Care for some new Dragonette? Yeah I figured you probably wouldn't mind. Here's her new single "Rocket Ship" from her upcoming album 'Bodyparts' which will be released September 25th. It's just as catchy as anything I've heard from her and you can bet there will be tons of amazing remixes coming out for this and all her singles. Her voice just lends itself to those. Anyways if you like the track she's giving it away as a free download. Thank you Dragonette!

4 years is a long time to go without new music by Australian duo The Presets, but that's exactly how long it's been. Well the wait is over as yesterday they released their new video for first single "Youth in Trouble" from their upcoming album 'Pacifica' being released September 14th. This new track seems a bit more subdued, with less vocals and ravier than their previous releases. We shall see if this is the general direction they are going in or if it's just this track. For now, enjoy the goods!
Diamond Rings has come a long way since we first posted about him back in 2010 here. Pitchfork was tweeting about him the other day and even saw an advertisement on the side bar of Facebook. Check out his new single/video for "I'm Just Me" from his upcoming album below. It's a flashy laser light show extravaganza.

LA duo Poolside that gave us the amazing track "Do You Believe" are getting ready to release their debut album 'Pacific Standard Time' July 9th. The first taste of their new record is first single "Slow Down" which as the name implies sees them slowing down the tempo and imploring us to take it easy. Another great chill track from this duo that I caught opening for The Rapture on their last tour. Their new album has got some early love by the likes of James Murphy, Aeroplane and The Magician who called it "one of the best of 2012". The Magician knows his stuff, so it must be good! Can't wait to check out the rest of the album. For now check out "Slow Down" which they are offering as a free download and the video for the track which sees the duo taking it easy by a pool. As all of us should be doing around this time of the year.

I love me some Swedish electro-pop, especially when it's two lovely ladies behind the mics. Check out Rebecca & Fiona's latest video for their new single "Bullets". Jumping around in a bathtub/hotel room in their underwear. You know, normal everyday type of stuff haha, but seriously it's a great tune! It's from their upcoming US debut album 'I Love You, Man' scheduled for release July 10th on Ultra Records.

You know sometimes it can be hard to describe a band/artists genre's. A good example would be Paris duo Yeti Lane. They have a new single/video for their track "Warning Sensations" from their new album 'The Echo Show'. Not sure exactly what genre it would be (electronic? experimental?), one thing's for sure, it is good stuff! Loving this track! It kind of reminds me of Grandaddy. Wondering what the rest of that record sounds like. Might have to investigate further. For now check out their latest single/video and maybe it will spark your curiosity as well.

The Mystic Underground are a Brooklyn, NYC electronic duo. Recently they sent us their latest single "Remember Me" from their upcoming EP Dreamers and Lovers coming out in August. Digging the track! Their sound reminds me of a cross between TV on the Radio and Twin Shadow and should appeal to fans of both those bands. Check out the track/video below and if you like what you hear you can download the track for free simply by liking their Facebook page here. Sounds like a deal to me.

Erika Spring singer/keyboardist from Au Revoir Simone has a new solo side project. Her self titled debut EP is set for release July 10th on Cascine. The first taste from the EP is first single "Hidden" and it is a pretty little indie pop number. I have no doubt the rest of the EP will be just as special. Definitely something to hold us off until their return and who knows, she could take off even further than they did. Crazier things have been known to happen. Check out the track below which she is offering as a free download.
RAC & Penguin Prison working together??? Hell yes! The RAC video for their latest track "Hollywood" featuring one of our faves Penguin Prison caught my attention when I saw them post it on their Facebook over the weekend. I had a hangover, but this video/track made me forget all about it. Such a feel good summer jam. When the vocals kick in around the .48 second mark I was transported to a tropical beach with a cold drink in my hand. Maybe it'll do the same for you. If the video's not good enough how about getting the track for free, plus a remix by The Magician? Yep, today just got a whole lot better.
This is what I'm talking about! NYC electro/dance duo The Knocks have put out some fabulous works before, but I think they've outdone themselves with this brand new take on Santigold's latest single "The Keepers". An absolutely brilliant remix harkening back to those glory days of smokey club back rooms at 3am when the DJ throws on an electro banger that kicks that Miller High Life fueled party energy into top gear! Ah, wait, we're still in those glory days! So pick the track up below (free download!) as it's an essential for that Party-All-Night playlist.
Got sent this great new indie rock track "Want You To Know" by Bradford, UK band White Light Parade. Not too many great indie rock bands or tracks being put out these days with the proliferation of electronic music, but this one is pretty sweet. The track is scheduled for release July 2nd. Check out the video for the track below, plus an excellent remix of the track by Is Tropical that they are offering as a free download! Thank you very much. Enjoy!

Check it out below and if you like what you hear it's available for purchase on iTunes. New singles/remixes in the works.

