New Music: The Milk

A fitting throwback to Motown and 60’s RnB. Check out here.

A cool video to inspire you this week

zZz is playing: Grip, is the first video of Roel Wouters aka Xelor. it’s a one take, top shot music video with trampoline gymnasts simulating typical video effects. The video has been recorded live, as part of the opening ‘Nederclips’ at the Stedelijk museum ‘s-Hertogenbosch SM’S (curated by Bart Rutten).

The project was commissioned by the TAX-videoclipfonds. The important
criteria were that the audience at the opening would be able to witness the whole shoot, and that the videoclip would be added to the exhibition
immediately after the shoot. This meant we had no option to reshoot or edit if something went wrong. This made the whole crew so focussed that we performed even better than any of us could have imagined.

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.

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.

This is England ’86

I was genuinely excited when I found out that This Is England was coming to the small screen. The film was an outstanding piece of British work, and seeing as the entire cast and crew reformed to carry on the story through the 80’s- I was sure this would probably be the best bit of telly I would watch this year. And I was definitely right- The story picks up 3 years later from the film, and it was a lot lighter and fun than the original flick, without losing it’s real essence. Check it out. Channel 4, Tuesdays at 10pm.

England’s new soccer kit

… is blue. Why? The English flag has no blue in it. Designed by Peter Saville, who is probably one of the most iconic graphic designers in the UK right now thanks to his famous records sleeves. I don’t know. The more I look at it the more I like it… Just seems a bit wrong.
