Slayed. That's what we are this morning. There is no other solo artist right now who tickles our waiting fancy more than that of mysterioso Londoner, Tyson. Today, we've got his news single and video, and news of who to expect on the remix tip. Massive radness after the image.
After You're Gone sounds eerily similar to most of the singer's small catalogue of cuts, but it's emphatically dramatic on slowed down vocals and tempo alike. HBF likens the sound to Chromeo meeting Seal, but we'll stick with our initial guts and make yet again the case for a Billy-Branigan offspring.
Much ado has been made about Marina and the Diamonds' resurgence to the tips of bloggers, well, fingertips. With teaser track / video for Fear and Loathing, she shortly followed up with "comeback" cut Radioactive, a surprising twist in her song repertoire whcih, we won't lie, has been hot on the repeat game over the past week. Now... whoa. Dev Hynes gets his hand in the mix and on the mic. Literally.
Earlier today, we over on the EVR.com homepage begain streaming Dev's debut disc under the moniker, Blood Orange. You can listen to some beauteous sounds of his at this link.
Or you can gear your ears with his sublime spin on Marina's new Stargate-produced single below.
We love it.
If you've ever thought to yourself, "Man, what I'd really love to do right now... is the hustle. But I'd appreciate some new radly awesome song to do that very disco dance to", then my dear beasts, boys and girls, you are in luck. Drop Out Orchestra, making 'dem bell bottomed-bootys bounce today!
Sydney duo Flight Facilities' brand new single, Foreign Language (ft. Jess), is out now on iTunes through Future Classic. FF's very first solo track, Crave You feat. Giselle took everyone by surprise; 2 Sydney DJ / producers that cut their teeth with cult party remixes, created what became arguably one of the best pop cuts of 2010 and we think it's pretty safe to say that this newb has all the right ingredients for another timeless summer anthem. And it already has a bootleg roller rink video!
Buy it here. Listen to the Drop Out Orchesta remix below and just bask in the rad.
(PS: the single/remix EP comes with new Flight Facilities' song, Feelin' You, and an accompanying Jonny Pow! fix which you can stream here.)
Sometimes, when my brother gets really excited, he expresses that in his tweets and writings, by simply "keysmashing" the letters on his computer or mobile device. Taking cue from him: DHN3O KJ;;cdw23ciDSDa7egbdsdGSDGV, or in human-speak, "Noble beasts, thineself requests your ears to feast upon the self-titled offering from sirs Azari & III, applicably available to stream whenceforth as below." SO RAD.
Last month, the homegirl MNDR dropped onto the raddest radio show in the game, Belly of the Beast (Thursdays 8pm ET), on East Village Radio. She hinted that her single, Cut Me Out, was officially remixed by an NYC radass, and here we present you with the full on facts. It's Kingdom. And it's ah so ah good. Also... news of his new single today makes me swoon like a sweltering beast. Holy!
Kingdom, a [dance] producer renowned for his devotion to R&B, has teamed up with Naomi Allen for his next single. Allen makes up one quarter of Electrik Red, the criminally underrated US girl group whose debut album, 2009′s Dream-governed How to Be a Lady, Vol. 1, represents one of the great modern R&B full-lengths. Her and Kingdom’s collaboration is titled Take Me, and is due for release on Fool’s Gold, this coming Tuesday, July 26. On the B-side, you’ll find If You Buck, a “dreamlike crunk instrumental” built around harps and finger snaps. (via)
So much ear love right now.
POSSO (meaning “I can”) is a fashionable musical collaboration between best friends Marylouise Pels and Vanessa Giovacchini. Together, they bridge design, music and art in an ever-evolving project that takes them all over the world. POSSO works to create an all around sensory experience which brings us to a new mix, a new fix... a rad lil' twist on something we love so dear. Enough with the words... bring on the tune!
Oft more than not, I'll thrown down a little taste of The Coasters' Down in Mexico whenever I spin out and about. Or just in my headphones. See, the track is SUCH a track. But sometimes originals can be, well, just original... and it could be nice to hear something brushed up in beastly fashion. Enter POSSO.
You can grab their deliciously fun and funky mix of the song, and while you're listening and loving this poolside pumper, check out their new fashion line collaboration with Volcom.
Free swag please?
One of the better most bestest EP's you're gonna listen to this year is The 2 Bears' Bear Hug EP, out now on Southern Fried Records. And hey, the new video for the title track it out as of now and she's a rad one. Buy it and peep it and love love love it. I WANNA DO "THE BEAR HUG"!
Right as this video started, I thought to msyelf, "Hmm, I wonder what Robyn's gonna do when that nifty beat drop hits around the :28 mark of Call Your Girlfriend?", and ol' homegirl does not disappoint. Also, she ensures that I will, from here on out, only dance like so all summer long. Really emotional and very personal. It's all very "Billy Elliott meets Napoleon Dynamite", AKA, super rad.
