Selected by LDS, April 2015
Happy April! We’ve selected another 10 new songs from 10 soon to be released albums guaranteed to lift your month! Happy listening….
1. TAME IMPALA – Let It Happen
The opening number from their forthcoming album. Great punchy beat as always and seamless production, more psychedelic dream-pop the way you would expect to hear it from Tame Impala.
2. BLUR – There are too Many of Us
A much stronger release from Blur as they finally return with ‘The Magic Whip’ which hits stores April 27th. This track gradually builds, developing into a strong political mover.
3. SOMEONE STILL LOVES YOU BORIS YELTSIN – Step Brother City
A high energy foot-tapper from the long awaited album ‘The High Country’. SSLBY showing signs of musical evolution.
4. MAJOR LAZER & DJ SNAKE – Lean On (Feat MO)
Addictive bouncy ghetto-pop, though would you have Major Lazer any other way?
5. UNKNOWN MORTAL ORCHESTRA – Multi-Love
The album title track from forthcoming release ‘Multi-Love’ expected for release in May. A tripped out psych track with cool dance floor undertones.
6. SAN FERMIN – Emily
Brooklyn based San Fermin continue to pursue their successful avant-garde indie pop sound with this the third track on new Album ‘Jack Rabbit’.
7. ETERNAL SUMMERS – Together or Alone
First single from forthcoming album ‘Gold and Stone’. Some would describe their sound as minimal pop, noise pop, shoegaze and post punk.
8. MUMFORD & SONS – Believe
The latest from Mumford & Sons (and no banjo?!). Certainly a new direction but a powerful and richly emotional song with polished production.
9. OF MONSTERS & MEN – Crystals
They’re back! Of Monsters & Men will soon deliver new album ‘Beneath the Skin’, and this the first single is another folk-pop delight, robust as ever with thundering drums and chanted chorus.
10. AL BAIRRE – Bungalow
Bouncy new track from Cape Town based Al Bairre described as a symphonic indie rock band, combining cello, violins, guitars, keys, ukelele’s and drums.
