HAMJAM

Australian band Hamjam is a collaborative project between Hamish Rahn and James Ireland. They just released their newest collaboration entitled 'a​/​s​/​l?'.

The whole album is full of awesomely weird (and mostly chill) electronica.

Too cool for school.

Gordi

Image may contain: one or more people, people on stage, people playing musical instruments and guitar

Australian artist Sophie Payten (AKA Gordi) is about to release her debut album, Reservoir.

It's a very personal and passionate album that mixes folk and electronica. Soft and explosive at the same time, it's truly a unique listening experience. Having written this at the ripe age of 24 she is setting the bar for her future works pretty high.

Lovely!





BUY IT HERE (out August 25th - pre-order now)

The Blassics

Haling from Hämeenlinna, Finland, The Blassics are a seven-piece live band that make an amazing mix of raw afrobeat and funk.

In their own words...

"The Blassics is the love child of two Finnish fans of rhythm music, Juha Sarkkola (Frankifier, DJ Frank Safka) and Tuure Tammi (Panda el Mundo, Incredible Mama). "Got a little help from our friends. The music wrote itself. It happened in a wooden house in a peaceful state of mind."

Ya dig?

Blondes

The new album 'Warmth' is a lovely bit of experimental techno from New York-based duo Blondes.

Perfect for the club or headphones. It's easy to get lost while listening to this.

So good.

Zita

No automatic alt text available.

Zita.

Remember that name. It'll soon be as well known as Lindsey Stirling and others of her caliber.

Zita is a Hungarian violinist and producer who makes a mix of world music and new age electronica. It is emotional, vibrant and just really, really cool! Each track feels like a sweeping epic. You can really feel the passion in the music.

I am honestly shocked she isn't more well know. She should be doing movie soundtracks and headlining stadiums! She needs to release an album soon!!

Egyszerűen elképesztő. (it's freakin' awesome!)

Black Grape - Pop Voodoo

Brandon Luedtke

Image may contain: 1 person, outdoor

This is my first introduction to Austin-based Brandon Luedtke. He makes americana/folk music with a nice hint of blues.

His lyrics are poignant, straightforward and engaging. The music is very skillfully put together with mandolins, cellos and harps all lending their sounds to transport you to another time and place.

This albums transcends my normal views on this type of music (I know this is blasphemy but I only like a few Dylan tunes, just not a big fan).  How's that for a sound bite, "Better than Dylan!"

Anyone can enjoy this at any time, anywhere. Regardless of your background. You can be sitting around a campfire, wearing headphones or on a cross country road trip. You can be in your office, at the gym or at home with the family.

It will move you. It will speak to you in some way. Something that a lot of music doesn't seem to do anymore.

I look forward to hearing more from him in the future.

Enjoy. I know I did.

Clarke and the Himselfs

Image may contain: 1 person

Imagine if you combined the pop sensibilities of Brian Wilson with the fuzz rock of Mike Watt and you start to get an idea of what Clarke and The Himselfs are and where they can take you, sonically speaking.

Basically a one-man-band started by Clarke Howell, he has been cranking out albums for the past four or five years.

He's like a lo-fi solo version of Arcade Fire.

Brilliant!

I LOVE THIS!!
