I can’t imagine a better Vampire anthem than this song. Check out Say Hi‘s latest single “Creatures Of The Night”, off his upcoming release of “Bleeders Digest” on Sept. 18th. For fans of Weezer, Grouplove.
Something about the vibe of this song just seems to fit some nicely with the beginning of summer. “Freazy” by London’s Wolf Alice, from the Mike Crossey produced album “My Love is Cool”. An album that’s “equal parts gigantic, screeching guitars and wistful, wilting beauty”, do yourself a favour and add this highly anticipated album to your summer rotation.
“It’s Not Over” by ON AN ON, from their forthcoming sophomore album And The Wave Has Two Sides, out July 24th via Roll Call Records. The Carlos Lopez Estrada directed video was shot entirely on an iPhone 6, and features two lovers as they chase each other alongside a speeding train; crashing through buildings, jumping over cows and riding along on horses and motorcycles and even jet-packs to keep up.
Friday already? Here’s a few great songs from the Hype Machine Top 50 (including new tunes from Powers, Foals and Ratatat).
LA-based electro-pop duo Powers (Mike Del Rio and Crista Ru) have an infectious new tune “Loved By You” part of a double AA single “Beat Of My Drum“.
Foals have released their new track “What Went Down”, off their upcoming album of the same name.
New York duo Ratatat released an animated, hand-drawn new video this week for single “Abrasive”, from their forthcoming fifth album “Magnifique”.
Finally, what is a weekend without “Saturday Night”. I can’t believe I haven’t featured this tune yet on the blog, here’s Yukon Blonde with “Saturday Night”.
This song hasn’t left my head all week.
Take a listen to “A Long Time Ago” from acclaimed songwriter Kalle Mattson, off his Avalanche EP (set for release August 21st via HOME Music Co). “I wrote A Long Time Ago really quickly the night before a session and I think it really encapsulates a lot of the themes on this new EP; anxiety, nostalgia, the past, the future,” Mattson says of the new track. “The production is probably one of the biggest departures in one of my songs ever. I had this delayed hip hop beat in my head the entire time in the studio and I sort of built the song around that, acoustic guitars and a ton of different synths, which is really a first for me. And yes, if you were wondering, that is me singing.”
Avalanche was produced by Colin Munroe (Sky Ferreira, Kendrick Lamar), mixed by Alex Aldi (Passion Pit) and engineered by Marcus Paquin (The National, Local Natives). The EP was written over the course of March 2015 and picks up where Mattson’s previous full length, Someday, The Moon Will Be Gold, left off.
