First Listen: Sameblod ‘UR Road’

What a grim day it is in London today! Hopefully this new track from one of my favourite electropop newcomers will cheer things up. April 20th is the date of the release of their debut album on Riot Factory.


First Listen: Tulisa ‘Young’

I really didn’t think I would like Tulisa’s debut solo track. But I did. It’s nothing edgy or too cool, just good radio pop!

First Listen: Archeo ‘Glass Half Empty’

There’s been some buzz for this kid for a while now so it’s nice to hear some new stuff. It’s turning out to be a very Pop kinda week on here which is cool. This has Beyonce all over it.

First Listen: The Kill Van Kulls ‘Songs For Sinners EP’

The Kill Van Kulls are back with a new EP.

First Listen: Strangers ‘Shine On You’

I love this band. This is beautiful, and I think it’s probably going to help everyone on this Monday morning. ‘Shine On You’ is due for release on April 16th via Killing Moon Limited/Beatwolf Records.

First Listen: Estelle ft Janelle Monae ‘Do My Thing’

Singer/Songwriter/Rapper Estelle teams up with Atlantic Records label mate Janelle Monae on the funky Ne-Yo penned track, ‘Do My Thing’.

First Listen: Sam Sparro ‘The Shallow Ground’

A glimpse into upcoming Sam Sparro goodness, with a cameo from Swedish supertalent Erik Hassle. Happy Monday folks.

First Listen: Sameblod ‘Loud’

Two of my favourite Swedish popsters are back with an amazing new track. This track makes me so, so fucking happy.

First Listen: Jack Peñate ‘No One Lied’

The beautiful return. No gimmicks, just a voice and a guitar.

First Watch: Estelle ‘Thank You’

Estelle’s back on form with this new track. Gorgeous and stunning and heart breaking and beautiful.

First Listen: Rebecca Ferguson ‘Too Good To Lose (Seamus Haji Remix)’

I absolutely love this remix of Rebecca Ferguson‘s new single. Definitely an improvement from her debut (in my opinion). This is some neo Chaka Khan shit right here. Enjoy.

First Listen: Jack Robert Hardman ‘Famous’

Featured last summer, it’s nice to hear some new stuff from this chap. This cute and simple track is set for release on the 6th February 2012, through Pleasant Pursuits / Essential Music (Cooking Vinyl).

First Listen: Lana Del Rey ‘Born To Die (Woodkid Remix)’

This remix is special because it’s done by the same chap who directed the video to the same song.

First Listen: Cris Cab ‘One Thing’

I mentioned Cris Cab last week and this song’s surfaced since- it’s produced by Pharrell and it’s pretty. So here you go. Enjoy.

First Listen: Scissor Sisters feat Azealia Banks ‘Shady Love’

Well this is interesting…

First Listen: Paper Crows ‘Cloudbusting’

Previously mentioned on here back in October 2010 (seems like it was only yesterday!), this is a stunning piece of pop from Paper Crows covering the Kate Bush track ‘Cloudbusting’.

First Listen: Oh Land ‘Speak Out Now’

A new slice of pop heaven from Oh Land, to feature on a re-release of the album she launched this year.

I’ve been waiting for these guys to come out with new music for what seems like a lifetime! Cute and quirky Swedish pop. What’s more exciting is their upcoming album is produced by Miike Snow‘s Pontus Winnberg. Check out here.
