This song is fucking brilliant!
That’s all you need to know about “True Love” by Hooray For Earth.
They’ve been around since 2005 and I don’t know much of what they produced since then. I’ve been listening to their latest “Momo” EP from 2010 and it’s pretty good, but this new song…well, as I said before, is brilliant!
“True Love” (the album) will be out in June and I have a really good feeling about it.
Let’s wait and see. For now, here’s “True Love” (the song) and its brand new video (a good one).

Download it here –> Hooray For Earth – True Love


A friend of mine just introduced me to this band and damn…it’s really good!
Here’s a little sample of their work (a good one) plus a pretty nice video.
tUnE-yArDs second album “WHOKILL” will be out next week and I’ll buy it for sure.

Download it here –> tUnE-yArDs – Bizness

Ben Gibbard is probably my favorite singer. Man, how I envy his voice!
So, it’s always great to listen to a new Death Cab For Cutie track.
I wasn’t crazy with their last album “Narrow Stairs”…I found it boring and unappealing. But this preview (“You Are a Tourist”) of the upcoming album caught my attention.
“Codes and Keys” will be out on the 30th of May and I’ll listen to it carefully.
Just one more thing:
Don’t you miss The Postal Service? I sure do.

Download it here –> Death Cab For Cutie – You Are a Tourist


Introduced in the new Adidas commercial, “Civilization” is the brand new track of the amazing Justice.
The french duo is back and judging by this new song, the new album might not be disappointing. Let’s hope it isn’t!
So, here u have it, “Civilization” the full track for download.

Download it here –> Justice – Civilization

Loads of good stuff coming our way this year!
And we waited way too long for this one!
“Live Those Days Tonight” by the Friendly Fires.
They just can’t do anything wrong, I guess. Loving this and really looking forward for the new album “Pala” due to be out in May.
Here’s the track list of the album and of course, the new song for you to listen and download.
We want more!

Download it here –> Friendly Fires – Live Those Days Tonight

“Pala” track list:

01. Live Those Days Tonight
02. Blue Cassette
03. Running Away
04. Hawaiian Air
05. Hurting feat. Harlem Gospel Choir
06. Pala
07. Show Me Lights
08. True Love feat. Alex Frankel (Holy Ghost)
09. Pull Me Back To Earth
10. Chimes
11. Helpless

One of my favorite new bands!
Foster the People sounds like MGMT with acne, but better taste.
For now there’s only one Ep available with three songs (all good!) that you can download below, but they have a full album coming out called “Torches”.
Can’t wait!
For now, I’m loving this. Love it too.

Download it here –> Foster the People – EP

SebastiAn, my favorite Ed Banger’s artist, just released a brand new song/video!
“Embody” is a great preview of what we’re about to listen in May. That’s right, it seems like he will finally release his debut album “Total” (originals, not remixes).
For now, I’m loving this!

Download it here –> SebastiAn – Embody

Yes, I’m a big 90′s revival fan…but I’m still trying to forget some sounds from that decade that are just way to painful to my ears.
Unfortunately, the new Calvin Harris track “Awooga” resembles what I hate the most in 90′s electronic music.
Great producer/singer/composer, but this one is just not for me.
It might be for you though, so here you have it.

Download it here –> Calvin Harris – Awooga
