Currently featured in the Gorillaz’ lush new single ‘Doncamatic’, I’m a little excited about Daley. I reckon he might be huge this time next year in the UK with his crisp, innocent voice and simple, soulful tunes. He’s like a chilled out Erik Hassle (the hair…) You can check out his BBC Introducing session here, or go to his Myspace here and get a free download.
I’ve featured Liam Bailey on here a couple of times already- and I saw him at Tottenham Court Road station yesterday singing to himself in that cocksure ‘Im going to be big’ kind of way. Of course I didn’t stop him, he probably would have hit me. But it did make me wonder what happened to him- he was meant to release something last month and I didn’t really hear much about it. Anyway, I still don’t know much but I see that he’s now signed to Amy Winehouse’s label, Lioness. And the songs on his’ So Down, Cold’ E.P are pretty amazing. Above is one such song, and you can hear the rest here.
By Looptroop Rockers: ‘ Following the latest election in Sweden (September 19) we wrote, and recorded this song – responding to a racist party being voted in to the Swedish parliament in particular, and to the extreme right wing winds blowing over European and world politics in general. The feelings of frustration and anger had to be channeled some way, and the very day after the election we met in the Wax Cabinet studio to voice our opinion about history repeating itself, and Sweden being an even colder country this fall…’ Check out here.
This is the new single by Gorillaz. It features someone called Daley, who I’ve been meaning to write something about for a couple of weeks but never got round to it. I will do it though- his vocals are perfect for this tune!
Wow. Woow. Wooow. When Doves Cry is probably the best thing to come out of the 80’s, and Robyn is probably one of the best things to come out of the 90’s, so you know… I don’t know where this sentence is going to be honest, I’ve had some wine. This is pretty amazing though.
You can buy it online for £3.99 today from HMV! I didn’t know Stuart Price produced this album- going to give it a listen on the way to work tomorrow and see what all the fuss is about.
Stunning dramatic slow dub with a big voice. The undertones on ‘Limit To Your Love’ are mind blowing. Something about James Blake reminds me of Jamie Woon. Check out here.
23-year-old triple threat Danielle DeLaite has been on the stage since the age of three-years-old. She has travailed through the trials and tribulations of failed recording contracts and unscrupulous agencies yet she has never given up on her dream of being a performer. Result? ‘Nothing to Wear’ is a TUNE- specially the Israel remix below.
Some brand new stuff for you here. I love this girl’s look- so hot. New York Based Bekele carries that polished NY club sound well- I forget that I’m stuck on a wet Sunday afternoon in London when ‘Popstitute’ comes on. What is a Popstitute? ‘In the context of the song, a Popstitute is someone who takes charge of the party and seduces the crowd to get up and dance, giving everyone a sort of a musical hard-on’. LOVE IT! With almost half a million hits on her Myspace, she’s not going to be unsigned for very long. Watch out for the upcoming debut EP, “Confessions of a Popstitute”. Check out here.
I’m seeing him live in Brixton next year. Excited.
I got a bit excited when I heard this – best of British! ‘Up All Night’ just sounds so so good. Produced by Diplo and Switch. Check out here.
Up and coming singer from Sweden- contains all the classic Swedish perfectpop ingredients. Check out here.
A beautiful, sexy sound from a group of Essex boys (have you been watching The Only Way Is Essex..? Amazing!) Anway, Under The Stars is so so so good. They compare to Friendly Fires and Delphic a little. Check out here. You can also get a free download on that link called ‘Youth’.
You can just tell this girl is going to be massive when she gets proper promotion. Would she beat Lily Allen in a fight? Probably not, but she’d probably leave a few nasty scratches… Check out here.
