Kwamie Liv is ‘comin THRU’

comin THRU

What happens when you cross M.I.A with a little bit of Lana Del Rey and Robyn? You get Kwamie Liv– a Danish artist who is an amalgamation of the best qualities of all three. Already she’s impressed with 5am and Follow You but comin THRU is by far her most immediately likeable taste. Sweet, solemn verses are juxtaposed with a chorus that has the effortless flow of M.I.A’s Paper Planes without the need for ridiculous hand actions. There was a certain lo-fi quality to her last track, Follow You, but comin THRU is having none of that. It’s a crisp, slice of perfection that is difficult to box into one genre.

GEoRGiA follows-up ‘Be Ache’ with ‘Digits’

Digits

We featured GEoRGiA‘s first track, Be Ache, on the interns back in June and have waited for a follow-up to the l0-fi wonder ever since. Today, as if by magic, another one has appeared titled, Digits. Where Be Ache was a manic collision of sounds, Digits is a far more demure, streamlined affair. The beat still packs a punch but you really get to hear GEoRGiA’s sweet and sour vocals here alongside a mellow synth-line. It’s a definite nod to RnB but there is also an industrial rawness to it not unlike Kanye West‘s Yeezus. Digits has a progressed feel for melody than Be Ache and is likely to work it’s way into the playlists of more listeners. One of 2014’s names to watch.

Perfume-Genius

Listen to Perfume Genius’ bold, ‘Queen’

Perfume Genius Announces New Album Too Bright, Shares One more comeback for the day, I promise. You may remember Seattle-based artist, Perfume Genius‘ 2012 record Put Your Back N It. It was a haunting and melancholic yet underrated record that still sounds relevant today. If that record didn’t put him in some people’s psyche, his bold new single, Queen, is bound to. Queen is taken from his forthcoming album, Too Bright, which will be released on 23 September. It’s production is far denser than anything he’s done before with haunting whistles, brave percussion and a vocal that sees Mike Hadreas (aka. Perfume Genius) take charge like never before.

Hear Jamie T’s first track in five years, ‘Don’t You Find’

jamie_t_541_365

2014 is quickly becoming known as the year of the comeback. Apparently The Avalanches second album is currently being mixed, La Roux is due to release her sophomore LP Trouble In Paradise this week and we just featured a new song from The Drums. Add to that once more because British anarchist Jamie T has released his first new song since 2009 and it’s called Don’t You Find. T’s most notable track from his record, King & Queens was the ramped-up, Stick N’ Stones which well and truly grabbed the attention of any who didn’t know about him before. Don’t You Find takes a totally different path with the Brit sing with guitar in hand and a female vocal beneath at points. While it’s different, it’s not an unwelcome departure. It sounds unmistakably British like Noel Gallagher produced by Damon Albarn with a touch of Kasabian.

The Drums return with ‘Magic Mountain’

And the comebacks just keep on coming. It’s been three years since Brooklyn band, The Drums’, sophomore album, Portamento, but today they’ve returned with a brand new song. Magic Mountain sees the band reduced to a duo with founding members, Jonny Pierce and Jacob Graham carrying the torch. The song is not a huge departure from their previous work but their are certainly a few tweaks. The vocals are slightly hazy while the instrumentation whisks around in a dizzying flurry. The band told Noisey: “Together, we had just one goal: let go of any preconceived ideas that anyone has about the Drums and make songs to be as grand and majestic as we want them to be.” Well, they’ve certainly achieved that. Magic Mountain is a monster of a song.

Klo drop new single, ‘False Calls’

klo2

Klo, the duo made up of cousins Simon Lam and Chloe Kaul, have dropped their second single since Make Me Wonder was shared back in March. False Calls is said to have been an “icebreaker” for the cousins, with the two stating that they weren’t close before the project, not having seen each other in years.

“It was our collective Mum’s decision for us to collaborate and strengthen family ties.

The finished product sounds nothing like the first draft. It was messy and incoherent, but we managed to arrange it as we learnt to combine our two producing styles. We’d both never made anything like this before; it was as much a learning curve as it was amusing. The main idea of the track is loss of identity, which funnily enough came about after witnessing a drunken idiot. We expected it wasn’t leaving the bedroom studio, hence the lo-fi tape samples and degraded voice loops. Being our first track we put together, it’s a bit special to us.

We hope you like it, Mum(s).”

Tkay Maidza be like ‘Chiddy Bang Bang’ on new track ‘U-Huh’

artworks-000085193217-0xuryn-t500x500

South Australian fire-cracker Tkay Maidza has unleashed the follow-up cut to 2013’s mammoth Brontosaurus. The sassy U-Huh comes at the perfect time for Maidza who is geared-up to play Splendour in the Grass next week and tour the country with Listen Out in September. It’s less manic than Brontosaurus, but not less-confident as Maidza struts her stuff as a more-talented/less-heated Azealia Banks. This girl has some serious potential to take this worldwide (no intentional reference to Pitbull). U-Huh is a crisp production that carefully treads a line between hip-hop and pop.

Mount Kimbie Has a New Mixtape

With a new album in the works and a freshly announced, 5 date US Tour, Dom Maker and  Kai Campos from post-club London duo Mount Kimbie, debuted a new mini mix on The Fader overnight. Cue cheers.  Calling it one “for when you get on the plane feeling rough and put music on and fall asleep and have bizarre and extremely vivid dreams,” Campos says it reflects the duo’s headspace at the moment: Disjointed and all over the place. Looking forward to churning out some hits while in the US, the pair cite “having to constantly turn down or leave food and weed,” as the downside of touring life.
