Charlie XCX is back

Do we care that Charli XCX is back? I’m not sure, she doesn’t fit into any neat box but, then again, I think that’s admirable for a pop artist. Also she just set up her own label Vroom Vroom, she’s in the driving seat of her own career and I straight up respect that. Her new track is also entitled Vroom Vroom and is produced with Sophie from PC Music.

 
On a different, there’s also some solid rock tracks out from Parquet Courts and Eagulls, check them out –

The New Old

I’ve come a real sucker for cover versions lately, you may have seen my post on James Blake’s version of Sound of Silence. Well, it turns out Natalie Prass has taken a leaf of his book too. Check it out below along with some other interesting covers that have been floating around of late, including The Pains of Being Pure at Heart’s cover of James’ classic Laid featuring vocals from Jen Goma –

Happy BTTF Day

back-to-the-future-2

Well, I was hardly going to let this momentous day pass by without posting something. Today is the day that Marty McFly and Doc Brown (and Jennifer) travelled to in the ‘future’ in the 1990 Back to the Future II film. Yes, we are without hoverboards and self-tieing shoelaces but don’t worry they’ll be with us soon. I know a guy who knows a guy. In the meantime, let’s enjoy some of the movie that got our imaginations running back in 1990.
