D.A.F: Liebe Auf Den Ersten Blick

Pallers Reader Find

By Pallers in New Music on Friday 22 July 2011

It took me some time to realize that D.A.F is crazy good. The funkiness of the production just makes the feet move. If you want to learn German, it’s really good to listen to D.A.F because they keep repeating every phrase over and over.

Damon Albarn: The Reigning Queen

Pallers Reader Find

By Pallers in New Music on Friday 22 July 2011

Some voices just need some ageing and some melodies are better not fully structured. Here it sounds like Damon Albarn is very eager to express something: his words are just flowing. I love the sad and comfortably numb feeling the song creates. This also makes me think of the Blur song, Out Of Time.

Bo Ningen: the best Japanese band you’ve never heard

S.C.U.M Reader Find

By S.C.U.M in New Music on Friday 22 July 2011

They all met in London, but are from different parts of Japan. The first time I saw Bo Ningen was in a basement in King’s Cross and I couldn’t believe my eyes and ears; beautiful psychedelic guitar noise that went from intense Boredoms and Branca-like repetition, to deathly quiet bouts of creepy Japanese wailing and […]

Wild music video for Here Comes The Mobster

Contributions Reader Find

By FAB Design in New Music on Thursday 21 July 2011

Here Comes The Mobster is the latest work by Fab design studio for Big Charlie’s new single. It’s a mix of 2D and 3D animations, blended together in a dark, original style: ‘You may like living a peaceful and happy life. But what if a massive blurred black blob invades the city and a business […]

Blok’s Jungle Dog Fang Hell music video

Lamia Larkin Reader Find

By Lamia Larkin in New Music on Thursday 21 July 2011

OC-based hip hop-electronica band BLOK is more like performance art for your ears. They’re not your typical young musical group coming out of SoCal, but honestly I’ve had enough indie folk to last me a lifetime. Made up of Damien Blaise, Jesse Saint John, and Gianna Gianna, these three siblings have a new music video, Jungle Dog Fang Hell.

Late Bloomer: a brilliant folk album by Allie Moss

David Ryan Robinson Reader Find

By David Ryan Robinson in New Music on Wednesday 20 July 2011

I have worked alongside Allie Moss for nearly a year and heard her new album, Late Bloomer, around the end of last year. The album opens with a familiar song, Corner, which was featured on the BT Infinity advert in the UK last year. Her beautiful voice, combined with her gentle acoustic songs, makes it […]

Fan video for New Order’s Ruined In A Day (K-Klass Remix)

Pallers Reader Find

By Pallers in Video on Wednesday 20 July 2011

A friend of mine sent me this clip and it grabbed me because it combines so many great things all at once. It’s not an official video. It’s made by some genius remembering ‘the good old days’. I love the clash between nature and clubs. I mean, look at the strobe sweeping the snowy mountaintop […]

Team Me: Weathervanes and Chemicals

Contributions Reader Find

By Yaper in New Music on Wednesday 20 July 2011

Norwegian band Team Me produces warm songs from a very cold place using a diverse array of instruments such as traditional accordion and violin alongside bass and guitar. I just wish they’d play more often outside of Europe.

Awesome video for the new Ganglians’ single: Jungle

Flux Magazine Reader Find

By Flux Magazine in New Music on Monday 18 July 2011

The video for the new single Jungle sees Ganglians transmogrified into my mind’s eye view of how they sound. They are all bent up and bruised and look a little like they’ve been dipped in a boggy lagoon. Perfect for their gloriously gritty pop and you can see it here in all its gory beauty.

Little Dragon: electronic-soul music from Sweden

Payam Doostzadeh Reader Find

By Payam Doostzadeh in New Music on Saturday 16 July 2011

The singer from Little Dragon, Yukimi Nagano, sounds to me like a Swedish-Japanese version of Erykah Badu. She writes very interesting melodies and her band plays very groovy electronic music. They have a new album called Ritual Union out this month.

Zoe Muth and the Lost High Rollers perform live

Eilen Jewell Reader Find

By Eilen Jewell in New Music on Friday 15 July 2011

I’m really loving the music of up-and-coming Seattle artist Zoe Muth. She has this beautifully pure, effortless voice that is refreshingly affect-free. Her lyrics are heartfelt and real, and her band, the Lost High Rollers, are the perfect accompaniment to her sound. Listening to her is like the taste of comfort food after being away […]

Bitches Brew by Miles Davis

By Antonino Cardillo in New Music on Friday 15 July 2011

Bitches Brew sounds like contemporary architecture should be: a magical contamination of stray fluxes in an irresistible, sexual and penetrating brew.

By Payam Doostzadeh in New Music on Wednesday 13 July 2011

One night back at home in Southern California, I decided to go to a bar called The Crosby to check out the live Bossa Nova jazz band called Sister Rogers. That night I fell madly in love with the whole vibe of Bossa Nova jazz and I highly recommend getting their EP online.
