When I get an e-mail from Louisville, Kentucky band The Pass, I know there’s always going to be something good inside.  The electro-pop foursome pass-ed along their latest single, “Take You Out”, off an EP called High Road (out Dec 9th. via SonaBlast! Records).  I think these guys deserve a little more attention, as I would have expected they’d be massive by now!  Well, the synch world has noticed their craft, as apparently they’ve licensed their music over 40 times to tv shows and films.

Head over to their soundcloud page to get a little more familiar.

Normally in these “Currently Listening To” posts, I’m introducing you to an artist that I very recently just became aware of.  But in the case of Daniel Wilson, I’ve actually known his music for a while, I can’t believe I still haven’t got a post up on the site about him just yet.  I guess it fell through the cracks, but I’m glad I’ve circled back to his music today.

Daniel Wilson is a 23 year old singer songwriter from Detroit who’s just put up his Boy Who Cried Thunder EP online, featuring some incredible songs.  Last month, his stunner “If You Went Away” moved me enough to throw it into my best of November mix, today I’m loving the EP opener “Proofread” (check out below).  Really, the EP is worth a test drive, ranging from “driving electro pop to upbeat piano-driven soul to atmospheric, reflective minimalism, highlighted by his distinctly pristine, soulful vocals”.

The other day when I posted the brand new song “Sweat” from LA/Australian artist RY X, I told you about the b-side “Love Like This”, yet never even took a listen…… Silly me.  Little did I know I’d really prefer the latter, evoking memories from those haunting from Bon Iver‘s “Re: Stacks”.

This band has had an incredible year!  They’ve been touring non-stop to support their highly received self-titled debut album, which no doubt will start popping up on some of those “best of” year end lists in the coming weeks.  I’ve always (no pun) noticed how fast their Toronto shows become sold out, like their upcoming date at the Opera House on the 20th.  Did you forget to get tickets?
