YYZ – Lost In The Mix

 I loved this track when I first discovered it earlier this year. Very belatedly a video has appeared and has reignited my love of the tune.

Tina Arena – Only Lonely

 A stunning version of one of the standout tracks from Tina’s new album Reset. This really is so beautiful.

Kim Wilde – Hope

 This Kim Wilde one-new-video-a-day thingy is spoiling us rotten and something I could very easily become accustomed to. A pop video early advent calendar – how lovely! Hope is one of the quite stunning new tracks on the Wilde Winter Songbook I shall continue to champion.

Francis and the Lights – Like A Dream

Francis and the Lights – Like A Dream

 Another EP well worth the couple of quid to purchase it this week is the new one from Francis and the Lights. I heard the track Etc earlier this year and it had that same smooth, soulful vibe than Rhye/Quadron/Miguel have been so working so well lately. There’s a Prince/Scritti Politti vibe happening for me too across the EP.

Say Lou Lou – Better In The Dark

Say Lou Lou – Better In The Dark

 The new EP from the girls was released this week. The lead track is Better In The Dark but track 2 on the EP, Beloved, could well become one of my favourite songs of the year. Surely one of the most anticipated albums of 2014, although I said the same about Say Lou Lou at the end of 2012 so who knows!

Sophie Ellis-Bextor – Young Blood

 A complete change of direction for Sophie with this first track from her new album due in January. This is quite lovely and I was not expecting to be quite so taken with this. Pretty video too.
