The first single off of the fresh new artist LELAND’s EP, “AWARE” has such a delicate happy feeling. It reminds me so much of the first time I heard “Electric Feel” by MGMT, which was like I was hit with a lust for life and blissful joy. “Aware” makes me want to drive down PCH with the windows down on a beautiful sunny day. His sound is very nostalgic; like a mixture between 80’s pop and new age indie. Like M83 and MGMT and INXS had a musical baby that just sprung out of the womb and blessed us with its creation. This song is super catchy, I guarantee it will get stuck in your head. Watch the sweet video here:
In honor of his show last night at the El Rey Theatre, today’s song of the day is Do You Don’t You by Haywyre. The funky elements of its electronic groove take you back to the early Daft Punk days. Its got glitchy trance vocals atop a climbing bassline that keeps you going along the rhythm. Its repetitive chorus continues as the song progresses into a melodic flute-like sound. Its got a creative blend of trance, funk, electronic and tropical elements. Give it a listen and get funky!!!
Had this song on repeat for the past few days. Its got an incredible beat that I can’t help but move my body to. It’s dark creepy vibe kind of haunts you as you dance. Megan James is the perfect vocalist for their epic sound, with Corin Rodrick behind their hip-hop infused electronic music. This song sends chills down my back as I pop to the hard hits of the glitchy bass. Its an inspiration to see such a dynamic duo making music worth blogging about.
