Lily & Madeline – Spirited Away
The is a spacious beauty about Lily & Madeline’s music that is infectious. I have a feeling their gentle folk melodies are going to be a big deal in 2014. This is probably my favourite from the debut album.
Blood Orange – Clipped On
The new Blood Orange album is reassuringly familiar, Dev has a trademark sound and his album is very much like variations on the theme. This track however caught me by surprise and I think the less said the better (don’t wanna ruin the surprise). Click play and enjoy. Could only find a Spotify link unfortunately.
Bombay Bicycle Club – Carry Me
This was another track to take me by surprise last week because it is not like anything I have heard from Bombay Bicycle Club before. It has a really strong electro vibe; much more Phantogram than classic BBC. It has grown and grown and grown on me over the last few days and I can now say I am big fan. At times this is a sonic punch to the face, love it!
Bright Light Bright Light – Movement In The Dark
Bright Light Bright Light (so good he named himself twice) released a new EP recently and while he aces the pop records for me it is on the slower ones where he really shines. Like Your Love Is A Tease and Debris before it, this one is a subtle, affecting little gem of a record.
