Guillotine

Yadi

Headphones really do wonders for the musical experience. I have been hearing a lot of London singer Hannah Yadi and her demo Guillotine, but I never really thought much of the song. But then this morning with my headphones on and coffee in hand, I came across her Demo once again and decided to give it a listen. Turns out I need to listen on my headphones more often rather than these mediocre computer speakers. The raw emotion of Yadi’s vocals are quite apparent in this track, with similarities to Marina and the Diamonds. It’s a cheery pop anthem, that I’m sure many of you will enjoy.

I’m going to have to change my underwear. There is a small chance I just found my favourite album of 2010. Yes, that’s saying a lot… but I don’t really care. I had first heard a Ceo (Eric Berglund of Tough Alliance) track back at the end of May, and paid little attention to it as I do most new songs I hear. But today I decided I’d check out the album after hearing a lot about them. It’s a powerful pure pop prowess (now that’s an alliteration!) behind this , and its fantastic. It’s a little bit chillwave with a mix of Passion Pit and a hell of a lot of Delorean. It’s the beach after 6 beers and a joint with the urge to dance however you want. It’s not for everyone, but it does me right.

Or you could just call it post-chillwave.

Picasso Trip

I’m trying something new out. I have tons of music that I want to share, but writing a post for every single song is a little bit daunting. SO, weekly, or just whenever the fuck I feel like it I will be posting songs that have flown threw my ears that I feel you will enjoy. That’s a lie, I don’t feel like you’ll enjoy anything. I just like it… so obviously it’s good.

Lately I’ve been diving head first into music and sitting on my floor, doing art and listening to music. What could be better? Anyway, I’ve been digging through itunes on these late nights and discovering music I haven’t listened to, and listening to tracks that first got me into disco and electro music. And of course I come across this track, which was my summer anthem and that I played pretty much everyday… I forgot how great it is!

The Paradise – In Love With You

Back in the day, I never really looked into who artists were and where they came. So since now thats all I really ever want to do, while listening to this track I pulled out all the stops to find out who these boys were. But could I find anything? No, of course not. It seems like this was the only track released by ‘The Paradise’. And since I can’t figure out where they are from our what label they are on, you should probably just enjoy the track as best you can, because who knows if anything else will come out. I think this is from 2003..

Kelis Flesh Tone

I may have just recently mentioned Kelis in a previous post, but she deserves a second post… devoted just to her. There has been quite a bit of debate in the blogosphere lately in regards to whether or not Kelis’ new sound is a step forward or a step backward in her career. Obviously, I think she’s making the right move with the new electro/dance approach to her music. I personally love it when an artist completely reinvents themselves, I believe that art is ever changing and growing, why be a one trick pony and stick to the same shit? That being said, Kelis has reinvented herself quite succesfully in my mind, in all honesty who would have thought that the girl that sang ‘Bossy’ and ‘Milkshake’ would create club-worthy tracks in the same category as Robyn or even Basement Jaxx?

All that being said, a couple more tracks from Kelis’ upcoming album ‘Flesh Tone’ have been leaked. ‘Acapella’ is still my favourite, but following close behind we have ‘4th of July’ and after a few listens ’22nd Century’ is really growing on me, albeit a bit slow to start.

I just died. Yup. Dead.

Dom sun bronzed greek gods

Neon Gold said it best …

It basically sounds like Fear of Tigers producing that first Passion Pit EP, which as you can imagine is pretty much the best thing ever.

They are talking about synth-pop newcomers Dom. Don’t ask me anything about them, cause I’ve got nothing to tell you, I can’t really get a hold of any information on them. The lead track off their upcoming EP Sun Bronzed Greek Gods is killer, beyond killer really. I don’t want to talk about it anymore, It’s just fantastic. Stop reading and start listening.

The Return

Posted in Electro, Electro-pop, Indie with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , on April 8, 2010 by Seth Michael

It’s been awhile since any updates, but it’s time to come out of the shadows and get the ball rolling. So we’re going to have another jammed packed post full of fantastic tunes I’ve had hiding for awhile now. I’m hoping that some of these songs will be on the soundtrack to your summer, as I know they will be to mine.

Wave Machine

First up, Wave Machines’ Keep The Lights On. Reminiscent of the Scissor Sisters, we have a slow paced, yet energetic pop track. I’m pretty sure this tune would be fantastic for a night on the beach, a joint, a bottle of wine, and good friends. Now tell me you can’t picture that!? I’ve listened to this song for the past week every morning, it starts my day off fantastic. Check out their website for a free download of the track.

Galapaghost is an artist that I’ve been hiding from you for far too long. Casey Chandler sent me a few of his demos after reading my post on his friends Year of the Tiger. I’m not one for acoustic, mellow tracks as of late, but he’s got something going on. He definitely has got a Neil Young feel going on, which of course I love. Galapaghost has one track on his latest EP that totally throws me for a loop. It’s called Neptune, and its fucking rad. Adding some synth and drum beats to the song he’s created something more than just the usual acoustic tracks. It’s a direction I’m hoping he takes seriously, it adds a lot more depth to the music, to create a much fuller sounds. It’s also an entirely different genre, so the questions is really, which will he chose? Whichever root he chooses there’s some greatness to come.


Night Waves

Next up we have Night Waves with their track Sweet Carrie, which basically encompass the reason that I love electro and dreamwave music. Night Waves is the creation of Kyle Peterson and Josh Legg who also run the fantastic Binary Blog. I already know that this track is going to be #1 on almost all my summer mixes. Possibly #4 because I believe thats the best song on a lot of albums. Thats all you really need to know.

Yes, that’s Kelis. KELIS. I never thought I would be writing about her, but her single for upcoming album is a step in the right direction for her music and I feel like it needed to be shared. This is definitely a club track, and it probably needs a few listens to really get into it, but lets keep in mind this is the girl who sang “My milkshake brings all the boys to the yard”. Not only does Kelis’ voice sound stellar but the Acapella has some very catchy rhythm and beats. Also, the video is sexy. Don’t judge just listen.
