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.
The Swedish supergroup are back with an epic track and it’s nothing short of flawless.
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.
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.
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.
Wolfette’s new single ‘Trophy Girl’ is set to be released on 5th December. It’s a piece of cheeky electropop with some kick.
Soul and dubstep are a rare marriage that seldom work, but when they do they yield stunningly amazing and deep results. This track from Switch (Dave Taylor) is just mindblowing and grows into a bigger and bigger climax without changing beats. Check out here.
King Krule’s voice is just so damn grown. Previously known as Zoo Kid- he’s only 17 yet his sounds are so well balanced. His self titled EP is out next month on Panther Sounds.
Back in August 2010 I mentioned Sunday Girl and anticipating big things for this very talented Londoner. Anyway, I guessed right- if this song is anything to go by. It gives me memories of listening to one of my favourite 90’s summer songs, Karen Ramirez’s ‘Looking For Love’. Listen to more here.
This has been huge in her native Sweden, and it’s a bit weird for me why she’s still only getting an underground buzz over here in the UK. But then again Robyn took a really long time before she blew here, so I hope the same kicks for Tove Styrke. Cos she’s frickin’ good.
“Goth Pop’ Visions of Trees create a haunting and penetrating sound that takes advantage of the sonic freedom afforded by electronic music to simultaneously evoke the alienation of urban life and the austerity of nature.”
I featured Lovelle back in May, and now she’s back with this catchy bit of summer house with Ray Foxx. Out on 25 September on Defected.

It’s not out til September but this should keep you going til then. I didn’t think Example could sound better than his last effort but it sounds killer.
They’re back! A darker sound to their usual stuff- it’s been eight years since Blink-182 released a single and this is a welcome return!
Get People are one of my favourite bands this year. “Picking up where last year’s Careless/Odyssey double A-side left off, Get People’s sophomore EP release Rain Tears is another slice of infectious, intelligent pop music. Rain Tears will be released on Friends vs Records on July 11th 2011.”
