Does It Just Take Time? // Ruxbin

Youth doesn't equal immaturity. I think this is quite a fitting statement for Ruxbin. Written, recorded and produced by himself, this is a lo-fi indie pop tune that has a multitude of layers to it. The whole song has an underlying feeling of sadness though it isn't as sombre as it probably could be. It's... Continue Reading →

All Talk // Kickn’ Tunes

Prepare yourself for a massive injection of Jamiroquai-esque funk. In the current climate of fear and general uncertainty, Kickn' Tunes have put together an EP that is essentially aimed to make you move and forget about everything that's happening. To be honest, it does work. The whole EP is made of samples (love a sample)... Continue Reading →

Innocents // Safe Lander

Dreamy, disco, funk, pop. Bit of a random set of words but there you have it. There's a 70s funk bassline, 80s muted guitar hook, synth and new wave type whispered vocals. It's a confusingly amazing track. Think Tame Impala, elements of Melody's Echo Chamber, some Pulp and maybe even some Psychedelic Furs and you'll... Continue Reading →

Inver // FRMR

FRMR is creating what seems like new-school folk music taking inspiration from traditional folk and newer electro sampling tracks. Inver is multilayered and is incredibly well textured. Everything seems to be a quite obscure choice but really does work. The pulsing bassline, the haunting children singing, the strings and almost random drum fills. Like nothing... Continue Reading →

Fun // Telquist

Telquist hails from Germany and creates Lo-Fi electro, that could almost be Chillwave, that accomplishes so much but seems so effortless. Slurred, nonchalant singing over massively laid back keys make you drift into a bubble of happiness. This song is like a little voice in your head. I don't quite know why but it seems...

Get Ready with Me // Lucky Iris

There is a good way and a bad way to create soft atmosphere without making a mainstream pop tune and Lucky Iris pull it off really well. It seems that they have been crafting the perfect summer indie pop beach party EP - Turns Out We Should Have Stayed At Home. Get Ready With Me... Continue Reading →

Daily Jobs // Bee Bee Sea

Why have one speed to your music? Where's the fun in sticking to established rules? Listen to this song, it's so carefree. It seems that Bee Bee Sea have been on the fringes of the mainstream for absolutely ages. Maybe that's the plan? There's no reason that I can figure that they aren't loads bigger... Continue Reading →

Tupelo // Chief Springs

I'm going to be entirely honest here, I absolutely love this song. This feels like it should take pride of place on all the indie playlists, it's absolutely dripping with The National, (early, and therefore good) Elbow and to an extent, Band of Horses. There is a great mix of just enough acoustic and slight... Continue Reading →
