Laura Welsh – Breathe Me In

February 19, 2015

I’ve been a fan of Laura Welsh ever since I heard her Robin Hannibal (Rhye) produced Cold Front over a year ago, but some of you might be more recent fans, drawn in by her spectacular guest features on Gorgon City’s debut album or her contribution to the monumental Fifty Shades Of Grey soundtrack. Laura brings her opulent and elegant electronic R&B/soul sultriness to new song Breathe Me In, a sensual and passionate taste off her forthcoming debut album Soft Control. The full length drops March 9th on Outsiders/Polydor in the UK and Island Records in the US. Her luscious song and graceful ambiance remind me to pre-order the album ASAP.

There’s something about the guitars on British band Flyte’s new song Light Me Up that immediately brought me back to the 80’s, but once the smooth, delightful vocals and mellifluous chorus hit, I find myself thinking of Bombay Bicycle Club with a dash of Finish Ticket. It’s a fantastic combo. Light Me Up is both languid and springy. The single will be out November 17 on Turned Out Nice / Island Records, and Flyte will head out on a UK tour come late October.

Jessie Ware – Kind Of…Sometimes…Maybe (feat. Miguel)

September 18, 2014

There are SO many albums to look forward to within the next two months, both debuts and returns, and I can’t count on my hand how many my heart is skipping beats waiting for. However, there’s no doubt in my mind that one of those few is Jessie Ware’s sophomore album Tough Love, out October 21 on Island Records. Everything we’ve gotten a taste of off the release has been spectacular, with each track so very different from the other. Today brings us the most seductive and sexy jam yet, “Kind Of… Sometimes… Maybe”, which also features R&B kingĀ Miguel. Of course, the song and all of the rest of the album is produced by BenZel.

Guess who announced her debut album today? None other than Swedish songstress Tove Lo, who gave us Habits (Stay High) and plenty of other amazing tunes already this past year, not to mention the mind blowing remixes that came out of her songs, too. On September 30, Tove Lo will release Queen Of The Clouds, on Island Records. I can’t wait. I caught her live at Popscene some months back, and her live performance exceeded all expectations, by miles. To mark today’s announcement, Tove Lo also released a music video for her song Not On Drugs, a power pop song which seems to be a counter balance for Habits (Stay High). Rest of the world, watch out. Here comes Tove Lo!

The Gaslight Anthem – Get Hurt

Jersey rock veterans The Gaslight Anthem return August 19 with their fifth album Get Hurt on Island Records. They premiered a the title track off the coming release today. Get Hurt is a surprisingly moody song that sounds unlike most of their other alt punk rock music. The brooding, heartland tinged rock song reminds me of The Killers paired with The National, and I’m seriously loving the sound, considering my love of both those bands. Head over to Rolling Stone for a listen if the above embed is still locked (till midnight tonight).
