Christian Löffler -Like Water ( ft. Mohna)

I remember a good few years ago going to a gig in London on my own for the first time. Before I set off I was subtly apprehensive about going alone, especially after just moving to this big scary new city. The gig in question was Kiasmos in Brixton – on the night they were supported by none other than a Löffler live set. I had never heard of the German until then, but my word the music was absolutely blissful.

Since then, I have been keeping an eye on his success since and even had the privilege of seeing him again last year. His little collaborations with Mohna were lovely on his debut offering and again on his 2016 ‘Mare’ album and I’m very glad to hear his new single features her again. The two in combination work like cheese and wine, this is a great little tune to get Löffler’s year rolling.

Nick Mulvey – Moment of Surrender

69193438-9DD8-4A5D-BD3D-26F89F16D96A

Following on from the highly impressive ‘Dancing for the Answers’ EP, released the back end of 2018, Mulvey returns for his first foray for 2019. ‘Moment of Surrender’ is the tune and it is a good one at that. His voice is always fairly on point throughout his work and this is no exception. The mellow acoustic percussion coupled with the dreamy highly pitched almost angelic chords, this tune tickles the ear. A brilliant songwriter, the man can do near nothing wrong in my book. Top Lad.

Check out ‘Moment of Surrender’ below.

Throwback : Arctic Monkeys – My Propeller

A little reminiscing here taken from The Arctic Monkey’s 2009 third studio album ‘Humbug’. The opening track ‘My Propeller’ is the tune in focus, and what a tune it was. After the success of their opening two albums it was difficult to see how the band could keep the Sound fresh. ‘My propeller’ opened Humbug and blew me away at the time. Such a mellow, chilled and calculated song, no big crescendos or complications, just a stellar track. Heard it recently and just figured I’d shtick it up here, since they have a new album about.

 

Brién – Luv Getter

A little sampling masterclass here from Belfast’s ‘Brién’. This tune is such an uplifting one with all those chopped vocals paired with the subtle baseline. A real gem from this upcoming young NI musician. He joins a stellar cast of Belfast born producers such as Bicep, Hammer, Swoose, who have been killing it in recent times. Keep up the work chief. Super.
