Monday.
