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”.

“Unbound” by San Francisco duo Brodie Jenkins and Johnny Hwin (aka Cathedrals).  The video was a collaboration between the band, Maria Kochetkova (the principal ballerina in the San Francisco ballet) and The Sugar Cubes light sculpture, while brought to life by director Sam Pressman and cinematographer Isaac Bauman (John Legend, Sam Smith, Drake, The Presets and Blood Orange).  The song comes from the self-title EP released on Neon Gold Records earlier this month.

I’ve got another contest to announce today, a chance to win tickets to see Bombay Bicycle Club in Toronto at The Opera House, Oct. 16th.  After a successful and extensive sold out headlining tour throughout North America, including a stop at Toronto’s Danforth Music Hall this past spring, Bombay Bicycle Club are back on the road with an upcoming stop in TO next month.  They’re touring to support their album “So Long, See You Tomorrow“,  an album described as “effortlessly diversifying and innovating at an astonishing rate with ethereal loops, offbeat rhythms, shimmering keys, Dutch techno blips, soaring strings and even Bollywood movie samples“.

Saying that I’m obsessed with ODESZA‘s new record, ‘In Return,’ would be an understatement.  The whole album has been on constant repeat, but lead single “Say My Name (feat. Zyra)” (and its collection of remixes) has me swooning.

The official music video was released a few weeks ago, directed by Ian Pons Jewell and starring Stephanie Hunt as a commercial actress caught between reality and imagination.  “Say My Name (feat. Zyra)” is one of my favourite tunes this fall, without a doubt.
