TOY album Join The Dots

Album stream: TOY – ‘Join The Dots’

There’s not many more big albums coming out in 2013, now that Christmas is officially upon us and the music industry starts to focus on stocking-filler releases, but one LP I’ve had my eye on for a while is TOY’s Join The Dots. Their self-titled debut album turned out to be one of my favourites […]

Gentlemen Night Reels EP

EP stream: Gentlemen – ‘Night Reels I’

You may remember I featured London-based psych-experimentalists Gentlemen’s ‘Children Of The Setting Sun’ in a recent New Music Roundup. Today they have made the EP that song is taken from available to stream online. The EP is called ‘Night Reels I’ and as well as ‘Children Of The Setting Sun’ it features other promisingly titled […]

Album stream: Blood Orange – ‘Cupid Deluxe’

Since his first album under the Blood Orange moniker – 2011’s Coastal Grooves – the multi-talented Dev Hynes has become an in-demand songwriter, providing smooth and groovy tunes for the likes of Solange and Sky Ferreira.

Reflektor album

Unsurprisingly, seeing as the album leaked earlier today, Arcade Fire’s Reflektor is now available to stream online in full. The Canadian band have just made the album available to stream via their official YouTube channel in the form of a full-length lyric video that weirdly features Brazilian dancers – apparently the footage is from a […]

Reflektor album

Arcade Fire’s ‘Reflektor’ album has leaked online

Arcade Fire have built up their fourth album Reflektor into one of the most highly-anticipated albums of 2013, through a variety of inventive promotional activities – including guerilla-style graffiti, TV specials, numerous previews and trailers and more old-fashioned single streams. Despite them whipping the media and their fans into a froth of expectancy, early reviews […]

Best Coast Fade Away

Album stream: Best Coast – ‘Fade Away’
