Premiere: Blondie - Long Time 

Words cannot truly express the happiness we feel to hear how fantastic and dynamic Blondie as a band is sounding right now! Their Pollinator album era is shaping up to be bloody gorgeous! The album drops May 5th and Long Time is out n o w and what a track! Co-written by fabulous Dev Hynes and harks back to their disco days, namely Heart Of Glass, but still has its gaze fixed on the road ahead. It's fun, tight and sounds like a true band playing together with all the energy that brings. Debbie Harry's voice, iconic as it is, soars over all that goodness and infuses with her wondrous talent. LOVE!

Premiere: Feist - Pleasure 

It's been over five long years since we last had a new Feist album. Thankfully the wait is almost over! April 28th sees release of her fifth studio album - Pleasure. First taster is the title track, a raw and guitar driven track with those iconic vocals front and centre. It's sparse and really builds up a painting of sounds as the time progresses, starting so soft you wonder if the stream is not working. And then takes off and soars. Says Leslie Feist:

I made this record last winter with 2 of my closest friends, Mocky and Renaud LeTang. I was raw and so were the takes. Our desire was to record that state without guile or go-to's and to pin the songs down with conviction and our straight up human bodies. I titled the album Pleasure like I was planting a seed or prophecising some brightness. The experience of pleasure is mild or deep, sometimes temporal, sometimes a sort of low grade lasting, usually a motivator. If the way you look at things is how they look then my motivation is to look with a brighter eye. 

Enjoy below!

Premiere: Goldfrapp - Ocean 

Alison and Will are coming for us all hard with their new Silver Eye album material, and we love it! Goldfrapp has always been about reinvention for every album - and this is no exception. For the new album, out March 31st, we're getting a harder sound, reminicent of 2003's Black Cherry and 2005's Supernature albums, but this time they go a bit deeper and harder. Ocean teams a stelly synth sound with haunting vocals and pounding drums and the effect is immediate - we cannot get enough. It sounds bloody fantastic, we're sure Depeche Mode are biting their nails at this very moment. THIS is how they should sound in 2017. Listen below!

Video Premiere: Lorde - Green Light

New Zealand queen of indie pop, Lorde is back with a bang! Green Light veers greatly from her debut album and heads more into a pure pop territory. It'll be interesting to hear what the full album will sound like. She's 20 now, not 16 and has traveled the workd so it's bound to be a mixed bag! This first taster is both musically + visually a party anthem, house piano and fist pumping dance moves. Welcome back, Lorde!

Premiere: Goldfrapp - Anymore (Remixes)

Goldfrapp's Anymore has been on steady repeat here the last few weeks and we cannot wait for new album Silver Eye (out March 31)! Also, we found out today that Alison took the promo pics herself, as seen above, using a shutter button attached to the foot area of the chair she was sitting on. Very cool! To amp up the single, here are two new remixes, the first ones of many, we're sure. Joe Goddard of Hot Chip uses a classic Chip vibe and adds a trippy feel to the already cool track. The new pitch on Alison's vocals is like stepping into a fever dream where Goldfrapp is the be-all-end-all and Silver Eye rules the skies with lazer sharp precision. The Danny Dove mix takes us more into the underground. A more club ready vibe awaits us there filled with smoke machines and stiff drinks being poured all around. Yes, the mix is complete with a build up and drop. Listen beloow!
