Two Door Cinema Club – Beacon

I have been highly anticipating Two Door Cinema Club’s new album, Beacon. The official release date isn’t until September 4th, but the band has kindly offered Beacon to be streamed in its entirety a week and a half early. I just finished listening through it, and I’m pretty impressed. So far, The World is Watching is my favorite track, but I’m sure that the more I listen, new favorites will be made. No surprise really, but Beacon is packed full of catchy, indie pop jams. I couldn’t ask for anything more from Two Door Cinema Club’s sophomore effort. It’s a strong follow up to Tourist History.

Video: Sole Grunt – Now She’s Alone

Sole Grunt recently released some visuals to go along with his latest instrumental track, Now She’s Alone. I’m going to go ahead and assume that the situation that we’ve stumbled onto here, is that this girl is recently single. All signs seem to point towards it. Then again, maybe she just really hates stuffed animals. I’m not here to judge and break down people’s emotions. I just provide good music for your ears. So sit back, enjoy Sole Grunt’s smooth production, and watch this chick demolish an innocent little teddy bear. Download Now She’s Alone for free, below.

Jinja Safari and Kinfe – Silence of the Guns

This is such an amazing project. Paired with a great cause, and my love for Australian music, I’m so excited to promote this project. The Key of Sea series is aimed at bringing together some of Australia’s best and musicians who have had to leave their countries of heritage for safety. The first taste of the upcoming The Key of Sea is a collaboration with favorites of The Record Stache, Jinja Safari, and an asylum seeker from East Africa, Kinfe. The track is titled Silence of the Guns and the outcome is an extremely powerful and hopeful piece of music. It’s an inspirational call for peace matched with a fantastic tribal pop backdrop. The Key of Sea Volume 2 is out October 19th and all profits go to¬†Asylum Seeker Resource Centre, Human Rights Arts and Film Festival and Sudanese Australian Integrated Learning (SAIL). I’ll definitely be getting my hands on a copy. Preorder here.

New Artist Alert: Moiez

Moiez is a 20 year old DJ/Producer hailing from British Columbia, Canada. Right now, Moiez is absolutely killing it. His signature progressive house tracks capture your attention, effortlessly keeping you wanting more and more. It’s clear to me that Moiez is here to stay, and 2012 will end up being a huge year for him. Just last week he topped the Hype Machine Charts at #19 (Moiez – You Only Live Once) as I expect him to do the same this week with his new remix Sam La More – I Wish It Could Last (Moiez Remix). The future for Moiez looks bright as there is no denying the talent he brings to the table. I can’t wait to catch him live! Make sure to support Moiez on Facebook as he is a new artist taking off quickly!

The Electro-Rock of Emma

Based out of North London, Emma has been secretly playing gigs around the city since their formation earlier this year. In such a short time, the band has really perfected their sound. Emma’s songs sometimes borderline hard rock, but are quickly brought back to a more welcoming soundscape thanks to layers of backing synths and hazy vocals. It’s an excellent combination of post punk, shoegaze, and synth pop. At points, Emma’s songs almost become chillwave, but manages to contain enough power to keep you fully alert and rocking. With tracks packed with this much energy, don’t expect Emma to be hanging out in London’s underground too much longer. Their debut, Purple Trees EP, is soon on its way, so stay on the lookout for that project. Keep up with Emma on Facebook, and while you’re there show some love to The Record Stache.

Hot Chip – Night and Day (Dead Rock Machine Remix)

With so many producers trying to make it this day in age, it’s getting harder to stand out and bring something new to the table. However, Dead Rock Machine doesn’t seem to think so. They bring a flawless new remix that sparks the funky side out of me, and I like that. Their style reminds me of something as great as the ’96 Bulls, mixed with a hearty helping of electronic sounds. I really enjoy this remix, and I hope you will too! Make sure to like Dead Rock Machine on Facebook, and while you’re at it check out The Record Stache on Facebook as well.
