Mirah - Goat Shepherd
gritty, with an air of old world mystique, and so very, very catchy.
Mat Hunsley - Au Contraire
Au contraire to be alone
Yet integral to the form
Sit quietly and wait upon the change
FRAME - Run Around
I didn’t even realize I was missing this until I heard it. in fact, you’ll be forgiven if you thought this was a forgotten track from the early 2000’s. “Run Around” oozes nostalgia with its lovely, reverbed vocals, effortless guitar choruses and unabashed heart-on-sleeve lyrics. the result is warm, charming and so darn infectious.
also, check out FRAME’s other rock-and-roll tour de force “Polarizer” below:
Tourist - Patterns (feat. Lianne La Havas)
the superb Tourist has teamed up with Lianne La Havas and her buttery vocals for this frenetic banger.
Young Magic - Holographic
get sucked into this enthralling piece of dream pop for a chilled start to the long weekend.
Daughter x Tate Britain
Daughter give a haunting performance of “Smother” at the Tate Britain, featuring pieces from the Ruin Lust exhibition, which revolves around the themes of decay and degradation.
In Elena Tonra’s words, “We felt that the song shares this idea of decay. Whether it is an abandoned man-made structure or a human body, everything will eventually be accepted back into the earth, however cold and brutal it once was.”
Lykke Li - Gunshot
Daughter - Amsterdam (Live at Air Studios)
Monument is special to this album and to me. Its about space in time and defining oneself. Svein and Torbjorn and I were in a zone when we made it, it was like a dream. Like a meditation…
Listen to a snippet of a new track from Robyn and Röyksopp’s forthcoming collaborative mini-album Do It Again.
Daughter - Youth (Live at Air Studios)
Daughter - Coachella 2014 Set
excellent and on-point as always. sidenote: it’s cute that the band always seems so awed and overwhelmed that they’re getting all this attention and adoration (whether at Coachella or Laneway). lap it up guys, you deserve every moment of it.
Charli XCX - Boom Clap
