It’s been a minute since the hooded Aussie chanteuse, Hoodlem, first caught our eye back in 2013 but it was love at first listen and we’re still sprung nearly three years on. Today, the duo’s back with new single “Kintsugi”, which strings together atmospheric soul-bearing vocals with elegant trip-hop touches, as they breaks apart the beat and piece it back together with a golden touch. It’s a salve for all the broken hearts out there and a welcome return for Hoodlem, get reacquainted below.
After a long stretch touring and promoting their lunar eclipse of a debut album, No Moon At All, LA’s Wildcat! Wildcat! return today with their first breath of new material in a minute. Produced by the band with Ran Jackson, “Straight To The Top” starts from the bottom and, well, now we’re here. Striking out with a more uptempo rhythm than the brooding moonless sky of their debut but retaining all the sun-kissed harmonies we’ve come to know and love from the band, it’s a promising taste of things to come on their forthcoming sophomore effort. Dive in below.
The Knocks and Louis The Child are two of the fastest-rising names in American dance music, and this week they join forces in unholy remix matrimony as the regal Chicago duo take their NYC counterparts for a technicolor waltz set to the tune of “I Wish”. Hot on the heels of their internet-shattering (10 million plays and counting) debut single “It’s Strange”, Louis take The Knocks’ T Swift love letter and remix it into candy-coated oblivion on one of their finest offerings to date. Check the rest of the “I Wish” remix package here and catch The Knocks selling out venues coast-to-coast on the Route 55 Tour, and don’t forget to get your preorder in for their debut album 55, arriving March 4th on Big Beat / Neon Gold.
Earlier this month, we introduced Tigertown as the newest members of the Neon Gold family, and today they take things to the next level with the grand unveiling of their debut single proper, “Lonely Cities”. Like “Dancing On My Own” before it, “Lonely Cities” channels heartsick emotion into triumphant vulnerability, as Tigertown deliver a long distance anthem for the ages. The end result is three minutes of shimmering alt radio bliss, weaving together tropical pop guitars and a soaring house piano chorus amidst surging brass and pulsing bass grooves. It’s bigger than you, it’s bigger than me, it’s bigger than ALL of us, and we couldn’t be happier to bring it into the world next month on Neon Gold. The Lonely Cities EP is out February 5th and available for preorder digitally now and on transparent orange vinyl in the Neon Gold Shop, preceded by the band’s Popshop debut supporting Savoir Adore next Wednesday (last few tickets here).

It’s always darkest before the dawn, especially when a new mystery act arrives under the shadow of pitch black anonymity. Not much is known beyond their foreboding name, The Hour, and the arresting visual accompanying debut single “No One’s Going To Heaven”, but there’s a lot to love here. Like the most sinister of souls joining forces, “No One’s Going To Heaven” rides high on a grizzly asymptotic bass line that flirts with the darkest side of the force, sounding like if Sir Sly and The Neighbourhood moved to a council estate in deepest darkest London. Get familiar above, The Hour is nigh.

JONES was one of our biggest revelations of late 2015, her breakthrough single “Hoops” establishing itself as a fixture in our headphones since it first looped its way into our hearts and minds in the twilight of last year. Now the London chanteuse is back to hit the ground running in the new year with a spine-tingling cover of Calvin Harris and Disciples‘ “How Deep Is Your Love” that’s some of her finest work yet. All sprawling atmospherics and heartfelt vocals, it’s a deep reimagination that stretches the original to its emotional limits and accomplishes the rare feat of outshining its source material. Get familiar with JONES below before she goes fully global in the months to come.
