It’s Swedish. And to be honest, I’ve been learning the language for almost two years but I don’t really understand what this song by Linda Sundblad is all about but it’s just too good not to listen to!
Previously featured on here a few weeks ago, this is a free download of some epic proportions. Enjoy!
Adorable Swedish indie pop that’s just impossible not to love. Check out here.
And that’s no mean feat! Such a huge fan of these guys and this track is so insanely fresh.
In association with Black Atlantic, Tiger has created ’Hidden Depths’ – a series of club and live events that explore a different side of some of the UK’s most innovative record labels. The series of shows will blend live and club performances as each label curates a night to explore the influences that informed their conception, present their current leading lights and offer a glimpse into their future musical movements.
The series will launch at fabric on Wednesday 16th May with a takeover of Room 1 by the seminal label Ninja Tune, with a showcase of burgeoning new talent. The spectrum of imprints and artists they are involved with will be showcased, with the Ninja label itself taking centre stage. Sister labels Big Dada Records and Brainfeeder will also be represented to provide the audience with a night that delves into the depths of the Ninja Tune label.
The show includes a rare performance from Brainfeeder’s Thundercat, in what will be only be the second time he has played in the UK and his first headline show on these shores. Thundercat will be backed by the astonishing talents of Ninja affiliated artist Floating Points and new signing Slugabed, with Offshore representing Big Dada. This event is strictly for over-18s.

With Stockholm as the physical base, but with the mindset of a modern day Transnational, Zhala’s music is futuristic, Cosmic Pop mixed up with Witchcraft Indie – for the ones who grew up with a little bit of everything, whether it was Rave, Bollywood or RnB. Check out here.
This time it’s a smooth reworking of Blue Jeans by Odd Future’s The Internet.
I don’t know how to describe this but it’s catchy as hell and so, so happy. Check out here.
I wanted to cry when I watched this video because it is terrifying and just plain weird. But I can’t deny the beats are immense. Check out here.
I’m really loving this! Such good pop! A*M*E is now signed to Gary Barlow’s record label so keep a look out for more soon!
Ladies and gentlemen, welcome to the newest musical genre to hit mainstream: porn pop. Yep. I know this blog is read by a ton of people so I won’t elaborate any more, you’ll have to just use your imagination. Or do some more research. But this track has satisfied me in a soul destroying way, just as any good porn should. Check out here.
‘Neon Lights’ is the debut MofoHifi single-track release for emerging Spanish producer, Alizzz. Tough analogy glitch-beats, fuzz bass and glossy synth-bathed rhythms are steeped in the rich sonic textures of Alizzz’s warm melodies.
Influenced by indie, soul, funk, maximalism, dubstep and RnB but with no firm allegiance to one-specific genre, Alizzz is a welcome addition to the growing roster of a label the likes of Phonat and Bobby Tank call home. Check out here.
A gorgeous song to end the week with by Jessie Ware.
