Simian Mobile Disco – Tangents
Feeling a bit frazzled by the inclement weather? Take a break with this pretty little bit of ambience.
Scott Matthews – Sunlight
Sometimes an artist you really loved can disappear under the radar and out of your consciousness only to pop up again years later with something that makes you go, “oh yeah THAT’S why I loved them.” That is what happened when I heard this song over the weekend – the understated, complex melody and heart-breaking voice reminding why Matthews is a little bit special and deserves exponentially more views for this song. Taken from Matthews’ fifth album Home (part 1), available now.
Broken Bells – Control
A memorable slice of melancholic funk-pop from the second album “After the Disco” by the American indie rock duo. This tune is my ear worm of the moment.
Benjamin Booker – Violent Shiver
The 25 year old, New Orleans based singer-songwriter makes an impactful introduction with his debut single. Raw guitar and rawer vocals force this old fashioned rock blues to be listened to. His eponymous debut album (which shares the producer of Alabama Shakes’ debut) is out tomorrow on ATO/Rough Trade.
