Pink Floyd have released the video for ‘Louder Than Words’ from their new LP, The Endless River. This closing track is the only one with a vocal and lyrics on the instrumental album and most likely it’s the last song the band ever recorded. The surreal video directed by Po Powell mixes the footage shot at the Aral Sea between Uzbekistan and Kazakhstan with black-and-white images of the band recording in the studio. Must hear, must watch, must remember!
South African rap-rave duo Die Antwoord have just shared a new video for ‘Ugly Boy’ from their latest album Donker Mag. Apart from Ninja and Yo-Landi-Vi$$er, the creepy video features an array of cameos including Marilyn Manson, Flea, Jack Black, Dita Von Teese, The ATL twins and Cara Delevingne. Too bad it’s already post Halloween!
Amason, quite mysterious outfit from Sweden, have premiered their new single ‘Duvan’ which is set to be out Oct 28. It’s a follow-up to released earlier this year ‘Ålen‘. Very promising, unique band, can’t wait to hear the next fruits of their collaboration! ❤
British soul singer Jessie Ware has just unveiled the video for her new single ‘Say You Love Me’ (out Sept 28). So simple and so sophisticated at the same time. Beautiful song, beautiful performance. Ok, love you Jessie, you got it.
English outfit alt-j have shared two videos for their new track ‘Every Other Freckle’ – the male and the female version. Not sure if the reason behind this has anything to do with gender equality, but the white cat definitely rocks. Watch both videos here.
What a heartwarming new video from Alex Metric for his latest single ‘Heart Weighs A Ton’! It shows how a 60-year-old man called Glenn Bruno managed to fullfill his dream of being a performer. Admirable. And don’t get fooled by the “heavy” title, the tune is actually very uplifting (Alex Metric, after all)!
Oh my, oh my!! Iamamiwhoami and her new tune ‘Tap Your Glass’ are both just all sorts of amazing! Beautiful, mystical dream pop at its finest. And obviously a lot of water in the video to make to “Joanna Style”. Can’t go wrong.
Watch this brilliant video just released by Pional for his ‘It’s All Over’ track. The animated drama was directed by Manson and is based on the Spanish youth culture in the early 90s. Great video and what a tune!!
Known as a “Sound Wizard”, the German producer Jens Buchert has shared a new piece of his mystical music. ‘Sundance Mix’ is a delicate ambient which takes you on a metaphysical journey. Gorgoeus, chilling tune.
The Icelandic indie-folk outfit Of Monsters And Men have revealed three new lyric videos for their songs ‘Dirty Paws’, ‘King and Lionheart’ and ‘Mountain Sound’. And there will be more – the band promised to share 12 lyric videos for each track from their debut, extremely popular album, My Head is an Animal. So far they are not disappointing – the artistic “live paintings” perfectly correspond with the tune and lyrics. Beautiful!!
Kasabian have shared the music video for ‘Bumblebeee’ from their new album 48:13 (out now). Furious dogs, flying drums and bleeding Sergio – that’s what you’ll see here. And you’ll hear a great song. Dope!!
Producer Aaron Jerome, better known as SBTRKT, paired up with Ezra Koenig (Vampire Weekend) to record this masterpiece. ‘New Dorp New York’ is the lead single from SBTRKT’s forthcoming album, Wonder Where We Land. Minimal, groovy, catchy, rebel, class!
It’s been a long time since the last Baxter Dury’s releases. But the English musician finally comes back with a new single, ‘Pleasure’, which will appear on his upcoming album, It’s a Pleasure. A very relevant title, that’s all I’m saying 🙂
Some new stuff from Jamie XX, the track written while he was on tour with The XX last year and apparently felt a bit homesick for London life. The new steel-drum-based track is a bit heavier than previously shared ‘Sleep Sound’ or ‘Girl‘, but it definitely spreads some addictive “London” vibe around.
After an incredible success of their debut album, The Awesome Wave, the English outfit Alt-J now return with a new LP, This Is All Yours (out Sept 22). Listen to the first single off it, ‘Hunger of the Pine’, which features a sample of Miley Cyrus singing ‘I’m a female rebel’ from her ‘4×4’ song. Classic smoky tune.
British pop soul singer Jessie Ware is making a really nice comeback by premiering her brand new, beautiful single ‘Tough Love’. It’s the first track that will appear on her second, yet untitled, album which is expected to be out later this year. And based on ‘Tough Love’ chances are it will repeat the success of her debut LP, Devotion, which included gems like Wildest Moments’, ‘Running’ and ‘If You’re Never Gonna Move’. Definitely something to be looking forward to. ❤
La Roux again proves that pop music doesn’t have to be bad. Just shared ‘Topical Chancer’ is the next single from her upcoming album, Trouble in Paradise (out July 7). Simple lyrics and melodic synths work together quite well taking you back to the 90s. Nice holiday vibe 🙂
Blood Orange, aka Dev Hynes, has just shared a video for the sweet ‘You’re Not Good Enough’ from his latest album, Cupid Deluxe (out now). It was directed by Gia Coppola and features Hynes dancing charismatically among some nice ladies (well, charismatic too) . Lovely, oldskool disco-soul-funk fusion!
Canadian musician Daniel Snaith, better known as Caribou, has just announced his new album, Our Love, which will be out on October 6th. Here is the first song from it, ‘Can’t Do Without You’. Subtle vocals go here perfectly with the melodic, bubbling synths. Lovely track which charmingly evolves along the way 🙂
Check out this new Soul Clap remix of the UK singer Sam Smith (known mostly for the single ‘Latch’ – fruitful collaboration with Disclosure). Glorious balearic vibe, impressive vocals and dancey rhytm. This remake is way beyond good! I’ll stay with you, yes! ❤
Ha! Bombay Bicycle Club’s single ‘Feel’ has just received a very decent remix from dance legends UNKLE. It’s only their second official remix in the last four years and it’s brilliant. Just one feeling, just one feeling: top tune!
English singer Anna Calvi and David Byrne (Talking Heads) teamed up to record a cover of ‘Strange Weather’, originally by Keren Ann. The song will be released on 14th July as a part of the 5 track covers EP, produced by Thomas Bartlett, who previously collaborated with bands such as The National i Antony and the Johnsons. Haunting cover and you will definitely hear strong Anna Calvi’s influence here.
A few days after sharing ‘Let Me Down Gently’, the English synthpop singer La Roux released another single from her forthcoming LP, Trouble in Paradise (out July 7). Nicely uplifting funky vibe, will make your feet jiggle 🙂
Major Lazer and Sean Paul released a video for ‘Come on to Me’. Japanese-themed clip features women dancing in colorful geisha outfits and men playing taiko drums. Impressive choreography and massive drum power!
Watch this new stunning video for ‘Coeur De La Nuit’ by two Berlin-based DJs, Ferdinand Dreyssig and Marvin Hey. The track is a remix of ‘Vois sur ton Chemin’ from the classic french movie ‘Les choristes’. Beautiful choir plus melodic house beat plus artistic video, just a perfect combination! It will get stuck in your head, guaranteed 🙂 ❤ ❤ ❤
British duo The 2 Bears have released a video for their new single ‘Angel (Touch Me)’, to be found on their forthcoming album The Night. The song itself with its very light, delicate beat could appear a bit boring, but the video is worth watching 🙂
