Stream: Little Daylight – “Overdose” (Future Islands Remix)

April 17, 2014 No comments yet

I’m a little enamored with Future Islands right now. Besides the way lead singer Samuel T. Herring completely won me over at their Coachella show (more on that later), the synth-pop trio has bamboozled my Thursday in the best way possible with a remix of fellow synth-pop trio Little Daylight’s “Overdose.” Transcending the heavy bass and female vocal […]

Video: Indiana – “Ready For Your Love” (Gorgon City feat MNEK Cover in the Radio 1 Live Lounge)

April 17, 2014 No comments yet

“Was that okay?” Ohmygosh – I just fell in love with Indiana right there and then when she stopped by BBC’s Radio 1 Live Lounge and covered Gorgon City and MNEK’s “Ready For You Love.” And then she started singing and I fell even more in love. There’s something about trading in the vocals from the original for female vocals – almost a subdued power that […]

Stream: SomeKindaWonderful – “Reverse” (Tomas Barfod Remix)

April 17, 2014 No comments yet

Last year LA/Cleveland based SomeKindaWonderful engulfed my ears with his release of “Reverse.”  Now following the song’s recent resurrection to the internet with a release of an official video last month comes a remix from DJ/producer Tomas Barfod. Slowing down the song to induce it with a mystifying moody wash of glimmering synths, Tomas transforms the tantalizing 60′s soul of […]

Stream: Lykke Li – “Gunshot”

April 16, 2014 No comments yet

Lykke Li just unveiled her latest song “Gunshot” and its searing Lykke emotion at it’s best. A stark 80′s backing sets the stage for heart-wrenching lyrics of heartbreak that will leave you longing for more Lykke the way she describes her love as “longing for your poison.” It’s pristine pop inspired by her recent breakup […]

Stream: Halsey – “Ghost”

“I like the sad eyes. Bad guys. Mouth full of white lies.” “How do you know when a song is good?” is something a friend in finance asked me at Coachella when I was telling her what I do. “It’s something you feel,” I responded. But the truth is it’s more than that. It’s something that makes […]

Stream: DP – “Jabar”

April 15, 2014 No comments yet

True Virginia spitness right here. I first heard DP on a bonus track from fellow VA Beach producer Sir Yogaflame called “Guerilla Warfare” and I knew that Mr. @gatkingcole would be one to watch. Here, on “Jabar” DP lays down the rawest of bars that ‘been a long time coming.’ All over a whirring but […]

Today, in anticipation of this summer’s Röyksopp and Robyn Do It Again Tour 2014, the Swedish pop goddess and Norwegian electronic duo released a snippet of their newest joint effort “Monument.” Accompanied by eerily minimal visuals, the teaser seems to set a fantastically haunting tone for the collaborators’ five-track mini-album “Do It Again” out May 26th. In […]

Late Night Snack: “Stand Still” feat. Micky Green (Slow Magic Remix)

April 9, 2014 No comments yet

This Slow Magic remix of Flight Facilities’ “Stand Still” featuring Micky Green is so nice. It’s smooth electronics seduced with those whimsical whistles that reminds me of the simple sweetness of Peter Bjorn and John’s “Young Folks.” And then those vocals bubble up to the surface at the chorus like the welcomed self-described imaginary friend Slow Magic is. It’s so […]
