Mood Talk – Intimacy

23 Oct

Handsome Dad Records released one of our most adored albums of the year with Grace Lightman’s ‘Silver Eater’. They show further exquisite taste by dropping the new tune by Mood Talk. ‘Intimacy’ is a bubbly disco house banger (check out the full length as well as this edit) which will have you shoulder shuffling at your work station in seconds.

San Cisco – Skin

23 Oct

Yet more Aussie goodness for you on the swoonsome new tune from San Cisco. ‘Skin’ is a laid back dreamy bit of indie with an intro which recalls INXS’ classic ‘Never Tear Us Apart’. New album on the way.


Banoffee – Tennis Fan featuring Empress Of

23 Oct

Aussie pop on the Cascine label – sounds like a match made in heaven. Been a fan of Banoffee for a while and Cascine announced that her album ‘Look At Us Now Dad’ will arrive early next year. New track ‘Tennis Fan’ (with Empress Of) is such a fun wonky bop and as tennis fanatics we love the little tennis samples.

Laumė – Spells (Oedipusi)

20 Oct

The artist formerly known as Madeira is back with a taster from her forthcoming album ‘Waterbirth’ which will arrive on Carpark Records in January. ‘Spells’ has some synth sounds which threaten to burst into Madonna’s ‘Like A Virgin’ and combined with her groovy indie dance vibe this is pretty much perfect.

Otha – Tired And Sick

20 Oct

Here’s a Dark Scandibop for you – this one will appeal to fans of Marie Davidson’s dirty and delicious electro. We’re kinda hoping Bergen’s finest, Annie,  pops back out of semi retirement because her bubblegum pop powers mixed with her fellow Norwegian Otha’s spiky indie dance could be a perfect storm.

Qwestlife featuring Sugarhill Gang, Siedah Garrett, Grandmaster Melle Mel & Scorpio – Fever

20 Oct

Legends everywhere you turn on this Glitterbox release which popped up on a new New Music Friday lists the day before yesterday as well as in a Tweet from Yam Who. The 3 track release is pure disco funk gold and I have picked out the revved up Laroye’s Powerfunk Mix for you. Keeping those disco feels pumping this weekend.

LEFTI – 4am Taxi, Miami

20 Oct

Loving this trend for recording interactions with everyday folks on phones and them making their way onto record (see also Shura’s amazing ‘Tommy’). LEFTI’s chat with a Miami taxi driver is the basis for this gem of a disco house track and indeed it is about dancing as the man behind the wheels confirms.


Raquel Rodriguez – Night’s Over (Midnight Riot Remixes by Yam Who and Redux Inc)

20 Oct

How about some luxurious decadent boogietastic disco for your Sunday listening pleasure? Raquel Rodriguez’s ‘Night’s Over’ is a year or so old (and pretty wonderful in original format) but has been given even more shine and polish thanks to this pair of Midnight Riot remixes offered up by Yamo Who and Redux Inc.

Noah – Intro

20 Oct

Noah’s album ‘Thirty’ was just released by those lovely people at Flau Records. It’s an electronic record all about Tokyo, a place very high on the T&D to do list (not least due to our obsession with Lost in Translation). The album lives up to the hype of the two singles and indeed the aptly named ‘Intro’ is a perfect way to get your feel for what Noah has to offer. Her Bandcamp says of ‘Thirty’ and specifically ‘Intro’;

Tokyo is big. Tokyo is messy. Tokyo is futuristic. Tokyo is everything all at once. It’s this image of Japan’s capital that Noah draws inspiration from for her latest album, Thirty.

From the sweeping, mystical feel of the intro – like a portal into the world of the city

Also mentioned are analogue electro-disco and decadent vaporwave – are you intrigued yet? ‘Thirty’ is our essential release of the week and we can confirm it’s perfect for late night headphone sessions.

Vast Hill – We Used To Have Fun

19 Oct

‘More Than You Imagined’ is the dreamy pastel popping debut album from Vast Hill. You know as soon as you see the album cover you’re in for a treat. Light and wispy boy/girl vocals over soft retro synths make this an absolute delight from start to finish.
