Faith No More – Sunny Side Up (Official Video)

Yet again Faith No More are proving that ageing is for losers. The video for “Sunny Side Up”, the 3rd single off their new album , Sol Invictus, is just a great combination of creativity, sarcasm and fun. Our metal guys get “older” and perform in a “boring” retirement home… See how it goes!

Kamp! – No need to be kind

So, Kamp! is back and it seems to be a strong comeback. The Polish electronic trio has just shared the first single off their new LP, but you can already feel the smooth, melodic synthpop vibe, which has become some sort of their trademark by now.  The guys are also going on tour, and unofficially yet, but apparently will be back in Dublin in December. Hoorrraaay! No need to be kind, but that’s actually very kind!

1 RDJ – First

 

Just came across this and it instantly made my Friday. Sound debut from 1 RDJ. Catchy beat, fantastic progressive chords and expressive piano transitions all together will send shivers up your spine. I can smell a disco hit coming our way. The track will officially be out on August 3rd.

Blood Orange – Do You See My Skin Through The Flames?

 

New song from Blood Orange is a masterpiece of its kind. The atmospheric ambient filled with smoky sax, jazzy piano and dreamy synth makes a perfect background for an important message. In the lyrics, Dev Hynes talks about racism. violence and the Charleston massacre. 11 minutes of a very personal, touching and beautiful track. Worth listening.

Róisín Murphy – Evil Eyes

Irish electropop artist Róisín Murphy just served us a new, self-directed video for “Evil Eyes”, off her recent album, Hairless Toys. It’s a fascinating and unpredictable clip, in which she acts as a hysterical woman. So full of personality. What a legend that woman is!

Cyril Hahn – Last ft. Joel Ford

Long time no hear from Cyril Hahn, but here he is! The freshly released song was created together with a producer Joel Ford. It’s a first single from Hahn’s new EP, and accordingly it’s called “Last”. Have a listen!

TAME IMPALA – Eventually

How nice of Tame Impala to share with us yet another track  before the full release of their third album, Currents! “Eventually” just confirms that there’s something big to wait for! Beautiful, psychedelic ballad which takes you to the mysterious, surreal and happy world of 70s. Majestic masterpiece!

 

Carly Rae Jepsen – All That (Audio)

 

Carly Rae Jepsen just debuted a new song and it’s a huuuuge milestone in her career (remember ‘Call Me Maybe”?! – yes, it’s the very same singer). The new ballad ‘All That’ is all about 80s – dreamy, emotional synthpop, very much Prince-alike. This is a shocking progress in Jepsen’s music production, let’s hope she keeps it up! ❤

Hot Chip – Need You Now (Official Video)

 

Hot stuff from Hot Chip to brighten up this gloomy morning! The band have shared another song from their upcoming album, Why Make Sense? (out May 18). ‘Need You Now’ comes along with a cool, time-bending and surreal video in which Alexis Taylor is chasing his other self. Deep, but still very light and dancey electronic tune, absolutely fantastic!

Blur – There Are Too Many of Us

Oh, there they are! Blur, yes, Blur with their new, yes, new song! ‘There Are Too Many Of Us’ is the second released single off their upcoming, long, long-awaited album, The Magic Whip (out 27 April). Mild, tender, nearly metaphysical – sounds like the album will be a very nice step out of britpop into some space, alternative rock.

Of Monsters and Men – Crystals (Lyric Video)

Good morning with some Icelandic freshness from Of Monsters and Men! After 4 years since their debut album, the band finally announced their new LP, Beneath the Skin (out June 9). And here’s a teaser – the first single off the album, ‘Crystals’ coming along with a lyric video. If you liked Me Head is an Animal, you won’t be disappointed. Indie pop just as you would expect  🙂

 

Grimes – REALiTi

New track from the lovely Grimes and it’s pretty sweet! ‘REALiTi’  is not gonna be included on the new album,  so she just decided to release it as an extra bonus. The video is a series of footage taken during her shows and travels through Asia. As for the never finished song (that’s what she says), it’s class! Dynamic rhythm and those delicate vocals, Ladies and Gentlemen, old Grimes is back! Welcome to unREALiTi!

Django Django – First Light (Official Video)

 

My beloved British Django Django are finally back with the second album Born Under Saturn (out May 5th) and here’s the brand new video for the first released comeback single ‘First Light’. Not my favorite visuals, but the dynamic psychedelic tune surely makes up for  less important little flaws. Class!

Jessie Ware – Champagne Kisses

 

Now, clearly I’m biased, but couldn’t help but share the new Jessie Ware’s video. This time it’s ‘Champagne Kisses’, another gem from her stunning album, Tough Love.  Nice colorful visuals and the vocals, of course, can’t go any better. Simple, beautiful ❤

Pink Floyd – Louder Than Words

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!

 

Of Monsters and Men – New Lyric Videos

 

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.

Stay tuned for more videos.

Baxter Dury – Pleasure

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 🙂

Russ Chimes – We Need Nothing To Collide (Soundcloud Edit)

Jamie xx- All Under One Roof Raving

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.

The video was directed by Rose Pilkington.

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.

Definitely something to be looking forward to. ❤
