‘Oh POW!’ is all that I could say when I heard the first two seconds of this clip- this is pure talent and the girl doesn’t even try! Best that I’ve heard in weeks, this needs to go viral immediately! Check out here.
A progression of house music, combing the big beats of dance music with the vocal elements of pop. Check out here.
Lush baroque popcraft and dark, surreal dubstep stylings. Check out here.
Captivating, freaky sounding, atmospheric pop. Check out here.
British indie pop produced by Coldplay’s producer-of-the-moment, Danton Supple. Check out here.
And then moving away from home to a new city and dancing to the height of their popularity with anthems like this:
They seemed to jump from one sound to another and making it always sound like it was always the way it was. Their most recent album didn’t really shake the airwaves much because it got a bit too folky but this is one of my favourite tracks:
But now they’re back with this beautiful track that seems to mix up all the genres they’ve played around with over the last ten years while also sounding really cute and fresh. Just as well, for a Singles album.
This voice is INSANE! So so so good. Check out here.
This is quietly powerful pop that picks you up on the chorus and drops you back down again using some trademark Scandinavian beats. Love it. Check out here.
The Swedish supergroup are back with an epic track and it’s nothing short of flawless.
Earlier this year, he topped the charts with the trouser-shaking subsonic wobble of ‘Burning Up’ (which enjoyed support from Bloody Beetroots, Plump DJ’s, Silvio Berlusconi and many more). Check out here.
‘Junkie-pop’ from an Aussie band based in New York. Check out here.
This is an absolute bender of a remix by NTEIBINT to get you through the last few hours on this Friday.
And it’s pretty cool! Designed by the genius that is Sir Peter Blake as part of the new Brits (last year the same statue was designed by Vivienne Westwood), it does look very pop-arty and very British. Sir Peter Blake is known for designing The Beatle’s Sgt Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band cover.
Indie synth with a breezy sound. Check out here.
As we’re on a jazzy vibe today, I have some fun news. Brand New Heavies– one of the most successful and enduring acts of the acid jazz scene, will celebrate their 20th Anniversary with two December shows at Under The Bridge in London on December 13th and 14th. The shows will coincide with the release of new compilation album, ‘The Best Of 20 Years’, two CDs containing the best of the band’s career to date.
Early hits ‘Never Stop’ and ‘Dream Come True’ earned the band a reputation as a formidable live act and their reinterpretations of popular standards, such as ‘Midnight At The Oasis’, Carole King’s ‘You’ve Got A Friend’ and the Stevie Wonder classic ‘I Don’t Know Why (I Love You)’, brought major global chart success. Check out here.
This is such a feel good mix of sounds- if you’re into your Prince and Jamiroquai you will love, love, love this. Download this free cheeky bootleg from Jem Stone that’s been causing major damage in his sets of late. SexyMuthaFlapper is laced with Jem’s current electro-swing vibe, as can be heard on the ‘Jem Stone’s Perpetual Lotion‘ EP, out now on Freshly Squeezed.
Right, this is one freaky-ass video yet it seems to charm you towards the end if you watch it with the lights on. The track has that old-skool funk/ brass sound which is fun to listen to. Check out here.
This is Nicola Roberts‘ latest single, and what can only be described as bubblegum, radio-friendly pop. Only it’s not being played on the radio. Maybe she needs a little Pitbull cameo…
