Jonquil – Mexico EP

September 5, 2012

UK indie pop outfit Jonquil previously caught my attention with some of their really good synthy pop songs that reminded me a bit of Two Door Cinema Club and Bombay Bicycle Club. Today, they released a free new EP titled Mexico that includes the new single plus several cool remixes. Stream the full EP below:

Throwing up a Jonquil share again. This time it’s a great live performance of Real Cold for The Amazing Sessions on a beach boardwalk somewhere in the UK. The trumpets are wonderful on this acoustic performance. 

OFFICIAL VID: Jonquil – Run

Run is definitely a summer tune to chill out to. I’ve touted Jonquil a fair number of times on here already, and the Brit indie rock/pop outfit definitely has a great sound that deserves much attention. They’ve released a video to go along with the catchy song off their recent album Point of Go. Is it just me, or do the shots of the girl remind you of Alice Glass at times, especially when she’s frolicking on top of green vegetation, a la music video for Crystal Castles’ Celestica? She’s even dressed like Alice Glass in that video! Hmm…..

Here’s another one of Jonquil’s tunes I like again… the one that really reminds me of Bombay Bicycle Club and Two Door Cinema Club.

Holy crap…

I literally gasped out loud when I logged into my youtube channels to check up on the latest uploads by La Blogotheque. There’s too many goodies by artists I like, so I’ll just giddy up and share some of the latest A Take Away Show uploads from the past few days… Some if it isn’t actually new, but are re-uploads from their older archives. This is gonna be some breathtaking stuff, trust me…

First, a 3 part St Vincent performance… Annie Clark, take it away!

Next, Jonquil, of whom I’d posted about a few times recently.

This one seems brand new and features Michael Kiwanuka, the rising, talented star…

And apparently, since the last time I’ve checked into La Blogotheque, they’ve joined hands with The Switch to co-share the youtube channel and share amazing music magic. Here’s The Switch’s session with Givers!

Stream Jonquil’s Points Of Go

February 13, 2012

Here’s a great video of Jonquil performing live in a studio in Oxford. The song is Mexico off their new album Points Of Go. These guys repeatedly impress me with their indie pop rock music. I’m ready to hear their name dropped a ton more after the album releases. Check out my previous posts. Even better, stream Points Of Go in full below the video!

OFFICIAL VID: Jonquil – It’s My Part

February 7, 2012

I introduced Jonquil not long ago with a few tracks and a Totally Enormous Extinct Dinosaurs remix. It was my first time tuning into these guys and I was pleasantly surprised with how great they are. Their sound is definitely very appealing to the times and fits what people are digging at the moment. Here’s the official video just released for It’s My Part. Their sound changes a good deal on different trax, but this one in particular makes me think of Bombay Bicycle Club, Two Door Cinema Club, and The Maccabees, but mixed with a slightly more French electro house and pop sound (throw in a tiny bit of Metronomy, Monarchy, and some other stuff). I stand by my statement before that these UK fellas have a lot of potential to become a lot bigger. Their third studio album Point of Go comes out in early March.

Jonquil – It’s My Part (T-E-E-D remix)

January 19, 2012

Here’s another great remix for the morning. Totally Enormous Extinct Dinosaurs shared this snippet of his Jonquil remix. It’s definitely left me salivating for the full track. 

And below is the great, original track from Oxford indie pop act Jonquil. Jonquil has a lot of good tunes and it wouldn’t surprise me if they grow in popularity soon.

I might as well share a few more tunes to introduce them more, including a cool cover of The XX’s Infinity. Enjoy!
