[Alternative] Mt. Joy – Silver Lining

Mt. Joy
Silver Lining

Mt. Joy is the sort of band that makes music you can ride out into the proverbial sunset to. After a series of stellar singles, “Silver Lining” continues the band’s unflinching devotion to delving into complex topics, which is immediately felt in their blunt and to-the-point lyrics that seamlessly pair with their folksy instrumentation. While “Sheep” proved that Mt. Joy isn’t here to simply hit the stage and spout overused platitudes, “Silver Lining” finds the band exhibiting a more contemplative stance that reflects on finding lasting joy throughout a haze of vices. Even with this shift in tone from their previous single, Mt. Joy’s ability to craft instantly catchy choruses carries over to this newest tune as well, and they’ve got yet another winner on their hands. If “Silver Lining” is the standard set for a potential Mt. Joy album, we’re all in for quite a treat.

Hot Chip DJ Mix September 2017 [TMN Premiere]

Hot Chip
HOT CHIP DJ MIX SEPTEMBER 2017
Perhaps one of the most iconic live electronic outfits operating in any capacity of the music world today, London bred synth-pop superstars Hot Chip, have long been a shiny apple in both this writer’s, and TMN’s eyes (or ears for that matter). In advance of a looming November U.S. DJ tour, two of the Hot Chip’s gangs most formidable members, Joe Goddard & Felix Martin, have put together a healthy amount of tunes to tune your cochlear cavities in advance of what will no doubt be a bevy of eclectic sets from the pair. Their latest mix flirts with slices of R&B, reggaeton, soul, synth-pop, jazz and indie including a handful of effective groovers and obscure tracks from the likes of Addison Groove, Roman Flugel, and Omar S ft. Nite Jewel, all through the scope of a dancefloor, and they’ve come up aces with another worthy addition to their mix catalog. The tracklist for Hot Chip’s latest DJ mix can be found below, as well as all dates dotting their forthcoming U.S. tour. For our stateside friends with a pension for uniquely programmed, genre jumping dance parties, don’t miss Felix & Joe’s DJ iteration of the group coming in November.

[Alternative] – Exhibitionist – Motionless

Exhibitionist
Motionless

It goes without saying, but Future Classic is at it again with identifying promising artists, and the one of the latest to release new material with them is Exhibitionist, the solo project of Kirsty Tickle. Following up the release of “Hands” seven month prior, Exhibitionist takes to a seductively syncopated groove on “Motionless” that traverses waves of modulated synths, a simple yet defiant drum pattern, and expressive vocals that seamlessly drift alongside every element of the song. The palpable sense of warmth throughout the tune provides an intangible comfort that lasts long after the final minutes, and with the fall season upon us, at least in some places, Exhibitionist has crafted an essential soundtrack to the more contemplative times ahead that accompany an evening indoors on a cold and (hopefully) snowy day. We’re certainly eager for more from Exhibitionist, and here’s to hoping we’ll be hearing something fresh sooner than later.
