Aside from, hopefully, featuring great songs, we feel like in 2010 we’ve got to step our game up and be on top of the latest releases. What is there to look up to this January? You’ve come to the right place. Here are a couple of new releases we are looking for.

flying-lotus
Flying Lotus is all about exploring the experimental possibilities of other genres. He released a couple of tracks a couple of months back giving Lil Wayne some glitches and dreamy synthesized melodies converting the track into a surreal experience. He’s a well involved artist that produces his own music and always stays current remixing new songs. If you do not know a thing about this guy, listen to a couple of his previous work below. Massage situation came out in 2007 in his Reset EP; Rickshaw is the 7th track in L.A. EP 1 X 3 from 2008; and the last goodie is a remix from another experimental/electronic DJ Nosaj Thing.

ok-go-of-teh-blue-colour-of-the-sky-2010

The much anticipated OK GO album is dropping next week! I remember discovering them in 2007 thanks the “Here It Goes Again” music video that completely won the internet over. While we wait for Of The Blue Colour Of The Sky, here is a song from the official Soundtrack 90210 released back in October 2009.

OK GO – I Want You So Bad I Can’t Breathe

Vampire-Weekend-Contra-295x300

Contra is the second album by American indie rock band Vampire Weekend. The release of the album is, according to the band’s website, planned to be January 11, 2010 in the UK, and January 12 in the U.S. Just as their eponymous debut album, Contra is being released on XL Recordings. “Horchata” was released as a free download on October 5, 2009 on the band’s website. I’ve also attached a very tropical tune from Toy Selectah Mex More.

delphic-acolyte-2010

Mancunian Band Delphic will be releasing ‘Acolyte’ on January 11th. Its been reported that the BBC considers it to be one of the big break out bands of 2010. We’ll have to see how it all pans out this year but these guys have definitely become one of our favorites. And a little bonus remix from French DJ 835
