The Gospel Truth by Clarence Clarity is one trippy-ass video, and a dope song if you are a fan of early Yeasayer and AnCo.

This probably won’t even be the best track off the new Deltron 3030 album which is scary…

I don’t know if you have chosen a specific song to be your jam for the summer yet, but might I suggest South Africa’s, John Wizards and their tune, Lusaka by Night. I’m pretty sure this is what getting roofied and watching the Lion King sounds like. I obviously mean this in the best way possible…

When WU LYF dissolved a few months ago, I was pretty fucking bummed. Every time they came to the states from the UK I was there soaking up the great music they were creating and generally having a memorable, raucous night. I was pleasantly surprised to hear from 3 of WU LYF’s four original members a little while back who have started a new band, Los Porcos. Well, on the eve of my flight back to the east coast I have just discovered ex-WU LYF lead singer Ellery James Roberts’ first offering since the band’s demise, Kerou’s Lament. Thank you…

I’m digging Glass Animals’ new tune Black Mambo. It’s a creepy little banger. Like Alice in Wonderland if she had attended Governors Ball this weekend…

"You said I was a loser / said I was a boozer," sings Baby Alpaca on Wild Child, the lead off track on his forthcoming debut EP. Perfect soft pop-rock for hot summer nights on city rooftops with members of the opposite sex…

Mikky Ekko's new self-produced track, Disappear, is supposedly a “ruff demo,” but there’s nothing ruff about it. This is probably my favorite song by Mikky to date. Give it a listen…

Swim Deep’s song, She Changes the Weather, sounds like a 90s era Blur and Stone Roses beat up a modern day Coldplay and turned Chris Martin’s great song into a marvelous one. I assume marvelous is a step up from great but I suppose I don’t know how you rate your compliments on a scale from 1 to 10.
It sounds like the perfect alternate ending to the film, Reality Bites.
Here’s what a more eloquent blogger than myself wrote: “‘She Changes The Weather’ is the best thing the Birmingham boys have done, no question. From the dizzying twirls of the near two minute intro to Austin Williams’ portrayal of young love and the skyscraping final throes, every second is filled with adoration, class and sheer beauty. It’s world-conqueringly magnificent and enough to make even the most unromantic soul fall head over heels.”
I feel like I summed up what he said with that Reality Bites sentence, right?

Phosphorescent's lovely tune, Song for Zula, kind of reminds me of Bruce Springsteen’s Philadelphia being sung by a young Tom Petty. This is obviously not a bad thing at all…

Coming out of Cambridge, yet sounding nothing like Alt-J, are Bloody Knees and their 2:20 of, “singing about death and blood and knives and shit,” says leader Bradley Griffiths. Word.

Thundercat’s new track with help from Flying Lotus, Oh Sheit it’s X. Perfectly expresses the joy I felt as I booked my London vacation today…

Newest offering from Night Panther, All for Love.It’s a free download so what’s not too love. Sex pop at it’s best and one of the nastiest guitar solos I’ve heard in ages. Damn…
