Aaaaand we’re back! In a few days it’ll be business as usual but until then enjoy this explosive collaboration between Rustie and Danny Brown…. It gets loud.
Hey guys, sorry for the inactivity :( My final year at university has gotten the better of me and unfortunately this means I’ve struggled to keep up to date with new releases. As part of this im conducting a questionnaire on music promotion and would really really, really, appreciate your responses, it should only take 3 mins and would mean the world to me.

To all those in the same boat of me I wish you good luck and the second this is all over HCM will be back up and running with music to accompany your best summer ever!
I’m a moron and forgot to link the song when I last posted it. Here it is again… enjoy it!
This offering is from the very promising Zella Day. A visit to her Soundcloud will show only one other track but she’s readying new material to release to the unsuspecting public and “Sweet Ophelia” is the first of hopefully many songs. This solid debut thrives on the rising instrumental that gives Zella the perfect platform to blow you away with her stunning vocals; if the rest of her material is like this then we’re surely looking at a star in the making.
Here’s a slice of indie pop perfection from one of our favorite new acts COIN. This is the sound of a band who are destined for big things and you’d be forgiven for assuming that they hadn’t already achieved that, “It’s Okay” could easily be a smash summer hit.
Show these guys some support by liking their page and in return you can download this track for free. Lovely stuff.
The last track we posted by Boston girl/boy duo MVSCLES was the dreamy “Somethin” which went down a storm. The follow up to that is this delightful number called “Game.”
The lyrics center around relationship woes and contrasts heavily with the music that couldn’t be more upbeat; the playful bassline skips it’s way throughout the track before culminating in an almighty crescendo that catches me off guard every time.
Show your support and head over to their Bandcamp to download this track on a pay what you like basis.
Brooklyn’s soon to buzzy again act Great Good Fine Ok has just unleashed a monster of a new single in “Not Going Home”. This sparking synth-pop hit in the making, has all the right parts to make these guys stars. The falsetto-filled chorus is lightyears above pretty much anything you have heard this year.
While I’m still struggling to escape the spectacular hold of “Out Of My Mind”, Tove Lo's crunching new single “Not On Drugs” will surely be my antidote. It's sexy, revealing, and huge. Who has not experienced a complete out of body feeling of love? That's right, you all have.
The Swedish artist has proven already that she is full of hits and 2014 will surely be hers.
Her debut EP, Truth Serum, will be out March 3rd..
Everyone’s feel-good remixer RAC is set to release part 1 of his debut album Strangers on March 3rd, and we can now hear it’s first offering, “Tear You Down”. Featuring the wholesome vocals of recent Golden Globe winner Alex Ebert, the joyous, shining cut is the perfect piece of music to demonstrate the diverse and consistently fun talents of André Allen Anjos.
The full album will be ready on April 1st.
I can’t say I know too much about Olsen other than the fact he’s a Leeds based producer that appears to specialize in making laid-back electronic music. “Together” is no exception, this collaboration with the Italian vocalist Mark Borgazzi is just so easy to listen to, I can’t wait to see what Olsen does next.
