So, Team Poule got out of the house last week to see this guy Schultz and Forever play under a Christmas tree. And it couldn't have been a better setting for a truly amazing solo set by him. Cozy bar, dim light, a husky voice and the guitar at his finger tips, a beautiful collection of songs showcasing his emerging talent is up on Soundcloud. Attached below is the dynamic Spirit Molecule. Make sure to check out Silvia too.
His new EP Broadcast Dynamics is out now - and makes a great Christmas present for the interested music lover if that is what you are looking for.
It's almost Christmas and Team Poule is already in full-on festive mode. Setting the mood is French ensemble Her Magic Wand with this fantastic track titled Everything At Once. A true beaut, right in the electro pop vibe that tickles the Poule's plumage. It's the first track of his upcoming debut album, so make sure you keep your eyes peeled for that one. Powerful stuff.
Whoa whoa whoa - Christmas is just around the corner and London-based producer SchulKid together with singer Valair yesterday released this little present titled Wildest Promise - beautifully wrapped in a soundcloud stream. If this doesn't get you in the mood, nothing will.
Very enjoyable indie pop coming in from Swedish duo Manfred Kidd. This track Lights has actually been around for most of the year and must have slipped the radar. Lights is taken off their great EP titled Where Were You When You Were Us. Look out for their debut album to drop soon.
Lovers of a good playlist - here is something that will tickle your fancy. Swedish indie label Sommarhjärta has a rather inspiring playlist project going on where they team up with friends and fellow music enthusiasts for curating the best indie playlist. They already have a rather popular one up on Spotify with the best indie tracks from this year. Now they teamed up with fellow music supporter and all around French expert Manon Joly Sibuet to create a joy ride of the best French indie electro tracks that 2014 had to offer. Attached below is the truly wonderful collection of songs that go so well together it give you the goose bumps. Some familiar names and loads of unknowns at least for Team Poule.
Remember when the Kitsuné compilations used to be these great mixtapes and exciting sources of good music? Sommarhjärta and Manon created just that. And it doesn't stop there. The playlist will be updated every week with the best French tunes out there. Make sure to follow - and hit play on the Spotify playlist below and lose yourself in the grace and glamour that is French indie slash electro. Too good - new poule favorites include Kuage, Paradis, Midori and Tahiti 80.
A world exclusive this one: Norwegian's delicious indie label Sellout Music are celebrating their 10 year anniversary and they are honouring themselves with a beautiful compilation album titled Northern Reexposure for which the fine names on their roster sampled tracks that were on the very first Sellout release a decade ago: Kenneth Ishak's Northern Exposure. Team Poule is proud to be hosting the premiere of beat wizard Torkelsen's take on Nattbuss.
Northern Reexposure features tracks by Torkelsen, Snasen, Pandreas, Benjamin Finger, Texten, Violet Dream and Safariari and it will be out digitally on December 19th, 2014. A family record and ace Christmas present by Team Poule standards. Hit play and swoon in the marvelous catchiness that is Torkelsen.
Almost too smooth this one. Old pals Pin Tweaks return to the scene with a feature on this massive Astro Zu track. Pin Tweaks' perfect vocals and Astro Zu's nimble production create a piece of perfection. A soft and serene yet very forward and elevated track. Sounds like a very enjoyable ghost town. Electrodub?
Meant to have this one up aaages ago - this really is as good as it gets. William Arcane serves the perfect soundtrack for a reckless weekend, regardless of month and weather. A good song is a good song is a good song.
