Yuna released her ‘Sixth Street’ EP, back in May, the first single off that EP is 'I Wanna Go.' Yuna has followed up with visuals for the single, which has her and her man running around the streets and beaches (of California?) looking like two love birds. This sun soaked single screams summer and most importantly good times. We wish music like this would invade the radio. Check the visuals for the Malaysian singer-songwriter below.

“All I ever wanna do, is be as good a man as you” This past weekend at a Father's Day BBQ I sat through hours of listening to a Pandora pop radio, after a while the tracks got to me, so I took over the DJ booth (uh, laptop). I started playing a lot of summertime hits ( Get Lucky , Ways to Go , Gasoline and Oh Shiet It's X ) that we have featured on the site these past few weeks. Another artist I played that people took to was Mayer [...]

Not sure who I love more Chlöe Howl or Lorde. I do know that pop music is heading in the right direction with these young talents. Howl's video for her brutal honest single, "No Strings," starts off as a casting call for the video and then ends up turning into a party. If you gotten a chance to listen Howl's Rumour EP[ here ], you know the song is a look into some of the temptations teenagers across the world the world run into. "With all this love, your unprotecting. I hate to think, what you're collecting.." [...]
Another day, another talented artist. Yesterday London based Dornik dropped his debut track (thanks to Disclosure for the heads up tweet). Signed to PMR Records family, Dornik also plays drums in Jessie Ware’s live sets. Dornik's debut track ‘Something About You’ is a potent yet smooth ambient R&B track, with his soulful vocals over something that sounds like Pharrell and Chad produced it. PMR records have another winner! (Disclosure, Jessie Ware, Julio Bashmore, Two Inch Punch, etc)

Fresh Face and Danish singer, Karen Marie Ørsted aka MØ , has released her video titled “Waste of Time.” Not sure we can remember when we saw, 'Parental Advisory' before the video starts.

Waste of Time will be released digitally July 7th via MØ's new home Chess Club Records Mo will play a headline show at London's Cargo on 14 May, [...]

Disclosure - Settle 9/10 PMR Records The sound of summer is here, and it embodied by a British duo of brothers known as Disclosure. The 21 year old Guy and 18 year old Howard Lawrence have been around since 2010 (their claim to fame eventually being the remix of Jessie Ware’s “Running”), and even though they recently released a wonderful collection of singles in April, their freshman opus, Settle is of such force that it is difficult to pick out anything negative about it at all. Disclosure’s “sound” is a bit difficult to pin down, as it [...]
