Check It Out #1 (26/08/15)

1. Tiny Dancer - The White Raven
Here's a wonderfully haunting and relaxed cover of an Elton John classic by one of our favourite bands. The White Raven have done it again, releasing yet another great song, personally I prefer this slower tempo to the original and it's an easy one to listen to... You can grab the single (with another song 'Second Conscious') here... We can't wait for an album from these guys! 

2. Mountain At My Gates - Foals
Foals are back with a brilliant, catchy track; 'Mountains At My Gates' was shared on 20th June (2015), premiering via BBC Radio 1 as Annie Mac's 'Hottest Record', then on the 29th July, they released the music video, which just like this song, is out of this world. A 3D video shot on a GoPro Hero, apart from their forthcoming album, what's there to be more excited about? (By the way, that's available to pre-order here).

3. Let It All Go - Birdy + Rhodes
I realise I included this song a couple of weeks ago, however, it was a different version and I feel had a slightly different feel to this one. Now that there is a music video and an expected release date for Rhodes' album 'Wishes' (18th September), I'm starting to get excited again. The song is lyrically and vocally stunning and the music video just finishes that off perfectly, enjoy - and if you do, you can pre-order the album here.

4. Weathered - Jack Garratt
So I've shared with you Jack's talent at playing multiple instruments at once, with a electronic focus, but here's another side to him and his music. An absolutely stunning acoustic live performance of his latest single 'Weathered' (available here) and it was filmed in a church, so you can imagine what the acoustics are like... This really is one to chill out to! 

5. Can't Feel My Face - The Weeknd
This is the latest chart hit from Canadian singer/songwriter and producer, The Weeknd; it was released on 8th June (2015) and is taken from his second studio album 'Beauty Behind The Madness', it's made it into the Top 10 in loads of charts, including peaking at #3 in the UK Singles Chart and #1 in the US Billboard 100. You can pre-order that album here if you like what you hear! 

Thanks for reading!
