[NEW] Ellie Goulding – Bittersweet (Prod. by Skrillex)

As if Ellie Goulding‘s recent album Halcyon wasn’t excellent enough to hold us over for the rest of the year, the English singer is back with a new track called “Bittersweet”. The song is produced by dubstep heavyweight and former boyfriend, Skrillex, making its title oddly appropriate given the couple’s split not too long ago. Despite Skrillex’s touch though, it’s a chill and mellow tune, filled with far more instances of aching vulnerability than sick wobbles.

Look for “Bittersweet” on the forthcoming Breaking Dawn Part 2 soundtrack.

[Electronica] Humans – Possession

Colorful and contagious, “Possession” is the track to loop when you need a good jump-start this afternoon. The Vancouver-based duo Humans, who have opened for acts like Grimes and Porter Robinson, marry the uppity beats and bright synths of electronica with such solid pop arrangements. Their atmospheric sound, coupled with random quirky bits here and there, call to mind a more bubbly, straightforward version of Animal Collective or Yeasayer. “Possession” is like candy and should be gobbled up as such. Enjoy.

“Possession” is off their album, Traps, out now via Hybridity.

[Dubstep] Krewella – Alive (Pegboard Nerds Remix)

Here at TMN it’s an understatement to say that we are huge supporters of Krewella. Yesterday UKF featured one of the latest remixes of their hit track “Alive” by Pegboard Nerds and it is absolutely massive! The remix begins by preserving the alluring vocals of Yasmine and Jahan overlaid harmonious piano melodies but then well… I guess you could say the drop happens. Shifting the tempo the remix instantly transforms into an aggressive dubstep banger. This is an absolute must download! Turn up your speakers and enjoy.

Pegboard Nerds remix is set to release as one of the selections from Krewella’s forthcoming Play Harder Remix EP set to drop later this year.

[Live Review] Lucius and Milo Greene – Bowery Ballroom, NYC


(Milo Greene)

The last time I was at Bowery Ballroom was for an incredible Of Monsters and Men concert. It was such a treat and didn’t think anything could top the awesomeness; I was wrong. A few Thursdays ago, I was at Bowery once again to see Lucius and Milo Greene.

LUCIUS

Lucius
Genevieve

Brooklyn based band, Lucius, can be no better described than an ensemble of infectious rhythms, insane percussions and vocals that will blow your mind. For an opening band, these guys killed it. Holly and Jess walked on stage matching in costume and hollered at the crowd with a “New York, we love you!”. The show started with “Don’t Just Sit There”; breezy vocals, beautifully synched harmonies and acoustic guitar got the crowd hypnotized. After that, they played their hit “Turn It Around,” which got everyone dancing, hands up in the air punching along with the perfectly placed drum beats. It was funky and energetic from beginning to end. Between songs Jess and Holly told the crowd how happy they were to be back in their hometown, cracking jokes and just being naturally adorable. Their set ended with “Genevieve,” which is just a powerhouse of craziness; the perfect way to end the show. The audience was left heavily breathing, with sweaty foreheads, thankful for what we had just experienced. Check out Lucius’ EP on iTunes and prepare for 13 minutes of just purely danceable, non regrettable music.

Dont You Give Up On Me

With a tough act to follow, I was more than ready for Milo Greene to walk on stage and blow my mind. So they did. I bet by now all of you have listened to one of their songs, most likely being “1957” which just exploded on the web ever since it was released.  A certain someone from Twitter once described their sound as “with ethereal wisps of guitar, and drums and vocals, that are both calming and a call to action, Milo Greene both soothes and invigorates the soul”. Invigorate they did, my friend. They walked onto the stage greeting the enthralled crowd. I start fangirling just over the fact that Robbie Arnett is standing less than five feet from me, but that’s not important at all actually. They first played “Orpheus,” warming up the crowd with the warm feeling we feel when listening to Milo. The real first song they played was their very emotional “Don’t You Give Up On Me”. The crowd becomes comfortable with the band and slowly begins humming along with Marlana’s perfectly controlled vocals. The band continued their set with songs from their EP including “Autumn Tree”, “Silent Way”, “Take A Step” and others. And yes, they indeed perform a cover song. After “Silent Way”, Graham Fink asks the crowd if they could play “Zonk” by Wilco. The crowd responded with absolute pure happiness getting their video recorders ready. It was a great performance, and brought Milo Greene outside of their comfort zone making the band and audience vulnerable.

Lana Del Rey – Bel Air (Video)

bel_air_lana_del_rey

Next week, America’s somber songstress Lana Del Rey releases Born To Die – The Paradise Edition. The double album is packaged with goodies like video games, and eight new songs like “Ride” and “Blue Velvet”. In anticipation of that, the always striking and morose LDR dropped a foggy, mystical music video for her track “Bel Air”. Included in the information for the video, is a line: “i lost my reputation, i forgot my truth. But i have my beauty and i have my youth,” which is attributed to “TROPICO the film, coming next year”. What does this mean? We’ll have to wait and see. In the meantime, hit “play” and lose yourself in billows of green and blue smoke.
