What recipe do you use to make a positively effervescent song even more happy-go-lucky? Add one part Gigamesh, easy peasy. The Minnesotan DJ transforms Grouplove’s iconic “Tongue Tied” (yes, the song from the Apple commercial) from a youthful sing-along to a downright dirty dance party.
Scissor Sisters are back with a new Calvin Harris-produced single called “Only The Horses”, and it sounds exactly how you’d imagine a Scissor Sisters single produced by Calvin Harris to sound.

Folk Yeah! Haha I'm really feeling the folk music today, this is actually the favorite for today. Denver folk-rock trio The Lumineers describe themselves a bit differently, detailing their unit as “born out of sorrow, powered by passion, ripened by hard work.”. If you are looking for a sweet and simple stripped down indie folk song that will lift your spirits look no further, this song will make your day, I left it last for a reason.
I rarely post folk songs, actually I don't think i have posted one single folk song, but this is definitely an exception. Now you may be asking, 'you're posting a folk cover of Paper Planes?!', why yes, yes I am , it is incredible.

Spring Offensive are an Oxford 5 piece boy band with guitars that would make any chick feel like they’re being sung about. Worry Fill My Heart is a superb piece of storytelling, featuring interesting arrangements and harmonies, not a million miles away from the likes of Dry The River and certainly of an excellent standard.
Two of the members of the successful Queensland pop-band Operator Please, cousins Chris Holland and Tim Commandeur, have started a new project called Colour Coding.Their first track, “Perfect,” isn’t far from synth-pop perfection. An uplifting and whistle-friendly anthem, this gives us just a taste of what’s to come from Colour Coding.
