Oriion – Live Another Lie

30 Jun

Very rapid reblog on this one now that there’s a video. It’s one of my favourite tunes from the past month. It’s a monster pop song. Hope it gets the attention it deserves.

The Mynabirds – Cocoon

30 Jun

Thrilled to learn that the new Mynabirds record ‘Be Here Now’ is landing in August. Here’s ‘Cocoon’ from it. It has that same dreamy feel I adored on the ‘Lovers Know’ album which was one of the best albums of the year in 2015.

Dusky Grey – Call Me Over

30 Jun

Strong endorsement from Mr Popjustice himself on this one. Nice to hear a decent male/female vocal – they sound remarkably like what Zara Larsson and Shawn Mendes would should they ever duet together.

 

Matthew Young – Collect

30 Jun

Sony Music New Zealand are on to winner with this release. Matthew has delivered a brilliant bit of wonky pop with ‘Collect’. Up there in quality with the best stuff from Andy Bull’s ‘Sea Of Approval’ record.

Stockholm Noir – Boy Like A Girl (featuring Ofelia)

30 Jun

Well this is rather special. These guys have been getting a lot of love on the blogs and deservedly so. ‘Boy Like A Girl’ is absolutely stunning. A perfect, pulsating Scandi synth gem with just a whiff of Moroder too (just a touch of the Donna Summer to this one).

Myzica – Higher Places

30 Jun

New tune and a shift in sound for Myzica. ‘Higher Places’ has a glitchy, sunny, indie glow. It’s good.

Blessed – My Yute

30 Jun

This one goes off! This track is my introduction to these South Londoners. Whilst it’s a very British sound it’s also got that US glam house feel a la Shamir or Hercules & Love Affair.

 

Pomona Dream – Tropicana

30 Jun

Between the artwork and the name of the label (Mango Disco) I was destined to love this…..and I do. Gorgeous summery, jazz flecked jam. I know zip about Pomona Dream but am sure to be investigating further.

Samantha Urbani – Go Deeper

30 Jun

About time! Great to have some new Samantha Urbani music at last. ‘Go Deeper’ fuses Ronika’s 80s electro sound with Nite Jewel’s super cool indie RnB vibe. Quite delightful.

Big Hair Girls – Future Is Female

30 Jun

Confused but in a good way after hearing this one. Shampoo meets Santigold and some Sofi Tukker too. It’s an undeniable bop and definitely a future girl power anthem!
