New Music: Clement Marfo and the Frontline

Sometimes you listen to something and you can imagine it hitting the radio stations almost straight away. Like this. It’s always exciting round this time of the year because you start getting hints on what will be big in 2012 and chances of this group being unheard of next year are slim to none. Check out here.


New Music: 2morrows Victory

Think of a darker Gym Class Heroes sound and you get these guys. They record inside a bespoke studio with all instruments rigged up to create a sound ready for live stages. Check out here.

New Music: Tamara Blessa

I like this- it’s sort of Corinne Bailey-Rae but with an even more innocent sounding voice. This track to me is the standout from what I’ve heard so far but I definitely see loads of potential for this lady. Check out here.

New Music: The Other Tribe

the other tribe

I call this indie-disco. It’s amazing and very addictive, but make sure you listen to it on big speakers for maximum effect. Check out here.

New Music: G-Eazy

This is probably one of the best songs I’ve come across in the last couple of months. Mix 50’s sounds with hip hop from someone that looks a bit like James Dean and you get this. It’s fucking good. Check out here.

New Music: Varren Wade

This track made me smile, which is a change from all the serious electropop being thrown around my inbox these days. Fresh UK rnb. He’s been working with Neyo, Mario WinansJamelia, Wretch 32, Harmony [Chris Brown, Chipmunk, Maroon 5], Hypertone [JLS, RD, Mike Hough], and Fullerfix [Sway, Snoop Dogg]. Check out here.

New Music: Lemâitre

I see this as the new Röyksopp. Sweetly addictive Norwegian electropop. Check out here

New Music: Rob & Nino

Nothing out of the ordinary from this bit of Swedish pop. It’s just fun. Check out here.

New Music: Dinner for Dinosaurs

Swedish pop/ funk that’s really easy to listen to and really easy to like. Check out their little bi-lingual video clip. The singer’s got a killer smooth voice. Check out here.

New Music: Iggy Azalea

This has gone viral since early November and it’s a big big dirty rap and I don’t know whether to laugh or think ‘fuck yea’ when she sings ‘hayends in the aeyar’. Check out here.

New Music: The Approval

Don’t be tricked into thinking this is one of those Abercrombie videos – although they do look models. They are, aren’t they? This is pop that sounds like American acoustic indie but it’s actually done by two British kids. It’s pleasant enough. Check out here.

New Music: Larry g(EE)

I rather like this. It’s soul and its so refreshing to hear because it just seems like some real genuine talent. Check out here.
