Martin Solveig – The Night Out

June 14, 2011 by

0

I swore this guy was going to be a one hit wonder, but here we go with his second hit track. ‘The Night Out’ is a pretty simple, pop-based track from the producer. Not overly excited about this one, but it’s an easy listen and should spawn some decent remixes. Get some plays in before […]

New drop from Cudder, ‘Perfect Is The Word’. The track has an almost drawn out drumline sound behind some pronounced guitar work accompanying vocals from Cudi.

Toned Down Tuesdays: PJ Harvey – Let England Shake

May 3, 2011 by

0

PJ Harvey is a master of experimentation. A seeker of originality, Harvey’s sound is never duplicated from album to album. This is true for Let England Shake. Her music is the result of a  combination of influences like fellow english poet T.S. Eliot and musical groups the Doors and The Pogues – as well as […]

Sunday Funday and I came across some Jamaica while traversing my library. The Parisian duo had a strong 2010 with several sold out shows and singles that were well received. Sharing some similarities with another act out of Paris in Phoenix, Jamaica employs sweet sounding instrumentals and just the right amount of pop on top […]
