We were first treated to the music of Manchester quartet Lake Komo a year ago upon encountering their song Thinktank. The band has been relatively quiet since. Turns out, they’ve signed to Columbia and been busy in the studio working on a debut album. Lake Komo recently released a tender sweeping single named Milwaukee, which you can listen to below via its California shot video. They’ve also released a breathtaking demo named Manners, whose beautiful indietronica and golden falsettos exhibits some of the band’s major influences, including Bon Iver and James Vincent McMorrow. Milkwaukee and Manners are available on iTunes

OFFICIAL VID: Chiddy Bang – Mind Your Manners feat Icona Pop

Oh, wow. I just realized Chiddy Bang has a new song out titled Mind Your Manners, featuring Swedish electropop duo Icona Pop, whom I gladly featured on I Heart Moosiq a number of times. The hip hop track is a play off of Icona Pop’s great song Manners. Here’s the video for Chiddy Bang’s rap version and below it, I’ll share the original Icona Pop song again. Looks like Icona Pop are going to get a ton more attention going forward! Yay!

OFFICIAL VID: Icona Pop – Nights Like This

Ooooh. I love the 16 bit video game sound to this track. It’s super cheerful. So digging this. From Swedish pop duo Aino Jawo and Caroline Hjelt, here’s Nights Like This. It’s off their EP, no album yet. So, how many pop duos and electronic acts is Sweden going to keep contributing to the indie pool these days?

The video’s interesting too. I’m not all too fond of videos that take cinematic breaks since I just want to listen, but the first time or two through, I do appreciate the cinematic tricks. After that, I just want the song. The ending is extremely odd. I guess everything must have a dark side nowadays as that’s the popular thing to do! Song is too happy and upbeat, what do we do? Let’s make the video end on a very dark note. LOL! Edit: Actually, on rewatch I guess the whole thing has a lingering darkness throughout. And I read later on that Icona Pop is more Swedish “death-pop”. Makes sense. There is this droning darkness hiding behind all the upbeatness. I like it. 

Anyway, do you hear the endless remix potential for this track? 

UPDATE: Just checked out more tracks. Manners and Sun Goes Down (feat. The Knocks) are all good!!! Hmm!
