Hit of the week: Tornado Wallace “Today”

Over a few short years, Tornado Wallace has gone from being a promising nu-disco producer, to one capable of creating brilliant Balearica. Lonely Planet is his debut album, and must rank as his finest work to date. The seven tracks are dreamy, trippy and atmospheric  and draw on a far wider palette of Balearic influences than we’ve heard on previous experiences. Coupled with a new-found desire to include more live instrumentation the result is an album that’s as evocative, dreamy and humid as anything he’s produced to date. “Today” is the banger track of the album in which is featuring as a lead voice Sui Zhen.

Hit of the week: Vuurwerk “Face It”

Featuring Salem Khazali’s (From South London) pitch perfect and flowing vocals, the London-based but originally Belgian-born duo Vuurwerk released another great piece of music today via Run Tell Secrecy. The pair have been at work producing fellow Belgians like Glints in the past and we’re absolutely thrilled to hear they’ll be spearheading the Belgian music scene this year. From Brussels, the duo makes feverish, brilliantly produced electronica. The track “Face It” has a great wintery feel and we really love it.

Whiteout Conditions, the new full-length record from critically acclaimed supergroup The New Pornographers, is due April 7 via Dine Alone Records in Canada.

Hit of the week: Jens Lekman ‘What’s That Perfume That You Wear?’

‘What’s That Perfume That You Wear?’ is the first track off Lekman’s upcoming fourth album Life Will See You Now. The track heavily samples steel drums from Ralph McDonald’s track ‘The Path’, giving ‘Perfume’ an ecstatically upbeat composition. ‘Perfume’ operates at a high tempo, with a sweet bass line recalling disco- a genre that Lekman has revealed to feature heavily on his new album.

Hit of the week: Arcade Fire “I Give You Power”

Arcade Fire have shared a new song featuring Mavis Staples. It’s called “I Give You Power,” and all proceeds from it will go to the American Civil Liberties Union. The band’s last album, Reflektor, arrived in 2013; it is unclear if this song will appear on an upcoming release.

Arcade Fire will perform at a number of festivals this year, including Primavera Sound and Isle of Wight. They’ve been at work on their next album, which Will Butler said could arrive this spring.

Hit of the week: SOHN: ‘Hard Liquor’

London born SOHN has released his first single of 2017 – ‘Hard Liquor’ is a trademark slice of emotive, melodic electronica from his imminent sophomore album, Rennen.

The track is driven by a jarring industrial drum beat and synths that frame Christopher Taylors rich, soulful vocal. Lyrically exploring lost love, as SOHN so often does, brought on by the damaging impact of addiction and reliance, ‘Hard Liquor’ is complemented by a understated but captivating black and white companion video, created by Jovan Todorovic and shot in Belgrade, Serbia.

Hit of the week: Bangkok “Maya Girls”

Bangkok és la capital de Tailanda, però d’ençà fa poc és també el nom d’una banda francesa que acaba de publicar el seu disc de debut “Jungle of Mania”. Aquest trio traspua talent i originalitat per tot arreu. Barthélémy i Melchior passaren la seva infantesa recorrent el món com membres d’un cor i com solistes d’òpera. Antoine és un amant de les sonoritats africanes. El seu so és molt eclèctic i ells reconeixen influències que van des de Pink Floyd als Bee Gees i de Supertramp a l’E.L.O. El seu primer vídeo “Maya Girls” ha estat rodat a Nàpols, una de les poques ciutats que, segons ells, es manté pura.
