(Synth Pop) Teenage Sweater – Young Glitter

Teenage sweater - Young Glitter

I was driving through the SW Hills and saw this Portland hipster jogging in his skinny jeans, converse and tight black t-shirt. He had his phone in one hand earbuds attached to his head and a dead pan expression filled with sweat and concentration.

Now just to make sure he wasn’t running to or from some kind of an emergency I followed him for a bit, because this is the kind of mundane stuff that peaks my interest. My spidy senses were correct, this guy had thrown all normal ideas of proper jogging attire out the fucking door and said this is me and I’m jogging. I thought good for you, it’s about time we had some rebellious spirit in the jogging community. Common sense be dammed no big corporation with all their fancy ads and “scientific” data on proper ergonomic gear was influencing this Sid Vicious of the athletic world.
So I dedicate this post to the guy who’s probably still out there turning the jogging fashion world on it’s head.

Young Glitter is a recent release from Mario Armando Ruiz aka Teenage Sweater and he knows all about doing your own thing with a form of experimental synth pop Chill-wave that always seems familiar but pushes the boundaries by experimenting and challenging the norm in modern electro music. We definitely have some Bauhaus slash Joy Division influences going on, which I always love.

[French Pop] New Song from Yelle – L’Amour Parfait (with English translated lyrics)

[French Pop] New Song from Yelle - L'Amour Parfait

Yelle never ceases to amaze me. Her new song “L’Amour Parfait” breaks away from her signature indie French dance pop, a style that made her the epitome of what was cool in electro back in 2006 and returns with a definitive darker palette. There’s no mistaking it’s Yell, she still has that beautiful vocal style that you can spot in a minute, but she’s coloring outside the lines here. She’s experimenting with new sounds and damned if she didn’t nail it with  “L’Amour Parfait”. Produced by her long time collaborator Grand Marnier and Aeroplane they fuse Trap beats and Nu Disco melodies bring a new element to her music that works brilliantly. If this is the kind of thing we can expect from her from now on I look forward to her new stuff.

L’Amour Parfait EP comes out on February 11th on Kitsune and includes remixes from Baadman, Sticky K, The Phantom, and Ruben Mandolini.  You can Pre order it on Itunes.

//////////////////// LYRICS ///////////////////////

I don’t know what you mean, but it means a lot to me

Your defects are my qualities I am only one formality when the love leaves when the perfect love

I will serve you balance, I know anything that you observe when you are there when you are tired

I’m your tool of arrogance, I no longer exists when you have confidence when love leaves when love perfect

I would not have this chance, Being equipped with a conscience When love hand when perfect love

[Nu Disco] Du Tonc Debut Single Darkness

avatars-000028072055-1rpnn9-crop

Du Tonc is a collaboration project from London Producer Mighty Mouse and Matt Van Schie of the Aussie electro-pop group Van She. After first meeting in a Paris Club back in 2010 they’ve toyed with the possibilities of working on a project together, and we have waited patiently in anticipation for our reward. Well that day has come; “Darkness” is a beautiful blending of bright melodies, funky fuzzy distorted guitar riffs and soft personal vocals. This is an great debut single for these two. It’s bright and beautiful and I found myself coming back to it over and over. Darkness is released on the UK label Cheap Thrills and you can pick it up on Darkness - Darkness - Single.

If you dig this tune make sure and support this artist by picking it up  and don’t forget to show us some love for hooking you up by following us on Facebook and Twitter. Thanks

[Electro Pop] “Diver” from AlunaGeorge’s debut album

[Electro Pop] AlunaGeorge - Diver

Future Pop duo AlunaGeorge turned some heads in 2012 with some hugely successful singles Your Drums, Your Love,  Watching Over You So it’s no surprise that they claimed the #2 spot in the BBC Sound of 2013 poll. The #1 spot going to another great band featured here on Sublevel Haim.  AlunaGeorge really didn’t have a single bad track last year, and 2013 is moving in the same direction for them. Gearing up for a June album debut they’ve released the title track “Body Love” on  BBC 1Xtra Live Lounge earlier today. “Diver” is the stand out track for me so far. Sultry and emotional they use elements of R&B, Minimal Drum N Bass and Synth pop. Then topping it with some Aluna’s signature vocals and well that just feels like home to me.
