Julia Holter is one of the artist that give us goosebumps and could make us cry with her fragile and beautiful music. Thank god we are totally badasses that never cry. Still, We are thrilled she’s back with a new album “Loud City Song” in August. Untill then we can heat us up in these cold temperatures with the opening track of that LP, called “World”. Can’t wait untill August 20 to hear some new material of this siren? One week before the release she will play at DOK in Ghent (13.08.2013). Yeah.

Nosaj Thing x Chance The Rapper – Paranoia.
New hype in hiphopland must be Chance The Rapper. Dominating the blogosphere with his “Acid Rap” tape (which you can download here for free), he now also dominated our stereo today (although that was actually the new vampire weekend record) with this Nosaj Thing collab. Melancholic and crispy beats combined with the sweet raps of Chance The Rapper. Cool.
Miles Kane – Don’t Forget Who You Are.
One of our favorite British rock acts goes by the name of Miles Kane. After The Rascals and Last Shadow Puppets, he made us addicted the last years to his debut album The Colour of The Trap. And now he will probably do this again with his new album “Don’t Forget Who You Are”, but in a more bombastic way. First taste of the album “Don’t Forget Who You Are” (out June 3th) is bombastic, catchy, commercial but great. Check it out.
Dirty Projectors – The Socialites (Joe Goddard Remix).
If you are looking for one track that makes every day feel like summer, you must check out this Dirty Projectors gem “The Socialites” in a great and groovy Joe Goddard remix. Let the sunshine in, in an alt way.
Noah And the Whale – There Will Come A Time.
Fun sweethearts Noah And The Whale finally have some new music out. With their new album “Heart Of Nowhere” (out today!), they got us all excited for a new hour of sunny indierock. First single “There Will Come A Time” already holds a lot of typical NATW fun. Check out the single and buy the album here!
vampire weekend – ya hey
Great day like saterdays always should have an excited surprise like this: a brand new vampire weekend track!! Stream this beauty above and enjoy!
Pure X – Thousand Year Old Child.
DAY-YUM! Pure X is on FIRE! After two brilliant tracks coming from their new (drug free?) album “Crawling Up The Stairs”, they got another alt gem to add to your playlist. Fragile and folky at first, out of control and noisy and the end. Sounds like the perfect soundtrack of a great day. Check it out below and bump your head along! Album out soon (5/14), excited!
Four Tet – Pyramids (Atoms For Peace Remix).
Having a little holiday deserves some kind of party to start it of. And an afterparty! For that, I suggest you check out this Atoms For Peace remix of Four Tet’s “Pyramid”. Dance-y in a non danceable way. Perfect for an afterparty with loops coming in at 120 km/hour. Check it:
Club KURU – Loot.
The Dutch musicblog OverMuziek still is one of my favorite places on the internet to discover new music. Sometimes you discover great music, sometimes you discover pure musical gems. A musical gem like this new British act CLUB KURU. With his dreamy approach, this guy -L L Erskine- delivers quality from the first touches on his piano. Not the regular and boring piano ballad, as you might think at first, but a musical masterpiece with his hypnotic voice wrapped around the dreamy sound of his music. The Beat kicks in and the song turns into our highlight of this musical week. Perfect. Check out “Loot” and “Long Drive”:
Daft Punk – Get Lucky (Ft. Pharrell Williams).
Five days late with this post, but still this track is toooooo good to ignore/not post. Of course we are talking about the most hyped and most looked forward song of 2013: “Get Lucky” by our heroes Daft Punk together with Skate boy P. First very funky taste of their new album Random Access Memories” (out 5/21/13!!!) and daaaaamn this makes us want soooo much more new Daft Punk. Untill then: put on a sad face, listen to this supercool track one trillion times and listen to all the tunes by Daft Punk.
