Old pop, new pop.

I’ve been diving into old hard drives and boxes of CDs and been rediscovering some really great music and none so than Susanne Sundfør (David, I KNOW you’ll already be into this). Her Ten Love Songs album is pretty faultless – lots of Robyn energy with a smattering of ABBA – and this is a cracker, but I could’ve picked any of them.

Introducing … Coco

How beautiful is this? I’ve been looking for some guitar driven music to love and coming up short. This is right up my street and I love it. Coco are … well, nobody know’s too much really. Their ‘about’ section on Spotify doesn’t give much away either. Have a spin through the 3 tracks and let us know what you think.

Sufjan Stevens – Video Game

It’s difficult to know what I really expected the next Sufjan Stevens song to sound like following the epic 12 minute+ ‘America’. The track list for the new album dropping at the end of Sept. was shared recently showing that ‘America’ will close the 15 track album out.

This track ‘Video Game’ will feature as third track on the album. And it couldn’t much further from America. The video features Tik Tok sensation Jalaiah Harmon performing her viral ‘renegade’ dance … which doesn’t really fit but of course in context does. How did that conversation go ‘Hey Jalaiah, do you want to star in a music video for a song about not wanting to star in music videos?’

For the avoidance of doubt … I love this.
