Bat for Lashes – “Skin Song” [New Track]

Listen to Bat for Lashes’ gorgeous contribution to Body Of Songs, the music and science venture that brings together Britain’s most talented musicians and medical experts to create a collection of songs inspired by the organs of the human body.

Guided by medical experts including pathologists, neurologists and stem cell scientists; the artists where given lessons about individual parts of the anatomy and then asked them to create a song based on their chosen organ or body part. Below is “Skin Song,” Natasha Khan’s moving contribution to the project. “The song is from the perspective of an old lady looking back on her life through thoughts of the history in her skin.”

Although, Body Of Songs isn’t an entirely new idea; Bjork explored this subject with Medulla  and somewhat with Biophillia; I find the subject of Biology as an inspiration to create music simply fascinating—lyrically and musically, the results are always emotionally captivating. Take a listen!

Body Of Songs will feature songs by Ghostpoet and Goldie, amongst others. More details in the video below.

Indian Summer – “Shiner” Featuring Ginger & The Ghost

Australian production-duo Indian Summer comprised of Gabe Gleeson and Chevy Long are back with a brand new single, “Shiner.” “Shiner” is a bit of a departure from the duo’s typical, vibrant, electro-house productions; instead, the duo explores a darker territory using heavy house synth and thumping drums to create a truly diverse and unique sonic tale. Assisting on the track is the sumptuous vocals of Missy from Ginger & The Ghost. Her lush vocals sweetly glides throughout the song intensifying the magical experience of the track. We love it.

Nu Music: Moko – “Your Love” [Official Video]

We fell in love with London-based singer/songwriter MOKO back in early 2013 by way of her gorgeous debut, Summon The Strength (which we raved about) and later with the intoxicating Honey Cocaine off her incredible, Black EP. Well, the beautiful songstress has return with the superb, “Your Love” a 90s-infused, dance jam that could possibly serve as a great follow-up to Robin S’ classic, “Show Me Love”!

In the video, Moko struts and dances alone in an empty warehouse to the vibrant, 90’s-house beats of the song; as her every move, epic braids and powerful vocals turns every empty room into her own glamorous stage. Basically, this is Moko’s “Pleasure Principle.” We love it!

“Your Love” is the lead track from MOKO’s upcoming Gold EP arriving on August 24th.

Nu Music: Allie X – “Bitch” [Official Video]

LA-based artist by way of Toronto, Allie X has gone from being a relatively unknown artist to a potential rising star; all within a very short period of time.

She landed on earth from planet X (I just made that up) back in February with the electropop tune, “Catch” a sugary jam that immediately captured the attention of bloggers and a few well known artist. But it only took a quick tweet from Katy Perry:  “Currently I’m obsessed with this song CATCH by Allie X: SPRING JAM!”  to instantly gain the mystery-artist a substantial amount of followers. Allie X, followed “Catch” with an even catchier tune, “Prime” a synth-laden song with a more aggressive sound that deliciously verges on 80s New-Wave. Now, the alienesque songstress is back with “Bitch” an inescapable musical concoction that sounds like Lana Del Rey meets Cyrstal Castles meets 80’s band Art of Noise. And, although she might not admit it, there’s an homage to Ice Cube’s “It Was a Good Day” on those icy-cool, synth twinkles in the intro and throughout the song—which quite frankly makes her cooler than your average pop starlet. “Bitch” is simply, phenomenal.
