#Musicmonday – #076

APOLOGIES for going AWOL on you all last week. There’s simply too much late-night Winter Olympic goodness going on right now, and my sleep stocks and ability to compose a credible #MusicMonday last week, was thus compromised.

With a bit of luck, the eclectic selection of tracks below drawn from Australia, Canada, Iceland and England will rectify my tardiness.

Here we go…

1. “Tear It Down (SAFIA Remix)” – The Aston Shuffle

CANBERRA, AUSTRALIA

Kicking off this week with a great track of chilled out beats from talented Aussie duo The Aston Shuffle, mixed effortlessly by another Aussie electronic group, SAFIA.

Nothing but great things to say about both acts – check them out when you get the chance!


2. “Shadows (feat. Alex Mills)” – Hot Since 82

LEEDS, UK

British DJ-producer Daley Padley, aka Hot Since 82 has delivered this week’s “most danceable” track featuring the vocals of Alex Mills, and set to a pretty dark and gruesome clip featuring SAW-like torture and Mad-Max-style vehicles..

Definitely a wind-down-the-windows-and-crank-it-up kinda tune, this one. 😉


3. “Torrent” – Ásgeir

REYKJAVIK, ICELAND

Ásgeir is quickly becoming my favourite Icelandic artist (sorry Björk). His unique brand of folk rock is ear-catching and worthy of a second appearance on #MusicMonday following his track “King & Cross” I posted back in July last year (#MusicMonday – #054).


4. “Ancient Mars” – The Zolas

VANCOUVER, CANADA

“Ancient Mars” is the title track from Vancouver act The Zolas’ second full-length album.

Always stoked to get some BC artists up here on #MusicMonday. If anyone else knows of any great new artists popping up over there, please point me in the right direction!


5. “Create / Destroy” – Art vs Science

SYDNEY, AUSTRALIA

The disco/Daft Punk sound is alive and well in 2014, and here’s a track from Sydney-siders Art vs Science to more than prove it!

Tonnes of HUGE electro/disco hooks here to keep your finger on the “repeat” button for the rest of today!
