LA-based songwriter Javier Dunn picked up the guitar at the age of 10, and since then he’s never looked back. He’s worked with Sara Bareilles, and has put out several EPs since his debut in 2006. One of our favourite tracks from Dunn is this gorgeous acoustic cover of Scandinavian pop princess Robyn’s ‘Call Your Girlfriend’. Dunn has re-worked the lyrics to reflect a male perspective, and his simple guitar accompaniment makes an for incredibly emotional creation. Javier is currently recording another album, so stay tuned for more news.
Irish synth-poppers Two Door Cinema Club dropped their latest record ‘Beacon’ a mere fortnight ago, and BeatauCue have already dropped a stunning remix of ‘Sleep Alone’. The track is an ode to drug-induced dreams, and the French duo’s production on this reworking recreates that same delirious sensation with some slightly tropical synths and ace beats. This version of ‘Sleep Alone’ is the perfect climactic end to a wild night out, and its relentlessly upbeat sound should leave you with a massive grin plastered on your face.

If you feel like you’ve been missing out on some brilliantly catchy indie-rock of late, then look no further. The jaunty ‘Bullet In A Gun’ is a creation of Irish rockers Delorentos, and like most of the band’s earlier work, relies heavily on powerful guitar riffs and infectious choruses that could fill the largest stadium on earth. If you like your indie big, loud and easy to dance to, then ‘Bullet In A Gun’ is the track for you. This song is featured on Delorentos’ third record ‘Little Sparks’, out now.
After sharing the beautiful “Laura,” Natasha Khan AKA Bat for Lashes gives us yet another taste of her upcoming album, The Haunted Man. An enchanting song, “Marilyn” especially shines during the chorus, where Khan’s vocals soar with real power and grace.
The Haunted Man comes out October 23rd via Capitol Records.
A little while back Avicii paired up with Ralph Lauren to produce his own line of denim clothing. Well a few days ago Avicii released this remix of ‘Silhouettes’ to promote the line of clothing. The remix itself is a more relaxed version of the original ‘Silhouettes’ without losing to much. Overall its a solid track as only Avicii could do and it’s available to download of the Ralph Lauren site here (Free for an email).

Seven Lions, is quickly becoming one of the most talked about artists here on TMN, releasing quality remix after remix at lightning speed. His innate ability to transform trance and progressive house anthems into monumental melodic dubstep tunes is on par with some of the biggest names in EDM. This time around, Seven Lions brings his liquid progressive style to Paul van Dyk’s “I Don’t Deserve You” complimenting the original with his signature deep bass and poignant melodies. This rendition, although a shortened radio edit, is one of his lighter remixes, staying true to original maintaining the hypnotic vibes of trance. Give the song a listen and if you missed Seven Lion’s previous remix check it out here. Enjoy!

Make no mistake, autumn is in the air. As summer comes to a close and the sun loses some of his lasting light and warmth, there are those music fans who lean toward mood-matching music. While some cling to that wild-and-free feeling that lingers toward season’s end, colder and darker days encourage some of us to become less energetic and more low-key, introspective. For those of you who can relate to this feeling of winding down, lend a listen to a track called “War Movie” by former Felice Brothers drummer, Simone Felice. His solo project will grab you by the ears, and its story will make you pause and even think for some time, and its mellow mood matches the lyrical meanderings about the war-like elements of life. You owe it to yourself to hear Felice out.
You can hear more from Simone Felice if you check out his earlier material with The Felice Brothers, his current band endeavors with The Duke and The King, or you can follow his new solo work (of which includes “War Movie”) when he releases New York Times: a digital EP set to release October 22nd via Reveal Records.
