My First CD - Lane 8 (ft. Patrick Baker) - acid stag

My First CD with Lane 8

Recently we were all treated to the great new track from San Fran-bred/Germany-based producer Lane 8, it was called ‘Ghost’ and it featured Baltimore singer/songwriter Patrick Baker.

‘Ghost’ is the next track to be pulled from Lane 8‘s upcoming debut album Rise, and we jumped on the line with the man himself, Daniel Goldstein, to ask where his love of music began.

I was 7 years old when the first Backstreet Boys album came out. I’d heard the single on the radio (“Quit Playing Games With My Heart, I believe). My sister and her friends liked their gelled, spiky hair. I simply needed that CD. I had $20 in birthday money saved up, and after a lot of persuasion (and possibly a few tears) my father agreed to take me to Tower Records. As a shy 7-year-old, I can say I was completely overwhelmed in that place (the staff there had tattoos! and face piercings!) and as such I scrambled around a bit desperately, my mind racing and my palms sweating.

Tower, like all record stores I’ve ever been to, was organized alphabetically, which my father had explained to me in the car ride over. Once we got inside I nervously navigated my way to the “B” section and started scanning. I stopped – there was a small display case above the bins, highlighting one particular album. It was a black cover, and in my adrenaline-fuelled daze, I thought I read “Backstreet Boys” at the top of the cover art. I grabbed one and headed to the checkout with a grin on my face, heart pounding in my chest.

We got home and I immediately ripped open the shrink wrap and popped the CD into my sister’s boombox. I pressed play – the first track was an intro. I skipped it. I didn’t recognise the second track. There was only one song I wanted to hear at that moment. The third track began to play – I thought, “this is weird. I think I’ve heard this before.” I flipped the CD to the back to check the tracklist and my heart sank.

I had bought a Blackstreet album. As “No Diggity” blared over my sister’s 3 inch woofers, I crumpled to the floor – I had screwed up, I had wasted my entire savings on a CD that I didn’t even like. I told my father and sister what happened and they started howling like hyenas – indeed, my first attempt to enter the world of music collection was a complete failure.

My father, being the kind man that he is, took me back to Tower Records to exchange the CD that very day. I remember the woman at the counter snickered a bit when my father explained the situation; I suppose it was my first encounter with musical snobbery!

So lucky his dad was a good dude – we can only wonder what type of music Daniel would be making if he had of been forced into Blackstreet

Here is ‘Ghost’ featuring Patrick Baker.

Lane 8‘s debut Rise will hit the shelves on July 17 – pre-order your copy now via iTunes

Between now and November, Lane 8 is embarking on a fairly extensive tour of Europe, Canada and USA – you can find all of those details here

TJH87 – Lost Into The Night (ft. Guy Brown) [New Single]

TJH87 are a nu-disco duo out of Finland who have dropped a kick-ass new tune this week called ‘Lost Into The Night.’ It’s got some really great Cut Copy vibes with its cool retro synths, atmospheric disco beats and the whisper soft vocals of Australian muso Guy Brown, aka Mammals.

Our Man In Berlin - Spirit Down - acid stag

Our Man In Berlin – Spirit Down [New Single]

‘Spirit Down’ is great new track from Perth five-piece Our Man in Berlin, it is also the title-track from their upcoming second EP.

There’s a lot of really nice instrumentation happening on ‘Spirit Down’; the twinkling guitars, the lulling bass-line and those atmospheric sounds create an ideal backdrop for lead singer Haydn Mansell‘s whispering vocals.

Our Man In Berlin‘s Spirit Down EP will be up on iTunes by June 19.

Flume - Some Minds (ft. Andrew Wyatt) - acid stag

Flume – Some Minds (ft. Andrew Wyatt) [New Single]

Flume has just dropped a brand new track called ‘Some Minds’ which features Andrew Wyatt (the voice of Miike Snow) on lyric and vocal duties, and damn is it a killer tune!

The track comes with an incredible Clemens Habicht (Tame Impala, Bloc Party, The Presets) directed music video, that has been filmed in a very empty Sydney Opera House.

Flume is playing two shows at the Sydney Opera House this weekend for Future Classic‘s Vivid LIVE event, but both shows are 100% sold out. Flume will be spending the remainder of 2015 touring the USA and Europe, so when you see those tickets go on sale near you, be sure to grab some.

Seoul - Real June - acid stag

Seoul – Real June [New Single]

Canadian newcomers Seoul have shared another new track today, titled ‘Real June’ it is the last single to be pulled from their upcoming album, I Become A Shade.

‘Real June’ certainly is a step away from its more subdued predecessors, with its uplifting pop-like beats and sing-a-long vocals, showing a slightly brighter side to the Canadian trio’s sound.

I Become A Shade will hit the shelves on June 9, and you can get your pre-order in now through iTunes.


Jinja Safari - Find My Way - acid stag

‘Find My Way’ is the first taste of Jinja Safari‘s upcoming third album, and I can see this song going down really well at the festivals.

Axel Flóvent - Forest Fires EP - acid stag

Ep Streamz: Axel Flóvent – Forest Fires EP

Icelandic newcomer Axel Flóvent has revealed his second EP today, titled Forest Fires it features four enchanting, indie-pop/folk tunes.

Comparisons to Fleet FoxesBon Iver and Ásgeir are well warranted, but Forest Fires does maintain a unique charm that a think a lot of people will really connect with with.

Axel Flóvent‘s second EP will be available from iTunes on June 8th.
