Every Friday, four new music picks from music blogs worldwide are published as part of my Day & Night pages. Follow Day & Night on Twitter or Facebook. The magazine is out today in print with every copy of the Irish Independent so pick it up to see my full internet-heavy section as well as the rest of the mag.

Trails And Ways

An Oakland, Californian quartet who describe themselves as “bossa nova dream pop” but who really make uplifting girl/boy led songs to watch the world go by to.

Labyrinth Ear

Future pop soaked in night-time atmospherics, classy female vocals and pulsing synth tones from two people from London known only as Tom and Emily.

Hot Colossus

Former Retarded Cop frontman Gaz Le Rock is back with a similar collection of catchy bright rock singalongs with titles like Hanging Around By The Bins.

A Dark Horse

The Dublin duo of Hugh Rodgers and James Parker are pricking up ears with the considered cinematic four songs featured on their free-download self-titled debut EP.
