I always imagined bear cubs to be feisty little fur balls (with sharp teeth and claws, no less), but we also know from extensive experience that London based producer Bearcubs’ sound is quite the opposite of those preconceptions. His electronica and soul is dreamy and syrupy, ridged and textured, like James Blake’s post-dubstep fused with Tom Misch jazzy electro-soul and Mount Kimbie’s glitchy electronica. We get a prime exhibit of his musical prowess on intoxicating new single Landslide, the second song revealed from his forthcoming debut album Ultraviolet, due out March 2nd. The dub heavy, heady hypnotic track takes us on a voyage of late night introspection, drizzled with dusky beats and taut strings. Pre-order Bearcubs’ new album, here. Catch him on his tour this March, which includes a show at 1015 Folsom in San Francisco on March 15th.

It’s a collaboration of epic proportions as Los Angeles based Dutch electronic duo Vicetone teams up with Echo Park indie pop stalwarts Youngblood Hawke on a song that flawlessly fuses the two projects’ sounds. Landslide is a synth florid, guitar profuse indie dance anthem out now on Spinnin’ Records. The incandescent and slick song is a re-work of a B-side from the band. Landslide arrives as Vicetone prepares for a slew of tour dates at the end of the month including a stop here in SF at Ruby Skye on the 30th and a NYE celebration in Philadelphia. Celebrate the holidays early with this vivacious charmer and purchase the tune, here.

Yet another splendid debut comes our way from Brighton, such a hot bed for fantastic music. New band Loa Loa gives us some crunchy, sludgy rock on their debut, Landslide. Copious amounts of pop punk scuzz combine with its alt rock grit, giving us a raw, raucous song that reminds me of The Cribs as much as it does Conor Oberst’s punk band, Desaparecidos. Landslide is fun and infectious, and it leaves me eager for more Loa Loa.

It’s the first of the month, which can only mean one thing: it’s time to be swept away by the exquisite music of red hot UK duo Oh Wonder again. I wish I could have shared this far earlier today. In fact, I wish I could have shared it the moment it went live, because Oh Wonder knock it out of the ballpark with their spectacularly soothing and beautiful Landslide yet again. Cozy and comforting, Landslide is a re-assuring, tender downtempo pop lullaby. As always, Josephine and Ant deliver gorgeous harmonies and gentle vocals on the sigh inducing gem. For all the die hard Oh Wonder fans like myself, I’m elated to share the news that you can now pre-order Oh Wonder’s debut album on their website or iTunes. I’ve already eagerly purchased both the signed CD digipak album and the signed double white vinyl, slated for release September 4th. Stream stirring Landslide on Spotify above, or Soundcloud below.

Fleetwood Mac’s Landslide is a beloved, timeless tune, one that has been covered plentiful times, over and over again, over the years. From gritty rock covers, to folk flavored, stripped down renditions, we’ve heard some fabulous versions of the song. British singer songwriter Robyn Sherwell is the latest artist to offer up an interpretation of the song, and the quieting, stark cover is a breathtaking beauty. Get ready for some goosebumps, because Robyn’s voice is exquisite on the song. Her serene, nearly a cappella Landslide is poignant and exquisitely entrancing, in an Imogen Heap sort of way. The track is the last song on Robyn Sherwell’s Islander EP, out this week.
