‘La Plage’ feat. Bipolar Sunshine – Murkage/’Rats’ – Rainy Milo
I’ve been considering re-naming this blog to ‘Staying In’. I’m either getting boring, lazy – or both. My attitude needs to change ASAP. Thankfully I’ve retained my enthusiasm for new music. Here are a couple of tracks I’m enjoying at the moment.
La Plage feat. Bipolar Sunshine – Murkage
Further niceness from Manchester-based Murkage with their new release ‘La Plage’. Their upfront, revolution-inducing lyricism combines well with the melodic vocals of Mancunian artist of the moment, Bipolar Sunshine. They add a controlled feel to the track, particularly when comparing it to previous Murkage releases such as ‘Torches’. This is not a bad thing. It’s what makes you sit up and really think: OK, now they’re getting serious.
Check the audio here, which is now available on Murkage’s Soundcloud page. Also watch out for the ‘La Plage’ video, coming soon.
Rats – Rainy Milo
Her accent is prevalent, so much so I want to go to London right now, while her tone is just lovely. I cannot get enough of this; it evokes memories of travelling around the city and the 2 London boys I thought I loved (not at the same time). Released on the 21st of this month, it’s available for download on iTunes.
