Play this loud and it's almost summertime again. Great party-song from their upcoming new album 'Outside' (released January 2011). Also check out their cool website for some more music, if you've never heard off these guys before.. Tapes 'n Tapes - Freak Out
Gotye is an Australian solo-project from Wally De Backer. Eyes Wide Open is the 1st single for his upcoming 3rd album, to be released in 2011. His first 2 albums were rather succesfull in his native country, and if I listen to this track I can surely imagine why. It's smooth and easy to enjoy, but I'm not convinced this will be exciting throughout an entire album.. Only one way to find out, we'll get back on this somewhere in 2011!
Swedish Lykke Li is a new artist I've read things about several times now, but never took the time to truly listen to it. Now that I've just found out she's released a new free song (incl. b-side) through her website I decided to give it a spin and am very pleased with what I've heard. Pleased enough to have uploaded both songs to Soundcloud, so you can have a listen aswell! Check it out and if like it, share it (as Lykke puts it so kindly on her site..)
A few weeks ago in the 3rd Sundae Special I introduced a nice little band called Ima Robot. They were sharing several free songs through their website & have now released a full album called 'Another Man's Treasure'. It's an exiciting album that sounds fresh & challenges the good listener to really pay attention, every song consists of several layers and at the best moment, there's so much going on that your ears won't know where to listen, without it becoming a chaotic mess.. You can check out the full album here for free and if you like it get yourself a copy on their website.
This is by far the best new song I've heard this week, possibly this month (although I've finally discovered I Am Kloot last week, so not completely sure on that 2nd statement yet). You can download Memoryhouse's debut album for free here and this new song Caregiver will be released somewhere in the near future. Memoryhouse - Caregiver
