New Music: Talay Riley

This has blown my mind away. Haven’t been this excited about a new artist in a a long time. Talay Riley is pretty unique in my eyes- when you first give him a listen it just sounds like generic RnB, but the more you listen the more it sounds different. You might recognise him from featuring in Chipmunk’s ‘ Look For Me’. Check out here.

New Music: Loick Essien

British grime, produced by grime powermaster Labrinth (a Simon Cowell discovery…) Check out here.

New Music: The Naked and Famous

New Zealand based indie electro type band- really lovely optimistic sounds. Check out here.

New Music: Mary Ndiaye

A mix of afrobeat and eurobeat in that clean cut Swedish pop kinda way. Check out here.

If you’re still in autumn denial mode…

Why do I live in London when you can have this much somewhere else in the world? This is the type of song that would get top 10 in Eurovision. Cheesy but summery.

New Music: Littlemarbles

Fun Swedish indie pop. ‘En galning pa stan’ is specially good. Check out here.

New Music: Oskar Linnros

This song is currently number 1 in Sweden. I can’t understand what he’s singing but it’s a clean fresh kinda song. Check out here.

I hate to admit it but…

… this is actually a really good single. I was always on Team Olly, but this is probably the best ‘debut’ song from any of the X Factor winners previous (bar Leona Lewis!). But then, he is sort of cheating because ‘Ambitions’ is a cover, originally recorded by Norwegian band Donkeyboy.

New Music: Skittles

If you’ve been following my Skinnerisms this month, then you’ll probably like Skittles.  This Manchester based MC mixes his own style with a little bit of The Streets and some Scroobius Pip along the way.

Click here to download Skittles’ free EP called ‘prE:P’, in anticipation for his upcoming album, ‘Poor with £100 Trainers’, coming out soon on Broke’n’£nglish‘s label Estate. Definitely one to look out for!

New Music: The Pierces

These two girls freak the shit out of me. But they have a weird captivating Simon & Garfunkel vibe about them. I’m not sure if it’s an act, or if they genuinely are this scary. Check out here.

‘White Knuckle Ride’ Remixes by Penguin Prison and Monarchy

Culture Pop are hosting the Monarchy and Penguin Prison remixes of Jamiroquai’s new single, ‘White Knuckle Ride’. My chosen one has to be Penguin Prison- nothing that dude does fucks up!

First Listen: Jamiroquai ‘White Knuckle Ride’ (Full Version)

Above is the full version of White Knuckle Ride. Yea! Also, you’ve got 6 days left to listen to Jamiroquai on BBC Radio 1. Skip to the 1hr55 mark to hear the interview and 2hr22 to hear the full song again. Funky to the max. Check out some clips from his recent London gig here.
