Today’s Tune: ‘Taking Chances’ by Sharon Van Etten

Track: ‘Taking Chances’
Artist: Sharon Van Etten
Album: Are We There
Release: 26 May 2014 (UK) & 27 May 2014 (US) via Jagjaguwar

What they say:  The lead single from… ‘Are We There’ is made up of tiny things: a silvery, clipped guitar that feels like condensed from a post-punk record, a hip-bump of a drum beat, and bits of synth that swarm like bacteria populating on a microscope slide. The music feels like it’s creeping into an unlit kitchen at 4 a.m., but when [Sharon] Van Etten’s voice glides across the surface, all the lights flip on at once. – Jayson Greene, Pitchfork.com


Today’s Tune: ‘Pressure’ by My Brightest Diamond

Track: ‘Pressure’
Artist: My Brightest Diamond
Album: This Is My Hand
Release: 16 September 2014 via Asthmatic Kitty Records

What we say: ‘Pressure’ is a new release from singer-songwriter and multi-instrumentalist Shara Worden’s side project, My Brightest Diamond. The marching snare drum beat and wind orchestrations perfectly fit Worden’s commanding vocals in this infectious and upbeat track.

Today’s Tune: ‘Lipstick’ by Pool

David Stoltzenberg, Daniel Husten and Nils Hansen make up Hamburg’s indie-disco-funk sensation Pool. The band, who have been making music together since they were 14, have release their latest track ‘Lipstick,’ which features an infectious hook, a pretty awesome riff and plenty of auto-tune.

Keep an eye out for a new album/EP from Pool via 2DIY4 in the future.
