The guys behind such wisdom as ”If she is good on top, don’t ever take that for granted…” and “you should seriously consider creating some alias, maybe like mr jerkalot or something” (they said that to me in an email like 3 months ago don’t worry about it) have released yet another song, this time a remix to Strange Talk’s “Young Hearts”. You have undoubtedly heard at least some of their stuff before so I’m not going to explain their style again because I have been doing it every couple of weeks for months now. This has their classic sound and is once again a great remix. Also, they have broken their string of official tracks and released this one for free.

There’s not really anything left to say about The Chainsmokers or a song of theirs that hasn’t already been said, so I’m going to write a paragraph saying all those things again anyway. The follow up to their godforsaken awesomely cool original “#Selfie“ is an official remix for Bastille. Their version of “Flaws” has the same light progressive house infused with indie sound that many of their previous stuff does so if you’ve listened to a song of theirs before then you should know what to expect from this. The release date is currently unknown though if I were to have a guess, I would say either some time relatively soon or possibly later in the year.

Them Academy boys are it again with their latest release “Closer To Me,” a catchy little ditty with sunny vibes, and a refreshing sound compared to everything else that’s out there. For a 2 minute and 30 second song it’s a true tease from what we can expect from these 2, and another reason for you to download it and play it on repeat. Other then the music, I have to applaud the guys for their songwriting, pay attention to their lyrics, these guys can write! If you want to know what California and Brooklyn sound like when they make music together, Academy is it. This is a must listen and a must download.

Some of you might remember Times New Roman from my interview with him a couple months prior to this post, and he’s back with some visuals for his banger. “Diamonds” off his “Demo” tape has caught attention from multiple blogs and it’s well deserved. With a little soul there, and a little hip hop here, and some dashes of indie and mo-town all in one, there’s no way TNR won’t strike your ear the right way. Help the one and only Mr. Bolton celebrate his first visual premiere by watching “Diamonds” and get your groove on to some good ass tunes.

After a semi-intelligent child turned me on to their music a few weeks back, I have been absolutely hooked on Prelow. The mysterious band has only one public track on their SoundCloud, but the heavily-produced indie tune “For The Team” has me begging to hear more.
Lead vocalist, Jesse Aicher, whispers sweet nothings in to your ear as the song progresses. His soft, melodic voice complementing the hazy electronic instrumental to make a sound unlike much of what I have heard coming out of the indie genre.
The duo, although seemingly new to the scene, clearly has a natural cohesion, and a knack for making intriguing music. I encourage you all to check out Prelow’s “For The Team” and stay tuned for more from the NYC-based group.

The Swedish group NONONO (pronounced no-no-no..) very recently (though in all honesty it’s almost been a week) had their hit song “Pumpin Blood” remixed by The Chainsmokers and quite frankly, it’s not bad! It’s clearly not their best work and it actually kind of sucks but once you get passed all that it’s quite good! The track starts with a “really emotional piano intro that pulls you in”, according to them, and then climaxes at a good, yet oddly familiar drop that is probably a little too similar to their “Dreaming” remix. It then goes on to feature an almost trap like breakdown which certainly helps it stand out amongst their vast catalog of releases. This is likely not their best work but it’s still good song. We can’t expect them to hit a home run with every release because they just don’t have the talent to do so.
They have sold out big time and have their first original song “#Selfie” coming out on producing genius Steve Aoki’s Dim Mak Records on January 28th so get ready for that. It should be adequate.

With what I’m expecting to be a banger of a single coming next week, Timeflies deliver yet another slow jam. This week’s installment, a cover of A Great Big World’s, “Say Something”. Like the New York made indie pop/rock duo, A Great Big World, Cal and Rez tackle this mellow piano ballad, but as always, they add an extra pinch of seasoning. Enjoy this one before they turn up next week with their brand new single, “All The Way”.
