The Antlers - Palace

Day 212 The Antlers – Palace

Although my knowledge of The Antlers only really revolves around their critically acclaimed third album ‘Hospice’ (2009), it is a real pleasure to find them back in my life with some brand new music. The first song to be released from their forthcoming LP ‘Familiars’, Palace is a twinkling lullaby that’s gorgeous, sonorous instrumentation (especially those trumpets) will…

Reuben And The Dark - Bow And Arrow

Day 211 Reuben And The Dark – Bow And Arrow

Having released two solo records under his own name, Reuben Bullock has embraced the darkness by adding three extra players to his new outfit, aptly named Reuben And The Dark. With a debut album in the pipeline, Bow And Arrow is the band’s second official release and is a marvellous example of uplifting indie-folk that will definitely…

PEACE - World Pleasure

Day 209 PEACE – World Pleasure

While reading up on PEACE’s heroic new single World Pleasure, I came across a DIY article on the track that describes it as “So downright funky it makes Chic look like they’re doing ambient drone.” I don’t think I could even attempt to try and describe it in any better words, but I might just try… Almost…

Sam Smith - Stay With Me

Day 208 Sam Smith – Stay With Me

Earlier this week, Sam Smith released a new single, and the world of music went utterly crazy for it.

And if the buzz wasn’t staggering enough, then the song…

Rae Morris - Do You Even Know

Day 207 Rae Morris – Do You Even Know?

With one of the year’s stand-out singles already under her belt, Rae Morris follows-up her spellbinding release Skin with an equally beautiful and impeccably fresh new single, Do You Even Know? The songs light, processed beat is a buoyant staple throughout the track, allowing the quirky yet comforting blend of natural electronics, luscious strings and excitable synths to weave…

The Black Keys - Fever

Day 205 The Black Keys – Fever

Having started this blog after the release of ‘El Camino’ in 2011, the only time that The Black Keys have actually featured on here was a live version of their boozy sing-along anthem Little Black Submarine at Reading Festival 2012, a performance that I was lucky enough to see live, and won’t be forgetting any-time soon. Fast forward to 2014,…

Tove Lo - Habits

Day 204 Tove Lo – Habits

My music-discovery net has had a large hole in it. For almost 11 months now, Swedish pop princess Tove Lo has somehow managed to evade my attention, despite her well hyped music legacy. That gaping hole has finally been patched up as I share with you (if you haven’t heard it already) Tove Lo’s amazing pop…

HAERTS - Call My Name

Day 203 HAERTS – Call My Name

With their full length debut album expected to be released later this year, synth-dreamers HAERTS have just shared a brand new song, Call My Name and it’s an absolute stunner. Toning it down from the likes of Wings and All The Days, Call My Name is a feather-light synth ballad that effortlessly swoons the listener with its gorgeous vocals, touching lyrics…
