Kill For Love
Into the Black
Kill for Love
This is the soundtrack of a midnight drive in the city, passing by city lights and going to an unknown destination.
This is also one of the best albums of 2012 so far IMO. Chromatics succeeded to produce a highly cinematic album while still containing great standalone hits. If you loved Drive’s ost, you’ll love this (Chromatic’s previous album had been a source of inspiration for the ost).
Kill for Love opens with a cover of Neil Young’s “Hey Hey, My My (Into the Black)”. A risky move, but a marvellous result. It then goes on with the title track, containing most of what the album is made of (ambient, disco, synth-pop, etc.)
If I can give you only one piece of advice, you should jump into this album and listen to it several times. And not just in a car at night. Give it a try at the beach, on rainy or lazy days… Just maybe not to go running or exercice, as listening to KFL with stretch the time and calm down everything surrounding.
It’s The Arps EP
Todd Terje has been one of my favourite artists those last months.
This Norwegian dude has a big moustache and produces amazing songs. His EP “Ragysh”, released last year, got really positive reviews all around. Besides his own creations, he also delivers excellent remixes for a lot of different artists. It’s always a success with Todd Terje. Just enter “Todd Terje” in Youtube to have a look at the quantity of tracks he’s been made.
His latest EP -It’s The Arps- contains 5 new original tracks and is, again, epic.
Inspector Norse is the one opening the EP and is a perfect Sunday song. It has got the unique Todd Terje’s sound, very chill but even catchier than ever! My favorite track from 2012 so far.
If you like this one and don’t know yet the rest of his work, “Snooze For Love” is another excellent Sunday song.
Got To Have (Flight Facilities Remix)
Got To Have Remixes
You must already know Flight Facilities from their hit single Crave You. Well, they’re also awesome when it comes to remixing. Proof with this track, nearly 8 minutes of pure sound mixing the genres. Disco, jazz, rock, electro… different kinds of sounds that build up until the climax.
Enough said, let’s just…
Urban Photograph Single
I first discovered this song in a trailer of the snowboard video Isenseven 2011 then I heard it again on a blog and I knew it had to go on Popeye! Urban Cone is a group of five young lads from… wait for it… Sweden! Yes another group that comes from the North. People will start believing that we have a soft spot for the country of busty blond girls. Very young group indeed, formed about a year ago with a combination of rock and electronic music. Urban Cone mixes acoustic guitar, synth, bass, piano and drums, all in a catchy rhythm that I would easily compare with the Two Door Cinema Club which made the “I Can Talk” song that was featured in the 2010 Best of Popeye. A young sound, hip, trendy, fresh, über goot and Groovy. Enjoy the song!
