Mareike Muller Contributor

By Mareike Muller in New Music on Friday 24 August 2012

It’s no secret that the Swedes are very talented and adventurous when it comes to music and fashion. So no wonder why the genuinely talented Swedish duo’s album is called Instinct. Because that’s basically all you need to have to understand why they have been nominated for the BBC Sound of 2012. So if you […]

New music by Charlie XCX

Connie Lim Reader Find

By Connie Lim in New Music on Tuesday 21 August 2012

My new favorite musical act is Charli XCX. She comes from the UK, so she has this East London vibe, embodying the hipster feel mixed with a bit of 80s. Her album, Nuclear Seasons, is a great blend of vocals and beats that reflects Madonna and The Knife.

New music by Mount Eerie

Blane Fonda Reader Find

By Blane Fonda in New Music on Wednesday 11 July 2012

I’m always drawn to music that manages to make heavy use of sustained chords and unresolved melodies without sounding, well, unsatisfying. It’s not an easy thing to accomplish, but Mount Eerie appears to have a gift for it. The songs tend to be slower and more depressing than stuff I gravitate to, but the feeling […]

Third Reich and Roll by The Residents

Will Sergeant from Echo and The Bunnyman Reader Find

By Will Sergeant from Echo and The Bunnyman in New Music on Wednesday 6 June 2012

The Residents are one of my favourite bands. I first heard them in 1977 on the late, great John Peel’s BBC radio show in England. I love the darkness of this video. I know it’s odd but, sonderbar ist gut, ja? Possibly the best video ever made.

March Into The Sun is Foxx on Fire’s new summertime single. We recorded the track in post industrial Sheffield with Colin Elliot; Richard Hawley’s long-time producer and collaborator. The music video was filmed in the misty and mystical hills of West Cork, Ireland. The shooting was epic but fun. It was like playing transcendental hide […]

Zolton Editor

By Zolton in New Music on Thursday 15 September 2011

We’re digging the new Laura Marling album, A Creature I Don’t Know, which was released on Monday on Virgin Records/Ribbon Music, and was produced by the wonderful Ethan Johns. This track in particular from the Mercury nominated artist is a standout: lush, majestic, captivating. A bit like Laura herself. Aw, shucks. [Watch the video to Laura Marling’s Sophia now]

Brilliant music video for How I Know by Toro Y Moi

Troy Mattison Hicks Reader Find

By Troy Mattison Hicks in New Music on Thursday 11 August 2011

This is a fun new video by Toro Y Moi. Like scenes cut from that 1990s movie, The Frighteners, it’s a perfect goof-off, with colors from outerspace and funky animation on top of a great end of Summer song. How I Know is taken from the album Underneath the Pine.
