Track of the Week 24/07/16: Wildhart – Shake Off

Wildhart hail from Sweden. They combine almost jazzy elements with shimmering synths and soundscapes with gentle vocals. Shake Off is ambient-induced chill out music, while still staying in the realm of electro pop. It’s one of those albums that lets you drift off into daydreams when it gets dark so early outside.

If singles like this one and Fantasy are anything to go by, Wildhart might be about to make a name for themselves. With their debut album coming out November 11th, I’m sure there’s a lot more to come.

Track of the Week 01/08/16

Yes, holy shit it’s August. Yes, I know this year has gone by crazy fast. No, I’m no less terrified of the future and growing old than anyone else. But you know what, let’s just listen to some music, shall we?

Hampshire wunderkinder Blaenavon have been on the scene since 2013. With their more than convincingly weird twitter account and a reputation for some of the best live shows you can see in dingy pubs as well as bigger venues they now have an album coming up. And for the people who are just as excited about that as me, they’ve brought out another single I’ll have on repeat for at least two weeks.

A bit of The Smiths, a bit of the Cure, a lot of bittersweet happiness and melancholy on summer evenings and a “let’s pray for death” chant to match it all. It’s Let’s Pray.

 

Track of the Week 30/05/2016

When it keeps raining and raining and raining and it feels more like late March than almost June, we could all use some music that takes us to a faraway planet where the sun keeps shining.

Here’s Surf Philosophie’s latest track Coconut Parfum that you should definitely check out for 8 minutes of escapism and psychedelic goodness.
