I’m such a bell-end at times, how do I (feel free to interject and disagree with the bell-end assertion by the way) keep forgetting to mention one of my favourite tracks of the last couple of months? Only just hitting 50k views on youtube I’m gobsmacked that ‘The Giver’ by DUKE DUMONT hasn’t smashed into more mainstream conscious yet. Such a big, big piece of club, love it.
On a somewhat different vibe I’ve always had a soft spot for KATE NASH, both in her mainstream days and her current ones.
Kate’s latest song ‘Fri-end?’ is another Riot Grrl Pop Nash-up (see what I did there? I know, I know) of the finest (and angriest) quality.
‘Shelter Song’ by TEMPLES ozes Sixties vibes, this is a very old skool piece of brand New Music. Dangerous territory to some but just like bands such as Tame Impala they absolutely nail it creating a sound that is authentic and free of cliche, seeking inspiration from the past rather than simply mimicking it.
