We love this disco re-interpretation from Miguel Migs, which is taken is from his third studio album, ‘Outside The Skyline’. The track features non other than disco legend Evelyn ‘Champagne’ King, with the video drenched in disco references. The album, which is out now on Om Records, features guest appearances from people like Bebel Gilberto, [...]
The next video from our favourite new soul singer right now is called ‘Stay’, and is another track off her forthcoming LP, ‘Soul Is Heavy’. You can watch other Nneka videos here.
With a new EP, ‘Flight‘, out soon on Tru Thoughts Records, here is a chance to watch a new video of one of the tracks, ‘Antiphon’, from their masterful debut LP, ‘Night Walks‘. And, thanks to their unbounded generosity, you can download your very own free copy of the song from the Tru Thoughts website [...]
To support our review of M83′s new LP (which we like a lot), here’s the video to the single ‘Midnight City’, a kind of haunting story of gifted children using their powers to escape their captors – very ‘Village of the Damned’. The album, ‘Hurry Up, We’re Dreaming’ is out now on Naive and Mute [...]
We first heard Anchorsong on the recent Shapes 11:01 compilation from Tru Thoughts with ‘Plum Rain’, one of the tracks from his debut single for the label (with Soundcloud stream below). The other track on the double-A side release from the Japanese multi-instrumentalist is Ghost Touch, of which you can watch a live performance video [...]
This will be the first single of the forthcoming LP from Nneka, which, with its refreshing mixture of hip hop, soul and afro-beat sounds would seem to sum up the feel of the whol album, which is now not due for release until ‘early 2012′. There are also a series of ‘Making Of…’ videos which [...]
The expectation is building in the Meme offices for the release of Nneka’s second album. ‘Soul Is Heavy’ will be released this October but in the meantime there will be a series of ‘Making Of…’ videos, the first of which we have previewed here. Also check out the video single for the title track which [...]
We’ve already featured three Bullitts videos on Meme Magazine, and, as they are meant to be a ‘full-on audio visual project’ we thought we’d bring you the latest one as well. This one is a tense, slow-burning track called ‘Those Silly Names’. If you like this you can also watch the video for ‘Landspeeder’ here. The [...]
We’re on a bit of a Lana Del Rey fixation at the moment, but you can hardly blame us with the quality of the tunes. Lana describes her sound as ‘Hollywood Sadcore’, and who are we to argue. ’Blue Jeans’ is the other track on her current single which is released on Stranger Records on October [...]
We think this is the sort of video that you will either love or hate, but we thought it was worth posting because of our current Kid Creole review: in that post we talked about a few ‘below-par’ tracks which let the album down – if they had replaced them with something like this, then [...]
Consistently eclectic and consistently good, German label Melting Pot Music’s latest signing is Sola Rosa, a soul / reggae / hip hop band from New Zealand. Their debut LP will be released on September 30th and the first single is called ‘Turn Around’ and features Iva Lankum on vocals. You can also download for free [...]
We know this video ‘contains scenes of nudity’ but the music from ex-Coral guitarist Bill Ryder-Jones is simply beautiful. Even better news is that you can download the EP for free from here. A full album will be released later in the year on Domino Records.
This is the latest mini-epic video from one of our favourite projects of the moment. The album (‘Moss Eisley’) will be released later this year, but Jeymes Samuel has been releasing a series of videos that tell the story of fictional murdress, Amelia Sparks, all narrated by Lucy Liu. If you haven’t already, check out [...]
Nneka is one of those artists that you know will be very big one day (she has already had a top twenty hit in the UK with ‘Heartbeat‘). Combining hip-hop beats, reggae grooves, brass riffs and African-pop, this Nigerian / German soul singer brings us her third album this coming September, called ‘Soul Is Heavy’. Based [...]
‘I’m a weirdo, and you’re a weirdo too’. Was there never a truer word spoken? This is the latest video from The Bullitts, who we have featured a couple of times before. Essentially an outlet for Jeymes Samuel’s musical adventurism, The Bullitts will be releasing their debut album, ‘They Die By Dawn And Other Short [...]
And now for some heavy Kraftwerk-esque electronica for you. Retrograde are the London-based duo of Tom Neville and Serge Santiago and they are in the process of releasing three EPs which will eventually end up as their debut LP, to be called ‘Motion’. To support the release of the ‘Mindfighter’ EP, the band are giving away Gigi [...]
The good guys at Melting Pot Music in Cologne will soon be releasing the ‘Beat Power’ compilation, a selection of top tunes chosen by Twit One, and featuring artsists such as Suff Daddy, Dexter, Hubert Daviz, V.Raeter, Fella Vaughn, Retrogott and Feux. You can watch the (rather brief) video from Tobrock here and also download (right [...]
If you like your electronica big and bold, then The Toxic Avenger is your man. Paris-based Simon Delacroix is about to emabrk on his debut LP (‘ANGST’) but has been gettting lots of attention from his recent singles, including Never Stop, of which you can watch the video and listen to the Bot’Ox remix here [...]
Kind of a ‘Planet of the Apes’ meets ‘The Famous Five’, this is the new video from Plug Research‘s Boom Clap Bachelors, who are definitely on trend with their Danish credentials. You can listen to the whole EP on Soundcloud here, and buy the music here.
This New Zealand pair appeared in Meme Magazine at the end of last year with their Mists EP. They will soon be following that up with their debut LP, ‘The Karlmarx Project’, which will be released on Melting Pot Music on June 3rd. In the meantime, here’s the short but intense video of the first [...]
Born in New York but now living in London, Lana Del Rey is currently putting together her debut album. Based on this rather spooky and unsettling video, it could be one worth watching out for.
‘Antique Soul’ was the storming debut LP from Geordie duo Smoove & Turrell back in 2009, and the pair are now ready to release their follow up album, which is to be called ‘Eccenrtic Audio’. Here’s a video taster of the treats to come, with this track, ‘Slow Down’, being part of a double A-side [...]
Anything with Dimitri From Paris’s name on at the moment can pretty much guaranteed to be solid gold. Following on from his monumental Get Down With The Philly Sound and the recent ‘A Night At The Playboy Mansion’ compilations, the French master remixer has teamed up with Italian DJ Rocca to create this 4 track EP [...]
This is an enchanting video from rising stars, Candi & The Strangers, who hail from Austin, Texas. The video is pretty much home made (but therein lies its charm) and describes an episode where ‘a non-sentient android seems to be making his own decisions to save an injured subversive leader from the futuristic police state [...]
