Debut EP: Pale – The Comeback (2014/09/08) [Full EP Stream + Free Download]

17 Sep

:: Really not getting enough of these four tracks. Download & enjoy!

I couldn’t find out much about Pale, except that the electropop duo is hailing from London and they’re giving away their music for free. Only thing they ask in return is to support them by sharing their music and visiting their shows. A fair deal, if you ask me. Ten months ago, Pale released their latest track Rundown, which is now followed-up by The Comeback, a new four-track EP.

The Comeback EP was self-released digitally on September 08, 2014. Listen to the entire EP above. You can download all four tracks from Pale’s Soundcloud, only thing you have to do is downloading them separately.

Pale are playing London’s Shacklewell Arms on October 08.

Debut Album: Vance Joy – Dream Your Life Away (2014/09/15) / New Single ‘First Time’ [Official Video]

16 Sep

:: Great debut album by an incredibly talented young man. Catch him live, it’s so worth it!


God Loves You When You’re Dancing, last year’s debut EP of Melbourne-based singer/songwriter James Keogh better known by his stage name Vance Joy, gets me smiling now matter what mood I’m in, and ever since I saw Vance Joy playing a fantastic (but very short) live set earlier this year, I’m a big fan of his music. So naturally it gets me really excited that his debut album Dream Your Life Away, announced about two months ago, is finally available now.

Dream Your Life Away was released in Australia/New Zealand on September 05, 2014 via Atlantic Recording Co./WEA International. North America saw release on September 09, UK/Europe on September 15. The album is available as download, CD and 12″ vinyl LP. You can buy digitally from iTunes or order your physical copy of Dream Your Life Away from Amazon.

The thirteen album tracks are entirely written and composed by Vance Joy. Dream Your Life Away was recorded in the United States with Foo Fighters and Lumineers producer Ryan Hadlock.

First Time is the second single off of Vance Joy’s debut. The song comes with an official video directed by Sing J. Lee for Chief Productions, watch/listen above. Mess Is Mine was the first single taken from Dream Your Life Away. The song comes with a wonderful music video written & directed by Luci Schroder and produced by Emma Haarburger. Vance Joy is currently touring Europe (September/October) and he will be playing an extensive string of North American shows in October/November. 9 Australian shows are scheduled for March 2015, check out the upcoming dates below.

New Single: Zola Blood – Meridian (2014/08/22) / Applescal Remix [Free Download]

15 Sep

:: Absolutely wonderful.


Zola Blood are Matt [vocals/guitar], Ed [synth], Sam [drums] and Rob [guitar] from Hackney, London. With their first song Grace, the synth-pop foursome quickly climbed high up the Hype Machine charts. Watch the official video for the song here if you wanna find out why.

Their fabulous new single Meridian was unveiled via Soundcloud on August 22, 2014,  listen to it above.

In a recent exclusive interview with The Music Ninja, Zola Blood talked their band history and influences: “Zola Blood was born in October last year, after a few months sharing dodgy iPhone recordings between the four of us. We found a little box studio out in Hackney Wick and have been writing, recording and procrastinating out there ever since.” Read the entire feature here.

Berlin-based producer Applescal did a really great remix of Meridian which you can download for free from Soundcloud.
