If you're looking for a jam to get you in the mood for some weekend dancing, we got you covered! Check out this excellent sun drenched debut single "Found Your Love" by Oliver Nelson, featuring vocals by Heir. If this doesn't get you off your butt and dancing, we don't know what will. Great dance groove! Can't wait to incorporate it into my sets.
Enjoy, and have a great weekend!!
Got sent this great new dance jam by NYC producer Dart Party, for his latest single "Are You In". For this one he collaborates with fellow New Yorker Govales, and puts together a soulful dance floor winner! I can see many DJ's out there incorporating this into their sets. Have at it!
Loving the new album from Moscow band Pompeya 'Real' that was released last week. It's one of my favorite new albums. First heard "Tell Me, Tell Me" the other day on the radio, and I was instantly hooked. I love the lead singer's voice, their lovely melodies and their 80's inspired sound. They freely admit their love and inspiration from 70's, 80's new wave and pop music, which only makes me love them more.
Check out the excellent "Pasadena" which they have up on their soundcloud, plus some cool remixes I spotted on there, including an amazing remix by The Twelves who we hadn't posted about in forever. Forgot how much I missed them.
You can preview/buy 'Real' on iTunes. Highly Recommended!
Couldn't resist not posting "Tell Me, Tell Me". Listen at your peril though, as you may become addicted (like I did), and have to press play a bunch of times a day.
Another great submission we received today is from LA indie pop trio The Rebel Light and their fresh track "Strangers". Really digging it's indie pop charm. It has a great breezy retro feel to it, complete with horns, catchy choruses, and lovely vocals. Best part is they are giving away the track as a free download in full wave length quality! We'll take it!
Loving this track "Actors" sent our way by Toronto, Canada trio Bravestation. Great dream-pop jem from their forthcoming Summer EP. Got us excited to hear more, see if it does the same for you.
Our friends over at King's Head Records sent over the debut album 'Lies & Deceit' released today by their newest signing, one man band Culture Prophet (who hails from South Carolina, but now resides in Miami). All we can say is wow! An uncompromising assault on the senses. From dark experimental tracks, to indie/punk anthems, and hard hitting industrial sounds, this album has a little of it all. You can tell he's been around the block a few times, and fine tuned his chops before he got to where he is now.
We are particularly digging the industrial sounding "Eating Concrete" and "Giallo" (which sound like they came straight from a classic 80's Front 242 record), the in-your-face indie/punk brashness of "Sleeping Lord", and our favorite, the dark middle eastern tinged "Assassins", which they have been kind enough to make as a free download for our readers! How amazing is that?!
Check out those tunes below, but really the whole album is excellent and deserves further delving. You can listen to 'Lies & Deceit' on their soundcloud, and purchase it on iTunes.
Got sent another amazing remix by JackLNDN for Montgomery's "Not Around" that reminds us summer is just around the corner. This remix will be perfect as your hanging around the pool/beach and the sun is shining. Guaranteed to brighten your mood. Check it out below and if you dig it, he's giving it away as a free download in exchange for a soundcloud follow.
As a bonus here is the video for the original version of "Not Around", which is an amazing indie pop gem as well. Enjoy!
