  • Little Boots: Motorway Nocturnes LP in May MP3

    Little Boots seems to finally be getting on with it, praise be to god, because in a world running short of incredible electro-pop we NEED this album. ‘Motorway’ proves that good music can’t be rushed. It also confirms that for once having patience (though seriously four years?!) has been worth it. The new single is an epic electronic masterpiece, delicately balancing Little Boots lightly textured...

  • #ThursdayThrowback – Malcolm McLaren: Buffalo Gals (Discobody Remix) MP3

    “All that scratchin’ is makin’ me itch…” While Malcolm McLaren (1946-2010) visited New York City in 1982 looking for a support act for his then protégée indie-pop group Bow Wow Wow he was exposed for the first time to Hip-Hop. Being the innovator he always was (he discovered and managed Sex Pistols; for many he was the godfather of punk) he immediately felt drawn to the scratchi...

  • Michael Bernard Fitzgerald: Firecracker MP3

    “My name is Michael Bernard Fitzgerald. I sing and write songs. I’m a dog man with a good plan and two hands.” Michael Bernard Fitzgerald is refreshing, optimistic and modest. His kind, approachable disposition gives way to an undeniable confidence onstage whether breaking hearts playing solo with an acoustic guitar and loop pedal, or a larger venue with his full band in tow. Regardless, youâ€...

  • [ON TOUR] Pearl And The Beard Lucius @ Rock-n-Roll Hotel 11/29 MP3

    Jocelyn Mackenzie, Emily Hope Price, and Jeremy Styles were once three strangers, unconnected denizens of New York City’s bustling streets. Until the draw of one true musical love drew them together through the vast skyscraper caverns. No longer strangers, but one musical being made of “three voices, one cello, one guitar, one glockenspiel, one melodica, several drums, one accordion, ninety-six teeth, a...

  • ILUKA: Delores and the Business Man MP3

    The alter-ego of Sydney songstress Nikki Thorburn, ILUKA, presents “Business and the Business Man,” what could be her most defining and ambitious release to date. Avid KKS readers will remember last year when I fell hard for her smoky retro sound captured in “Eyes Closed.” Rare are those moments when everything around you just disappears – I could have been pouring a cup of coffee over...

  • Elin Ruth: Bang MP3

    Elin Ruth‘s self-titled album is full of playful pop, proving eclectic but balanced. Elements of country are mixed with soul and gospel, taking the listener on an emotional journey throughout the 10 songs. Elin says “It’s my most personal record to date. Although I love playing with great musicians, it was a nice challenge to go into the studio and create something on my own. The knowledge that no...

  • #ThrowbackThursday – Oaktown’s 3.5.7: Juicy Gotcha Krazy MP3

    The image above is Oaktown’s 3.5.7‘s “Fully Loaded” cover, I realize. I didn’t have time to phish out my cassette single from storage and scan the proper one, so forgive me. Oaktown’s 3.5.7 were a female rap group formed by MC Hammer in 1989. The name Oaktown is a nickname for Oakland, California and .357 Magnum obviously chosen to represent their powerful dance moves!

  • Alphabeat: Love Sea (Azure Blue Remix) Remix EP MP3

    We at HQ have kind of been on an Alphabeat binge since they released ‘Express Non-Stop’ (which you should downloadNOW). So you might think we had our fill of the Danes when they sent over their remix EP for ‘Love Sea’ for a little sneak peak yesterday. Well if you thought that, you would be wrong, very wrong indeed. We found a new obsession, figuring out which remix was our favorite and wou...

  • The Orwells MP3

    As a blogger, or anyone who surfs the blogosphere for new music on a consistent basis, there are those times that you come across a band before they pull a Little Boy/Fat Man. I remember feeling this way when I first discovered the Alabama Shakes, and watched this video. The sound, the passion behind the music, and the passion/determination in each of their faces; there was no question in my mind that they would suc...

  • [VIDEO] Milano Sun: If You Go Home Alone MP3

    We first met the three young musicians from Gothenburg, Sweden who are Milano Sun in February. As fall draws near and skies grow cold and gray we are given the final song in their debut three part series of stirring soundscapes. ‘If You Go Home Alone’ is a delicately beautiful track. Gossamer synths wash out and back like gentle tides crashing into emotive guitars like rocky shores giving way to rolling...

  • [iTunes Single of the Week] Zedd: Clarity (feat. Foxes) MP3

    iTunes latest ‘Single of the Week’ is from none other than German electronic-dance producer, Zedd. He made what we at Kick Kick Snare feel is a wise choice by enlisting the talented UK artist Foxes to lend her vocals. But is it me or does this track channel Madeon’s “The City”? Not that it’s a bad thing, mind you, but seriously, listen at the 1:09 mark. The long extending c...

    “DJ Pipes and Ross Orton are two of my biggest musical inspirations/heroes. This is a secret dream come true” – Toddla T. When Toddla T was asked if he fancied the label commissioning producers for a remix album of “Watch Me Dance” he had a much better idea. He asked two legends of the Sheffield underground music scene, Ross Orton and DJ Pipes, to agitate, smash and rebuild his album i...

    Unlike many, Homeboy Sandman doesn’t shy away from accepting the responsibility of being a role model. He calls his raps his “kids,” and only sends the most prepared out into the world. Still, these are not monotonous lectures. As he says, “It’s a big hoax that rap [has to be] about anything. It can be about a wardrobe, about plant life. If you’re talented you can rap about any...
