VIDEO: Hundred Waters 'Show Me Love'

 'The Moon Rang Like A Bell' is the amazing second album from Hundred Waters.  It begins with the gentle voice of Nicole Miglis, and in just over a minute draws you into the world of this unexpectedly beautiful, and at times ominous album.  This video shows Miglis playing a version that bears closer resemblance to the rendition in their live show that on the album.  The band is about to embark on a whole new adventure with a Remix version of the album and a North American tour starting February 11th.  

Sit back and give this video a few minutes of undivided attention and it will take you places you've never been before.

Digitalism "Second Chance"


Digitalism have been making solid, fun, and interesting music for a good while now.  Every time they release something, you can count on the fact that it's gonna be an intriguing take on modern house music, with a huge disco influence and such beautiful songwriting that you will keep coming back.  This new tune "Second Chance" was debuted on Mixmag and has us very pumped for whatever else they do in 2015.  You can listen to it, and the very cool remixes from Traumer and Kapa here.
