If it weren’t already obvious, YouTube is the new MTV. Its power as a medium for promoting music these days is second to none, and for an example of that, you need look no further than iamamiwhoami . With stunning, enigmatic videos that put Lady Gaga to shame, both artistically and in shock factor, the electronic group led by Swedish singer-songwriter Jonna Lee has been uploading songs on its channel since 2009 to much acclaim, allowing the group to release their debut LP, [...]
So we typically toss a video onto a post when highlighting a new band or a concert or whatever, and we let you draw your own conclusion about it. Sometimes we throw a change-up ... strike that - let’s call it a round up. These visual/aural displays were worthy of our attention, and we think you'll dig them. If a picture is worth 1000 words, then a video must be worth a million. Hold on to your hats! Words and picks by Brendan [...]
Earlier this week Mixmag let loose this exclusive track and we've been yearning for the weekend to begin ever since. The Finnish electro duo TJH87 got a remix rinse from none other than Robotaki and the result is absolutely incredible. Their styles are an ideal compliment to each other, mixing TJH872s slightly funk-infused heavy electro with Robotaki's own compressed basslines and French house leanings. Here those two collide perfectly, creating a tune with an enormous amount of flavor and serious dancefloor vibes, making it a prime choice to kick the weekend off with. The free download can be [...]
For Throwback Thursday we dial the clock back to 2011, when we talked to M832s Anthony Gonzalez about his ambitious double album, Hurry Up, We’re Dreaming , which was regarded as one of the best albums of the year. Here we talked to Gonzalez about the ambitious album and how '90s alt-culture informed the now-classic album. When you hit play on disc one of H urry Up, We’re Dreaming , the new album by M83, you know you’re in for something big. The album’s intro opens with a rising ambiance intercut with an arpeggio [...]
Axl Rose es el único miembro de la alineación original de Guns N' Roses, la que le dio vida al mítico 'Apetite for Destruction'. Por: @christianxrojas En el mundo de la música, hay miles de bandas que ven a sus integrantes lanzarse como solistas o explorar otros caminos del arte. Pero no siempre es así. Cuando las bandas se hacen viejas, en ocasiones son sus miembros fundadores son los que deciden tirar la toalla, y para no quedar en el olvido, estas agrupaciones siguen su camino con sólo uno de sus [...]

This year we sent some of our finest writers to witness SXSW first hand and mingle. This could have been a tale of new friendships, drunken friendships, confiscated platinum passes, lost emails and missed deadlines. Oh, and there was also a lot of music… Blondfire | Clive Bar (Mood Media Day Party) Blondfire kicked off [...] The post SXSW 2013 Day 1 (feat. Blondfire, Bonaparte, Sizarr, Hands, Japandroids, Local Natives & John Talabot) appeared first on Cougar Microbes .
Anthony Gonzalez is a musician, a member of the electronic group M83, and a brother too! He’s in fact Yann Gonzalez's brother, the director of « Les Rencontres d’après-minuit » selected in “La Semaine de la critique” and in which our cherished Niels Schneider, who posed for the upcoming Maison Kitsuné Fall-Winter 2013 lookbook, has the first masculine [...]
Deadmau5. Una vez más y previo a su presentación del próximo mes de octubre en la Ciudad de México, Deadmau5 llevó a SoundCloud un adelanto de su nueva producción. Se trata de "Suite 033, donde en menos de tres minutos, el productor nos sumerge en un ambiente espacial, como película de Hollywood, muy similar a lo que hizo M83 en el soundtrack de Oblivion .
In just a week, we give you rendez-vous at La Maroquinerie for our Kitsuné Maison En Vrai! #13 and we’re very glad to announce you the last band to join the already explosive line-up made of Guards, Wild Smiles and Techniques : Portland! You can already buy your tickets and join the event on Facebook. [...]
These are curious times for Anthony Gonzalez and M83 . Having gone from cult favourite to Grammy-nominated superstar thanks to ubiquitous surprise hit ‘Midnight City’ (still brilliant, still plain weird to hear it accompany the opening titles to Made in Chelsea ), Gonzalez found himself in high demand and when the opportunity to provide the soundtrack to the new Tom Cruise blockbuster came knocking, he did what any of us would do – he dived in head first, saving important questions for later. If you sought a general consensus of the Daft Punk-scored Tron: Legacy [...]
The VPME AELIUS is the name of Caesar Publius Aelius Traianus Hadrianus Buccellanus Augustus, or Hadrian to you and I. It's a pretty apt name for electro-duo Martin Roberts and Lee Tyler to have adopted as their collective musical moniker as they too, like Hadrian of yore, are adept at building huge walls. However unlike the Roman Emperor, AELIUS (the band) use the medium of sound to construct their walls, which is handy given that we are a music blog and not 'The Masonary' Magazine' . Their latest offering 'Echos [...]

The Indiecision Five at 5 is our attempt at sharing our musical tastes with you, and showcasing music from around the world. Each weekday at 5pm sharp, one NH7 writer or staffer will bring you five songs he/she is listening to on the day. Debayan Deb is here today to spin his five. 1. Foals - 'Providence' I love British indie rock. Love it even more when the band has mathcore tendencies. 'Inhaler' was the song that got me into the Foals few months back. Ever since then I have been [...]
Os californianos de Isla Vista que formam o FMLYBND querem mostrar o tempo todo que são bem unidos, começando pelo nome - um acrônimo para "family band". Os seis amigos se conhecem desde sempre, e a sintonia entre eles é clara quando a gente dá o play no primeiro single da banda, a surpreendentemente sólida “Electricity”. O eletrônico sofisticado e intenso do sexteto de Isla Vista ganha identidade própria ao mostrar uma música que parece trilha ideal das metrópoles que nunca dormem. Com sintetizadores envolventes à la M83 , a faixa é o perfeito cartão [...]
Ali Jamieson - Oblivion/Body Talk [ mp3 SoundCloud] M83 vs Koo De Tah As Ali says: - This started when I helped record an acoustic cover of the M83 track for my pal Daryl Bär. I ended up doing an eighties power disco replay of the backing track and all I could hear over the top was this loop from FM Attack's 'Yesterday' (which, in turn was sampled form Koo De Tah's 'Body Talk'), so I just sampled that and am sticking this out as a freebie. -
I know most of you are probably quite hungover from yesterday so here's a post more on the chill side of life. They're also great for those that just got out of school for the summer and are driving around on this sunny day.

We wouldn’t normally feature mashups and whatnot. It opens the floodgates to a whole tidal wave of shite that we don;t really want on the site. However, we are just going to leave this one here for you, because it;s so infectious you’ll probably be needing it for the coming holiday weekend. Heavy Disco bass man Ali Jamieson has thrown together M83 ’s Oblivion with Tina Cross’ Koo Dé Tah ’s Body Talk to funky effect. Having the spark of inspiration in-between assisting in the recording of an acoustic cover [...]
