Hit of the week: Kakkmaddafakka ‘Neighbourhood’

Just over a year after their third album Kakkmaddafakka, the norwegian bunch returned in with “Neighbourhood”.  A song which follows the steps of their last album release barely one year ago. Now, they have just released their fourth album “Hus”. Tonight in concert at Apolo.


Hit of the week: Algiers ‘The Underside of Power’

Soulful experimental rock outfit Algiers have released their sophomore album, The Underside of Power. The follow-up to the multinational band’s 2015 self-titled debut is out June 23rd via Matador Records. Today they will play in concert in sala Razzmatazz. The Underside of Power is a rallying cry against those oppressive forces, as clearly demonstrated on the album’s title track.

Hit of the week: Rhye ‘Taste’

After keeping a low profile for some months, Rhye returned this summer with a stellar performance at Fuji Rock Festival and a pair of new songs — their first in four years —“Please” and “Summer Days”. The R&B outfit’s momentum continues well into the autumn season, as a third track has been revealed today. Dubbed “Taste”, the track fuses funky bass with the feathery sweet nothings of singer Milosh.

Hit of the week: Porches ‘Find Me’

Porches, the band of Aaron Maine, has announced his third full-length album, The House, which comes on the heels of 2016’s Pool and Water EP. He also also debuted a new song and video for “Find Me,” a jaunty, mid-tempo number that contrasts the measured restraint of his recent song, “Country.” The House drops on January 19 from Domino.


Hit of the week: !!! “The Long Walk”

A little while ago, dance-punk band !!! (Chk Chk Chk) released a new song called “The Long Walk.” The new single is actually the last track on a limited edition, hand-stamped white label EP, Shake The Shut Up, that the band plans on selling during their fall tour, which starts tomorrow in Albany, NY. In addition to this surprise limited edition EP, the band most recently released their seventh album,Shake The Shudder, back in May. Today in concert at Sala Apolo.

Hit of the week: Django Django “Tic Tac Toe”

Django Django are set to return this winter with a new album entitled, Marble Skies. Serving as the follow-up to their 2015 sophomore effort, Born Under Saturn, the 10-track effort is due out January 26th via Ribbon Music.

Three of the band’s members — vocalist/guitarist Vincent Neff, bassist Jimmy Dixon, and synth player Tommy Grace — were joined by Metronomy drummer Anna Prior for the initial recording sessions at Tottenham, London’s Urchin Studios. After 10 days of jamming, they sent the material to drummer/producer David Maclean, who chopped and edited the work until it was ready to become a true album. The foursome reconvened all together at their own studio in north London to produce what became Marble Skies.

As a first listen to what this back-to-basics approach produced, the band has shared the record’s lead single,  A frantic art-rock number with echoing notes of psychedelic rockabilly, the track comes with a video directed by Maclean’s brother John, also known for helming Slow West.

Hit of the week: Bipolar Sunshine ‘Major Love’

Riding high from last year’s huge collaboration with DJ Snake, ‘Middle’, Adio Marchant AKA Bipolar Sunshine has released his latest single, ‘Major Love’. After a move from his native Manchester to LA sparked a musical awakening, ‘Major Love’ is the opening chapter to a transformative stage in Bipolar Sunshine’s sound, embodying a more electronic focus, without trading in the blissful haze of his preceding work. It’s also the truest reflection of Marchant’s current self – merging both the dance tinged pop of LA and the mellow guitars of Manchester, and marking a liberating, confident statement as a completely independent artist on his own imprint, Grey Label.
