Daily Round-Up For July 7, 2013
Hello sweet readers! Welcome to the Daily Round-Up, redOrbit’s collection of all of the most important and most entertaining news from the worlds of popular and independent music. Let’s jump right into the news, shall we?
Oh So Fresh Music managed to stumble upon a mysterious and anonymous artist by the name of As I Am. Not much is known about the project, but a new EP was released under the name today. Oh So Fresh describes them as innovative, expressive instrumentals that come together to form beautiful works of art. If this sounds like something up your alley, then go give it a listen! The link is at Oh So Fresh Music.
I can’t get enough of Lana Del Ray’s track Young and Beautiful that she wrote for the Great Gatsby movie. And apparently, the rest of the music world can’t either, because yet another remix has been released for the song! Today the producer in question is popular and well-respected DJ Kaskade! He puts a special spin on the track that I think you’ll enjoy. The Dancing Astronaut put up a good description of the song as well. If you would like to read that and listen to the song, just hit the link and head back to the Dancing Astronaut.
Because news can never come enough in advance, rumors are already flying around for headliners for the 2014 Glastonbury Festival. Among the names mentioned are Fleetwood Mac, Depeche Mode, and Elbow. To read the full story, just follow the link back to The Line of Best Fit.
Disclosure and Jessie Ware recently came together for a performance in London’s historic venue the Boiler Room. They put on a seriously good live show! If you care to see video of the two up-and-comers making sweet music, just hit the link back to The Line of Best Fit.
And in a special treat for all you pop lovers out there, two of pop’s better songwriters, Ryan Tedder and Ellie Goulding, have come together to create a new single! I’ve previously been candid about my unabashed love of Ellie Goulding and her crazy-good ear for hooks. And Ryan Tedder of OneRepublic has repeatedly shown his worth as a songwriter and a producer. Together they have made a nice little piece of solid synth pop, which will presumably feature on a new Ellie Goulding record. Even the hip-hop heads at 2dopeboyz digged it! You can check it out there.
And that is all the news we have for today folks! Hope you have a great day! You can check out my other articles here. Have questions, comments, suggestions, or love?
