Ambassadors – Unconsolable

ambassadorsphoto

Ambassadors sound a lot like the soul/electro-informed indie sound of 2011. Like the concept of that sound, not any actual band. No actual band sounds exactly like that really. There are contenders; TV on the Radio, and uhmmm I don’t know, tUnE-yArDs. Anyway, these blokes sound like TV on the Radio. A TVOTR that are playing high stakes. Ambassadors, with a track like “Unconsolable”, are band that is absolutely gunning for major label notice.

The Bullitts – Run & Hide (Feat. Jay Electronica)

run-and-hide

The Bullitts via Pink Floyd, David Bowie, and Supergrass link up w Mr. Badu for a psych-r&b (did we really just take it there) jam that sounds not quite like anything you’ve likely heard before (except those above bands).
