East India Youth – End Result

Bournemouth’s East India Youth got lots of praise for his debut album “Total Strife Forever” but the 2015 follow up “Culture Of Volume” took things up a notch. This track epitomizes the album with huge drums, tight synths and an almost Marc Almondesque vocal throughout. Enjoy... read more

Air – Venus

French band Air (or “Air, French band” as they portrayed themselves in the early days) have always had a knack at combining haunting synth sounds, beats and vocals. Venus, from the album “Talkie Walkie” is an uber-soundscape and a lovely song. Well done Air, when an album opens with a track like this you know it’s going to be good... read more

From the awesome album... read more

Paul’s recommendation is the track “Jordan”. Taken from their 3rd album “Head Down” this has more than a bit of Jeff Buckley about it. Enjoy.... read more

Temples – Shelter Song

Maybe the park is the backdrop for Temples sound, probably not. When I first heard this song I expected them to be from Australia and was pleasantly surprised that the sound was from near to my birth town. Enjoy the Jingle... read more
