It turns out that one of the most beautiful things I’ve listened to all day happens to be a live demo, and it absolutely floored me, again and again. Pr0files is an electronic indie-pop duo out of sunny Los Angeles. They write songs about “sex addiction, hypnotherapy, and love”. Well, there’s no denying the love that seems all so palpable on Forgive, their astonishing demo unveiled this week. The fact that its live gives the recording a spacious crispness that’s as captivating as watching a set live, and the most impressive thing about it is the vocals. A live demo like this would make any imperfection glaringly obvious, and I cannot find any at all on the beautiful, piano laced, poignant ballad. Forgive was released as a preview in advance of a debut EP, out September 16. Of course, after melting away plentifully to Forgive, I had to listen to their studio tracks, and I found myself swooning away to their more upbeat and lush synthpop treats, too. Stream Luxury and Call Yourself A Lover, below. Call me a new fan of Pr0files!

Yes, there’s more great rock coming your way, because I’m just loaded with rock tunes lately! What’s going on? Boys and girls, check out new Gothenburg, Sweden five piece School and their fantastic debut single SoLong, a song that carries some Wolf Alice like 90’s alt rock mixed with a touch of The Cranberries and some The Joy Formidable like borderline shoegaze sound. School also released a video for the tune this past weekend, which you can stream below. SoLong is out right now on iTunes and will be released in the UK on September 1 via Luxury.

OFFICIAL VID: Lxury – J.A.W.S.

October 10, 2013

I’ve had Lxury’s J.A.W.S. on a shortlist of must shares for a few weeks, and with today’s release of accompanying trippy visuals, the sick electronic song can wait no longer. Lxury is a producer from London who creates syrupy, shimmery house music. Try not to get lost in this one once you hit play. Just try. The blissed out, euphoria inducing track was first debuted on Disclosure’s BBC Essential Mix. This one’s way too gorgeous.

OFFICIAL VID: Azealia Banks – Luxury

September 27, 2012

Azealia Banks is clearly becoming a lead fashionista in the indie scene, alongside her gal pal, Lana Del Rey, though with inherently contrasting decades on display. Her most recent videos have been sleek and full of sexy outfits and confident style. In similar vein, the new video for Luxury (Fantasea mixtape) sports that 90’s style easily recognized from her videos for Van Vogue and 1991. It’s hard to believe with all these EPs, videos, and singles out that Ms. Banks still has no debut album on the shelves. The latest rumors are that she’ll have one titled With Expensive Taste drop on February 12, 2013. Please take that with a grain of salt. I have a feeling this date will get pushed around a bit, if not by a lot. With the explosion of how music is marketed and listened to in this day and age, I wonder if eventually there will be SOME artists that will scratch the LP route completely and go with EPs only, as their target audience may be the percentage of the market that chooses to download individual tracks rather than purchase full albums. Interesting thing to wax pensive over… I, for one, am a loyal fan of the LP and the album jounrey, but I can see how this might work better for some artists.
