This is pure, fun, well written pop rock made by some really cool guys from the USA. Loomis & The Lust have this 60’s surf SoCal vibe about them that cheers you up a little bit every time you listen. More importantly though, these guys don’t take themselves too seriously, and as a result they just kinda ooze coolness… Check out some tunes below or go to their Myspace here. Do it, they’re really good!
Stumbled across this lovely band on Myspace a few days ago. Hailing from the North West of England and taking influence from artists such as Afta-1, The Knife, and 8o’s synth-pop bands Yazoo and Telex, their hybrid sound fuses experimental productions with delicate vocals and nimble hooks to create seductively heady music. Check out here and give these couple of tracks a spin.
I’ve heard about these guys for a while but never got round to mentioning them- a good mix of electropop and hip hop, American style. Check out here.
Already causing a stir with music blogs all over the place, Yadi won’t be unsigned for long. Guillotine is pretty good. Check out here.
A fitting throwback to Motown and 60’s RnB. Check out here.
This has blown my mind away. Haven’t been this excited about a new artist in a a long time. Talay Riley is pretty unique in my eyes- when you first give him a listen it just sounds like generic RnB, but the more you listen the more it sounds different. You might recognise him from featuring in Chipmunk’s ‘ Look For Me’. Check out here.
New Zealand based indie electro type band- really lovely optimistic sounds. Check out here.
This 9 year old kid beats Rihanna HANDS DOWN! Will Smith’s little girl…

If you’ve been following my Skinnerisms this month, then you’ll probably like Skittles. This Manchester based MC mixes his own style with a little bit of The Streets and some Scroobius Pip along the way.
Click here to download Skittles’ free EP called ‘prE:P’, in anticipation for his upcoming album, ‘Poor with £100 Trainers’, coming out soon on Broke’n’£nglish‘s label Estate. Definitely one to look out for!
These two girls freak the shit out of me. But they have a weird captivating Simon & Garfunkel vibe about them. I’m not sure if it’s an act, or if they genuinely are this scary. Check out here.
Skrein has been around for a little while in the UK hip hop/ MC scene. His track ‘Reach’ for the Adulthood film is class, and reminds me a lot of Plan B’s first album. Check out here.
French power electropop. Very good. Check out here.
I’ve been meaning to feature someone called Joe Danger on here for a while, and it now seems that he’s changed his name to Antics… I think you would class this music as classic ‘wonky pop’, no? Check out here.
A crisp sound coming from this London based act. Sexy pop. Check out here.
