First release from a forthcoming EP (Apart due June 1) this song by Pete Yorn and Scarlett Johanssen is simply phenomenal. We know its Sunday morning tomorrow but can’t wait to give it a spin – is just after 9am a respectable hour? It is now … listen on @tunein https://goo.gl/VL6m3N for “Bad Dreams”.
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!!
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!
