Human League Things That Dreams Are Made Of

Old track off their classic early eightiesLP Dare but its just been rereleased in the UK with new remixes. I even think Hooj Choons is involved, the classic club/trance label which has been around since the mid nineties. For me, Human League doesn't do anything wrong. Great eighties new wave synth music.

Raveonettes - Dead Sound

I can't say enough about this band. We are now three albums in and they can't do wrong. Amazing in concert, amazing on cd/vinyl, just plain amazing. The new album Lust Lust Lust is brilliant. This is where this song is from. This track was just released on 7 Inch vinyl in the UK. Buzzing in the spirit of the Mary Chain

Out of the Uk.....fantastic indiepop from this 6 member band. Male vocals and female vocals.

Fantastic Pop music

Justice D.A.N.C.E (Rerelease)

Old song but just reissued in the UK with new remixes. Slamming club track. I'm not very keen on the full length Justice album but this track does it. Great dance music

Super Furry Animals Run Away

Catchy romantic/sad indiepop track from the Super Furry Animals. They have been around for years. Survivors of the Mind-Nineties Britpop boom. The Super Furries are a Welsh rock band who started out in 1993. They have just released their 8th album called Hey Venus according to wikipedia. This is the second single off the album.

Kanye West Good Life

Great hip hop track from the man who seems to do no wrong. Having already produced the anthem of the year with Stronger, Kanye follows up with this catchy number.

Shout Out Louds Tonight I Have To Leave It

Great melodic indie track by the Shout Out Louds. Vocals sound alot like Robert Smith and the music alot like The Cure. The Shout Out Louds are from Stockholm, Sweden. Damn, so much good music coming from Sweden these days. The track is from the bands second album called Our Ill Wills and was released in the past few weeks as a 7 Inch in the UK.

Maps To The Sky

Maps is the recording name used by Northampton-based musician James Chapman. Chapman is said to be influenced by Spiritualized, whom "he loves", Galaxy 500 and Low, who are his "favourite band". This is his third UK single off the Mercury Music Award nominated album We Can Create. Great indie-drone track.

Yelle A Cause Des Garçons

Thanks to my friend Laura for pointing out this great track by Yelle. Yelle (a portmanteau of yeah and elle) is a French singer from the town of Saint-Brieuc, Bretagne. She has just released her first CD called Pop-Up in 2007 and features this single A Cause Des Garcons(translates to "Because of Boys"). Great electro/pop indie track. I've also included a video of the remix version of the track which is even better than the original and the video is great. Remixed by Tepr Tecktonik??.

Dragons Lonely Tonight

Great indie/alt track called Lonely Tonight by the Dragons who are a band out of Bristol (UK). Sounds alittle like a cross between eighties outfits The Fixx and Joy Division. The track is from their first album Here Are The Roses.

Violets Troubles of Keneat and Siouxsie Here Comes That Day

The Violets are a post punk/indie/pop band from the New Cross area of London. The 7 inch is called Troubles Of Keneat and sounds like an updated version of Siouxsie and the Banshees. The Album is due out sometime this month and is called Lost Pages. Great track!!!

And while on the topic of Siouxsie, she released her second single off her first solo album Mantaray called Here Comes That Day (CD, 7 Inch, 12 Inch) last week in the UK. Hard to buy into her latest stuff when a band like the Violets are stealing her show. Still better than the first single Into A Swan

New Young Pony Club Get Lucky

New Young Pony Club are a five piece indie/club band from London England who have been receiving alot of critical acclaim for their first album Fantastic Playroom. Get Lucky got the re-release treatment in the UK this past week released on CD single and 2 7 inch records. This was actually NYPC's first single and was originally released in 2006. Maybe not as catchy a single as their other singles Ice Cream and The Bomb on first listen, it definately has grown on me.

Those Dancing Days Those Dancing Days

Great jangily indiepop 7 Inch released last week in the UK from these 5 girls who formed their band in Nacka a suburb of Stockholm, Sweden in 2005. Those Dancing Days is a "mixture of girl group charm, Northern Soul and Hammond driven pop". This is their first single called Those Dancing Days. Their second single called Hitten is just as good. They are releasing their stuff off Witchita, record label and home to Los Campesinos, and Peter Bjorn and John. I'm quite hyped on this band. Now if they could only make it to Toronto!
