Miike Snow - Animal



Video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=niKT-kJfUz4

Jeff mentioned this band in a tweet recently as they were opening up for Lykke Li here in Toronto. And by coincidence, this new catchy single got released this week in the UK. Melodic indie rock/pop.

Deastro- Vermillion Plaza

Video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tvrDCbu-aZA

Nice atmospheric eighties alternative sounding track from this band. Not sure where they are from as the band's Myspace page is quite cryptic.

Eyes on 3: Pitbull, Chicane, MSTRKRFT

1) Pitbull - I Know You Want Me (Calle Ocho)

Video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=E2tMV96xULk

Slammin club track which has probably been around for awhile but got the full release in the UK just recently. Massive beat and catchy lyrics make this the song of the summer. Rumba.



2. Chicane - Poppiholla

Video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-phtXAyv5N0

Chicane keeps on churning out the nice atmospheric club trance tracks with an interesting but simple video for this one.



3. MSTRKRFT ft. John Legend - Heartbreaker

Video:http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Uv0Z_Q9CLEM

Very nice piano driven indie-electro track from MSTRKRFT featuring the vocals of John Legend. Bizarre video about teenage shenanigans and love.

John Hughes is Dead

One of my favourite movies in my teen years was Some Kind Of Wonderful. Not only for the movie but for the soundtrack too. Probably the best John Hughes soundtrack ever put out. Featuring songs from Jesus and The Mary Chain, Stephen Tin Tin Duffy, The March Violets, Pete Shelly, Flesh For Lulu, and Furniture.

Rest in Peace John Hughes

Thecocknbullkid - Clean Apart



Video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jU4EgR9OhYE

New Ep being issued State Side for Cocknbullkid. This is the 2nd cut off the EP Called Querelle. Curious what the first cut Kiss Kiss Kill sounds like. Released on IAMSOUND record label which is based out of the USA. Not a bad track though. EP also includes the earlier UK single I'm Not Sorry which we featured on this blog back in May.

Dakota- Wild Child

Video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0tFFK3k9_U4

This sounds like someone and I can't place it. Anyone want to take a stab. I want to say Suede but thats probably because the guy looks like a Bret Anderson type of character. Sorta catchy but maybe alittle whiny Britpop. I can't make up my mind.
