LONELADY

LoneLady is Warp Records latest addition to their expanding sound and empire. LoneLady is a singer/songwriter that channels the likes of Kate Bush, Suicide, Annie Lennox, and the Fall especially on this tune “Immaterial” that she is giving away off her album Nerve Up out 2.22.2010 on Warp. She is to me what La Roux should have been – an edgier and a more true to the New Wave/Synth Pop sound that the UK pioneered in the 80s. The Human League would be proud.

Magistrates x Grum

GRUM takes on Magistrates’ “Gold Lover” – stripping it of its polished pop down to a dark slow burner of a house song. RIP Magistrates.

Rimer London – Go Away

Rimer London is 1/3 of the Dutch trio Le Le but this time he is bringing the Italo Disco to the dancefloor. Sparkley almost 8-bit synths sprinkle the dance floor before that warm analog bass synth kicks in. ITALO TWENTY TEN!

“Intercity EP” out 1.25.2010 on Magnetron Music

ACTIVE CHILD

As the chill-wave hype spreads across the blogosphere into the IRL music industry it is a relief to find an artist such as Active Child that brings a sense of warmth and songwriter sensibility to this “genre”. Vocally he is reminscent of Bon Iver, Tunde of TV on the Radio mixed with some Grizzly Bear and some touches of Antony Hegarty. Musically it is beautifully layered subtle synths – so subtle that you don’t notice and just imagine a man with a guitar and his voice. Very refreshing stuff.

Miike Snow x Sinden


Sinden does a tasteful and good job taking Miike Snow’s “Silvia” (a track that I feel is perfect and should remain untouched) and turning it into a dancefloor friendly track. The “Silvia” single/remixes is out 1.25.2010.

Bullion – Say Goodbye to What

Bullion – Say Goodbye to What

Bullion’s “Young Heartache” EP was one of the most refreshing and most listened to pieces of music in 2009 for me. The way Bullion samples classic 60s tracks and recontextualizes them into hypnotic beats and grooves is quite a talent and he returns with “Say Goodbye to What” – a psycho-delic revisioning of who knows what sample, it is just some feel good stuff.

Two Door Cinema Club: BBC Mini Mix

An impressive mini mix for a band that is not known for their DJ skills. A little Daft Punk, The Rapture, Fake Blood, and Cassius does a body good.

Breakbot – Make You Mine

This new Breakbot tune has been making it rounds in the blogosphere, a track that was part of that Ed Banger Xmas Promo – definitely your typical Breakbot production style but with more of a Chromeo-esque synth pop vibe esp with the vocoder vox. I definitely see this whole disco synth pop sound being a big thing in Twenty-Ten with Classixx, Breakbot, Holy Ghost! and Chromeo leading the entire movement.
