Melbourne indie-pop outfit ALPINE have dropped an absolute diamond of a track called ‘Gasoline’ that’s really perking me up on an otherwise miserable day (my turtle died). This is pop at its finest. Catchy, infectious and fun!
Their debut album ‘A Is For Alpine’ is out now on iTunes.
London-based trio Vondelpark have released a newer version of ‘California Analog Dream’ and it’s an absolute treat. These guys really grabbed my attention with their previous single ‘Dracula‘ but this is just bliss. ‘California Analog Dream’ is a really beautifully arranged track with some really smooth vocals, quality drumming and a generally lovely rhythm throughout.
Their debut LP ‘Seabed’ is out April 1.
Its been confirmed that The Strokes have announced Comedown Machine as the title of their fifth studio LP, and it’s due March 26. Have a listen to their recent single ‘One Way Trigger’ below. Cannot wait for this one!
Dean Blunt has sampled Pink Floyd on his new track ‘Papi’, taken from his forthcoming LP The Redeemer, out May 1 on Hippos in Tanks / World Music. If you were a fan of last years beautiful release, The Narcissist, then I’m sure you’ll dig this one.
Here’s the new single from Autre Ne Veut, taken from his forthcoming debut LP Anxiety which drops February 26 on Software/Mexican Summer. ‘Play By Play’ is a ridiculously smooth Electro/R&B track that would make even the likes of heavyweights Prince and Usher lose their shit. Check out it’s very retro video below. I’m hooked.

Sydney-based duo Jagwar Ma, comprised of Jono Ma and Gabriel Winterfield, have a fantastic new single out called ‘The Throw’. The single, which is out February 25th, is taken from a forthcoming LP due later this year. ‘The Throw’ is an absolutely sublime throwback to Manchester/Factory-era based acid rock. It’s just a really fun track that touches on a variety of musical styles. Imagine if Tame Impala, The Happy Mondays, The Stone Roses and Primal Scream all got locked in a studio, took a bunch of acid and released a track? Well, it would more than likely sound like this, but probably not as good. Tune of the week.
Having arriving on the pop scene in style with the storming ‘No Strings’, Chlöe Howl is back with a brand new track called ‘Rumours’. This 17 year old has some set of lungs for such a young age and her ear for an infectious pop chorus is really exciting. Expect to hear a lot more from Chlöe Howl this year!
Chillwave maestro Ernest Greene, aka Washed Out, is back with a brand new track entitled ‘The Sound Of Creation’. This gorgeous three-minute long instrumental was named after electronic company Philips’ recent campaign, Sound of Creation. Really digging Greene’s use of atmospheric soundscapes on this track before it really hits the ground running on the 1:46 minute mark.
