B0nesmFascinating to hear Prince’s original studio recording of Nothing Compares 2 U (of course a huge hit for Sinead O’Connor a few years later). Its just been released by his estate. We’ll give it a spin after 4 – listen on @tunein https://goo.gl/VL6m3N
There’s lots of great music around but this is one of those rare records that stands out from the throng. So many influences, great songs and Leon Bridges has a phenomenal voice. This is another preview off his forthcoming album Good Thing – looking forward to May 4th.
Another #justadded track from Sydney trio Middle Kids, this follows on from Mistake in a lead up to their anticipated debut album Lost Friends. Great tune – coming up after 8am for its debut spin. Listen on @tunein https://goo.gl/VL6m3N
#justadded Yes not content with our #newmusicfriday additions we’ve just added a great new track from Hayley Kiyoko (@hayleykiyoko) called Curious. It’s off her brand new debut album Expectations. The former Disney star has put together some great pop tunes which can be enjoyed on their own merits. Pitchfork even gave it 6/10!!
It also gets our Album Cover of the month award:-)
Very excited about this new Kiwi single, exceptional stuff off Kings’ () second album, coming sometime soon. First spin this hour!!!
If you’d asked me last week whether I’d be adding a brand new Hall & Oates number to our playlist I’d have said – ah, yes please but REALLY? Yes its happened, the first new song from Daryl Hall & John Oates (@halloates) in 14 years, released in time for a major 40 date North American tour with Train. This is actually a pretty neat number, a tribute to hometown Philadelphia, and even features a little tribute to one of their classic numbers. Listen in tomorrow morning after 7 for our first spin of this number.
Sigrid (@sigrid) is dropping tracks like … flies? Last week we had Raw, now another great piano ballad from last year’s ‘upcoming pop star’. This one’s called I Don’t Want to Know – enjoy! Listen on @tunein //tun.in/sfAtE
We’re a few months behind the times but we’ve just come across this great duo/band from Florida in the US (the single was released last December!). This is a great song – we look forward to exploring some other music from Whole Damn Mess’ (@wholedamnmess) debut album The Queen and the Outcast.
Read a great album about them and the album here. A beautiful story!
Buy the album on iTunes here.
Amen Dunes is a project of Damon McMahon, dating back to 2006. Their fifth album Freedom is due soon and this single is pretty promising, although the video’s obsession with smoke is a bit unhealthy.
These guys have been around for a few years and have hit our playlist with this nice new cruisy pop single. Hovering near the top of the iTunes New Zealand chart it has the makings of a ‘smash hit’. They’ve toured the world and have accumulated over 12 million streams on Spotify, no mean feat. Their first album was released back in 2009 and a lot of their music has a reggae vibe – this one is more ‘poppy’ and we really like it!
