Dub Pistols I'm In Love

Okay...I've been constantly raving to whoever will listen to me about this album Rum and Coke. As a whole it ain't super strong, but the majority of the tracks make this a must have. This is the second single featuring the vocals of Beats Internationalist Lindy Layton (old Skool). Check out my other review of the first single Back to Daylight on this blog reviewed back in May.

Fourth single from the brilliant band Florence + The Machine led by Florence Mary Leontine Welch. The track is taken from their first album Lungs. Not as strong as the first three singles but still entertaining enough.

Get Back Guinozzi - Low Files Tropical

Video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bry_iMt-3Zk

What an amazing track; cut and paste pop ala avalanches almost. Also quite the weirdest video. Best thing I have heard in awhile. There seems to be a full length coming out soon in October called Carpet Madness. They hail from London or France or both.

U2 - I'll Go Crazy If I Don't Go Crazy Tonight



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

Very good video for U2's new song I'll Go Crazy If I Don't Go Crazy Tonight. The song itself has alittle bit of Coldplay in it in my opinion. Can't embed so you will need to go to Youtube with the link above to see the video.

IKVSDK are huge fans of the Dizzie and Calvin Harris as is our sister blog Panic Manual who have been hyping this track for weeks. Definately a floor filler. This is the third hit single from the forthcoming fourth album Tongue and Cheek. Dizzee, recently confirmed in an interview on Radio One, that he is leaving his grime roots behind, in favour of more mainstream pop. As noted by the past 3 singles Its more like left. The single finally physically got released this week.
