Based in Diamond Planet, DD is a blog that seeks out rare gems in both artists and songs.
The New Resistants – Hey New York
The songs that this punk trio offer up are infused with the vivaciousness and energy of NYC. They are repping their city and they are doing a hell find job of it!
George Cosby – Vacant Grace
There is a lot of beauty and emotional vulnerability to me found on this artist from London’s voice and in his unforgettable instrumentals.
Bagarre – Claque Le
Say bonsoir to this French party-making 5-piece who knocked me out with insane beats, irresistible melodies. Their latest EP consists of five tracks in which each member sings one track!
Western Jaguar – Council
A Canadian post-rock artist who has crafted some of the finest soundscapes to pair with immense vocals. His LP Wayfarer is a soundtrack for the soul’s journey.
Zygmunt Day – Red, Red Roses
He is putting out music as both a solo act and with his band the Echo Pressure. So far this year he has gifted us with two perfectly poignant compositions about heart-ache and heart-break. For those who enjoy poetry.
Sour Purr – Stranger of the Night
A London guitar rock band who floored me with their debut EP last year. At the moment they are putting together a bunch of songs for a follow-up and all their recent demos on the Soundcloud have been just killing it!
Dusty Pink – The Robots (Kraftwerk cover)
A cocktail of bodacious beats, rock riffs, scintillating synths all brought together to create a a soundscape of irresistible dance-floor jams that will sweep you off your feet!
Lianne Le Havas – Fairtytale
Just started listening to her and her vocals are so soothing and sublime. Her latest Fairytale is a sweeping blue sky (not a cloud in the entire sky) type of pastoral pop. You need to listen to this!
Egyptian Blue – High the Hyena
Kaleidoscopic psych-blues from England. This British 4-piece create monster melodies and an intense atmospheric sound that will draw you in.
BRUTALISM – Amulets
Tropical No Rave trio from Washington DC. Their sharp sound grabs you and refuses to let go.
YIpiOk – Tango
Energetic and bouncing on the walls type pop from this London modern pop duo. I was a fan after listening to Tango–one of the most catchiest tunes I have ever heard!
