Max Tundra - Will Get Fooled Again

Video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AKGHyRdBkEU

Okay. I'm a huge fan of Domino Records and they don't seem to ever go wrong. This is a single by Max Tundra. He has been around for awhile. Very interesting but doesn't completely win me over. Max (ben Jacobs) started his music career by issuing a track off the famed Warp label back in 1998 before going on to releasing 2 albums on Domino. This is the first single off his third release Parallax Error Beheads You which is released in October. Interesting Quirky Electro indiepop.

Noisy sixties inspired Jesus and the Mary Chain type drone from Spiritualized. Second single taken from their new CD Songs in A and E. Organ crazy track and a video which will make you dizzy if you watch it for too long. Good track!!!

White Lies - Death

Video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=U15hUqK-Mdk

Catchy little song. Reminds me of something but I can't really place it. Maybe something eighties like. Rumour is that there is a Crystal Castles remix floating around too. Band is based in the UK. They have just finished up recording their debut album in Belgium and this is their second single. They are signed to Fiction Records.

Video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kHDjXkIOdpk

Nice indiepop track and first single taken from their forthcoming 2nd album called Victory Shorts released on Monday. The UK band based our of London are signed to indie label Memphis Industries. For some reason the vocals remind me of Lloyd Cole but I'm probably way way off.

James Doman - Everything's Gonna Be Alright

Video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=M2lvy3LjXro

Fantastic club track out on the Positiva label last week. James Doman is a Canadian dj (yeah Canada). The track samples the classic house track by Ce Ce Rogers called Someday which was released in the late eighties and also worth tracking down. Word is that he dj's superclub Circa here in Toronto to crowds of 3500. Not a surprise based on the quality of this track.

The Chemists - Something For The Weekend

Video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Sorjt38z6cI

Catchy etherial alt-indie rock track from this British band. Don't really have any more details other than that. This is their first single which was released in the UK this week. Their facebook page is no more than an advertisement for this single and their myspace page doesn't say much more.

Ladyhawke - Dusk Till Dawn

Video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gUyuEyVb6KU

What at first sounded it was going to be a 80's rock anthem turns into a bouncy indiepop track from Ladyhawke. A catchy follow up to the fantastic single Paris is Burning. The debut from this Australian singer is due out on Modular Records this month. She coined herself after the 1985 fantasy film starring Matthew Broderick, Rutger Hauer and Michelle Pfeiffer. Ladyhawke currently resides in the UK

Sonny J : Can't Stop Moving

Video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=r8Y8XpFtLbk

I am dying to get a copy of this album. Sonny J is absolutely brilliant. This is his first single from 2007 but is re-released this week. Weird Bizarre club/indie devil music. Sounds like a clash between the Go-Team and Michael Jackson. Check out the other singles by searching for Sonny J on this blog.

David Holmes - I Heard Wonders

Video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lwCBDF4robA

More indierock than electronica, David Holmes is back with a very cool single called I Heard Wonders. Droning guitars, swirling keyboards. Definately alittle different. Great track.

Just a excerpt from the video from this New York Band. The band contacted the Blog and directed me to their myspace. Catchy track. Not sure what is out there to buy yet. Video is alittle strange but heh...the music is great. Reminds me of an upbeat Tahiti 80.

Lykke Li - Breaking It Up

Video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WoQQ6Qed024

New single from Lykke Li. Lykke seems to be getting a push over in North America. The press over here have started to review the CD as I guess some major label has just handed out the free promo review copies for the full length Youth Novels. Although the CD was officially released months ago in her native country. When will the newspapers get current and start previewing discs before they are released. Why does one need a promo copy to review a disc. Get with it Now, Eye, Exclaim, Toronto Sun, Metro, etc etc.
