Turtle Giant – All Hidden Places EP (TMN Exclusive Stream)

If you didn’t already know, we are fans of Turtle Giant. Last month we premiered their fun official video for “We Were Kids” and just a few weeks ago we posted the epic opening track “Germany I & II“. This trio has come a long way since their formation in 2009; after leaving their homeland of Brazil, they settled in Barcelona, touring the area for most of 2011. And just this year, they moved out to Macau. The year 2012 also marks the official release of their All Hidden Places EP, which we are proudly streaming below.

Though the EP falls under the indie rock category, it borrows from all corners, with bits of surf, psychedelic and classic rock sprinkled in different spots. Its five tracks are well-layered and full of undeniably catchy melodies, each leading you down a path of various moods and sonic atmospheres. But really, the best part of All Hidden Places is its flawless ability to have such valiant built up moments where the music literally sends out spine-tingling sensations as it launches into a beautiful raucous. It’s emotional and hypnotic, raw and tender, and it rips into you before you even know it.

Ellie Goulding – Anything Could Happen (Submerse Remix)

In our continuing love for anything Ellie Goulding, here is an icy chilled new remix by Submerse. The lead single “Anything Could Happen” from her upcoming second studio album, Halcyon, is submerged in a haze of opaque and soft melodies that by contrast only highlights the beautiful vocals of the young and talented English singer.

[Hip-Hop] iSH – Demons (THR3MIX) Feat. e-dubble

If any indie release of the last year was primed for a rap remix, it was Sleigh Bells‘ “Demons.” With blaring drums, explosive guitar riffs, and fervent hollering throughout, it would take a powerful emcee to match the feverish intensity of the original track. Well, we think we’ve finally found a good candidate on our hands in Toronto’s own, iSH. Opting to go with the slightly more subtle Diplo remix of the song, iSH and Philly’s e-dubble manage to complete the tough task of absolutely tearing this beat to shreds. Plus, any time you can talk trash about your wookie is truly a win in my book.

This release is the just the first in an excellent series of “THR3MIXES” by iSH.  Catch the full set below, along with some free download links.

[Indie Rock] Paper Lions – At Long Creek

We now have two reasons to enjoy Prince Edward Island. The first being the epic set of novels and subsequent made-for-tv movies, Anne of Green Gables, and the second being the indie rock band, Paper Lions. Don’t act like you’ve never heard of the former in that sentence. We know you have. While we are totally kidding about Anne of Green Gables, we are dead serious about Paper Lions. This Canadian 4-piece has somehow slipped underneath our radar until now, but we’re locked onto them from this point on.

It’s a rare feat when a band can put out a poppy sound that’s both intricate, and easy to listen to at the same time. There’s tons of artists out there that try to do this, but few have the wherewithal to pull it off. Paper Lions is a harmonious blend of rhythmic guitar, soft finger picking, playful piano, delicate harmonies, fluttering falsettos, and a lead singer that has a perfectly inviting voice for this rock outfit. While their sound can be poppy at times, it can also be soulful, deep, and thought provoking. This show of musical range is another reason why we felt we needed to share the whole EP with you.

Below is a selection of tracks that we think sums up their sound well. While we would love to post all six tracks from this recently released EP, we do realize that you have an internet attention span, and lose interest quickly. So we’ve picked the best of the best (or so we think). Once you’re done loving these tunes, head over to their facebook page for a free download of “At Long Creek”.
