Bombay Bicycle Club – To The Bone

April 8, 2014

Anyone else counting down the days to Record Store Day on April 19? I have a running list of goodies I want to try and find that day, if I can make it out early enough to the independent record shops. Of course, the other, and perhaps best, part of RSD is all the unreleased gems that we get to enjoy thanks to that special day. Bombay Bicycle Club will drop a limited edition 7" single (1000 copies) on RSD, and it features new tunes To The Bone and Reign Down. They’ve recorded this beautiful video for To The Bone, and what a sigh inducing acoustic gem it is. According to BBC, they recorded the tune during their sessions for recent album So Long, See You Tomorrow, but they couldn’t figure out how to fit it properly on to the album. They really wanted us to hear the song, and RSD gives them that chance to release it. Thank you, Record Store Day!

Bombay Bicycle Club’s F For You (Disclosure) cover

March 2, 2014

Interrupting your regular Sunday afternoon feed with this awesome cover. Bombay Bicycle Club visited the BBC Radio 1 live lounge last week (BBC on BBC, ha, I’m easily amused). They performed a cover of Disclosure’s F For You, and it’s a soulful, stripped down, uber cool, divey jam that certainly gives the tune a completely different jazzy vibe.

Tom Odell – Video Games (Lana Del Rey cover)

February 12, 2014

UK crooner Tom Odell performed a spectacular cover while visiting the BBC Radio 1 Live Lounge. After all the hoopla, all the controversy, the debut album, the deluxe version of the debut album, and so forth, my absolute favorite Lana Del Rey song still stands as Video Games, one of two songs that first hooked me on to her sadcore music and started it all (the other being Blue Jeans). It’s a song that certainly has a special place in my heart, and I’ve rediscovered that today, thanks to Odell’s immense cover of the track. His beautiful, emotional vocals and piano ballad style fits the song perfectly.

We’ve been following Danish artist MØ’s rising career on here for just about a year now, relishing each and every new tune she’s given us, including her fantastic collaboration with Diplo, XXX 88. She’s presented styles that range from energetic dancehall to Lykke Li like, haunting pop. Come March 10, MØ will be releasing her debut album No Mythologies To Follow. A new track was premiered on BBC Radio 1, and, as if we need more proof that her debut album is going to be stupendous, Don’t Wanna Dance is yet another great song. It starts out as a beautiful, ethereal, and enchanting listen, but quickly evolves into a spunky, punchy, 60’s flavored, hand clapping booty shaker. Don’t wanna dance, eh? Try not to! I’ve oft mentioned I’m very keen to these Scandinavian artists and their distinct vocals. I love MØ’s. I look forward to watching her blow up in the scene a ton more this year.

OFFICIAL VID: Bombay Bicycle Club – Luna

January 7, 2014

I was super excited when I saw that English indie rock band Bombay Bicycle Club has presented yet another track off of upcoming new album So Long, See You Tomorrow. Explosive, lush lead single Carry Me was a jaw dropping game changer that I love immensely. Luna is no disappointing follow up. It’s a fluid and airy track filled with bright optimism and an intoxicating build up. Watch the synchronized swimming video for the new tune below. I can’t wait for So Long, See You Tomorrow, out February 4 on Island Records.
