Arrivals: Icona Pop – Still don’t know

Icona Pop are a Swedish girl on girl duo. They serve a shouty, punky, electro pop resembling the likes of Le Tigre, their descendants Men and the French electro group, Yelle. The girls surely know their pop hooks, ‘cos “Still don’t know” is a contagiously catchy track. Simple as that.

Arrivals: White Denim – Drug/Anvil Everything & Mixtape

My favourite “free jazz inspired hard rock” band is BACK!  White Denim are set to release their 3rd studio album simply entitled “D”. Watch their new spinning video below.

Here another track that guys make available earlier this year:

Also, the band put together a mixtape incorporation the sounds that inspired their new album. Loads of goodies there. Psychedelic nuggets, hard-rock obscurities with a dash of reggae. Loads of jangly guitars, manic sax solos, raging Hammonds, Moogs, trippy drums, afro beats, French pops. A seriously tasty cocktail of sun kissed music. Check out the tracklisting and grab the mixtape on Gorilla vs. Bear!

Or download it directly from the the player below. Just lick arrow down button.

P.s. Here’s my favorite track by WD:

You can clearly see that these guys are completely bonkers. And I love it!

Arrivals: My Morning Jacket – Circuital/Holding on to black metal

And another album to look forward to. The alt-country band, My Morning Jacket, will drop their studio album number six entitled “Circuital” on the 31st of May. The title track, which you can download for free at band’s website, is a standard MMJ track. Slowly building up hard rock/country song injected with a dose of melancholy and hope. After taking off the ground and gradually gaining on altitude, “Circuital” ends up over the clouds covered mountain tops. Oh what a wonderful sight! And it gets better with every listen. The catchy, proper single, “Holdin on to black metal” employs a kids choir to accompany Jim James’ “Kermit The Frog” like vocals. Now, all they need is a guest spot on The Muppet Show …
