Little Boots – [Better In The Morning]

Little Boots is an English 'Working Girl' and CEO

Little Boots is one power hungry CEO/Pop Star

Little Boots – Better In The Morning:

English electropoptress Little Boots is transforming the boardroom into a dance floor with her upcoming album Working Girl. Just listen to the latest single Better In The Morning, and you’ll be wanting to take stocks out in Little Boots. Better yet, you could actually invest your time in Little Boots self-made record label On Repeat Records.

If Better In The Morning  is any indication of the impressively addicting electropop in store for us, then I am sure I’ll be sold on everything that is being offered. I’ll go ahead and have my people reach out to your people to work out a pre-order transaction.

Working Girl is out July 10th on a internet capable device near you.

In the meantime, let’s go over this business proposal known as Better In The Morning several more times.

Kid Astray – [Diver]

Kid Astray  Diver

Meet Kid Astray the fun-fueled sextet from Oslo, Norway

Kid Astray – Diver:

Take a deep breath and dive in with me! This electropoptastic tune by Scandinavian six piece Kid Astray is just what your summer has been waiting for. Take those summer feel-good vibes to the next level with all the luscious layers of my current obsession, Diver.

When I say that I can’t get enough of this truly uplifting track… I darn well mean it! If Diver was like a grand hotel’s Jacuzzi, I would have far surpassed the maximum time allowed in one use. I’m beginning to think my musical brain is prunning up from the prolonged exposure to this satisfying indie pop.

And to think, I used to believe the repeat button didn’t have a purpose…

SOAK – Sea Creatures

SOAK - Sea Creatures

The young indie solo act SOAK hails from Northen Ireland

SOAK – Sea Creatures:

Here’s a nautical music adventure that will surely bring a smile to your face, and fill your stomach with butterflies of youthful bliss. Sea Creatures is awash in glowy feel-good vibes that will transport you to a moment of oceanic serenity. Life’s problems just seem to melt away under the influence of this lovely gem. After all, it’s hard to be mad at anything when your insides have been reduced to a goopy mess of positivity and joy.

SOAK is the solo work of a young and talented female singer-songwriter from Northern Ireland. At only 18 years old Bridie Monds-Watson is making some serious waves internationally with her heartfelt tunes that celebrate, albeit toned down, life and love. I’m sure a well crafted debut album is on the horizon for us all, but only more anticipation shall grow in its absence. Until that day comes, I’m perfectly content drifting away on the serene voyage that is Sea Creatures.

Marian Hill – [Wasted] + [Lips]

Marian Hill - Wasted + Lips

Meet impressive Philadelphia based electronic pop duo Marian Hill.

Marian Hill – Wasted:

Marian Hill are a standout American duo that blend elements of jazz into sultry electronic music. Talented producer Jeremy Lloyd helps give life to the delightful vocals of Samantha Gongol that pierce across every track. One bite from any one of the tempting apples these two have concocted might leave one inoculated with their fresh brand of seductive indie pop. Wasted was the fruit of my downfall, and I suggest that you indulge into it as well.

Lips is another great example of the riptide allure the pair bring to the table. Combining delicious hooks with such a creative free flow of production is sure to gain them some well deserved attention. I just hope that listeners in the States are more prone to Marian Hill’s music than their similar sounding cousin’s across the pond AlunaGeorge. One listen of their newly released Sway EP and somehow I’m not that worried about anyone missing out. All seven tracks carry a special charm that can easily be enjoyed by us all.

Marian Hill – Lips:

Shout out to my local free format radio station 91.5 WPRK for introducing me to this lovely pair and their undeniable grip.

Big Data - Snowed In (Feat. Rivers Cuomo)

Big Data – [Snowed In (Feat. Rivers Cuomo)]

Big Data - Snowed In (Feat. Rivers Cuomo)

Big Data operates out of New York

Big Data – Snowed In (Feat. Rivers Cuomo):

Big Data, the brain child of producer extraordinaire Alan Wilkis, is finally ready to grace us with another killer track, and it’s pretty much as dirty and glitch ridden as it gets. Snowed In is an electro thrash romper that infiltrates the body prompting rhythmic spasms of dance throughout. Obviously the title is a reference to NSA whistle-blower Edward Snowden and is consistent with Big Data’s themes of mass surveillance and social media saturation, but we all know it wasn’t poignant politics that shot Big Data to top of the alternative charts last year.

That deliciously noxious beat isn’t the only wonderful thing this future banger has going on for it. Rivers Cuomo, lead signer and front man of Weezer, has lent his notable vocal talents to Big Data’s heavy arsenal. This collaboration is an outrageously intelligent decision, and a well executed one to boot. Cuomo’s vocals are just the stability needed to tame the erratic electronic production now widely known to pervade Big Data’s music.

Along with the release of Snowed In, Big Data has finally announced the release date and track listing for his upcoming debut album, simply titled 2.0. The highly anticipated album should be released on March 24th, and according to the track list we are in for some out of this world collaborations. Take a gander for yourself:

01 The Business of Emotion (Feat. White Sea)
02 Dangerous (Feat. Joywave)
03 Clean (Feat. Jamie Lidell)
04 The Glow (Feat. Kimbra)
05 Snowed In (Feat. Rivers Cuomo)
06 Big Dater
07 Automatic (Feat. Jenn Wasner)
08 Get Some Freedom (ft. Dragonette)
09 Sick For Me (Feat. Bear Hands)
10 Perfect Holiday (Feat. Twin Shadow)

To say I am stoked for the coming release of 2.0 is an understatement beyond belief…
