the championed french duo are releasing their highly anticipated album next week and another track has surfaced in the form of a video. “parade” is played over scenes from excursion to the moon, so it’s meant to juice us up for their take on georges méliès’ silent film. i don’t need to sell you on how good the song is. it’s air kids. www.en.aircheology.com
their website states they are “three lovers from monaco, raised in a cave of gold.” two of those three lovers are also in hooded fang. their self-titled debut album is out digitally next month and their lead single is a stunner. this is surely one the slickest and quirkiest songs to come by in a while. it’s got some ariel pink flair, so throw on some glitters and strut your best. check out the song’s video below. www.phedreamour.com
kate bush – 50 words for snow – elder falls at lake tahoe
the ever private and eclectic kate bush graced us with two consecutive new albums last year. the later, 50 words for snow, is her first studio album since 2005. she directed this stark and gorgeous shadow puppet video for an abridged version of “lake tahoe”, whose actual length is a whopping 11 minutes. enjoy!
it’s 1985. the british lads release their sophomore album featuring their best and arguably most famous song. it’s got one of the most recognizable guitar melodies to come out of the 80s. i’ve many a happy and debaucherous memories with this song and lead singers just don’t wear white spandex anymore. just saying.
the pennsylvania crew are back with their seventh album in a couple of weeks. this new track from be the void is easy rock-n-roll with swagger. it’s got plenty of soul for devoted fans and young newbies alike. they’ve proven themselves to be indie classics and thankfully, their greatness just keeps on giving. www.drdogmusic.com
we featured brooklyn’s frankie rose’s first song from her new album, interstellar, at the beginning of the year. another song has surfaced and it sounds like the lady is on a roll. she’s got a knack for modern new wave pop laced with romance. really, there’s nothing not to love. mark the album’s release, february 21st, on your calendars, kids. www.missfrankierose.com
tiny victories – those of us still alive – lost weekend
this brooklyn duo is set to release their debut ep next month and this lead track is weekend worthy fun-ness. it’s got tons of energy and anthemy melodies loaded with synths. in short, the song shines and if you are planning a romp or two over the weekend, turn this sucker up, and skip a doo. www.facebook.com/pages/tiny-victories
these boys are from glasgow and recently joined forces with kevin burleigh, who’s worked with glasvegas (another stellar glasgow band), to lay down this track. the roughness of the lead vocals is spot on for this song and the drama is all time. they definitely have similarities to glasvegas, but that’s certainly not a bad thing in this case. www.facebook.com/holyesque
theesatisfaction – awe naturale – do you have time
the seattle duo are releasing their debut album this march on subpop. the ladies have major attitude and their off-kilter r&b and hip hop flair are seriously cool and a breathe of fresh air. they’ve provided backing vocals for shabazz palaces, so you might have heard their vox before, but this time they are on their own, kicking ass, and taking names. www.theesatisfaction.com
we featured the toronto duo last year when they released their first single last spring and now they are set to release their debut full-length next month on arts & crafts and it sounds like their gothy dark synths will not disappoint. this is their lead single and it’s perfectly moody with the right amount of 80′s gloom. www.myspace.com/trst
matthew dear – headcage – in the middle (i met you there) (feat. johnny pierce)
matthew dear’s new ep dropped last week and a surprise track is his duet with the drums’ johnny pierce. it’s hands down the ep’s standout. it’s rich and layered and the boys’ vocals really do complement each other. set this tune for your morning alarm and you’re guaranteed to have a beautiful day. www.matthewdear.com
it’s 1978. the british androgynous lads release their debut album. it’s a highly overlooked and fantastic piece of work. their new romantic look and glam-rock combo make them one of the sexiest bands ever. not to mention when you google japan and adolescent sex you get all kinds of xxx search results on google. forward thinking on their part?
dirty projectors’ nat baldwin released his new album last summer. this new video for “weights” stars a horse, yes, a real life horse, selling its personal items at a yard sale. the video has a somber tone that suits the song well and really, there isn’t anything more endearing than a talking and strawberry-chopping horse with a gorgeous mane. enjoy!
the band’s 1986 demos have been floating around for a hot minute, but when the new music flow is slow i find myself going back to their uber lo-fi demos and smiling a big one. they were called on a friday back in the day and were bouncy and ever loveable. there’s no better day to enjoy thom channeling his best morrissey than on a lazy sunday. check the rest of the demos on at ease.
this l.a. doll has ventured out on her own. she used to be in a electronic band called electrocute and has written songs for britney spears. let’s all forget that last fact and forgive her because she’s also working with mike snow now, but most importantly this track from her ep is supreme. it’s a little bat for lashes and a whole lot of sexy. www.facebook.com/cocomorier
