Lucy Mason – Going Home Broke

31 Jan

Almost a year after I discovered this gorgeous song a video has emerged. Hoping it gives the song new life – it’s too good to look past.

Keeks – Leave It At That

31 Jan

Yet another super promising Aussie. A great find via Project U/Triple J Unearthed. I’m hearing, wait for it…..a bit of Abba on this one.

Middle Kids – Mistake

31 Jan

These Aussie kids are going to be huge in 2018. Their smattering of tunes last year suggested great things and their first tune of the new year is absolutely monster sized.

Deidre & The Dark – Come On

31 Jan

I’ll whisper it…but….’Come On’ is the best track NOT on Saint Etienne’s 2017 album. Deidre and co throw in a bit of solo spice a la Emma Bunton in ‘Free Me’ mode and a smidge of Vanessa Paradis too (but those opening lines are totally Sarah Cracknell). Bliss.

Freya Ridings – Lost Without You

31 Jan

Well this is just lovely. London Grammar comparisons are kinda inevitable due to Freya’s voice. ‘Lost Without You’ is pretty devastating and beautifully simple. Executed to perfection.

Annalia – Wavelength

31 Jan

Some nice Fleetwood Mac-isms about this one but with some modern production touches too.

Hana Vu – Crying On The Subway

31 Jan

New name on me but Hana Vu’s ‘Crying On The Subway’ manages to make wonky chill wave sound souful. Gonna put this out there…….Adele meets Toro Y Moi via the Cocteau Twins. In a good way, ok?
