25 – â™«Â Baby Monster – Mr. SuccessÂ / These guys snuck in with a jam that just kept getting better with each listen. Oooooh ooooo ooooo!
24 – â™«Â The Weeknd â€“ House Of Balloons/Glass Table GirlsÂ / Dark, dirty, and not for public consumption. But damn if I can’t get enough.
23 – â™«Â Motopony – King of DiamondsÂ / Should be higher up on the list but with another Motopony track below I am basically sneaking this track in. An amazing song.
Ummm.. so this is like the best thing I’ve heard in a loong time. Things I’ve Never Told You are an East London trio who started out making music together by soundtracking the gay porn series Indie Boyz. After being asked to tone down their jams a bit “so people couldÂ concentrateÂ on the fucking” they formed the band as an outlet for the real stuff. Now we get toÂ concentrateÂ on the dancing! And it’s going to be hard not to. First single “Happiness” is instant groove-juice, slipping around my limbs and pulling them in a variety of funky ways. Can we get this on a karaoke machine soon? Aside from a total party starter, that chorus is epic sing-along material. A true love song.
“Neighbor” is the best unrequited gay love story set to elastic dance music I’ve heard in ages. Instant finger snapping and head bobbing ensueÂ every timeÂ I hear it. If you have a neighbor named James I highly recommend you play this song at high volume.
Aside from opening for Kele last year, Things I Never Told You are quite unknown and still toiling away in the London scene. I hear their live show is something to behold so catch that if you can. With tracks like this in their sets I’d be really surprised if they don’t start filling up bigger venues soon.
