It’s amazing how in one moment, I’m convinced I’m stuck in a slow patch for new music, where I’m absolutely struggling to find something great to recommend.  Then like the flip of a switch, its the opposite.  I’ve now lined up some great new songs/videos for the next few days, starting with UK band PAUMA.   “Sink or Swim” is their debut single and one helluva great starting point.

Take a listen.

Willa – “Stay The Night”

Last week I had the pleasure of checking out the Vancouver Film Festival edition of Festival Music House, with performances by local acts (and some of my favourites) Damn Fools, Willa, Hannah Georgas and Bear Mountain.  I was particularly excited to see Willa after the release of her debut single “Stay The Night” earlier that week, a catchy dark electro-pop tune produced by Mother Mother‘s own Ryan Guldemond.

The song has been on repeat ever since, and after hearing her play live, I can’t wait to hear the rest of the tunes recorded.  Definitely one to watch!

There’s really no ambiguity in “Getting It On” by Orlando outfit SALES: rediscovering a lost intimacy can be scintillating.  The track crafts a charming and simple, yet mature lo-fi pop melody, perfect for that mixtape in any season.  It comes across as a feeling that needed to be put to song, knowing that the haste of laying it down carried more punch than any polish could.

“Getting It On” leaves nothing to the imagination, but when something so frank is so desirable, why bother imagining?  The track comes from their now-available self-titled EP.

I’ve been a little absent in the past few days, as I’ve been in groomsman mode, getting last minute details all ironed out for my older brother’s wedding tomorrow.  I think we’ve covered everything now, all we gotta do is show up looking nice, say a few words then party the night away.  Once things get back to normal, you’ll see me posting a lot more on the blog.  Until then, here’s a new band to get on board with.  Flyte are a London four-piece that have supporting Bombay Bicycle Club on tour and playing Reading and Leeds festivals on their list of accomplishments so far this year.

Check out “Light Me Up”.
