Ballet School – Ghost

Belfast band Ballet School’s excellent “Ghost” is the latest UK rock obsession around b3sci HQ. The airtight rhythm section/melody dynamic in the track anchors a sharply delivered floats-on-top-the-mix female vocal sat up on hook upon hook upon hook. TLOBF

Ultraista – Gold Dayzz (Maribou State Remix)

This cosmic re-do of Ultraista’s “Gold Dayzz” is the latest in a string of really good (beautiful) remixes from the LDN duo Maribou State. Swirling electronics, stunningly voiced vocal harmonies, and sweetly gliding counterrhythms are among well executed standout qualities of the remix. Do not miss it.

Russ Chimes – Turn Me Out

The Russ Chimes train rolls on with latest track “Turn Me Out” debuted tonight on Annie Mac’s R1 programme. The uptempo track has the feel of classic early 90’s music without sounding hokey, dated or dumb. We are into it.

Joel Culpepper – Passenger

Silky smooth soulman Joel Culpepper delivers a midtempo R&B cooler of the highest quality in “Passenger”. Excepted here from his “SkyDive” EP, Culpepper employs his erstwhile falsetto and neatly dulcet tones in varying stages to create interesting dynamics of tension and release between the track’s verses and chorus.

WU LYF – Triumph (Demo)

So it seems (at least according to a cutely worded note on the band’s website) that Wu Bro has, as a band, met the final curtain (that or they’re just being funny, we’ll allow you to decide). With the note was posted the unreleased “Triumph” which you can stream below (you can also read singer Ellery Roberts’ note below too):

“Evans/Joe/Tom

I am gone. This isn’t the end. This is the begging.
We done business to be as free as we want to be; I’m exercising this freedom. Manchester and the life we maintaining is leaving me empty. It is a beautiful/ incredible/ insane world we live and I’m done walking round in baby step circles in a self involved bubble. WU LYF isn’t that important. So go do what you want to do. If you wanna play together, Play! your talented musicians so don’t waste that. I am bored of the most challenging thing in WU LYF being deluding myself of its relevance. Dirty free, as that show ended it concreted my decision that a change has to come. “Be the change you want to see” said a wise old man.
I’m going to keep on doing what I do; if the time comes in the future where we all truly want to collaborate on something then that door is always going to be open; I have nothing but love for you all.

But I want to live life that’s true to me.

Stay safe
your Brother from another mother…

(I’m gonna stay on email so keep in touch.)”

Peace – Wraith

Birmingham’s Peace are the shit. We’re still waiting for them to make the trip over to the states but that’s not something we’ll hold against them (for now, at least.) “Wraith” sees the young boys climbing further up the lord’s “pop arrangement” ladder embracing a bit tidier more immediately R1 friendly lane.

Kami de Chukwu – Savior

Whoa. Where did Kami de Chukwu come from? Spin the heavy, chillingly soulful “Savior” while we try to figure out what the hell universe this guy just beamed down from.

The Neighbourhood – Let It Go

The Neighbourhood took to the airwaves of Zane Lowe’s Radio 1 show earlier today to debut new track “Let It Go”. Compact, precise & hooky as f “Let It Go” is emblematic of this urban-influenced indie sort of sound being executed at its highest level.

Laid Back – Fly Away (Poolside Edit)

Our friends at Poolside released a freebie today, just in time to chill everyone out as the Thanksgiving break approaches. “Fly Away”, originally released in 1983 off the well received sophomore album Keep Smiling by Laid Back, gets a daytime disco spin and we approve. Poolside is south of the border this weekend for some spot dates before heading back to North America to play Chicago, Toronto and closing the year at the Snow Globe Music Festival in Lake Tahoe, CA.
