Song of the Day: Sophie Ellis Bextor – Starlight

Toronto – If you read any of my posts, you will know that I have a certain fascination with female fronted uk electro/dance pop acts. What’s there not to like? The music is pretty damn good and you can argue one of the pioneers of this genre is Sophie Ellis Bextor.

I have loved Sophie Ellis Bextor since her inaugural track – “Murder on the Dance Floor” – and despite taking her time between records, she is back once again with new material. The new track is called “Starlight.” A straight up dance track featuring Sophie Ellis Bextor’s posh voice, this is a solid return to form to the SEB tracks of old. Kinda reminds me of Usher’s “DJ Got Us Falling in Love” for some reason. This is a single off her upcoming album Make a Scene which will be released on June 6th, along with the single. Check it out.

Song of the Day: Code Pie – North Side City View

Toronto – Welcome to a new maybe daily series called Song of the Day, which is what we’ll post if we can’t find anything to post/are too lazy to write up anything more then a few lines. Those social media expert types say you should post every day if you want to be popular, so here we are, comprising quality for quantity. ONLY NOT, because this song right here is one of quality.

A band of the Montreal variety, Code Pie have been around for a few years releasing albums here and there. Their latest release is Love Meets Rage off Indiecater Records. I have only heard this one track, but it seems like a toe tapping extravaganza with upbeat notes of piano, the occasional horn and strings (personal fav) and a slow rising coda that I may or may not use as my new morning alarm clock sound. Check out this tune, it goes pretty well with all this spring time stuff that’s going on.
