And, the playlists are up! Check out what rocked in January, via all your favourite platforms (Rdio, Soundcloud, Spotify and Youtube). This past month started off 2015 in a great way with some killer tunes from EXGF, The Wombats, The Tallest Man On Earth, Young Empires, Passion Pit and many more.
Absolutely drifting away here listening to the magic of Patrick Watson‘s title track from his upcoming release of “Love Songs For Robots” (out May 12th via Secret City). Featuring a dreamscape of swirling synths and ethereal vocals, Watson calls the song “A meditation on the human connection in our mechanical impulses”. I call it a great way to get us excited about his new record.
Watch the album trailer here.
“Somebody New” by Joywave, directed by Keith Schofield. The video finds the band skateboarding around Los Angeles while performing their new song. Speaking about the creative for the video, the band said, “We wanted to look like we were great at some physical activity, so CGI was the only option. For the first time, we had the means to create an alternate universe in which we were actually good at something.”
Best skate video ever.
Finally, finally, finally! Icky Blossoms just released the first track from their forthcoming album, ‘Mask’, and it’s as awesome as you would expect it to be if you heard their first album! I confess I’ve been waiting for this for a while…
But ok, first things first. For those of you who never heard of Icky Blossoms before (you’re missing out!), they’re an electronic trio from Omaha, Nebraska, and they are incredible. Just to give you an idea of how impressed I was with their work, the first gift I ever gave my boyfriend was their special edition vinyl. They are bold, experimental, sometimes freaky, sometimes romantic, often sexy and, most of all, incredibly interesting. You’ll never get bored. So go ahead and listen to “In Folds”, it’s totally worth a few plays on repeat.
P.S. – ‘Mask’ will have a 3D cover, so the physical versions of the album will come with 3D glasses. Quirky!
