I’ve been writing and deleting stuff for the last half and hour and I’m still struggling to find the exact words which describe the combination between Astralia's music and their new music video. The interplay between the cinematic epicness of their track “You Are Here” and the selection of beautiful images deserves applause.
The one thing I realized after watching this video over and over again is that there’s nothing more beautiful than what nature has created. No cars, buildings, neon signs… there’s absolutely nothing which can top what mother Earth has created. It’s beautiful just like the music of these Catalan guys!
Early Monday’s mist is Tuesday’s heavy rain although I can see the first sun rays making their way though the grey clouds. I had an idea of playing something similar to my last post but as soon as I opened soundcloud there was a change in the plan.
I have never listened to Hundred Waters before but judging by “Cavity” I should be as excited as the first time I heard Purity Ring. I am getting their album right after I am done with this post.
About the track, “Cavity” is this bliss made out of folk and electronic elements plus some pretty amazing vocals. The part between 2:10 and 2:26 is just pure ecstasy as the gradual build-up of suspense will definitely surprise you. To make things even better there is a video to the song which was recorded in early March. You can watch it here.

What is the definition of a good song? How about the following comment : “I’m not much of an indie rock person, but this is really good!” Now replace indie rock with any other genre and there you go. I thought exactly the same thing when I first listened to “Breaking up my Bones”. Very catchy, upbeat track - electronic/indie mix; what a perfectly executed recipe for a successful song.
Vinyl Theatre are a relatively new band. Chris, Keegan, Josh and Nick started this project last year and have been steadily gaining momentum since then. “Breaking up my Bones” was uploaded a month ago on SoundCloud and it has close to 100 000 plays! Surprisingly the band is unsigned. If you like this track, feel free to share it so we can help these talented guys out.

A week or two ago we found ourselves chatting to the Jezabels in Berlin about their new record The Brink, their insatiable appetite for touring and newly-found interest inediting music videos. Check our interview with the Australian band below.
Despite this is not a particularly new tune, I thought I should share it with you as I consider Dauwd as one of Ghostly's most creative artists (in my humble opinion). You will find the Wales-raised producer experimenting with anything from guitar to drums and he falls in the category of multi-instrumentalists you just have to admire.
Focusing on the interplay of multi-layered synths and typical two-step beats, “Whats There” is one of those tracks which make me lose track of time… if you know what I mean?
