Nicky: “Wake Up”

Nicky is a 19-year-old Swedish singer-songwriter.

On his debut track “Wake Up”, much has been made of the fact that the cherubic face just doesn’t match Nicky’s rich, gravelly vocals.

While it’s true that there’s something of a novelty value when he first opens his mouth, once you get over it you’re left with a remarkably crafted acoustic pop track (his first song, written when he was only 15) with the maturity and depth of Leonard Cohen and Tom Waits and the contemporary quirkiness of The Tallest Man On Earth.

A low-key release, “Wake Up” shows great potential and should be huge if it manages to catch the Ed Sheeran youth appeal market.

Trust Fund: “Cut Me Out”

Trust Fund is one-man garage rock act Ellis Jones from Bristol, England.

Until now relegated to small cassette releases on bedroom labels, Ellis has recently signed with Turnstile for the release of his (official) debut album No One’s Coming For Us.

Lead track “Read the Wrappers” will appeal to fans of post punk / garage rock acts like Son Joan, Simple KidDrab and Postcode.

Also recommended for fans of Pixies, Pavement and Of Montreal.

Away

In honor of World AIDS Day today, Brooklyn-based composer Sam Salmond has released a heart-rending music video for his song "Away" inspired by The Ashes Action - the 1992 ACT UP march that culminated in men and women throwing their loved ones' ashes onto the White House lawn to protest the government's neglect of those impacted by the AIDS crisis.

Watch the music video, AFTER THE JUMP...

And in lieu of any commercial gain, Salmond is asking viewers to make a donation to one of the following wonderful AIDS charities: AIDS Healthcare FoundationGay Men’s Health Crisis, or Elton John AIDS Foundation

Get Spoiled This Thanksgiving With SNL's Back Home Ballers: VIDEO

Back Home Ballers

As our friend Dorthy pointed out so long ago, there's no place like home. As the ladies of Saturday Night Live have recently added, being back home is baller. Being waited on hand and foot, inputting insanely complex WiFi passwords, and slouching about the house all day long are surely as much a hallmark of the winter holiday season as any stuffed turkey.

You can add Cameron Diaz and Your Girls to your holiday rap soundtrack in the music video AFTER THE JUMP...

Public Service Broadcasting - 'Gagarin'

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.

Public Service Broadcasting: “Gagarin”

“Gagarin” is the first track taken from Public Service Broadcasting’s upcoming second album The Race For Space.

A brassy, funk-heavy theme track for Yuri Gagarin, the track reveals a new more playful side to the duo.

With a 6-piece brass section and 5-piece string section in tow, “Gagarin” signals a broadening of Public Service Broadcasting’s sound.

Probably one of the grooviest things you’ve seen this year.

tigerthief: “cinnamon luck”

Tigerthief-cinnaomon-lucktigerthief (possibly from Portland, Oregon and all in lowercase) is a new act choosing to use media to add an element of mystery to their music.

Despite requests for more information, there is little known about tigerthief.

They are probably a duo and “cinnamon luck” was “written, recorded, shot, edited, mixed, mastered, and produced in 24 hours using a Sony TC-500A tape machine, a Canon 7D, two human brains, two cinnamon sticks, and one snow day.”

A mesmerizing, trippy track, you’ll love this if you go all misty-eyed at the thought of early Cocteau Twins.  

Also RIYL if you like contemporary downtempo / shoegaze / gloomy pop acts like Hockeysmith and Casket Girls.

Out Singer-Songwriter Jesse Sarvinski 'Won't Let You Get Away' - VIDEO

Untitled-3

In a new music video released late last week, out singer-songwriter Jesse Sarvinski serves up some beefcake with a side of romance. His song, "Won't Let You Get Away," is all about what happens when you realize your "summertime fling" is someone you could love for the rest of your life. And you don't want to let him get away. Sarvinski sings,

"All my friends say / "Boy you found a good one now, don't let him get away." / And I'd search high and low / Just to find someone who could even come close. / I've never been so in love with somebody / You do something to me that I can't explain and / I know I'd be a fool if I just let you get away /So I won't let you get away."

Watch the endearing and alluring video directed and shot by Marc Cartwright, AFTER THE JUMP...
