Mystery Jets – Greatest Hits

By Will Oliver, May 16th 2012

“Greatest Hits” is the new single from Mystery Jets, off their new album Radlands, out now on iTunes and in stores on June 5. A funky effort that is a very easy song to get hooked onto. A sunny, feel-good sound who will find plenty of time during these hot summer days.

[new]: Mystery Jets – Someone Purer

Mystery Jets seem slightly overlooked if you ask me. I really enjoyed their last album Serotonin, and wish that more people gave them a try here in the states. They are coming back at us with a new album titled Radlands, due out on Rough Trade on April 30.

A track from the album called “Someone Purer” is streaming right now. It’s the type of sprawling rock that Mystery Jets have branded so well. It’s got me ready for the rest of the album, which is what a good preview track should do.

[new] Mystery Jets – Flash A Hungry Smile

Mystery Jets have made their new single “Flash A hungry Smile”, available for free download at their website in exchange for your email. It’s off new album Seratonin which is set to come out later this year (the rumored release date is July 5th).

It’s a highly enjoyable breezy synth-fest that deserved to be blasting with the windows down. Top tune boys! We can only hope that the rest of the album sounds just as glorious.

I also decided to throw in one of my favorite Mystery Jets anthems from their last album, . If you don’t have it, you have been missing out:

Band To Watch: Niteflights

By Will Oliver, March 7th 2011 — with 2 comments

Joyful, exciting, exuberant. These are adjectives that should be used to describe London newcombers Niteflights. These lads have the indie pop thing down to pact. They only have a set of demos, but oh boy, are they strong as hell. I don’t really know where to start. Each song is just a bum rush of all the best kinds of energy. Their songs reel you in with addictive pop hooks that will put you in a state of ecstasy.

Like all the best acts, they’ve a sound that is very much their own. Even so, there are traces of other bands sprinkled in between the fine lines. I hear traces of  Clap Your Hands Say Yeah, Hot Chip, and Mystery Jets in Niteflights DNA. That’s just me. I love the hell out of all three of those bands, so Niteflights should take them as a full fledged compliment.

I’m loving the hell out of these songs and I really think that you will too. This is just the beginning of their flight. I can’t wait to see where these guys land.

Posted below are two pop gems that you must download immediately. Try to resist “What’s The Point” & “Here Comes Tomorrow”:
