The Vaccines

The Vaccines have had a hell of a year, one day you're releasing What did you expect from The Vaccines? and the other day you're touring all over the world with this record, if that ain't a dream of every upcoming artist.. Well, after their world tour, they released their second album Come Of Age and I must say it is pretty different than their debut album. You probably already know their single Teenage Icon which has been played all summer on a lot of radio stations.

Elbow

A year after they released their last and stunning album Buld A Rocket Boys!, Elbow is back. You might have seen them live the last year at a lot of festivals in Europe, they've been touring quite a lot the last year, and they performed at the closing ceremony of the Olympic Games of Londen this year, too.

Now, the recent album: Dead In The Boot, is an album like we're used to from Elbow, usage of a whole orchestra and multiple vocals, perfect for a night chilling in your seat, in the car,...

Two Door Cinema Club

It has been more than two year since Two Door Cinema Club released their outstanding debut album Tourist History, and yesterday they released their newest album Beacon, for real. Last week they released it on Soundcloud, for everybody to stream it and pre-order it. Anyway, Beacon might not be as fresh and catchy as their debut album was, but it sure is a great album as well. Sleep Alone is playing on the radio's all over the world, and might be the best track of the album.

Yeasayer

After two years of touring and writing, Yeasayer are back, better than ever! Officially their new record Fragrant World isn't for sale yet, but with some help of Youtube and other blogs, we were able to listen to it. As I said before, they are back like they never stopped writing: their new album is as catchy and mysterious as the previous two they wrote. Tracks like Henrietta and Reagan's Skeleton was already hyped by a lot of blogs, but there are some other tracks on the album that are even better than those.

Purity Ring

After a year of releasing singles and being hyped by the most famous blogs, Purity Ring finally released their debut album! It sure was worth waiting, although the best tracks on the album are the singles they released earlier this year. In my opinion, the best tracks on the album are Fineshrine, Ungirthed and Belispeak.
In general, Purity Ring did a great job for their first album, they created a unique sound between dreampop from The Knife (most known from their hit-single Heartbeats) and the two-step beats from Burial and Four Tet.

Max and the Moon

A couple of months ago I reviewed this band called Max and the Moon, they had just released their EP called The Way I See. And now they've offered us a sneak preview of their latest work. They are releasing a three-part music video series called Trail of the Dead

Alt-J (∆)

One of the best albums of the recent months: An Awesome Wave by Alt-J (this is a keyboard-combination on Mac to form a ∆). This might come as a surprise since it's the first thing that we've heard from these guys, but their debut album is just amazing. The album is a mixture of folk, R&B-beats, electronic melodies and indie-rock guitar riffs, so they make it really hard for us to put them in a box of a certain genre.

Muse

The good news: Muse are back! Today they released the trailer for their upcoming album The 2nd Law. The bad news: it looks like Muse is going mainstream by using dubstep beats in The 2nd Law, hopefully this is not for all the tracks on the album, since it would ruin a lot of their songs. In my opinion there will be a few bad tracks on the new album, but I hope that they will use grab back to their sound from albums like Showbiz and Origin of Symmetry. The only thing I have to say is: judge yourself.

Gold & Youth

Gold & Youth is a Canadian-based band who are going to release their debut album soon. They already released their first single from the forthcoming album, called Time To Kill. Time To Kill is a stunning song from this promising band, and you can hear influences from Depeche Mode and The XX. Check the music video out below!

PS: You can download the single for free on their website: http://goldandyouth.tumblr.com/.

Dirty Gold

Terrible weather here in Belgium the past couple of days, it's like it isn't summer at all. Therefore we had to find a solution to gain our summerfeeling elsewhere. We found it. 3 West Coast youngsters, called Dirty Gold, remind us what summer actually should be! It might not have been a great summer so far, but this EP will definitely take you to those good old summer days. This track has been floating around blogosphere for a while, but is starting to gain more stream with the release of the group's debut EP Roar.

Enjoy!
