Formation have announced debut album “Look at the powerfull people” The LP, which boasts already revealed tracks such as ‘Pleasure’ and ‘Drugs’ in the 10-track mix, is set to land on March 3rd and is set to be packed full of the soulful, powerful and infectious grooves that have already had us swooning for a while now.

Hit of The Week: LIV “Wings of Love”

Lykke Li has formed a new supergroup called LIV, and released the collective’s transformative first song “Wings of Love.” Along with Lykke Li, the band features producer (and Lykke Li’s boyfriend) Jeff Bhasker, Björn Yttling of Peter Bjorn and John, and Miike Snow members Andrew Wyatt and Pontus Winberg. All of the members of the new supergroup are a part of INGRID, a label/collective that they formed in 2012.

LIV’s new track is a journey led by ’60s-era guitar work, as Lykke Li serenely sings about “searching for a silver lining” to love.

Hit of the week: Operators “Control”

Dan Boeckner, guitarist of the edgy band Wolf Parade, changes register and moves into the sphere of eighties electronic pop and synth-pop with Operators, a project that he shares with drummer Sam Brown (Devojka, Divine Fits) with whom he updates the dark sounds of bands such as New Order and Joy Division. After publishing a presentation EP in 2014, the band has released their first LP this year “Blue Wave”, an album that has elements of LCD Soundsystem, Depeche Mode and Future Islands. This next friday night at Primavera Club.

Hit of the week: The Head and the Heart “All We Ever Knew”

After over four years on the road together, The Head and the Heart took a significant hiatus once they wrapped up their final shows in 2014. The band’s members all headed in different directions and threw themselves into new creative projects. That meant when it was time to come together again and record new music, they’d each grown separately in significant ways.

Their growth becomes evident on the new single “All We Ever Knew.” The up-tempo song with a singalong chorus starts off by nodding to the style that made The Head and the Heart so popular, but eventually departs for newer territory. Their third studio album is Signs of Light .

Hit of the week: Bearoid “Out of my mind”

Experimentation and dance, organic textures and synthetic details come hand-in-hand in Bearoid, project that the Valencian, Daniel Belenguer Saborit has created as a vehicle for music research and his quest for independence. Halfway between classical house and new soul, this Barcelona-based producer follows in the footsteps of Chet Faker and conceptualises electronic music to give us dizzy, irresistibly danceable tracks. “Dawn At Home” is his second EP. He has just released a new song, a hit called “Out of my mind” whose sound brings back the disco music of the eigthies.

Hit of the week: Temples “Certainty”

Psychedelic indie rock band Temples have returned with “Certainty,” their first new music since 2014’s Sun Structures. The four-minute track is set to appear on the English outfit’s yet-to-be-titled sophomore LP, out early 2017 on Fat Possum Records. “Certainty” was produced by frontman James Bagshaw and features a whimsical melody, a fuzzy guitar line and heavy synths reminiscent of a 16-bit video game. It’s a track you’d hear pouring out of an arcade somewhere in Alice’s Wonderland.
