These are some of them:
Foy Vance - Joy Of Nothing
Although we have not heard from Foy Vance in 6 years - album wise - he has been forever touring and has released an EP entitled "The Melrose EP".
This song is actually from Foy's up-coming second album "Joy Of Nothing" to which this is the title track.
What a track it is too. Foy's vocals are always incredible but with that effortless style he has and the harmonising 'oos' this track is just so beautiful. I am honestly hooked to this. Whilst waiting on the album coming out, you can purchase this track from iTunes for 99p.
City and Colour - Of Space and Time
Next up is the man himself (Dallas Green) City and Colour with the heart wrenchingly beautiful "Of Space and Time"
This songs drum introduction just sets it off entirely. I am a huge fan of this mans work but, after his previous album "Little Hell" I seriously doubted that he could top it. Although it looks like I may be wrong. With the drums being followed up by his soft - yet powerful - vocals and a burst of acoustic guitar, it leaves you with shivers going down your spine and a strange feeling of going weak at the knees. This song captures everything that is good and pure about this mans music. This is one of the tracks on the up-coming newest addition "The Hurry and The Harm" coming June 2nd and is available for pre-order now.
Frank Turner - Four Simple Words
This little gem, is one of the latest instalments from none other than the magnificent, Frank Turner.
This song is from his latest album "Tape Deck Heart"
With the chorus line and the four simple words being "I want to dance!" how could you not love this song. It is truly awesome and I will explain why 1) It gets you dancing. 2) It's so Punk Rock and 3) It's Frank Turner Mother Fu... Ok, so I may have got a bit carried away, but that's what this song is like. It is honestly like just getting really carried away with the music. I love it! Just about as much as I love the album.
Junip - Line Of Fire
This track is an odd one. I don't mean because of the video, which believe me is pretty odd. No, it's mainly because I didn't expect this one to be as big as it actually is in the public eye.
Although they won't be breaking the 'UK Top 40' anytime soon (and I'm glad) Junip have been getting played in a lot more shops etc. as soundtracks to peoples day to day life. I am very glad of this, because Junip deserve to be more recognised by the masses. Especially with their unique sound of synths, soft drums, acoustic guitars and all topped off with José González effortlessly incredible vocals. Although - as I stated before - I don't want them to end up topping the charts to the point they are over played.
This song is from Junip's newest, second and self titled album "Junip"
Bring Me The Horizon - Anti-Vist
This last one is not for the faint of heart.
I do love a bit of metal every now and then and Bring Me The Horizon's new album is just that. This track is probably one of - if not - the hardest tracks on the album. Overall their fourth and newest album "Sempiternal" is amazing. Not just for metal fans, but for music fans across the board. Like I say though, don't say I didn't warn you about it being hard.
This track is the right amount of thrash with just the most amazing beat-down to break it all up. I would also watch out if you are easily offended, this one is pretty sweary. That's what makes it so incredible though. You can just stick it on and have the power to walk through large crowds knowing that if anyone was to pick on you, you would have this at the back of you to spur you on. Well worth the listen.
