Matt & Kim – I Said

A distinct lack of employment coupled with the death of any remaining dreams and ambitions has resulted in a significant post reduction of late, but thankfully for both my productivity and the world of electro-pop, Matt & Kim have released their new album like a beautiful dove into a somewhat cloudy sky. Much like previous […]

Matt & Kim – Let’s Go

A Brooklyn-based duo with a Midas touch, Matt & Kim continue their uninterrupted hot streak with the first track from their forthcoming album ‘Lightning’, entitled ‘Let’s Go’. A surprisingly relaxed track from the drum enthused electro-pop tag-team, ‘Let’s Go’ is built on a foundation of gentle chants and comparatively soft drum beats. The track is […]

Seth Sentry – Float Away

After a couple of months hiatus due to exams and hand-in’s, I rise like the proverbial phoenix with news of an absolute steamer from one of my favourite artists. Seth Sentry is the Tarantino of Australian hip-hop – not the most prolific, but what he releases into the world is poetic, considered and elegant. Sentry’s […]

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 […]

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 […]

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 […]
