I try and refrain from posting dubsteppy tracks. But if I wanna dance, you’re gonna have to too. Take a listen to DVBBS’ track We Are Electric (feat. Simon Wilcox).
As previously mentioned, I love unique covers. So Settling.’s cover of Beyonce’s hit is definitely an A+ in my book. Take a listen to Put A Ring On It.
Is Tropical’s track Maria’s Colombia is an awesome indie electro-pop track. It’s got a really fun, bouncy sound to it, but also keeps the fun in control. It’s a pleasure listening to.
With harmonies like Fleet Foxes and an energy like Mumford & Sons, Port Isla’s Adventurers is sure to please any one folk loving (wo)man.
Delta Rae - Bottom of the River
Everything about this song. Just everything. This is one of those songs that I have the absolute pleasure of sharing with you. The way it starts out, the sounds, the harmonies they achieve, the unconventional instrumentation, the breakdowns and the builds are everything I could hope for in a song.
At work recently I’ve been creating some pop mixes and I’ve realized how much they all follow the exact same structure, not only that but most of them just keep coming at you. There’s no subtlety anymore; pop songs are just a catchy beat destined to be a “dance anthem”. The pop songs I’m referring to have their place but when I want to enjoy music they are the last thing that I turn to. I seek out songs like this that are well thought out, beautifully composed and truly display the talent a band possesses in creating their own unique sound. I think this song is a huge standout from their (debut) 2012 album, Carry the Fire.
It’s a long way down,
Any Super Mario fans out there? Take a listen to Filip Ilic & Klahr’s track Level Up, and wait for the drop. You’ll be satisfied.

This whole album is amazing. ProtoVision, the first single off the newly released album, Outrun, is deep in synths, Electric Guitar, and hard rock drums.

Wampire - Spirit Forest
I have a feeling this album will divide readers of this column. The English will know (and almost certainly love) it, the rest of the world… I’m not so sure. After the commercial success at the height of Britpop with Alright, Mansize Rooster & Caught By The Fuzz (probably the best Tracks 2,3 and 4 on any album in 1995?), Gaz and the lads took a step back and didn’t just deliver another round of the same. They stepped up the intensity, stepped up the craftsmanship and stepped up the pace. The slow, organ-led build to the title track would be one of 1997’s best intros if OK Computer hadn’t existed, the crunching guitars of Richard III some of the best headbanger material for kids too naive to headbang (read: your humble writer) and yet still contained classically Supergrass-esque fun track in Going Out. In It For The Fun.
