First Listen: Sam Sparro ‘The Shallow Ground’

A glimpse into upcoming Sam Sparro goodness, with a cameo from Swedish supertalent Erik Hassle. Happy Monday folks.

First Listen: Sameblod ‘Loud’

Two of my favourite Swedish popsters are back with an amazing new track. This track makes me so, so fucking happy.

First Listen: Jack Peñate ‘No One Lied’

The beautiful return. No gimmicks, just a voice and a guitar.

First Listen: Rebecca Ferguson ‘Too Good To Lose (Seamus Haji Remix)’

I absolutely love this remix of Rebecca Ferguson‘s new single. Definitely an improvement from her debut (in my opinion). This is some neo Chaka Khan shit right here. Enjoy.

First Listen: Jack Robert Hardman ‘Famous’

Featured last summer, it’s nice to hear some new stuff from this chap. This cute and simple track is set for release on the 6th February 2012, through Pleasant Pursuits / Essential Music (Cooking Vinyl).

First Listen: Lana Del Rey ‘Born To Die (Woodkid Remix)’

This remix is special because it’s done by the same chap who directed the video to the same song.

First Listen: Ayah Marar ‘Mind Controller’

Er… RAH! This is one big, big tune. I want it NOW.

First Listen: Cris Cab ‘One Thing’

I mentioned Cris Cab last week and this song’s surfaced since- it’s produced by Pharrell and it’s pretty. So here you go. Enjoy.

First Listen: Moses Melkonian ‘We Are Mighty, We Are Young’

I mentioned Moses Melkonian a while ago on here and now he’s back with a really interesting track. It’s a bit funky, it’s a bit edgy, it’s a bit warm and a bit sexy at the same time. I can’t really describe it, but that’s often a pretty good thing.

First Listen: Scissor Sisters feat Azealia Banks ‘Shady Love’

Well this is interesting…

First Listen: Paper Crows ‘Cloudbusting’

Previously mentioned on here back in October 2010 (seems like it was only yesterday!), this is a stunning piece of pop from Paper Crows covering the Kate Bush track ‘Cloudbusting’.

First Listen: Oh Land ‘Speak Out Now’

A new slice of pop heaven from Oh Land, to feature on a re-release of the album she launched this year.

First Listen: Fibes Oh Fibes! ‘Cerahtonia’

I’ve been waiting for these guys to come out with new music for what seems like a lifetime! Cute and quirky Swedish pop. What’s more exciting is their upcoming album is produced by Miike Snow‘s Pontus Winnberg. Check out here.

First Listen: Adam Lambert ‘Better Than I Know Myself’

Adam Lambert is a guilty pleasure of mine. I wanted to dislike him, but I was compelled to buy his album, and just sort of ‘got it’. It’s pure commercial pop but you feel like there’s a real heart behind the voice. This is his lead single from his upcoming second album.

First Listen: Miike Snow ‘Devils Work’

The Swedish supergroup are back with an epic track and it’s nothing short of flawless.

Listen to a preview of Amy Winehouse’s ‘Lioness’

Out next week (5th December), here’s a preview of all the tracks featured on the Hidden Treasures album along with stories of how they came about.

First Listen: Eric Solomon ‘Addicted’

I featured this guy back in summer 2010 and now he’s been signed up to Epic Records, which is a pretty good thing. This is is the sound of things to come.

First Listen: Little Boots ‘Shake’

Little Boots is back and my oh my what a comeback! Produced by Simian Mobile Disco’s James Ford, this is a very different direction but one for the better! There’s a gentle, ballearic vibe to this.

First Listen: Amy Winehouse ‘Our Day Will Come’

Here it is- Amy Winehouse‘s upcoming single from her posthumous album, Lioness. Its such a beautiful, happy, calm song. Out next month. RIP Amy. Miss you.

First Listen: Wolfette ‘Trophy Girl’

Wolfette’s new single ‘Trophy Girl’ is set to be released on 5th December. It’s a piece of cheeky electropop with some kick.
