Kings of Leon – Temple

The third single from KOL’s sixth album, Mechanical Bull, follows the success of the first two singles ‘Supesoaker’ and ‘Wait for Me’ and receives generally positive critics for the band fromTennessee.

 

 

Bayou – Varsity Jacket

The one part of Hari Ashurst’s, aka Bayou, digital single continues the buzz of the other part “Cherry Cola”, mixing soul music with electronic and R&B. As Colette suggests: “Very highly recommended!”.

 

 

Arcade Fire – Afterlife

Perhaps, the most anticipated album of the year, Reflektor, after the homonym single, returns with its second single “Afterlife”. Undeniably, it stays on the top of our “Most Played Songs” list.

 

 

Sean Nicholas Savage – Other Life (+Chin Chin)

A totally random discovery was Canadian musician Sean Nicholas Savage. His pop ballads, deal with themes like love and pain in an addictive and hypnotic way. From his new album, Other Life, to previous albums, such as Flamingo, every song is a new obsession.
