Another Wainwright it chomping at your acoustic soul!
Aurganic’s music video showcases their myriad of instruments in high detail
Bounding piano, hellbent drums and psychedelic interludes? We. Love. Megan.
A dream pop band from that jumps from mood to rage in a beat.
Mara Measor originates from Hong Kong but lives in New York and is happy to balance and wear both sides of her life on her musical sleeve. Mara’s voice is pristine and reminds me of a delicate, less raspy Vanessa Carlton. The music permeates the female singer/songwriter genre beautifully and this lead track from her […]
Trippy literally, Mortar and Pestle finally get their first music out and it’s to U.V. which was for me the weakest track on the EP. Although it speaks volumes that the weakest track still rawks! Enjoy.
Universal You takes on an 80s classic for their entrance to synth-pop
If I were to be writing downbeat rock music about being home by a certain time I’d make a music video featuring a man with a clock as a head too… catchy chorus hooks too!
Everyone knows I do like a bit of Celtic folklore in my musical repertoire and Cantus Lunaris fits the bill perfectly. Not only owners of the most dramatic break down in tears in a forest during a music video award, they weave some siren-esque voices around some more traditional celtic roots yet around afraid to […]
SPC ECO return with a new single that was released today called Delusional Waste. It’s a dreamy synth pop splash into cookies and cream. By that I mean reverb all over the keys and a whopping great kick drum throughout. What could you not love about this trance-drone?
Dragonfly Lingo has an amazing tonal quality to it where the sound feels like it’s been beamed down from an alien craft because everything sounds foreign. It’s pushing boundaries on what cinematic abstract gothic electronica can do. It’s not an easy listen but it would be how I’d imagine a Silent Hill soundtrack sounding like […]
Goldfrapp constantly sway back and forth over a certain palette of music and this falls firmly on Felt Mountain side. Welcome to their new single Drew.
Well firstly – awesome name! Secondly, Alice has a very self assured delicacy to her vocal that makes it flexible and fragile whilst the music around her is soaked in sadness and beauty. The best way to introduce her is by her latest music video. This is “Lover’s Fate” and it is gorgeous:
Melanie Garside has many a guise and we love them all here at HPM. As a solo artist she returned earlier in 2013 with a new album we’ve got winging its way to the stereo. In the meantime, enjoy this whimsy acoustic rock track “Keep This Moment Alive”. There is beauty in every chord.
We love LittleBigPlanet. We love Winifred Phillips. So now that Winifred is celebrating her music video for “Victoria’s Lab” hitting 200,000 views, I think it’s time to join in the party too. LBP’s soundtracks have been diverse from the offset but this vocal rock track is exceptional. The video’s pretty awesome too.
The Tomas Doncker Band has been making waves with their world soul sound and Tomas has a simply amazing voice. His guitar chops aren’t bad either. The ultimate chill out summer top down track: Spoonful
Steve Schultz may be releasing his second album Over The Edge this week but he’s just getting us warmed up to his clean and honest vocals and piano based tunes. There’s something very organic and Simon/Garfunkel about Steve that makes everything feel fresh whilst reminiscent of what a lot of people consider the hey day […]
Amatorski are a Belgian band and they have elements of Sparklehorse, Portishead, Sig Ros and Fever Ray but with the voice of Emiliana Torrini on top. The clash of harsh electronica, no matter how stark the arrangement, and the warm liquid gold vocals is intoxicating and we will definitely be featuring more of Amatorski soon. […]