Any Morrissey fan should be familiar with the name Boz Boorer. One of Morrissey's main song writing partners for the last couple decades who along with Alain Whyte are responsible for most of the classic Morrissey tracks we all know and love. For me particularly the albums 'Your Arsenal' and 'Vauxhall & I' which are two of my fave Morrissey solo records in which he was a big part of. Fast forward to 2012 and Boz has a new solo single "Slippery Forces" which in addition to writing the track also handles vocal duties and lo and behold it's pretty good stuff, but I am biased as to me he is a living legend just like the Moz man himself. His upcoming album 'Some of the Parts' is scheduled for release later in the year.
Check out the video for "Slippery Forces" which has him playing multiple roles, plus a remix by Konsorten TM. If you like what you hear you can check out/buy the release with additional remixes on iTunes here.

Looking for a good indie pop jam to wrap your head around? Then check out this great little indie jam sent our way "On The Outside" by California duo Sacred Caves.

One thing's for sure, things are looking promising. Check out the track below and if you like what you hear they are offering the track as a free download! Best grab that bad boy.

At last a new original by the Belgian producer Compuphonic! This new track called Sunset featuring Marques Toliver will certainty guide us straight out on the boat and to the beach for the rest of the summer especially with a remix like the one DJ T. did for this summer gem. I'm also adding another track by Compuphonic that I've been following for a few months now called My House My School, out on beatport here. AND including his Goyte "Somebody I Used To Know" remix, of which he was one of the first in the world to add his touch to.

How this Australian 3-piece slipped my radar for the last couple of years I won't ever know (sidenote: they were in my iTunes already). Not wanting to contemplate it much, just going to let the flood gates to their dirty dreamy electro/rock open. Art vs. Science is LIVE at Bardot (Miami) tonight, and there couldn't be a more intimately intense place to catch their live show. After seeing them at Bonnaroo this past weekend I can surely say this band has taken "having great energy" to new levels. Even though listening to their tracks on whatever outstanding equipment you may use still gives you a charge, you won't grasp full appreciation for these guys until you see them live in their silver metallic moon suits. This afternoon we'll be giving away 2 tickets to Art vs. Science's show tonight on OTR's facebook, otherwise you can get your tickets here if you're in Miami tonight.

In keeping with the soulful theme of Soulsavers I wanted to post about another great album that came out recently Spiritualized latest 'Sweet Heart Sweet Light'. The amazing Jason Pierce has another winner on his hand. First single "Hey Jane" is pretty upbeat and dancey, prob the happiest I've heard him in a long time. For me Spiritualized is an acquired taste, I kinda have to be in the right mood to enjoy him and it seems like this one came out at the right time as I'm really digging it.
Check out a couple tracks from the record first single "Hey Jane" and "Little Girl" below, but it was hard to choose cause there's a bunch of great ones. "Too Late", "I Am What I Am" and "Mary" are also top notch. An album best heard in it's entirety really. If you like what you hear you can buy the whole thing on Amazon for $5. A bargain I say.

The new Soulsavers album 'The Light The Dead See' was recently released and it features one of my all time favorites Dave Gahan from Depeche Mode handling vocal duties. I got the record and am mightilly impressed. Real soulful record. It's nice to hear Dave singing in a bit of a different style than the usual DM style. Check out "Longest Day" and "Presence of God" below. You can sample/buy the album on Amazon or iTunes.

London trio Get People that we've written about a few times before, most recently here, have released a new track called "Something Better".

Swedish duo Lissi Dancefloor Disaster that we've written about a bunch of times have a great new video for their latest track "Singing My Heart Out".

Check that out below as well as a couple sweet remixes by Le Prix & Den Svenska Bjornstammen.

I've been following Fear of Theydon, an East London producer since I first heard his remix to Grand National's 'Rub Your Potion' and have been hooked ever since. Julian Peck (Fear of Theydon) got his start at UK indie record lable Sunday Best, and since then has received copious amounts of critical acclaim, especially for his 2007 debut release, 'This is Fear of Theydon EP'. Out today is his new remix of Treefella by Myheadisaballoon (free download below), which has been on repeat for most of my Saturday. In regards to Fear of Theydon's sound, I don't think it could be better described then as is stated in Julian's about section on his web page, "As ‘Fear of Theydon’, he produces and disc-jockeys esoteric Yoga music to placate troubled children." Check out his Soundcloud for more FREE goodies. Hope everyone has a great rest of the weekend. ENJOY!
One of my favourite bands of 2010, psychedelic rockers Yeasayer, are back and as awesome as ever with this amazing new first single from their forthcoming third LP Fragrant World due out August 20! The new single "Henrietta" is just as much of a psychedelic trip as any of their previous works and is catchy as hell. Been stuck on repeat in my iTunes since picking it up a few days ago! It always makes me nervous when these bands take semi-long sabbaticals from the limelight because their new stuff has to be really amazing to maintain that momentum, and I can honestly say these guys haven't missed a beat! Really looking forward to this new LP in which band member Anand Wilder has coined it's sound as "Sci-Fi soul music". Of course, a new album means new tour dates and, believe me, these guys are fantastic live! Check out/pick up tickets for all upcoming shows here.
