[Indie/Electro-Pop] Kasabian – Eez-Eh


In addition to announcing their first new album in three years, British indie-rockers Kasabian have released a brand new single “Eez-Eh.”

Titled 48:13, this is the first album from the band since the release of their 2011 album Velociraptor!, and five years since the release of their breakout album West Ryder Pauper Lunatic Asylum. Premiering on BBC Radio 1 earlier today, “Eez-Eh” is a delightfully upbeat (and uncharacteristic) track from Kasabian that is vastly different from anything the band has previously produced.

“I felt that we had the confidence to be more direct, more honest with this album. I started to strip away layers rather than to just keep adding,” guitarist Sergio Pizzorno said. The guitar melodies are certainly stripped away, with Pizzorno and co. opting for heavy synth leads and pulsing dance beats. 48:13 is out June 9. Take a listen to the track below.

[R&B Beauty] Naomi Pilgrim – House of Dreams

Naomi Pilgrim
House Of Dreams

Well, one of my favorites has done it again.
Naomi Pilgrim released her song ‘House of Dreams’ today, a track off her upcoming EP House of Dreams which is due out in late June of this year. The song is written by Pilgrim, Fredrik Okazaki, and Dante Kinnunen and talks about exactly what the title says; Pilgrim’s personal house of dreams and what they all entails. The lyrics are enchanting, telling of a wonderful world of dreams where everything is ok and how it should be in Pilgrim’s eyes. A place where she can dance free, not have any televisions, and be told she is loved by the person whom she loves. Pilgrim delivers another strong vocal performance, her intoxicating voice riveting over every word. Pilgrim builds a house of dreams with her lyrics and her songs and we can’t wait to hear her new EP this summer.

Ain't No Sunshine (Lido Remix)

Lido is the future and he’s back with yet another anthem. This time remixing the classic “Ain’t No Sunshine” and nailing it on all levels. Bill Withers never saw it coming and neither did we, the only way this could get any better is if he put a FREE download for it. His vocal chops are flawless and he drops some booming synths at all the right times, this one will be on repeat for the rest of my life. Cheers.

[MP3 Playlist] The Chill Dojo #82

chill dojo

Well you may have seen it across every other playlist on the TMN this week, but the release of Cosmo’s Midnight’s ‘Say My Name’ bootleg has been a long time coming for us, so it’s only right that it makes the top of the Chill Dojo too. The Sydney twins spin their signature future sounds over this Destiny’s Child classic, sprinkled with jersey influences and the creative sampling we’ve grown to love from the host of young Australian producers dominating the scene right now. Things only get better as the track progresses though, with those infectious wavy vibes reaching feverish levels in the final minute. ICYMI, the funkmaster GRiZ gifted fans with yet another amazing tune as well, this time electing to dish out dangerously smooth bass and groove to show his constant evolution as an artist. Sax will always be his weapon of choice though, so of course he ices his polished production with a sweet dose for good measure. There was plenty more of this groove circulating the net this week, and GANZ has been a rising name in the bass game lately, causing quite a stir with his trademark “flips” of big name tracks. His latest take on ‘Tell Me’ is another statement proving that he has well and truly arrived as a talent to watch with great attention.

But big name or small name, if we hear a good track we’re going to take notice, and that’s exactly what we have on our hands with Benzamak’s ‘Yoga Pants’. Like its clothing item namesake, we are very glad this song was invented and it will certainly have the ability to bring much happiness to a lot of people. Another perfect compliment to your upcoming summer is this delicious beat from TastyTreat. A seductive heat pulsates from this production at every moment, staking its claim as a powerful addition to any bedroom or party playlist alike. London’s Bobby Tank is another artist who knows how to craft a piece of music that can hold an audience firmly in its trance, and his latest release ‘Undone’ will induce uncontrollable body grooving for the whole five minute ride. At the same time, he’ll be blowing your mind again and again with outrageously good sounds and production elements. As much as there is plenty of talk surrounding the plague of EDM that all follows the same commercial formula, you don’t have to look too hard to find a heap of fresh material floating about, with lesser known artists pushing the envelope and influencing new styles. Just take a listen to these next few features from Grimecraft and ABSRDST and it will be easy to see. There’s been a steady movement of videogame elements and sampling creeping its way into the sounds of 2014, and that’s undoubtedly a good thing when you have music like this as a result. With chill vibes to boot, there will definitely be plenty more of this style featured in playlists to come.

And that’s only the tip of the iceberg when it comes to the talent on show below, so make sure to soak it all in. Peace out.

[NEW] DJ Snake & Lil Jon – Turn Down For What (Remix) (Feat. Juicy J, 2 Chainz & French Montana)

DJ Snake & Lil Jon
Turn Down For What (Remix) (Feat. Juicy J, 2 Chainz & French Montana)

You already know the ninjas here at TMN turn down for nothing, but now thanks to DJ Snake, we’ve been properly acquainted with a few more gentlemen for whom turning down is not an option. After revealing plans for a remix earlier this week via Facebook, we’ve finally got our hands on the tasty banger, featuring the ratchet trio of Juicy J, 2 Chainz and French Montana. If you thought you’d finally heard the last of Lil Jon‘s guttural screaming, you sir (or madam) are sadly mistaken, because this song is destined to be on rotation for the remainder of the summer. So why bother fighting it? Just turn up the speakers to full blast, and repeat after us: “TURN DOWN FOR WHAT?!”

[Indie Pop] The Griswolds – Heart of a Lion EP


Taking on the name of one of America’s favorite theatrical families is a challenge in and of itself. Bearing the name proudly while playing some infectious, indie pop tunes is a whole different animal. Luckily for Sydney based five piece, The Griswolds, they’ve done done just that, offering up an entirely different reason to grin ear to ear when someone says “The Griswolds.”

With uplifting, uptempo guitar-centric tunes, this Aussie outfit has us rocking flip flops, tank tops and Ray Bans, despite the fact that it’s still not warm enough to sport any of that gear. Regardless of which, these cats have a sound that calls on associations of classic acts like The Violent Femmes and new school island rockers like St. Lucia. The choruses are just catchy enough to sing along with, but not overwhelming to the point that you grow tired of them. The guitar work is intricate, yet easy to interpret. The drum work is enticing, creating the urgent need to get up and dance.

As a whole, Heart of a Lion is a four track collection of pop goodness that will gleefully crawl under your skin with ease, making you yearn for sandy beaches, fruity drinks, and a beautiful girl or guy to share it with.

Marvin Gaye
Grapefruit (Larrykoek Remix)

Over the past few years, we’ve seen a surfacing in the popularity of deep house among the masses. With that rising of deep bass hits and pitched down vocals, we’ve heard numerous remixes of one of our favorite Motown artists of all times, Marvin Gaye.

Serving up his spin on a legendary tune, Larrykoek has dialed up a piano centric deep house remix of the 1966 classic, “I Heard it Through the Grapevine.” While maintaining the original appeal through nearly un-altered vocals, this Netherlands based DJ/Producer has something perfect for ramping up your weekend activities, or winding down from them.
