Life Model – ‘Just You’

life model-twin peaks-just you-profile-pic-sized

Scotland’s Life Model have hit the already-dreamy do-wop number ‘Just You (and I)’ with an extra helping of fuzz while leaving all the sappy high school drool in tact. The song comes from David Lynch’s unassailable  Twin Peaks, which, in addition to generating its own highly influential, award-winning soundtrack, has been fodder for decades of covers. Fans can catch Life Model in Northumberland at the Out Of The Trees X festival early January. [By Dave Lytton]

La Casa Al Mare – ‘Sunflowers’ [Video]

La casa al mare-sunflowers-album-cover-art1

The two months wait since La Casa Al Mare‘s debut may seem like a sneeze in the midst of our current ‘shoegaze revival’ and the return of long-slumbering genre pioneers to studios and stages. Graciously, the Italian wunderkinder have delivered another single, ‘Sunflowers,’ a densely-textured noise escape to sate our ear. It’s paired with the contrasting ‘Dagger’-esque ringing, swelling sweetness of ‘Tonight or never,’ and a video that takes the literal approach to kaleidoscopic visuals. [By Dave Lytton]

The Foreign Resort – ‘Flushed’

The darkly polished energy of The Foreign Resort now has an appropriately emotionally provocative music video (that takes us to the edge of ‘sfw’) for their anthemic hit ‘Flushed’. Denmark’s post-punk new wave act The Foreign Resort will soon return to the states for a coast-to-coast visit (details below). How whips and leather will play into their US tour is yet to be seen, but fans will expect to be swept along with some of the most effective new wave this side of the oughts.

In addition to launching a fresh tour, The Foreign Resort frontman Mikkel B. Jakobsen will join DKFM to debut a monthly show based around on-the-road interviews of bands that The Foreign Resort tour with, a list which includes heavyweights Swervedriver and fellow Danes The Raveonettes . Premieres 24-9-14 3 pm Eastern / 8 pm GMT / Noon PDT, with a repeat Sunday night following New Tracks Weekend. [By Dave Lytton]
