If you have a thing for Irish taxi drivers the latest joint by Swedish power house Sameblod will be right up your alley. Valencia comes off their new EP Nostalgia which is streaming in full over at Soundcloud. Now, these are times in which coffee and burgers are experiencing waves of their own and you can walk up to your barista and hear about the bean and where the bean went to school. And Sameblod, being born in a time when waves where chill and floating wasn't a socially accepted way to spend your Satuday afternoon, fill the need for purity and ingenious simplicity with both feet on the ground. If Sameblod were a city, they would probably be Valencia.

Australia - land of deadly animals and the ever sleepy Koala. And Tourist Dollars. This has to be the latest musical gem that the metropolis of Melbourne has managed to produce. It must be something in the drinking water down there or the way the air breezes across the bay because it just seems unnatural to put out this stellar amount of great music. Tourist Dollars though. They only have this song out and it's both 50s and Dire Straits and 2016. Longing to hear more. Hit play.
Rooftops, crushed ice drinks and a sun that is burning down even late in the evening. Things that aren't happening in November. Still, Swedish pop professors Sameblod have dropped the curtain and released a new song this week that give you a feeling of just that. Fade Out is summer glam all over and really all you could want from a pop track these days. From vast synths to the distinct Sameblod vocals - what a time to be alive.
Fade Out is attached below to your convenience and ready to be released on Stockholm label Sommarhjärta on the 3rd of December which frankly feels ages away although it is just three weeks away. Aloha!
Getting a good look at those flowers? Like cherry blossom, like trees shaking their leaves off around this time of the year, I'm Not A Band or rather Stephan very naturally sports a new singing voice alongside his synths and production work. Not necessarily wanting to lose the old one but instead - very much like leaf and tree - both of them progressing, separately, mutually, endogenous. So, here comes I'm Not A Band in an all new formation. And having followed his development quite closely in the past, this new setup is quite the leap ahead for the tastes of Team Poule. Proper electronic pop music, very forward, while still showing the distinct Stephan-part in it.
They are touring Europe right now, stopping in Hamburg at Molotow Bar this Friday. Berlin and Dresden and loads more after that. Should be a fun season to watch. The new album is titled Oceans and it out on German label AdP Records. Attached below is Cages, off said album. Make sure to also get a glimpse of the great video that comes along with it.
Parisian top flight team Champions League have kicked out a new mid-range volley of a song. AF2 is dreamy and easy on the ears making it a double plus in Team Poule's play book. The track comes off their upcoming second EP which unfortunately will not be called Gegenpressing but AF1 which is okay too and to be released on 25 Years and Running. They will be releasing a new song every two weeks until the release and with this new gem out today, you can do your calculations on when a new one might pop out. Take it away.
A heavy breeze of 90s vibes is about to hit down like a good old fashioned November storm: Nordic club rockers Ja Ja Ja are about to host the third edition of their concert series in Hamburg at Molotow tomorrow. Aboard the cruise ship are Italian by way of Sweden poppers Emmecosta, Icelandic singer M-Band and Danish robin goldbreasts CHINAH - pronounced China-ah, or something like that. Attached below is their latest treat Minds. A solid pop number that sounds like it's delorean'd right through an icy 90s loophole.
Team Poule naturally reached out for you and we managed to get 2x2 tickets for the Hamburg event under our wings. All you need to do to get a nice pair is comment on this post and the lucky winners will be drawn tomorrow, Nov 11th 2pm CET.
Ja Ja Ja is happening at Hamburgs Molotow tomorrow, November 11th, and at Berlins Flux Bau with the same line-up on the 12th. Now, there really isn't much reason to be anywhere else in November than at a Ja Ja Ja show.
Feathers, neon lights and lush beats - Cologne-based Roosevelt has the scents of a new super star. His debut lifted him out of the underground and into the fast lane of lime light and fame. With his new release he put the foot down on his disco pedal and delivered the soundtrack to your festival summer nights as well as the dark evenings of November. Attached below is his latest video, Night Moves.
Lucky then, that Herr Roosevelt will be showcasing his talent at a handful of gigs accross Europe this month, playing Amsterdam on the 16th and Paris on the 18th - both gigs in support for Hot Chip. No Hot Chip though on his spree across Germany playing Hamburgs shiny new venue Häkken on Nov 26th, Cologne on the 27th before being off to Frankfurt on the 28th and Berlin on the 29th - four days of traveling November-Germany: what more could you ask for really! Least you can do is come out and form a proper crowd for this fella to play in front of. All infos on the wheres and when - here.
