Chomp down on some spicy ear food courtesy of this month’s instalment of Music Feeds Faves. Tasty, nutritious and high in protein, this fresh musical produce has been lovingly hand-picked by the team at Music Feeds, slow roasted overnight and served up hot with an attractive garnish. Sink your teeth in below.
Gallant – ‘Gentelman’
If you’re short on the feels this week, Gallant is here with a smouldering new track and video sure to stir ~all kinds of feels~ in you. Gentleman is as tender and romantic as it is steamy and seductive. And yeah, it’s pretty damn steamy and seductive. That goes for the video too, Gallant’s soaring falsetto – which is at once vulnerable and teaming with strength – harmonised on screen as we circle around his gracefully moving, oiled up body. Gentleman is the first single from Gallant’s forthcoming second album due out later this year. 2018’s heating up. / Nastassia Baroni, Managing Editor
The Lulu Raes – ‘Fade Away’
Feast your eyes and ears on ‘Fade Away’, the sumptuous new indie hymn from Sydney’s The Lulu Raes. The music video for the piano-laced, string-drenched, horn-adorned toe-tapper is every bit as cinematic and soul-warming as the song itself, filled with eye-popping aerial sweeps of the lads adventuring through the rustic, breathtaking Aussie countryside at sunset.
The tune has been sliced off the pop n’ rollers’ forthcoming debut album LULU, which is out on May 4th. You can pre-order the disc right here, cop a squiz at their album tour dates here, or take fresh bop ‘Fade Away’ for a spin below. / Emmy Mack, Senior Writer
Flowertruck – ‘Come Across’
Sydney outfit Flowertruck recently released their debut album Mostly Sunny, and it’s already one of my favourite records of 2018.
Pairing an underlying feeling of restlessness and anxiousness with a spine-tingling piano melody that just won’t stop looping in my head, ‘Come Across’ closes the album with a sense of triumph, but also the realisation that people might not see you how you’d like them to see you.
It’s got a bit of a daggy vocal refrain towards the end, but let’s just consider it a quirky bonus. / Tom Williams, News Editor
Azealia Banks – ‘Anna Wintour’
It’s been an incredibly rocky road, both personally and professionally, for Harlem native Azealia Banks since her explosive debut back in 2011, but her new jam ‘Anna Wintour’ sees a potential return to glory. Sitting on that house beat that she feels most comfortable, Banks packs more versatility and diversity in four-and-a-half minutes than most rappers do in an entire album. Her distinctive singing voice helps the first half of the song flow sensually, before erupting into muffled scream vocals and then treating us to the rapid-fire raps she became know for. Banks is going to need more than one song to reclaim her previous fame and prestige, but we’ll be damned if ‘Anna Wintour’ isn’t a fantastic start. / Jackson Langford, Staff Writer
Hatchie – ‘Sugar & Spice’
Brisbane artist Hatchie knows her way around crafting a pop song and is responsible for some of the dreamiest, most sparkling pop tunes of the last year with tracks ‘Try’ and ‘Sure’. Now we can add ‘Sugar & Spice’ to that growing list. Reminiscent of a hit by The Corrs, ‘Sugar & Spice’ is light, euphoric and imminently feel-good.
The song is the title track of Hatchie’s anticipated debut EP which will be released on Friday 25th May, after which the Brisbane artist will head out on her first Australian headline tour, this July. / Nastassia Baroni, Managing Editor
Jeff Buckley – ‘Mofo Pin’ (Basenji Bootleg)
I wouldn’t normally be praising someone for remixing a Jeff Buckley song, but Sydney producer Basenji has done ‘Mojo Pin’ justice by letting its tidal swells of JB vocals carry you into some chill house beats and cloudy synths.
It’s a perfect bedtime accompaniment, really. / Tom Williams, News Editor
Dance Gavin Dance – ‘Midnight Crusade’
Gavin has returned to dance again in fresh monster jam, ‘Midnight Crusade’. The California post-hardcore crew’s fresh blast of riff mania shows off the dual-vocal assault of Tilian Pearson’s blazing clean pipes and Jon Mess’s dankly demented throat-tearers to perfection. And what would a DGD single be without a spectacularly cooked video to match? Bonus points for an ending that djents. / Emmy Mack, Senior Writer
