SXSW Artist: Jack Garratt / The Love You’re Given

I’m trying to get through the lists of artists attending SXSW and I’m pretty sure it’s near to1452302_10152899693504631_5526026073946725233_n impossible. Help a sister out!
Alright, so digging through this morning, I found out that Jack Garrett will be out of London and playing in Austin for the conference. I’ll find myself there, for sure. Because I’m digging him and I suspect there’ll be some good head-nodding-while-drinking situation happening here. He’s on Facebook.

Killing it! AWOLNATION / Hollow Moon (Bad Wolf)

Of course you know AWOLNATION. Errrrybody does after Sail became such a beast of a 10945599_10152811029108692_3834805391851462128_nradio song. At any rate, I was sort of turned off by hearing more because, you know, once something becomes too available and too overplayed it turns me off. But, I pressed play on this sucker and it’s a jam for sure. For sure. I dig it. I can hardly wait for the radio to kill it to death by overplaying it (RIP song).

This…Rules: The Avener / Fade Out Lines

Oh, hot damn. I went through a few months at the close at last year where I was in a 1506024_1564502560431555_1326164851728575765_nmusical slump dump. I wasn’t feeling inspired to hear new music, I was busy and music exploration seemed like something else to add to my long list of things to cross of, so I stuck with my tried and true playlists and thus, didn’t blog much.

Anyway, call it the new year excitement or just that no matter which direction I turn, I’m falling all over really killer music. And, loving it, of course.

The Avener is a French DJ who knows how to blend up some really sexy, danceable sounds. His first album hits the interwebs and shelves on the 19th. Radness. Check him out on Facebook to keep up with his magic.

Enjoy this ish!

Ghostpoet / Off Peak Dreams

It’s been a long minute since Ghostpoet’s last album, ‘Some Say I So I Say Light’ but today ghotstpoet_press_2013_1200x800_01I hear he’s putting out a new album, ‘Shedding Skin’, later this year. In the meantime, this track is here for your listening pleasure. Set to be released as a single in February, you get a first listen on the interwebs. After hearing this song a few times, I’m hungry for the rest. Follow Ghostpoet on FB.

So, so good: Bilderbuch / Spliff

Bilderbuch is on my latest playlist for good vibes. From Austria, with cool, singing in 10404856_10152391435588414_7380721731247954790_nGerman and apparently putting on hella cool live shows, this band is up to some good stuff for 2015. They’re playing Eurosonic in January – catch them if you can. Otherwise, check out their FB for updates and get ready to sway and fist pump to this song.
