I’m not going to lie. I’m a huge Coldplay fan, despite the fact that they haven’t produced anything half decent since 2005’s X&Y, minus a couple of gems here and there in singles form.
Unlike a lot of writers, I’m not going to say they sold out, or that Chris Martin became too full of himself, or that the band just got so big they forgot where they came from and that glorious warm sound of their “Shiver” era. Rather, they just evolved into a musical group I could no longer enjoy.
In any case, this latest offering lives up to its name, and shows promise for their upcoming album Ghost Stories, slated to be released on May 19th.
Listen to “Magic.”
The latest offering by American singer-songwriter-producer Ernest Greene, is a lush follow-up from his debut, Within and Without. Better known as Washed Out, this musician is hot on the rise with Paracosm (Sub Pop), which is one of the best chillwave records I have devoured of late. Like his dreamy, fantastically smooth music relates, a paracosm is an imaginary world full of humans, animals, and unknown worlds of human emotion.
Enjoy “It All Feels Right,” a deliciously dreamy track!
Step aside Chromeo, Daft Punk and Cut Copy! Please make room for Miami Horror.
I just stumbled across this tasty, funky collective from Melbourne, Australia, and they’ve been in my head all day.
The quartet have been together producing their bespoke indietronica since 2007. They released their debut Illumination in 2010, which included a track in collaboration with Kimbra called “I Look To You,” which has tallied up nearly 5-million views to date.
The real gem I’m going to share today, however, is one of their more recent tunes called “Colours in the Sky.” It’s truly gorgeous, and I hope you enjoy 🙂
The first thing I saw when I woke up this morning was that sister trio HAIM have covered Miley’s latest offering, “Wrecking Ball,” which has become more iconic than I would have ever imagined.
The LA sibling indie rock outfit delivered a raw performance on BBC’s Live Lounge, an equally emotional version of the tune sans the surprising hammer licking and overly literal wrecking ball swinging on set. They were also fully clothed.
Please watch this, it’s really something special.
