‘L’Amour Le Jour’ by Le Couleur

‘L’Amour Le Jour’ by Le Couleur

Le Couleur’s new single is a super-cool slice of funky French-Canadian disco-pop. Laurence Giroux-Do, Patrick Gosselin, and Steeven Chouinard aka Montreal-based trio Le Couleur released their debut album Origami back in 2010. Since then their have been a couple of EP’s, but it’s not until now that they have been able to deliver their second LP, entitled P.O.P. (available soon) and from that comes this new single and video. The video is a colourful yet actually fairly straightforward, rather 80’s looking band performance thing and is the directorial debut of Thierry Sirois, and as a complement to the track itself Read more »

‘Little Things’ by Animal Noise

‘Little Things’ by Animal Noise

From the South East of England comes a band who started by self-releasing their debut album in 2012, and have been steadily building a fan base and a reputation from their successful live gigs. Their new video released on November 17th is sexy, pulsating and vibrant. In the video they seem to be running from pixelated images, a “glitch” is what they call it. The song is exciting and intrusive. It kind of reminds me of Make it Wit Chu by Queens of the Stone Age. And that is a good thing.

Live At Leeds by The Who

Live At Leeds by The Who

Some have called this the greatest live rock album ever, others say it’s the best album The Who ever released, so just what is it about Live At Leeds that makes it so legendary? More gutsy than the Beatles, more artsy than the Stones, and with a greater appetite for destruction than either both on and off stage, Britain’s 3rd great band to come out of the 1960’s always walked a path that was resolutely, bloody-mindedly their own. They were posessed of a visceral kinetic energy that came from the combination of four very different, almost ill-fitting personalities being squeezed Read more »

‘Philosophize’ by Parekh and Singh

The Indian duo’s new single comes with a wonderful animated video… Hailing from Kolkota and now signed to UK label Peace Frog Records, multi-instrumentalist/vocalist Nischay Parekh and percussionist/producer Jivraj Singh first achieved some kind of prominence in 2014 when the won a VH1 award for Best Newcomer, as well as a Jack Daniels Rock Award. two years later and they’ve just released their debut album Ocean and have followed that with this, taken from that album. The song itself is dreamy pop music with an experimental edge that doesn’t for one moment sound like it would come from the two rather bookish looking guys that Read more »
