Tula – River

28 Feb

From the little info I have gathered this morning Tula appears Swedish but based in Berlin which is one super hot combo. ‘River’ fluctuates between minimal electrofolk to something more bombastic and epic as each chorus swoops in. There’s a drama here akin to countrywoman Lykke Li but also a Lorde-like teenage innocence.

Priest – The Game

28 Feb

The artists formerly known as X Priest X are back minus the Xs. Their sound hasn’t changed too much from their mega promising EP from last year – fizzing bits of Annie-pop with a nod to Dubstar and Beach House.

Julian Moon – Good Girl

28 Feb

Blogging on the run this morning. However had to share this little gem (thanks to KickKickSnare for this one). She doesn’t look like your average Julian! But she sounds like one of my favourite artists, Ms Holly Palmer. This track has a real classic vibe to it and the vocal is supercute. An album follows end of March apparently but nothing available to purchase in the UK as of this morning. Hope that can be remedied!

Elin Bell – All The Love

27 Feb

Well this is just lovely. Another bit of slightly melancholic aching electro pop with edge coming out of Sweden. Damn you goodmoose music having all this on your doorstep!

Scavenger Hunt – Lost (Lenno Remix)

27 Feb

Not a big blogger of remixes but had to mention this one as it’s so huge! When the beat drops at about 60 seconds in the song really explodes. I find myself constantly singing the “let’s get lost” line as the melody pops into my head. This wouldn’t be out of place on Betty Who’s dreamy 80s influenced debut album.

Katelyn Tarver – Weekend Millionaires

27 Feb

So this young lady has been a bit of teen TV star in the States apparently. Musically she has gone for the Aaliyah influenced sound we have heard on LIZ’s releases on Mad Decent. Loving the layered vocal effects on the chorus on this tune. Hope we can buy it in the UK some time soon.

Ida LaFontaine – Anthem

24 Feb

Thanks to Chris Lilley and the Goodmoose blog for this one. What an absolutely huge pop song.

Monogem – The Glow

24 Feb

This is one of those tracks I bought on a whim after reading a, ahem, glowing review (sorry). Then I stuck it on a playlist and kinda forgot about it. However every time it comes on my ipod I have to flip the cover to see who it is because it’s so good! I should have paid it more attention at the time.

Thief – Crazy

24 Feb

Another of my favourite Aussies. Thief’s ‘Closer’ EP and breakout track ‘You Look So Good To Me’ have been played to death by me and I’m thrilled he’s back with another synthtastic track in the shape of ‘Crazy’ which ensures the quality control remains set to high. Album please Mister Thief!

Argonaut & Wasp – Pistol Pump Funk

23 Feb

These boys just released their new EP and here’s the video for ‘Pistol Pump Funk’ which is not exactly new but as it appears on the EP I thought I’d give it an airing. A&W manage to funk and disco it up without straying into the slightly cheesy Chromeo territory. There’s some variety on the EP too – ‘Stranger Lover’ takes down the BPM for example.
