Kitsune America

These tracks all come fresh from Kitsune’s recently released America album. The album itself features some of the latest talent from the US, calling on a diverse mix of genres in doing so. It’s enjoyable stuff, and definitely worth a listen. As always, these are my pick of the bunch…

 

St. Lucia – Before The Dive

 

 

Oliver – Walk With Me 

 


Frances Rose – Vampire

 

Childish Gambino – Heartbreak (Them Jeans Remix) 

 

You can get the whole album here.

St Lucia

My treat from you today is a little gem by New York based artist St Lucia. All eyes on you is the lead single from St Lucia’s debut EP release, and has been made available for a free download here.
With the charts these days cluttered by the likes Pitbull, Chipmunk and someone called Dev, it is especially refreshing to hear St Lucia’s slice of genuine pop gold. This track has a definite 80’s feel to it – with an extended saxophone solo, a repetitive chorus and synthesised keyboard sounds throughout. This song gets better and better every time I play it. I particularly enjoy the noises at 1:10 that remind me of All Saints single Pure Shores. So jog on Pitbull and take that bloody Dev girl with you…
