Kimbra - Cameo Lover (new single and video!)

We know and love Kimbra as someone who "settles down" as well as provides impeccably-lovely vocals to Miami Horror's I Look to You, but now we look forward (and oh yeah, we really do) to new tunes from the talented New Zealander. So, in light of this new clip, we write, nay "copy-paste", this bit of info: "Cameo Lover is the second single, after Settle Down. Her album is due towards the end of the year and we PROMISE it's going to be available on US iTunes and whatnot when that happens... lotta ppl asking." Bah-BOOM! Now enjoy the semi-Oh Mickey You're So Fine-ish styled video below.

Steed Lord - Don't Hurt Love

We'd previously always sometimes been a little on the fence about Steed Lord. At times, elements of their nu-disco-housier than thou flare shone through whilst other electrobanger qualities suppressed our urge to give them a rad heaping of support. Don't get us wrong, songs like You and It's What You Do 2 Me are great... and frankly, their feature on Crookers' Transilvania was the highlight of the Italian DJ's debut long player. But it's a new upcoming EP that's got us in the grip of the quivers, and oh yeah, it's great.




Cut to the summer of 2011 and we see Steed Lord cooking up some amazing disco house tunes with their upcoming Eddie House EP. The troupe went back to their house roots on this mini album of theirs and released the first track a few months back on their Soundcloud page, so yeah, we're late on this, but geeeebs Louise it's a dandy ditty.


Give your full attentive ears to Don't Hurt Love.


Summa smash!

Jessica 6 (ft Antony) - Prisoner of Love (new!)

Last month, we wrangled in NYC trio, Jessica 6, into the EVR studio on our weekly radio show, Belly of the Beast. (let's beat that fact over the head, as in, AHEM, you guys... it's Thursday, and the show is tonight at 8pm ET, so you should be listening right on ok thank you) Anyway, we dig them, and now they are offering up a new song, a free one if you will, from their forthcoming debut album, See the Light, which is due out June 7.




Prisoner Of Love [which] bridges electro and freestyle, featuring a soaring vocal melody that finds Nomi and guest vocalist Antony weaving their voices around each other to a stunning effect.


Those are some words from the press release.


Here are some from me: "I LIKE THIS A LOT". (and also ps: speaking of prisoners, and love, I was reminded of Colonel Abrams' Trapped... which talks about being in a cage, like a thieving bastard, and sounds nothing like this new song, but I really enjoy in this housey rework, and so you're getting that as well. pps: COFFEE RAMBLES!)

Moullinex and Xinobi - X Marks the Spot

It took them 8 hours from "Hey, let's hit the studio!" to "Track finished". There are no samples. It's Moullinex and Xinobi singing, laughing, whistling, playing bass, guitar, wine bottles and hippie percussions. Basically, doing what they do best... and churning out the new fun cut, X Marks the Spot.




We'd like to suggest you give this one a go.

Mason (ft Roisin Murphy) - Boadicea (new video!)

Boadicea? More like BAD ASS-ia. Terrible pun, but yeah the new video for the Mason and Roisin Murphy tracj is available to view with your eyes now, and while the Dutch duo only appears briefly in the clip, there is some gun play from a pretty lil' lady. Watch it now. (Reminder: Mason's They Are Among Us is out in the UK now, and it is great. Buy it here)

Uffie - Wordy Rappinghood (Tom Tom Club Cover)



Lots of words in this original and new cover. So we'll just say...


Uffie's cover of Tom Tom Club's Wordy Rappinghood was produced by DJ Medhi and was done for this. Ok. There's a clip below too.

Peaches - Turn It On (Franz Ferdinand Cover)

New Peaches.


Good enough to make this gray Monday all that much raddlier.

Monarchy - I Won't Let Go (new video!)

OMG ITS RAINING CUPCAKES! Um, hello, dreams do come true... at least in the new video for Monarchy's most amazing single, I Won't Let Go. If this wasn't already one of our favorite songs of the year, then this clip just solidifed it. So instead of writing more, I'll simply paste the lyrics to the song below the image, because, well... they are super. Watch the vid after that then, yeah?




I watch you from afar
Can't reach your burning star 
Still I will to keep you safe in my sight 
I know we hardly speak 
But your words I can complete 
I have built you up too high to talk you down 

And I won't let go 
I won't let go of you 
There's no limit to my love 
No limit to my love 
I won't let go my love 

Can't step over the line
And you don't give me any sign 
So I will take a deep breath and rise up 
I live unnaturally 
Half with you half with me
All my words lay wasted at your feet 

Can't you see I'm waiting for you to come back to me 
I never left you only you can choose whatyou wanna see 
What can I do I'm still in love with you








mp3: Monarchy - I Won't Let Go (Bag Raiders Remix)
