Hey Way – “Fast But Slow” // Luke Ramsey

Sitting here, vibing out to the dreamy vibes of Hey Way, I’m almost certain that steel drums have never sounded better. At least not to these winter-weary ears. Let me just play “Fast But Slow” on repeat a few times while I defrost and space out.

From the debut self-titled album from Danish dream-pop/alt/rock/indie duo Hey Way. [Download / Spotify]

M.I.L.K. – “If We Want To”

“If We Want To” is a song about getting it on and not giving a damn about who cares. A perfect soundtrack for a Summer weekend under the sun. But now, come Monday, I like to think of it as the track in your headphones as you walk into work an hour late, hiding your glassy eyes behind salty sunglasses, singing the chorus to your boss as he lays a stack of TPS reports on your desk.  Read more

Kentaur – “Matter & Stone”

When you have a voice like this you don’t need much more than few instruments quietly shuffling their support behind the deep emotion pouring forth. This debut song from Denmark’s Kentaur is the kind of song that can stop you in your tracks when it comes on shuffle. Just lock up your mind with thoughts of and open your heart to feelings. Just go with it.

Mont Oliver – “All Yours”

Sounds like… Mont Oliver are fitting to get 2015 started off with a dance party.  Last year’s stunning and irresistible 19 EP lived in a bit darker territory but “All Yours” kicks up the funk and demands movement. Give in, yo.

Location: Copenhagen, Denmark

Future: More greatness (them). Better swagger (you).

Mont Oliver – “White Sheets”

Music for… taking your swagger game to the next level. Copenhagen’s Denmark follow up the insanely underrated “19” with the perfect jam to continue the Halloween vibe into Fall. Mont Oliver play with a lot of sounds on this jam and perfectly blend all of them. It sounds like nothing else out there today and is exactly why they are my favorite band of the past month. Innovation, attitude, grace, and style, all sounding so damn massive together.

Location: Copenhagen, Denamrk

Future: The ’19’ EP is out for FREE DOWNLOAD on 17th November via Fake Diamond Records.
