(12/1/13) Monty's Catch of the Day - Creep ft. Sia
12/1/2013 8:25:00 AM
CREEP is the Brooklyn-based duo of Lauren Dillard and Lauren Flax, who are also well known for their DJ and production work. Over the past few years, we've played a few singles from Creep that featured amazing vocals from the likes of Tricky, Romy Madley-Croft (of The xx), Nina Sky, and Alejandra De La Deheza (of School of Seven Bells). Well now the band has released their debut full length album entitled Echoes, which not only includes these older tracks but several new ones as well. They have also attracted more fantastic artist to collaborate with, including the one and only Sia who is featured on today's catch. It's a beautiful track called "Dim the Lights" which contains an incredible wall of sound that matches the power of Sia's voice (especially on the chorus). Trust me - this album is a "must have" for 2013! You can hear a sample of Creep's "Dim the ...

(11/24/13) Monty's Catch of the Day - Röyksopp
11/24/2013 8:28:00 AM
Röyksopp will be releasing a new record in December; however, today's "catch" happens to be a "B-side" to the first single. It's called "Something in My Heart (ft. Jamie Irrepressible)", and B-side or not, this could be one of Röyksopp's best songs to date. I know it's a bold statement, considering the Norwegian electronic band has given us gems like "Poor Leno" and "Remind Me", but I stand by it.
This is what their press release said about the upcoming record:
"On December 16th 2013 chart-topping electronic duo Röyksopp present ‘Running To The Sea’ – their first new single since 2011, which is now set for worldwide release following its no.1 chart success in their native Norway. The equally elegant singing on b-side ‘Something In My Heart’ – a melancholy, synth hybrid – is provided by Jamie of cult orchestralpop ensemble The Irrepressibles.
“’Running To The Sea’ and ‘Something In My Heart’ are in essence both ...

(11/17/13) Monty's Catch of the Day - The Weeknd
11/17/2013 8:25:00 AM
This is the third "catch" from The Hunger Games: Catching Fire Soundtrack, and probably my favorite from the album. The Weeknd's "Devil May Cry" is an absolutely beautiful track, and might be better than anything off his Kiss Land album that was released earlier this year. The soundtrack will be available this week, just ahead of the film's release, and contains some of the hottest artists in music right now. You've already heard us play Coldplay and Sia, but I can also tell you that Phantogram, Ellie Goulding, Lorde, and Santigold all contribute amazing work to the LP as well. However, this brand new track from The Weeknd really takes the cake. It's definitely going to be one of the year's finest albums. You can listen to a clip of The Weeknd's "Devil May Cry" in the audio player above. Good things!

(11/10/13) Monty's Catch of the Day - Broken Bells
11/10/2013 8:25:00 AM
Do you remember Broken Bells? They are the super-collaboration composed of DangerMouse (of Gnarls Barkley) and James Mercer (of The Shins), who released their highly successful, self-titled debut album 3 years ago. Well, they're back!!! They will be releasing a brand spankin' new album called After the Disco, which is set to be released on 1/14. Today's catch entitled "Holding On for Life" is the first single off the upcoming LP, and it's a great one. I'd say it's the perfect way to come back after a 3 year break. You can listen to a clip of "Holding On for Life" in the audio player above. Good things!

(11/3/13) Monty's Catch of the Day - Twin Shadow
11/3/2013 8:25:00 AM
After the loss of the legendary Lou Reed last week, several artists have played covers of his Velvet Underground and solo work as a tribute to the iconic musician. This includes today's catch, which is Twin Shadow covering the late great's "Perfect Day". This is a beautiful track filled with heavy emotion from Twin Shadow frontman, George Lewis Jr., and I absolutely love how they made the synths such a big part of the song...absolutely gorgeous. Check out today's catch, "Perfect Day" from Twin Shadow in the video below, and I challenge you not to be moved or get the chills. RIP Lou Reed...you will be missed. Good things!
James Blake's Overgrown LP wins the UK's Mercury Prize
11/3/2013 8:04:00 AM
This year's Mercury Prize goes to James Blake and his album Overgrown. For those of you not familiar with the Mercury Prize, then the best thing to compare it to would be The Grammys "Best Album" award. This is considered the most prestigious award in the UK for music, and James Blake is a winner. Not only does Blake get this high honor, but his album Overgrown saw a 2500% increase in sales (according to Amazon UK) following the announcement of the award. Incredible! Be sure to check out the rescheduled James Blake show at Emo's on 3/24.

(10/27/13) Monty's Catch of the Day - Jeff Sontag
10/27/2013 8:25:00 AM
I happened to stumble upon this artist out of LA named Jeff Sontag, and what caught my attention was his absolutely brilliant cover of AlunaGeorge's "You Know You Like It", which is today's catch. I'm already a huge fan of the original by AlunaGeorge, but I have to say I think Jeff Sontag's version is on another level. His smooth soulful voice sounds absolutely beautiful in front of the ethereal chords of his keyboard. It's not too often when I think a cover is better than the original, but in this case I have to. Now I don't know much about Sontag, but this is what he has as far as a bio goes:
"I was born in Chicago, came out to LA for school, and have been singing since the day NSYNC released their first album. I'm in love with Jennifer Lawrence (if you're reading this, marry me) ...
