Moon’s Song of the Week: Down The Road by C2C

I promised last week that I’d dig out that C2C track that’s been blowing me away and I’ve managed to find it. C2C are part of  the great tradition of French electro but they take it one step further than most.

In this track (with Richie Jackson) they combine hobo blues with electro to produce something that sounds like Daft Punk meets Seasick Steve. It helps that the video’s suitably weird as well!

Moon’s Song of the Week: Faster Horses by MNDR

Moon’s bringing you a bit of electro today. Faster Horses is the new single from American electro duo, MNDR and it’s pretty much exactly the kind of music you need on a Friday. While it really needs a big sound system to do it justice, it still has a fantastic feel to it on my puny speakers. I just love the way it breaks down half way through.

Faster Horses is out now.

Moon’s Song of the Week: Copy of Copy by Himuro

I know next to nothing about Himuro, I stumbled upon this track in a stack of old songs that I picked up a few years back and it’s pretty much my only exposure to his(?) work. If my wikipedia skills are on form them he’s this guy, in which case he’s worked on Final Fantasy, raised a butt load of money for charity and is huge in Japan.

What I do know is that Copy of Copy is a fantastically scrappy bit of eastern electro with a beat that reminds me of some of Dan Le Sac’s best. If you like your music choppy, fun and upbeat then you should dig this track.

Moon’s Song of the Week – Tomorrow by Niki & the Dove

Scandinavian electro pop act, Niki & The Dove’s debut album officially came out this week and that means with national newspapers rushing to review it, the small window during which I can pretend they are this cool little band nobody else knows about is rapidly closing. As much as I’ve enjoyed my brief little holiday as a hipster, the band thoroughly deserve the meteoric rise that doubtless now lies before them so here’s one more track of theirs to see them on their way.

Tomorrow is another collection of quirky beats and soaring vocals that offers shades of Florence Welch and Kate Bush while still retaining the band’s own style.

Moon’s Song of the Week: No Diggity by Chet Faker

I actually scheduled this back on Monday as I’m in Barcelona right now watching F1 cars drive in elaborate circles. With that in mind I apologise if anything radically meaningful has been release music wise that I’ve missed in the last few days.

That said, there can’t be many new tracks that are as worth posting as this gem from Australian Electo artist, Chet Faker. A cover of Dr Dre & Blackstreet’s 1996 hit, No Diggity, that somehow manages to not disappoint. Chet’s voice is soulful and the backing track, haunting. It’s a perfect combination and the best bit is that you can download it for free from HERE.
