Elizabeth and the Catapult – Ambrosia

22 Oct

Haven’t checked in with Elizabeth in a while but I do still love her ‘Taller Children’ era. Anyways ‘Ambrosia’ is pretty special and quite tragic and uplifting at once on first listen. Hearing a touch of Regina Spektor in there on this one.

Handsome (featuring Joyride) – Late Night Ball Game

22 Oct

Yet another emerging Australian artist to get excited about. Handsome’s ‘Late Night Ball Game’ is all kinds of epic and I’m looking forward to hearing more from her before too long. It goes from rather minimal to totally bombastic stadium sized in sound as the song ebbs and flows.

Holiday Sidewinder – Casino

22 Oct

A very welcome back to T&D to Holiday Sidewinder. Totally adored her whimsical dreampop cult classic ‘Carousel’ and was thrilled to see (thanks to Wonky Sensitive) that she’s back and with a Annie-meets-Robyn synthpop diamond in the shape of ‘Casino’. Trust me there’s no gamble on this one – it’s poptastic.

Secret Weapons – Konichiwild

22 Oct

Secret Weapons’ ‘As The Setting Sun Comes Crashing Down On Me’ is the album that keeps on giving. It’s bops and bangers o’clock everywhere you look with this record and it’s criminal that it’s flown so under the radar. This track is my favourite at the moment.

Choir Boy – Sunday Light

21 Oct

Adam Klopp is Choir Boy. On ‘Sunday Light’ he blends DINNER’s unique vocal (OK not THAT deep but different) with some Bright Light Bright Light synthpop. Good tune.

 

Oriion – Fast Lane Hearts

21 Oct

Less 80s and more neon glitchpop from this new track from Oriion. We adore ‘Live Another Lie’ and expect this new one to be a grower.

Fever High (featuring Jeff Goldblum) – Good Advice

21 Oct

Just as Bananarama head out on their huge UK tour seems a good time for Fever High to release their new album (it’s coming in November). There’s some serious ‘Deep Sea Skiving’ era feels to Fever High which is just fine with us. New tune incredibly features some words of wisdom from Jeff Goldblum.
