New Music: The Growl

This is the kind of dirty rock that destroys you but leaves you wanting more. Check out here.

I can’t imagine it being easy covering a Jessie Ware track…

… but I reckon this attempt by Wild Cub is pretty nice.

First Listen: Icona Pop ‘We Got The World’

Another new electropop gem from those cheeky Swedes.

New Music: Kae Sun

Every now and again you hear something that sets your imagination off and you wonder whether this could potentially be a huge single. I don’t know whether it makes me feel happy or sad on the inside when I listen to this, but it has a rare charm that I can’t put my finger to. Check out here.

First Watch: KOF ‘Fire On The Mountain’

Alternative RnB KOF starts his tour tonight in Manchester. KOF is also currently releasing three bundles of his music for free via Soundcloud to his fans. The bundles, entitled the SOUL Series feature previously unreleased and unheard music and is an offshoot of ‘An Alternative Soul’.

One Trick Pony

I don’t think there’s many people who are more mental than Linkoban coming out of the Danish music scene right now… This track is nuts.

New Music: Dutch Uncles

This is happy synth with some quirky percussion. Good stuff. Check out here.

The Power of Love

This reworking of the Frankie Goes To Hollywood classic by Gabrielle Alpin is too gorgeous not to share.

New Music: Turrentine Jones

British indie with a strong Velvet Underground vibe thrown in. Check out here.

First Listen: Steed Lord ‘Secret Love’

A nice slice of disco from those crazy Icelandic party monsters.

New Music: Jonti

This is probably the cutest track you’ll hear all winter. Jonti is supporting Gotye on some European dates, which is exciting. Check out here.

Remember Booty Luv?

Responsible for many university memories thanks to a certain track, Booty Luv are back with this STOMPER of a track- I can’t help but love this hard!

Lose my head…

This song by Body Language goes a bit crazy after the 2:00 minute mark, and for that I want to share it with you. This is what good disco sounds like. Nice.

Live: Woodkid at Queen Elizabeth Hall London

I don’t want to say much about what I saw Woodkid do this evening at the Southbank Centre, just because it was indescribably huge and needs to be experienced in the real. All I can say though is… awe-inspiringly epic and perfect. Probably one of the best gigs I’ve been to, period.

New Music: Young Pharaohs

Indie and synth with a bit of RnB in a very quiet, and sinister way. Check out here.

Sebastien Tellier tours the UK in December!

One of my favourite Frenchies is coming to the UK in December for a series of dates around the country. I saw him once in London and it was ridiculously good. He’s also releasing a couple of new remix EP’s- find out more here.

New Music: Reuben Hollebon

There’s a warmth that comes out of this new indie/ folk act, but the voice adds a bit of quirkiness which is fun. Check out here.
