Tobias Jesso, Jr. – True Love

Posted & filed under New Music, Pop, Recommended.

Last year, Tobias Jesso Jr. shared one of the most beautiful songs of the year, with his touching demo Just A Dream. Not to sound trite, the song was just special and possible the nicest that I’ve ever posted on this site.

This week, Tobias Jesso, Jr. decided to release another demo, entitled True Love, and it’s just as lovely. Once again, Jesso performs solo on piano with his own Paul McCartney-esque vocals to deliver some heartwarming and sentimental lyrics. It’s a stirring tribute to the meaning of true love.

As Tobias Jesso, Jr. continues to shun the spotlight, it’s easy to see why a lot of people may not have heard of him yet. Take a listen to True Love down below, and find out why I regard this musician to be the most underrated songwriter around.

Iceage – The Lord’s Favorite

Posted & filed under New Music, Punk, Recommended.

Whilst still in the middle of a heavy tour in support of their excellent 2013 album, You’re Nothing, Danish punk band Iceage have released a video for their brand new track, The Lord’s Favorite.

Where Iceage’s sophomore album, is the sound of a band pushing their singular mix of punk, Goth, hardcore, and post-punk to even further extremes, The Lord’s Favorite is a slightly different affair. The Copenhagen four-piece are clearly experimenting with new sounds, and this track has elements of rockabilly, country and a Libertines-esque swagger.

Watch the Cali Thornhill DeWitt-directed video below.

Jessie Ware – Share It All

Jessie Ware has shared another stunning track from her forthcoming sophomore record, Tough Love. Share It All is the second taste of the album, following the release of its beautiful title track, and it’s another tender offering of Jessie Ware’s soulful R&B. The song was co-written with The xx‘s Romy Madley-Croft and produced by Julio Bashmore.

Tough Love will be released later this year via Island/Cherrytree Records.
