This is sort of not really new music, Son Of A Kid was once known as Dyno, who was featured on here some time ago. This is a kind of rebirth and the quality of the tracks is still stellar. Check out here.
This has a very 90’s vibe to it and is nothing short of amazing. Pure fresh fierceness. Check out here.
This is so, so good. Blues with some big soul sounds. I would kill to watch this guy live. Check out here.
Smooth, slick, slow and well-produced dubstep. Best listened to on a dark, cold London night with a broken heart. Check out here.
Somewhere between dream pop and adventure wave. Check out here.
Big, atmospheric drums take over this delicate indie sound. Check out here.
The story of Rasmus Seebach is one of great interest to me. Born into Danish pop royalty, his father Tommy Seebach was an alcoholic pop star who died suddenly. This song was originally released in Danish under the title ‘Natteravn‘, and subsequently went huge all over Scandinavia. Now he’s releasing the single with some really good English lyrics for the rest of the world. Check out here.
What you’re hearing is a demo, so don’t judge this track by the production, but more about the whole sound. I really think this guy will take off with the right record deal. Check out here.
Don’t be fooled into thinking this is a few decades old- this is very new. Yes, it’s in French. Although they do say ‘I’ve had enough’ somewhere towards the end which makes me think the lyrics aren’t as happy as the tune. They are actually Americans who have been pretending to be French for some years now. Check out here.
Danish electropop/ soul. It’s very addictive. Check out here.
This is really good electro rap from the Swedish institution that is Adam Tensta. He’s not really made impact outside of Sweden but Im pretty sure this will make a dent in the UK… Check out here.
Huge things being predicted for this lady- it just oozes talent. Soul/ pop that is mighty catchy and has that London vibe. Check out here.
This is so sugary it could rot your teeth. Happy, soulful pop from Fingersnap – the coupling of artist David McAlmont and musical tour de force Guy Davies. Fingersnap’s first release comes in the form of the Smokehouse EP that was written whilst on a writing retreat in Ireland earlier this year and recorded in London over the summer. Check out here.
Recently seen supporting Morrissey, The Courteeners and Hard-Fi following personal invites from all three artists, the rise of AllThe Young continues with the release of their third single ‘Quiet Night In’ on October 10th on Midlands Calling / Warner Bros. Records. Check out here.
This is stunning- I would be very shocked if this didn’t move you in the slightest. Following on from their meteoric rise in 2010 after being selected by the BBC to perform at Scotland’s legendary T In The Park – the band released their debut, the Sold My Soul EP, to heavy critical acclaim in April 2011. Increasingly tipped for big things by heavyweights like iTunes, BBC 6Music and a ‘single of the week’ award in the News Of The World. Check out here.
This is silly and cool at the same time. I can’t help but think that Nicki Minaj is responsible for the rise in this electro American sound- it seems to throw away all attempts at sounding and looking cool and just throwing everything out of the window to come up with something pretty unique sounding. Check out here.
Right then, it’s almost the end of the week and what better way than to enjoy some outstanding French-disco style beats from Loopalike. And best of all, it’s free to download! Check out here.
