MATT CORBY – RESOLUTION (Alt/Folk – Australia)

Matt Corby

Australian singer songwriter Matt Corby recently premiered his new song “Resolution” and to say this release is highly anticipated is an understatement! Written in a little dingy LA apartment earlier this year, this is yet another beautiful tune from the young dreamy-eyed artist, showcasing his powerful vocals and amazing songwriting talent.

With already four independent EPs under his belt, Matt Corby scored a major hit in 2011 with his stunning single “Brother” and 2012 saw his cover of The Black Keys “Lonely Boy” receive millions on views on YouTube.

“Resolution” is the first taste of Matt Corby’s forthcoming debut album, which should be released before the end of the year. For more info, check out his official site or Facebook. Buy the music on

THE BLACK KEYS – EL CAMINO (Rock/Blues – US)

The Black Keys

Rock duo The Black Keys recently released their eighth studio album, and arguably best album to date, El Camino, via Nonesuch Records. Helmed by guitarist Dan Auerbach and drummer Patrick Carney, The Black Keys find inspiration in Mississippi blues classics and mid-1960s psychedelic rock.

Recorded in Nashville, El Camino was co-produced and co-written by Danger Mouse, who also collaborated with the band on previous album Brothers. This album is more straightforward and uptempo than its predecessor, packing powerful riffs and nice grooves in its 11 tracks. No slow jams or power ballads here, just 38 minutes of unadulterated rock energy!

El Camino makes for a great listen in the comfort of your home but it will make for an even better live show. Propelled by pouding drums and bouncy riffs, every track is its own little energy ball and will no doubt incite frenetic dancing.

THE BLACK KEYS – BROTHERS (Blues/Rock – US)

The Black Keys

Hailing from Akron, Ohio, The Black Keys is a blues-rock duo consisting of singer and guitarist Dan Auerbach and drummer Patrick Carney. Formed in 2001, the band finds inspiration in Mississppi blues classics and mid-1960s psychedelic rock.

Over the past eight years, The Black Keys have proven to be a very prolific band with seven albums released, that is almost one every year. One of their trademarks is their preference for simple, lo-fi recording techniques. They refuse to use big-name studios and do most recording, producing, and mixing themselves. They have however often collaborated with Danger Mouse, who, incidentally, happened to be the producer behind their biggest single to date “Tighten Up” (taken off their last album, Brothers, released in May 2010).

Grammy-winning producer and composer Danger Mouse packed some nice grooves and smooth guitars into this soulful jam and it just went through the roof. The song reached number one on the Alternative Songs and Rock Songs charts and has been licensed to appear in the video game FIFA 11, the television program Gossip Girl, and a Subaru commercial… Other standout tracks on The Black Keys’ last album include “Ten Cent Pistol”, “Too Afraid To Love” and “The Only One”.
