I’m still here, just busy earning…

Cheesy? Sry.

Go Wolf

27 Nov

With a feature on Kitsune’s newest compilation album (which has featured the likes of Two Door Cinema Club, Bloc Party, Friendly Fires and Foals) Go Wolf deserves our attention. If “buzzworthy” and “breakthrough act” are still relevant measures, the group fits the part, succeeding at making indie disco pop that is increasingly being played out and under-executed. In other words, I’m excited to see where they go next, but this is enough for now.

Some New, Some Old

Sunopsis: Theme Park meets Foals

Bretonlabs is back in tip-top shape after escaping to Iceland in 2012 to record their debut LP at Sigur Ros’ Sundlaugin studio. ENVY is the first taste from their Sophomore LP War Room Stories, out Feb 3rd.

And for good measure, a new single from Keane set to promote their new “Best of Keane” album, that you can buy here.

Fat Grooves and Old Apps

11 Nov

Shazam (the app) has held a funny place in my life. For the most part I tag a song and never go back to listen again. Often I’m just checking if my music knowledge is as good as I think it is. Which can be disappointing when I find out a Said The Whale song is not new Spoon material.

Other times I’m just checking who’s responsible for the fat groove I’m experiencing, convincing myself I will go out and buy it when I get a chance. But I never do.

What this has led to, however, is a certain excitement when opening the app and going through old tags. Every once in a while I rediscover something that really deserved my attention. Today that was the band Kid Astray. Below is a great song with some better dancing, so enjoy. Also, for good measure, a Huey Lewis song that I tagged a year ago (re: fat groove).
