Good Tunes Roundup: Summer Camp, Austra and Milagres
Trying to keep up with all the tip-top tunes that emerge daily is a tricky task. It's only inevitable some slip through the cracks so here's a little golden trio of songs that have been pleasing my ears as of late...
From a band whose name conjures up images of friends singing Kumbaya and toasting marshmallows around a fire, Summer Camp's - 'I Want You' is a surprisingly dark and aggressive venture into the excesses of love and lust, by way of throbbing synths and disconcerting lyrics.

Austra were huge at this year's SXSW so I'm a little late to the game here but Jesus, what a voice. Drawing strong comparisons to Kate Bush, it's an ethereal, soaring presence that transforms a simplistic, brooding track into an operatic anthem. Signed to Domino, their debut album Feel it Break is out May 16th.

Milagres' - ' Glowing Mouth' is a slow-paced, slow-burning but mighty fine indie jaunt all the way from Brooklyn...and it's a free download too, ker-ching!
