Slumped Mix Tape One – Free Download

I have finally reached the end of my first month as Slumped commissioner (took a while to settle upon that title) and in celebration I have crammed all the legal downloads featured this month and a few more proverbial cherries tossed upon the imaginary cake of happiness. Hopefully a few of you will take the […]

Passion Pit – Take a Walk

Excitingly today’s track was selected by yesterday’s featured artist Castlecomer and unsurprisingly they have selected an absolutely masterful song from an electropop giant. Passion Pit satisfied millions of fans earlier this year with the announcement of their second studio album ‘Gossamer’, set to be injected into our psyche in July, and this month has seen […]

Castlecomer – Danny’s Den (With Interview)

Like many of the successful folk-rock tracks in recent years ‘Danny’s Den’s’ hefty intro seduces you long before Bede Kennedy’s gravelly vocals make you melt like a Skip on the tongue. Castlecomer’s rousing number builds with stirring guitar riffs and thunderous yet unembellished drum beats, leaving an honest, raw piece that is perfect for the […]

Grouplove – Cruel and Beautiful World

After a few days of excitable summer tunes, a poor weather forecast for the weekend has got me worried that I have yet to provide enough songs for those who wish to lock themselves indoors, sob over memories of the ex and cradle their beloved household pet in a manic and slightly unhinged manner. But […]

Chance Waters – Maybe Tomorrow

With such an illustrious group of artists currently marauding around the Australian hip-hop scene it is no surprise to see some of the genre’s understudies spread their wings and fly into the consciousness of mainstream fans. Chance Waters looks set to be the most recent act to join the likes of 360 and Urthboy in […]

Loreen – Euphoria

In celebration of the world’s finest musical extravaganza – Eurovision, today’s track of the day features the winning tune of this years competition which amazingly, is pretty damn good. Loreen made her initial steps into the music industry via the Swedish equivalent of American Idol back in 2004 and has since dabbled in television and […]

Icona Pop – I love It

After Chiddy Bang’s marvellous ‘Mind Your Manners’ single, a number of you may be wondering who the energetic indie duo were belting out the pop sample that bred life into the addictive track. Icona Pop are a Swedish indie-pop band with a heavy electro influence, Caroline Hjelt and Aino Jawo make up the all-female duet […]

Cris Cab – Gypsys on the Boulevard

So the summer is firmly upon us here in jolly old England, and as we all know that means both self-pitying indie and melancholy rock take a break from playlist duties to be replaced by funky feel good pop and heat stroke inducing reggae tunes. A song that sits in the latter category and is […]

John Butler Trio – Mystery Man

Ahead of Tuesday’s much anticipated UK release of John Butler’s ‘Tin Shed Tales’, the man himself was nice enough to offer some of those less experienced JB fans a seductive little taster in the form of the ‘Mystery Man’ free download. But that pillar of masculinity knows what he’s doing and chances are, you will […]

Imagine Dragons – It’s Time

With a week of journalism exams finally over and the ability to step back into the past acquired, I bring you the 22nd of May’s track of the day, but I promise you it was worth the wait. With all the hype swirling around Imagine Dragons remixes which whomp and chirp throughout, I feel ‘It’s […]
