Singapore producer Fauxe has been making noise on the Indie Shuffle airwaves for more than a year now. What’s impressed me most about Fauxe is his restlessness with the status quo. As soon as he puts out one quality EP, he decides to switch the style up and explore new musical directions.
Last weekend, the French masterminds that form Phoenix headlined the final day of Lollapalooza 2013. Rolling Stones’ Dan Hyman wrote that Phoenix “delivered the best performance of the entire weekend” and that the band is “undeniably worthy of the massive stages ““ and dollars ““ they now command.”
Jungle have absolutely no online social presence. How weird is that? I mean, perhaps that wasn’t so abnormal 10 years ago, but in this day and age?!
After the success of their single “Jumanji” back in February, we’ve had to wait way too long for some more from Sydney’s Glass Towers. Their excuse has been a myriad of tours, combined with the completion of their second EP Collarbone Jungle. Produced by Jean-Paul Fung (Last Dinosaurs, Bluejuice), it’s bound to be packed full of […]
Are you into classic 70s and 80s dance music with a modern flare? Why yes, you say? Well strap on those dancing shoes, shufflers! Chad Bundick has whipped up another infectiously danceable EP for all of us to lose ourselves to, which drops today, September 13!
Glockenspiel. Drums. Banjo. Cello. Synthesizer. Pay attention to Freelance Whales now.

Yes, I did refer to Danger Mouse (or Brian Burton as his mother would say) as Almighty. As you might know from previous posts, I have all but devoted my […]
Total psychedelic rock and roll. I dig the old sound of these songs, and yet there is an unmistakable newness to it. This is the kind of music that gets me hopping in the morning. Give it a listen, and I don’t think you’ll be disappointed.
This is a present day album that can really put your parents’ old turntable to use. In an age when music is becoming increasingly electronic, the Phenomenal Handclap Band’s debut self-titled album is decidedly vinyl. This group is poppy, but with a bass-infused rhythmic vibe and a range of melodies that essentially chronicle mainstream music as a […]
Andy Shauf’s The Neon Skyline album is out January 24th. At some stage “Living Room” crept into my life and has been lying in the corner, randomly popping up on repeat. The song’s lyrics read similar to an old Lupe Fiasco song that recently reemerged in my life. I guess 2006 is old school, because the music video for […]
