It's been some time since I last hear that New Order song. It's a classic, I love it to bits. New Order is yet another band that I have to check out properly as well as Flying Lotus. I have considered myself a fan of these two bands but never listened to a full album or something. I really need to get me some new music.
Here are two tracks I have discovered recently:
Just discovered this one. The first half of the song really appealed to me (great sub bass) but I guess the rest isn't bad either.
This track was made on a handheld console, Nintendo DSi. This guy (the uploader of the video) makes some wicked tracks with that. This tune reminds me of 808 State and old school techno\house in general. I instantly fell in love with it when the bassline kicked in at about 1:15.

This is magic from Goldfrapp. I first hear this in the BBC animated dark show Monkey Dust. So glad I found out who it was when I Shazamed it in a pub in Galway...
Something more upbeat...heard this on an Irish language radio sation that plays really obscure and wonderful alternative music. This is a really catchy, post punk/Electronic track sung in French from a Belgian group. Have a listen, it's amazing....

|the BBC animated dark show Monkey Dust.|
After seeing this post I went on a Goldfrapp binge, as you know, I then went on to watch Monkey Dust. Completely forgot about that masterpiece of insanity.
I heard these ladies quite some time ago. Again, they performed vocals on a track for someone else. In this case, Passion Pit's "It's Not My Fault I'm Happy". Their version just blew my mind because of how simple yet beautifully layered it is. Compared to the original, I feel it's much darker and I love that contrast between the darkness and their bright, gentle voices. Absolutely magical.
As I mentioned above, I went on a huge Goldfrapp binge the other night. I'm ashamed to say that I'd kind of forgotten about them but, in doing so, it made listening to them just as incredible as it used to be. I ended up watching a lot of their live stuff and I really don't think I've seen such professionalism and perfection like that from a band since Pink Floyd took the stage. I mean, I know there are many bands who are exceptional when playing live, but there's something mystifying about Goldfrapp's performances that really digs deep and captures you from the inside.

The Black Keys are certainly a delightful source of diversity within modern popular music. Always loved the album Brothers.
Death Cab has been number one on my playlists for quite a while now. Despite the depressing sadness in their music, there's always a tiny bit of hope hid in the sadness which keeps me going back.
A positive surprise among the angst of The Man on The Moon's, this song holds with it a great life advice - in the end, they'll judge me anyway, so whatever.

Both tracks are amazing, I guarentee it

Keep in mind these are all progressive, so they take a while to start up.
Lets start with a relaxing soulful track:
Amazing beat and mysterious sound in this next one:
Bashmore has a knack for creating great basslines and interesting sounds to a good beat:

Normally, Id bang on about why I love each song, what they mean to me, how I found them, blah bloody blah. This time I'm just going to say this; it's been a while since music has hit me as hard as this band has. There's just something about it all that tears me apart. Enjoy them, folks.

Not been exploring music as much as I'd like to recently, lots of work to be done for university.
Be patient with the intro on this one.

was lucky enough to see this girl at boiler room last week. her stuff is haunting.
if you can't get into it, grab your headphones and play it during a midnight walk.

There's something about them that makes them incredibly addictive.
This is one I discovered a few moments ago and just had to share it.
The energy is seriously intense.

I've been listening to a sh*t ton of Alt-J recently. Fantastic album, can't go wrong with Fitzpleasure, Something Good, Breezeblocks etc. Seriously, check them out if you haven't already.
Would be surprised if Flume hasn't already been posted in here. But this Aussie guy recently released an album that I've had on p high rotation. Other notables include On Top and Holdin On. Worth a look.
Chick is like 17, p promising artist. Intro reminds me of Pumped Up Kicks.

Also throwing Royksopp here for the laugh...love this video..girl is so foxy I'd eat a sh*t out of her arse.

@ Brad: I seriously enjoyed those tracks you posted, especially the Tonique and the Specimen Sounds ones. Don't suppose you could point me in the direction of more stuff like that? Really great choices, man.
I may have posted this before, but it's that good it deserves a mention. Absolutely f*cking intense session.
Here's a gorgeous piece by a band I discovered thanks to the teaser trailer for Cyberpunk. Game trailers are getting really adventurous with the songs they're picking. I love it.
And finally, just because it's Peter Green. If you set the worlds finest chocolate on the smoothest sheet of marble whilst smoking a cuban and sipping a fine scotch, you still wouldn't come anywhere near the smoothness of this song.
Take it easy, fellas.

Was I missed?
I'm going to skip all the @ replies for the moment just to see if I still remember how to do this thing.
Lets kick in the door a bit.
If you cup your hand to my ear like a seashell this is what you'll hear.

That's awesome, man.
I know we always talked about doing that in the past so thanks for taking the initiative on that.
@Phillies: Welcome. Love Clams Casino, if you haven't listened to more by them def give them a look up.
@Benzo: Bringin' it back to the House it would seem.
@Gig: I've been listening to a surprising amount of classic rock this year just for the switch up so thanks for dusting off that Peter Green track, very nice.
@Brad: Good tracks as always, really enjoyed that Wildcat! x2.
@Floyd: I always say that Beastie track is as good as anything off of STP's better known Purple. Timeless and haunting.
@Sauron: You always have a solid talent for tracking what's coming around the bend my friend. That Flume track made me want to slide across the floor in reverse.
@ludi911: Thanks for sharing.
@Tyler: Humorously my wife just went and saw a Houston based 80's cover band by that same name.
@Harley: Haven't seen you around since the PGC days, stick around you've been noticed.
Really solid, contemporary Neo Soul.
Great cover, great remix - Went through quite a few before settling on this one.
