Bombay Bicycle Club is gearing up to release their fourth studio album (untitled as of yet), via Island Records in February 2014. In anticipation of the LP, the London quartet have released the first cut “Carry Me,” along with this accompanying cutting-edge interactive video.
Personally I love me some BBC, and I dig this release so hopefully this is a sign of good things to come. Stream “Carry Me” via Spotify below, along with a rad Tanlines remix of their track “Dust On the Ground.”
Now that I’m back from abroad, I’m amped to finally be sharing my list of stand-out indie tracks from the last year!
In no particular order, below are my top 50 artists and/or tracks of 2012. Since I started blogging midway through the year, some of these artists have been honored with a post prior and some have not. Thus for the sake of diversifying, in some cases the featured track below is not necessarily my favorite but a varying version of the original or new track entirely (but equally adored, obv).
I had the opportunity to see Tanlines at DC’s Black Cat last month and the dynamic Brooklyn duo managed to exceed my expectations. Not only do they have a fantastic live energy, but their music also has an element of world fusion which I wasn’t aware of going into.
“All of Me,” from their debut album Mixed Emotions released last March was their first single that caught my attention; then after the concert I had to go and uncover a bunch more. “Real Life” is a shining example of the sheer exuberance that radiates from Tanlines. As if that weren’t reason enough to listen to them, they also have a great handle. Who wouldn’t want to soak up tanlines all year long? Vitamin D-deprived crazy people, that’s who.
