Happy Holidays everyone! Hope you’ve all been having wonderful holidays thus far! Apologies for the little break last week, I was out of the country and had very limited access to reliable internet. Here’s this week’s ear candy:
I must admit, this first video and track totally made my day when I first saw it. Yes, it’s a surfing video but it’s also a great downtempo chill track. The track totally transports me into another world. The track I’m talking about is, Peaking Lights‘ dreamy “Beautiful Dub”, taken from their 2012 release Lucifer In Dub (a dubbed-out version of their latest LP Lucifer). Hope you’ll enjoy it as much as I did!
So happy that there’s a brand new Charli XCX single out. The track is called “You Ha Ha Ha”. The young UK pop singer is definitely one of my favorite artists of 2012. Super excited for her debut full-length to be released in the new year. In the meantime, you can listen to the track here:
I just spent the past ten days on vacation in France. Over the years, I’ve always listened to the music that was coming out of this great country but it was only this past year, thanks to @offneraurelien, that I really tuned into what was being done across the Atlantic. While, I was in France, I spent a lot of time listening to French radio to really get a feel for the stand out artists in the country. One of the names that really stood out, is the Caen rapper Orelsan. If you’ve never heard of him, I highly recommend checking him out. He’s articulate, intelligent and not afraid to rap about France’s current social issues. Here’s his track “Suicide Social” –
And his latest hit “Si Seul” –
So there you have it for this week! Have a lovely weekend!
