Wow this guy is growing on me. I first posted about him back at the beginning of January and whilst I liked what I heard it’s only after hearing him again on the radio that I realized just how good he is. The song ‘Radar Detecter’ is just so, so catchy – I don’t want to like it but I can’t get it out of my head! Have a listen on his myspace


Summer Camp

10 Feb

Another new band for you, and one who prefer to let the music do the talking. Like recent acts Kindness and Burial, Summer Camp are an anonymous band who hide behind retro photos and red herrings. They claimed they are swedish – they aren’t, so who knows if they really met at summer camp, aged 14 as they also claim.

They have a cool sound, a mixture of film samples, dance beats, nostalgic lyrics and poppy melodies. They aren’t dissimilar to Washed Out but their sound is more geared towards pop than dance. In particular ‘Ghost Train’ stands out, it’s simply a great, hazy, summery smash. Rumour has it that Moshi Moshi could be releasing a single from them in March, so I’ll keep you updated on that. Check out their myspace and the video for ‘Ghost Train’ below.
