Foals-‘Inhaler’

 

While writing this post, I just realized “Shit, it’s been months since I posted something”. I really just haven’t had the time, but I feel compelled to write about the new Foals single ‘Inhaler’. Loud, boisterous, expansive and addictive are the first four words that came into my head. Yannis and co are my boys and I fucking loved ‘Total Life Forever’ so much, but this. This hints at something even bigger and better. Their third record ‘Holy Fire’ is out in February and it is definitely one of my most anticipated albums ever. They’ve knocked it out’ve the park with this track though. I hope this wasn’t too much mumbojumbo for you, I’m just really excited!

AlunaGeorge-‘Your Drums, Your Love’

 

 

Wow. This is absolutely magic. AlunaGeorge have only come to my attention recently, but this track and video has really got my attention. ‘Your drums, Your Love’  delves into pop, R’N’B, soul and electronic music. The video is killer too. Check it out.

Album: Grizzly Bear-‘Shields’

 

I have to say that the new Grizzly Bear record is my favourite of the year so far. It has everything you would want from the lads, with sweeping guitar riffs and mysterious lyrics. my two personal favourites on the album are ‘Yet Again’ and ‘Gun Shy’. it’s a brilliant album which lives up to their three previous efforts and surpasses them in my opinion.

G.O.O.D. Music Album Preview

Here’s the first preview of the Kanye West led G.O.O.D. Music album, ‘Cruel Summer’. Its disappointing that there is no Frank Ocean, but I digress. The stuff I’ve heard from this already is top rate.

New MMOTHS-‘Over You’

 

MMOTHS has been pretty quiet in the last little bit, but I’m glad to say Jack’s back with some new music. This track is a bit more uptempo and has a club vibe. It really is as breathtaking as all his music is though. I can’t stress how good this is. This was done for an Annie Mac mixtape and its awesome.

New: Kanye West, Jay-Z & Big Sean-‘Clique’

 

 

I’m pretty sure Kanye has never made a bad beat. It’s amazing how he can create such layers and an attractive beat to all his stuff. The lyrics have the usual humour. “Ate breakfast at Gucci/ My girl a superstar all from a home movie” raps Yeezy. Loved that. Jay and Sean are understated here, but its still a beast of a tune.

New: Atoms For Peace-‘Default’

 

 

I’ve not posted for quite a while on this, but fear not. I’m back! That’s for my three or four loyal readers, I know you’ve missed me a lot (probably not but it makes me feel better). Well I’m back to write to you about how much I love this new track from Thom Yorke and Flea’s band Atoms For Peace‘Default’ is so mysterious and sparse, very much in the vain of Thom’s solo record ‘The Eraser’. This tune is SICK. Love it. Thom’s a genius. Enough said.

Foals-‘What Remains’

 

Two years on and I still play this album so much. This is possibly my favourite track from it.

The xx-‘Chained’

 

Now this I really like. I wasn’t sure about the first new xx track, but I love the second one released ‘Chained’. It feels like a real progression. Its a similar sound that we’re familiar with, but it is more refined and tight. The vocals are smooth. But of course its Jamie xx’s beats always do it for me. What an incredible talent this guy is.
