Lion Bark - Two Prongs

Day 61 Lion Bark – Two Prongs

Up until now, Lion Bark have evaded my attention entirely, which is not too surprising seeing as they only have one single to their name; but boy, what a single that is. Surmising my rather relaxed, lazy Thursday evening mood perfectly, Two Prongs is a light slice of floating indie-pop, that’s summery 80’s vibe is…

Battleships - Take Your Rest

Day 60 Battleships – Take Your Rest

12 months is a long time to wait for new music from a band, however, in the case of Australia’s Battleships, I can safely say it’s been well worth the wait. Almost an entire year on from the release of their debut mini-LP ‘To You’ (a total triumph that I implore you check out), Battleships return with…

RHODES - Worry

Day 59 RHODES – Raise Your Love

I may have only posted about RHODES for the first time on this blog 10 days ago, but I feel it absolutely necessary that he is put straight back up this evening, to celebrate the release of his stunning new single, Raise Your Love. Complete with a great arty video, Raise Your Love is a lovely acoustic ballad…

Apparat - Black Water

Day 58 Apparat – Black Water

Released back in 2011, German musician Apparat’s music has only just fallen upon my ears, and as the saying “better late than never” suggests, time is irrelevant when being faced by something truly wonderful. Perhaps his best known track, Black Water is a delectable, atmospheric single that has a raging, fiery inferno at its smouldering heart. The…

Everything Everything - Photoshop Handsome

Day 57 Everything Everything – Photoshop Handsome

As a little bit of a throwback treat, today’s post is Photoshop Handsome by Everything Everything. Originally released in 2009 (how has it been four years?!?!!??), Photoshop Handsome is a unique, quirky and visionary track, that’s multitude of patchwork sound-bites combine with an energy and silky precision that is utterly magnificent. Never afraid to be different, Everything Everything are…

Dustin Tebutt - The Breach

Day 56 Dustin Tebbutt – Where I Find You

Sounding a lot like Bon Iver mastermind Justin Vernon, Dustin Tebbutt’s calming acoustic music has a pleasing universal appeal attached to it, that is perfect to sit back and relax to. Featured on his brand new debut EP ‘The Breach’, Where I Find You has a kind, organic heart that I picture being played acoustically on a beach somewhere,…

SVE - Talking To The Walls

Day 53 SVĒ – Talking to the Walls

Yesterday, I made a point of stating how taken aback I was by the volume of female songstresses releasing dazzling pop songs at the moment. Making this observation with the thought that this mini-revolution had peaked, I return today to say that I was totally wrong. Completing the hat-trick is SVĒ, an artist who, despite being…

Mononoke - Alice

Day 52 Mononoke – Alice

With Chelsea Lankes yesterday, and an incredibly hard pick between the new Say Lou Lou track and Mononoke’s Alice, I have come to the conclusion that there is something in the air for dreamy, female artists at the moment. Firstly, to keep Say Lou Lou (who I absolutely love) off this blog today, it does indicate…
