Zolton Editor

By Zolton in Video on Friday 13 August 2010

At the risk of sounding like a broken (vinyl) record, they just don’t make em’ like they used to. Rhiannon, Britney and co, the superstars (for better or for worse, with a strong lean towards the latter) of today, couldn’t hold a torch to the dancing divas of yesteryear, as this funkadelic clip from New […]

Francis Andrews Reader Find

By Francis Andrews in Video on Friday 16 July 2010

A nice little mash-up between the lovely Lykke Li and the ever-talented Bon Iver. The original is deeply intimate, whereas this rendition takes the song to the great outdoors and injects vibrant percussion, accompanied by the funky moves of Sweden’s finest export since Bjorn Borg’s mullet.

A little infectious lollipop rock anyone? Feel free to embarrass yourself singing along at the stoplight. If the other drivers give you that look, roll down the windows and spread the love.

They’re being super hyped, based on just four demo songs, but it’s easy to see why. With their melodic electronic pop shimmering in all the right places and an uber-hip band image, New York three-piece, Brahms, are set to explode — in a good way — in the latter half of 2010. They’re already well […]

I’m simultaneously left intrigued and blissed-out whenever I listen to the melodic hooks and bitter sweet vocals created by The Lighthouse and The Whaler. This unsigned Cleveland threesome blends classic modern pop with interesting orchestral soundscapes that take you on an imaginary nautical journey beyond the sea.

Cassette Kids

Zolton Editor

By Zolton in New Music on Friday 2 April 2010

We checked in with Sydney-band Cassette Kids, who have been creating quite a buzz of late, and asked them about the highlights of their extensive touring over the past six months: ‘We literally just stepped off a plane from LA. We played at SXSW in Austin over the last week and it has probably been the most awesome experience to date. It’s amazing being able to play shows and go and see shows non-stop over five days’.
