Grovesnor fills that void of what I thought Hot Chip and Jamie Lidell were going to do in their future but I don’t see this style coming from them. Grovesnor nails soft rock with soul, summer jam playlist night cap must have!
Sweden’s Labrador Records is on a tear, they just owned Europe with the recent drop of The Radio Dept. new album and now they introduce Pallers which might be on a softer less poppy tip yet still lush and dreamy.
I love a song that hones in on a sound that you love, a focused 8 bit melody usually gets me, maybe its my generation of video game systems, either way I should give Wax Stag more credit than that, beautiful track for Sega Genesis fantasy game lovers.
Don’t judge this song by its intro, i’m not so fond of it, give it a sec…..there it is now its good and dancefloor ready, definitely has hints of what grabbed me from some of the first DFA records.
The debut EP from Vancouver’s synth pop duo Julian Carnrite and Kevin Schmidt has the right idea with a stripped down poppy soundtrack to a late night that is filled with inviting random friends out to hang out and enjoying cheap wine. The song Cool Your Shoes reminds me a little bit of Circlesquare meets Midwest Product, definitely a great cool down track for the long summer nights.
The new Machinedrum LP is finally out and the track Para Did is on repeat all the time at my place, its on this Outkast meets Blackalicious tip. Travis will be doing a lot this year so this won’t be the last time i’ll be posting on him.
I already posted this Fever Ray song but it was the remix, the lyrics won’t get out of my head i’m usually not a big lyrics fan so that means a lot I guess in my small world.
I don’t know much at all about the Clashing Egos but I do know Joakim always comes with the heat on remixes. The producer from Paris take us on a Beverly Hills sounding soundtrack cut with dreamy stabs that never begs for attention and layer upon layer of synth melodies, definitely worth your time.
