Tongues - Colours In The Dark

Day 122 Tongues – Colours In The Dark

Ending the year on a euphoric high, I have the pleasure of introducing yet another fine Scottish electronic export Tongues. Almost undetectable online, the band came to my attention through one of my favourite music blogs Hillydilly, and is a strong, no-nonsense alternative floor-filler perfect for your DIY New Year’s Eve parties. Play this one…

Fjord - Blue

Day 120 Fjord – Blue

As the organic artist and track names suggest, Canadian duo Fjord’s track Blue is a calm, peaceful and somewhat heavenly piece of new music. With its atmospheric synths, crisp, trickling beat and soaring male (!?!) vocals, this is a beautiful end of year discovery. Not available to download yet.

A London-based electronic duo, the act are signed to Super Recordings and create crisp, atmospheric and soulful music akin to the likes of Chet Faker. Their latest single The Night (first…

Roo Panes - Know Me Well

Day 115 Roo Panes – Know Me Well

As 2014’s wave of new music comes to a close around Christmas, it offers bloggers like myself the chance to look back at some of the best new music we’ve heard this year, and also pay particular attention to the music that we (sometimes unforgivably) may have missed. Roo Panes’ Know Me Well is a great example of something…
