LAZY SUMMER

29 Oct

7026843-md

Digits (aka Alt Altman) has been likened to a cross between a predictable Joy Division and an even more predictable Hot Chip.   They’ve recently released an album, “Hold it Close” of which I’ve only heard a few tracks.   You’re Going to Age has got a great swing of vocals, drums and synth bass line resulting in an understated and effortless electro pop track that has been on repeat (well at least a few times this morning anyway).

DIGITS – YOU’RE GOING TO AGE

ALSO:

JUPITER – STARLIGHTER (STEVE MOORE REMIX)

SCOTT HARDKISS – YOU’RE THE STAR (KRIS MENACE REMIX)

SOMETHING TO FINISH

29 Oct

Untitled-1

A self-proclaimed bedroom producer Pierce (Dominic Fabrig) has certainly made an impression on me! I’m having considerable trouble trying to articulate why I like this track (Something To Finish) so much, having put the track on repeat while trying to write this riveting little blurb I have come to the conclusion that it is just – Rad. Anyway rather then listen to me rabble on about my lack of ability to describe music I like, how about you just listen and come to your own conclusion? Also check out the bonus track it comes highly recommended, should carry you through to Friday and well, just make you smile!

SAY NO TO TROPICAL POP

Epic remix action from Hey Champ, G.L.O.V.E.S. and Classixx!! Hells yes …

Also, I’ve been listening to the new album by Annie.  Personally I find some of the tracks a little girly – it could do with a tad more darkness every now and then but overall it’s a winner.   Have a listen to All Night and let us know what you think … Buy it from itunes here.

PASSION PIT – LITTLE SECRETS (HEY CHAMP REMIX)

THE SCARE – COULD BE BAD (G.L.O.V.E.S Remix)

HOLY GHOST! – I WILL COME BACK (CLASSIXX ACAPULCO NIGHTS VERSION)

ALSO:

ANNIE – ALL NIGHT

LACQUER – BEHIND

Just received a smooth little production from Russia by way of Xuman Records. I’ve got to be honest, I can’t say I really have a clue as to what is going on in music scene in Russia but if this track is anything to go by then there’s obviously a hotbed of synth pop talent waiting to be discovered!

The boys from Xuman are soon planning to release a compilation called “Tales” so keep an eye out! Here’s the first track produced and featuring Xuman (the label owner) with his label-mates called Panic.

XUMAN – PANIC
