Kitten are sounding good…

Favourite band of the week and featured here a while back. There’s so much going on with this sound, and it’s all balanced so well.

Little Dee ‘Auto Pilot’ at #SBTVShowcase

I was browsing through some Youtube clips last night and I stumbled across this by Little Dee and thought ‘wow’, so here you.

Cheesy Swedish pop o’clock

This is so damn catchy, and I can tell as many of you will hate this as you will love it, but who cares. Le Kid are as pop as they come.

Free Download: Man Like Me ‘Green Lanes’

London-based indie group and Alfitude faves, Man Like Me, have teamed up with Samsung to offer an exclusive track for free that won’t be on their upcoming album. ‘Green Lanes’ is one of three songs to feature on a short video that the band have made with Samsung. Braindead (only ever performed live previously) and London Town are the two other songs. Download the track here!

First Watch: Toddla T & Shola Ama ‘Alive’

A while back these two got together and made an amazing track. They’ve joined forces again and, once again, they’ve created another stormer of a tune.

New Music: Diamond Rings

This screams fierce. New electro pop from Canada. Check out here.

So what are we thinking about this new Muse Olympics song?

It’s been getting very mixed reviews since it’s launch last week. Muse have recorded the official song for the Olympics in London. It doesn’t seem to fit in with the whole neon colour, wacky shapes theme the organisers are going for, but for what it’s worth, it is a good Muse track. I mean, the opening ceremony is set to look like a farm- and then you have this piece of music to be played before each medal ceremony. I don’t know. Weird.

First Listen: Kymberley Kennedy ‘The Kym Possible Mixtape’

Kymberley Kennedy’s back with a new mixtape. It’s good.

First Listen: Little Mix ‘Wings’

This is the first proper single from Little Mix the most recent series X-Factor UK. I should not like it but I think it’s amazing!

New Music: Ask Embla

I’m not sure why I like this, but I do. There’s a sadness to it but it’s still a bit fun. Check out here.

New Music: Jordan Oliver

Promising new hip hop from Cairns.  Jordan has just been nominated for a NIMA (National Indigenous Music Award) for Song Of The Year for this song, and he’s also announced he’ll be on the line up of the Bondi Music Festival on July 28. Check out here.
