Four Music Releases You May Have Missed Because Of Daft Punk’s Album

With all the hullabaloo of Daft Punk‘s much anticipated 4th studio album releasing two weeks ago, it would have been quite easy to forget that there is always quality music coming out.

Here are four great musical releases that you may have missed amidst the Daft Punk overload (not that that’s a bad thing):

Tesla Boy’s Album The Universe Made of Darkness [Beatport|iTunes] Their second album since their debut album came out in 2010, The Universe Made of Darkness is much welcomed by many. And man, does it give me chills. It has that classic synthpop feel with that electro-funk vibe throughout. Not restricting themselves to any tempo, this album has that perfect live-band feel.

As with most Tesla Boy music, this sounds like it came out of a time capsule from the 80′s, something they always manage to do flawlessly. Top it off with Anton Sevidov’s lush vocals, and you’re back in 1985, McFly.

Classixx’s Debut Album Hanging Gardens [Beatport|iTunes] After years of releasing singles, remixing a ton and being remixed by everyone from Treasure Fingers to Wolfgang Gartner, Classixx has finally come out with a proper debut album. This is one of those rare albums that you can listen to doing just about anything; whether it be dancing, driving, working out, eating, sleeping, seducing or doing your taxes. It’s basically an everything album.

Russ Chime’s single “Turn Me Out” [iTunes Pre-Order] (Note: This was originally released May 20th, but was taken down for re-release later this month.)
A name synonymous with all things disco and groovy, Russ Chimes released this single recently and it took me on an awesome ride. The insanely beautiful melody immediately catches your attention, and the very simple, repetitive vocals keep you singing the lyrics, be it in your head our out loud.

Disclosure’s Debut Album Settle [iTunes] While this may not have been as overlooked as the other three, it’s still worth mentioning. Why? Because Disclosure, that’s why.

With a sound that some have dubbed a “house and garage hybrid,” Disclosure’s debut album includes already-well-known singles “White Noise,” and “Latch (feat Sam Smith).” This is the grooviest kind of music to dance to right now.

Ultimate pool party music? Yes.

Bonus: Baauer did a bitchin remix of one of the album’s songs!

  1. [...] 3. Disclosure – Confess To Me feat. Jessie Ware [Beatport | iTunes] What’s not to like about Disclosure? Don’t worry, that was a rhetorical question. After letting singles like “White Noise,” “Latch feat. Sam Smith,” and “When A Fire Starts To Burn” sink in, I definitely found “Confess To Me” as another great song that can easily stand out as a single aside from the album. The synth is definitely on the weirder side of things as far as their normal material, but Jessie Ware’s vocals ties it all together into a great, yet interesting, musical journey.
