Galician Indie Pop Conquers The Loop

The first release from brand new imprint Garibaldi Records, ‘A Amizade’ (A Friendship), by Galician intimate songwriter Emilio José (not to be confused with the romantic ballad monger from the seventies) tops our loop this week.

And the first batch of 2011 new releases is arriving with new entries by Jonsi ; Akron/Family; Danielson and Lil Wayne Feat. Cory Gunz . And brand new tracks by PJ Harvey and the return of Timbaland & Missy Elliott teaming up again for the first offering of Timbaland’s Thursdays. The producer follows the successful steps of KanYe’s GOOD Fridays by giving away every Thursday a new track for his fans.

You can check the loop in full here.

PJ Harvey Heads The First Loop Of The Year

After a long six week hiatus preparing our end of the year review, the first loop of the year is ready. Mixing the most interesting songs we’ve missed over this period with our usual selection of up and coming new releases, Rober Award favourite PJ Harvey is the first number one of 2011 with ‘Written On The Forehead”, the first track from her new, politically tinged album ‘Let England Shake”, anticipating another 180 degrees change in the ever evolving style of Dorset’s finest songwriter.

High profile new releases by this year’s crop of Rober nominees including KanYe West & Jay-Z; Beach House; Gorillaz; Gil Scott-Heron -remixed by Jamie XX- and Best Coast go hand by hand with promising new talent such as Emilio José ; Anna Calvi; Cloud Nothings and Dirty Beaches . Plus some of the most awaiting returns of the season (Go-Team!; Raekwon; R.E.M; Lykke Ly; Hercules & The Affair: Adele; Mogwai and Ducktails) being premiered.
