Rae Morris: Cold ft Fryars

I’ve had the pleasure of seeing Rae Morris a number of times, she’s adorable. Cold, however, is my favourite track so far, if this is a sign of what to expect from now on I am very excited x

Paolo Nutini: Iron Sky

My flat is sat between two building works at the moment, this song is helping me drown out all the banging (so much hammering!). I can’t wait for the album, everything I’ve heard so far is promising an absolute treat x

Hope & Social: What A Year

I know it’s past Christmas and New Year now, but hey, better late than never… This footage of What a Year looks like the loveliest audience participation experience ever, and it’s a top notch song to boot.

And it wouldn’t be an average blog post if I didn’t mention Dancing Years, so here’s Hope & Social and Dancing Years performing I’ll Do it All Again for Crypt Covers. Smashing x

Mononoke: Alice

I love it when classic children’s books get mentioned in songs, especially when done as beautifully as this Alice in Wonderland delight. Mononoke has created such a gem of a song x

Basia Bulat: It Can’t Be You

I had the absolute pleasure of seeing the lovely Basia Bulat perform live at Bandstand Busking today. She started the set with this gem, It Can’t Be You, and had the whole crowd in the palm of her hand, in fact, the bearded man stood next to me had a hard time reigning in his exclamations of ‘WOW’ (definitely in capital letters) throughout the entire song, he was that impressed. I’d recommend seeing her live in a heartbeat x

Paper Cinema: West

It’s no secret that I think The Paper Cinema are one of the best artistic companies out there at the moment. They’re innovative, creative and oh so so lovely. Combining illustration, cinematic devices and live music, Paper Cinema bring stories to life like no other. And luckily for those of you who haven’t had the chance to see them live (and for those of us who miss them dearly when they’re not touring) Joshua Gaunt of Workshops and Docs has put together a lovely ‘making of’ documentary, as well as filming one of their most recent projects, West. They’re super x

Cat Power: I Found A Reason

If someone had played me this track off the Cat Power Covers record years ago I would have realised how brilliant she is much much sooner.

I Found a Reason is so beautifully played here. I’m clearly going to be listening to her whole backlist the entire weekend.

Don’t you love it when you ‘discover’ someone and instead of having to wait months (maybe years) for new material to be released, you can instead joyously trawl through every album they’re released and fall further in love with their music?! x

Absolutely loving this cracking mashup by Daughter recorded on Zane Lowe’s show this week.

Perth (Bon Iver) vs Ready For The Floor (Hot Chip) – Who’d have thought that would work huh!?

Lorde, Royals

Slick beats from New Zealand songstress Lorde.

My sister downloaded the Lorde EP a few weeks ago, it took me a few listens but I’m whole heartedly into it now. Royals is by far my favourite track, if only for the fact that it refers to a watch as a ‘timepiece’, I’m all over that ironic hipsterness like a rash.

For more of her tunes listen to her soundcloud page. It’s lush.
