South Shore Commission – Free Man

Thumpin’ disco from the mid seventies by South Shore Commission, exponents of the matched disco outfit, a fashion trend that is sadly far less popular these days.

Troy Tate – Love is…

A nice little 80s indie tune in the same vein as The Smiths and all those jangly guitar dudes from 30 years back.

Pharrell Williams – Gust of Wind

Pharrell’s album’s out and it’s not too bad at all. Aside from the crappy Daft Punk vocals this is my pick of the bunch – nice chorus and cool little synth string arpeggios make this a sweet little summery ditty. I’m guessing that because it’s featuring Daft Punk means it’ll be a future single?

Stubborn Heart – Two Times A Maybe

I’ve been absolutely loving the Stubborn Heart album since, depressingly late for the party, discovering it last week. It’s an awesome collection of moody electronic R&B but stretches across all sorts of genres. Some of it sounds very similar to Twin Shadow whose Confess album is one of my favourites from recent years. Get on the case with this one immediately.
