Cash + David

New Music is brought to you weekly by Deadly Music!, which covers mostly indie/alternative music as well as electronica, ambient/modern classical, pop and anything really, really good. Most tracks are available on a Soundcloud playlist, some of them on a Spotify playlist....both of which are embedded at the end of this post.

 

Cash + David: “Bones”

English electro pop duo Cash + David released three outstanding tracks last year, the best of which was “Bones” (above) which came with a quite mesmerising performance-based video.

They have described their music as like “singing Like A Virgin in a desert karaoke booth, with Sleigh Bells on percussion and M83 on guitars”.

Just added to Soundcloud last week is the EP Triptych which handily includes “Bones” and the other two previous tracks “Funn” and “Pulse” along with a remix of each track.

Peter Broderick: “The Reconnection”

Peter-broderick-colours-of-the-nightFollowing from the release last October of EP Colours of the Night, Peter Broderick will release a new album with the same title in April.

Known for working on piano solos, folktronica, experimental folk, pop, soundtracks and lots in between, one thing’s for certain with Broderick – you’re never sure what you’re going to get and true to form the first release from the album “The Reconnection” is a sweet 60s-inspired sing along and without the closest he has come to pop.

Colours of the Night is out on April 27th on Bella Union

Josef Salvat Is A Bisexual 'Hustler' Playing A Dangerous Game With Love: WATCH

Jose

In the entrancing music video for singer-songwriter Josef Salvat's single "Hustler," the Australian-born but London-based artist takes his viewers down a dark road as he searches for love.

The video, directed by Casper Balslev, is as eerie as it is opulent. Salvat's journey begins, as many a hero's journey does, with advice from a wise old man who declares, "The world is shit without love; you need love in this world." It is this declaration which sets the action of the video into motion. As Salvat searches for love, he is tempted by both male and female flesh, finding each as alluring and intoxicating as the other. That the male object of his desire bears an uncanny resemblance to Salvat only serves to further underscore the allegorical and mythic tone of the world in which Salvat lays his scene.

Watch the video for yourself, AFTER THE JUMP...

Adam Lambert Teases Followers With Instagram Snippet of New Single 'Ghost Town' - LISTEN

Screen Shot 2015-03-23 at 11.33.30 AM

Adam Lambert debuted a snippet of his new single "Ghost Town" from his upcoming third album The Original High, due out later this year, on his Instagram today. Lambert revealed to Billboard that the house-style track will arrive on April 21 and that his new album will be his first with Warner Bros. Records. Lambert spoke about his album with Billboard in January stating that the album is a surprising new direction for him.

Said Lambert:

"I think people are going to be really surprised. The album feels like a new era for me - emotionally, lyrically, sonically. It feels fresh, it feels new. It's still me. It's still stuff that fans know and love but it's a new chapter 100 percent."

Producers Max Martin and Shellback are executive producers behind The Original High. Lambert's sophomore album Trespassing topped the Billboard 200 albums chart in 2012, but Lambert later split from RCA Records and toured the world with Queen.

The OXD Mirror: New tracks by Monarchy, Du Tonc, Goldroom, The Carry Nation, and more

Oxd2

BY OCCUPY THE DISCO / RU BHATT 

Regular readers of this column know that Occupy The Disco was conceived at a Monarchy concert way back in 2011. We convinced our friends to come check out this band that they had never heard of but we were positive they'd enjoy nonetheless. After amassing a sizable crowd, we recognized that our friends, and the young gay community in general, were open to experience nightlife sounds beyond the Katy Perry/Rihanna/Britney variety, and Occupy the Disco was born. Since then, Monarchy has held a special place in our hearts as we patiently awaited a follow up LP to their phenomenal debut album, Around the Sun

The UK-based duo, comprised of Andrew Armstrong and Ra Black originally released 'Black Widow' on their Almost Human EP late last year and have now included the track as part of the band's full length album, Abnocto. To celebrate the album's release they debuted a brand new video that features album guest star Dita Von Teese (who collaborates with them on 'Disintegration,' another album track). The song includes all the elements I love about Monarchy: poignant lyrics, sung in beautiful falsettos by Black, brought to epic proportions by Armstrong's cosmic production. Abnocto released last week, thanks in part to a pledge campaign that funded the project. Read more about the project in an interview with Armstrong, where he also discusses coming out publicly late last year.

Marc Almond: “Scar”

 

One of the most consistent and original artists for well over 30 years now, Marc Almond released new album The Velvet Trail last week.

 

After hinting that his 2010 album Varieté would be his last to feature his own new material, producer and songwriter Chris Braide convinced Almond to make “the ultimate Marc Almond” album.

 

In equal measures melodramatic and dark, “some of the songs have a more personal melancholy, reflective and evocative, like the title track "The Velvet Trail," a song about memories, nostalgia, childhood and death…Chris wanted to create his ultimate Marc Almond record, electric, lush, emotional, dark and sexy and I felt inspired by his tunes and production to deliver just that”.

 

Presented in three acts, each preceded by a short instrumental piece, The Velvet Trail is imbued with incredible depth by Almond’s inimitable vocals.
