New Track: Clementine & The Galaxy – “Heart Shaped Box”

 

New space-pop duo Clementine & The Galaxy is stirring up quite a buzz of late. Some folks may recognize lead singer Julie Hardy as having performed as part of the dazzling miss Ellie Goulding’s band.

Yesterday, the two released a new single called “Heart Shape Box,” which is a breathy electro-pop joy of a time. The vocals give us hints of Bjork and Florence Welch – nothing to mess with there. This definitely needs to be on a soundtrack somewhere. Awesome vibes.

With four NYC dates coming up in the next month (see below) – including an invite only video release party that we’ll be sure to be snooping around at – the momentum is clearly just building.

Tour Dates
9/28 – Arlene’s Grocery – New York, NY (w/ Futurist)
10/09 – Flux Studios – New York, NY (Video Release Party!)
10/16 – Alphabet Lounge – New York, NY (CMJ)
10/18 – Rockwood Music Hall – New York, NY (CMJ)

Earlier today, miss Janelle Monae unveiled a new tune from a fellow Wondaland artist Roman GianArthur. And man, is the guy a talent. The above is his new track that mashes together D’Angelo’s “Send It On” with Radiohead’s “High & Dry.” Freakin’ sexy. What the hell.

Dude sounds like a blend between Van Hunt, Bilal, and some fresh ‘n new radio R&B youngin’. Can’t compete with that. Oh, we mention that ol’ boy over here also produced the track? No biggie.

Amerigo Gazaway recently released an awesome tribute called Bizarre Tribe: A Quest to The Pharcyde. As one might guess, the project mashes up a hip hop golden era favorites A Tribe Called Quest with The Pharcyde.

More specifically, the approach was “pairing select Pharcyde vocals with re-orchestrated productions created from the original Jazz, Soul and Funk recordings sampled throughout ATCQ’s extensive career.” The result is some proper head nod goodness.

Below, you can hear and download the whole project. And above, catch the video for “Runnin.” Never ever gets old.
