It’s now time for the second part of my top 50 songs of 2014 countdown – see part one here. 25) Röyksopp & Robyn – ‘Do It Again’ Released: 28th April 2014 Charted: #75 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DCbDVSwr_E4 A collaboration that no one was expecting, this is the best song in Robyn’s back catalogue and the most […]
It was also going to be tricky to follow up the storming ‘There Is No Other Time’ but in releasing ‘Show Me A Miracle’ Klaxons have failed more than you’d think in its shadow. Not as experimental as their earlier material nor as poppy as their most recent single, it falls between two chairs and […]
Nu-rave survivors Klaxons are gearing up for the release of their third album Love Frequency next week (out on 16 June via Akashic Rekords / Sony Red), and have just made the whole thing available to stream in full. Stream Love Frequency below via The Guardian: If you like what you hear, you can preorder Love […]
It’s June! Time for sun, festivals, BBQs, beer gardens and the World Cup! It’s also time for some very exciting-looking new albums. Last month saw the release of big albums from the likes of The Horrors, Gruff Rhys, The Black Keys, Chromeo, Coldplay and Echo and The Bunneymen – so June has got its work […]
Nu-rave’s favourite sons Klaxons are back next month with their third album Love Frequency. They’ve already revealed three tracks from it – ‘There Is No Other Time‘, ‘Children Of The Sun‘ and ‘Atom To Atom’ – which have hinted a slightly new pop-oriented direction for the band. Now they’ve revealed the fourth track from the […]
April was a pretty busy month in music – just a quick read through the music news will tell you that. Kasabian announced their new album, Liam Gallagher sent everyone into a mini-meltdown about a possible Oasis reunion, Glastonbury announced the first raft of acts for this years festival and there was also the small […]
The first cut from their upcoming third album is brilliant. Having fallen out of love with the band after their first album – their second passed me by – ‘There Is No Other Time’ brings the relationship back into focus. Though different from the likes of ‘Golden Skans’ and ‘It’s Not Over Yet’, it’s a […]
The first cut from the band’s third album Love Frequency, ‘There Is No Other Time’ is a surprising change of direction, possibly down to their work with Gorgon City on this piece. There’s certainly a more dance focussed feeling to it and it just about skates around familiar territory to deliver something that’s both poppy […]
The album will be called Love Frequency, and boasts some stellar names on production duties including James Murphy, Erol Alkan, Gorgon City and Tom Rowlands from The Chemical Brothers.
Two new tracks from the Klaxons, a new one from Gruff Rhys, the return of both Howling Bells and Little Dragon, killer remixes from Four Tet, Kanye West, Mssing No and brand new tracks from exciting up-and-comers like JUNGLE, Circa Waves, Hockeysmith and more. It’s safe to say February was a pretty awesome month in terms of great new music.
Below I’ve put together the cream of the February crop into a handy playlist – which you can also find on the All-Noise Soundcloud page. Check it out and let me know what you think…
