Slowly getting back into it here, as a weekend off turned into a 3 day absence from posting on the blog.  Sometimes, its hard to find the motivation to stream a hundred tracks looking for a gem to post.  Yesterday, I just didn’t have it in me.

Today?  Yeah, I’m loving what I’ve found in my e-mail and in the feeds I follow.  Case in point the latest from Brooklyn-based quartet Body Language.  “4 Real” is from the band’s newest EP “Infinite Sunshine” (set for release August 12th) and features summery funk of the 70’s with elements of modern pop and electronic music.  And go.

Magic Hands is Alex Badham of experimental pop band Aleks and the Ramps and lyrical folk songstress Lucy Roleff.   The music video for ‘Limousine’, directed by Alex Badham, is a glamour meets gore ode to contemporary dance and the at times sinister competition of gymnastic sports.  The clip was filmed over two days during winter in a frigid basketball stadium featuring professional dancers Hana Dawson and Jack Traylen.

Included in my “Trending” Playlist last week on Aux was the latest new music from The Rural Alberta Advantage called “Terrified”.  The band will release their highly-anticipated third album, Mended With Gold, on September 30th.  The twelve-track album was recorded at Toronto’s Candle Recording with the band’s long-time live engineer Matt Lederman (Hayden, !!!, Besnard Lakes) alongside co-producer Leon Taheny (Owen Pallett, Austra, F*cked Up).

Listen to Mended With Gold‘s “Terrified” below.

Every time I think I’m ready to declare a “song of the summer”, another great tune is released and I’m back at square one.  Great for my (and your!) ears, not so great for my compulsive need to create lists.

This latest warm weather anthem comes from British indie musician Saint Raymond (aka Callum Burrows), who at but 19 years old has secured the opening slot on Ed Sheeran’s European tour, performed sets at Reading and Leeds festivals as well as T in the Park, and is preparing the release of his debut full length album.

His latest single, “I Want You,” is an insanely catchy indie-pop song that fits perfectly playlisted against a backyard BBQ with friends, relaxing by the pool, or a road trip with the wind blowing in your hair; that is, everything great about summer.
