Garden City Movement – My Only Love

Sometimes you just need some soothing electro-pop. Some beats, but also some major key chords:

Garden City Movement are a relatively green (they formed just over a year ago) three piece from Tel Aviv and they’re evoking welcome memories of early Mount Kimbie and James Blake. ‘My Only Love’ is the first taster from their ‘Modern West’ EP, out on 6th April on BLDG5 Records and The Vinyl Factory.

For a longer listen, check in (and chill out) to their Tel Aviv Boiler Room performance:

Pick a Piper – Cinders and Dust (Grown Folk Remix)

Anyone else feel a bit sullen today? A little subdued perhaps? We find that this new remix from Montreal twosome Grown Folk helps light the spark again:

Their rework of ‘Cinders and Dust’, originally sired by Caribou drummer Brad Weber’s Pick A Piper project, is a piece of electro-pop bolstered by some atmospheric, low-end synths. And it’s really good.

We haven’t heard much from Drew and Brendan (the aforementioned Grown Folk) recently, besides some production work for HD’s favourite cloud rappers Main Attrakionz, but this remix plus their EP on San Francisco label Icee Hot, have whet our appetite for more in 2013.

CHVRCHES – Gun

Prefer Vs to Us? Think life should be lived in capital letters? Well you’re probably already a fan of Scottish three-piece CHVRCHES then.

Even if you don’t have the above preferences there’s a lot to like about their accessible-in-a-good-way electro-pop. If ever a tune deserved the tag ‘summer’, then their new single ‘Gun’ is it:

It follows on from their well-received ‘Recover’ EP, the standout tracks of which we’ve handily pulled out for you here:

And, for the Game of Thrones fans amongst you (and pretty much no-one else), here’s a DIY cover of the theme tune they recently knocked up:

It’s good mood music. As in it puts you in a good mood, not well-made scene-setting music. You get the gist.
