Too Much Announce Club Emotion

In case you didn’t get hip to Too Much when they dropped their Patent Leather 7“, you’re going to be rewarded with an introduction to your new favorite dance duo! Consisting of Ian Svenonious and Rich Morel are brandishing an elevated style of club bangers. Morel crafts these pulsing beats that you’d likely hear at any number of dance clubs; the songs would be catchy and fun right there. But, not one to settle, Ian elevates the club sound with his spoken delivery; it kind of feels like Ian’s channeling a disco-ready Jarvis Cocker. The duo will release Club Emotion on Radical Elite on July 3rd.

Lust for Youth Announce New Record

Long time fans of Lust for Youth might shudder at the thought, but it seems like the band have completely embraced their pop sensibility for their new self-titled LP. Our first listen has this pulsing brightness, breaking through the cavernous darkness usually present in the group’s tracks; the production seems a little bit more lush, with vocal turns that charm like at 1.30 mark when the line “it hurts my eyes to see you walking by yourself.” That seems to be the theme here, a brighter sonic future, but still holding onto a grim disposition in regards to the world’s state of affairs, both personal and global. Sacred Bones will be releasing this self-titled LP on June 7th.

Rainy Day Track from Harry Permezel

harrypermIt’s rather rainy in these parts, which definitely makes this new single from Harry Permezel the most fitting tune for my day. It’s little more than some bedroom loops with a guitar line and voice working on top of it, though that simplicity really allows for the song’s emotional impact to connect with the listener. Harry’s self-titled album is being released this week, so spend a little time with it to see if this is something you’d like to get to know a little more…I know I would.

One More From Club 8

club8I figure since we’ve already shared two new Club 8 singles with you over the last couple of months, we should probably go on and share their 3rd single as well.  This one is called “Late Nights” and once again features some super catchy, synth laden house hits sure to entice everyone into a dance frenzy.  Since this is likely their last single prior to the upcoming album release, fans should enjoy this one for the next couple of weeks.

Pleasure is due out November 20th on Labrador Records.

Get Down With Future Elevators

unnamedIt’s rare for me to post tunes like this one from Future Elevators, but I feel like most of us may need it this Monday after a long weekend of exciting football and show.  The track, entitled “Modern World” is a sure fire dance hall hit with killer beats and a groovy vibe.  I’m confident that such a jam can brighten up even the worst of Mondays.  It’s already done so for me.

Future Elevators will be releasing a full length LP sometime in 2016.  Stay tuned for updates.

PINES Bring Us An Electro Jam

10404225_972772592737350_6882510982600130767_nI am rarely one to be posting a lot of music in the electro-pop genre, but sometimes you just get one of those jams that hits a nerve.  Today I’m stepping outside my comfort zone with musical tastes and proclaiming “All You Need” by up and coming Aussie act PINES as my hit of the day.  It’s simplicity makes it an elegant, beautiful and head nodding worthy song all at the same time.  I challenge you to hit play and not immediately play it again right afterward.  I’ve had it on loop all morning…

Just getting started up, I have very little information on the new group so stay tuned and say hi to them on facebook.

Wake Up with Oceans

oceanIf, like some of us at the ATH offices, you’re struggling a bit here on Monday, then turn up the stereo and kick it with this dance number from Oceans.  They’re just the latest act to sign on with Soliti Music over in Finland.  The grooves are definitely bass heavy, allowing for you to get that toe-tapping feeling in your feet, but there’s also a nice bit of warmth hiding in the vocals…winning over any listener.  Not only that, but it’s quick and to the point, allowing you to sink your teeth in quickly and move on.  Look for an EP on October 31st.

Sinkane Gives Us Another Hit

DSC02918_zpsbb8fd4feExperimental pop artist Sinkane has long been a personal favorite of mine ever since he split out on his own after working for countless indie acts in the studio.  Though he was a bit quiet for awhile, new music has been dropping left and right this summer.  I’ve yet to share any of that material with you for whatever reason, but today let’s take a second to jam to this new track “New Name”.  As with many songs by Sinkane, you’re going to get some experimental pop music with a heavy focus on the almost tribal rhythm section.  His prior work with Yeasayer clearly comes through a little bit here too and I have no issue with that.

Pick up new album, Mean Love, on September 2nd via DFA Records.

Dance Party with Strange Names

Strange_Names_promo3Coming to an ATH dance party near you is this great track called “Ricochet” from Minneapolis based Strange Names.  When you hit play, I’m sure you’ll hear some hints of fellow indie dance hit makers like Twin Shadow or even Junior Senior.  It may not be for everyone, but it would be one hell of a way to start a Friday or Saturday night for sure.

A full album of material entitled Common Attraction is coming sometime later this Spring.

New Dark Electro-Pop from LESANDS

I figured I’d throw the whole world for a loop by dropping this catchy hit from LA’s LESANDS.  Honestly, I’m digging it, though I can see just the faintest hints of a dub step influence hiding in the song.  But, the construction is pretty interesting in and of itself, not to mention the faint haunting of the vocals from the background.  It’s not my typical fare, and I accept that, but I just want it to be Friday already so I can get my dance on somewhere about town.  You dig?
