Yuksek & JD Samson – Don’t Even Try

31 May

The You Too Can Woo label delivers again with this mega fun space house banger from Yuksek and JD. It’s lasers a-go-go for this Hercules & Love Affairs meets CSS with a nod to S-Express bugged out jam.

Luluc – Heist

31 May

‘Sculptor’ is the new Luluc album and it arrives in July.  From it, here’s the subtle and enchanting sounds of ‘Heist’. A beautiful late evening piece of music.

Paupière – Rex

31 May

Bubbly bit of French Canadian synthpop from this lot. It’s been out a while but the album appears to be getting a bigger international release and here’s the video for ‘Rex’ to celebrate that.

Deqn Sue – Starter Adult

31 May

Another funked up gem from Deqn Sue’s ‘Juggernaut’ album. Here’s the video for ‘Starter Adult’ which just dropped. You can’t beat some space age aerobics.

 

Topia – Bonds

30 May

Proper pop from this Swedish duo who have a monster sized tune in the shape of ‘Bonds’. I’m hearing defunct girl bands like Thunderbugs and Hepburn if they were going for Eurovision glory. It’s that much fun.

 

Maggie Rogers – fallingwater

30 May

She’s something special. Surely destined to be the superstar of her generation in terms of pure artistry. This is simply huge.

Cellars – All The Time

30 May

Cellars’ ‘Phases’ was 80s tinged indie synth pop of the highest order. At T&D we had overlooked her return but we’re diving headfirst back in with the marvellous ‘All The Time’. Even more pure pop than anything from ‘Phases’ there’s a bit of Five Star on the vocal and some Tiffany/Debbie Gibson teen pop power happening too. Couldn’t love this one more.

La Moreno – Cheetos and Champagne

26 May

So I’m think Grace Jones might be a musical hero for La Moreno? That was my first thought when listening to ‘Cheetos & Champagne’. One of those songs and videos you can’t quite get your heard around on first listen/watch but which demands more attention and slowly seeps into your brain.

Satin Jackets featuring Emma Brammer – Take It From Me

26 May

Smooth and funky disco tuneage is what we expect from Satin Jackets and he’s delivered on this sublime new track with Emma Brammer – the two combining to create a sound akin to Moloko at their sunniest.

Linney & Kinetic Assembly – My Kinda Lover

26 May

Always pleased to hear new Linney music and she makes it easy for us when the bops keep coming like they do with ‘My Kinda Lover’. Gotta admit I’m not familiar with the original of this but loving what Linney and Kinetic Assembly have given us with this fizzing electronic vibe.
