CLOSE TO MINE.

Cold Clinical Love are a new thing we know little about beyond their supposed homeland of the Åland Islands in Finland. But what they lack in cold hard facts, they ably make up for in tropical pop atmospherics and sun-tousled vocals, which they dole out in spades over clinical electronic beats. Following on from last [...]

NEW SHAPES GREAT ESCAPE 2014.

The Great Escape is still our favorite excuse to jet back to the old country every spring and in keeping with tradition, we’re teaming up with Chess Club and National Anthem to bring you another festival edition of New Shapes for the ages. Up first we’ve got Reading’s Sundara Karma and LA’s Young & Sick, [...]

BETTER TO BURN THAN FADE AWAY.

We’ll always have a special place in our heart for Panic! At the Disco, amplified tenfold now that they’ve decided to take our Magic Man guys on the road with them this summer alongside our dear friends Walk The Moon. Which brings us to Panic’s wintry new video for “Nicotine”, which we’re premiering today to [...]

WAITING FOR SO LONG.

We’ve been all-Scandinavia-everything ever since getting back from Stockholm a few weeks ago, and the latest object of our affection is Norway’s Sandra Lyng, whose kinetic new single “Don’t Care” provides the perfect 8-bit dance soundtrack to our lucid arcade dreams. Between Sandra’s puckered lip service and neon nights styling, it feels like a Sega [...]

POPSHOP NYC: PANAMA WEDDING + GGFO

The new era of Popshop is alive and well, and we’re not letting up any time soon. Keeping things rolling on from our double dose of NYC nights this month, Panama Wedding tops our March bill as they make their headline debut on the Popshop stage at Westway March 6th. Supporting, we’ve got none other than next huge [...]

GET UP GET DOWN.

From the delicious Rhye waves of the intro to the addictive, dazzled fullness that kicks in at the end, “Coffee” has got us crushing hard on Sylvan Esso, the new joint venture from Mountain Man‘s Amelia Meath and Megafaun’s Nick Sanborn. Following up last year’s “Hey Mami” and “Play it Right,” this single shares [...]

POPSHOP WEST: ARTHUR BEATRICE

It feels like we’ve been waiting our entire lives for this moment, but the time has finally come for Arthur Beatrice to make their maiden voyage to the US, and we’re honored to be a part of it. Britain’s best new band hits our shores for the first time this March, coming over for [...]

FROZEN OUT OF MOTION.

There’s certainly no dearth of pop duos these days but every now and then, one comes along that cuts through the noise with athletic ease. Enter Paperwhite. Featuring Savoir Adore‘s very own Ben Marshall and his sister Katie, the Brooklyn siblings have all the makings of a fully-realized outfit. Their debut single “Got Me [...]

GOLD051: THE KNOCKS

The Knocks have been some of our nearest and dearest for about as long as we can remember, and next month marks a beautiful family reunion as we meet again for the release of their forthcoming Comfortable EP. Out February 18th on sexy-as-hell limited edition purple and gold vinyl, it’s arguably their finest outing [...]

YOU ONLY GET WHAT WAS LOST.

It’s been relatively quiet on the Wildcat! Wildcat! front but today the dastardly trio are back with a bang in the form of this sinewy new fire-breathing reimagining of MS MR‘s “Think Of You”. After crushing it on their debut remix for HAERTS, this time around they take the atomic original and douse it [...]
