Ft. Speakerman Sound (Glastonbury UK), Clap Clap Riot (Auckland NZ), The Wild Now (Texas USA), Weslee (London UK), DJ B.TWO (Melbourne AUS), French Vanilla (Los Angele USA)

Lily spent the week listening to an overload of brand new cuts delivered to us direct from national and international artist/band/promoters.  It’s no easy task selecting 5 standouts, and this week we cracked, we couldn’t decide, so we have for you 6.  A testament to the musical diversity yet again that is borderless and genre-free. 

 

Weaning Lamb: Speakerman Sound

Cut: In Flight Ft. Sharky

Based In: Glastonbury, UK

Flavours Of: Glass Animals, RUFUS, 808 State

Two brothers hailing from the UK make up new production duo Speakerman Sound. With a percussive, summery feel ‘In Flight’ is a soaring track from the pair!

 

Weaning Lamb: Clap Clap Riot

Cut: Tired of Getting Old

Based In: Auckland, NZ

Flavours Of: Real Estate, Peter Bjorn & John, Phoenix

New Zealand’s Clap Clap Riot paint a portrait of modern life’s mediocrity on ‘Tired Of Getting Old’. Surf rock meets the wild west on this track; its boppy bassline, whistle hook and spacey guitar will definitely get you through the day.

Weaning Lamb: The Wild Now

Cut: Run For Your Life

Based In: Texas, USA

Flavours Of: Lorde, Kita Alexander, Little Dragons

A strong, alt-pop offering from the Texan outfit. ‘Run For Your Life’ is carried by sweet, sweet vocals and embellished by affected guitars.

 

Weaning Lamb: Weslee 

Cut: Gassed

Based In: London, UK

Flavours Of: Ngaiire, Disclosure, FKA Twigs

We have a lot of love for this fresh cut from a mysterious new duo hailing from the UK. ‘Gassed’ is a dark party track from Weslee that remains minimal as it pulses with an electro groove.

 

Weaning Lamb: DJ B.TWO

Cut: New Day

Based In: Melbourne, AUS

Flavours Of: Grandmaster Flash

With beats of the old-school sampler variety and jazzy keyboard carrying the groove, DJ B.TWO of Melbourne offers a homage to hip-hop on ‘New Day’.

 

Weaning Lamb: French Vanilla

Cut: Social Trappings

Based In: Los Angeles, USA 

Flavours Of: Regina Spektor, Yeah Yeah Yeahs

Fancy a femme-fronted punk track that forays into a sax solo? Of course you do. Ask and you shall receive ‘Social Trappings’ from LA outfit French Vanilla.
