Day 89 Tom Odell – Sense

Wow this is beautiful. Stripped-back and full of lovely, spine-tingling chords, Tom Odell’s simple piano and vocals arrangement is quite stunning.

Day 88 Darwin Deez – Free

One of the strangest looking men in music, Darwin Deez is back with new music that is pretty great.

Released again as a Hottest Record in the World for Zane Lowe last night, Let It Go is music of the highest…
