ElectroPop *Theme Park, Delorean, When Saints Go Machine, LectroLips, Holy Ghost!

June 7th, 2011 by | Alternative/Indie, Electropop |

First artist is called Theme Park which is a really fun place to go to, much like the song “Milk”. It’s got an indie electro-pop feel, but it’s relaxed, fun instrumentals and a nice hipster dancing song. Facebook / Twitter

Next we got Delorean, who are blowing up quick with their lounge electro-pop. I’m a super fan of the instrumentals and the lyrics are simple enough to have trouble not liking. Here’s “Deli” which I have heard in at least 2-3 hip-hop samples. Facebook

“When Saints Go Marching” was my favorite easy song to play on piano when I played back in high school. When Saints Go Machine is an indie electro-pop group with high-pitched vocals, interesting instrumentals and a chill synth-pop sound. Facebook / Twitter

LectroLips were first featured here back in the Spring in one of our first editions of our soundcloud’s best feature. Their latest song “Voyeur” is unusual, sounds a bit like industrial electro-pop, lyrics similar to some of those spoken word songs by Madonna. Listen before you download. Facebook / Twitter

Lastly let’s throw up some Holy Ghost! who have a synth-pop sound that reminds me of the 80’s but which of the above songs doesn’t remind you of the 1980’s electro-pop music scene. But hey, history repeats itself. Facebook / Twitter

Upcoming Indie ElectroPop *Fritz Arnaude, Phantogram, Stepdad, Twin Shadow

March 1st, 2011 by | Alternative/Indie, Electropop, Rock |

Sorry to bunch up four emerging indie electro-pop artists into one post but at least you get to discover more than 1 artist that you might not have heard of (except Phantogram). Above is Phantogram performing “Let Me Go” live. It sounds just a little bit better than listening to their non-live version below.

First we got Fritz Arnaude who samples some of Phoenix to start off the song gets Skizzy Mars spitting some bars and overall love the instrumental. This is the kind of song that builds up so well you really can’t wait to hear what’s next.
Fritz Arnaude – Possibilities [Ft. Skizzy Mars]
Next we got Phantogram with “Let Me Go”. I love Phantogram becuase of how catchy, complex and intriguing their instrumentals are. Close your eyes and listen to the instrumentals and tell me your not hooked. Plus the vocals are nice.

I downloaded this Stepdad almost a month ago and loved it because of the instrumentals. Listening to it again in the car today, I kept thinking how great the instrumentals could be in a mashup. Plus I really like the weird lyrics.
Stepdad – My Leather, My Fur, My Nails
Lastly, Twin Shadow is becoming a new favorite of mine. Below is my favorite from them, “At My Heels”, which is a chill song, reminds m relaxed Two Door Cinema Club instrumentals but with American flavor (their from Brooklyn).

Chilly Gonzales – You Can Dance *my dirty interesting pleasure

February 10th, 2011 by | Alternative/Indie, Electro, Electropop, Music Video, Pop |

Are you ready to DANCE!?! Seriously, this is one of my favorite songs I have heard in the last month or so and it’s a good song because it’s tough to define it. This can be retro-futuristic, electro-pop but whatever you want to define it as, you can’t deny wanting to shake your hips a little while listening to it.

It’s just a really interesting song, it is kind of mainstream with over 350,000 youtube views but if your looking to dance in a more chill atmosphere, like in your room or hanging with some friends, play this song and you better shake your hips too!

Above is the 3 minute music video version, but the 5 minute original version is so much better. Download

By the way, Chilly Gonzales is also a producer with his album and film, “Ivory Tower” being of the same name. Look him up and I think you will find he’s pretty interesting, much like the song above.

Polarsets – Just Don’t Open Your Eyes Yet *indie electro-pop

February 7th, 2011 by | Alternative/Indie, Electropop |

I love this song by the Polarsets, a british indie electro-pop band from the UK who sounds a bit like Two Door Cinema Club with “Just Don’t Open Your Eyes Yet”. I could see somebody doing a club type remix on this and it getting blasted over the radio. I sure hope that happens because more people need to hear this song. Download

To be honest, I have heard more of Polarsets recent stuff and this song is different than their other songs, but I hope Polarsets do more upbeat indie rock/pop stuff like “Just Don’t Open Your Eyes Yet”. To hear Polarsets other stuff, check out their soundcloud.
