A superbly talented new artist out of Brooklyn named Nick Hakim is deservedly receiving a heaps praise lately, and it’s time you checked him out, too. Nick’s debut EP, Where Will I Go Part I, drops July 14 on Earseed Records. Cold is this week’s brilliant  taste off the release, and it’s such a luscious, jazzy, and moving piece of lush, soulful music. I can only imagine how incredible it would be to hear Nick Hakim’s R&B styled crooning on this beauty live. Cold follows on the heels of Pour Another, a sugary, swooning, downtempo treat. You can also watch his Yours Truly session below.

Cut Copy on KCRW

October 17, 2011

cut copy

Cut Copy was great on day 1 at Treasure Island Music Festival 2011. They were on KCRW just beforehand, and here’s the set. The Aussie’s voice at times reminds me of Morrissey, more so live than in recordings. For some reason the sound seemed muted live during Cut Copy’s set at TIMF; I wasn’t the only one who noted after the loudness (and awesomeness) of Chromeo’s set earlier on the same stage. Was still mega enjoyable and great though! I love the album Zonoscope.

SebastiAn mix

October 6, 2011

sebastiAn

Fresh live set uploaded by SebastiAn. I guess French house is just on fire this morning. Banging! If you like French house, your soundtracks for the day are set. Though SebastiAn often blurs the house with the dubstep with the techno with the other areas of electronic music. As you’ll hear in this mix.

Niki & the Dove live set in full

October 3, 2011

niki and the dove

I’m still oh so antsy waiting for an album from Niki & the Dove. Come on, when? WHENNnnNN? They’ve begun their first actual tour in the UK despite no album. I know a lot of you are waiting on a debut from them too. Patience, my friends, patience (or so I’m telling myself). The rumors are that their live shows so far are ridiculously good. Here’s a high quality recording of their live show… are you ready? Ohai there, awesome Swedish electro pop!

One of the awesome things about Justin Vernon is that he always switches arrangements around and utilizes different sounds with his live performances.. it’s not like listening to the album again. He changes it up. And not just the vocals, but the instrumentals, the layering… the emotion.. Genius…

I cannot wait to see him live in a few weeks…

UPDATE: The stripped down solo piano version of Beth/Rest is amazing, I like it more than the version on the album
