They’ve got their own twist of pop uniqueness that is unlike any other. This time they’re here with their new single, off their debut album, called “Superstitions”. It’s upbeat, filled with those edgy vocals and just overall a fabulous way to kick off what will hopefully be a just as wonderful debut release. Listen to the gem below and keep your eyes peeled for Misun’s debut out in November.

AlunaGeorge – Supernatural

AlunaGeorge_2595353b

After AlunaGeorge stole our hearts with their debut album Body Music last year, it was clear they were here to stay with their catchy pop tunes. It’s been a minute since we’ve heard new material from these darlings but the time has yet again arrived and let’s just say, it’s something to be very excited about. Their new track “Supernatural” gives that familiar AlunaGeorge sparkle but also manages to show that this duo is simply growing. It’s addictive and hey it’s somewhat fitting to the month of October with its supernatural vibes. Listen to the tune below.

Dirty Radio – Is It Cool

dityradio

Dirty Radio  sure knows what they’re doing. “Is It Cool” is a bootleg vocal remix which takes Kaytranada’s beat “246″ and turns it into the perfect combination of music magic. It’s catchy, fun, and will be sure to get everyone moving their bones. It hooks you in within seconds with its pure coolness (really). R&B fused vocals and a Disclosure-esque beat, there’s really no going wrong here. Listen to the goodie below.

[Premiere] DREAMERS – Wolves (Duplexx Remix)

dreamers-duplexx

Brooklyn band DREAMERS allowed us to premiere the Duplexx remix of their song “Wolves” today, and I have to admit, this is a perfect Thursday tune for me. The perfect blend of energetic pop and light electronic reminds me that it’s the best day of the week. The entire weekend is ahead of us, and if this song has any ability to predict the future, it’s going to be a lively and exciting weekend indeed. Here’s where I sign off and go add this track to my regular rotation.

You got me brainwashed, you got me fucked up, like you

Made In Heights are that mysterious band that continue to release tunes that are absolutely addictive in every way. This time around they’ve got something a bit sweeter and softer but it doesn’t lack any of their usual catchiness that always has their fans hooked. “Ghosts” is their newest addition to their music collection and it’s another noteworthy jam. Hopefully this is a look into the future for a new album? We will keep our eyes peeled!

Sam Smith – I’m Not the Only One (Feat. ASAP Rocky)

sam-smith

Sam Smith has been blowing up the world and our hearts so it’s only fair we get a new remake of a song here or there. “I’m Not the Only One” is a track that definitely stands out on his gorgeous debut album, so it’s exciting that he’s managed to add a new twist to it.  When you think Sam Smith, collaborations with hip hop artists may not pop in your mind but that can now end. ASAP Rocky has added his own edge to the beautifully sorrowful track “I’m Not the Only One” and it’s a good one. Listen to the feature below.

Alex Feder – Moments of Silence

AlexFeder25-608x608

When my alarm clock goes off at 6:15 every morning, I groggily roll over and reach for the remote control so I can have the news playing in the background while I slowly get out of bed. Somehow I find it’s a nice way to have some educational background noise as I’m gearing up for another workday.

The thing I often have to stop and think about is how often all we hear about on the news is bad news. ISIS threats, police shootings, riots, virus outbreaks, domestic violence, kidnappings…that’s all we tend to hear about. It’s a nice feeling to feel as though I know what’s going on in the world, but god damn is this shit depressing!

Well it seems that Alex Feder knows exactly what I’m talking about. In his song “Moments of Silence,” his first verse writes the story beautifully for me. He writes “You’re not alone. We’ll all be screwed when the morning comes. We’ll all be in mourning when the screws come undone. Everything is alright, everything is alright. You weren’t wrong, I spend most of my time just waiting around, as if good news will one day just find me somehow. Our hearts are so wired, our loves are so violent. These days the kids dance to moments of silence.  Our hearts are so wired, our loves are so violent. These days the kids dance to moments of silence. Everything is alright, everything is alright.” It’s as though he read my mind, but also put a romantic spin on it. That’s the power of great songwriting; it gets in your head and it can create a story all its own at the same time.

So who is this Alex Feder, you might ask? If he sounds familiar, it might be because you’ve heard his music before under a different name. We used to know Alex Feder as pop artist Leonard Friend, who we’ve written about a handful of times in the past. “Moments of Silence” is his first official single as Alex Feder. It’s not very often that I get the time to write about new music on here anymore (which, trust me, is a very heartbreaking reality for me), but when I heard this song tonight, I had to share it with you guys. Hopefully you’ll have a similar reaction to mine.
