YOU GOT SO MUCH SOUL.

It’s hard to think of a stronger coming out party than Mapei’s snapping, crackling, pop-canonical “Don’t Wait,” and it remains every bit as magical today as it did upon its debut last year. We suspect the same will be true of “Change,” her long-awaited follow up, which reunites the Swedish up-and-comer with her star-making producer [...]

I’M NOT PASSED AWAY.

Tom Iansek, frontman for Big Scary and the production whiz behind our latest Australian love affair Airling, returns today with a reintroduction to his side project, #1 Dads. Lead single “Return To” is as pure a piano ballad as they come, all heady keys and smoked-out vocals take hold of you like a meditative cross [...]

SURVIVE THIS LIFE.

After first turning heads with debut single “Sirens” on Kitsune Maison 15 last year, Brighton singer-songwriter David Harks returns today with the first of four new singles for 2014, the ever majestic “We”. Gently falling to earth somewhere between Miike Snow and Pacific Air, it’s a brass-laden, synth-kissed soul train that soothes away your blues with [...]

The fourth installment in the HWLS series, “004″, features Noah taking the always brilliant Ta-Ku foundation to crazed new heights on what just might be [...]

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.

Up first we’ve got Reading’s Sundara Karma and LA’s Young & Sick, [...]
