Monday, 12 May 2014 07:11
 

Swedish trio DNKL, with two impressive singles under their belt have released the video for the second, 'Battles'. The track still sits in our Top 30 after 10 weeks and at its height hit the number three position a few weeks back. The Tim Winter directed video filmed in Gothenburg is a perfect accompaniment.

MEET NICHOLAS NICHOLAS IN THE PARK
Saturday, 10 May 2014 00:00
 

Chris Masullo has just struck a new single for his Nicholas Nicholas project, the downtempo lo-fi pop gem 'Meet Me In The Park' to follow up his debut record, Comfort Falls from last year. If you are a John Maus fan you'll love what Masullo has done with the pop aethestic here. He's not so much stretched and massaged it, but virtually stepped on it and then painstakingly tried to put it back together. He succeeds but it becomes a very different animal. Check it out below. It's available as a name your price download here. If you are unfamiliar with the work of Nicholas Nicholas and you like what you hear you can download the debut album, also for a NYP arrangement, here.

TOP 30: HOCKEYSMITH NEW SINGLE DEBUTS
Thursday, 08 May 2014 00:00
 

There are four new tracks this week led at 18 by the sultry second single, 'Hesitate' off the forthcoming But Blood EP by English south coast sisters Hockeysmith. Clever use and exchange of vocal melodies and an inexorable sonic lift ensues throughout. The EP drops May 26 - anticipation city! Louisville DIY garage punks White Reaper are set to release their debut EP next month and the urgent and catchy 'Half Bad' debuts at 24. Brighton UK based and Australian fronted Kins released their debut record last year and the new single from it, the no pun intendedly named 'Mockasin's enters at 26. 'Circles' from The Death Of Pop, which we featured Monday, is in as well at 23.

Big moves for Tearjerker, Movement and Colours this week while Craft Spells move to 3 with 'Breaking The Angle Against The Tide'. Check the lot out here and listen to the lot in the Top 30 player.

Monday, 05 May 2014 00:00

In addition to that feature, one of their litany of singles released during that year, 'Tell Me My Name' took out spot 52 in our 2013 Top 100.  Containing elements of psychedelia with an electronic tinge, the atmospheric and measured, 'Circles' can be downloaded for free below. You can check out it's brand new video there too. An extended player is set for release soon while a debut album is in the pipeline for next year. Very much looking forward to all that.

TOP 30: CRAFT SPELLS LEAD THE NEW ENTRIES
Thursday, 24 April 2014 23:07
 

San Franscisco based dream pop outfit Craft Spells lead the three new entries this week with the first single, the extremely easy on the ear, hook laden  'Breaking The Angle Against The Tide' off their forthcoming second record, Nausea. It enters at 19. We featured the new album from English duo Elephant earlier in the week and the latest single from that, 'Elusive Youth' is at 22. Busy Australian expatriate Tom Crandles is back in his Colours guise with a great new single, the rather Tame Impalaesque, especially percussion wise, 'You Can't See Me'. It debuts at 24.

There were big moves this week for three of last week's new entries. The superb electronic pop track, 'Hold On' from Swedish outfit Wilderness smashes the chart with a move from its debut position of 14 last week all the way up to 2. 'Animal Of One' and 'Pickup Lines', from The Fresh & Onlys and SoftSpot respectively both enter the top 10. ALX remains at 1 with 'Beautiful Criminal.

The Craft Spells track is available as a free download below. You'll also find a stream to the Colours track and the new video for our number six track, 'Carmine' by Cloud Boat. Incidentally, the details and release date of Cloud Boat's new album have been announced. It is to be called, Model Of You, and will be released on July 8.

All details for all tracks can be found here while you can play the lot from newest first in the Top 30 player top right.

ELEPHANT TO GO SKY SWIMMING
Tuesday, 22 April 2014 00:00
 

Three years in the making, English duo Elephant are set to release their debut album, Sky Swimming. Unsurprisingly centred around the complexity of relationships, given that Amelia Rivas and Christian Pinchbeck were in one and broke up during the recording, Sky Swimming is at times a dreamy affair based around laconic soul and lounge stylings with a retrospective feel but at others their electronic pop sensibilities truly kick in. If your not familiar with Elephant, we've assembled a collection of tracks appearing on the record that they've released during the past year, including a free download of latest single, 'Elusive Youth' below. Sky Swimming is out next week via Memphis Industries. Grab it on vinyl here.
