I haven't posted in a while because it's been a good two or three years since anyone has put out a decent song. Let's be honest, Top 40 is more exciting than most the shit blogs get excited about these days. And that's just sad. But this - this has restored all faith in dance music. Okay, yeah - it's so close to 1990 that it's almost a parody, and it could be book shelved between C&C Music Factory and Technotronic and nobody would blink, but whatever... it's what dance music should be - songs to make you [...]
Love Jan Blomqvist ! Don't generally post live videos but I have been listening to his 'Ink' EP nonstop. Great things to come.
A little late on this one, but I love Ali Love and I can't wait to see them at the Day Zero Festival . What are you doing on your last day on earth?
Sorry been so busy with the new job, hope some of you are still out there. Love this guy, please bring him to me.
Rush Midnight is the new project from Russ Manning, former bass player for Twin Shadow. His new EP drops October 30th on one of my favorite labels, Cascine. It's incredibly romantic and smooth and will get your blood pumping to all the right places.
Thomas Azier is going places. His newly released EP 'Hylas 0012 has all the makings of a synth-pop classic. His smooth and icy vocals paint winter landscapes in a time when all we are getting is heat waves, wave goodbye to the AC and put on this EP. Perfection! Incredibly danceable and suited for pillow fights in your underwear. Have listened to this short EP so much that I am too eager to hear a full length right away. Thomas Azier- "How to Disappear"
It's about damn time! New album coming out from these geniuses. If you didn't catch their last album 'Tuning Echoes', you have to go get it now! I expect nothing but huge things for the new album just from hearing their new single. Will be my soundtrack to my new move to Cancun for sure.
Nicki Minaj who? So obsessed with this one.
New favorite video of the year! Professor Possessor isn't new to BigStereo but this certainly is not the end either. They're releasing a new album out really soon and I couldn't be more excited. I have definitely seen the two boys from this band grow through out the years, adding the other band members and making this more of a live band has really kicked it up. This new single "Baby, It's Magic", is absolutely fun and catchy, once in your head you won't able to let it go. Anybody down for some crispy fried baby?
He never disappoints, but where my men at?
This is everywhere already, but it is too amazing to pass up. One of my favorite albums as of late.
Totally have a soft spot for The Darkness, and well a huge soft spot for Radiohead, so here you go.
Beak> has a new album out, pretentiously named '>>' but for good reason due to the fact that the first brilliant album was named '>'. The genius behind Portishead Geoff Barrow is part of the band and I couldn't have been more excited about this release. The first album completely drew me in with its Krautrock influences, dark and simple bass lines, moody keyboards, and moan heavy vocals. This new album is not much of a departure from that but continues the story of a lonely soul on a dark night running through a concrete maze. I [...]
Strange Powers is probably some of the weirdest stuff I've received as of late, and it's completely mesmerizing material. Lo-fi Trip-Hop Industrial is the only way I can describe it. I get in a weird dark mood sometimes and this Denver synth whiz is all that I've been using to get my fix. Having worked with other DIY out-of-this-world weirdos Modern Witch, Pictureplane and HOLLAGRAMZ we have nothing to expect but to be blown away. Enjoy his cover of brilliant dreamscapers Magnetic Fields "Strange Powers" below. Strange Powers-"Strange Powers(Magnetic Fields Cover)"
Puerto Rico's Fantasmes are releasing their full length album "Redness Moon" and their equally named single has a new video out, that is full of psychedelic sci-fi deliciousness. Reminding me of a perfect blend of personal favorites Velvet Underground and Sonic Youth, this band is a future classic. Make way.
Professor Possesor have just released the video to their first single "Valley Girl" from their much anticipated album due out this fall "Strange Paradise". I am incredibly obsessed with this track that has all the 802s creepy yet romantic feelings that has been void and not filled since Q Lazzarus' "Goodbye Horses". The video is absolute perfection and I can't get the track out of my head, I can feel my blood flowing from my fingertips to my heart. Thump thump. You can buy the track at their bandcamp here .
Colin from Walter Meego fame is moving on to a new solo project called MagicHour and it is nothing short of excellent. All the good parts of storytellers Walter Meego, synths, drums, and vocoder grooves. 'Remember Harder' will be released on August 14th, here is a taste of first single "My Kind", it is downloadable at the source so don't miss out! This is going to be a fun ride.
Don't need to say much, or anything at all.
Still loving these guys so much! They're gonna be huge! This track is the next single from their awesome EP "The Face", out now! Check it and keep your eyes and ears peeled!
