Bryce Vine, Peter Bjorn and John, She Is We, Cardiknox & 33 More Artists: New Music Monday!

March 21, 2016

bryce_vine_public_school_night_circus_skyelyfeSpring is officially in the air – and so is the sound of new music!

Let’s start with Bryce Vine. The style-savvy indie-hip-hop heartthrob just released his Night Circus album, and I’m particularly digging “Private School.”

That’s just one of 37 fresh tracks that are part of this week’s New Music Monday.

I’ve also got “What You Talking About?” by Peter Bjorn and John and “War,” by She Is We, whose fantastic singer Rachel Taylor I recently interviewed (more on that in days to come).

And per usual, I’ve got some new Cardiknox on here. I never miss a chance to include the indie-pop act on one of these playlists.

Click below for the full selection of songs, which also includes artists REYNA, LANY, Cedric Gervais, White Sea, Mt. Si, Tourist and Sneaky Sound System:

Cardiknox, Chairlift, AlunaGeorge & More: 40 New Songs!

January 25, 2016

Cardiknox_into_the_night_skyelyfeKick that case of the Monday blues with some new tunes!

I have 40 fresh tracks for you today from a slew of fun favorites, including The Knocks, Flume, Adventure Club, The 1975, Tep No and Lincoln Jesser.

But what I am loving most right now is Cardinox‘s “Into the Night,” Chairlift‘s “Moth to a Flame” and AlunaGeorge‘s “I’m In Control.”

And if you’re a disco house lover like myself, you will be obsessed with Louis La Roche‘s “Don’t Break My Heart.” So good!

Tourist, Citizens!, Ookay and More: New Music Monday, 11.17.14

November 17, 2014

TouristNMMWith the exception of Citizens! and Tobtok‘s lively “Lighten Up” collaboration off Kitsune‘s very awesome Sweet Sixteen Issue compilation, today’s New Music Monday selection, which includes songs by Ookay and Arms and Sleepers, is pret-ty mellow. Not a big supply this week, but hey, it’s quality, not quantity, right?

Tourist‘s “Wait” has a unique sound. It gets off to a bit of a slow start, but it does pick up towards the end of its dark, deep, mildly dubsteppy melody. The British artist is signed to Disclosure‘s label and definitely has a signature sound of his own.

I even threw in a Nick Jonas song for the heck of it. He wouldn’t characteristically be my pick, but honestly, with all of the horrible crap that’s successful in pop music today, why not give a little love to someone who actually put careful thought into his latest effort, and created real, non-gimicky music that tells a story? Give a little listen to “Push,” a slow jam that really exemplifies how the former tween star is transitioning from cheesy boy to young man. This pick is my favorite on his self-titled album – just under “Jealous,” of course, because let’s all admit it’s pretty catchy and we secretly (or not-so-secretly) like it!
