Sometimes, The best comes out of the worst. I had no internet until today. But it appears to have treated me pretty well with ultra-decent tracks to finally listen to when I finally got my fiber optics together again. LA Priest is one of those. Sam Dust's post-Late of The Pier days are long gone. However it seems he's back with some rather catchy dancey funkey track : "Oino". But DIYMAG puts it way better : "Belonging both to the previous decade and the exciting years ahead, this is the sound of a musician Dust-ing off the past with spectacular swagger."
Spin "Oino" by LA Priest above.
With the amount of music I have to spin, I can only select a few to do write ups on – it’s a one man operation here, and my grey cells are dwindling by the hour – so here’s a little weekly bonus selection of music we haven’t had the time to cover but really do recommend nonetheless those one liners is where I usually start my posts. It’s packed with the latest tracks, gems, and dancefloor goodness you’ve come to expect from Sodwee.com. HIT PLAY NOW, Relax :[accordion] [item title=”Got a track to share ?”][contact-form-7 404 "Not Found"][/item] [/accordion]
[column]Apidae are from the UK and signed to DumontDumont in Stockholm, Sweden (RY X among other bands and artists call it home too). Listen, indulge, and thanks us later. You’ll notice Radiohead springs to mind instantly…. I say no more.[/column] [column][/column] [/columns_row]
[columns_row width=”half”] [column][/column] [column]Late Night disco here we come. If you like easy-listening music, sexually induced to impress whomever you have in sight, Lisa Alma‘s “Man” is what you need. It has that Sade edge and atmosphere to it. Along with a tall glass of your favorite Gin, cold tonic water to top things nicely and finally a cucumber sliced for that added flavor you need to kick things with brio and the partner you’ve always wanted in sight. Only then, you have the perfect end to the night, and it’s not over… Lisa Alma is from Denmark and will release her album “Sweater” on April 21st.[/column] [/columns_row]
[columns_row width=”half”] [column]This is a track inspired by David Lynch‘s “Twin Peaks”. “Diane” is a brilliant debut piece for band members Andrea Adolph, Max Bussell, Sean Dwyer and Luciano Russo who form BREAKFAST. I can totally see this as the next theme tune or end credits for the next GIRLS episode… But the Los Feliz (Los Angeles) band have more up their sleeves we’re pretty sure about that and soon enough, we’ll be hearing them loud and clear on international media outlets. Keep a close eye ! For fans of Cocteau Twins, The Cure, Flying Lotus and Talking Heads[/column] [column][/column] [/columns_row]
[columns_row width=”half”] [column][/column] [column]Cosmo Sheldrake shouldn’t be a complete stranger to you if you’ve been reading Sodwee’s introducing series in the past year or two. And no stranger than the dudes cray-cray approach to things, ‘Tardigrade Song’ see’s Sheldrake imagine himself as one of nature’s toughest species, a tiny sea-water animal about as big as a pencil dot. His vocals soar as the track quickly descends into an insanely well crafted piece of music. It’s indietronica made by one man only whether it be in a live setting or in the comfort of a studio..[/column] [/columns_row]
[columns_row width=”half”] [column]If it was only for visuals, I would’ve skipped quite happily but CätCät and Mary H have decidely made a effort with the sound side of things on this “Boarding” track. It’s a track that stays with you. Soulful, yet ready for club floors and wide audiences across festivals. No surprise that CätCät has been taken under the wing of Edouard Rostand’s (Calvi On The Rocks) own label Parissi La Musique. You’ll probably want to listen to the rest of his soundcloud profile as he has plenty to offer there if you’re into that moody, loungey music, most notably with “Bang Bang” another collaboration with Qveen Elizabeth.[/column] [column][/column] [/columns_row]
[columns_row width=”half”] [column][/column] [column]Aravis are from Annecy, eastern France. Near the border, well close to the mountains. It’s usually cold in that neck of the woods. Aravis are a band, with Philippe Roche on the vocals, Benjamin Fournier-Bidoz and Arnaud Astruc. Three guys with a bright future. They’ve dropped their first EP “Liberty is Your Choice’ a little over 4 days ago. And it’s a winner. They have also entered the Inrocks Lab competition and most likely will do pretty well. “Cloud” is our favorite so far. But the rest of tracklist is worth a listen too. Spin it pronto…[/column] [/columns_row] [accordion] [item title=”Got a track to share ?”][contact-form-7 404 "Not Found"][/item] [/accordion]
