Labyrinth Ear is the London based electronic project of Emily Jacobs e Tom Evans. They’ve been around since the the summer of 2010 and they’ve been gaining some attention in the blogosphere over the time with tracks like Snow White and Walk on The Moon.
They have released their new EP Apparition on February 7th and to promote it here is the new video directed by Brendan Canty for the awesome Humble Bones:
Active Child is the electronic/alternative project of the American Pat Grossi. The band has been praised all over with the 2011 release of their debut album You Are All I See and has already toured with M83 which got them quite a fan base.
A month ago they released their latest single Hanging On, one the most memorable tracks of the album, with a beautifully sublime video directed by T.S. Pfeffer & Robert McHugh:
Electric Guest are Asa Taccone and Mathew Compton and they are a electro-soul-pop band from California. This Head I Hold is their debut single which comes along with their first official video ever. They don’t have a full album out yet but they are currently working with producer Brian Burton aka Danger Mouse so an album is expected sometime during this year!
So keep your heads up for these guys because you’ll probably hear a lot more from them in a near future:
Don’t know much about this band so ill keep this brief. Sweden has been putting out great pop bands in recent years and The Concept is another one from this recent wave, definitely worth keeping your eye on.
The four-piece band from Stockholm, released last month their video for Gimme Twice directed by Real Life, check it out bellow:
The Brooklyn electro-duo has just premiered the video for their new single, Bones. Two months after their debut single Empty Streets hit the web, the band is back with another great upbeat and catchy track! No word on a full length album or EP yet but they are releasing a track every month at their website in case this leaves you wanting more.
The video is also directed by Jeffrey McGovern, the same guy that brought us their first:
Few bands have been this influential in recent years. While some of us are still hopping that they will come together again somehow, James Murphy and his project LCD Soundsystem left the stage for the last time on april 2nd, 2011 on what some have considered one of the greatest losses of the decade in the music scene.
Despite the sadness, they left a legacy behind with their unique and fresh music leaving 3 critically acclaimed albums and millions of fans all over the world. On February 8, 2011, the band announced on its website “We are retiring from the game. Gettin’ out. Movin’ on.” and that they would be playing their last show ever on April 2 at Madison Square Garden in New York City. Shortly after the show became instantly sold-out.
This documentary, directed by Dylan Southern and Will Lovelace, picks up the feel and energy of this 4-hour epic last show and tries to retrieve a more intimate portrait of James, providing us with clear evidence of the legacy of this band!
Here is the trailer released today and bellow the official synopsis:
“On April 2nd 2011, LCD Soundsystem played its final show at Madison Square Garden. LCD frontman James Murphy had made the conscious decision to disband one of the most celebrated and influential bands of its generation at the peak of its popularity, ensuring that the band would go out on top with the biggest and most ambitious concert of its career. The instantly sold out, near four-hour extravaganza did just that, moving the thousands in attendance to tears of joy and grief, with NEW YORK magazine calling the event “a marvel of pure craft” and TIME magazine lamenting “we may never dance again.” SHUT UP AND PLAY THE HITS is both a narrative film documenting this once in a life time performance and an intimate portrait of James Murphy as he navigates the lead-up to the show, the day after, and the personal and professional ramifications of his decision.”
Fulfilling his promise to release a trilogy of mixtapes during 2011, Abel Tesfaye released at the end of last year his third mixtape entitled Echoes of Silence. I love his music and feel he cant do no wrong and this new EP is another proof of that.
So go on and download it your self at his website cause its all free! And as a thing to look forward to, The Weeknd is planning to release a deluxe LP this year with remastered versions of most of his tracks!
The californian boys are back with their fourth video also directed by Daniels and this time for Don’t Stop (Color On The Walls). Its a crazy video but Daniels delivers once again a very entertaining piece of film, check it out bellow:
Check out the video for Once And For All, a track you probably already knew but that the band is releasing as their next single from the forthcoming album. This is the version that will be featured on the album and video is absolutely brilliant!
Directed by Ben Strebel this little gem is as beautiful as it it is moving and its bound to make you shed a tear:
Check out the new video for the 4th single out of Every Kingdom from our favorite British surfer, Ben Howard.
