The Bongolian


just got sent through this little gem by The Bongolian, i'm a massive fan of heavy ham n eggs, and this has reminded me of breakfast! check out the new track HERE

as i was enjoying this, it did remind me alot of a track i used to play out some time ago, by a band called Big Boss Man. the track Party 7, at the time, and still is one of my all time fave organ shreds.... putting 2 and 2 together, both these songs are written by the same guy! enjoy...

i don't know much about Gentlemen Drivers i just know i love the new singles "Asphalt" and "Valdor vs Lisa Li-lund". it's like future dream pop electronica

xinobi


this was dropped on my plate earlier today, and boy did it brighten it up! this is the first i've heard of Xinobi, but hearing the "Work it Baby" EP has swung me, such a groove driven selection of songs, but have their heart set in uplifting house

Xinobi - Hawaii by Xinobi

but the vocals on Best of Me, kills it

new Stroke



so this is a 30 second leak of the new strokes record, which means 1 of 2 things, it'll either get taken down before most of you try and listen to it, or 2 its not actually a song they'll use

but its solid regardless, its the strokes, and we will welcome them back
