Came across Christine and the Queens a month or two ago when their single Christine took over the blog world (and if you haven’t heard it, stop whatever you are doing and listen to it). The Loving Cup is just as captivating, just addicting and just as catchy…with a pretty good music video to boot.
This one JUST missed the cutoff for last week, otherwise it would have been high on that list as well. I’m a sucker for chopped vocals or chopped beat, and I completely melted when it hit the 35 second mark of this remix by KOPPS. Doesn’t hurt having the awesome vocals from SPEAK either.
The debut (as far as I know) from BATTS is another soft-sounding song that’s driven by gorgeous female vocals. It’s actually eerily similar to the tune by Aces that topped my list last week..perhaps a little more haunting, but just as excellent.
Hadn’t come across KCSB until going through my blogroll this past week, and I was hooked to S.T.A.C.Y. from the moment the vocal-driven-beat started. I like to stick to soundcloud, but unfortunately all I had for this one was a youtube video. If you can, find yourself a pair of headphones and seek out a high quality version of this one… it’s worth it for that bass alone.
Is it taboo to post radio rips? Normally I’d look past a song to find something else, but I can’t skip this one. That chorus is just too dance-worthy to pass up on. Who doesn’t love a good dance anthem?!
This one came out of nowhere. After a first listen it stuck enough to make my rotation, but the more I listened the more entranced I was. Something about the soft lulls of that chorus and the gentle vocals just… just work. Already one of my favourite songs of the year.
