One of my favorite groups, Wild Nothing, just announced they’ll have a new album out next year. Life of Pause will be released on February 19th and can be pre-ordered here. It’s the follow-up to Nocturne, my second favorite album of 2012.

The concept was inspired […] The post Video: Memoryy – “All My Love” appeared first on .

With spurts of brass adorning Anna-Maria Nemetz’s passionate vocals, B.O.X.E.R.’s “Issue No5” is an immediately striking track. The dark-pop production and meshes wonderfully with the various brass accompaniments, which are delivered suavely in the James Bond cinematic sense — with a hint of brooding darkness over self-assured confidence. Nemetz’s ability to swap between menacing wit in […] The post B.O.X.E.R. – “Issue No5” appeared first on .
Gideon King and City Blog is a jazz fusion project whose new album, City Blog, is making waves among anyone who appreciates chilled-out sophistication in the vein of Steely Dan, John Coltrane, Wayne Shorter and Pat Metheny. Huffington Post called Gideon King’s new project “not just an ensemble but an experience … an aurally rich group filled with sophisticated […] The post Gideon King and City Blog – “City Blog” appeared first on .
