STL's Weekly Listening Post (Week Ending 16/1)

There's an awful lot of new music out there...loads like. 

So, with that in mind, here's a little round up of the new tunes which have pleased STLs ears over the last 7 days.

It's far from exhaustive but you may just find something you enjoy and as ever, suggestions are very welcome.

Million Young - 'On On'  

Tucking into Replicants, the new album from Florida based Million Young, has left my ears feeling warm and fuzzy and 'On On' is a stuttering scorcher of a track which seems custom made for a thousand car ads. 
Listen now before you get sick of hearing it along side the latest Toyota model...

Oh Land - 'Son Of A Gun' 

Danish popstress Oh Land has been lighting up the blogosphere in recent months with her brand of electro-pop splendour, and this is the opening track from her excellent debut EP.

Moths - 'Blisters

17-year-old Jack Colleran has been attracting a bit of attention lately thanks to these sprawling electro numbers, with Nialler9 profiling him during the week. 17? I could barely tie my shoe-laces at that age, let alone make music this good.

Squarehead - '(-_-)' (Adebisi Shank Cover) 

Anything these Rathmines lads touch as of late seems to turn to gold. This track will feature on the upcoming Quarter Inch Quompilation, which will see a dozen artists covering their favourite songs of 2010. After hearing Kid Karate's brilliant cover of Tinie Tempah's 'Pass Out', we now have this trio adding sun-kissed vocals and a washed out haze to Adebisi's little creation.

British Sea Power - 'Mongk II' 

A jazzed up version of Mongk (which originally appeared on the Zeus EP), from the eternal cult band's latest - Valhalla Dancehall. Valhalla is no "Do You Like Rock Music?" but it's growing on me with ever listen and this driven straight up number is a definite highlight..."I don't believe in you but you believe in me"

This Other Kingdom - 'Tears'

A touching piano-led lament from these very new Dublin newcomers.
  Tears by This Other Kingdom 

Battle for 2nd Place - 'Say it ain't So' 
Mayo songstress Orla Prendergast elevates this slice of power pop from the Glasgow four-piece, with soaring, sweeping vocals.
