Dots Jukebox: New Music Part 4

Posted on the 26 June 2014 by Music Vstheworld @musicvstheworld

As part of the run-up to my 100th Dots Jukebox, I wanted to do something a little bit different. I asked my music loving friends on Twitter to suggest their favorite song by a new artist (or the most recent they can think of), asking them to do so secretly. I compiled all suggestions, and instead of the normal Dots Jukebox evening, I’ve written a one line review of every song and will be revealing them over the course of two days.

2013 saw the release of The Knife by Arrows of Love, and that is @aisfornala‘s new music choice. They released their debut album Everything’s Fucked in April of this year.

DOTTY VIEW: A song that builds, with soft harmonies, melancholic vocals, compelling guitar and a sudden blast of immense anger at its finale. Have a listen here…

Next up, we have a song selected by @instantkarma80 – he chose Back to Land by Wooden Shjips, from the album of the same name, which was released in November 2013

DOTTY VIEW: This song is a balance of light and dark, upbeat and easy going, dense and simple, all rolled into one. Check it out…

@substandardnerd suggested Tempest by Lucius, from their critically acclaimed 2013 debut album Wildewoman.

DOTTY VIEW: Soaring synths, somersaulting vocals, contrasting beats and hopeful lyrics. Complete loveliness! Have a listen right here…

To be continued…
