I ♥ NY

Just back in Stockholm from a great trip to New York. Inspired of the Big Apple in all kind of ways, I wanted to give you some new music from the New York area.

The Golden Filter is not new to me, but the remix they do of Polly Scattergood’s “Please Don’t Touch” is quite new to me. You can hear the Golden Filter sound driving the song forward. Also hear out the original, even if Polly is from London.

I also ran across this odd Brooklyn based fellow called Bad Brilliance in New York. When he’s not harassing people at fashion shows he makes interesting music. Not like everyone else…

Bad Brilliance – Texas Ugly As Hell

Bad Brilliance – Ball Park Hot Dog

Another interesting act from Brooklyn are Here We Go Magic that are quite indie in a good way. A nice sound and along with that, a nice arty video produced by Snejina Latev:

Here We Go Magic – Fangela

Here We Go Magic – Tunnelvision

This next group I found in the city that never sleeps was this amazing group with a very odd sound. Swimming In Speakers is a duo with multi-instrumentalist Chris Clarke and lead vocalist Meadow Eliz. Maybe it will not get to you at the first listening but give it a little more time because it will hit you. So take your time! Support these newcomers by purchasing their EP here.

Swimming In Speakers – Serve Them Well

Swimming In Speakers – In Knowing

The last group I will write about aren’t from New York, they are from Hamburg in Germany, but they have just released their latest single on New York based label Coco Machete. Their name is FUKKK OFFF.

FUKKK OFFF – Love Me Hate Kiss Me Kill Me

And as a bonus, a tribute to the city of New York with a New York Re-Dub:

Mondo Disco vs. SirBilly – Extended Dreams (New York Re-Dub)
