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.

2013: A Round Up of Things To Come

24 Jan

To be honest, I made a ‘best of’ list for 2012 – but I didn’t release it (clearly). The reason being that I have to compete with all of these blogs, and then some. It’s daunting, and it’s frustrating, but it’s also the reality of running a music blog in today’s culture. In the end, there is nothing I could have said that hadn’t already been said by another blog. And so I said nothing at all (for almost 3 months).

I now extend an olive branch.

This post contains everything of importance that has me excited for 2013 – as a sort of apology/consolation prize for the lack of content you have been receiving on this blog as of late.

Alt-J

Never posted about these guys, but they were easily the best album of 2012… If you haven’t already heard of them, I envy your ignorance.

Everything Everything

Their new record Arc takes the idiosyncrasy of their debut Man Alive, and molds it into much more accessible pop (which I’m always a fan of).

I wrote about Zulu Winter as a Hype 2012 band back in January – and it seems they’ve lived up to the title. Zulu Winter’s debut album ‘Language’ released today, and you can stream it all live here. It’s good.
